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

Thomas "Tommy" Maximoff was the son of Wanda Maximoff and Vision, and the twin brother of Billy Maximoff.

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]

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]

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.

Trivia

  • In the comics, Tommy and his twin Billy were magical constructs created subconsciously by Wanda Maximoff using pieces of Mephisto's soul. Tommy eventually ceased to exist, only to be reincarnated years later in Tommy Shepherd, also known as Speed for his powers and resemblance to Quicksilver. He is also a member of the Young Avengers.
  • Tommy was named by his mother Wanda Maximoff, who chose the name because it was a classic all-American name.
  • Tommy usually wears green while his brother wears red, a reference to their comics reincarnations' costumes.
