This included Allison, Charlie Satterthwaite (New Brompton), William Kirby (Swindon Town) and Herbert Lyon (Reading). Allison soon became a key figure at West Ham. The West Ham defence included Allison, George Kitchen, Frank Piercy, David Gardner, Len Jarvis and Bill Wildman. During the 1906-07 season the team only conceded 41 goals in 38 games. For five years Allison hardly missed a game: 32 (1903-04), 31 (1904-05), 30 (1905-06), 38 (1906-07) and 29 (1907-08). Tommy Allison retired after playing his last game on 10th April, 1909.

Tommy was in the middle of a cross-examination in court, when he asked the judge for a continuance because he thought he was having a heart attack. The judge called for an ambulance.

Tommy was taken to the emergency room of Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. However, he had not suffered a heart attack - his EKG, cardiac enzymes and cardiac catheterization were all normal. Dr. Foreman brought the case to Dr. House, but Dr. House dismissed it as an anxiety attack. Dr. Foreman dismissed this suggestion as the patient’s wife had been interviewed and there was nothing out of the ordinary in Tommy’s life either at work or at home and he had been fine. To rule out anxiety, Dr. Foreman ordered treatment with alprazolam and lied to the patient he had a minor respiratory infection that was easily curable in order not to increase his anxiety. The patient did not improve even though alprazolam treats anxiety. Dr. House was suitably intrigued enough to take the case.

Dr. House convened his team. Dr. Park suggested shingles, which could cause chest pain before a rash, but Dr. House pointed out the pain would be restricted to one dermatome. Dr. Taub suggested an asthma induced pneumothorax, but the patient had no medical history of asthma. Dr. Adams suggested chlorine gas poisoning, and Dr. House thought a toxin was likely, so he ordered that the patient’s urine by alkalinized, an environmental scan of the home and to proceed on the assumption that the wife had tried to poison him and ask her what she used.

Dr. Taub asked the wife about who might want to poison her husband, but she said that Tommy was well respected in his office and even by the people he prosecutes. She also told him that poisoning him would be difficult as he only eats and drinks things he brings from home. Dr. Taub wondered why Tommy was so careful, and his wife told him that Tommy has worked in the health department. Dr. Chase talked to the patient, but Tommy told him that due to his kids, they don’t keep poisons at home. Dr. Chase asked about the possibility of deliberate poisoning, but Tommy dismissed the idea that his wife would try to kill him. His wife assured Dr. Taub as well.

Dr. Adam and Dr. Park did the environmental scan. They found no fuel, pesticides, fertilizer, or anything else that could be poisonous. However, as they went to leave, Dr. Park noticed one of the rooms was smaller than it should be. She searched and found a secret room that was full of guns and ammunition.

They confronted the patient, who admitted to adding the gun room during a recent renovation. The team reported to Dr. House, who had already surmised the patient was afraid the government was going to fail. Dr. Chase suggested that the paranoia was a symptom, perhaps of cocaine abuse. However, Dr. Park dismissed the idea that it was a symptom. Dr. Adams thought the paranoia might indicate Fahr’s syndrome. Dr. Park noted there were no hallucinations, but Dr. Adams thought they may have just missed them and suggested a mental status examination and a CT scan of the basal ganglia. However, Dr. Park thought it was more likely to be atrial fibrillation brought on by hyperthyroidism or sleep apnea. Dr. House ordered the CT scan and a hair sample to check for cocaine use. He also ordered a test of TSH levels and a sleep study.

The patient’s hair sample was clear for cocaine, and there were no calcifications in the basal ganglia. Dr. Park started the sleep study. However, she noticed a bleeding sore on his leg. Tommy didn’t feel any pain or sensation at the site.

Overnight, the patient also developed a fever. Dr. Adams thought it might be tuberculosis. However, there was no sign of atelectasis or chest infiltrates on the x-ray. Dr. Taub suggested systemic sclerosis, but Dr. Park pointed out that it takes longer than a few days to develop skin ulcers after the first symptoms appear. Dr. Adams pointed out his paranoia started over a year ago, but Dr. Park once again didn’t think the paranoia was a symptom. Dr. Taub wanted to biopsy the skin lesion and start the patient on enoxaparin immediately, but Dr. Park thought it would be better to wait for the biopsy results before starting treatment. Dr. House ordered the biopsy and the treatment.

However, soon after, Tommy started to get very aggressive, getting out of bed and throwing a chair through the glass panel of his room. Dr. Taub, Dr. Chase and an orderly managed to subdue him. Tommy was put in restraints and it was determined he was hallucinating about being attacked by bears, which once again pointed to paranoia as a symptom. Dr. Park thought this paranoia was new and pointed to tularemia, but Dr. Adams thought the paranoia was consistent with his past behavior and pointed to GAD autoimmune disease. However, Dr. Chase thought the consistently normal blood tests pointed to a mental illness like schizophrenia. However, Dr. Park noted that didn’t explain the fever or skin ulcer. Dr. Chase suggested the patient might have tried to dig things out of his skin, causing the ulcers and an infection. However, Dr. Park thought an infection was far more likely and suggested broad-spectrum antibiotics, but Dr. Adams noted those would be fatal in a patient with GAD autoimmunity. Dr. House ordered steroids and intravenous immunoglobulin for GAD.

Tommy’s fever got worse. Dr. House came to the conclusion that they had, perhaps, started treatment too late and ordered the dose of steroids increased. Dr. Park objected saying more steroids would be fatal if it were an infection, but Dr. House noted with the neurological symptoms getting worse so fast, it was unlikely antibiotics would help even if it was an infection. Dr. House agreed, but noted broad-spectrum would be useless. He ordered DNA assays for sporotrichosis, meningococcemia and anything else they could think of. He ordered the steroids discontinued.

Dr. Park and Dr. Adams started arguing about the diagnosis. Dr. Park noted GAD would cause seizures, and Dr. Adams countered an infection would show up in the blood or central nervous system.

The patient went into respiratory arrest. He had stridor, but no obstructions. It appeared to be anaphylaxis. Dr. Chase prepared for an emergency tracheotomy. However, the obstruction was blocking Tommy’s entire trachea. Dr. Taub ordered more racemic epinephrine. They restored the patient’s breathing and realized the cause was tracheal edema. Since they weren’t treating him, it had to be a symptom. However, it ruled out both GAD and a systemic infection. It also appeared to rule out an allergy because the patient couldn’t get worse three days after he was admitted. Dr. House turned back to toxins, but the doctors were at a loss as to who could do it as the wife left due to a fight over the guns in the house. Dr. Park suggested squamous cell carcinoma, with the hallucinations being the result of paraneoplastic syndrome. Dr. House ordered a biopsy.

However, Dr. House finally realized the tracheal blockage wasn’t edema, but a pseudomembrane. He wasn’t clinically paranoid, but his symptoms were largely caused by a toxin. He removed the patient’s tracheal tube to examine his throat and found the pseudo membranes indicative of diphtheria, which explained all the symptoms. He ordered antitoxin from the CDC. The patient was treated and was expected to make a full recovery.


First footage of 'Pam and Tommy' and 'The Wonder Years' reboot revealed

The internet was already all-in on Hulu's upcoming Pam and Tommy when the first images of Sebastian Stan and Lily James — who play ྖs icons Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson, respectively — went viral. So it's only natural that the streaming service decided to double down on the anticipation by dropping an early teaser for the still-shooting miniseries during the Walt Disney Company's annual upfront presentation to advertisers and the press.

The roughly minute-long clip, which hadn't been released online as of press time, reveals new footage of James and Stan in character, including shots of the Downton Abbey star wearing Anderson's iconic Baywatch swimsuit. The trailer also teased the plot and overall tone of the series, which was helmed by I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie.

Like that acclaimed 2017 retelling of the Tonya Harding scandal, which won an Oscar nomination for Margot Robbie and an actual Oscar for Allison Janney, Pam and Tommy puts a comic spin on a piece of sordid ྖs history. The trailer is largely centered around Rand Gauthier (played by Seth Rogen), the disgruntled electrician who stole and then leaked the notorious sex tape that the couple filmed during their whirlwind courtship and marriage. Rogen previously modeled his era-appropriate outfit (and beardless face) on Instagram and earned praise for his own transformation.

Former Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman appears opposite Rogen as Gauthier's partner in crime, Uncle Miltie, and the trailer includes the scene where the bumbling duo recognize the value of what they've stolen. "It's like we're seeing something we're not supposed to be seeing," muses Rogen. "Which is kind of what makes it so f***ing hot."

In real life, of course, the release of the tape was no laughing matter for Anderson. Filmmaker David Hogan, who directed her cult 1996 comic book movie Barb Wire, recently told Yahoo Entertainment that she was furious about the invasion of privacy and the cast and crew knew not to discuss the tape in her presence. "Of course, it was all the talk on the set," he added, recalling an incident where he walked in on some of the film's producers watching the tape in the production office.

The Pam and Tommy trailer suggests that Anderson and Lee will ultimately emerge as the heroes of this ribald, R-rated story, even as the series pokes fun at their larger-than-life pop culture image. But that might not be enough to satisfy early critics like Anderson's close friend, Courtney Love, who took to Facebook to slam the series in a since-deleted post. "I find this so f***ing outrageous," the singer wrote. "My heart goes out to Pammy. Further causing her complex trauma. Shame on Lily James, whoever the f*** she is."

Disney's other high-profile trailer reveal stayed firmly within the PG-realm, with ABC unveiling an extended first look at the long-awaited reboot of the beloved 1980s series The Wonder Years. The original revisited the 1960s through the eyes of Fred Savage's Kevin Arnold, with Daniel Stern providing the voice of his grown-up self.

The new version takes place in the same era, but follows the experiences of a Black family in Montgomery, Ala., when the American South was still roiled by race-related violence. In fact, the first episode — which was directed by Savage, who is also an executive producer — pointedly incorporates a news report announcing the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

Video: Danica McKeller on 'Wonder Years' reboot featuring Black family

That report is seen by the show's main character, Dean Williams (played by Elisha “EJ” Williams), a precocious 12-year-old who considers himself to be "the Great Uniter" — bringing together white and Black kids at his recently integrated school. The trailer also introduces the members of his extended family: his cool dad, Bill (Dulé Hill), super-smart mom Lillian (Saycon Sengbloh) and popular older sister, Kim (Laura Kariuki).

Meanwhile, Don Cheadle provides the musings of the adult Dean, reflecting on those "wonder years" decades later. "It's weird to grow up in a time when your mom and dad have to give you the 'police talk,' or when a presidential election creates a racial divide," the Iron Man star remarks — an observation that speaks volumes about the kinds of timely connections the new show will draw between the past and the present.

But some things never change: Joe Cocker's classic version of "With a Little Help From My Friends" still serves as the anthem of The Wonder Years. Twitter was particularly pleased that that bit of pop culture history remained intact.

Early Life

A Love for Sitcoms

Wanda Maximoff was born in 1989 in Sokovia to Oleg and Iryna Maximoff along with her twin brother, Pietro. Η] Unknown to any of them, Maximoff was born with the latent magical ability to harness Chaos Magic, making her the legendary Scarlet Witch. Her power was too weak, however, and was doomed only to diminish over time. Growing up, her family would watch American by-products such as television series and sitcoms to practice their English. Maximoff became incredibly fond of the sitcoms, in particular, The Dick Van Dyke Show, enjoying and desiring the idyllic lives they depicted. Ώ]

Novi Grad Bombings

Maximoff watching sitcoms with her family

At the age of 10, during the violent bombings in Sokovia, when her father got home, Maximoff chose for her family to watch The Dick Van Dyke Show for TV night, as it was her favorite. Suddenly, a mortar shell hit their apartment building, instantly killing Maximoff's parents.

The Maximoff twins survive the bombing

Trapped inside the crumbling building, Pietro Maximoff moved himself and his sister under the bed, where they witnessed a second shell land three feet in front of them. Maximoff noticed the TV still playing, so she used it to comfort herself. Ώ] For the next two days, the twins stared at the shell, reading the name Stark Industries on it, fearing it would detonate at any moment, but it did not, and they were rescued. Α] Maximoff and Pietro were subsequently admitted into a Sokovian orphanage. While there, they lived and interacted with a child who had a skin condition, which was particularly memorable for Maximoff. ⎖]

Protesting Against Heroes

Wanda and Pietro Maximoff attend a protest

This horrifically traumatic experience gave the twins a deep enmity towards Tony Stark, and later, the Avengers, whom they aimed to take down. The Maximoffs dedicated much of their lives to this goal, including organizing protests against both Stark Industries and the Avengers, whom they blamed for their parents' deaths. Their constant political activity put Wanda and Pietro on S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA's radar as potential threats and allies, respectively. Α]

Avengers Conflict

Joining HYDRA

Maximoff displaying her powers

By the time the twins reached adulthood, Sokovia had become a war zone, with foreign forces led by the United States of America invading their streets frequently. Maximoff and her brother took part in various riots to drive the Americans out of their home. What the twins did not realize was that the riots were orchestrated by HYDRA, who had taken up residence in the country and were using its upheavals to cover up their experiments. During one such riot, the Maximoffs were among the protesters approached by List, who offered them a way to achieve the power needed to end war in Sokovia.

Maximoff was initially skeptical, but ultimately convinced by Pietro to agree to the experiments to gain new powers. Along with other volunteers from the town, Maximoff and Pietro underwent a series of tests conducted by List and Wolfgang von Strucker, where they were exposed to energy from the Scepter, which had fatal effects on all the other volunteers. The Maximoff twins, however, survived and experienced exceedingly different side-effects. Ώ] The power of the scepter then unlocked latent supernatural powers within the pair Pietro achieved superhuman speed, while Maximoff attained a number of psionic powers. Unknown to her at the time, this event unlocked and amplified the latent Chaos Magic within her, fulfilling the myth of the Scarlet Witch. ⎙] ΐ]

Attack on the Research Base

The Maximoffs preparing to fight the Avengers

The Avengers arrived in Sokovia and raided HYDRA Research Base, stealing the Scepter and arresting Wolfgang von Strucker. In the confusion, Maximoff twins escaped from their holding cells and, though inexperienced, were able to use their powers to evade the Avengers and escape.

While Pietro went outside and engaged Hawkeye, Maximoff stayed inside and defended Strucker. When Strucker became cornered by Captain America, he attempted to surrender. However, Maximoff snuck up behind Rogers and used her powers to throw him down the stairs. In the confusion, Maximoff escaped through a doorway. Rogers reported to the rest of the Avengers of the second enhanced individual on HYDRA's side before knocking out Strucker and taking him into custody.

Maximoff uses her powers against Tony Stark

Maximoff used her powers to briefly distract Tony Stark, tricking him into believing that a dead Leviathan specimen that Strucker had been studying was still alive, and showing him a dark vision where the Avengers were dead and the Chitauri invaded Earth from a Wormhole. Upon seeing Stark's true fear of leading humanity down the path to global destruction, Maximoff allowed Stark and the Avengers to make off with the Scepter, despite Pietro's protests, with hopes that Stark's tampering with the alien weapon would lead to his own self-destruction. Α]

Joining Ultron

The Maximoffs hide out in Sokovia

With the HYDRA Research Base and Wolfgang von Strucker captured, the Maximoffs returned to Sokovia, where Pietro provided for them by becoming a thief. One night, Maximoff found Pietro handing out items he had stolen, including an expensive Parisian dress to Zrinka. She mocked her brother's attempts to flirt with all the women in Sokovia and warned him he would get shot if he kept stealing. As Pietro began to question Maximoff's decision to let Tony Stark go free, Costel approached the pair and told them that "Iron Man" was waiting in a nearby church for them. ⎚]

The twins went to the church and found a mysterious man waiting for them wearing a red cloak who spoke about how much he enjoyed the church. When Maximoff grew wary and questioned why she could not read his mind, the man revealed himself to be Ultron, an A.I. accidentally created by Tony Stark who subsequently went rogue and began a murderous vendetta against the Avengers. Ultron then led the Maximoffs from the church and back to the HYDRA Research Base.

Ultron revealed that he had taken over the base and was using it to create an army of Ultron Sentries. They discussed the reasons for killing the Avengers and Pietro told Ultron how they had lost their parents due to a Stark Industries missile Maximoff noted that she and Pietro nearly died at Stark's hand as well. Although they were initially unsure, Ultron assured the twins that they would use their powers to kill the Avengers, noting that while he and Pietro could hurt them, Maximoff would be able to tear them apart from the inside. Α]

Battle at the Salvage Yard

Maximoff threatening Ulysses Klaue's mind

Agreeing to the alliance, Maximoff twins accompanied Ultron in acquiring Ulysses Klaue's supply of vibranium. The Maximoffs entered the Salvage Yard first and shut off the lights before disarming Klaue and confronting him. Klaue remained unimpressed by the Maximoffs. Having heard of them already, he noted that he was saddened to hear of Wolfgang von Strucker's death then mocked the pair for their reaction to learning of their mentor's murder.

Maximoff subdues Ulysses Klaue's henchman

Eventually, Klaue told the pair that he would have no respect for them if Maximoff used her powers to make him see what he feared, a cuttlefish, and he wished to speak to the man in charge. In response Ultron threw Klaue through a window and introduced himself. Ultron forced Klaue to sell him his stockpile of vibranium and paid him billions of dollars. However, when Klaue offended Ultron, the robot responded by cutting off Klaue's arm and kicking him down some stairs while Maximoff used her powers to keep Klaue's men from defending themselves.

Maximoff and Ultron fighting all the Avengers

When the Avengers arrived in an attempt to stop them, Ultron and the Maximoffs mocked their efforts, ignoring Captain America's attempts to convince the Maximoffs that they still had a chance to walk away. Ultron responded by attacking the team and the Maximoffs joined the fight. During the chaos of the battle, Maximoff managed to knock Captain America back with her powers and began "hexing" the minds of Thor, Black Widow, and Captain America. She attempted to enthrall Hawkeye but was subdued when he pushed a taser arrow onto her forehead.

Maximoff catches sight of Bruce Banner

Pietro saved her in the nick of time, throwing Hawkeye through a window and taking her outside Klaue's base to recover. Although she suffered great pain from the taser arrow, Maximoff wished to complete their plan. She caught sight of Bruce Banner and managed to "hex" him as well, forcing him to transform into the Hulk and go on a rampage through Johannesburg, resulting in Iron Man being forced to battle his friend. In the confusion, the twins managed to escape with Ultron and the vibranium, and made their way to Seoul. Α]

Ultron's Intentions Revealed

Maximoff learns of Ultron's true intentions

When the trio arrived in Seoul, Ultron used the Scepter to indoctrinate Helen Cho, forcing her to use the vibranium in synchrony with the Regeneration Cradle to build a new, more powerful body for Ultron. As Ultron's consciousness was being uploaded into the body, Maximoff curiously took the opportunity to explore Ultron's mind and was horrified to learn of Ultron's true plans, which involved the genocide of humanity in its entirety. Maximoff freed Cho from the mind control to halt the creation of Ultron's body. With Pietro, she then abandoned Ultron and fled the facility, much to the automaton's rage. Α]

Battle of Seoul

The Maximoffs decide to assist the Avengers

The twins attempted to escape Seoul, but as they made their way through the city, they spotted a news report showing that the Avengers were battling Ultron and his army in the middle of the city, endangering thousands of lives. Refusing to allow the people of Seoul to be put in danger, the Maximoffs decided to join the Avengers.

They eventually caught up and assisted Captain America in fighting off Ultron on a moving passenger train. Maximoff used her powers to put a defensive barrier between Ultron and Rogers by twisting the metal bars inside the train while Pietro knocked him down. Upon seeing that he was betrayed and outnumbered by his former teammates, Ultron responded by destroying the controls of the train before flying out the side door and escaping, leaving the Maximoffs and Rogers on the train going full speed as it headed to the end of the tracks.

Maximoff using her abilities to stop the train

With the train now completely out of control and heading to the middle of the city, Rogers ordered Maximoff to stop it, while Pietro moved any civilians out of its path. Mustering up all of her power and strength, Maximoff lifted the train's wheels off the ground and applied the breaks as hard as she could. Although the train was slowing down, it still crashed through buildings. Pietro was able to save the lives of the people in the way until the train was finally stopped in its tracks.

With the train now stopped, Maximoff ran to her brother's aid, as he could barely stand after running so fast for so long. When Rogers revealed that the Regeneration Cradle and Ultron's would-be body had been sent to Tony Stark for analysis, Maximoff was disturbed, aware that Stark would attempt to utilize the body rather than destroy it in order to correct his own folly. Although Rogers was reluctant to accept this as a possibility, noting that Stark was not crazy, Maximoff compared Stark and Ultron and made key comparisons with their mindsets. Α]

Changing Sides

The Birth of Vision

Maximoff prepares to attack Tony Stark

The Maximoff twins then accompanied Captain America back to the Avengers Tower and found Maximoff's fear to be accurate Tony Stark and Bruce Banner were trying to upload the consciousness of J.A.R.V.I.S. into the body. After a brief scuffle, Maximoff was held back by Banner but she managed to escape his hold, only to witness Thor bringing the body to life.

She watched in fear as the being initially attacked Thor before looking over New York City and calming down. The being introduced himself to them, calling itself Vision. The Maximoffs and the Avengers continued to be wary of Vision, with Maximoff noting that she had seen the destruction of the world in its head. Eventually, Vision convinced the team that he was on their side and proved his worthiness by picking up Mjølnir and handing it to Thor.

She and Pietro then agreed to join the Avengers stopping Ultron and saving Sokovia, where he would be enacting his final plan. The Maximoffs took new uniforms and joined the Avengers on the Quinjet as Rogers gave a speech where he informed the team that their priority was getting the innocent people of Sokovia out of harm's way before Ultron could destroy their homes and lives. Wishing to save the lives of her friends from her home city, Maximoff sided with her former enemies, although she was unsure of trusting the Avengers in the long term. Α]

Battle of Sokovia

Maximoff and Quicksilver arriving in Sokovia

Upon arriving in Sokovia, Maximoff played a significant part in evacuating civilians from Novi Grad, using her powers of mind control on dozens of innocents and leading them safely from the war zone. When the army of Ultron Sentries began their attack, Maximoff took up a defensive position on a bridge, shielding innocent civilians from enemy fire with her powers as they ran to safety, however, the firepower of the Sentries proved too strong and knocked her back.

Eventually, Ultron, using a device forged from the remaining vibranium samples, forced a large part of the city of Novi Grad to levitate so that once it reached a certain height, it would cause an extinction level event once it made an impact with the Earth. As Ultron gave a speech to the people of Sokovia while flying outside the city, Wanda and the rest of the Avengers could only look on in horror as Ultron unleashed his seemingly unstoppable plan. Α]

Rescued by Hawkeye

Maximoff listens to Hawkeye's speech

This, along with the carnage that was falling upon the city, overwhelmed Maximoff. Hawkeye managed to lead her into a vacant building for safety from the Ultron Sentries. Maximoff struggled with terror and guilt over causing such a disaster in her own home, perceiving it as being her fault and beginning to lose morale.

Maximoff is inspired by Hawkeye's words

However, Hawkeye brushed aside Maximoff's guilt for the time being and simply responded that she needed to make a choice: either stay hidden and wait for her brother to take her somewhere safe or continue the battle. Hawkeye assured Maximoff that if she continued to fight to the end with them, then her past would not matter because she would become an Avenger. As Hawkeye then went back outside to battle Ultron, Maximoff was left to think over what he told her. Α]

Becoming an Avenger

Maximoff fights back against Ultron

Her confidence restored by Hawkeye's words, Maximoff stepped outside and saved the overwhelmed Hawkeye from a small squad of Ultron Sentries, using her powers to pull them apart and throw them across Novi Grad.

Once the Sentries were destroyed, the pair reported to Captain America and prepared for their next mission. As they began to walk through the city, Quicksilver ran in and picked up his sister, running across the city with her while leaving Barton to jog behind.

The Maximoffs fight against Ultron's army

Maximoff and Quicksilver ran into the middle of the city and teamed up to assist in the battle by protecting civilians still trapped in the city, running ahead of Sokovian Police Department officers who were pinned down by the Ultron Sentries. While Maximoff fired energy blasts at the robots, Quicksilver ran into the battle but was accidentally grazed in the arm by a police officer despite the chief calling for the police to stop firing. Α]

Maximoff discusses the plan

Rogers informed the Avengers that they are leading the civilians to the town hall. He met up with Maximoff and Black Widow, who asked why Maximoff was wearing her jacket. Captain America told her that Maximoff was with them now. Hawkeye then caught up with them and warned that if they got any higher, people would start dropping. Captain America ordered Maximoff to get the civilians out from hiding, and for Hawkeye to watch her back. ⎚]

Maximoff evacuates the people of Sokovia

Soon after, a Helicarrier commanded by Nick Fury and Maria Hill came to the Avengers' aide, sending out Lifeboats to evacuate the civilians still trapped at the city. Once the transports landed, Maximoff assisted in escorting civilians to the Lifeboats that ferried them aboard the flying aircraft carrier, keeping the women and children back until it was safe and ushering them on board alongside Hawkeye. Meanwhile, Fury sent War Machine to protect the Lifeboats from any Sentries attacking them mid-air. Α]

Protecting the Key

Maximoff, Quicksilver and the rest of the Avengers regrouped at the church in the center of Novi Grad where Ultron had set up the key to the device that would cause the city to drop. Captain America explained that Ultron must not be allowed to activate the key as it would destroy the city and the planet. As they stood around the key, Ultron hovered outside the church. When Thor challenged him, Ultron showed off his army of hundreds of Ultron Sentries.

When Ultron unleashed his army upon them, Maximoff and the Avengers put all their might into battling the seemingly endless horde of Ultron Sentries, with Maximoff using her gifts to pull them out of the air and rip them apart from the inside. Eventually the team managed to wipe out the majority of Ultron's drones and Ultron himself was almost destroyed by the combined might of Vision, Thor, Iron Man, and the Hulk, who destroyed his armor and sent him across the city.

Maximoff agrees to protect the key

With the battle almost won, Captain America ordered the team to evacuate the city before Iron Man and Thor destroyed the key and Novi Grad itself. As the key needed to be guarded against Ultron in the meantime, Maximoff volunteered to stay behind, telling Hawkeye that it was her job to protect it. The team agreed but Quicksilver insisted that he would not leave her behind, but she ordered him to continue getting the people to the boats and only come back for her at the last minute, insisting she could handle the responsibility. Α]

Quicksilver's Sacrifice

While keeping the Ultron Sentries away from the key, Maximoff sensed a terrible thing, as her brother attempted to save Hawkeye and a young boy from Ultron, who had obtained a Quinjet, he was shot and killed by the robot. Sensing this, Maximoff dropped to her knees and cried out in pure anguish, obliterating the sentries she had been fighting with a single massive blast of energy.

Maximoff gets her revenge on Ultron

Overcome with rage and emotion, Maximoff left her post to avenge her brother, tracking down Ultron, who had been ripped out of the Quinjet by the Hulk and had crash-landed inside a bus. Maximoff knelt beside her former ally, who pleaded with her to escape before she was killed in the approaching explosion, Maximoff told the robot that she had already died due to heartbreak and to demonstrate this, she telekinetically ripped his core processor from his body.

Her action inadvertently allowed a single Ultron drone to activate the device, sending Novi Grad plummeting towards Earth with her still trapped inside. Maximoff accepted her fate as she plummeted towards the ground, being the only person left in the city however, she was rescued at the last minute by Vision. Seconds after their escape, Iron Man and Thor averted the cataclysm by combining their abilities to vaporize the city, saving billions of lives. Α]

New Avengers

Moving to the United States

The ordeal with Ultron having finally passed, Maximoff was recruited into the Avengers' roster along with James Rhodes, Vision and Sam Wilson as a permanent member of the team. Maximoff was also provided with a new uniform to wear as an Avenger.

Maximoff officially joins the Avengers

They arrived at the New Avengers Facility and began their training under the leadership of Captain America and Black Widow. Α] HYDRA collected many of the parts of the destroyed Ultron Sentries and took them to an undisclosed location in Eastern Europe, where they used the parts to create a giant robot called Ultimo. HYDRA then used the Ultimo to attack a small village. Maximoff joined the Avengers in an attack on the giant robot and together they managed to destroy Ultimo. ⎛]

Bonding with Vision

Maximoff watching sitcoms to comfort her

Still grieving the loss of her brother, Maximoff, who was all alone in a new place, would watch sitcoms in her bedroom to comfort herself. When she sensed Vision on the other side of the wall, he entered, apologizing for intruding, but she asked him to sit next to her and watch TV.

Maximoff and Vision starting to fall in love

As they watched the TV, Vision expressed a desire to learn about Maximoff's sadness, if that would bring her comfort, but she didn't think it would, only wanting her brother back. However, Maximoff decided to open up to Vision, explaining the overwhelming sorrow she was feeling, but he believed that it wouldn't always be that way, and that he saw it as love persevering, despite his lack of experiencing loss, noting he has never had a loved one. This cheered Maximoff up, and caused her to develop strong feelings for Vision, as they continued to watch TV, enjoying it together. Ώ]

Lagos Catastrophe

Maximoff undercover at a café

Approximately a year after the Ultron Offensive, Maximoff joined her fellow Avengers in tracking down Crossbones and his mercenaries to Lagos, Nigeria. Maximoff positioned herself at a café, where she described the police station in the area, trying to uncover Crossbones' plan as part of her training from Black Widow, who was teaching her spy techniques.

Maximoff battles all Crossbones' soldiers

They soon learned that Crossbones was planning to instead attack the Institute for Infectious Diseases and steal a biochemical weapon. Captain America then ordered them to make their way to the IFID to stop the attack. The Avengers immediately rushed towards the IFID, with Captain America arriving first on the scene, followed by Falcon and Maximoff, and took out the outside mercenaries. Maximoff lifted Captain America onto the third floor to subdue Crossbones and used her powers to vent the anaesthetic gas out into the open air.

Maximoff clears the gas from the building

Falcon and Black Widow managed to neutralize the mercenaries and secure the biochemical weapon that Crossbones had obtained while they tried to escape through a busy marketplace. Captain America and Crossbones fought intensely before Captain America managed to disarm and subdue Crossbones. Crossbones taunted Captain America and claimed that the Winter Soldier had hired him to steal the biochemical weapon, once again under HYDRA's mind control.

Maximoff accidentally blows up a building

Maximoff arrived at the scene when suddenly, Crossbones pulled the cord on his suicide vest in an effort to kill both him and Captain America. She managed to temporarily contain the explosion around Crossbones and tried to move its impact away by propelling him into the air. However, Maximoff inadvertently destroyed a nearby building with the blast, killing many of its occupants, much to her horror. Β] As she teared up in the streets, Black Widow arrived to comfort her. ⎜]

Feeling the Guilt

Maximoff watching the news report about her

The Avengers returned to the New Avengers Facility, where a month later, Maximoff still struggled with guilt over the deaths caused by the explosion. She watched a news report on the aftermath of the attack in Lagos questioning her ability to even operate in Nigeria.

Steve Rogers tried to assure the young woman that it was not her fault, saying he should have taken apart Crossbones' suicide vest before it went off. Not totally convinced, Maximoff stated they were both at fault then, to which Rogers reminded her that despite the casualties, they were able to stop Crossbones from killing more. The two were interrupted by Vision, whom Maximoff scolded for once again phasing through the wall to get into her room instead of using the door. Vision apologized and informed Rogers that Tony Stark had arrived with Thaddeus Ross at the Facility. Β]

Avengers Civil War

Sokovia Accords

Maximoff, along with the rest of the Avengers, met up with Thaddeus Ross and Tony Stark who introduced them to the Sokovia Accords, a set of internationally ratified legal documents that provides regulation and a framework for the military/law enforcement deployment of enhanced individuals which included Maximoff.

Maximoff is shown footage of the recent fight

Ross showed footage from battles that the Avengers fought in, showing the destruction and death that followed. When Ross showed them footage from the aftermath of their fight with Crossbones in Lagos, Nigeria, Maximoff felt the guilt seeing the damage that she blamed herself for.

As the Avengers privately discussed the Accords, Maximoff was unsure at the time whether she should sign or not but stayed mostly silent during the discussion. When Stark told them about Charlie Spencer, a victim from the Battle of Sokovia, Maximoff once again felt uneasy due to her tragic past with Sokovia. When she brought up the fact that she would be hunted if they didn't sign, Vision assured her that they would protect her.

Maximoff displays her abilities towards Vision

While the other Avengers left to deal with Winter Soldier and attend the meeting in Vienna, Maximoff stayed at the facility under the watch of Vision. Vision tried to cook her something to lift her spirits, though his inexperience with food left it wanting. The two Avengers had a heart-to-heart about their powers and how they are feared by others, but when Maximoff tried to leave the facility, Vision stopped her, telling her that Stark had asked him to ensure she did not leave the compound until the debate with the Accords were over. Β]

Rescued by Hawkeye

Maximoff and Hawkeye are stopped by Vision

Later, Steve Rogers sent Clint Barton to retrieve Maximoff from the Avengers Facility where she was being supervised by Vision. Barton created an explosion outside to distract Vision. As Maximoff watched Vision, she sensed a presence behind her and launched a knife at the intruder, stopping her attack when she realized it was Barton. Barton told her that they need to go as Captain America needed their help to fight against the Sokovia Accords as they were leaving, Vision returned and stopped them.

Scarlet Witch is forced to subdue Vision

Approaching the two, the trap that Barton had set up went off, paralyzing Vision with electricity. Barton began to leave again, but Maximoff hesitated because she believed that she had caused enough damage. Barton tries to convince her to leave when Vision breaks free and he and Barton begin to fight. Vision easily overpowers Barton, but Barton looks to Maximoff for help.

Scarlet Witch manages to subdue Vision

Maximoff tells Vision to release Barton and that she is leaving Vision tells her he can not allow her to. Using her powers to control the Mind Stone to force him to phase and release Barton. Vision warns Maximoff that if she leaves that she will be feared by everyone but Maximoff tells Vision that she can only control her own fear and then blasts Vision many meters beneath the facility. With Vision subdued, Maximoff finally left with Barton en route to Germany to retrieve Scott Lang. Β]

Recruiting Scott Lang

Maximoff regroups with Steve Rogers in Berlin

After incapacitating Vision, Maximoff and Clint Barton went to go retrieve Scott Lang who had been recommended by Sam Wilson. The three were waiting in a van in Berlin when Rogers arrived. He thanked Maximoff for having his back and Maximoff replied that she needed to get off her ass, reflecting what Barton told her earlier.

When they introduced Lang to Rogers, Maximoff watched as Lang awkwardly talked with Rogers, then praised her as well. Later, an announcement was made saying the airport was being evacuated due to Tony Stark. The group all suited up and made their way to the Leipzig-Halle Airport where they would depart to Siberia. Β]

Clash of the Avengers

Maximoff and Hawkeye inside of the airport

Captain America and his team headed to the Leipzig-Halle Airport where a helicopter was waiting to take them to Siberia. However, anticipating an ambush, from Iron Man, they split up--Maximoff with Hawkeye. They positioned themselves inside the airport, and watched as Captain America was immediately surrounded. After Hawkeye freed Captain America, breaking the webs with an arrow, the two made their way to stay away from the conflict.

Maximoff successfully subduing Iron Man

However, they were spotted by Iron Man, who pursued them as they tried to escape, firing several missiles near them. Iron Man then confronted them and told Maximoff that she hurt Vision's feelings, and they argued about why she had been locked up. While Hawkeye was distracting Iron Man, Maximoff used her powers to launch several vehicles as projectiles in the parking garage behind him, finally burying him and buying them time to escape.

Maximoff runs with Captain America's team

Maximoff and Hawkeye managed to make their way to Captain America and his team, so they could get to the Quinjet that would take them to Siberia. As they made their way to the Quinjet, they were stopped by Vision, who fired a laser beam in front of them. He then warned them to stop, as the rest of Iron Man's team regrouped. The two teams stood on opposite sides of each other as they prepared to fight. Β]

Fighting Former Teammates

The battle between the Avengers then begun with the two teams charging at each other. Maximoff launched herself into the air towards Iron Man's team where she targeted Spider-Man by hurtling asphalt from the ground and nearby objects directly towards him, which he was able to evade.

Due to her abilities, and not being a physical fighter, Maximoff focused on protecting her allies whenever they would be subdued. As Black Widow and Hawkeye fought, Maximoff interfered with Widow's blow by pinioning her limb and then throwing her away from Hawkeye. Before moving on, she told Hawkeye to stop pulling his punches and proceeded to her next fight.

Maximoff just saves Bucky Barnes' life

When Black Panther and Bucky Barnes engaged in a fight, which Black Panther had the intent on killing him, Maximoff managed to narrowly stop him by blocking his claws from tearing out Barnes' throat. Having halted Black Panther's attacks, Maximoff then tossed him away from Barnes, keeping him safe. Β]

Winning a Losing Battle

Maximoff fighting against War Machine

As Iron Man's team pressed on, Falcon realized they could not win the battle and get everyone to Siberia. So, Hawkeye confirmed that only Captain America and Bucky Barnes could get to Siberia while the rest of the team stayed behind. To distract Iron Man's team, Ant-Man transformed into "Giant-Man," focusing the opposition on defeating him rather than stopping Captain America and Barnes from reaching the Quinjet.

Maximoff getting attacked by War Machine

However, War Machine managed to evade Giant-Man and pursued the two until Maximoff started hurling large objects at him, keeping him from reaching the hangar. Vision destroyed a traffic control tower so Captain America and Barnes could not escape but Maximoff used her powers to hold back the debris for them to pass. Seeing this, War Machine used a Stark Sonic Cannon to knock her out, causing the tower to fall.

Maximoff being comforted by Vision

After the battle, Vision went to check on Maximoff, and they apologized to each other. As Vision comforted Maximoff, War Machine requested Vision's back up in disabling Falcon's wing thrusters. Distracted, Vision accidentally grazed War Machine's arc reactor, disabling the suit and causing him to fall from the sky, paralyzing him upon impact, therefore letting Captain America and Barnes fly away to Siberia. Β]

Imprisoned in the Raft

Tony Stark watches Maximoff in her cell

After their defeat, Maximoff, Clint Barton, Sam Wilson and Scott Lang were arrested and imprisoned in the Raft, where she was the only one outfitted with a shock collar and put in a strait-jacket to prevent her using her powers. Tony Stark visited the prison to find out where Captain America went and was disturbed to see Maximoff's condition.

Maximoff imprisoned in the Raft

Rogers eventually infiltrated the Raft and freed Maximoff, Barton, Wilson and Lang from their cells. Despite being wanted fugitives, Rogers told Stark that should he ever need their help, all he would have to do is ask. Β] Following her liberation, Maximoff would occasionally depart from the fugitive Avengers to Scotland, where she would frequently meet up with Vision, who would take a human form and turn off any trackers, so the two could be with each other. ⎝] Γ]

Infinity War

Attack on Vision

Maximoff and Vision spend time together

One night, Vision began to feel an alert from the Mind Stone in his forehead, so he asked Maximoff to use her powers to feel it. She claimed that all she felt was him and the two embraced each other. They then went outside where Maximoff informed Vision of train times so that he could return to the Avengers Compound. Vision began suggesting that they form their own life together, which she was unsure about due to the promises they had made to their respective teams.

Before she can give her official answer, she then noticed a SBN news report about an alien attack in New York City and Tony Stark being missing. Vision prepared to leave, intending to join the fight, but Maximoff was reluctant to let him leave because she knew his life would be put at significant risk. Moments before he was about to reply to her, Vision was attacked by Corvus Glaive and Maximoff was thrown away by an energy blast from Proxima Midnight before she could strike back at Glaive.

Maximoff attempts to protect Vision

They then began to forcefully remove the stone from Vision's forehead, but Maximoff was able to fight them off. Maximoff attempted to escape with Vision and temporarily hid from Midnight and Glaive before they were found. Maximoff faced Midnight and barely managed to hold her own while Vision unsuccessfully fought Glaive on top of a church. When Vision again became subdued, Maximoff rescued him from Glaive and attempted to escape with Vision again by flight, but the two were blasted out of the air by Proxima Midnight and cornered in an empty train station.

Maximoff notices Steve Rogers' arrival

Maximoff prepared to be the final line of defense for Vision, until Steve Rogers arrived along with Black Widow and Falcon, who, with relative ease, managed to defeat the Black Order, but they escaped before they could be captured or killed by the reunited Avengers. The group decided that they had to return to the Avengers Compound in hopes of developing a plan to help Vision and gaining more information about their extraterrestrial attackers. Γ]

Trying to Save Vision

Following the battle at Scotland, Maximoff, Steve Rogers, Vision, Black Widow, and Falcon arrived at the New Avengers Facility. There they reunited with James Rhodes, who rebelled against Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross, and Bruce Banner, who had returned to Earth. They then discussed Thanos' mission and how he is trying to steal the Mind Stone from Vision. Vision came to the conclusion that the only way to make sure that wouldn't happen is if the stone was destroyed by Maximoff.

Maximoff disagrees with Vision's proposal

However, she rejected this idea, knowing it would kill him in the process. Despite Vision's persistence, Bruce Banner produced an alternative idea that entailed removing the stone, keeping Vision alive through the other components of his creation. However, this could not be done by Banner, so Rogers suggested that they go to Wakanda.

The group traveled to Wakanda seeking the aid of Shuri, the sister of T'Challa. As Vision was scanned by Shuri, Maximoff asked if she would be able to remove the stone. She told her that she could, but it would be difficult due to the two trillions neurons that needed to be dealt with carefully.

Maximoff contemplates joining in the battle

Suddenly, a swarm of Outrider Dropships landed outside the dome, causing everyone to go outside to defend Vision. Rogers ordered Maximoff to destroy the stone as soon as it was removed from Vision. Maximoff stood by Vision as he underwent the removal of the stone however, she noticed the battle occurring outside, witnessing the arrival of Threshers, causing her to realize she had to be out there. Γ]

Battle of Wakanda

Maximoff then left the room and made her way to the battlefield, where she saved Black Widow and Okoye by stopping the incoming Threshers and threw them on top of the Outriders. However, her presence of the battlefield allowed Proxima Midnight to notify Corvus Glaive that Vision was left unguarded by her. When Falcon pointed out Vision being in danger, Maximoff went to help him, but was struck in the head by Midnight, causing her to fall into a ditch.

Midnight then taunted Maximoff as she prepared to kill her, but was stopped when Black Widow and Okoye intervened. The two fought off the alien, as Maximoff recovered from the powerful blow she received. As the fight continued, the two found themselves overwhelmed by Midnight, who came close to killing Black Widow. However, Maximoff was able to step in and use her powers to stop Midnight by launching her into an incoming Thresher, ultimately killing her. Following this, she quickly returned to Vision's side to protect him. Γ]

Thanos' Victory

Maximoff being told to destroy the stone

Vision then sensed Thanos' arrival, causing everyone to be prepared, as they witnessed him appear through a portal. Maximoff was about to join the fight, but Vision told her that she had to destroy the stone. She continued to refuse to do so, but he begged her to, knowing it was the only way to thwart Thanos' plans. Vision then comforted her as she understood what had to be done, still greatly upset about doing it. He reassured her, stating that she could never hurt him and repeating her earlier words, "I just feel you."

In tears, Maximoff reluctantly unleashed a stream of psionic energy into the Stone while the other Avengers made futile attempts to stop Thanos. After easily defeating the Avengers, Thanos began to approach Maximoff and Vision. She then struck him with a separate stream of energy to stall him further, slowing him down significantly, before managing to destroy the Stone just as he was about to reach them. The Mind Stone shattered, releasing a huge blast of energy that knocked Maximoff to the ground and destroyed Vision's body.

Maximoff watches the restoration of Vision

As Maximoff laid on the ground, heartbroken, Thanos empathized with her pain, understanding the sacrifice of what she most loved. She bitterly stated that he knew nothing. She then watched in horror as Thanos used the Time Stone to restore Vision with the clear intent to rip the Mind Stone from his head. Maximoff attempted to stop him, but Thanos swatted her aside with little effort and ripped the Stone from Vision's head, killing him a second time. Now equipped with the final Mind Stone, the Infinity Gauntlet was complete.

With Thanos finally succeeding in his plan of collecting all of the Infinity Stones, he unleashed the full extent of his new power. With a mere snap of his fingers, Thanos began to exterminate half of all lives in the universe in random succession. As a countless number of beings began to fade from existence, Maximoff knelt over Vision's lifeless body in mourning before joining the multitudes of lost souls in being disintegrated. Γ]

Battle of Earth

Maximoff joins the fight against Thanos

At a point in 2023, the surviving Avengers had successfully retrieved all six Infinity Stones through Time Travel, thus enabling them to reverse the Snap. Maximoff, along with many other heroes, joined the Avengers in the battle against Thanos and his army by means of teleportation by the Masters of the Mystic Arts.

Maximoff fights alongside the Avengers

Maximoff arrived at the ruins of the Avengers Compound alongside Valkyrie, Korg, Miek and the rest of the Asgardians and Einherjar. With all heroes united, and armies rallied, Captain America then led the ensuing charge against Thanos' army. Maximoff used her powers to blast airborne enemies with large bolts of her psionic energy.

In the thick of the battle, an enraged Maximoff, with the recollection of Vision's death still fresh in her memory, faced the Mad Titan herself and blamed him for his death. Being an alternate version of his prime counterpart from 2014, Thanos retorted that he did not know who she was. In response, she taunted him that he would as she rapidly overwhelmed him by hurling enormous piles of debris and powerful blasts of energy. After breaking his Double-Edged Sword in half, Maximoff suspended Thanos in the air, peeling off his armor and slowly tearing him apart.

To save himself from her wrath, he was forced to call in an air strike. Maximoff then tried to shield herself, only to be knocked back by the blasts, sustaining only concussive force. Relief came in the form of Captain Marvel, who destroyed the Sanctuary II with ease. As Captain Marvel collected the Nano Gauntlet from Spider-Man, Maximoff joined her, alongside other female heroes, in breaching through the enemy lines to reach Luis' van and return the stones to their rightful places in time. She cleared a path through a horde of Outriders and single-handedly held back a Leviathan.

Maximoff continued to take out Thanos' army, using her powers while in flight, mainly defeating the bigger and stronger opponents. After an intense battle, Thanos and his entire army were defeated when Iron Man wielded the stones and snapped the forces out of existence, resulting in his own life being taken. Everyone gathered around the fallen hero and knelt before him, showing their respect. ⎞]

Remembering the Fallen

Maximoff attends Tony Stark's funeral

With everyone back to life and Thanos defeated, a funeral was held for Tony Stark at the Stark Eco-Compound, which Maximoff had attended along with her fellow Avengers. She stood with Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson as the funeral proceeded, where they watched Pepper Potts and Morgan Stark place Tony's Arc Reactor into the river and watched it float away.

Maximoff and Clint Barton comfort each other

After the funeral, Maximoff reunited with Clint Barton, who stood by her in silence, thinking of those they had lost. The two stood by a lake, and Barton expressed his desire for Natasha Romanoff, who had also died to obtain the Soul Stone, to know that they were successful. Maximoff assured him that Romanoff did know, as well as Vision, too. Having both recently lost people close to them, Maximoff and Barton both comforted each other. ⎞]

Due to her affiliation with the Avengers and her role in saving the universe, Maximoff was legally forgiven for her violation of the Sokovia Accords. ⎟]

WandaVision

Wanting Vision Back

Maximoff arrives to recover Vision's body

Two weeks after the Battle of Earth, Maximoff, wanting to have a funeral for Vision, tracked his body to S.W.O.R.D. headquarters, as they collected him from Wakanda after the Snap. Maximoff pled that they return Vision to her, so they directed her to Tyler Hayward's office.

Maximoff says her final goodbye to Vision

Hayward addressed Maximoff's intention to recover Vision's body, so he showed her to where they were dismantling him, much to Maximoff's horror. Explaining to Hayward that Vision was not a weapon, Maximoff once more asked to take his body so she could bury him, but Hayward refused, suspecting that she may want to resurrect him. Maximoff stated that she couldn't do that, nor was that her intention, but Hayward still refused. Maximoff solemnly said her goodbye to Vision, discovering that she could no longer feel him, and left the facility.

Defeated, Maximoff drove out to Westview, New Jersey, where Vision had purchased a lot for them to build a house and live together. Arriving at the land, Maximoff, overcome by severe anguish, had a breakdown, causing her to unknowingly unleash her Chaos Magic for the first time, forming a new reality around her, transforming the entire town of Westview and depicting it as a 1950s sitcom. Maximoff was also able to conjure a house to live in, and finished by creating a new Vision. Upon casting her spell, she engulfed herself in her new reality, where she and Vision would go on to live happily together. Ώ]

Living in Suburbia

Maximoff and Vision drive through Westview

Now living in a reality of her own control, including all the inhabitants and storylines, Maximoff and the Vision she created became newlyweds who had just moved into town, attempting to blend in and live normal lives, despite Maximoff's telekinetic abilities and Vision being an android.

One day, the two noticed a heart drawn on their calendar, but neither knew what the occasion was. When Vision left to go to work, Maximoff was visited by Agnes, who welcomed her to the neighborhood. Maximoff believed that it was her and Vision's anniversary, so Agnes helped her prepare for the special night. Vision called Maximoff about the day's occasion, with the latter thinking it was their anniversary, and the former knowing it was a dinner with his boss and his wife. Maximoff, having the wrong idea, told Vision she had everything under control.

Maximoff uses her powers to make dinner

That night, when Vision came home with their dinner guests, Maximoff, wearing a night gown came down to surprise him, only to be shocked when she learned the true nature of the night. After changing her clothes, Maximoff was then forced to prepare a home cooked meal for the Harts, while also trying to hide her powers as she did. As Vision keep the Harts entertained, Maximoff struggled to cook dinner, so Vision checked in on her, and they switched roles, with Maximoff distracting the Harts. Despite the hijinks, Maximoff was able to make dinner, and the four sat down to eat.

Maximoff and Vision reaffirm their love

Ms. Hart asked Maximoff and Vision about their story, entailing where they moved from and how long they've been married, but neither of them were able to answer any of her questions. This led to Mr. Hart growing angry at the couple for not having an answer, until he begun chocking on his food. This caused the reality to break, so Maximoff told Vision to help Mr. Hart, and everything went back to normal. After the Harts left, Maximoff and Vision reflected on the dinner, and decided to make it the day of their anniversary, with Maximoff making them wedding rings. Δ]

The Magic Show

Maximoff is awoken in the night by noises

Transitioning into the 1960s, Maximoff and Vision were awoken in the night by strange noises, which turned out to just be the trees hitting the window. Because Maximoff altered their beds to now be joined together, she and Vision took the opportunity to make love.

Maximoff discovers an in color toy helicopter

The next day, Maximoff and Vision practiced their magic act for the neighborhood talent show, in which Vision was the magician, "Illusion," and Maximoff was his assistant, "Glamour." Later, Maximoff discovered a toy helicopter in color with a sword symbol outside her house, to her confusion, but was interrupted by Agnes, and the two headed to the planning committee meeting, hosted by Dottie Jones. At the meeting, Maximoff, who was having trouble fitting in with the other women, met and befriended Geraldine, as they continue to listen to Jones.

Maximoff hears a voice speak to her

After the meeting, Jones had Maximoff clean up, while also revealing that she has heard things about Maximoff and Vision. Maximoff tried to assure Jones that she didn't intend anyone harm, but Jones didn't believe her. Suddenly, a voice came through the radio, speaking directly to Maximoff, but it was soon stopped. This added to Maximoff's worries, but she carried on as normal. At the time of the talent show, Maximoff got dressed into her costume, and nervously waited for Vision to arrive.

Maximoff and Vision doing a magic show

Eventually, a malfunctioning Vision arrived, and Maximoff attempted to tell him about the strange occurrences she experienced, but they were brought on stage to begin their act. Despite Maximoff following the routine, Vision's state caused him to use his powers in front of the audience, which Maximoff had to cover up using her own powers, including making Geraldine appear in the Cabinet of Mysteries. After the show, Maximoff fixed Vision by removing the piece of gum inside him, and they returned home, being awarded Comedy Performance of the Year. Ε]

Sudden Pregnancy

Maximoff suddenly becomes pregnant

Maximoff and Vision reflected on their day, feeling that they fitted in with the town. Then, inexplicably, Maximoff became pregnant, much to their surprise and delight. They were interrupted by a noise outside, which was a beekeeper climbing out of the sewers, causing Maximoff to rewind reality so it would not be disrupted, as well as transitioning them into a color-filled 1970s. Ε]

Maximoff being checked on by Stan Nielson

The next day, Doctor Stan Nielson was called up to check on Maximoff, who detailed that she was about four months pregnant. Maximoff was completely delighted by all this, but Vision was concerned, due to the odd nature of her pregnancy, including her going further in stages. With the pregnancy occurring at a fast rate, Maximoff used her powers to build a room for the baby, while she and Vision debated the name, with Maximoff favoring Tommy, and Vision preferring Billy. Vision calculated that the baby should be born three days from then.

Maximoff's powers act out of her control

Due to the pregnancy's acceleration, Maximoff began to get contractions, which caused her powers to go haywire. Maximoff became nervous whether this would alert the residents of their true nature, which led to Vision expanding further, noting that the recent unusual events caused him to think something was wrong in Westview. But this concerning behavior from Vision made Maximoff rewind reality so she could continue living her ideal reality. At that moment, Maximoff's water broke, causing the plumbing to flood the house.

Maximoff gives birth to her twins

Vision rushed off to get Nielsen, leaving Maximoff at home, where she was soon joined by Geraldine, who Maximoff attempted to hide her pregnancy from, which became difficult, as she got closer to going into labor. As Maximoff listened to Geraldine, she noticed a stork walk around the house, which led to Geraldine discovering the truth. At that moment, Maximoff went into labor, so Geraldine helped deliver the baby, which she did successfully. Vision then arrived, but before the they could celebrate, Maximoff went into labor again, as she was having twins, who they named Tommy and Billy. Ζ]

Ejecting Geraldine

While Maximoff and Geraldine watched the twins, Maximoff mentioned she was a twin, bringing up Pietro Maximoff, before singing a Sokovian lullaby to her children.

Maximoff questions Geraldine's true identity

Geraldine noted that Pietro was killed by Ultron, breaking Maximoff out of her daze, and causing her to interrogate Geraldine on how she knew about her brother. Geraldine attempted to put Maximoff at ease, but was demanded to leave, and when Maximoff noticed her necklace with a sword symbol, she grew more intent on knowing her true identity. Η] Maximoff realized that Geraldine was not from Westview, and because she was trespassing within her reality, Maximoff used her powers to eject Geraldine out of the town.

Maximoff returns to living out her reality

Maximoff repaired the damaged walls with her powers, and then returned to her newborn twins, as Vision returned inside, asking about Geraldine. Maximoff told him that she returned home, but when she turned around, she was startled by Vision, who appeared as his corpse, causing her to look away in horror, but when she looked back, everything was normal again. Vision told Maximoff that they didn't have to stay in Westview, but she refuted it, saying it was their home, and that she had everything under control. ⎠]

Raising Tommy and Billy

Maximoff and Vision are helped by Agnes

Now transitioned into the 1980s, Maximoff and Vision struggled to stop their children from crying, including Maximoff not being able to use her powers on them. Agnes arrived to help look after Tommy and Billy, but began to break character and asked Maximoff if they should redo the scene, causing Vision to be suspicious, but Maximoff tried to act like everything was normal. They then noticed that Tommy and Billy had aged-up to five years old.

Maximoff suggests no longer hiding to Vision

Maximoff later discovered that her sons had brought home a dog, asking if they could keep it. When Agnes dropped by again with a dog house, and suggested the name "Sparky," Maximoff almost revealed her powers in front of her, much to Vision's concern. Maximoff claimed that she was tired of hiding, and felt Vision should embrace the same feelings, but he did not, and grew more worried. When Tommy and Billy asked once more if they could keep the dog, they aged themselves up again to ten years old, as Maximoff and Vision felt they were too young.

Maximoff talks to her children about family

While Maximoff watched her children trained Sparky, they asked about their father's whereabouts, as she had sent him off to work to distract him. This led to Maximoff talking to the boys about how she and Vision disagree occasionally, but it would only be temporary, just like how the boys would fight with each other, but still always be brothers. Tommy then asked his mother if she had a brother, so Maximoff told him about Pietro Maximoff, telling them that he was far away, and that it made her sad sometimes. Η]

Confronting S.W.O.R.D.

When Sparky alerted Maximoff to a breach inside the Hex, she went outside to investigate, where she discovered that S.W.O.R.D. had sent in a drone. Monica Rambeau attempted to speak with Maximoff, but she used her powers to disable the drone, before they fire upon her.

Maximoff confronts S.W.O.R.D. out of the Hex

Maximoff picked up the drone, and wearing her Avengers uniform, she exited the Hex, where she was surrounded by S.W.O.R.D. agents who took aim at her. After throwing the destroyed drone back to S.W.O.R.D., Maximoff confronted Director Tyler Hayward, warning him to leave her alone, and that she won't bother them if they didn't bother her. Hayward refused Maximoff's request, noting that she had taken an entire town hostage, to which Maximoff retorted that they were the ones with the guns pointed at her.

Rambeau intervened, asserting that Maximoff was the one in control, and upon recognizing her as "Geraldine," Maximoff threateningly conjured a ball of psionic energy. Rambeau attempted to get through to Maximoff, claiming she didn't know the drone was armed, and that Maximoff, being a telepath and having all the residents in her control, knew Rambeau was a S.W.O.R.D. agent all along, and trusted her to deliver her babies. Rambeau deduced that Maximoff, knew she was an ally that wanted to help her, but Maximoff told her she had everything she wanted, and no one was going to take it from her again. Maximoff then returned back into the Hex, briefly controlling the agents to aim at Hayward. Η]

Vision's Confrontation

Maximoff talks to her children about death

Back to her reality, Maximoff helped her children look for Sparky, who had gone missing. They were saddened to discover he had died, but Maximoff told her sons that they couldn't escape the sadness, nor could she reverse death.

Maximoff and Vision fight about her actions

After Vision finished burying Sparky, he brought up with Maximoff that he spoke with Norm, revealing that he knew she was controlling everyone in Westview. Maximoff attempted to deflect the conversation, but Vision stated that she couldn't control him. Maximoff tried one last time to end the conversation, but Vision persisted, becoming angry with her. Vision demanded to know what was outside of Westview, and exclaimed he didn't know who he was, so Maximoff reassured him of who he was.

Maximoff is reunited with "Pietro Maximoff"

Unconvinced, Vision asked why there were no children in Westview, irritating Maximoff as she continue to tell Vision she wasn't controlling everything. Maximoff revealed that she wasn't sure of how it all started, but Vision continued, telling her that what she was doing was wrong. At that moment, the doorbell rang, which Maximoff did not cause, although Vision did not believe her. Maximoff opened the door, but did not recognize the person standing before her, who revealed himself to be "Pietro Maximoff", although he looked different, to Maximoff's shock. Η]

Halloween Celebrations

Maximoff dresses up for Halloween

Having transitioned into the 1990s on Halloween, Maximoff, wanting to spend the day with her family, dressed up as a Sokovian fortune teller, and had Vision dress up as a Mexican wrestler, having a kink for them. Maximoff and Vision discussed her "brother," who she was suspicious of, and was surprised when Vision told her that he wouldn't be joining them, as he was now going less along with Maximoff's control, but she let him leave, with "Pietro" filling in for him.

Maximoff attempts to test "Pietro Maximoff"

While walking through the streets to take Tommy and Billy Maximoff trick-or-treating, Maximoff decided to test "Pietro," asking about their childhood, but he attempted to put her suspicion at ease, acknowledging that he knew he looked different, and saw it as Maximoff not wanting to be reminded of the past. After "Pietro" took the twins to collect more candy, Maximoff encountered Herb, who revealed to her that Vision wasn't on duty for the Westview Neighborhood Watch, to her confusion. Herb asked if Maximoff wanted anything changed, but she reassured him that it was fine.

Maximoff witnesses her son gain powers

Disappointed by "Pietro's" influence on Tommy and Billy, Maximoff made them give back all the candy they stole, where she continued to question "Pietro," who outlined his role that she wanted him to play. After asking him about his missing accent, "Pietro" then explained to Maximoff how after he was killed by Ultron, he heard her calling him, so he came to Westview, knowing she needed him. Suddenly, when her sons returned, they discovered that Tommy gained super speed, like his uncle, so she told him to take his brother with him when he runs off, and not to go past Ellis Avenue. ⎖]

Expanding the Hex

Maximoff and her "brother" discuss the Hex

As Maximoff and "Pietro Maximoff" admired the festivities set up in Westview, the two discussed Maximoff's current life. "Pietro" then began talking about how Maximoff was controlling all of the residents, noting that she took in some ethical considerations, and stating that he was impressed by her upgraded power set. When "Pietro" asked how Maximoff created the Hex, she wasn't sure, only remembering being filled with despair. Maximoff was interrupted by the sight of "Pietro" momentarily appearing as a bullet riddled corpse. much to her horror.

Maximoff expands the Hex to save Vision

Suddenly, Maximoff heard Billy Maximoff frantically calling out to her, telling her that Vision was in trouble, having just acquired telepathy powers. Maximoff attempted to calm her son down, asking where Vision was, but she was angered when "Pietro" said that her husband couldn't die twice, so she blasted him away. After telling him to focus, Billy then proceed to detail what he saw to his mother, resulting in her realizing he was outside the Hex. Maximoff then used her powers to freeze all the residents, and expand the Hex, saving Vision from death, and enveloping many S.W.O.R.D. agents. ⎖]

True Power Revealed

Chaos Magic Falling Apart

Maximoff noticing reality go out of control

After expanding the Hex, reality was transitioned into the 2000s, taking form as a mockumentary styled sitcom, where Maximoff, in a talking head, reflected on her actions. Alone in her bed, Maximoff ignored her sons, who came to her with problems. Maximoff soon came downstairs, deciding to isolate herself, where she noticed reality uncontrollably glitch out.

Maximoff confesses about her confusion

Deciding not to worry about Vision's whereabouts, Maximoff spoke to her children about how the man claiming to be Pietro Maximoff was not actually him, and that she didn't have any answers on everything that was happening. They were then visited by Agnes, who decided to take care of Tommy and Billy for Maximoff so she could have time to herself. Maximoff continued to witness things inexplicably morph appearances, and when she talked about not knowing what was happening, her interviewer asked if it was what she deserved, to Maximoff's confusion.

Later, Maximoff was surprised by the arrival of Monica Rambeau, but immediately became angered when she brought up Vision and what Tyler Hayward was doing, having had enough of dealing with S.W.O.R.D.. She attacked Rambeau with her powers and brought the fight outside, which led her neighbors to witness the event. Maximoff accused Rambeau of lying and, using her powers, threw her to the ground, but to her surprise Rambeau was able to land safely with her new powers. Maximoff began to threaten Rambeau, but she withheld, which Rambeau noted was the difference between her and Hayward, and that he was making her to be the villain. Maximoff suggested that she may already be a villain, but Rambeau attempted to get through to her, only to be stopped by Agnes, who took Maximoff to her home. ⎗]

Learning the Truth

Upon entering Agnes' house, Maximoff asked about her sons' whereabouts, so Agnes directed her to the basement. Maximoff discovered the basement to be a dark sanctum, which she explored, until she was soon joined by Agnes, who revealed herself to be a witch named Agatha Harkness who had been secretly influencing Maximoff's reality. ⎗]

Maximoff is interrogated by Agatha Harkness

Learning the truth about Harkness, Maximoff attempted to read her mind, but was unable to, so she once again asked about her children's whereabouts, but when she went to use her powers, they did not work, as Harkness had cast a protection spell. Harkness restrained Maximoff, and detailed how she waited patiently, and worked slowly, including using a fake Pietro Maximoff to manipulate her, to figure out how Maximoff created the Hex, which was a combination of many spells being cast at once. However, she was unsuccessful, and was not able to get an answer from Maximoff.

Maximoff relives moments from her past

Harkness recalled on what Maximoff said about only remembering feeling immense sadness before the Hex, and decided to enter her past to find the answer. Maximoff initially refused, but was forced when her children were threatened. Maximoff proceeded to live out the day her parents died, which were the origins of her witch abilities, then when she encountered the Mind Stone, which increased her power, then falling in love with Vision, and finally when she found Vision's body at S.W.O.R.D. Headquarters, leading to her creating the Hex in Westview, due to all the built up trauma. Ώ]

Battle of Westview

Maximoff is revealed to be the Scarlet Witch

Snapping out of her past, Maximoff heard her sons calling out to her for help, so she rushed outside, where Agatha Harkness had them by the throats. Realizing the truth, Harkness explained how a being like Maximoff, which was perceived as a myth, was dangerous, having powers of spontaneous creation, which she had been using to live in a sitcom. Maximoff demanded that Harkness release her children, and she replied by telling her that her sons, Vision, and their reality were all Chaos Magic, declaring Maximoff as the Scarlet Witch. Ώ]

Being outside the runes, Scarlet Witch was able to use her powers, so she attacked Agatha Harkness, releasing Tommy and Billy Maximoff from her grip. After ordering her sons to go inside their house, Scarlet Witch continued to fight Harkness, who was actually stealing her magic, and offering to let Scarlet Witch continue living in Westview if she gave it all up to her. Scarlet Witch rejected Harkness' offer, and knocked her aside with a car, but could not find her in the wreckage.

Suddenly, Scarlet Witch witnessed Vision arrive, now with a white body, so she asked if it was really him, but having been programmed by Tyler Hayward, he attempted to kill her. Before White Vision could be successful in his mission, Scarlet Witch was saved by the Vision she created, and the two reunited and amended before resuming the fight against Harkness and the White Vision.

Maximoff is confronted by her actions

Following Harkness into the middle of town, Scarlet Witch listened to her detail her true origin, stating that her power exceeds that of the Sorcerer Supreme, and her destiny was to destroy the world. Scarlet Witch refused to accept this, so Harkness freed "Dottie" from Scarlet Witch's control, along with the rest of the town's residents, who surrounded their enthraller. They all told Scarlet Witch how they hated what she was doing to them, which overwhelmed her, causing the unstable witch to accidentally hurt everyone.

Maximoff has some of her magic drained

Now seeing the truth behind her ideal reality, Scarlet Witch decided to set everyone free, and began destroying the Hex. However, when her husband and children arrived, they were being torn apart, as they were created within the Hex and therefore could not exist outside of it, so Scarlet Witch stopped destroying the Hex, keeping her family alive. Harkness attacked them, so Scarlet Witch protected her family with a force field, but it allowed Harkness to steal some of her magic, draining more of Scarlet Witch's life. ⎘]

Duel Against Agatha Harkness

The family were then surrounded by Agatha Harkness, White Vision, and now S.W.O.R.D., who breached the Hex when it opened. Scarlet Witch told her sons to deal with the soldiers as she went to continue fighting Harkness, now utilising and embracing her magic. Using her mental manipulation powers, Scarlet Witch confronted Harkness at the scene of her trial, but it soon backfired, with Harkness once again asking for her powers, promising to fix her pain, but Scarlet Witch refused and fought back.

Scarlet Witch reclaiming all of her magic

The showdown now took to the sky, where Scarlet Witch, pretending to give Harkness what she wanted, secretly began casting runes around the walls of the Hex to neutralize her enemy's magic. Having appeared to have had all her magic stolen, Scarlet Witch floated in the sky, with her entire body drained, as Harkness revealed the Hex could not be fixed, and then went to finish her off, only for nothing to happen. Wanda stopped her deception as she revealed that she casted runes around the hex so only she can use magic. As Wanda reclaimed her magic from Harkness, she transformed into the Scarlet Witch.

Returning to the ground, Harkness asked what would become of her, so Scarlet Witch revealed that she was going to trap her inside her former role as the "nosy neighbor." Harkness attempted to warn her of what she's now unleashed, stating she'll need her, but Scarlet Witch ignored her and transformed Harkness into "Agnes." Scarlet Witch told Agnes that she lived in Westview, and that she'd be seeing her in the future, before walking away and reuniting with her family, knowing it was the end for them. ⎘]

Saying Goodbye

Maximoff says goodbye to her children

As the family returned to their home, Maximoff began removing the Hex, freeing everyone inside Westview. Knowing their children would be erased when the Hex was gone, Maximoff and Vision tucked them into bed, and said their goodbyes to them, not wanting to see them disappear.

Maximoff witnesses Vision being destroyed

Maximoff and Vision headed downstairs, where they understood it was time for them to say goodbye, too. Seeing the Hex closing in, Vision asked Maximoff what he was, so she explained that he was created from the piece of the Mind Stone inside of her, as well as her memories and emotions for the original Vision. In his final moment, Vision acknowledged that they've said goodbye to each other before, so it would be a matter of time before they are reunited again. At that moment, the Hex completely disappeared, along with Vision, her children, and the house around her.

Standing alone in the empty lot of where her house used to be, Maximoff returned to the middle of town, passing all of the people she had enthralled, feeling a lot of shame as they scowled at her. Maximoff approached Monica Rambeau, who did not share the resentment towards her, but empathized with Maximoff, knowing what she was feeling, and what she had to sacrifice. Maximoff declared that she would try to understand her power, so she said goodbye to Rambeau before flying away, just as the police arrived.

Scarlet Witch reading from the Darkhold

Maximoff decided to seclude herself, and moved into a cabin in Sokovia, where she would learn more about herself, and the power she possessed. Becoming more confident in her abilities, Maximoff was able to coexist in two forms. Her physical form performing minimal tasks like brewing a cup of tea while her astral form would read the Darkhold to learn and understand her power. One day while reading the Darkhold, Maximoff heard what seemed to be the cries of her children calling for help. ⎘]


Career as a Jazz Drummer

In 1937, Buddy Rich played as a member of his first significant jazz group, a band led by clarinetist Joe Marsala and guitarist Jack Lemaine. Buddy Rich's big break came a year later when he was hired to play with Tommy Dorsey. Later, he met Frank Sinatra, who became the band's lead vocalist in 1939. In addition to playing with Tommy Dorsey, Buddy Rich was the drummer at various times for Artie Shaw, Benny Carter, and Harry James.

In 1942, World War II interrupted Rich's drumming career, and he served with the U.S. Marines. Upon his return from the war, Rich became the highest paid sideman in history, earning $1,500 a week.

In 1946, Frank Sinatra provided the financial backing for Rich to form his own band. However, the band failed to bring in enough money to support itself. Years later, in 1966, Rich formed his own big band once again—this time with much more success.

In 1966, Buddy Rich recorded a big-band style medley of songs from the musical West Side Story on his album Swingin' New Big Band. The album highlighted Rich's drumming skills in addition to the talents of the entire band. Soon, the medley became a staple of Rich's live performances. The complexity of the piece required almost a month of continual rehearsals to perfect for the live stage.

Rich is also commonly associated with Bill Reddie's "Channel One Suite." The piece ranges from about 12 minutes to 26 minutes in live performances and contains two or three drum solos. A live recording of the piece appears on Buddy Rich's 1968 album Mercy, Mercy recorded at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.


Tommy

Tommy is the fourth album by the English rock band The Who, released by Track and Polydor in the United Kingdom and Decca and MCA in the United States. A double album telling a loose story about a "deaf, dumb, and blind boy" who becomes the leader of a messianic movement, Tommy was the first musical work to be billed overtly as a rock opera. Released in 1969, the album was mostly composed by guitarist Pete Townshend. In 1998 it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for "historical, artistic and significant" value.

The opera was written to express how Townshend felt after being taught by Meher Baba and other writings and expressing the enlightenment he believes he received — "a metaphorical story of different states of consciousness."

Tommy Walker: The main character of the story, from whom the album gets its name.

Captain Walker: Tommy's father.

Mrs. Walker: Tommy's mother. (First name given as Nora in the film version)

The Lover: a romantic partner of Tommy's mother. (Uncle Frank Hobbs in the film version)

Uncle Ernie: Tommy's "wicked uncle", a paedophile. The de facto antagonist

Cousin Kevin: Tommy's cousin, the sadistic "school bully" who brutalizes Tommy when left at home with him. The de facto antagonist

The Hawker: The leader of a cult, where Tommy's mother takes him in hope for a cure for his affliction.

Local Lad: The reigning champion of a pinball tournament, until Tommy defeats him and takes the title of "Pinball Wizard". (This character was merged with Cousin Kevin for the Broadway version.)

The Acid Queen (AKA "The Gypsy"): A prostitute who deals in hallucinogens and attempts to heal Tommy.

The Doctor: A doctor who attempts to heal Tommy and finds out that his disabilities are mental rather than physical. (also known as The Specialist, and in the film, "A. Quackson" is the payee on Frank's check.)

Sally Simpson: One of Tommy's "disciples".

Story in chronological order

"Overture"/"It's a Boy" - British Army Captain Walker is reported missing in action during World War I, and is not expected ever to be seen again. Shortly after his wife, Mrs. Walker, receives this news, she gives birth to their son, Tommy. In the film version, Captain Walker is a Royal Air Force pilot

"1921" - Approximately four years later, Captain Walker returns home and discovers that his wife has found a new lover. Captain Walker confronts the two and kills the lover. Tommy witnesses this through his mirror. To cover up the crime, Tommy's parents tell Tommy that he didn't see it, didn't hear it, and he will say "nothing to no one ever in life". A traumatized Tommy becomes deaf, dumb, and blind. (In the film version, however, this plot point is changed: Captain Walker confronts his wife and is killed by the lover.)

"Amazing Journey"/"Sparks" - Tommy's subconscious reveals itself to him as a tall stranger dressed in silvery robes, and the vision sets him on an internal spiritual journey upon which he learns to interpret all physical sensations as music.

"Eyesight to the Blind (The Hawker)" - Tommy's parents take him to a church of a cult religion to try to cure him. "Eyesight…" is the cult leader's song.

"Christmas" - Tommy's parents, reminded by the advent of a religious time of year, worry that his soul is at risk of damnation, since he is unaware of Jesus or prayer.

"Cousin Kevin" - Tommy's parents become complacent and leave him in the care of his cousin Kevin, who bullies and tortures Tommy without fear of anyone finding out. He ultimately gets bored with Tommy's limited reactions.

"Acid Queen"/"Underture" - Tommy's parents once again try to cure him, this time by placing him in the care of a woman who tries to coax Tommy into full consciousness with hallucinogenic drugs and sex. "Underture" is an extensive instrumental representing Tommy's experience on acid.

"Do You Think It's Alright?"/"Fiddle About" - Tommy is left in the care of his uncle Ernie, an alcoholic child molester who, like cousin Kevin, takes the opportunity to abuse Tommy without fear of being caught.

"Pinball Wizard" - Tommy is discovered to have a talent for pinball, and quickly defeats the game's tournament champion. This propels Tommy to international celebrity status. "Pinball Wizard" is the reigning champion's song.

"There's a Doctor"/"Go to the Mirror" - Tommy's parents find a medical specialist to once more try to understand and cure his symptoms. After numerous tests, they are told that there is nothing medically wrong with him, and that his problems are psychosomatic. However, as they are trying to reach him, Tommy's subconscious is also trying to reach out to them.

"Tommy Can You Hear Me?"/"Smash the Mirror" - Tommy's mother continues to try to reach him, and becomes frustrated that he completely ignores her while staring directly at a mirror. Out of this frustration she smashes the mirror.

"Sensation"/"Miracle Cure" - The smashing of the mirror snaps Tommy back into reality. Tommy's cure becomes a public sensation and he attains guru-like status. Thereafter he assumes a quasi-messianic mantle and tries to lead his fans to an enlightenment similar to his own.

"Sally Simpson" - One of Tommy's "disciples", Sally is a reverend's daughter who sneaks out of her home to attend one of Tommy's sermons. She ultimately attempts to touch him, only to be thrown from the stage by security and suffers a gash on her face.

"I'm Free" - Tommy attempts to spiritually enlighten those that are listening to his sermons. All subsequent versions (except Live at Leeds) place this song immediately after "Smash the Mirror" as a direct reaction to his "cure."

"Welcome"/"Tommy's Holiday Camp" - Tommy opens his own home to anyone willing to join him, and urges them to bring as many people with them as they can. His house is quickly filled though, so he builds a holiday camp to try to accommodate everybody. Tommy's uncle Ernie is running the holiday camp and it's implied he is using the camp as an opportunity for profit and is ignoring the camp's purpose of heightening people spiritually.

"We're Not Gonna Take It" - Tommy demands that his followers play pinball and blind, deafen and mute themselves in order to truly reach their spiritual height, but the heavy-handedness of his cult and the exploitation of its followers by his family and associates cause his followers to revolt against him. Abandoned by his followers and worshipers, Tommy gains a new enlightenment. This is also the path the movie takes.

In its original album version, the story is quite scattered, and details were often filled in post facto by Townshend in interviews. As other adaptations of the album appeared, some details were filled out and others were changed. Notably, some later versions change the time frame from post-World War I/1921 to post-World War II/1951. The film version of Tommy also changes a major plot point: instead of Captain Walker killing his wife's new lover, the lover kills Captain Walker.

Analysis and history

When Tommy was released, critics were split between those who thought the album was a masterpiece, the beginnings of a new genre, and those that felt it was exploitative because of its dark theme. The album was banned by the BBC and certain U.S. radio stations. Ultimately, the album became a huge commercial success, as did The Who's frequent live performances of the rock opera in the following years, elevating The Who to a new level of prestige and international stardom.

Although Tommy is conventionally described as a rock opera, author and Who historian Richard Barnes states that this definition is not strictly correct, since Tommy does not utilise the classic operatic formulae of staging, scenery, acting and recitative. According to Barnes, Tommy could be more accurately described as a "rock cantata" or a "rock song cycle". It most closely resembles an oratorio (e.g. Handel's "Messiah") in form, as it includes instrumental, choral and solo sections, with no dialogue between characters, and no sets, costumes or choreography. A counter argument to Barnes would be that new operas are frequently performed without the first three features before a full mounting, similarly to Tommy, and some of its songs, such as "1921", "Christmas", "Do You Think It's All Right?" and "Go to the Mirror" have the qualities of recitative and dialogue, while it has subsequently been performed with choreography and costuming, including by the Seattle Opera in 1971 and by a Canadian ballet company (dancing to the album recording) shortly thereafter.

Musically, the original album is a complex set of pop-rock arrangements, generally based upon Townshend's acoustic guitar and built up with many overdubs by the four members of the band using many instruments, including bass, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, organ, drum kit, gong, timpani, trumpet, French horn, three-part vocal harmonies and occasional doubling on vocal solos. Many of the instruments only appear intermittently—the 10-minute "Underture" features a single toot on the horn—and when overdubbed many of the instruments are mixed at low levels. Townshend mixes fingerpicking in with his trademark power chords and fat riffs. His later interest in synthesizers is foreshadowed by the use of taped sounds played in reverse to give a whistling, chirping sound on "Amazing Journey".

The tracks "Overture", "Pinball Wizard", "I'm Free", and the "See Me, Feel Me / Listening to You" reprise were released as singles and were hits on the radio. "Pinball Wizard" reached the top 20 in the U.S. and the top five in the UK, and was a hit for Elton John in 1975/76 (who played the part of the pinball champion in the film). "See Me, Feel Me / Listening To You" landed high in the top 20 in the U.S. and "I'm Free" reached the top 40. The tracks "Overture", "Christmas", "I’m Free", and "See Me Feel Me" were released on an EP in late 1970. The "Overture" was also covered by a band called The Assembled Multitude and received a lot of airplay. Tommy was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

Several structural precedents for Tommy exist in Townshend's work, including "Glow Girl" (1968), "Rael" (1967), and the sectional work "A Quick One While He's Away" (1966). In 2004, Uncut released a CD titled The Roots of Tommy containing music that they asserted influenced Tommy's creation. Among the included songs are the blues songs that Townshend included or attempted to, such as Mose Allison's "A Young Man" and Sonny Boy Williamson's "Eyesight to the Blind," as well as The Pretty Things' "S.F. Sorrow Is Born," material from Mark Wirtz's A Teenage Opera, and music by groups such as The Zombies, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Nirvana, The Kinks, and music hall comedian Max Miller, who apparently influenced the character of Uncle Ernie.

A year before the album came out Townshend explained his ideas and apparently actually thought out some of the structure of the opera during a famous Rolling Stone interview.
