Abigail Brand is a superheroine in the Marvel Universe and the commanding officer of S.W.O.R.D.


Half-mutant and half-alien, Abigail was trained as a secret agent and was put in charge of S.W.O.R.D., a offshoot of S.H.I.E.L.D. with a special focus on extra-terrestrial threats.


Agent of S.W.O.R.D.Edit

Abigail Brand's past remains largely unknown, save that she is the daughter of a human or mutant mother and an alien father.  It is not known when she learned this, but she has two superpowers.  She can produce a flame that covers her arm and can burn through metal and she has an unusually shaped tongue that allows her to speak languages unpronounceable by humans. Her career, military and otherwise, is unknown, though is likely looked upon positively by her superiors as she was appointed the head of the Sentient World Observation and Response Department or S.W.O.R.D., a sub-organization of the peacekeeping organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. that was created to safeguard against extra-terrestrial threats.
