“Shifted away from manned missions and refocused on robotics, nanotech, A.I. Sentient Weapons, like it says on the door.”
“It also says ‘Observation and Response’ on that door, not ‘Creation.'”
“World’s not the same as you left it. Space is now full of unexpected threats.”
―Tyler Hayward and Monica Rambeau

The Sentient Weapon Observation and Response Division, better known by its acronym S.W.O.R.D., is an american extra-governmental intelligence agency, dedicated to protecting earth from both extraterrestrial being and extra-dimensional threats .



S.W.O.R.D. was founded by Maria Rambeau after 1995, under the United States Government, focusing on manned missions and extraterrestrial being operations. [ 1 ]

The Foster Theory

“This time, we’re using the S.H.I.E.L.D. astrophysical records, and we cross-reference them with the S.W.O.R.D. database.”
―Erik Selvig

In 2010, after Jane Foster formed the Foster Theory, in which she stated that a bridge that formed wormholes to early dimensions existed, S.W.O.R.D. granted Erik Selvig access to their databases, which he used to cross-reference astrophysical records provided by S.H.I.E.L.D. . [ 2 ]

Tyler Hayward ‘s Command

“We’re dismantling the most sophisticated, sentient weapon ever made.”
“But Vision’s not a weapon. You can’t do this.”
“In fact, it is our legal and ethical obligation.”
―Tyler Hayward and Wanda Maximoff

In 2020, Maria Rambeau succumbed to cancer and passed away. Tyler Hayward then became the Acting Director of S.W.O.R.D. and he began to redirect the agency ‘s resources to robotics, nanotechnology, and artificial news. [ 1 ] Hayward finally acquired Vision ’ second soundbox and issued an order to launch “ Project Cataract “, a stick out dedicated to finding a way to reactivate Vision. [ 3 ] In 2023, two weeks after the Blip, Wanda Maximoff arrived at the S.W.O.R.D. Headquarters, demanding that S.W.O.R.D. give her Vision ‘s body, so he could have a proper funeral. Hayward personally took Maximoff to the lab and showed her Vision ‘s body being dissected by S.W.O.R.D. scientists, noting that it was constitution ‘s legal and ethical debt instrument. Maximoff made her way to Vision ‘s body, while Hayward called off S.W.O.R.D. agents who attempted to stop her, before leaving the adeptness. [ 4 ]

“No one’s gonna care once I’ve eliminated Wanda Maximoff. They’ll believe that the Vision who emerges from the Westview rubble is the same one she illegally tried to bring back to life. They’ll thank me for recovering such a valuable asset.”
―Tyler Hayward to Jimmy Woo

soon after recovering from the Blip, Monica Rambeau returned to S.W.O.R.D. and Tyler Hayward assigned her to assist the FBI in an probe surrounding the mysterious disappearance of a Westview citizen who was in the Witness Protection Program. however, Rambeau ended up disappearing during the probe, so S.W.O.R.D. and the United States Air Force assembled a research base outside of Westview in answer. S.W.O.R.D. brought in Darcy Lewis, requesting her aid in the anomaly research, and she managed to tap into the fictional WandaVision platform, an illusion created by Wanda Maximoff which consumed the entire town and its citizens, including Rambeau.

S.W.O.R.D. ‘s attempts to research the anomaly closely by deploying a drone, establishing communication with Maximoff, and sending Franklin into the anomaly, soon proved to be abortive. however, Rambeau ended up being kicked out of the anomaly by Maximoff. [ 1 ], so she gave S.W.O.R.D. intel by recounting her experience inside the anomaly. Hayward then claimed Maximoff was the sole perpetrator of the Westview case, presenting repair footage of her stealing Vision ‘s cadaver from the S.W.O.R.D. Headquarters .
Concluding that the anomaly was transforming the nature of anything that enters it to suit the appropriate time period, S.W.O.R.D. deployed a drone made in the 1980s, and Hayward ordered Maximoff ‘s character assassination. however, Maximoff destroyed the drone and hauled it outside of the anomaly, demanding that S.W.O.R.D. leave her alone, before using her telekinesis to make S.W.O.R.D. agents turn their weapons towards Hayward. [ 3 ] In answer, Hayward issued an club to take Maximoff down by any means to free the town from her spell, even if S.W.O.R.D. had to kill her. Hayward besides ordered that Rambeau, Lewis, and Jimmy Woo be taken off of the foundation, after Rambeau suggested a peaceful overture. however, they were able to sneak second onto the base and access the S.W.O.R.D. database. later, S.W.O.R.D. detected that Vision had reached the surround of Westview and attempted to leave the anomaly, however, he started to break apart, since he was not able to exist outside of the anomaly. While Hayward and S.W.O.R.D. agents were observing the site, Maximoff used her powers to extend the anomaly, transforming the S.W.O.R.D. foundation and the agents into a circus. [ 5 ] Hayward then requested backup, established a new base, and started preparing S.W.O.R.D. for an invasion. [ 6 ] Eventually, Hayward ordered the energizing of White Vision, using a sample of Maximoff ‘s Chaos magic trick, and deployed him into the anomaly to kill her. [ 4 ] Planning on killing Maximoff and covering it up with a faithlessly narrative, Hayward ordered the detention of Woo, so the FBI would not interfere. While Maximoff was fighting against Agatha Harkness, and Vision was fighting White Vision, S.W.O.R.D. agents entered the anomaly which had been partially opened by Maximoff. however, S.W.O.R.D. agents were disarmed by Tommy and Billy Maximoff, so Hayward attempted to shoot them himself, only to be stopped by Rambeau and Lewis. Eventually, after Maximoff defeated Harkness and dissolved the anomaly, the FBI assumed authority at the scene, taking Hayward into hands. [ 7 ]
