WandaVision: What Are Monica Rambeau’s Powers?

Episode five of WandaVisionMonica Rambeau, aptly titled “On A Very Special Episode,” had some medical tests after her time at the “Hex” in Westview. Rather than getting straightforward answers about how her body was affected, the results gave SWORD’s agents a pause and suggested what was to come for the character. In the comics, Monica went through a few code names including Photon, Pulsar, Spectrum, and the second Captain Marvel. Could the possible revelation of powers go on WandaVision set up their role in Captain Marvel 2?

After Monica was expelled from Westview in episode four, she undergoes a series of tests, including x-rays and blood tests, to determine how she was affected by going through the force field. The x-ray is blank, which could either be a technical mishap or it means that Monica is emitting too much energy for the machine to take a picture. Since they are in a state-of-the-art facility, we tend to radiate energy. In the comics, Monica gains her powers after being hit by an experimental weapon. so that it can transform into any form of energy within the electromagnetic spectrum. While not exactly an experimental weapon, the “Hex” is an energy force field created by Wanda’s grief, and Monica is one of the few to be sucked in and then thrown out. It’s possible that Monica absorbed the energy when she left the “Hex” and is well on her way to becoming the Monica we know and love from the comics.

In a recent interview with Lazy tomato televisionMonica’s actress Teyonah Parris hinted that she’ll be a superhero in the upcoming sequel. “I’m excited to join Brie and Iman as an actress and see what brings these three superheroes together – Carol Danvers Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and Monica Rambeau – [to see] What’s going to happen in this movie. But the rest – we just have to wait a few weeks before we can really talk about it, “she added. Could also point out Monica’s development WandaVision? I think we just have to watch and find out.
