Marvel's Helmut Zemo is exceptionally adept in swordsmanship; it is one of his prominent characteristics in the comics and animations. However, it is never confirmed whether his MCU counterpart shares this particular skill; despite the MCU concept arts depicting him wielding a sword,[1] The Falcon and the Winter Soldier credit scene showing an illustration of a sword in his color,[2] and Marvel Future Fight game releasing his TFATWS skin with a sword.[3]

Fandom

Give Zemo a Sword

Many fans are very enthusiastic about the idea of MCU Zemo getting his sword. Some took a fancy to having Zemo’s sword fighting style be inspired by traditional Georgian folk dance.[4] When the announcement of Thunderbolts movie surfaced with Zemo as one of the potential members, the fans demanded Marvel to give him his sword.

The Sword's Name

The discussion on naming the sword was first recorded on a discord server in August 2022. No consensus reached on the name, but few of the suggestions were "Buran" [from Russian, Буран; lit. 'snowstorm', 'winter storm'], referring to the most popular Zemo ship - WinterBaron; “Yatagan” the name of ottoman sabre used in Balkans, which would fit MCU Zemo's Sokovian background; and "Szczerbiec", fancy historical Polish sword used to coronate kings. Couple of crack options were also suggested.[9]
