"I get anxiety. I don't think I'm good enough. I don't like myself, even though I know — rationally, I know — …doesn't matter. I have bad days. Bad thoughts. And sometimes… sometimes, yeah. They're hard to fight. But I don't let them win every day. And I'm damn sure not going to let you win today."


New to the superhero scene, Billy Kaplan enjoyed a brief reputation as the Asgardian, one of a slew of kid superheroes who claimed to wield the power of electricity to great effect. More recently, Billy's made a comeback as the Wondrous Wiccan (note: 'wondrous' is not part of his superhero name), eager to prove himself as a superhero — but with strange and unanswered questions revolving around the nature and origin of his powers.

As Billy, he's mainly known as a tremendous nerd. Of all sorts of varieties. But especially the superhero kind. He's written so much friendfiction. So. Much.


Billy Kaplan WAS born as a normal kid. Eldest son of Jeff and Rebecca Kaplan, Billy was one of three sons raised under the roof of a Reform Judaism household. Normal life. Normal family. Bullied for being gay, bullied for being 'different,' but otherwise normal. One minor snag:

The Scarlet Witch.

In another world, another life, another time, Wanda Maximoff had twins through the use of her immense power. Circumstances robbed her of these children, and when she discovered this, the fractious grief of a woman who molded reality like putty backfired and reverborated across universal boundaries. Reality was rewritten, the history of things changed for all Billy Kaplans across space and time. Billy Kaplan was no longer the normal child of a Jewish household. Now, he was the retroreincarnated son of the Scarlet Witch herself, bestowed with the same, dangerous gift to make his whim reality as his spiritual mother. And nothing would be the same.

For the most part, things continued as normal. Billy developed a perfectly healthy obsession with superheroes and superhero culture, became a true nerd's nerd — and found himself belittled and harassed because of his sexual orientation, just as before. Bullied for the way he was. Billy found inspiration in his heroes, however, and a chance meeting with one in the flesh would eventually inspire in him the courage to stand up to his tormentors.

And when the sudden and unexpected activation of his powers nearly killed his bully, John Kesler, that was when everything changed.

With the discovery of his powers, Billy began to practice their use extensively. It was like a dream come true for the young man; finally, his chance to become a superhero, like all his idols. He trained and trained and one day, through a series of strange events, became part of a short-lived team of younger superheroes. It was through this he was (re)united with his (spiritually retroreincarnated) twin brother, Tommy Shepherd, though he has yet to learn the strange truth behind their connection. After a short stint as the would-be hero known as the Asgardian, though, Billy decided to rebrand himself as Wiccan — and begin his life as a superhero in earnest.

Avengers, here we come!!!

Character Details

Billy Kaplan is a good kid. Sweet, sensitive, truly kind and caring. Events in his life has lended him towards a bit of a cynical, perhaps realistic outlook — has caused him to second guess many things, including (especially) himself — and has imbued him with a wellspring of teenaged sarcasm, but he is passionate and earnest and, sometimes to his misfortune, wears his heart on his sleeve. Despite being fairly level-headed and rational most of the time, Billy is truly passionate, and this fact can lead him to being a bit tempestuous, especially when it comes to the people he cares about — just like his mother before him. His self-reflection can also sometimes cause him to overlook the feelings of others, however unintentionally, his existential worries grow increasingly by the day, and he has a tendency to over-idealize his heroes who have meant so much to him and grow despondant when they turn out to not live up to his impossible standards, but Billy truly does mean well. He just has a few problems.
