|Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) - Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen)|
*** SPOILER WARNING ***
Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch first appeared in The X-Men #4 (1964) and are twin brother and sister. Quicksilver is obviously fast, but not as fast as he ultimately became in the comics where he can run at supersonic speeds and travel through time.
Whedon says Scarlet Witch has "telekinesis, she can move things and she can get inside your head so that all your worst fears or doubts come to the fore." Olsen confirms that "She messes with all the Avengers to such an extend that they have to go somewhere and come back as a unit." This could mean that her powers will not be as strong as in the comics, where she can bend reality and reshape the entire world.
One thing to note is that our original assumption that the two were given powers by the "Terragon Mist" is incorrect and they got they're powers from Hydra experiments with Loki's staff. Newsarama noted that the digital comic called Avengers: Age of Ultron Prelude - This Scepter'd Isle said, "Strucker, acting on behalf of Hydra, used the scepter on test subjects in the fictional European city of Sokovia to 'unlock' any powers they might have."

What do you think of the twins? Are they going to rock the Avengers? Are you sorry the powers are changing?
