    In his home on quiet Howland Lane in Lakeside, Arthur Lake keeps the stone which holds Excalibur, King Arthur's magic blade, which Arthur found during a trip to England. Whenever saboteurs or criminals come to town, Harbor patrol officer Arthur Lake draws the blade. There is a "tremendous peal of thunder, a brilliant crash of lightning," and he becomes The Sword.

    When he does so, his friend Lance Larter is automatically transformed into Lancer, endowed with a sturdy lance and costume identical to that of The Sword. Neither man has any superpowers, but each uses his weapon expertly.
