Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is slowly setting up a new magic superhero who is more powerful than Doctor Strange. Also, Wong has impressed many with his ability to protect the world from interdimensional threats. Prior to his debut in Spider-Man No Way Home, people were unsure whether he had what it took to protect the Earth from such forces. However, we are now getting a glimpse at just how capable he really is, not only when compared to Doctor Strange but also others like Loki, Mordo and Enchantress. Given this fact, he should be considered by many within the community as the Avengers’ first and foremost Sorcerer Supreme.
the first magic-user introduced in the MCU was Loki in the original Thor film. In the Disney+ show Loki, the titular character uses a substantial amount of magic such as astral projection and shape-shifting and meets his alternate selves: a young African girl named Sylvie, and another clean-shaven version named Achmo who has taken a different path than Cho. Other prominent MCU magic users include Karl Mordo and Wanda Maximoff. Mordo is a sorcerer originally trained at Kamar-Taj who questions the dangerous consequences of magical power use. Wanda, on the other hand, is entirely untrained, and in a heartbreaking fit of grief, she invents her own reality and enslaves her loved ones’ minds with it*.
So which character are we talking about in MCU Phase 4? Yet another magician is on the rise within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Marvel Comics, Billy Kaplan, aka Wiccan, is a reality-warping magic-user of immeasurable might. Fans were introduced to Billy in the Disney+ series WandaVision as one of Wanda Maximoff’s superpowered twin sons. While his powers are quaint and substantially under-developed in the show.
Billy is historically one of the most powerful magicians in the Marvel universe and can warp multiverse realities with a thought. His powers are said to rival those of Scarlet Witch and her powers have been said to exceed even that of the Sorcerer Supreme himself – who happenstance happens to be Dr. Strange!
