Aragorn is a winged horse ridden by Brunnhilde the Valkyrie and previously owned and ridden by Dr. Dane Whitman, the Black Knight. Whitman was the nephew of Professor Nathan Garrett, who had adopted the guise of the earlier, criminal Black Knight. In this role, Garrett had ridden a horse whom he had mutated using genetic engineering techniques that he had developed. The artificial mutations gave the horse the large feathered wings and other special adaptations which enabled him to fly. Garrett, dying from injuries he had suffered in battle, persuaded Whitman to vow to use the scientific discoveries he had used as the criminal Black Knight for good. Whitman decided to do so by becoming a new, heroic Black Knight. In pursuit of this goal, Whitman used Garrett's genetic techniques to mutate another horse, whom he named Aragorn, into a flying steed. When the new Black Knight left his own time for a temporary stay in the Twelfth Century A.D., he entrusted Aragorn to the care of Brunnhilde.
