Continuity?

Got my hands on "Vengeance of the Moon Knight, Vol. 1" today, and I just got up to Bushman's resurrection where he puts his face back on... but doesn't Marc have that? Or S.H.I.E.L.D, after confiscating his stuff? How did it get back to his grave!?!

I can't remember exactly what happened in the issue (whether it was given to him or he had it all along), but if S.H.I.E.L.D. had it then it could have become the property of H.A.M.M.E.R. during Osborn's reign, and then given to The Hood who was working with Osborn, who in turn may have given it to Bushman.

In the issue, he simply rises, asks for his face, and The Profile kicks the dirt and says, "I believe it's, uh, there. It must've been buried with you."

I noticed that too.  But never really thought too much to look into it.  I mean, I knew marc had the mask, cause he went all hannibal lecter and wore it that one time, but i couldnt remember what happened to it after that.

No matter who had it, I doubt they took the time to return it to Bushman's grave :)

Good point. Who would bring a torn-off face back to a dead man's grave? I would just throw it out if I didn't want it anymore.

Good question about the face, I'd like an explanation for that too.

Khonshu, in his faceless Bushman form, picked it up and wore it. Since this was obviously unreal, this is likely just a continuity error on the part of the writer.

Marlene saw Marc wearing the mask, so it was real :)

I know, but Khonshu picking it up probably was where reality blurred. So how it ended up in Bushman's grave is anyone's guess, but it's probably just a writer error.

Maybe he read The Bottom arc and not the rest, and just assumed that it would get buried with him.
