Billy Kaplan is the reincarnated son of Wanda Maximoff and Vision, which he didn't know until much later in his life, being raised by Jeff and Rebecca Kaplan. Along with the knowledge of his birth parents, he also discovered that he had a twin brother, Tommy Shepherd, also known as Speed.
After the discovery of his powers, Billy joined the Young Avengers under the pseudonym Asgardian for a period of time but later on changed it to Wiccan.
Plot Involvement Edit
The Infinity ParableEdit
House of MEdit
Billy was invited to Wanda Maximoff's dinner party alongside the rest of the Survivors. Early in the event, after Lucas Baker started his dangerous game, Billy ended up in a deadly poker game alongside Raven Darkholme and Shen. Billy ended up losing the game, which resulted in Lucas murdering him.
Billy later showed up in the "afterlife" which at first was an illusionary scenario created by Wanda to be Billy and Teddy Altman's wedding day. The illusion was interrupted by Mother, who wanted Billy's power for her own, though Wanda intervened and continued to send Billy and the others who died through other illusions.
Billy ended up being a key figure in the event, and the reason it even happened in the first place.
A future instance of Billy known as The Demiurge placed a seed in a man who became The Diver. Billy was to partake in the Eveline Incident and germinate the seed, causing it to blossom into the barrier that divides reality and the Dark Place.
Right Hand of the Magic GodEdit
Billy attended the emergency Coalition meeting about the whereabouts of Revanchist members Othinus, Dio Brando, and Enrico Pucci alongside Markus and Simon, whom Billy had met some time beforehand. However, after the multiverse was reset, Billy had disappeared alongside Sorey.
Billy later appeared during one of Othinus' many resets, able to keep his memories of what happened in reality. He was in a pained state, unable to resist Othinus for long, but stuck around long enough to discuss with the participants the nature of Great Spirits and their current status.
This section will be expanded upon further progression in the event.
The Infinity Parable Edit
In the epilogue of the event, Billy is briefly seen speaking with Arthur Collbrande and Xehanort, identified only as "Mr. X" here, about the nature of the Hearts of Light as well as malevolence, before returning to his home world later on.
