"It's not a competition, Tommy."
"It is if you're a winner."
Billy Maximoff and Tommy Maximoff[src]

Eventually, Agatha Harkness puts Tommy and Billy in captivity to force Wanda to reveal how she caused Westview Anomaly. During the Battle of Westview, they are freed by Wanda and help her defeat the S.W.O.R.D. as she battles Agatha Harkness. In the end, Wanda undoes the Westview Anomaly, causing Tommy and Billy to disappear along with it, but then she hears the twins scream for her help as she studies the Darkhold.

Biography

Birth

"Tommy. Just a nice, classic, all-American name."
Wanda Maximoff to Vision[src]

Tommy Maximoff in the crib

After an unnaturally fast pregnancy, Tommy Maximoff was born shortly before his twin brother Billy to their parents, Wanda Maximoff and Vision, in their Westview family home. After being checked over by Dr. Stan Nielson, the new-born twins were put to bed as Wanda and Geraldine watched over them. After reminiscing about her own twin brother, Wanda sung them a Sokovian Lullaby to get them to settle. When Geraldine recognized the name "Pietro", she enquired about Wanda's history with Ultron. Becoming more and more aggravated, Wanda interrogated Geraldine about how she knew Pietro. In response to the adults' confrontation, Maximoff and Billy started to cry until Wanda used her powers to eject Geraldine from Westview. Maximoff and Billy calmed down again once Wanda returned to them in their crib.[1][4]

Growing up in the Suburbs

"Kids. Can't control 'em. No matter how hard you try."
Agnes[src]

Tommy with Wanda Maximoff and Billy

Wanda Maximoff and Vision grew increasingly frustrated as the twins refused to sleep and instead were crying. As Wanda and Vision were attempting to get their newborn children to sleep, Agnes walked into the house. She offered to take care of the babies for them to relieve some of their stress. Eventually, the exhausted parents noticed that the children were quiet, but soon realized they were not in their cribs. They soon realized that the twins’ ages had accelerated and that they had magically grown from newborns to five-year-olds.

Tommy and Billy Maximoff age themselves up

Later, Maximoff and his brother found a stray dog in their street, and brought him to their kitchen, intending to bathe him so their mother would let them keep him. When Wanda discovered the dog, she warned them that taking care of a dog was a huge responsibility. Vision later walked in as well, and so did Agnes, carrying a doghouse for the new family pet, whom they named Sparky. However, when Vision insisted that the twins were not old enough for a dog, Tommy Maximoff and Billy looked at each other mischievously. They then aged themselves once more, this time to ten-year-olds.

Later that day, Billy trained Sparky to do tricks and fed him treats. When Tommy insisted that they go to show their father, Wanda informed them that he was at work. The twins found this confusing as it was a Saturday, so he wasn’t supposed to be working. Wanda told them he needed a distraction. However, Billy believed that he needed a distraction from them. Wanda quickly explained that that wasn’t the case, and said to them that while he and Tommy would argue at time, they would always be brothers. Tommy asked if Wanda had a brother, and Wanda said that she did, but that he was far away from here. The twins and their mother would then be distracted by Sparky running to the door, something attracting his attention. As Wanda went outside to investigate, she opened the door only for Sparky to run away, which caught Maximoff and Tommy’s attention. Billy and Tommy then went outside to find a headed towards their mother.

Tommy Maximoff sees that Sparky died

Shortly afterwards, Wanda, Billy and Tommy were walking around their street looking for Sparky, who had run away earlier. They soon were approached by Agnes, who was holding Sparky in a blanket, and she informed Billy and Tommy that he had died. The twins were shocked and devastated, and attempted to again age themselves, however Wanda stopped them before they could do anything. They begged for Wanda to resurrect Sparky, however Wanda insisted she couldn’t do such a thing. Vision arrived soon after and saw that Sparky had died, and comforted his sons.[2]

First Halloween

The next day, Tommy joined Billy in pranking "Pietro Maximoff", who was lying on the couch. Shortly, Wanda Maximoff walked down the stairs, in her costume, and then greeted Vision who joined them in his costume. "Pietro Maximoff" whisked Tommy away and then returned wearing matching costumes and hairstyles.

Later that evening, Billy and Tommy approached Wanda and showed her their newfound powers. Tommy was ability to move at superhuman speeds, like his uncle. Billy and Tommy then left to get candy at the end of the street, before returning to the main square. Billy then used his powers to halt an excited Tommy, as he used his mind to see Vision in distress outside next to S.W.O.R.D. agents, and immediately rushed to inform Wanda. Maximoff then watched in shock when Wanda used her powers to blast "Pietro" into a haystack.[3]

Abducted by Agatha Harkness

The next morning, Tommy and Billy played video games in the living room, while waiting for their mother to wake up. However, their games began switching throughout different time periods. Confused, Tommy and Billy went up to Wanda's bedroom and asked her what was happening. However, Wanda didn't want to be bothered and told them she wanted to sleep. Billy then told her that he could hear voices in his head, meaning that he could hear the other Westview citizens.

Tommy Maximoff witnesses his mother's breakdown

Tommy and Billy then returned downstairs and waited for Wanda. When she came down, she told them to stay away from "Pietro" and that Vision would return when he was ready. She then began to have a mental breakdown, confusing Tommy and Billy.

Tommy and Billy Maximoff go with Agnes

After Wanda sat down with them, Agnes arrived and walked inside. Seeing that Wanda was stressed out, she then offered to watch Tommy and Billy at her house while Wanda got feeling better. Wanda agreed and Tommy and Billy left with Agnes.

Tommy Maximoff with Agnes, Billy, and Señor Scratchy

After being taken to Agnes' house, Tommy and Billy sat down on the couch in the living room and Billy played with Señor Scratchy, who laid in his lap. When Agnes joined them on the couch, Billy told her that she was silent and that he couldn't hear her thoughts. Agnes then reassured them that their mother would be fine. Agnes then made Billy and Tommy sandwiches and turned on the television for them, before locking them up in her witch lair.

Tommy Maximoff choked by Agatha Harkness

Tommy and Billy were then brought out to the street by Agatha Harkness and restrained by her magic, causing them to choke. They then cried out when they saw Wanda run out and try to rescue them. After Harkness declared Wanda the "Scarlet Witch", Wanda blasted Harkness away, allowing Tommy and Billy to run into their house.[5][6][7]

Tommy's Voice Heard

While reading the Darkhold through astral projection, Wanda Maximoff heard both of her sons' voices crying for help.[8]

Personality

"I'm the cool twin."
"What does that make me?"
"A dorksaurus rex."
―Tommy Maximoff and Billy Maximoff[src]

Tommy Maximoff loves playing pranks and when he gets excited he starts running around wildly until Wanda has to grab him by the arm and give him a stern talking to.

He is also a major fan of “Pietro”, and copies everything his uncle does, including wearing the same Halloween costumes, and is delighted to discover that they have the same superpowers.

Powers

"Chip off the old Maximoff block. You've got super speed!"
"Pietro Maximoff" to Tommy Maximoff[src]

Tommy running at super-speed

  • Superhuman Speed: Like his uncle, Maximoff can run at super sonic speed. He is able to act, move, and perceive in seconds or less, far faster than normal people could even perceive. His power causes him to generate an aura of blue/green, white, and transparent energy currents and mist-like shapes, much like fire or wind, leaving behind a trail of it as he runs. Maximoff used his abilities to swiftly relieve S.W.O.R.D. agents of their weapons. Despite his powers resembling that of his uncle, his abilities do not amplify the force behind his movements like his uncle's did, notably allowing his mother to catch him by the arm without being injured.
  • Superhuman Stamina: After Maximoff found out he had super speed, he chose almost the entire Westview with and without his brother for a long time and showed no signs of fatigue.
  • Age Manipulation: Maximoff and his twin brother Billy have both been shown to have the ability to change their ages at will, each time aging up around 5 years.
