What is the deal with Wanda and Vision’s kids? They are called the twins, though they look nothing alike. They have displayed all sorts of unusual powers ever since Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) “birthed” them, and it also seems like she have very little control over both Tommy (Jett Klyne) and Billy (Julian Hilliard). In a new clip for episode seven, which lands on Disney+ late tonight, a line of dialogue further hints at Billy’s unusual powers. Press play on the new WandaVision clip that just dropped and hear it for yourself.
We ran a piece on the site following the event of WandaVision episode six, where Wanda extended the boundaries of Westview in order to “save” Vision (Paul Bettany). But in the process, she jeopardized countless innocent individuals by pulling them into the Hex, possibly altering their cellular structure on a molecular level. According to my theory, the changes caused by Wanda’s CMBR energies won’t just grant Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) powers… it also will lead to the creation of Mutants in the MCU.
That’s my theory. So, when Wanda’s son Billy (Jullian Hilliard) says things like this, it makes him sound like head X-Men, Charles Xavier:
I use the term Mutant. This all could just be attributed to Wanda’s spells. In the comics, Billy and Tommy are constructs of Wanda’s magic (as they appear to be in the show), and they have connections to the demon lord Mephisto (as I expect them to have in WandaVision). Billy grows up to become Wiccan, and his powers are varied -- flight, lightning strikes, and tons of spells that resemble his mother’s enhanced powers. But something about the line that he says in the above WandaVision clip has me immediately thinking about Charles Xavier, and I don’t think that’s a mistake.
With only three episodes left in WandaVision, we expect to start getting some concrete answers in episode seven once it drops. There’s another unusual bit at the end of this episode. Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) is still wearing her Halloween costume, even though the previous “episodes” of the show that she has created have jumped the characters ahead by a decade. Is she losing full control over the Hex? Is she no longer paying as close attention to the details? And what was left of Vision after she made sure that the boundaries of the Hex extended out to include him? The S.W.O.R.D. scenes in this week’s episode feel like they will be extremely important.
