    Power Man #19 Jun 1974
    "Call Him...Cottonmouth!"
    Coming home after witnessing the poisoning death of his informant, Flea, Luke Cage finds a package waiting for him.
    What's inside are two poisonous snakes, which Cage easily defeats.
    Cage is then visited by two strong men under the employ of Cottonmouth: Mike and Ike.

    After a brief scuffle, Luke beats them both and threatens them with the snakes unless they tell him everything he wants to know.

    This leads him to Cottonmouth himself, the boss of a massive heroin ring who was the source of the heroin that originally got Luke Cage framed.
    Cottonmouth believes he has found a kindred spirit in Luke Cage
    and offers him a position in his organization considering that Luke passed his "tests".
    Luke, figuring he can get close to Cottonmouth in order to shut down the organization, agrees to join.
    However, Cottonmouth's right hand man Mr. Slick, doesn't trust Luke and suggests a test of loyalty is in order.

    Cottonmouth agrees and sends Luke to steal a heroin shipment from the rival crime boss Morgan.
    Luke manages to break into Morgan's operations and find the stash of heroin.
    Planning to mark it so that the police can use it as evidence,

    Luke is distracted enough for Morgan and his men to sneak up and get the drop on him.

    Good question! Is it possible?

    I believe not even the comicbook character Sean Dolan, the Squire of the comicbook character Dane Whitman,


    was able to control it... Or did the comicbook character Sean Dolan eventually learn to control the Ebony Blade in later issues published by marvel comics?

    Power Man #20 Aug 1974
    "How Like a Serpent's Tooth...!"
    Caught in the act of stealing heroin for Cottonmouth, Power Man finds himself in a fight with rival heroin dealer Morgan and his men.
    After beating his men, Luke manages to get away with the heroin by holding Morgan hostage so his other men cannot counterstrike against him.

    Dropped off in a random neighborhood, Luke keeps Morgan at gun point long enough to get away from his men, and get away with the heroin.

    While at the clinic, Claire tells Noah that she's leaving for a few days but doesn't tell Noah where she's going.
    Back at Cottonmouth's lair, Luke turns over the heroin.
    However, as Cottonmouth and his men marvel over Luke's victory, Luke turns the tables and attacks them all.

    During the fight, Mr. Slick is smashed out a window

    and falls to his death. When Luke battles Cottonmouth one-on-one,
    he demands that Cottonmouth turn over records that might prove his innocence.
    Laughing Cottonmouth tells Luke that he never put anything down on paper, and that Mr. Slick was his living record keeper.
    Furious that another method of clearing his name has been destroyed, Luke easily
    beats Cottonmouth, knocking him unconscious by smashing him through his desk.
    After defeating Cottonmouth, Luke calls the police so they can come and arrest Cottonmouth.

    Did Luke ever use his tiara as a weapon? I could have been fun?

    Did he ever use the chain?? I can see him doing real damage with that.

    Agreed. Looking at those images brings back sad memories. Hopefully someday, Victoria Bentley will be resurrected somehow.

    As for Sean Dolan (A.K.A. Bloodwraith), he was last seen during Busiek's run on Avengers (AFAIK).

    I think it is great the character will be used for the MCU by appearing in the 2020 Eternals movie, together with the comicbook character Sersi!

    I'm not sure if it's true (we hear so many things), but it seems as if the relationship between Dane and Sersi will be at the center of the Eternals movie. Let's see.

    Peace

    I really liked Bloodwraith (even with such a 90's name). That's another reason for me to like Dane with the Elfian get up. It's opens the window for a super-villans wielding the Ebony Blade and undef the curse's spell. IMHO, this is an opportunity for so much story potential.

    Peace

    Cage, Iron Fist, and Ant-Man have already made their live-action debuts. now Dane, Thena, and She-Hulk are up to bat. if they had already introduced Hammond, we'd have enough for a pretty cool Heroes for Hire standalone movie.

    The Ebony Blade shows up in Marvel Comics #1000, along with two different versions of the Black Knight (neither of which are Dane Whitman).
