Default Re: The Official Scarlet Witch Thread

According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel has trademarked "Registered Gifted" for use in its films and TV shows. It is possible that they mean to call people with naturally occurring superpowers "gifted" instead of mutants. That would avoid any conflict with Fox's stranglehold on the "M" word, at least. The assumption could still be that they were born with innate abilities, just as people with higher intellects, artistic talent or the physical ability for sports are born with those traits.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
