Okay, that makes sense. I was kind worried there for a sec.
The original Swordsman's sword is probably in a box in Avengers Mansion's attic.

i think in an early issue of Young Avengers girl Hawkeye comes out dressed for combat holding swords and the others theorize those swords belong to the Swordsman.
Was it really that serious? I mean its just like Wrecker's enchanted crowbar, nothing came of it .I'm sure there were lots of wasted toys in the Avengers. I mean these were the same people that had Vision's remains in some box and they could only work on him when they had the time.
Cool. I bet thats a good fight.
I just don't think they see it as important in the grand scheme of things. Plus its trademarked, like Cap's Sheild, Thor's Hammer etc. Whoever uses it would almost have to be that legacy character instead of doing something with it that could be new and interesting. Like Luke cage with Wrecker's crowbar would've been cool or maybe Echo taking up Swordsman missing sword.
Haven't read many avengers titles, would New Avengers omnibus by Bendis be worth reading
The "Ultron Unlimited" by Busiek may be your cup of tea.
