It's no secret that fans are hoping that Magneto will pop up in WandaVision just to make things truly weird for Wanda Maximoff and Vision. But is it possible that the show will actually introduce a mutant with a connection to Scarlet Witch? Will Polaris finally appear in the MCU?

Polaris seems like a possible candidate who could really spice things up in WandaVision. After all, the character has already been introduced in The Gifted where she was played by Emma Dumont. Adding Polaris to the mix could really make things more interesting in the MCU.

Who is Polaris?

In the comic books, Lorna Dane was initially introduced as a villain but has evolved to join the X-Men and X-Factor. A mutant who controls magnetism, Lorna inherited her powers from her father Magneto. She is the half-sister of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

Is Polaris Part of the MCU?

Polaris was played by Emma Dumont in Fox's cancelled live-action series The Gifted. However, the show was set in a different universe and timeline from the MCU as it followed how the X-Men have disappeared. For now, Polaris is not part of the MCU but there are speculations that she will appear in WandaVision.

Will WandaVision Introduce Polaris to the MCU?

Several fans have been hoping that Dumont's version of Polaris will eventually show up in the MCU and it seems like WandaVision could be the best way to do so. After all, Wanda has been warping reality in the series and it would make sense for a family member, especially one she doesn't know about, makes an appearance.

 

Polaris' possible debut in the MCU has even been teased by Kevin Feige when he pointed out that Wanda has "a lot of family members in the comics" and that WandaVision "is more about that relationship with Vision." Although some assumed he was referring to Magneto and Quicksilver, others noted it could be Lorna instead.

Will Polaris show up in WandaVision? Keep watching the series to find out. The third episode, Now In Color, is currently streaming on Disney+.
