New Queen Emerged - Deformed Wing

This was a strange event today!  I had a new queen emerge and try to fly out on her maiden flight only to fall to the ground.  I inspected her and found a small group of bees trying to get her to fly.  Upon closer inspection I found that there was something wrong with her wings.

Notice the right wing.  I know that this could be caused by three things.  A virus, Varroa Mite damage or genetic.   Not good.
