The Hephaestus Sword is reportedly the deadliest weapon ever forged. The blade is so refined that even its vibrations produce a cutting edge. At some point, Deathstroke came into possession of it. After being hired by Lex Luthor to kill Batman, Deathstroke planned to use the sword to execute him in a trap set at the Tri-State Dam. Batman dodged his initial stroke and observed energy discharged from it cracked the floor. Batman tried to swing back up onto the walkway but Deathstroke sliced and the energy cut him across his back and severed his cape. Deathstroke then cut a column and collapsed the walkway. Batgirl and Robin intervened before Deathstroke could use the sword on Batman again. He struck a vat and triggered an explosion to cover his escape but Batman knocked him out with a fire extinguisher.
