Before last week, the general public had never heard of the names Quicksilver or Scarlet Witch. Now however, thanks to a legal battle between Marvel Studios and Fox, practically everyone is talking about the mutant siblings! Born the children of Magneto, the legal rights to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are very tricky in that both characters have played integral parts in both the "X-Men" and "Avengers" comic book series.
Basically, as Joss Whedon made apparent in his initial "Avengers 2" reveal, when it comes down to these two characters, it seemed to be all about whoever got to them first. Now Bryan Singer's cast Quicksilver in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and Whedon still intends to use him in "Avengers 2." But despite the attention, the vast majority of people still have absolutely no idea who they are. But not to worry! MTV Splash Page has the perfect introductory reading list for all of your Quicksilver and/or Scarlet Witch needs.
