Moon Knight, a complicated character for Marvel
This character named Moon knight, or Moon Knight in its English translation, it was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin. His first appearance was in the comic “Werewolf by Night” No. 32 in 1975.
Marc spector is the character behind the Moon Knight. After carving out a career as a great boxer, US Marine and mercenary, on one of his missions through Egypt with his partner “Frenchie” they both come across an archaeological excavation. Among the excavation team are Dr. Peter Alraune and his daughter Marlene, who will later become his beloved.
This excavation had uncovered an ancient temple replete with artifacts from the egyptian god Khonshu. In an attempt to loot this excavation, Bushman kills Dr. Alraune. Spector challenges Bushman to a fight to avenge the death of the doctor, but he is defeated and left for dead. During the night, the Egyptians walking through the temple discover Spector and take him to their temple where the Khonshu brings it back to life and makes him the Moon Knight.
Moon Knight is one of the least known characters of users outside the world of Marvel comics and, in turn, one of the most fragile of their stories. After a childhood trauma, Spector suffers a Multiple personality disorder and create two other personalities: Steven Grant and Jake Lockley. Personalities that, after his success in Egypt and return to the United States as Moon Knight, he will use to pose as a businessman and a taxi driver who will help him fulfill his role as a superhero.
However, Moon Knight’s main battle is with himself and his multiple personalities. All of them fight to gain control of their life, since each one has its own way of being and they move in totally different circles. This disorder causes the Spector to speak of himself many times in the third person.
The Moon Knight’s abilities
Marc Spector or Moon Knight lacks super powers as if they have other characters from the Marvel world. Still, thanks to one of his personalities, he is a expert commando, fighter and pilot. In its beginnings, it is helped by some moon shaped darts growing as weapons to fight his enemies, and his cape acts as protection and parachute.
Later, after winning a large fortune betting on the stock market, he bought a mansion as a base and several vehicles (including a helicopter) to fight crime.
Later in the story of this superhero, Spector abandons the rest of his personalities and sells the statue of Khonshu to an art gallery as a symbol of his abandonment of crime fighting. Still, it seems that the Egyptian god was not done with him and had him summoned to supply him with an arsenal of golden weapons designed by Hawkeye (when this character traveled to the past). Furthermore, from that moment the Moon Knight acquired a superhuman strength that increased and decreased with the phases of the moon.
As you can see, and as you already mentioned at the beginning of this article, this is a fairly complex character but from which Marvel can take advantage of a lot after announcing, in mid-2019, that he would take his story to TV format through a series on its Disney + content platform.
