The children of Wanda and Vision, Tommy and Billy, are right now the key to open the meaning of the series: if they are alive, they are susceptible to die and be kidnapped, to open the door to Mephisto and / or Nightmare, to Agatha Harkness , Doctor Doom and the Young Avengers; if they are just a figment of Wanda’s imagination we are entering new territory.
Come on, you must have asked yourself: Are the children of Wanda and Vision alive in the WandaVision series ? Are Tommy and Billy a figment of Wanda’s imagination / magic / trap or did she actually give birth to the twins when she was with Monica Rambeau? There is going to be the key to the series. Seriously.
We are still not very clear who Pietro really is(Is Evan Peters the Quicksilver from Fox’s X-Men movies and therefore the first mutant we see his paw officially appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe or is he a new character posing as Wanda’s brother and it turns out that, hey, he is the same actor who once made his family bloodline for another film studio?
And in either case, is his brother the villain of the series, does he work for the villain or, innocent of him, has he been abducted from the Multiverse?), nor who really is Agnes(Is it, as the great theorists of the series say, a mix between the witch Agatha Harkness, Wanda’s mentor and friend, and the villain Nightmare, who posed as a psychologist to deceive her?), Nor where the hell is Dottie’s character, or if Vision is more alive than dead, and we have forgotten to ask ourselves the most important thing: what about Wanda’s children?
If you are a fan of comics, you will already have your own idea, but if you do not have the slightest idea of what happened in Marvel comics with Wanda’s children, the normal thing is that you do not know how important they are.
If, as Monica Rambeau says when she returns to the SWORD base, they are real, then, dear viewer, we have two options: it happens as in the comics, that the children are ‘real’ and Wanda ‘gives birth’ to them using magic, resorting to pieces of the soul (to call him something) of a villain named Mephisto and the series follows more or less the same steps of the original story, which means that children die to later reincarnate as other children (and end up becoming two superheroes, Speed and Wiccan), or Marvel Studios forgets all this, the children are also real, they have nothing to do with Mephisto, but they are susceptible to a full-blown kidnapping by the new Marvel villain on duty.
If they’re not real, as soon as Wanda’s magic hex is broken they’ll end up, plop, disappearing. What is clear is that Wanda is going to have to face a new loss, which we do not know what the format will be: déjá vu or surprise surprise.
The series, as you know, plays with us all the time. Children, as in comics, have been conceived by the work of the holy spirit(because Vision, we have already shown that, no matter how badly we are, he cannot conceive no matter how much sytozoid will he puts in), they have developed, mind you what a coincidence, the same powers as in the comics (super speed like his uncle Mercury, and the magical powers of his mother, Tommy) and, come on, look, what cuckoos, they wear costumes inspired by their superhero clothes on Halloween.
Because one is shot from Speed, just like his uncle Mercurio (Quicksilver for all those born after 1985), and another from Wiccan, with the blue headband in his hair and the maroon cape made of Wiccan foxes. There are many coincidences. At this point, with three episodes remaining until the series concludes, anything can happen:
Marvel Studios may be adapting the comics in its own way, but it may also be completely reinventing the story, winking at comic book fans. And I say that they can shoot anywhere because the vast majority of viewers, as happened in their day with movies (let’s see if as many people as have seenAvengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War have read Jim Starlin’s comic …) they don’t know the general story with what they can do whatever they want.
If you think about it, only unrepentant comic book fans bite their nails thinking that if Mephisto is going to come out, that if we are going to see the Young Avengers, that if this and that if the other. But if you think about it a little more, rewriting the stories opens up infinite possibilities. Imagine that in the end Evan Peters is Fox’s Quicksilver, he is a mutant, and it turns out that there is a multiverse. If so, we have no idea what to expect.
And if they are reasonably faithful to the comics, changing a Mephisto here and putting a Nightmare there (remember: a character that was supposed to have appeared in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness), putting Agatha Harkness in the way, they can give you shape the story and deliver an exciting story just like they did with Infinity War and Endgame. Deep down, what the series is not going to give up is to introduce one more element of madness for Wanda: whether they are alive or dead, Mephisto / Nightmare tears their soul apart or not, Agatha Harkness kidnaps them or not, or they are a fiction that will disappear when the spell disappears, it is clear that Wanda is going to suffer. Because the Vision, no matter how much it hurts, have come to this world to suffer.
