The last time we saw Wanda Maximoff (“Scarlet Witch”, although she hasn’t been called that yet, officially) was at Tony Stark’s funeral at the end of ‘Avengers: Endgame’. Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) mourns with Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), both lost to Stark and another close person: Hawkeye mourned Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) and Wanda Vision (Paul Bettany), who died in Thanos at the end of the Infinite War. Purple died at hand. “.
Well, now Wanda is back on Disney + ‘WandaVision’, inexplicably reunited with Vision in a 1950s-style sitcom, featuring several recurring rarities and symbols. One of them is a sword insignia, appearing three times: once on a control panel at the end of episode 1; once in a crashed toy helicopter in the garden, and finally in the person of a mysterious beekeeper emerging from a sewer drain before Wanda rewinds and restarts the story in her living room.
While it’s unclear what’s going on, there are some defining features of the Wanda universe, especially the Sword Badge, which follows the actual MCU organization, although we haven’t seen it on screen. Here’s what you need to know about the Sword Badge and what it could mean for the future of the MCU.
What is SWORD?
Sentient World Observation and Response Department (SWORD) is a government agency that combats extraterrestrial threats and complements SHIELD’s national operations. If SHIELD is the FBI, then SWORD is the CIA, and by that, we expect: they deal with UFOs. Marvel recently got the live-action rights to SWORD (which is technically under the X-Men copyright umbrella), meaning it will likely play a bigger role in Marvel’s recent holdings.
And we’ve seen some SWORD before. In ‘Captain Marvel’ we are introduced to Monica Rambeau, as a child, who is a SWORD agent in the Marvel comics. In ‘Wandavision’ that character is being played by Teyonah Parris. So whatever game SWORD has going on in the 1950s Wanda reality, there is a known agent on the ground.
