Avengers Spotlight #39 (1990)


If you’re a regular reader of this site, you know that anything with Black Knight gets short shrift.  I just hate this character.

To the credit of the creators of this single-issue tale, they do a good job at making him relevant.  He’s a swords-and-sorcery guy, and in this story he fights street criminals in Washington, DC, and gets in trouble with the cops for being a vigilante.  And because there’s ANOTHER armored guy running around town (Crusader, first seen in Thor #330), so there’s some mistaken identity in it.  It’s a misunderstood hero/fish out of water story.

Creators: Roy Thomas & Dann Thomas, Greg Capullo
Grade: C+.  The “plus” is for making a BK story that I actually didn’t hate reading.
