Geeking the fuck out over everything coming out of Comic Con re Age of Ultron. Possible spoilers in the following, I obviously don’t know, but if you want to know absolute zero about the movie then you should probably scroll away now. It’s too late for me! Save yourselves!
The word sword comes from the Old English sweord, cognate to swert, "to wound, to cut".
The sword is symbolic of liberty and strength. In the Middle Ages, the sword was often used as a symbol of the word of God. The names given to many swords in mythology, literature, and history reflect the high prestige of the weapon and the wealth of the owner.
