Disney has released a new sweater from the WandaVision merchandise line that may hint at Monica Rambeau’s superhero future in the MCU.
WandaVision brought the Scarlet Witch, the Vision, agent Jimmy Woo and even Darcy Lewis back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On top of that, the series also featured the return of Monica Rambeau, who debuted as a child in 2019’s Captain Marvel. Now, Monica is a grown adult, and she is working as an agent for the Sentient Weapons Observation Response Division agency. Monica is a crucial character who stands on the other side of Westview’s distorted reality, and she has made it clear that she is an ally of Wanda.

In the pages of Marvel Comics, Monica becomes a superhero in her own right, adopting several monikers once she gains special abilities. And now, thanks to the release of new WandaVision merchandise, it appears the character will follow suit in the MCU.
Once Monica got special abilities in the comics, she first became Captain Marvel, after the original Mar-Vell. Later on, she would change alter egos to become Photon, Pulsar and, most recently, Spectrum. What never changed, however, was the basis of her superhero costume. Indeed, Monica’s known to have an outfit that is primarily black and white in design. The suit itself has changed over the years, but the color scheme hasn’t.
Now that WandaVision has passed its halfway point, more and more merchandise based on the series is hitting store shelves. As revealed by The Wrap, Disney has released a new sweater from the series that most assuredly points to Monica’s superhero future. The official WandaVision sweater is entirely black and white, and it features a S.W.O.R.D. logo at its center. Of course, licensed merchandise can sometimes be disconnected from its source material, but this specific pullover almost looks like a prop replica.
While this particular sweater has yet to appear on WandaVision, Monica can be seen wearing something almost identical to it in one of the series’ posters. This likely means that, in the next four episodes, Monica will sport this S.W.O.R.D.-branded sweater — and that, in and of itself, is an indication that she may become a superhero in the series.
After all, WandaVision has potentially already given the character superpowers. After she was cast out of Wanda’s reality, Monica is given a medical checkup in “On a Very Special Episode…,” and although the results are still a mystery, there seems to be something wholly different about her. Moreover, the series made a point to once again show that her mother Maria Rambeau‘s callsign in the Air Force was “Photon,” which may indicate the superhero moniker Monica will choose in the MCU.
Written by Jac Schaeffer and directed by Matt Shakman, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau and Kathryn Hahn as Agnes. New episodes air Fridays on Disney+.
