Moon Knight is the recent addition to the MCU anti-hero roster. It was not a huge success when Marvel initiated Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with WandaVision. The only show that lived up to the expectations of fans was Loki. But with this unexpected entry of Moon Knight, fans were left awe-struck. Moon Knight’s character in the comics has always been highly liked and admired by the readers, and when the show launched on Disney+ on March 30, 2022, everyone was hyped. In this article, we will tell Interesting facts about Moon Knight.
This live-action show features Oscar Isaac, who plays the role of Steven Grant, but that’s not it. Steven is just another common man who works at a museum gift shop. But Steven appears to have a dissociative identity disorder that is out of his control. He is also a puppet to an Egyptian moon God named Khonshu, who resides within his body and will. The show feeds us an amazing supernatural journey of Steven Grant, which takes place in and under the gritty lands of Egypt.
Steven Grant’s alter ego is an army veteran and a millionaire, Marc Spectre. Oscar Isaac has done a very impressive role in playing the double role. There is also a scene where two of Moon Knight’s alter egos confront each other, performed brilliantly by the actor.
Here are Some Interesting Facts about Moon Knight
1. Dissociative Identity Disorder
People who suffer from the disorder mentioned above may find the portrayal of the sickness in the show offensive. But for sheer accuracy and quality content, it must be realistic. This is exactly what the director showcased in Moon Knight. From the edginess of Steven and Marc’s characters to summoning the powers of Khonshu and fighting enemies in just a few moments, the shift in nature was very realistic.

2. Egyptian God “Khonshu”
As powerful and mystic of a character as he is, Khonshu has had a secret identity since always. This God of Moon and Vengeance gave powers to Marc Spectre in the first place. This is why Marc will attain ridiculous super strength and abilities to annihilate any foe who stands against him when under the moon.
3. Lunar Strength
As mentioned above, Moon Knight received his powers from the Khonshu, but they only function as long as he is under the influence of the moonshine. As soon as he gets clouded by the moon’s glare, he loses his powers and weakens over time. His powers will be maximum when it is a full moon at night.
4. Ties to the Secret Avengers
As shady as The Wolverine, Moon Knight also recognizes himself as a lone wolf. However, he ends up among a group of other powerful superheroes. Although, because of his mental condition or the DID, other avengers weren’t easily trusted.
5. Comparisons to The Batman
Moon Knight is often compared to DC Comics character, The Batman. It is because of their fighting style and similar characteristic. They both can be seen during the nighttime for some hard-hitting action. Also, both can be picturized as an Outlaw in some way. But the main difference between them is that Batman fights off and maintains a code of honor to protect his city of Gotham. Whereas Moon Knight fights under a mental condition and multiple identities, of which he cannot seem to keep track of even himself.
