Most of the other heroes in the Marvel Universe are superhuman or peak human or otherwise enhanced but Hudsons Moonknight was a guy way below 'peak' who managed to be a hero anyway.
Ive read MK since the very beginning and theres all sorts of thinsg I like. Hr had daddy issues, he has authority issues, he's done shameful things and under different circumstances would be a villain in anybodys book, he's mentally ill, he suffers the contradiction of being raised an orthadox jew but being the icon of an alltogether more ancient, savage and pagan god - and yes, he has a cool costume.
: I hear ya CFS! I was also drawn to Moon Knight
: because most characters lose their edge when
: seeking redemption. Not MK! If anything he
: treats those that remind him of his past
: even more brutally. No flower-power speeches
: --Previous Message--
: I got my first Moon Knight comic when I was
: around 11 years old out of the 25 cent bin.
: Thats where I got all of my comics at that
: age, and I couldn't resist this comic
: because Moon Knight's costume was amazing.
: I'm beginning to notice that the costume is
: a trend with fans. What got me hooked on
: moon knight is his origin. He made a lot of
: mistakes, and he now regrets them greatly.
: He wants to repent, but remains tortured.
: This is something in my adult life I have
: been able to relate to greatly. Being
: tortured by the past, and trying to overcome
: it with good deeds.
