Sword (I). Chic Carter covers crime as a reporter but is disgusted because of the limitations of the law and his own slowness in getting the scoop on crime. So he takes the law into his own hands, fighting the bad guys and getting fresh scoops as the Sword (I). He has no superpowers but is good with a rapier. He appears in stories with titles like “The Legend of the Black Baron,” “The Hand of Biro,” and “The Gambling Syndicate of Tony Fancy.”
