Should Marlene get costumed up?

#1 Posted by Danial79 (2352 posts) - - Show Bio

I've been reading a lot of Marc Spector: Moon Knight lately, and in it, Marlene does quite a bit of ass-kicking herself, which got me thinking: Should she get a costume? I mean, she's fighting side-by-side with Moon Knight, but her identity is out there for all the bad guys to see. Would she suit being a female Moon Knight? Could she have her own different costume? What do you think? I think it would be cool to see them as a duo, kind of like an unpowered Sue & Reed.

Hell yeah she should. I think she should have her own costume, not sure what motif she should use. She kicked A lot of ass in that original Doug Moench run as well.

She'd be one sexy Moon avatar!

That's one of the reasons why i like Marc Spector: moon knight it's a shame how Marlene has just become a love-interest that can't defend herself. To answer your question she has skill but I don't think she has enough to survive the hero game.

I'm sure Marc could train her if he really wanted to :)

@Danial79: Hmm I don't think Marc should train I think she needs a new teacher besides it'd make good character development to see her trust someone who isn't associated with Marc maybe Silver Sable or maybe she could pay Elektra (unlikely I know) or maybe an Avenger could take some time off.

That would be great if she costumed up since it would add a new dynamic to Moon Knight. *Must think of moon themed name*

Marvel really could push Marc and Marlene to be married and that could add a new a dynamic to Moon Knight like what it did to Spider-Man. Having them both fight crime, since they don't have powers would make the Moon Knight series more interesting. Having a superhero couple fighting together is pretty uncommon in the Marvel Universe so that alone could draw in interest. Apparently Marvel doesn't listen to us fans so it'll never happen.

She should stay in the kitchen looking cute where she belongs.

That what I was thinking. It'd be something new and interesting.

As for Luna, I think that'd be a cool name for her. Although there already is a Luna in the Marvel U.

@Danial79: Wikipedia is the answer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_deity

It has a whole list of moon deities.

Strange that Khonsu is not in the list.

@Danial79: I found a page on Khonsu himself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khonsu

I can see why VOTMK had Khonsu look like a bird now in that arc. It makes a lot more sense and I think I remember seeing that temple in the early Moon Knight comics but I can't remember.
