Perry Chase was the son of the owner and publisher of The Daily Express, a newspaper covering a major metropolitan area. Perry was assigned to the society page, but desperately wanted to be a serious reporter and begged his father for a chance. However, his father told him to continue to cover reporting on high society's doings because only real men can be reporters and his seemingly wimpy and unintelligent son was not a real man. Little did his father know that his son was in fact the Press Guardian, defender of the first amendment and a crime fighter.
Later, Perry obtained a new secretary named Cynthia Blake, who became a constant companion on many of his assignments for the society page and more importantly on his adventures as the Press Guardian.
One of the greatest foes that the Press Guardian ever dealt with was the Claw.
