New Moon Knight Series by Bendis & Maleev

"All the Avengers you'll ever need."

MOON KNIGHT!! Do I have to say more? A new Moon Knight series by Bendis and Maleev? Is that still not enough to grab your attention? How about this new teaser image? 

I may have mentioned once or twenty-eight times that I love Moon Knight. I also love that Bendis will be writing this. What I don't love is how every Moon Knight series starts out strong and then fizzles out. I need my monthly fix of Moon Knight. Let's hope this one lasts. And it's coming in May, just in time for my birthday. Thanks Marvel! 
 
With the different versions of Moon Knight we've had, where do you want him to go in this series? Should he stick with the Avengers or go back to his solo butt-kicking adventures?

Solo butt kicking.  
 
He's barely uttered a single line in Secret Avengers. 
 
I'll definitely pick this up.

captain spider-moon wolverine?
moon knight is cool but he was always more of a soloist.

Posted by InnerVenom123

He's totally reinventing him.
 
So this could SUCK HORRIBLY or be really good.

Moon Knight kicks ass. Its about time they had him stop standing around in the background of secrete avengers. 

Posted by InnerVenom123

I hated how he got drafted to Secret Avengers, did nothing, then kicked out of the team. What the heck was the point of that aside from exposure? (Rhetorical question - there was no other reason). 
 
Also how he got shafted in the Shadowland ending.

Posted by Jake Fury
@InnerVenom123:
He's still on the Secret Avengers. In the last issue he actually spoke!  
 
*GASP*

@Jake Fury: For real? I'm seriously thinking of dropping it. The arc we're on just has no interest to me.
Posted by Jake Fury
@InnerVenom123:
Yes, he spoke and actually got to do something!
Posted by InnerVenom123
@Jake Fury: Simply amazing.
 
I'll still be dropping it unless I hear of an amazing arc. This Shang-Chi stuff just doesn't hold my interest, lol.
Posted by Jake Fury
@InnerVenom123:
Yeah he's pretty boring. 
 
I do like John Steele though. He's badassery.

Wait a minute....
 
An arc in Secret Avengers DID interest you? How did you get through the Nova arc without banging your head against the desk? I like Brubaker and love Deodato, but that book is just dull, imo. 
 
Oh, and this book will suck. Bendis is incompetent and has no respect for mental ailments.

I hope what this teaser means is that Bendis will be implementing his take on Moon Knight in the Ultimate universe. Meaning, that he''ll be struggling with multiple personalities!

I read it because I love Steve and can't stand Bucky. Nova really had no place in the book and the first arc was pretty pointless.

Definitely looking forward to this one!! i loved vengeance of moon knight! and the cliffhanger at the end of shadowland freaked me out. i really hope they address that in this new series

I like you more and more each time you post lol 
 Now I'm really off.  Catchyalater =]
 
Here's hoping that I'm wrong and this book is decent. I do love Moon Knight.
Posted by Jake Fury

Bucky. UGH!!! Everytime I see him I feel like Charlie Brown when Lucy moves the football. 
 
See ya.
Posted by longbowhunter

I like Moon Knight, and Bendis and Maleev's Daredevil was incredible. I've got to at least give this a shot. I'm hoping this is a solo book even though I like Moony in Secret Avengers.
Posted by Midnight Monk

Moon Knight is awesome and one of my top ten favorite heros but Bendis....not so much

Posted by IrishX

Great to get an update on when this series kicks off. Can't wait...

Posted by Icemizer

With Bendis writing it, Moon Knight will spend whole issues having discussions with his multiple personalities and never leave his kitchen.

Posted by BlaqueSaber

What I'd like to see in the new Moon Knight series:
1.) Solo but kicking
2.) Careful use/implementation of the multiple personalities, always ensuring Marc is in control
3.) No more crazy
4.) His connection to "the night" & "the moon" become visceral almost as if he performs a transformation as he gets/uses his "power"
5.) Give him a defined area of the Marvel U to operate in, like a turf
6.) No sidekick

Posted by BlaqueSaber
@Icemizer:  That won't be a series I stick around to buy
Posted by Jake Fury
@BlaqueSaber:
I don't think he's got the multiple personalities anymore after Shadowland. He also doesn't get enhanced during a full moon anymore.
Posted by InnerVenom123
@FadeToBlackBolt: I actually liked the first arc... somewhat. Okay yeah, it was dull, and I read it for the Mars suit MK had. >_>

Too little, Too late. I quit after the second issue in the current arc. And Moon Knights more or less Furniture in that series. He's actually had more to do in his Deadpool SA appearance a few issues back.  
 
I hope he's solo in this comic. Take him back to his gritty roots. I mean don't make him a Punisher clone but, keep him edgy. Play up the mystical nature of his power and motivation. Show his multiple personalities and how that affects his relationships. Show his journey for redemption, his struggles to play by the "Big Cop's" good guy rules.  
 
I've been over Bendis since siege, and I agree that this could go either way, I'll cross my fingers and hope for the best. I pray he does nothing nearly as bad to Marc as he did to Sentry.

I would like his full moon powers to come back, AND get an upgrade.

@BlaqueSaber:  
Perfect list, bro.

agreed.

Too bad. Bendis is planning a complete overhaul of everything Moon Knight. I believe the words "complete reinvention" were used. 
 
That's the official way of saying, "I'm too lazy to research this character and write him correctly."

@Jake Fury:  Well then I'm 0/2!  I'd like to see the moon enhancement come back, but not the multiple personalities so much :)

-2 on the meh scale.

I think just making him a 1 tonner isn't enough. Make him get some other stuff, idk.

This series is gonna last 20 issues MAX. =P

Posted by shawn87

well i hope this series is good because i did not like his last solo series

Posted by Kid_Zombie

I like moonnight but at the same time i couldn't care less about him. hopefully this new series shines some much needed light on the character and make him a kick ass character. Bendis has been stretched thin IMO lately, so hopefully he brings his A game to this.

Posted by Mumbles

Moon Knight will get done right this time around...hudson was bad. Finch's art couldn't save his writing at all. 

Posted by Danial79

YAAAAYYYY. I've been waiting for this for soooooo long :D

Love this post Icemizer!!!  
 
I won't take Bendis' success away from him. And I have to admit that he has some real cool ideas. But I find him more of a general plotline creator than a specific dialogue writer. When it comes to panel-to-panel dialogue, I think he's pretty awful. I'll read a conversation between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers and it'll be exactly like a conversation between Peter Parker and Mary-Jane from Ultimate Spider-Man. He writes them all pretty much the same.  
 
Character 01: Yes! 
Character 02: No! 
Character 01: Yes! 
Character 02: No! 
Character 01: Uh-Huh! 
Character 02: Nuh-Uh! 
Character 01: You sure? 
Character 02: Yes, I am sure!
Character 01: Really? 
Character 02: Yes, really! 
Character 01: Okay! 
Character 02: Okay? 
Character 01: Okay! 
 
I guess this is why he bangs out so many monthly titles each time. He has to cut something from what a normal and focused writer would spend time and energy on in a book. He goes for quantity, not quality.
 
As for Moon Knight, he's among the many lower-level superheroes who makes the Marvel Universe that much more enjoyable. He and a lot of other unsung heroes are the reason why Marvel has so much depth in their pool of characters.

Another Bendis production? sign me up! its like he knows what I want to read, I enjoyed his Ultimate Moonknight briefly during Ultimate Spderman I'm sure he'll do him justice in this as well.

Posted by KRYPTON

Awesome

Posted by umbrafeline

whats this like his 3rd series?
Posted by Gambit1024

Just what we need. Another great character for Bendis to destroy.
Posted by obscurefan

Honestly I was getting sick of how many Moon Knight series there have been since each of them have failed fairly quickly.... HOWEVER, I do think that Bendis does fantastic Noir stories, and because of that I think he's the perfect guy to do this and I am now super excited about this.

Posted by SirSparkington

YES! I love Moon Knight and it's great to see him get his own series (again). Hopefully this doesn't fizzle out. So, I guess he won't be a secret Avenger anymore? It's not he has done with them.

@umbrafeline: 
 
Avengers - New Avengers - Ultimate Spider-Man - Criminal (Icon imprint) - and concistently writing mini-series after mini-series!!! Bendis is everywhere!!!
Posted by Bearded Justice

not crazy about that pic, but i do like that his armor is gone. 
 
im a huge Moon Knight fan, and I'll buy this series even if it's terrible, which i hope it isn't, but you never know 
 
I'm not entirely familiar with this Bendis guy, so I dont really know what to expect 
but i want MK out there by himself and kicking butt 
I dont have a problem with Frenchie, but I prefer MK to be mostly alone 
I thought it was cool when he was killing people, but I guess it doesnt really matter what he does

Just like Wanda, Simon, Carol and Jan! 
 
 
Has his multiple personalities gotten worse, since he thinks he is Avenger man! 
 
I mean he has Wolverine claws, a spidey glove and he is surfing on Cap's Shield
