Real Name: Wanda Maximoff
First Appearance: X-Men No. 4 (March, 1964)
Powers: Using hexes, Maximoff can alter reality around her, which she did -- with disastrous consequences -- in the popular storyline "House of M" a few years ago.
Hero or Villain: That's a tough one. She's been manipulated by others, including her father Magneto, in the past, and her often unstable powers (and mindset) have resulted in catastrophe (ie, "No more mutants").
Why: Her connection to Magneto could theoretically tie mutant mythos into the Marvel movie universe without actually bringing in any X-Men. Plus, her powers are so dangerous she could bring even more underlying tension to the franchise.
