In addition to the Maximoffs, there have been times and timelines where they had other parentage. In Heroes Reborn, The Enchantress was their mother. Prior to the Magneto reveal, it was thought that The Whizzer was their father. I don't particularly like either take, but the fact is, Magneto was kind of a shock value reveal, not something that has been part of their characters since day one.
