Things you want in Warren Ellis' moon knight book

#1 Edited by foolkiller1 (229 posts) - - Show Bio

I want ellis to bring back the glory that was 80's moon knight, that really seems to be the quintessential moon knight that brought some really great stories and fantastic art. What about you? What do you want ellis to bring?

I want to see Crawley, Gena, and Ray make a meaningful return, and I definitely want Marlene and Frenchie back after their complete absence from Bendis' run. To me, "Moon Knight" is not just Marc, but his whole "team", and that's something I've felt has been missing for a while now.

Another thing I'd love is to see is some of his old enemies make a comeback. For instance, Morpheus and Stained Glass Scarlet haven't been seen since '98 (and even then, Scarlet's appearance was only in a dream-like scenario), and I think Ellis would be just the man to do it well. Stained Glass Scarlet, especially, would be a perfect fit for his new noir-esque take.

@danial79:

YES!! stained glass scarlet is one of my favorite things about the 80's moon knight. her origin is freaking amazing. you know warren ellis is a big time name to be taking on moon knight, I'm surprised how dead this board is.

side note: does anyone have the adi granov variant cover? it was solicited for march 2014. cant find it anywhere.

It could just be because it's the holidays. The internet in general is a lot quieter this time of year.

Face-ripping. The last few runs did not have enough of gory facial mutilation. That's what's missing!

In seriousness, I agree with everything said above, but knowing Ellis...he's probably gonna take this in a wildly different direction. Which is great and all, I have faith in Ellis, but...sigh, sometimes I miss the 2006 run. That was a great premise and start for a new volume.

Ah, that's probably what it is.

The glory. The power. Nice art. Good plot. Carbonadium suit.

Yeah, and less of that shizic thing. After all, everythin' can get old)

I'd like Ellis to sort out the messy and somewhat convoluted relationship Marc has with Khonshu. That and make him more formidable than what he's been portrayed sometimes in the past. I hate seeing him getting jobbered. It hurts me lol.

Aside from that stuff. I agree that Ellis should totally dig up all of MK's trippy villains for the series. Anything else? I like the suit look. So keep that. As for his Carbonadium armour? I think he should be busting that out for fighting really strong/durable/otherwise meta opponents to give him an edge. I think that would be the way forward. He is a 'knight' after all.

Here's a sneak peek of it, mate. Enjoy!
