The character was introduced in Captain America: Winter Soldier and quickly developed a beautiful friendship with Steve Rogers, while pretending to be his neighbor, actually serving as a disguised protector for the character. Soon, she proved her loyalty to him, participating in his battles and even committing a crime to defend him in Civil War. However, in the series, we see that Sharon has undergone a major change.
But what are the clues that may have generated such a theory?First, the name of the episode is Merchant of Power, the name of the mysterious villain, but who seems to have no presence in the episode. However, the episode presents the situation of Sharon, who did not enjoy the same forgiveness that Sam and Bucky received as Avengers. Knowing this, she embraced the role of outlaw and became a ‘merchant’ for stolen items. She lives well in Madripoor, in the upper city, with a lot of luxury.
Okay, Zemo refers to the Power Merchant with masculine pronouns (in the English version too), but he also admits that he never met the person in person. Then you ask: But Zemo has been in prison since the Civil War, how could she be the Merchant? So, maybe it is not the original, but someone who replaced it.
What gives more strength to the theory is that at the end of the episode, she talks to a driver and informs that she has some problems to solve. Before that, we see that she has a very unusual way of dealing with criminals, using brute force and very violent, disproportionate acts, without hesitation or regret.
And then, we have the second question: And why is she taking the guys to see Dr. Nagel? So, we have to realize that it is a way of ‘burning files’, since she could imagine that the result would be that and also to increase the value of the samples that she already has.
Anyway, a possible introduction to Sharon as a villain would bring a fascinating and interesting twist. This would give more depth to the character and also a big impact for Sam and Bucky, who would realize that you can’t trust everyone and that you can’t leave anyone behind. After all, Sharon only hit rock bottom because she was forgotten by her former allies.
