A theory claims that the X-Men have always been a secret part of the MCU. This is so despite Patrick Stewart’s Professor X’s arrival in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The X-Men and Professor X made an unexpected appearance in the Doctor Strange 2 trailer. Doctor Strange is battling across dimensions with America Chavez and even faces trial for alleged Multiversal crimes as Benedict Cumberbatch pacts with Scarlet Witch messing with the Multiverse. However, a “Mystery Voice” tells the jury during Stephen Strange’s trial that “We should tell him the truth”. The X-Men are now a part of the MCU thanks to this voice.
After years of anticipation, Marvel’s Patrick Stewart moment is finally here. Marvel now has exclusive permission to use the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. This is all thanks to the studio’s completion of its acquisition of Fox entertainment assets in 2019. However, the X-Men have not yet made their way into the MCU. With Evan Peters’ Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver, WandaVision teased the X-arrival. Men’s As it turned out, that was all part of the plan. Ralph Bohner, the character played by Peters in the Disney+ series, was actually a brainwashed civilian.
Though the X-Men appeared in the Doctor Strange 2 trailer, they may have been around all along. A theory on Reddit claims that the X-Men have always been part of the MCU. However, Professor X had previously used Cerebro to wipe out the entire world before the events of 2008’s Iron Man. According to the theory, humans and mutants engaged in a long-running conflict. Consequently, this ended in a pact to erase human knowledge of the X-Men.
Magneto agreed to hand over his children, Wanda and Pietro, to a human family in exchange for their safety and happiness. As for Professor X, Patrick Stewart’s wheelchair-bound character, he would be unable to participate in the endeavor. Xavier’s school has also always been around, but it’s been working behind the scenes to assist young mutants for some time now. Because of Blip’s effects, mutants were brought back into the public eye.
It’s possible that this theory will help Marvel keep mutants in the MCU indefinitely. Incredibly powerful, Professor X’s handy mutant-finding machine Cerebro lets its user find mutants all over the world and even talk to and control them. In Spider-Man: No Way Home, Marvel did a global memory wipe, so the MCU could do the same with Professor X.
Even in Doctor Strange 2, this theory could explain why Professor X is investigating Doctor Strange after he was implicated in the worldwide memory wipe that brought him to Professor X’s attention during Doctor Strange 2. To put it another way, the theory would enable Marvel’s X-Men to seamlessly enter the MCU, even if Magneto is Wanda’s father.
There is, however, a problem. As with the Eternals, the Eternals were essentially able to live on Earth for thousands of years without interfering with humankind’s problems. Doctor Strange already erased the world’s memory in No Way Home, so it’s unnecessary to erase the memories of the X-Men characters. In addition, the Multiverse allows for anything, so there’s no need to rehash old tales. When it comes down to it, there is no better explanation than Professor X’s Cerebro for why mutants appear in Doctor Strange’s Multiverse of Madness.
