Moon Knight is our latest Character of the Month, but what good is a character if they don't have an awesome rogues gallery to truly test them? That's why our latest Question of the Week asked you to reflect on the many terrible people Marc Spector has encountered over the years. Quite a few characters on the poll only have a limited number of appearances, but they definitely managed to leave an impact despite not having too much time to stick around. In the end, the majority decided to side with Moon Knight's most well-known enemy: Raoul Bushman!
Bushman is the most popular Moon Knight foe, so it's easy to understand why he took the lead over several lesser-known characters. He's had several encounters with the anti-hero, but it's worth noting that Moon Knight likely wouldn't exist if it wasn't for Bushman. If the evil guy never attacked Peter and Marlene Alraune, Spector never would have been viciously beaten and left to die in the desert. And, as we all know, that's how he eventually became the character we now know and love. Plus, Bushman's fights with Moon Knight in the first story of the 2006 run and VENGEANCE OF MOON KNIGHT are shockingly brutal.

Let's see what the community had to say about these villains.
"I had to vote for Bushman because lets face it he's Moon Knight, and Marc Spector's number one villain. He has been a constant and reoccurring thorn in his side. When it really comes down to it, he helped created Moon Knight in the first place, caused he greatest fall, and even helped rise him back up again. Not even death could cause Bushman to leave permanently.
Honorary mention for the Zapata brothers because I loved the down south story."
"Conquer Lord was the first villain that really pushed Moon Knight to the limit. He kidnapped his girlfriend and tried to feed her to the rats. After shooting the Mayor in Moon Knight's own House. He even challenged Moonie to a game of Life Sized Chess right before!"
"As for my choice I went with Morpheus. Moon Knight is a physical fighter so watching him dodge Morpheus and his "Ebon energy" is pretty cool. That and he's just an incredibly weird villain. I Think we might be seeing him next issue (#4) after reading the solicitation."
