WandaVision has changed something about S.W.O.R.D.

First, some backstory on the new organization, for casual fans: If you think of S.H.I.E.L.D. as being responsible for handling localized dangers on Earth, then S.W.O.R.D. is its intergalactic counterpart. The organization, whose name stands for “Sentient World Observation and Response Department,” is based in outer space and deals with extraterrestrial threats.

Now this could mean nothing (or it could mean everything), but a sharp-eyed Twitter user, @UpToTASK, noticed that according to WandaVision‘s marketing materials, the insignia for S.W.O.R.D. has changed the name in a slight but important way: in the MCU, it stands for “Sentient Weapon Observation Response Division.”

Now, it’s worth remembering that the MCU also changed the meaning behind S.H.I.E.L.D.’s acronym back in the first Iron Man film, for no particular reason. However, as far as S.W.O.R.D., the change from “World” to “Weapon” is a curious one,  because it suggests that S.W.O.R.D. may expand its reach in the future of the MCU. Instead of solely looking at potential alien risks, for instance, the agency could pay attention to superpowered individuals who can’t quite control their abilities (I.E., “sentient weapons”). Seeing as how WandaVision takes these characters through various time periods — and may very well introduce the MCU’s multiverse — it’s possible that S.W.O.R.D. wants to get on the scene specifically to figure out what’s going on with Scarlet Witch, especially if she’s threatening countless dimensions.

One thing’s abundantly clear: This won’t be the last time we see S.W.O.R.D.

With a Secret Invasion series coming to Disney+, there’s a good chance the organization comes into play to deal with some kind of looming alien threat. Luckily, we should get more answers as to how exactly S.W.O.R.D. will factor into the future of the MCU when WandaVision premieres.
