Knights of Pendragon
Base of Operations:
First Appearance: Knights of Pendragon; Overkill (Marvel U.K.)
History: The Knights of Pendragon are a group of men and women imbued with superhuman powers by the Green Knight, a protective nature spirit that watches over the world (and in particular the U.K.). The Green Knight charges these people with the mission of protecting the world from any threat that might harm it. In some cases, someone might be imbued with the "Pendragon spirit" for only a short time, while another individual might be empowered longer.
The earliest recorded people so chosen were King Arthur and his Round Table (hence the name Knights of Pendragon), while members of the latest incarnation have included Captain Britain, police officer Dai Thomas, Union Jack III, World War I hero Albion, Adam Crown (a youth reputed to be the reincarnation of King Arthur), former Mys-Tech operative Francesca Grace, reporters Kate McCellan and Breeze James, Ben Gallagher, Iron Man and Jim Rhodes, Stark Industries robot Gawain, and Victoria Bentley, friend of the Black Knight. Most Pendragons gain superhuman strength and endurance, as well as some fighting skills.
