The Knight is a legacy name used by super-hero vigilantes in England. The original was Percy Sheldrake, a nobleman inspired by Batman to become a member of the Club of Heroes. He had previously been a member of the Young Allies as Squire to the Shining Knight, eventually helping start the Global Guardians. His son Cyril Sheldrake became his sidekick and later successor, taking Beryl Hutchinson as his Squire. Cyril would go on to become involved with the Global Guardians, the Ultramarine Corps and Batman Incorporated. The Knight was created by Bill Finger and Dick Sprang, first appearing in Batman #62. (1950)
