Moon Knight: Cult Of Khonshu #1 - (Script)

RECAP: After "Shadowland", Marc Spector had started serving Khonshu again. He was married to Marlene, living happily with her in his mansion... while still serving the violent and hungry Khonshu. God of the Moon and vengeance. Eventually, Khonshu grew tired of Marlene's positive influence. Khonshu faked a prophecy to turn Moon Knight into a better warrior. The coming of the red moon. And while this coincided with the return of several of Moon Knight's prominent enemies, it was all a lie. Marc Spector had, against his will, become violent and abusive toward Marlene. He had pushed her away and out of his life, and he had no idea why. In fact, he had no idea it was happening at all. He had become Khonshu's puppet. On the night of the red moon, Moon Knight saw his enemies attack him, along with a horde of werewolves. His mansion burned in the process. Marc killed his enemies, and he thought he saw Marlene die in his arms. So he killed himself.

But this wasn't true either.

Amnesiac and alone, Moon Knight woke up in the alleys of urban New York City, Khonshu directly controlling him now. Preparing him. The truth of the red moon eventually came to Moon Knight after he killed Bastet, Goddess of the Moon, and Khonshu's former lover. Marc rejected Khonshu, and Marlene and his friends accepted him again. Khonshu had made himself visible to them, and they knew the evil that controlled Marc before was very real.

Weeks passed. What Khonshu was preparing Marc for exactly remained uncertain. But Bastet mentioned that others hated Khonshu. And they were coming.

Two new Moon Knights rose to take Marc's place. Steven Grant and Jake Lockley.

How long they've been hiding under Khonshu's wing is unknown.

In the mean time, The Punisher had fought supernatural forces that controlled the Ghost Rider, and only survived with the assistance of Khonshu and his Moon Knights. A life debt was made, and The Punisher reluctantly agreed. He now owes Khonshu a favor.

Toxin: Malice #1 - (Script)

RECAP: After losing their baby to a vengeance-obsessed villain, Patrick and Gina Mulligan were put through even worse samples of hell. Gina had bonded to half of the Toxin symbiote, becoming Malice. She was unstable, she saw her baby die right in front of her. She held his corpse. She saw his melted face. But she managed to keep herself together, venting her frustration and anguish by fighting as Malice. But then, a new enemy rose up and killed Patrick. Patrick saved Gina in his last act before dying. What remained of the Toxin symbiote bonded to Gina's half, and she became the new Toxin. In her mind, the symbiote was now her child. She strives to be the best "mommy" she can be.

Meanwhile, Jenna Cole has been bonded to the Scream symbiote for several, several weeks now. At first she was dedicated to killing Anti-Venom or making him suffer as much as possible for the deaths of her siblings, the Riot/Lasher/Agony/Phage symbiotes. But Jenna's hate for her abusive father has overridden the symbiote's desire for revenge so far. She's been on a city-wide manhunt for the man who drove her to drug abuse in the first place: "daddy."

Punisher: Final Boss #1 - (Script)

RECAP: In Dark Reign, The Hood brought back The Punisher's family briefly. Frank burned them right back to death. The Hood escaped.

Shortly after, a mysterious new enemy rose, and used an LMD (Life Model Decoy - basically an android) of The Hood to distract Frank. Frank killed the LMD, and confronted the new enemy: Slaughter. AKA, Stevie Goodwin. A long dead veteran, who almost survived the siege of Valley Forge with Frank, back when he was called Captain Castle in the war.

Frank logically made his next move after killing Slaughter, tracking down the underground LMD factory that Slaughter got his LMD from. The Overboss was the manager, and Frank took him out. In his last words, The Overboss revealed that there were others connected to him. The Underboss (who runs the multiple Bars With No Name), The BigBoss (who controls all the other bosses), and The LittleBoss (AKA, The Tinkerer). Frank decided to hunt down the rest. Over a few weeks, Frank has come closer and closer to the truth.

But thanks to Toxin and Malice, Punisher finally knows where Underboss's stronghold is.
