For a long time Moon Knight was described as Marvel's version of Batman, something I never bought into. He's way cooler. I mean Moon Knight's a guy with paranoid schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorder that cuts his greatest enemy's face off! Sometimes he's had powers depending on the phase of the moon and other times he's had no powers. Is he the avatar of vengeance or just a mercenary that hears voices? Who knows! I don't know! And sure, make fun of the white costume at night. But he says it best himself when he tells you he wears the white so that they know he's coming. So maybe he's got a bit of a death wish, too. Let's face it, you'd have to be crazy to be a super hero anyway, right?
