Here’s Everything We Know So Far About Marvel’s Future

The Fantastic Four have been sent adrift in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since Avengers: Endgame, the dramatic conclusion to the so-called Infinity Saga,

The Fantastic Four have been sent adrift in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since Avengers: Endgame, the dramatic conclusion to the so-called Infinity Saga, Marvel has produced 12 films and television episodes in what studio president Kevin Feige refers to as “Phase 4” of the MCU, none of which seemed really related to one another.

The length of the Disney+ television series makes it difficult for casual fans to keep up with the MCU’s events. And Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury no longer appears in post-credits sequences to draw the dots between flicks and hint at a potential danger. Many people have been left wondering where this is all leading.

Marvel Studios has established a practice of previewing upcoming projects at San Diego Comic-iconic Con’s Hall H for over a decade. And, at Saturday’s Marvel Studios panel, Kevin Feige sought to reassure fans that, indeed, a plan exists. And, certainly, the events of Moon Knight, Doctor Strange, Loki, and Wakanda Forever are all connected in some way. And, certainly, the Avengers will appear in some capacity.

Phases 5 and 6 of the MCU, according to Feige, will culminate in two ensemble Avengers films: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. And don’t panic, X-Men and Fantastic Four fans. Those superheroes will soon infiltrate the MCU.

Here’s all you need to know about Marvel’s future.

Phase 4 of Wakanda Forever will come to a conclusion.

Phase 4 has been a shambles. Marvel found itself without three of its top heroes after Avengers: Endgame, most notably Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), who all withdrew from the superhero industry. The company also unexpectedly lost Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman, who died in 2020. Boseman, one of Marvel’s shining new stars, would have served as the franchise’s cornerstone.

Even when Marvel attempted to introduce new characters, such as Florence Pugh’s Yelena, and elevate established ones, such as Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, to more significant roles, destiny interfered. Marvel’s intended release timetable was thrown off by the epidemic. (For example, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was meant to debut before Wandavision, not after it.) The alteration allowed the authors to alter crucial story aspects.)

In the opening seconds of their Comic-Con presentation, Marvel implicitly recognized the recent global instability. Miss Minutes, Loki’s malicious cartoon clock, welcomed hundreds of fans eagerly awaiting news on their favorite superheroes. “You got it here to a Comic-Con panel at the end of time after surviving a looping, eternal catastrophe,” she added.

The sentiment was mirrored by Feige. He described Phase 4 as “resetting the MCU and meeting all these new characters.” He went on to say that Phase 4 would soon come to an end with a final program and film: The She-Hulk series, starring Tatiana Maslany as Bruce Banner’s cousin, and the long-awaited Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever.

On Saturday, Marvel finished their presentation with the Wakanda Forever video. Before introducing the teaser, writer-director Ryan Coogler remembered Boseman excitedly gripping his shoulder when Coogler presented the first Black Panther trailer at Comic-Con in 2017. “I swear I can feel his touch on me right now.” “Chad is no longer physically with us, but his spirit, passion, intellect, pride, and culture, as well as the effect he had on our profession, will be felt forever,” the director stated. “We poured our hearts out for Chadwick.”

The Wakanda Forever clip focused on grieving characters like as Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and Shuri (Letitia Wright) (Boseman). The teaser introduced fans to Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne), a genius who creates her own Iron Man-like suit and assumes the Iron Man mantle. In the next phase of the MCU, she will star in her own Disney+ series, Ironheart.

In Wakanda Forever, all of these heroes will prepare to face a troop of amphibious humans from Atlantis led by Namor (Tenoch Huerta). Wakanda has already battled with Atlantis in the comics. It’s unknown what will cause them to clash in the upcoming flick.

At the very end of the video, we see the famous Black Panther claws emerge, but we don’t know who is wearing the costume. Feige has said unequivocally that Marvel would not replace T’Challa. Fans have speculated that T’Challa’s old gear would be worn by Shuri, Nakia, or perhaps a parallel universe Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan, who performed the part in the first film and is a longstanding collaborator of Coogler). (The gold piping on Killmonger’s outfit in Black Panther suggests that the multiverse may send Killmonger back to us.)

As the teaser concluded, Coogler and the actors embraced onstage in an emotional moment.

Kang is the next major threat in Phases 5 and 6.

Here’s Everything We Know So Far About Marvel’s Future

Thanos (Josh Brolin) connected the early Marvel films. Beginning with Avengers, the purple, murderous extraterrestrial loomed big as the universe’s main menace. He appeared in post-credits sequences and made cameo appearances in Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor: Ragnarok. Even though he wasn’t in a movie, the Infinity Stones he desired were. For years, the audience had known that the Avengers would have to battle him—and, in one of the finest twists in blockbuster movie, journey back in time to fight him again. Every picture gradually led up to that point, and he provided all of our heroes a cause to gather together.

Kevin Feige intimated during the Comic-Con panel that Kang the Conqueror may play a similar capacity in Phases 5 and 6 of the MCU. He brought onstage actor Jonathan Majors and presented him as the wicked genius bent on conquering the universe. Kang will appear as the antagonist in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but it is just the beginning of his desire for domination.

“This is launching off Phase 5 for a very particular purpose,” Feige said of Quantumania. “And right there, Mr. Jonathan Majors, you met him.” The next film in Phase 6 will be named Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, according to Feige. (There will be more on Phase 6 later.)

So Majors is Marvel’s future. That’s fantastic news, especially given Majors’ amazing debut as a Kang version in the television program Loki. Kang would represent a greater existential threat to the MCU than Thanos ever did in only one episode of that series.

Another important indication to Marvel’s future might be found in the title Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. Another Avengers squad will be formed. Who precisely will make up that crew is unknown. However, Phase 5 is laying the groundwork.

Our street-level antagonists will be the Thunderbolts.

Here’s Everything We Know So Far About Marvel’s Future

If Kang the Conqueror is bent on conquering the whole cosmos, there must be some other wicked dangers closer to home, right? Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, will most likely command that crew. In the end-credits sequences of series and movies such as Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Black Widow, she has been gathering a team of anti-heroes and villains.

We now know that the team’s name will be the Thunderbolts. The Thunderbolts were initially portrayed in the comics as a group of heroes who banded together after the Avengers were proclaimed dead. However, they finally exposed themselves to be supervillains in disguise.

Given that Iron Man and Black Widow are no longer alive, and Captain America and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) are no longer active, it seems to reason that the Thunderbolts would appear now to take advantage of the absence of A-list Avengers on the scene. (I’m sorry, Hulk.)

Thunderbolts embers might feature, among others, Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Yelena (Pugh), and John Walker (Wyatt Russell). Given that Sam Wilson has previously fought Baron Zemo and John Walker in his program, it’s fair to assume he’ll face the Thunderbolts in one or more flicks.

Phase 6 sees the arrival of The Fantastic Four and Secret Wars.

Here’s Everything We Know So Far About Marvel’s Future

As amazing as the Thunderbolts may seem, Marvel Studios understands that fans want more from the MCU. They specifically anticipate an Avengers film. That’s why Feige announced three films planned to debut in the MCU’s far-off Phase 6: the long-awaited revival of the Fantastic Four series, Avengers vs. Kang, and Secret Wars.

Before you get too excited over the above image, keep in mind that no one from Marvel has announced that John Krasinski will reprise his role as Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four movie. In fact, it seemed like Marvel Studios hired Krasinski in the character of a parallel-universe Reed Richards in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness just to gruesomely murder him and therefore convey a (playful, though slightly grim) message to fans about their fan-casting aspirations.

The two previously announced Avengers films are The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars. We don’t yet know who will make up this new Avengers squad, but Marvel already has a lot of pieces in place, including Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and maybe Spider-Man if Tom Holland agrees to reprise his role as Peter Parker.

Based on the title, we may anticipate Kang Dynasty to depict Kang attempting to achieve his objective of ruling the universe. It remains to be seen how Kang’s mission will set up Secret Wars. Two Secret Wars tales have been written by Marvel Comics. All of the superheroes are whisked to a combat arena planet to fight in the 1980s version of Secret Wars. The plot becomes a little more complicated in a 2015 iteration: The action starts with an incursion, or two timelines colliding with disastrous results. (We’ve previously witnessed an intrusion in the Multiverse of Madness in Doctor Strange.) The survivors live in a post-apocalyptic planet called Battleworld, which is governed by a slew of various versions of Thor known as the Thor Corps. Yes, there are lots of fights amongst popular superheroes.

The X-Men are on their way…soon…

Here’s Everything We Know So Far About Marvel’s Future

probably

So, how about the X-Men? During the Comic-Con event, Feige made no mention of mutants. However, a different Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) appears in Multiverse of Madness. And Wandavision sowed the seeds of a plot. (In the comics, Wanda has been both an X-Men and an Avenger. Because Disney now owns Fox and hence the mutant rights, they changed Wanda’s past to give her abilities from birth, hinting that she is a mutant.)

The multiverse period seems to be the ideal moment to debut the X-Men as a squad of teenage heroes who have been training at Professor X’s school in a parallel dimension. They are somehow drawn into the main MCU narrative. However, Phase 5 seems to be full. As a result, we won’t see any mutations until Phase 6.

Here’s Everything We Know So Far About Marvel’s Future

Phases 4-6 are now referred to be the “Multiverse Saga.”

If Phases 1-3 were the “Infinity Saga,” in which heroes and villains collected numerous Infinity Stones before participating in an Infinity War, Feige has called Phases 4-6 the “Multiverse Saga.” The films and TV series are increasingly grappling with the topic of how Marvel’s numerous parallel realities converge.

In the comics, the Secret Wars narrative ended many realities in the multiverse, except for fan-favorite strands, effectively restarting Marvel comics. Could Marvel also be set for a hard reboot? Perhaps. Or maybe they’re simply searching for a way to include the X-Men (who play an important role in the Secret Wars tale) into the epic.

Here’s Everything We Know So Far About Marvel’s Future

All of the upcoming MCU movies and programs’ release dates and information

Quantumania in Ant-Man and the Wasp (Feb. 17, 2023)

Of Comic-Con, Marvel gave fans a sneak peek at the third Ant-Man flick. Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang (Ant-Man) has written a book on how he helped rescue the planet at the start of the film. His family, which includes his daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton), lover and fellow crimefighter Hope (Evangeline Lilly as The Wasp), and her mother and father (Michelle Pfeiffer and Michael Douglas), are weary of hearing about his exploits. They are then dragged into the Quantum Realm, where they meet Kang the Conqueror and a mystery guy portrayed by none other than Bill Murray.

The Unknown Invasion (Spring 2023)

A Comic-Con exclusive trailer for Secret Invasion was also released. The series is an espionage thriller based on Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury. Fans of Captain Marvel will remember the Skrull extraterrestrial species, who can pass as humans. In this episode, the Skrulls impersonate individuals we know and love, and determining someone’s actual identity is difficult. Fury, who has avoided Earth after the events of Endgame, returns to cope with the Skrull invasion. Emilia Clarke, Cobie Smulders, Olivia Coleman, Kingsley Ben-Adir, and Ben Mendelsohn also appear in the episode.

The third installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise (May 5, 2023)

Director James Gunn grabbed the stage at Comic-Con to release a teaser trailer and confirm that Vol. 3 would be the last installment in the Guardians of the Galaxy story. Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord eventually meets a variation of Zoe Saldana’s Gamora in the clip. But this Gamora still has no idea who Star-Lord is, leaving our hero distraught.

However, the major narrative revolves with Rocket’s origin (voiced by Bradley Cooper). Rocket, once a beautiful newborn raccoon, was experimented on and transformed into the talking, blaster-toting beast he is today. The progress of life forms seems to be at the center of the film: Adam Warlock (Will Poulter), a perfect Sovereign created by Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) to help her destroy the Guardians of the Galaxy at the end of the second Guardians film, and the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji), a new character whose main purpose is to advance lifeforms through experimentation, are the main antagonists.

Echo (Summer 2023)

Echo (Alaqua Cox) from Hawkeye will get her own show. It’s a significant achievement since Echo is the first deaf superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Given Echo’s relationship with mobster Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio), it’s probable that she’ll cross over with Kingpin’s other property, Daredevil. Marvel is yet to clarify whether Hailee Steinfeld, who portrayed Hawkeye’s protégé Kate Bishop in the film, will also feature in the series. Kate is set to be a key member of any future Avengers lineup.

The Fantastic Four (July 28, 2023)

At Comic-Con, Feige didn’t reveal anything about the Captain Marvel sequel. However, we do know that Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani) and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) will feature in the film with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. Nia DaCosta of Candyman is directing.

Season 2 of Loki (Summer 2023)

Apart from Miss Minutes, Marvel did not reveal anything about Loki, Season 2. Kang will undoubtedly serve as a link between this new season of Loki and films like as Quantumania.

Blade (Nov. 3, 2023)

Mahershala Ali confirmed his casting as Blade, the vampire hunter, during the penultimate MCU Comic-Con panel in 2019. Ali has yet to appear in a Marvel film, however his voice was heard in an end-credits sequence for The Eternals. That film appeared to allude to the MCU’s wider, darker underbelly, which would contain figures such as Black Knight (Kit Harington).

Ironheart (Fall 2023)

Riri Williams, who made her breakthrough in Wakanda Forever, will feature in her own Disney+ TV series. If Marvel Studios intends to recreate the Avengers squad, Ironheart seems to be the natural heir to the Iron Man job.

Agatha: Chaos Coven (Winter 2023-2024)

Agatha (Kathryn Hahn), the breakthrough star of Wandavision, will get her own television series. Marvel has been tight-lipped about the facts, but the title hints that spectators will see more of the witchcraft used by the Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange.

Daredevil: Reborn (Spring 2024)

Fans of Daredevil by Charlie Cox, rejoice! The fan-favorite character from his own Netflix series will be transferred over to Disney+ for an all new TV program. The first season will include 18 episodes, an uncommon commitment for Marvel, which usually limits its series to six or eight parts. Feige also stated that the major adversary in Born Again would be Kingpin, who appears in the Netflix Daredevil series and again in the Disney+ program Hawkeye.

The New World Order, starring Captain America (May 3, 2024)

Following the events of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson has been promoted as Captain America. Malcolm Spellman, the show’s creator, is poised to script Sam’s film debut as the renowned superhero. It’s unknown who he’ll be battling, however the Thunderbolts are a solid bet.

Thunderbolts (July 26, 2024)

The Thunderbolts, a villainous squad that has slowly been coming together in the end-credits sequences of different Marvel movies and TV series, will conclude Phase 5.

The Incredible Four (Nov. 8, 2024)

There has been no news on the director or casting for the long-awaited Fantastic Four film. However, given that the Fantastic Four and their enemy Doctor Doom play a significant part in the Secret Wars comics, there’s a fair probability that this film will be the headline franchise of Phase 6 of the MCU.

The Kang Dynasty of the Avengers (May 2, 2025)

Aside from Kang, we have no clue who else may star in this picture. A future Avengers lineup may feature Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and Captain Marvel, as well as newcomers like Yelena taking on her elder sister’s job as the Black Widow, and Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld) taking over for her mentor, Hawkeye.

Secret Wars of the Avengers (Nov. 7, 2025)

Secret Wars has always acted as a reset button in comic books, allowing authors to get rid of characters, stories, and worlds that weren’t functioning. It remains to be seen if Marvel plans to reshuffle the deck at the conclusion of Phase 6, like they did at the end of Phase 3.

Each and Every Show That Inspired the Disney+ Series WandaVision

WandaVision’s frequent allusions to classic television shows are a major part of its humor.

In January of 2021, WandaVision launched Phase 4 of the MCU, officially ushering in a new age of Disney+ shows. Indeed, it was the first time the MCU was seen on television, as it chronicled Wanda Maximoff’s (Elizabeth Olsen) reaction to the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. In the end, WandaVision was a huge critical triumph, garnering a whopping 23 nods at that year’s Primetime Emmys.

WandaVision, as the first television series in the MCU, appropriately paid tribute to the medium of television by drawing inspiration from a wide range of programs throughout its history. WandaVision acknowledged a wide range of television classics by the end of the series, from The Dick Van Dyke Show to Modern Family. All the shows that served as models for WandaVision are listed here.

The Dick Van Dyke Show

The Dick Van Dyke Show, which follows the title man in his antics both at work and at home, is one of the earliest shows mentioned on WandaVision, appearing in the very first episodes. One of WandaVision’s primary inspirations comes from this episode. Matt Shakman, the show’s director, told Den of Geek that he and Van Dyke had lunch together to discuss the show’s production.

I Love Lucy

Featuring Lucille Ball as a New York housewife who dreams of becoming a star, I Love Lucy was a smash hit on television. Clearly, this program, along with The Dick Van Dyke Show, was an influence on the first two episodes of WandaVision. The most blatant example is the fact that couples could not be depicted in bed together during the airing of I Love Lucy. Two separate single beds were displayed instead of a double bed.

Clearly, this program, along with The Dick Van Dyke Show, was an influence on the first two episodes of WandaVision. Couples could not be shown in bed together on television during the time that I Love Lucy was airing. Instead of a double bed, two single beds were displayed.

The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone, the only non-comedic source of inspiration for WandaVision, is another source of the show’s unique style. The structure of the show has a narrator guiding the audience through a series of spooky stories set in a realm named “The Twilight Zone.” Jordan Peele just recreated the series, but he stuck with the same basic idea. Jac Schaeffer, the program’s creator, discussed WandaVision’s impact on the series and its storytelling, highlighting the impact the show had on the development of Wanda’s magic and the resolution of the Hex’s mysteries.

Bewitched

Bewitched, originally shown on ABC in the 1980s, has been remade numerous times throughout the history of film and television, most recently as a box office smash starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. Starring in the show is Elizabeth Montgomery as a witch attempting to lead the life of a typical housewife. WandaVision, in which Scarlet Witch and Vision disguise themselves as normal suburbanites, finds an apt inspiration in these stories.

The Brady Bunch

The Brady Bunch was a popular show from the 1970s about a nuclear family that ended up blending and raising six kids together. The third episode of WandaVision, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, plainly draws inspiration from The Brady Brunch, as the title card makes explicit reference to the show’s title show.

Good Times

A family living in a Chicago public housing complex experienced nothing but good fortune. The actress playing Monica Rambeau on WandaVision, Teyonah Parris, confirmed this was a running gag, and that the show’s effect can be seen even in later episodes. Good Times originated in the 1970s as a spin-off of Maude, which was itself a spin-off of All in the Family.

Full House

In Full House, Bob Saget played a widower father who enlists the support of his brother and closest friend, both of whom were also single parents. The episode in which WandaVision transitioned into the 1980s TV era was inspired by this show. Having grown so much, Billy and Tommy had altered the household dynamic. It’s worth noting that the Olsen sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley, were featured prominently in the ABC show Full House, which served as inspiration for the show’s design.

Malcolm in the Middle

The popular sitcom Malcolm in the Middle from the 2000s focused on the eponymous character, a bright kid from a working-class family who struggled to fit in. In the sixth episode of WandaVision, there were multiple references to Malcolm in the form of dialogue and the opening titles were a direct homage to his. Furthermore, exactly as Malcolm did in his show, Tommy did in WandaVision, breaking the fourth wall.

The Office

WandaVision’s seventh episode included numerous allusions to contemporary sitcoms like The Office, especially in its mockumentary-style format, which featured interviews and glances directly into the camera. While Vision and Darcy are operating the circus truck, Vision occasionally turns his head to stare directly into the lens. When Agnes recognizes the camera, she once again reveals herself to be Agatha Harkness. It’s only fitting that a reference be made to The Office, which has had such an enormous impact on contemporary television.

Modern Family

When it comes to television, Modern Family is up there with the all-time greats. The show centers on the Pritchett family patriarch, Jay, and how his three children and their families interact. In the sixth episode of WandaVision, Wanda addresses the camera directly in a mockumentary style reminiscent of Modern Family. Wanda’s home is also quite similar to the Dunphys’ in terms of color scheme, design, and general vibe.

Who is the Wonder Man of Marvel Comics?
We had been expecting you, Simon Williams.

The following contains spoilers for some of Wonder Man’s comic book history, but will give you an overview of his background.

Marvel Comics readers have been wondering when Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man, would enter the MCU ever since the introduction of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. With the confirmation that Destin Daniel Cretton, the man behind Shang-Chi, will be directing a Wonder Man series for Disney+, some of the answers to that question began to emerge. And in even more thrilling developments, it appears that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will play Simon Williams in the film. If you seen Watchmen on HBO, in which Abdul-Mateen II portrayed Doctor Manhattan, you’ll find this casting even more intriguing. As the villain Black Manta in the Aquaman film series, he is no stranger to the superhero genre. But that’s not why we’re here; we want to speak about Simon Williams and his role in the future of the MCU, and in particular the fates of two of the most beloved star-crossed couples in the MCU canon.

Who is this mysterious Wonder Man, anyway?

Marvel

Wonder Man made his debut to readers on the cover of Avengers #9 in 1964. There was a banner that read, “Marvel Comics proudly introduces… Wonder Man, the newest, most dynamic surprise character from the world-famous House of Ideas,” and the cover art featured the looming heads of Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Wasp, and Giant-Man looking down on their new superpowered foe. Even more so considering Wonder Man wouldn’t make it to the issue’s conclusion, it was a bold claim. Simon Williams was a normal man before he was kidnapped and subjected to “the most potent ionic rays” by Baron Zemo at his hideout in the Amazon Jungle, transforming him into a superhero with superhuman strength and invulnerability. What could possibly motivate such crazy research? The goal was to get Simon (now known as Wonder Man) into the Avengers organization and give him superpowers. In the end, Wonder Man decides to help the Avengers defeat Zemo, after initially agreeing with the plan. He pays the ultimate price for his brave decision. Zemo had poisoned him in secret and, after being deceived, had refused to give Simon the antidote. So long, Wonder Man.

The question is, how did Wonder Man make his way back? And if that was his last appearance, why is he getting a spinoff? In an event that would have lasting effects on Wonder Man and the Avengers, he was soon to play a pivotal role in the development of a legendary Marvel hero.

How Wonder Man are related with Scarlet Witch and Vision?


For four years and 51 issues, fans had to wait before seeing Simon Williams again in the pages of The Avengers. However, the style did not adhere to the norm for comic books. Unfortunately, he was not shown to be still alive or brought back from the dead. This guy wasn’t even a clone. Instead, he is shown to be instrumental in the creation of the synthezoid known as the Vision in the acclaimed story “Even an Android can Cry” by Roy Thomas, John Buscema, George Klein, and Sam Rosen. Something shocking is uncovered as the crew led by Iron Man investigates Vision’s origins and identity. Ultron, the villain, absconded with a valuable item, a “memory cassette” of Wonder Man’s brain. He put it to use in developing the Vision. Yes, in the comics the Vision is an android with a digital replica of Simon Williams’ brain, as opposed to the MCU, where he is formed via the combined efforts of Thor, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner. The odd narrative may have ended there, but Wonder Man had more in store.

By revealing in Avengers #102 that Simon Williams had not been killed but had instead been in a coma since Avengers #9, Marvel Comics planted the seed for his eventual resurrection in 1972. Unfortunately for Simon, it wasn’t the Avengers but Kang, as part of his villain team Legion of the Unliving, that resurrected him in Avengers #131. Wonder Man’s relationship with Vision only grew in importance once he through a few more rebirths and officially joined the Avengers in 1977.

After living together for a while, the duo finally accepted their unorthodox connection and began to view each other as quirky but supportive siblings. Unfortunately, that was short-lived when a corrupt business destroyed Vision’s memory, rendering him emotionless. Simon’s understanding refusal to enable his loving wife Wanda to restore him via brain imprint donation to Vision was understandable. Because he had grown to love Wanda, even if she didn’t realize it for years. The affair was intense, but it ended when Wanda realized she still loved her one true love, Vision, too much to let him go.


What are Wonder Man’s powers?


What a fascinating query! The correct answer has evolved with the times, just like our favorite comic book heroes. We already know that his innate abilities granted him superhuman strength and indestructibility. His initial ionic experiments with Zemo gave him the foundation for his subsequent enhanced talents. Wonder Man appeared to be made entirely of pure energy after reviving from one of his numerous deaths, but the truth is more complicated.

Wonder Man has falsely claimed to be made of Ionic Energy on multiple occasions, however a more accurate description would be that it is embedded throughout his own flesh and bones. As a result of his extraordinary physiology, he can heal himself from wounds, fashion solid objects out of energy, and control magnetic fields. His peculiar abilities can be traced back to his past. Aside from that, Wonder Man possesses a host of classic superhero abilities, including flight, invulnerability, bulletproof skin, the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound, extreme agility, and super reflexes. He also possesses latent powers, such as teleportation and shapeshifting, though he rarely employs them.

Isn’t it true that Wonder Man used to act?


Yep. Simon’s aspirations to become an actor are almost as well-known as his association with Vision. Wonder Man, who in the 1970s was a resident of the Avengers Mansion, left to strike out on his own. Simon left the Avengers #211 after Captain America attempted to downsize the squad to focus on his personal life in Avengers #211. He is now working with good old Hercules in his acting profession. He then tried his hand at acting before transitioning into the world of stunts in Hollywood, where he proved to be nearly unstoppable. Both West Coast Avengers Vol. 1 and his solo series Wonder Man detail that time period in his life. It’s easy to imagine that this will serve as a springboard for his Disney+ series.


What role Wonder Man will play in Marvel?


Simon Williams seems like a logical progression for the MCU after the events of WandaVision and the introduction of the memory-erased White Vision. The question that remains, though, is how the MCU will redefine the antihero in his pilot episode and throughout the franchise. The several possibilities we’ve discussed here show that this is so. Following a much-loved Marvel Cinematic Universe convention, this author speculates that Simon Williams was either an employee or rival of Tony Stark. The latter seems more realistic, given that his past in the ’80s comics was expanded to involve him competing with Stark Industries for cash.

It’s possible that the MCU will introduce the idea that Jarvis and eventually Vision were created using Williams’ coding skills or a physical brain imprint, giving him the crucial connection that the characters need. This would be a great opportunity for the MCU to further cement the brotherly bond between the two characters and bring him full circle back to Tony Stark. The Wonder Man TV show might also take place in the past to introduce audiences to the character and his background before he becomes part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That may be a fun way to introduce audiences to Wonder Man before he officially enters the current MCU, while also incorporating some of the hilarious hijinks from his time in Hollywood. It’s also plausible that this path may leave Williams in a coma, where the MCU’s latest villain can revive him.


It seems likely that Kang will play a role in Simon’s primary introduction to the MCU, given the comics and the time of the Wonder Man series. Including the Legion of the Unliving in the MCU may be a fascinating development. It’s also possible that White Vision is discovered by scientist Kang, who then links the new synthezoid to Simon. However, we believe that Simon will become well-established in the series before being presented to the main MCU, where he will become connected with White Vision and the Avengers after becoming entangled with a revived Scarlet Witch. During the Kang Dynasty comic that inspired the new film’s title, Wanda and Wonder Man actually break up in the comics.

We won’t know until Disney+ launches the much-anticipated MCU series, though.
