Does anyone know if there is a connection between MK and DC Comics' Azrael (Jean-Paul Valley)? Given that their outfits almost match, their fighting styles are very similar and they both are driven (for good or for bad) by a deity of some kind, seems like it's too much to be a coincidence.
MK has always been considered by some fans to be a Batman rip-off and Azrael is kind of an emotional kid who continually wants Batman's approval (and, at one point, inherits the Batman name), so it's possible that he was created to be a tongue-in-cheek parody of Moonie.
Or maybe Denny O'Neil just loves writing characters with Kafka-sized baggage. Well, I guess that's a given...
Sorry if this is an old argument within the community, but I've really only been into the MK scene for a few years. I just didn't know if anyone at DC acknowledged that the two characters were so similar, or if they're supposed to be analogous to each other.
