“Moon Knight” Marvel Features New Superhero




Review by John Delia

Reaching down into their treasure trove of Marvel characters, Disney introduces Moon Knight. According to The Marvel Encyclopedia of characters, Moon Knight is a mercenary, Marc Spector, who is left for dead in the Egyptian desert. Carrying Spector to their temple, the Egyptians presented him to their god, who saved his life and gave him superpowers…page 199.

Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant in MOON KNIGHT from Marvel Studios

Developing the character, Marvel Studio begins their film by introducing Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac) as a museum worker who has an ordinary job of selling souvenirs to visitors. Treated like lowlife by his boss, his intelligence on all matters ancient Egyptian are driving him mad. At night his dreams are all about Marc Spector and take him to another world where he fights for his life against Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) with the aid of Khonshu (F. Murray Abraham).

The first season is made up of 6 episodes of about 45 minutes and is packed with action and drama that in some cases sidesteps the description in the Marvel Encyclopedia. But, that should not deter any superhero fans as the storyline puts the target audience in the middle of the excitement with cliffhangers at ends of chapters.
