Prince Charles reigned over an unspecified area in France during the 15th century. The region was plagued by the Black Duke, who captured the prince and overran his kingdom. J'onn J'onzz happened to travel through time to the year 1463, and hearing of the plight, set about rescuing the prince. Charles was still too weak from torture under the Black Duke's henchmen to rally his forces, so the Martian Manhunter posed as Charles while displaying unearthly powers to ward off predators present and future. However, J'onzz was vulnerable in Charles' form, and taken by surprise by the Black Duke. On hearing of J'onzz's capture, the prince girded himself for a final conflict while sending his loyal Captain Moray to liberate their Martian benefactor. Prince Charles and an army of common people brought low the Black Duke, who surrendered after the Martian Manhunter collapsed a bridge carrying his forces to battle.
