Marvel fans know Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) as the witch from WandaVision on Disney+. The series starred Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision. It also introduced two characters MCU fans will see again in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 6, 2022) – the twin sons Billy (Julian Hilliard) and Tommy (Jett Klyne). In the last Marvel Infinity Comic – Hulking & Wiccan, Agatha Harkness has dastardly plans for Wanda’s son Billy Kaplan aka Wiccan.
The Hulking & Wiccan Infinity Comic can be found on the Marvel Unlimited App, by Josh Trujillo, Jodi Nishijima, and Matt Milla. The new series follows Billy and his new husband Teddy Altman aka Hulkling in their palace in space. Teddy is the Emperor of Space being the son of the Skrull Princess Anelle and the Kree Mar-Vel.
They welcome their fellow LGBT+ Marvel comics characters to celebrate a moment of peace, including Northstar (Jean-Paul Beaubier) and Iceman (Bobby Drake). However, trouble ensues when Billy and Teddy are asked to decide if they want to continue to live in their grand space palace or return home to Earth. Billy wants to go home, and Teddy feels they should stay in space.
However, before a decision can be made, the happy couple is separated. Billy is returned to Earth and Teddy stays in his castle. They awake with no memories of their marriage and in brand new relationships. It is then revealed that this has all been orchestrated by none other than WandaVision villain Agatha Harkness.
This is far from the first time Agatha has gone up against Billy. In Marvel Comics, it was Agatha who erased Wanda’s memories of her sons after it was revealed that they were never real and were actually manifestations of the demon Mephisto. MCU fans will remember vividly when Agatha killed Billy’s pet dog Sparky in WandaVision.
Marvel fans were delighted to learn that the breakout star of WandaVision would be getting her own Disney+ show, Agatha: House of Harkness, which does not have an official release date at this time. It could take the villainous witch back to her Salem Witch Trial days or take place after Wanda’s return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on May 6, 2022.
The Doctor Strange (2016) will pit Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) against Wanda as she turns to the dark side and embraces her chaos magic. Agatha predicted Wanda would need her help again at some point, which is why the Scarlet Witch spared her in the WandaVision finale. Marvel fans last saw Wanda studying the Darkhold to find a way to bring back her twin sons, so Agatha could go up against Billy in the MCU just like she currently is in Marvel Comics.
