West Coast super-group formed in 1984. Unlike other teams, the group’s funding came primarily from private donations. While the group enjoyed huge merchandising success (including a Saturday morning cartoon show), most of the profits were siphoned off by the small army of managers, image consultants, and lawyers employed by individual members of the team. It eventually became apparent that most of the Knights were less interested in crime-fighting than furthering their show business careers. Frustrated, MidKnight pulled funding from the group in 1992 and the team parted ways.
