Knights of Pendragon #10-11
Issue(s): Knights of Pendragon #10, Knights of Pendragon #11
We have another Baron Blood appearing in the Doctor Strange series, but the original Baron Blood is back, and he's dressing up people in Union Jack's original costume to make hunting them more fun.
Meanwhile, as was intimated last issue, Mys-Tech has a stake in Grace Lexley's Omni company, and they don't like her new green initiatives.
So she's kidnapped by Ormond Wychwood, who is also responsible for reviving Blood. It turns out that in addition to being a Mys-Tech exec, he's also mixed up with the Bane, and he's trying to revive the Red Lord with a ritual that requires Blood to kill people. Grace is to be the final victim...
...but when she can't beat Baron Blood, she allows the Bane forces that used to possess her to return.
And she suggests that Union Jack would make a better sacrifice, and Baron Blood obviously agrees. So Grace calls Union Jack to lure him to the trap. Union Jack doesn't bring the rest of the Knights of Pendragon, deciding that this is a personal matter.
Blood almost bites Union Jack...
...but it turns out that Grace was faking.
Union Jack stakes Baron Blood...
...and throws his body into the ritual pit. Blood's impure body foils the ritual. Wychwood manages to escape, though.
Pretty basic, but it's nice to see that Union Jack's history isn't forgotten.

Wychwood claims that he found Baron Blood's corpse and revived him. How is that possible? His body was burned and his ashes were scattered.
