WandaVision Theory: SWORD is The Real Threat

The inclusion of the WandaVision arc post the Endgame events have caused a major impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s narrative. Marvel Cinematic Universe has driven the plot to an exciting extent which in the coming future may connect multiple different storylines to one massive event. This time this event is supposed to be greater and far larger than the Endgame epilogue. Although the latest development in the most recent WandaVision arc has given rise to new speculation or theory and may cause a chain of events which may lead to an infinity war level event, where we might see the annihilation of some major superheroes. The new theory or speculation states that the Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) might be the new face of threat in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The creation of the mind of Joss Whedon reminds us of the reference that was made telling the readers that Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division (S.H.I.E.L.D) is like boy scouts when compared to Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D). This often led to many battles that ensued between the Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) and the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In the WandaVision arc, it is shown that the Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) in the absence of Tony Stark has gained access to the lifeless body of Vision, who at that time was the first attempt at amalgamating human conscience into a machine. The success story of the synthezoid that called himself Vision drew a lot of attention and changed the world of robotics in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The absence of Stark and no one knowing the whereabouts of a lot of characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe led to chaos and seeking this as an opportunity Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) took the opportunity to break Vision apart limb by limb as if slaughtering an animal.

During this process, Wanda is somehow made aware of the process and what is being done to Vision and decides to infiltrate the research facility of Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) and free Vision from the clutches of the organization. In another scene, we are shown that Hayward sends in a drone to attack Wanda inside her reality-altering drone, only for Wanda to destroy the drone and walk out dragging the drone behind her and directly talking to Hayward and warning him to back off. During this epic scene Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) armed with automatic assault rifles who were initially targeting Wanda with their laser light guided towards Wanda, suddenly turn and point the aim to Hayward, while Wanda walks back towards the dome.

Director Hayward’s scheme has been kept in the dark since the day we see Monica Rambeau, daughter of the founder of Sentient World Observation and Response Department (S.W.O.R.D) walk into the SWORD’s headquarters and demand to be placed back into action and that is when Director pulls a clause laid by her mother that anyone who suddenly resurfaces after a year of vanishing has to be kept on the lowest risk-based missions possible. But, sending her to the Westview site was one of the riskiest tasks to be given to any agent that could be given to any agent, especially when you have been given the reason of non-fitness for not sending you on missions about space missions.

Another issue that pertains in terms of Director Hayward, is that Monica Rambeau knew her mother’s vision of expanding the space department. The reason the first questions she asks is about the astronaut program was to know the headway they had gained with the space exploration, only to be shot down by the Director, exclaiming that they have shifted their focus towards artificial intelligence.

In terms of information, Director Hayward has been available or divulging information only on a need to know basis only and is following the same when it comes to dealing with the plans that he is trying to execute by framing Wanda as a terrorist and trying to get his hands on Vision to make headways in the sentinel program. Director Hayward’s focus on artificial intelligence hints at the arrival of the sentinels and also the implication of X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The arrival of X-Men along with the Wanda Vision arc may seem to expand the line of the cast in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and give a jumpstart to a completely new narrative.
