Vigilante: And how about the Shining Knight here? Sir Justin, a genuine knight in armor from the days of King Arthur!
Shining Knight: Friend, I am no mare at auction.
Vigilante: [slaps Justin's horse] Hee-yah!
[Winged Victory spreads his wings and flies into the air. The crowd ooh's and aah's]

The Seven Soldiers
20 January 2009 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

This is one my favorite episodes of JLU. All the featured heroes have their roots in the Golden Age. The opening black and white sequence features Spy Smasher, a hero created at Fawcett Publications (along with Captain Marvel). The band of heroes substituting for Superman at the parade are Green Arrow, Stargirl, S.T.R.I.P.E., Vigilante and the Shining Knight and the two sent in as reinforcements are Speedy and the Crimson Avenger. This group is a modern incarnation of the Seven Soldiers of Victory, the second oldest assemblage of heroes in comics history, with Stargirl substituting for the Star-Spangled Kid and the modern incarnation of Stripesy. And the four kids who keep butting in are the Newsboy Legion: Big Words, Gabby, Scrapper and Tommy.
