History: After being mistakenly accused of murder, crime reporter Chic Carter adopted the costumed identity of the Sword  to prove his innocence. Afterwards, as well as crimefighting as himself, he would occasionally become his masked alter ego, using his skill with a rapier to good effect.

Comments: Chic Carter first appeared in Smash Comics #1, but did not become the Sword until #24. Even after this, he usually adventured as himself, without putting on the Sword costume. As well as the first 24 issues of Smash Comics, he turned up in National Comics #33-47 and in Police Comics #1-18.
