And really that's an idea they can expand on, since I've only seen one episode of Doctor Who use magic/sorcery and that explanation was given very briefly. So Marvel could really own that idea in pop culture.
There is a closer analogue: the Ultimate characterizations. If they incorporated that (sans the dueling banjos,) it would not compromise the structure of the MCU.

Having said that, I would be fine if they went either way for the source of her powers. As posters better than me have said, Whedon is skilled at handling the supernatural.
