I don't see myself as a Spiderman. More like a Kamandi.

Blah! Who wants to be a super hero. I would rather be the villain. The Beyonder suits me.

Real name: Wanda Maximoff Isn't "Maximoff" a male last name?
Occupation: Adventurer, former criminal
Wanda Maximoff now fights for the greater good of all mankind.
Chief among these are her probability-altering hex-spheres -- finite pockets of reality-disrupting, psionic force that cause random disturbances in the molecular-level probability fields surrounding their targets. As a result, unlikely phenomena occur. - I like it!
But wait... What is it - her fighting skills exceed her intelligence? Well... this is very true, I guess

Doom is pleased.

Comics writers aren't particularly cognizant of such things. :roll: What's an appropriate female version anyway - Maximova or some such? Originally though she and her bother were always together, so "Wanda and Pietro Maximoff" seemed to make sense. Even if the writers knew better, having different last names for a brother and sister would probably have been deemed too confusing for young US audiences. And it's entirely possible that "Maximoff" is what got stamped on her papers whenever she emigrated to the US, and she didn't care enough to change it.
Anyway, who knows what naming conventions are appropriate for Romany in the fictional country of Wundagore? Is "Maximoff" even a Romany name?
Occupation: Adventurer, former criminal
Indeed. In fact, you and your brother probably should have appeared in the X-Men movie among the bad guys.

Heh... Dr. Octopus... I can live with that. I always saw myself as more of the crusading type, but evil genius is good too.

Maximova will work. Here is my attempt to "maprapute" Maximova, i.e. to represent an authentic variant:
Makcimoba

What can I say... :roll:

Ah, this is perfectly possible. My papers exhibit 3 variants of my last name spelling - live evidence of futile attempts to represent a beauty of Slavic names in a poor, reduced local alphabet.

An operative for the Canadian government? To do what? Drink Molson and eat back bacon while designing modern igloos?
