The version of the Shining Knight seen in Grant Morisson’s fabulous Seven Soldiers of Victory meta-series. A mighty knight lass from a mystical age of man, wielding Excalibur.

The profile also comes with rather interesting material about the ancient history of DC’s New Earth.

As of April, 2017 this profile has had an overhaul, and received a squire in the form of gleaming, mounted M&M game stats.

A big, heavily illustrated article about rifles, shotguns, submachineguns, etc. in fiction. So that’s useful to have.

This content used to be presented in the same article as Weapons Locker – Modern firearms – Chapter #2 – Small Arms, part 1. But the article was getting too big and with too many photos for slow connections and less powerful devices, so it’s better to cleave it in two.

Recent additions:
— Large-bore air rifle
— Drum-fed shotgun
— Badass tommy gun
— Badass Mosin-Nagant
