Can someone explain Seth the Immortal to me?

Probably the most complicated of moon knight's villains. I read his page and it's confusing as all hell. I've never read any of the issues he was in so that's probably why I don't get it. I would have done this on Seth's page but, obviously, he doesn't get a lot of traffic.

help me out.

@GiantsizeManThing: You're right, it is confusing. I've only ever skim-read that part of MS:MK when I was checking character appearances a while ago, so I'm not sure about him either. All I remember was that Moon Knight and Frenchie were both his descendants or something, which would make them part demon. This aspect of his continuity has never been mentioned since, however :P

@Danial79: It might be interesting to see him reinvented as a Dr.Doom/Machiavelli type of villain.

There are plenty of Moon Knight rogues who could have been brought back (with a little updating) as decent villains, which is one of the things I didn't like about the new series. Why use an old Avengers villain?

@Danial79: Cause Bendis has a morbid fascination with all things avengers?

Its been a while since I've read that volume of Moon knight but the basic plot is that Seth is an immortal demon that want to rule the world is his demon army. Seth is Marcs ancestor and due to genetics also makes Marc part demon (it has been hinted at that how Marc keeps coming back from the dead). Frenchie also has a bloodline power, he is allowed to become any of his ancestors and the only person who could stop Seth, he is told this by Chloe (the maid that worked for Marc and dated Frenchie). She was basically a spy that worked for the Templar order or something like that. You can see why it has never been touched on again because it is confusing as hell.

@comkid100: It IS confusing, but anyway, thanks for the explanation.
