Black Knight – Origins & Powers

Kit Harington will star as Black Knight in the upcoming Marvel Movie, Eternals. So, who exactly is Black Knight?

Black Knight, also known as Dane Whitman, is most famous for being a member of The Avengers in the original Comic Book series from the 1960s. Whitman inherited his uncles’ castle and was unaware that his uncle was the villain known as the Black Knight until stumbling upon various notes and inventions.

After finding the Ebony Blade and passing a test, Whitman decided to use it to become a hero and use the name Black Knight for good rather than evil.

After assisting The Avengers against Kang the Conqueror, he became a trusted member of the group.

In terms of powers and abilities, Whitman is an excellent swordsman with powerful hand to hand combat. He also has various pieces of powerful equipment such as the Excalibur Sword, Power Lance Shaft, Neural Sword, Photon Shield, and the Ebony Blade.

Originally, The Black Knight held no superhuman powers, but further down the line, he does gain enhanced strength, speed, and other physical abilities. Whitman is also known for being an incredibly smart scientist who specialises in physics. It’s unclear exactly what powers the Black Knight will possess in the MCU movie, Eternals.
