Avengers: The Children’s Crusade (2012) #1 (of 9)
“And you think I have the power to do something like that… Because you believe Tommy and I really are the sons of the Scarlet Witch?”
“Here we go…”
“Tommy has doubts, but how else do you explain a speedster and a witch named “Thomas” and “William” who could be twins?”
What, it’s been months and Tony can’t be bothered to fork a few hundred dollars and have you two DNA tested? You’re going to tell me that at the very least the two of you still haven’t confirmed you’re twins? Or that SHIELD or Tony Stark himself doesn’t have a DNA sample for one of their longest timed members turned most feared mutant on the planet?
No one’s given anyone a paternity test?
But I suppose that level of thinking would also mean like… Tommy and Billy having to think of how weird it is to be on a team with a teenage version of their former kind of dad?
Nevermind, it’s okay, that’d be a weird thing to think about. Leave this giant plot hole in its place instead.
I do love Billy calling out the Avengers on the hypocrisy of how they handle people though. I always love when heroes get called on these things because it’s like. At least the writer’s can admit that they’re making the characters contrived to justify what they’re doing. And you can feel that way and still love the characters on the receiving end.
Just look at how many Batman reviews I’ve given!
