Swordsman

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/2310795_swordsman.jpg

Alter Ego: Jacques Duquesne

Notable Aliases:

First Appearance: The Avengers Vol. 1 #19 (August, 1965)

Team Affiliations: The Avengers

Joined In: Avengers #20 (September, 1965)

Beginning his career as a circus performer where he helped train a young Hawkeye, Jacques Duquesne later became the costumed mercenary Swordsman. He joined the Avengers, at first for nefarious reasons, but soon resolved to become a true Avenger when he fell in love with Mantis.


  • Badass Mustache: Had a rather neat mustache. His Cotati successor had a goatee as well.
  • Cool Sword: His sword shoots out lightning, fire and laser beams.
  • Disappeared Dad: He didn't even know he had a daughter, Adelynn Duquesne who became Swordswoman.
  • 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: French and could be quite the jerk.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Saving Mantis by getting in the way of Kang's force-blast.
  • Knife Nut: Only when he loses his sword.
  • Legacy Character: Three people have taken the Swordsman codename; Philip Javert, Andreas Strucker and his Cotati template.
  • Love Redeems: When he joins in the Avengers, he develops a crush on 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.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His costume was purple and he was Hawkeye's mentor.
  • 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.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: His outfit lacked sleeves.
