Notes Continuity Notes: Wanda refers to herself as a mutant. This is something she has believed for a long time. However, it is revealed years later in Uncanny Avengers Vol 2 #5 that she was the subject of genetic manipulation by the High Evolutionary. In order to cover up his work, he made it so she would register as a mutant whenever she was examined. She is actually a witch as revealed during the course of Scarlet Witch Vol 2 #1-15.

Continuity Errors: The Scarlet Witch goes to Doctor Doom's castle in Latveria, a location that is said to have been long abandoned. Wanda is likely referring to Doctor Doom's castle in Upstate New York which Doctor Doom first battled the Fantastic Four back in Fantastic Four #5. The Avengers visited the abandoned castle as well circa Avengers #58/Avengers Annual #2. One could presume that Wanda is mixing up the two.
