Over recent years, after Magneto's departure from active leadership of the group to pursue governance in Genosha, the Brotherhood has fragmented somewhat, due to a lack of authority figures within the ranks while their numbers continued to grow like an evolving street gang. In New York, however, a coherent movement has coalesced again under the lead of Magneto's twin children, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch.
