I feel like it is still a little ways in the making before it happens…but…isn’t it time for us to see Billy take on the mantle of Sorcerer Supreme?
That’s what I have been wanting to see for forever now. He’s one of my absolute FAVORITE Marvel characters and we know his origin(s), we know his past, present, and distant future…but not how he gets there.
Yeah, right now it is still high time for Dr. Strange because of his intro to the MCU. (Don’t get me wrong, I thought he was AWESOME and completely enjoyed his movie.) But! If you read the comics, it just seems like Billy coming along would be an answer to the current problems.
Um…spoilers ahead if you haven’t caught up yet.
1: Dr. Strange fought the whole cult of Empirikul. All of them were focused on killing off all magic. In some of the panels, we saw a lot of other magic users brought together to be burned at the stake (like Scarlet Witch, Magik, Doom, and a couple of others). Wiccan wasn’t there.
2: Dr. Strange and this depowered team of Witches and Sorcerers went out and about collecting magical items to fight back and Wiccan still wasn’t there.
3: Where was he during all this “Last Days of Magic” storyline? Did he experience any of it?
4: Mordo shows up quite a while after all this. Dr. Strange is still weak with practically no power…yet Mordo was still powerful and magical as ever. My bet is that Wiccan is too.
5: Now Mr. Misery is Dr. Strange’s focal point baddy. So much of his plot device is that he’s a price Dr. Strange’s magic has cost him. All magic comes for a price…but it seems that only the good guys are having to pay any of it.
1: She went on a long long journey to heal magic. LONG STORY SHORT, she found the source of magic and defeated what was weakening it.
2: During all this, she met her mother and discovered that she is still on a path to self discovery. Namely…who the hell is her father now?!
3: If her mother was super powerful, I feel and hope it’s safe to assume that he was/is too. Maybe that ties in to why Billy was born to write the laws of magic?
4: Wanda has also been paying a price for her magic. Each spell she cast aged her and brought her closer to an early death. That’s been reset…but it sounds like a “law” that can be “rewritten” by someone.
~Dr. Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme~
1: Billy is revealed to be the Sorcerer Supreme in the future timeline. He is wearing the Eye and has the Cape of Levitation…
1.a: THAT I ALSO WANT EXPLAINED!!!! (It looks like the fashion love child of Cloak and the Cape. Did Cloak also die and just bequeath himself to Billy and/or just merge with the Cape?) Dr. Strange noticed the cape and all Wiccan said was basically, “Long story.”
2: We know that Dr. Strange dies and that’s what ultimately makes the mantle of Sorcerer Supreme get passed on.
~Young/New Avengers/Future Xmen
1: Yeah Billy/Wiccan is still growing and powering up…but he’s basically already proving to be unlimited. He started doing magic on his own. He’s practiced, trained, and become more and more powerful.
2: Everyone keeps saying that he is the Demiurge and is destined to rewrite the laws of magic.
3: Also…he joins the Xmen and ¿leads? them.
Well…doesn’t it feel like it’s FINALLY time that story begins?
It is time to see “Wiccan” appearing on our local comic book shelves.
