Background

Adam Crown was a student of English history when the Lady of the Lake appeared to him in his shower. She told him that “It is time for the king to ride out once more for the sword of the new dawn.” With her guidance, Crown broke into the Museum of Pagan Antiquities and London and stole a “priceless Iron Age sword.” He took the sword to a nearby canal and hurled it in, at which point the Lady of the Lake’s hand lifted it (or another sword in its place) back above the surface.

Taking the blade in hand, Adam was eventually brought to Avalon, where the Lady informed him that he was the reincarnation of King Arthur and Adam received an infusion of powerful Pendragon magic from the Green Knight, making him stronger and more agile than before. Given that he was a typical guy beforehand, the transformation was not enough to make him superhuman – but he’s more capable than most.

Adam came to be a member of the Knights of Pendragon, a group of champions who each held part of the Pendragon power within them. Alongside such heroes as the Union Jack, Albion and Breeze, Adam proved his worth as a hero, eventually sacrificing himself in battle with the evil Red King, lord of the Bane. He has since appeared as a supporting character in a few stories set in England so apparently he was revived under unknown circumstances.

Adam was a favorite of mine from the old Marvel UK days and I think he could be a major player in a campaign set in or around the British Isles. Way back in the past I wrote a whole bunch of fanfiction stories based around the Knights of Pendragons and I used Adam a lot – as such, I retain a lot of fondness for him.
