Wandavision: how & when to watch on Disney Plus, plus what to know

Young married {couples} can hardly get by with out an older relative asking after they’re going to have children. And you may’t make WandaVision with out comics followers asking whether or not they’re going to have children, similar to within the comics.

But “Do the Scarlet Witch and the Vision have kids?” is a extra difficult matter than you may assume, and the solutions are “Yes,” “No, they died,” and “Yes, they’re teenage superheroes now” concurrently. Let’s unpack this.

In the second episode of WandaVision ends with a shock and an enormous tease: Wanda’s sudden-onset being pregnant. But truthfully, it’s not weirder than Wanda or Vision’s powers — or that they appear to be trapped in a world that’s stuttering ahead by way of a brand new decade of sitcom historical past each day.

In the comics, Wanda and the Vision do have children. Famously so, you may say. And whereas we will’t say whether or not it’ll prove like this within the present, right here’s the comedian e-book background that the makers of WandaVision might be pulling from.

Billy and Tommy’s Excellent Adventure

In Marvel comedian continuity, the Scarlet Witch and Vision have twin boys: Billy Kaplan and Tommy Shepherd. Billy, who goes by Wiccan (or Asgardian, or Demiurge) inherited the Scarlet Witch’s magical, actuality warping powers. Tommy, who goes by Speed, took after Wanda’s personal twin brother Pietro/Quicksilver. He’s very quick, you see.

You is likely to be questioning why Billy and Tommy have completely different final names, and why neither of these final names are Wanda’s. It’s as a result of they’re truly the reincarnations of the Scarlet Witch and Vision’s lifeless twins, unknowingly raised by two completely different units of fully regular beginning mother and father.

The Scarlet Witch and the Vision obtained married in 1975’s Avengers #4, and in 1986’s The Vision and the Scarlet Witch, the 2 had a pair of dual boys, Billy and Tommy. How does a robotic father kids? Well, you don’t have to fret about organic logistics when your spouse is a witch who can use her powers to show magical power into actual dwell infants.

But comics should not sort to {couples} who must cope with with tedious narrative hindrances like “who’s taking care of the kids while we fight bad guys” and “given the tenuous nature of time in superhero comics, how old are these babies anyway?” In 1989’s Avengers West Coast #52, it was revealed that the infants have been made out of hell power, and Mephisto wished it again. The supreme satan of Marvel comics unmade the Wanda and Vision’s infants, and so they have been childless (and divorced, for unrelated causes) as soon as extra.

In the 2000s, Billy and Tommy have been re-introduced as teenage superheroes and recruited into the Young Avengers staff. Over a sequence of adventures they found that Mephisto hadn’t been fully profitable in reabsorbing the souls of child Billy and Tommy. Those souls had been reincarnated, because the sons of fully regular people Jeff and Rebecca Kaplan and Frank and Mary Shepherd, respectively.

Even although they’d completely different mothers and dads, and grew up in fully completely different households, Billy and Tommy seemed precisely like one another and have been twins. And the Scarlet Witch was their mother, and the Vision was their dad.

Is WandaVision going to make use of a lot of this?

Probably not, and that’s positive. Maybe Wanda and Vision could have twin infants with superpowers. Maybe they’ll have twin infants who’re finally revealed to be an enormous magical trick. Maybe they’ll simply have regular twin infants (although that consequence is so mundane that it looks like the least possible occasion).

All we will say proper now could be that Wanda undoubtedly appears pregnant, and there are plenty of completely different comedian e-book components that the makers of WandaVision may pull from to make that as bizarre as doable.
