Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #3

Dane Whitman embarks on a quest with Elsa Bloodstone and Jackie Chopra to find the other Ebony items. With the Ebony Dagger and Ebony Shield already in Mordred's possession, it's a race to see who will be the first to claim the Ebony Chalice.

The search leads to faceoff in the Wastelands between our heroes and Modred and his minions. Jacike also learns some history about Sir Percy, the amount of power he wielded, and how it nearly destroyed him. We're given a flashback to a Black Knight and Thor encounter where not only does Percy best the God of Thunder but unleashes his rage on all of the Odinson's companions. The power boost we're seeing for the character here suggests the MCU may have plans to make Black Knight their new heavy-hitter.

Although defeated, Mordred takes comfort in that the knowledge Whitman may get from the Chalice is just as likely to drive him mad opening the door for the remaining items to fall into the villain's possession.
