Moon Knight comic book genesis
The series was announced in August 2019, with She-Hulk e Ms. Marvel which will arrive soon on Disney +. Moon Knight was born cartoonistically in a hot August 47 years ago by the authors Doug Moench e Don Perlin: son of a rabbi, Marc Spector he becomes first a heavyweight boxer, then a United States Marine, finally a mercenary.
Marc joins together with French pilot Jean-Paul DuChamp a group of mercenaries led by Raoul Bushman in Egypt: they end up in a large archaeological excavation where they discover a temple devoted to the Egyptian god of the moon, Khonshu, and in an attempt to loot, Bushman kills Dr. Peter Alraune, head of research. Spector wants to avenge Alraune in a fight with Bushman, but fails and is abandoned dying in the desert.
The Egyptians who worship the ancient gods bring him to the temple, but his heart stops beating when he is in the presence of the statue of Khonshu: the divinity appears to him in a vision, promising him a new life in exchange for representing his alter-ego on Earth. With this transformation he faces Bushman again, beating him.
So he decides to create a silver colored costume, like the shroud of divinity, and with the name of Moon Knight (or “Khonshu’s Fist”) fights criminals once back in America. Also, in his mind they live three different personalities (that of Spector, that of Steven Grant, a billionaire who belongs to the New York high society and that of Jake Lockley, a taxi driver who works at night) and over the years various writers have played with the idea that Spector is not at all a servant of Khonshu, but that the deity may be the fruit of his imagination or even one fourth personality, the most balanced one.
