Forged as a counterpart to Excalibur, the Ebony Blade is a mystical sword that gives its wielder great power but comes with a terrible curse. According to the symbiote god Knull, the Ebony Blade is a symbiotic weapon with the potential to destroy worlds, and its true power is beyond the ability of mortals to comprehend or unleash.
Knull explains that the Ebony Blade is powerless in the hands of the pure of heart. Dane wasn’t chosen because of his capacity for good, it was for his willingness to do evil with the blade.
Mjolnir is the enchanted weapon famously carried by Thor. Forged by Eitri and the Dwarves of Nidavellir in the heart of a dying star. With the power of the God Tempest imbued in the Uru that Mjolnir was crafted from. Its power, thanks to Odin’s enchantments, can only be wielded by those who are deemed “worthy.”
With the origins of these weapons, it looks like we are set to have a clash between opposites and two of the strongest superweapons in Marvel Comics. We will find out in just under a month when Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #3 hits stands on May 19th. Will Mjolnir meet it’s match?
