(Original Sins#2/1 (fb) - BTS) - Rebecca Stevens was a historian researching the Black Knights' heritage and the Ebony Blade. She met Dane Whitman at the opening of the Black Knight Museum and had a book published, Black Knight: Black Legacy. Some time later, Whitman had again fallen under the dark influence of the Ebony Blade and brutally assaulted a thief in the Savage Steel armor. Soon after, Stevens was near one the secrets-revealing eye bombs from the deceased Watcher which revealed to her Whitman's secret attack.

(Original Sins#2/1) - Stevens tracked down the now reclusive Whitman to an apartment to confront him about the addictive and destructive Blade, and what he had recently done under its influence. She pleaded with him to surrender the Blade to authorities, but he refused, turning her away.

It's suggested in Avengers World#10 that Captain America knew of Whitman's breakdown and hence did not seek to recruit him into the expanded Avengers roster. Was Captain America alerted by the concerned Stevens, or had he deduced the situation himself?

Rebecca mentions in Original Sins#2 that she met Dane at the opening of the Black Knight museum. Though it isn't explicitly said to be the opening, we see Dane visiting the museum in New Excalibur#10, and the way he is talking to someone there (Miss Sterling, who is either a Black Knight historian or in charge of the museum, given how she dresses and her knowledge of the exhibits and past Knights) comes across like it is his first time discussing the exhibit with her. Anyway, it might be worth noting that the opening may have been what we saw in New Excalibur#10, making Rebecca BTS there.
