“Adversity introduces a man to himself.”
The Ace of Swords is representative of an incredible will to conquer coupled with an impressive intellect. Cutting through the byproducts of the overwrought mind, the Ace of Swords draws himself up and seizes victory. However, this victor wins so dutifully he is unable to acknowledge the traditional sentimentality that the word “glory” often calls to mind. He is the “I” in TEAM, who often celebrates his victories alone. As far as he is concerned, there is no wrong way to be right.
