Whereas the primary few episodes of WandaVision led us to consider that S.W.O.R.D. has been conserving observe of Wanda, episode 5 confirms the truth that it’s Imaginative and prescient they’re really excited about. When Monica Rambeau begins to get in Director Tyler Hayward’s method after he considers Wanda a terrorist, he sends her and Jimmy Woo away; just for the pair to flee in an effort to discover out what’s really occurring. In episode six, Monica and Jimmy uncover that S.W.O.R.D. wasn’t attempting to decommission Imaginative and prescient like Hayward initially stated, they have been attempting to convey him again on-line. However what does S.W.O.R.D. truly need with him?
S.W.O.R.D., which was began by Maria Rambeau someday after the occasions of Captain Marvel, stands for Sentient World Commentary and Response Division. Initially, it was centered on extra-terrestrial threats and house exploration, however has since “shifted away from manned missions and refocused on robotics, nanotech, AI” and “sentient weapons,” as Hayward tells Monica in episode 4. In episode 5, we study that Wanda stole Imaginative and prescient’s physique from S.W.O.R.D. 9 days earlier than the occasions of WandaVision, with S.W.O.R.D. having taken the synthezoid aside which was strictly in opposition to Imaginative and prescient’s needs to not be used as a weapon.
The concept S.W.O.R.D. is working to convey Imaginative and prescient again on-line with out the thoughts stone follows the “Imaginative and prescient Quest” story arc within the Marvel Comics. Within the comics, reasonably than being dropped at life by the thoughts stone, Imaginative and prescient was initially dropped at life by Ultron utilizing a superhero named Surprise Man’s mind patterns. After Imaginative and prescient’s loss of life, Hank Pym was capable of convey him again to life with out Surprise Man, who refused to let his mind patterns be copied as soon as once more. Whereas Imaginative and prescient was restored, he now functioned on pure logic and now not felt human emotion. This was represented by his new all-white shade scheme and the actual fact he now not felt something for Scarlet Witch.
Then, there’s the query of whether or not or not Ultron could possibly be part of S.W.O.R.D.’s plan. Within the comics, he is been recognized for coming again and within the MCU, he actually did a quantity on all of our heroes. Technically, he’s additionally a sentient weapon and would fall beneath S.W.O.R.D.’s experience. There’s still a Mark Hamill-level cameo left for WandaVision, possibly it has one thing to do with the evil robotic voiced by James Spader? Granted, we’re in all probability method off base with this one however . . . you by no means know what is going on to occur within the Marvel Universe.
On WandaVision, Imaginative and prescient has already confirmed that he has no recollection of his life previous to WestView. It is also been proven that he can’t exist in his present kind outdoors of the Hex’s boundaries. If S.W.O.R.D. is ready to get their arms on Imaginative and prescient and recreate him with out feeling, he could possibly be their good sentient weapon. Even when they are not capable of get Imaginative and prescient again on-line, he could possibly be the important thing to extra environment friendly sentient weapons of their future, as Hayward commented that a lot of his employees “misplaced their nerve” after the snap. What we do know, is that we’ll miss the emotional and caring model of Imaginative and prescient if the “Imaginative and prescient Quest” arc is the place WandaVision is headed.
