Holy theological mix-up !


It would seem that the valiant Sir Richard Of Scandia (on the right) and his twin brother Sir Percy (who plays a wicked lute, on the left) differ slightly in their belief systems.  Taking into account the fact that The Black Knight – Comes the Darkness, Marvel’s most recent endeavour to revive one of their characters from classic chivalry, is set in the time of King Arthur, Sir Richard clearly is of the old Germanic polytheist school, whereas Sir Percy seems to have taken up the new Christian Religion.

Either this will in all probability lead to some hefty theological disputes at the family breakfast table, or writer Tom DeFalco got a little carried away.  Forsooth !
