What's in a name?

#1 Posted by Danial79 (2333 posts) - - Show Bio

Something just occurred to me today: With Khonshu no longer a part of Marc Spector's life, the name "Moon Knight" has become meaningless. The whole reason he used that moniker was that he was the Moon's knight, literally dealing vengeance in its name. Without that association, the name no longer has any relevance.

Pretty much.

But what sounds more awesome than Moon Knight?

Yeah. That's what I thought.

Khonshu will be back to haunt Marc and the name will retain its relevance! In Bendis we trust...

He could call himself Spi-Wolver-Cap-Man instead.

He still uses the Moon as a symbol or logo so the name is fine. Makes just as much sense for him to go by Moon Knight as it is for Batman to go by Batman.

It also still mentions him on the inside of the cover in each issue. "Marc Spector believes himself to have been resurrected by the ancient deity Khonshu..... Spector dons the mantle of Khonshu...."

@IrishX: Which is still true.

Sounds like the punchline to an 80's sitcom: "That's our Bendis" *crowd laughs* :)

@Danial79: I knew there was something missing in his stories. Audible laugh tracks.

He never strays away from khonshu for long an will always go back to being his avatar because its his destiny and khonshu we never forsake him. Plus Khonshu always been there in his time of trouble .
 You know  moon knight we go back to khonshu in time,  he made him.

Because this is the first time he's ever denied Khonshu.

I'm totally happy Marlene is off the grid. I couldn't stand her in the Shadowland: Shadowknight arc. I would much rather Jake (or are we calling him Marc now?) date Echo.

I think it's pretty safe to say that everyone hated Shadowland in general, but I honestly miss Marlene, Frenchie, and Crawley. I hope they at least make an appearance in this new series and aren't forgotten competely :(
