Merlin (Marvel)(01 - Myraddin of Ruta)
Real Name: Myraddin of Ruta
Search for 'Merlin (Marvel)(01 - Myraddin of Ruta)' on Amazon


Bio:
Allegedly born as Myraddin of Ruta on a fragment of Atlantis called Ruta which did not sink until thousands of years after the Great Cataclysm, he came to Britain to establish worship activities. Famed as the court wizard of Camelot, his impressive acts include bartering his copy of the Ironbound Book of Skelos for the Starstone to make the Ebony Blade, create magical gemstones (later sought by Dazzler), imprisoning Chthon in Wundagore, and banishing Tyrannus to Subterranea. Merlin animated a suit of armor as the Black Knight before Sir Percy of Scandia became the original human Black Knight. At some point, Merlin left with the Black Knight to oppose Morgan Le Fay.

Then, a mutant Nordheimr Vanir with a Bloodstone fragment impersonated Merlin. The mutant Vanir summoned a young adept named Modred to serve as his apprentic, but Modred, hearing of the madness of the mutant Vanir, went for the Darkhold for power, only to be overcome by it and placed in suspended animation. Merlin defeated the mutant (with the help of Sersi), placing him in suspended animation, while contacting the Pope to gain help in dealing with the Darkhold. Merlin later imprisoned Morgan Le Fay in her castle. Merlin appears to have been imprisoned in a cave by another enemy, only able to appear by astral projection to the original Black Knight when he died. Merlin's subsequent activities remain unclear.
