Another snippet of info on new Moon Knight ongoing.

I've got this little theory that though the impression is that Spector will be wearing his moon-themed three piece suit for this series. He may bust out his Carbonium armour/traditional look for particularly powerful opponents to level the playing field?

I dunno if this is going to happen (obviously) but this recent tweet here by Declan Shalvey suggests ( total maybe) that the armour/trad costume will be making an actual appearance (not just a pic on a bloggers computer screen in one panel, in the first issue) pretty soon. Anyway, here's the tweet -

Not a lot to go on I know but I'm thinking it's the armour. As apart from this tweet, we've all seen a couple of the variant covers. Spector is rocking his classic look. So it would be very strange if they were ditching the hood and cloak shtick completely?

Or we could be seeing a different costume entirely? A Moon-scuba suit? A Moon-space suit? (or would that be a Moon-moon suit?) A Moon-Mech? A Moon-Bat suit? (just kidding.) Or it could be following the non-superhero costume style of the Moon-three piece? Maybe Moon-track pants? Moon-pyjamas? A moon-bathrobe? Moon 50's dad??

Please don't get me wrong. I love the new business suit look.( Even though I can't tell if he's going give me a very convincing ad pitch. Tell me "greed is good!' Or murder me with an ax for getting a reservation at Dorsia). I'm just not sure if I want Moon Knight to have more motif-themed costumes than a Batman action figure line or Tony Stark's closet. I suppose it could work is it didn't go too far??

Anyway, please share your thoughts and speculations?

A new tweet feedin' up my carbonadium hopes/dreams. I'm pretty sure that this "what he looks like" is that armor: it has a lot os similarities with the old one, but brings in something new. Also, this could be exactly what's needed to take on heavy-hitters, I mean, that stuff is nearly unbreakable. You've got me intrigued on this one.

Moon-pyjamas? XD I'd like to have a couple of those.

@cyberwarrior:

Yeah, its gotta be the carbonadium armour he's wearing in that variant? If so, great. It's a bit like the armour from VotMK. Only without that stupid score though the moon insignia on his chest, It made him look like Cent Knight or something.

Anyway, I'm glad you agree. I would really like it. If the carb armour was kept and used when Moon Knight had to to take on someone pretty heavy, To me, it has a nice ring to it and we still get to see Moon Knight's original look. Which should always be kept in some way really as it's awesome.

Moon-pyjamas eh? Can't help you there but I did see this recently. It's only a concept unfortunately. Or I'd have all three without second thought.

I saw those too and was ready to send them all my money... until I read that they were only concept art :(

@danial79: That aspect really is sad, but at least we have a hope that this will come true!

I really came to like Detective Flint in the 2006 run and was happy to discover that he's been around (on and off) since 1981, essentially making him one of Moon Knight's primary allies. Most writers are probably scared to use him though due to his Gordon similarity.
