     Swordsman 

Swordsman

Real name: Jacques Duquesne
Team(s) served on: The Avengers


  • Cool Sword: His sword shoots out lightning, fire and laser beams.
  • Evil Mentor: Initially to Hawkeye. Seeing great potential in him, he and Trickshot trained the boy in blades and archery respectively, with Clint often being a secondary performer in the Swordsman's act.
  • French Jerk
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Saving Mantis by getting in the way of Kang's force-blast.
  • Knife Nut: Only when he loses his sword.
  • Love Redeems: When he join in the Avengers, he develop a crush on the Scarlet Witch. Ordered by Mandarin to lure the Avengers to a bomb, he feared she would be injured and tried to dismantle it.
  • Master Swordsman: He is a master of bladed weapons, most notably all forms of the sword.
  • The Mole: The Mandarin sent a faked message from Iron Man asking the Avengers to allow the Swordsman to join them. Although they suspected a trap, he was allowed to become a member.
  • Redemption Equals Death: A variant. The Swordsman has reformed&joined the team proper some time before this, but he was often somewhat ineffectual; it didn't help that he both got stuck in a wheelchair, and got sick. This comes to a head when Kang captures the rest of the team, only leaving Swordsman because he considered him 'useless'. (Hawkeye was spared as well, but only because he wasn't a member of the team at the time.) The two of them, after saving Vision, then invade Kang's base, with the Swordsman largely responsible for saving the rest of the group. And finally, in a final Heroic Sacrifice, he saves his love Mantis from Kang; by the time of his death, he had proved to both the team, to Mantis, and to himself, that he was truly a worthy Avenger after-all.
    • Back from the Dead: In the recent Dead Avengers miniseries. The Swordsman was one of a number of dead Avengers resurrected by the Chaos King, and apparently survived the end of the Chaos War, unlike several of the others in that group.
