The man known as Slate was a Nazi spy who was active during World War II. In December of 1943 he joined the crew of an American freight ship for the purposes of marking it with luminescent paint so that it could be easily seen by a wolf pack of Nazi U-boats. As Slate was carrying out his task he was discovered by some of his fellow sailors and murdered them.

Unfortunately for Slate, the Angel was aboard the ship returning home to the United States after a visit in England. The hero became suspicious of Slate after finding similar knives as those used by the killer in his bunk. Going to confront Slate he caught the spy red-handed smashing bottles of luminescent paint along the side of the ship. After a brief struggle, the Angel knocked out Slate, learned of the plot and gave the information to the captain.

With the location of the Nazi fleet identified, the convoy of the freighter was able to destroy them before they could cause a threat.[1]

Slate's subsequent fate is unknown.
