History

On Earth-58163 (the altered reality created by the Scarlet Witch of Earth-616), Sir Warren Traveler was once a Sorcerer Supreme in the service of the King of England.[1] He greatly enhanced his power by replacing his right eye with the Eye of Watoomb (the remnant of his world's Wand of Watoomb), which he located at a magic shop in Hell's Kitchen. After acquiring the Eye, Traveler went on a rampage that was stopped by Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), who punched him into submission.

Throughout the following seven years, Traveler continually attacked Captain Marvel in order to get revenge on her to no avail,[2] leading up to a confrontation in which she thwarted his attack by throwing a "cat" (later named Chewie) at him, thus disrupting the time-travel spell he was casting and sending him to another dimension alongside the feline alien.[1][3]

A month after reality had been returned to normal, Traveler returned to Earth with the cat. He attacked Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers) in order to settle their unfinished business, but ended up losing his grip on reality and started treating her as an old friend. Confused, Ms. Marvel knocked him out and took him to Doctor Strange. Strange determined that the switching of realities had caused Traveler's mental instability and convinced Carol to leave, intending to depower Traveler before he could become a more serious problem. However, Traveler freed himself from his restraints, seized the Wand of Watoomb in Strange's possession, and attacked him with it.[2]

Strange was able to telepathically contact Ms. Marvel and she returned to the Sanctum Sanctorum to rescue him. Marvel ended up being pulled into Earth-6095, an alternate dimension where the entire population of Earth had been devoured by a swarm of alien insects. There, she was confronted by Traveler, who had regained his sanity thanks to the Wand of Watoomb he had stolen from Strange. Planning to travel across realities to access other sources of magic that could keep his mind stabilized, Traveler thanked Ms. Marvel for revealing to him the potential of alternate realities, and took her to the past of the one they were in, right to the moment the swarm of alien insects arrived on Earth. Traveler planned to leave Carol there to die, but saw himself forced to return them both to her home reality after she was able to steal the Wand from him.

Traveler intentionally took them back seconds before he had started his battle against Doctor Strange in the Sanctum, taking advantage of the situation to steal the Wand back and escape to parts unknown. Ms. Marvel then joined forces with Strange to deal with Traveler's past self. He vanished soon after unleashing the magic energy that sent Carol to Earth-6095, thus closing the temporal loop he had created.[4]

Powers

Magic: Sir Warren Traveler is a skilled sorcerer, capable of casting a wide variety of spells, including but not limited to:

  • Flight: Traveler is capable of propelling himself through the air.[1]
  • Energy Manipulation: Traveler can generate, control, and manipulate various types of energy.[1][5]
    • Energy Blasts: Traveler can fire powerful energy bolts from his hands.[1][2]
    • Solid Energy Constructs: Traveler is capable of turning the energy he generates from his hands into magical constructs shaped in the form of animals, be them fantastical or not. Thus far he was shown to have summoned a dragon, a bull,[1] and a manticore.[2]
  • Time-Travel: One of Traveler's spells allows him to jump around in time within a specified reality. Originally, he could only travel a few seconds forward or back with each jump,[1] but his acquisition of a complete Wand of Watoomb increased that to years.[4]
  • Dimensional Travel: Thanks to the Eye of Watoomb, Traveler can access alternate realities and (presumably) even separate dimensions within them.[1][5][3]

Weaknesses

Insanity: The more magic Traveler uses, the crazier he gets. Doctor Strange theorized that's due to him being out of sync with the magic forces he was once attuned to.[5]

Paraphernalia

Equipment

Eye of Watoomb: The last piece of the Wand of Watoomb from Traveler's home reality. It augments his powers considerably and allows him to access other realities.[2][3]

Wand of Watoomb: Besides enhancing Traveler's magical powers to great lengths, the Wand also makes it easier for him to access other realities and keeps his mind stable enough for him to handle his powers, creating in him a certain dependence for the item.[4][3]

Notes

  • It's unclear whether Traveler was really the Sorcerer Supreme of Earth-58163 or just the chief sorcerer of its Earth. There's also the possibility that "Sorcerer Supreme" was simply a title bestowed upon him.[3]
  • Greatly resembles Judas Traveler and may be a counterpart of his.
