Plot summary: Set months after S.H.I.E.L.D. was captured by the underground organization known as S.W.O.R.D., S.H.I.E.L.D. is faced with several new challenges. Coulson and May learn that the leader of S.W.O.R.D. is Abigail “Lola” Brand, an old rival of theirs during their first days as S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Fitz is paired up with a dangerous S.W.O.R.D. agent who moonlights as a world-class thief and has her own agenda separate from S.W.O.R.D.’s goals. Simmons learns that her family is involved in something sinister and it has something to do with the Roxxon Corporation. Daisy befriends a S.W.O.R.D. agent who is not from this world. Yo-Yo and Mack encounter a little girl whose reason for existence could change the world. And Robbie Reyes goes head to head with a priest who is hellbent on taking the Darkhold back and unleashing Dormammu’s wrath on the world.
Sentient World Observation and Response Department
It is a subdivision of SHIELD but is still independent of it and also super secretive.
They are allies with SHIELD, Avengers and X Men.
They were formed as a counter terrorism and intelligence agency to battle alien threats against Earth.
So this means in the MCU it must have formed after the battle of New York. (Possibly earlier when Earth discovered Thor)
Simmons has always been extra excited when dealing with alien goop (Pilot, FZZT etc.) and chasing down the facts about Skye’s miraculous cure. She must be on the train of thought that whatever was used can’t be of Earth origin.
I have a feeling that Agent Weaver is maybe in charge or at least a high ranking agent within it.
She would have recruited Simmons at the Academy.
Simmons was trying to contact her about the blood before she even knew Hydra was attacking. Weaver told her to meet up with her if she survived in a place only they knew.
Now this is an agency on the side of good but the agents are kept secret.
This wouldn’t go against Simmons’s moral views and so far she wouldn’t have had to lie about it. She is still technically a SHIELD agent. She was only ever directly asked about being Hydra. And that look to Fitz, we knew she wanted to say more.
Now one more interesting fact.
The creator of this agency within the comic universe.
Side note: I also think A.I.M. is back and were in the Fridge. They could have been the ones experimenting on the supers like Daniels. He said they made him more powerful.
So Pod 1 for season 5 is probably gonna be “Agents of S.W.O.R.D.”. Now, I’m just saying but you know what would make a great pod two?
Wonder Man, featuring special recurring star Nathan Fillion.
Since Nathan already had the cameo as Simon Williams from the deleted GotG scenes, adding him to AOS would be a great way to officially introduce the character and possibly hype up a Wonder Man show much like how season 4 hyped up a Ghost Rider show.
Because honestly, what are the chances of a Wonder Man movie being made?
I secrete them out of my body and then I can make anyone near me feel any way I want them to. It’s not something I like doing. It’s not something I enjoy. But I can do it, and I’m doing it now. He doesn’t kno what he’s feeling. He doesn’t know what to think. And you’re saying: what’s wrong with that? That sounds like the best super power ever. Well, because making someone feel something they don’t want to feel is about the least heroic thing you can do…
