Any long-time reader of Marvel Comics knows that the Scarlet Witch’s family tree is a complicated one - and that was true even before Wanda Maximoff and the Vision had “kids.” With Magneto for a (maybe) father, Quicksilver for a brother, and Ultron as her father-in-law, Wanda has always enjoyed some interesting familial dynamics, but the story of her pseudo-sons, Wiccan and Speed, is perhaps the most convoluted of all.
William and Thomas Maximoff are born in 1986’s Vision and the Scarlet Witch #12 - but born might not be quite the right word, given that their supposed father is a robot named Vision. In any case, the twin boys don’t stick around for very long, but then they’re brought back to life as in 2005's Young Avengers - kind of. The saga of Scarlet Witch and her sons is the sort that needs to be understood in detail before it can be comprehended, and even then, it’s a pretty difficult one to grasp.
