Bendis's Moon Knight Already Forgotten?

#1 Edited by Recoil1985 (521 posts) - - Show Bio

X-Men Legacy 267: Moon Knight makes Rogue go crazy by touching her skin and making her absorb his mind. Iron Man says the following...

"Moon Knight has multiple personalities. He manages to keep them controlled -- barely -- through years of practice."

It looks like there's some hope that Moon Knight might not be coocoo for cocoa puffs for anymore.

Are you happy with this or were you a strong supporter of Bendis's take on Spector? Discussions shall be had!

@Recoil1985: Well, Rogue's inner monologues had Cap, Spider-Man and Wolverine's personalities babbling on... which makes less sense since didn't two of them "die" or some crap... so sadly not forgotten yet. Le sigh.

Oh fudge, you're right. I was still reading the issue when I typed this up :(

Still, Iron Man at least implies Spector can control the MPD, so that's at least a step in the right direction.

I don't mind either. I enjoyed Bendis' Moon Knight run, but thought it left a bit to be desired.

I don't see the similarity.

Punisher:

  • Slaughtered by Daken.
  • Reconstructed and brought back to life as Frankencastle.
  • Bloodstone returns him to his formerself.

Moon Knight:

  • What's up, ya'll? I think I'll get rid of a personality two.
  • For no reason whatsoever, I think I'm going to TURN UP THE CRAZY!

Punisher had huge changes, but there were at least reasons and explanations.

@foolkiller1: It never concluded, so I guess a stalemate.

Ah well, thanks anyway. But to stay on topic, I hope it is forgotten, and he did have his vengeance of the moon knight armor on.

There's no similarity in the stories.The similarity is in the attempt to disregard the arc because nobody liked it.

That's the good (and sometimes bad) thing about comics... ANYTHING can be retconned :)
