In addition to being the greatest superhero in the Dan Delby Comics Universe, with fan after fan coming up to Dan Delby at his personal appearances, telling him of how Knight Cowl is their favorite of the characters he has created, Knight Cowl is easily the most popular character in the entire Dan Delby Comics Universe, bar none! Whether he is protecting the streets of New York City alone; alongside his girlfriend and crime fighting partner, Web Mistress; under the guidance of his mentor Lurking Moonlight; or as part of the superhero team, Hero Crew; Greg Brent is certain to take the fight to any and all wrongdoers, as the fan favorite superhero known as, Knight Cowl! 2
