Mini Bio: Pietro is best known as the twin brother of Wanda Maximoff, and the son of Magneto, so I’ll refer you to my Scarlet Witch Character Profile, so I don’t have to bore you by repeating myself again.

But after their shared history with the X-Men and the Avengers, Pietro branches out on his own. He sometimes works with the Avengers and the X-Men, but due to his mind being so much faster than everyone else’s (thanks to his powers), he tends to be a loner.

Pietro does, eventually, fall in love though. After being injured by a Sentinel, Pietro is taken in by the Inhumans and is nursed back to health. There, he meets Crystal, an Inhuman, and they fall in love and have a daughter called Luna.

During House Of M, Pietro encourages Wanda to warp reality so the mutants are the dominant species on the planet, but is one of the mutants to lose his powers when she says the pivotal words ‘no more mutants’. He does regain them, but it comes at great price.
