This response was in another thread, where I had brought up there was a Black Knight from Atlas (which came before Marvel) in the 1950s  as well as a Black Knight comic book from a company called Toby Press.

and a guy I'm not at all familiar with,

Toby Press' Black Knight (Sir Robert, Earl of Denhope) - 1953
Among others called "The Black Knight", there seems to be
* a character from Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott (and adapted into DC comic books in the 1930s)

*  a young blacksmith who appeared in stories from Dell Comics' The Funnies in the early 1940s.

and in "modern times" (actually, 1940), there was a foe of Steel Sterling's called The Black Knight

And that doesn't even go into how many others named "The Black Knight" that have appeared in Marvel Comics (starting with the foe of Iron Man).

Marvel appear to have had three principal Black Knights (Dane Whitman, Nathan Garrett and Percy of Scandia) but also several others including Whitman's ancestor Eobar Garrington, a robot which teamed up with Skull the Slayer, and an assassin employed by the Vatican!
