  • 1st appearance and origin of the third Black Knight, Dane Whitman in armor
  • [Kit Harrington cast as the Black Knight]
  • 1st appearance of Aragorn, the winged steed
  • πŸ’¬ Bry's Comics Analysis
  • With an established fan base from Game of Thrones and an action/romance role in the MCU, the Black Knight could be Marvel’s most prominent leading man appealing to a total demographic
  • Suspiciously, Marvel marketing has kept quiet on Kit Harrington which could mean big surprises onscreen and a lot more eyes on this book
  • If Avengers #57 (1st Vision) is a comparable key to predict the continued growth of Avengers #48, there is still $6k-$8k of growth potential in this issue

  • 1st appearance of Dane Whitman, becomes the third Black Knight
  • [Kit Harrington cast as Dane Whitman]
  • πŸ’¬ Bry's Comics Analysis
  • It can’t be understated how much the Black Knight could mean to the MCU without Captain America and Iron Man
  • Harrington has the right vibe for a virtuous but inexperienced hero to develop over time into something greater with audiences following his journey along the way
  • This Captain America-type path could mean this second most significant key of the character could experience massive gains as well

  • πŸ’¬ Bry's Comics Analysis
  • Incredibly scarce with only 90 unrestored graded copies, the highest being an 8.5 of which there are only two and haven't been listed for sale since 2008
  • The next highest grade, 7.0 sold in 2020 for $12,000 yet lower grades have not sold for increased amounts in later sales which could mean they're primed to level-up in dollars

  • First meeting of the original Black Knight, Sir Percy and Dane Whitman, the third Black Knight
  • Origin of the Black Knight, Sir Percy
  • Origin of the Ebony Blade and Ebony Dagger
  • πŸ’¬ Bry's Comics Analysis
  • In the likely event that the Black Knight stars in his own headlining film, the origins of his famed weapons and ancestry will probably play a part
  • This issue is also scarce with only 243 graded copies and any big sales in higher grades will have a massive trickle-down effect: Largely overlooked under the Marvel Super-Heroes title, this issue has big potential as collectors become more aware of its significance
