A member of King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table, Sir Justin was chosen to challenge an ogre in the Northland.
On his journey Sir Justin encountered bandits in the Forest Perilous. In pursuit of the bandits he accidentally stabbed a tree with his lance releasing the magically imprisoned Merlin. Grateful the wizard transformed Sir Justin's armaments and steed.
Continuing his quest, Sir Justin mortally wounded the ogre, but with its dying breath the monster caused an avalanche, burying Sir Justin and his steed casting them into suspended animation.
When the mountain side melted and crashed into the sea, Sir Justin was discovered incased in ice floating off the New England coast by a museum curator. Recovered and given a new identity Sir Justin continued his fight for justice in the modern world as the Shining Knight.
