Throughout the series, fans lose their minds after each Easter egg and tilt reference may become bigger. In the latest episode, Agatha Harkness gave up a detail and passed proof The mutant already exists, and it has the potential to change the entire Marvel movie universe.
When Agatha tried to understand the source of her great power, this episode revolved around an in-depth study of Wanda’s backstory. Agatha was surprised by Wanda’s ability to perform magic on such a huge scale, and traveled all over Wanda’s memories, trying to discover where this power came from.

Since Wanda originated from Age of Ultron, Obviously, her initial motivation for revenge came from her and her brother’s near-death experience in Sokovia. Wanda thought it was lucky because the weapon was a dud, trapped in a pile of rubble, staring at a missile that Stark Industries could detonate at any time. After radicalization, she accepted Hydra’s “Mind Stone” experiment, which was initially considered the source of her and her brother’s strength. However, it turns out that a deeper story happened.
When visiting Wanda’s childhood, Agatha pointed out the hugeness of the coincidence that Stark’s weapons never exploded. She reshaped Wanda’s ability not because of the “Mind Stone”, but because of the natural talent of “Mind Magic”. If the Mind Stone could not further empower them, the “Hexagon Magic” would have “withered on the vine “. This is just a small reminder, but it doesn’t take much time to get the connection between the innate power identified by Agatha and the X gene, the pioneer of mutation ability in the comics.
According to this explanation, mutants may have existed for several generations, and their power is so subtle and subtle that people rarely realize it. Major trauma or exposure to infinite energy (such as endless stones) can catalyze the X gene, activating it into a recognizable superhuman ability. This not only connects the origins of Wanda and Pietro to the comics and becomes their mutant history, but also creates an easy way to make the mutants exist in the MCU without actual large-scale changes.
For Wanda, her pedigree is obviously deeper than simple mutation power. Agatha calls her the “Scarlet Witch” and associates her with the greater magical elements of the MCU, but for her brother Pietro, the explanation is like an activated mutant gene It’s as simple as that. Unlike all the antics that Wanda changes reality, Pietro is just an accelerator. Once exposed to the Mind Stone, its power will be activated. Under similar circumstances, perhaps a large-scale event that occurred with Wanda’s own encouragement may awaken the genes in the remaining mutant populations. The X-Men finally have a clear way to enter the MCU, they Wanda Vision Thanks for it.
