'WandaVision' May Have Introduced MCU's First Gay Baby Superhero

This article contains spoilers for the latest episode of Disney+ WandaVision.

The third episode of the smash hit Disney+ show WandaVision debuted today and introduced Wanda and Vision’s twin sons, Billy and Tommy at the end of the episode.

Fans of the comics know that one of the twins, Billy, grows up to be Wiccan, a gay teen superhero with reality altering powers similar to his mom. His brother Tommy has speed-based powers like his uncle Pietro Maximoff.

Time works mysteriously in this TV show universe Wanda finds herself trapped in. In the first episode, Wanda and Vision have a hard time remembering anything about their pasts, and in the second, a previously not pregnant Wanda suddenly was extremely pregnant after a camera switch.

Wiccan is just a baby right now, but with the way time and reality keep bending I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him as a teen in a few episodes.

Wiccan is a member of the Young Avengers in the comics alongside other characters who were recently announced to be joining the MCU like Kate Bishop Hawkeye (Hailee Steinfeld), Ant-Man’s daughter Stature (Kathryn Newton), and America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez).

He also dates, and eventually marries Hulkling, a fellow teen superhero who is a hybrid of two alien species, the Kree and the Skrull, both of whom were major players in the Captain Marvel film. There are rumors that Hulkling could show up in Captain Marvel 2.

Wiccan is being introduced right when the MCU is queering its roster, with the aforementioned America Chavez, a lesbian, as well as Brian Tyree Henry playing Phastos, who has a husband and child, in The Eternals, and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, who will be looking for a queen now that she's the new king of Asgard in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. It’s going to be a very gay decade in the MCU.

WandaVision releases new episodes every Friday on Disney+ and models each one on a classic TV show. The first two episodes were The Dick Van Dyke Show and Bewitched. The latest episode was based on The Brady Bunch.
