Swoop Smith, also known as Swoop Storm, was a young American inventor who became a pilot at age 10 after successfully landing a passenger plane when its regular pilot died of a heart-attack mid-flight. He fought crime and Axis agents using his piloting skills. He also invented a number of flying vehicles which he flew himself. He was assisted by Winky, his under-appreciated yet unfailingly loyal best friend.

Swoop Smith was friends with Dickie Dean, a fellow kid inventor. While they never appeared together in a published story, Swoop did use one of Dickie's inventions in at least one adventure.
