Augustine du Lac (Earth-616) from Black Panther Vol 4 3 0001

Training at the Vatican


Augustine du Lac[1] is a British fervent Catholic, and descendant of Arthur's Round Table Lancelot.[3]

At some time, he was recruited by the Vatican for his legacy, and his spiritual and physical virtues, and was proposed to Klaw for his invasion of Wakanda, under the name of Black Knight and wielding the Ebony Blade, which was found by the Vatican, and riding a flying horse named Aragorn.[3]

Speech for the troops

Invading Wakanda

Banding with Klaw and his troops, Batroc, Rhino and the Nigandan Army, he questioned Klaw's motivation and faith, and made an inspirational speech before the assault.

Riding Aragorn, he then assaulted Wakanda Air Force Captain H'Rham as he was, along with Captain Ashei, heading to take down the rampaging Rhino. Destroying H'Rham's plane and forcing him to eject, he intended to slay the Wakandan pilot, only to get shot by him, making him fall from his horse, but he was saved by the flying horse, who caught him.[4]

He was then confronted by the Black Panther, who used a harpoon-magnet to drag him off his ride and attach him to T'Challa's flying scooter by using a magnet. He was forced to surrender, as the Panther threatened to have Aragorn taken down by the Wakandan Air Force.[5]

The crusader surrendered, letting the Ebony Blade fall down on Wakanda.[5]

The Ebony Blade was soon after found by Shuri, who used it against the Radioactive Man,[6] and later by T'Challa himself during his world trip.[7]

It was revealed that Augustine was in custody of the Wakandan Security Forces for interrogation. The Vatican's request for extradition was also denied, and that decision was announced to the United Nations.[8]

His current whereabouts are unknown.
