Shining Knight (01 - Sir Justin)
Real Name: Sir Justin Arthur
Search for 'Shining Knight (01 - Sir Justin)' on Amazon


Powers:
Expert with an enchanted sword that can cut through any object or matter; rides on winged horse "Victory".

Bio:
Sir Justin, a member of the Knights of the Round Table in King Arthur's Court who was given by the wizard Merlin a magical suit of armor and sword, as well as a winged horse named Victory. During one of his adventures in Arthurian England, he became trapped in an avalanche and was buried under several feet of snow and ice, freezing him in suspended animation. He thawed out in the 1940s and fought crime using skills he gained as a knight, and took on the civilian alias of Justin Arthur. During his career as a superhero, he met a boy who looked up to him and vowed to be his sidekick, taking the name Squire.

Shining Knight soon joined the superhero groups the Seven Soldiers of Victory and the All-Star Squadron, as well as serving as personal bodyguard to Sir Winston Churchill during World War II.

Justin had a relationship with the second Firebrand, who was apparently killed by the Dragon King. After this, Justin was amnesiac for quite some time until his memories returned in Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.. He rejoined with the remainder of the Seven Soldiers and got his revenge on the Dragon King. His appearances have been sporadic since then, but he has been seen as a member of the JSA Reserves.
