Teddy Altman, AKA Hulkling, is the a shape-shifting son of a Kree and a Skrull plus the current king of space. From their first flirtations as Young Avengers, to their “I Do’s” during EMPYRE, we recall the major firsts of this Super Hero couple!


First Date

in Avengers: The Children's Crusade (2010) #1

Many couples argue about what, and where, their first date was. But there’s no arguing that Wiccan and Hulkling’s first on-panel dating discussion happened here. Read carefully because it all went down during a virtual battle against the Sinister Six.

First Flight

in Young Avengers (2005) #2

There’s no obvious revelation in their “first flight” together, but it does reveal the first time that Hulkling trusted Wiccan with his life. This kind of trust builds on the love they eventually share when they realize they’re more than just coworkers in YOUNG AVENGERS (2005).

First Kiss

in Avengers: The Children's Crusade (2010) #9

Read the run that defines Wiccan’s origin! Immediately following the semi-proposal in issue #9, Billy and Teddy shared a passionate kiss for the first time. Though their moment didn’t last thanks to an interruption, it left a lasting impression.

First (Big) Fight

in Young Avengers (2013) #1

All relationships have their first big fight, and this power couple is no exception. Something to keep in mind: this fight was about being Super Heroes, something that Billy and Teddy had given up on after they lost too many of their friends to danger—or so Billy believed.

First "I Love You"

in Young Avengers (2013) #14

If we’re being nitpicky, the first “I love you” came from Billy after the couple survived a harrowing experience which sowed doubt in their relationship. Although, Teddy did blurt out his feelings during their fight in issue #1 too.

First Apartment

The couple’s first cohabitation came as an unexpected gift from New Avengers leader Sunspot. They received a sizable penthouse suite overlooking Central Park in New York City, complete with celebratory balloons and an unbeatable sunset.

First Vow
