Now I know many of us are impatient to get into the theatre in 2015 to see Joss Whedon's upcoming project, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now one of the big things we know about it already is that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will be the latest additions to the team. However, was adding them a very good idea?

I know, I know... "Well it's too late to change it now" I understand, just hear me out.

The deal with Marvel Studios and Fox was that BOTH had the right to use these characters, but if Marvel chooses to use them they may not reference the fact that they are Mutants, OR that they are the children of the one and only MAGNETO!

This is my problem. I LOVE the characters of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, but one of the things that I LOVE about them is that they are Magneto's children, which makes them ten times more interesting as it is. It also makes for an easy story that can turn out incredible. House of M is my favorite example. If you haven't heard about it, check it out. Here's a link to a site that will sum it up for you in case you don't feel like ordering it off of 'Ebay'

Now the fact that they are mutants is also a big problem for me. How are they going to explain their new origins? I'm sure none of us want to see Quicksilver leaving for work when all of a sudden a lighting bolt strikes some chemicals that shatter all over him giving him super speed if you catch my drift...

What I'm trying to say is that I don't think it's a good idea, even if it's too late to avoid. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments
