This is the film universe, not the comics universe. Whedon will obviously have to change some things that were in the comics in order to adapt the characters for the films. Marvel cannot use the mutant angle or Magneto as Wanda & Pietro's father, a fact that has been repeated in this thread ad nauseam. Do you
understand the concept of adaptation, or has that gone completely over your
head? I'm curious because you appear to expect the films to slavishly follow the comics when that has never been the case.
