Moon Knight #5 concludes the series’ introductory arc as Moon Knight and Marlene make it to the pyramid only to be confronted by… Moon Knight? Issue #5 is a bizarre end to a bizarre opening arc. Once again we’re unsure about the reality of what Marc Spector is experiencing. Taking his experience as real (or at least real to him) the comic does reveal the entity behind his recent torture to not be Seth but Khonshu who wants something from Marc he is unwilling to give up.

Featuring a bizarre run through the pyramid that becomes a journey through the various lives and identities Moon Knight has led over the years, the journey finally brings Marc face-to-face with his God who now wants more than just his allegiance. Khoshu wants his body.

Having escaped the mental institution and made it into the subway with his friends and other patients, Moon Knight has to deal with a host of mummies and Egyptian figures attempting to trap him and return him to his prison. Writer Jeff Lemire continues to blur the lines behind what is actually happening and Moon Knight’s perception of it. Although the other mentally unstable characters aren’t much more reliable than our main protagonist, the fact that they too see the subway station full of mummies helps confirm the odd reality Marc Spector is trapped isn’t only in his mind.

Moon Knight gets a new start in Marvel’s latest reboot of the series. Moon Knight #1 opens with Marc Spector incarcerated in a mental hospital against his will where he’s fed a continuous amount of physical abuse from the guards, electroshock therapy, and lies from a therapist I’m guessing doesn’t actually have Marc’s best interests at heart. Under a medically-induced haze Marc knows something isn’t right, but his drug addled mind struggles for the truth.

Continuing the trend started in last month’s first issue, writer Warren Ellis and artist Declan Shalvey offer another story where the themes dovetail into that of our main character but the crimes and villains of the piece take center stage. Moon Knight #2 focuses on the inner monologue of a screwed-over Special Forces soldier turned sniper looking for vengeance against those who he blames for his misfortunes.

Underutilized since the end of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev‘s twelve-issue run which ended in April 2012, Moon Knight has been largely absent from the Marvel Universe popping up in guest-spots here and there. And with good reason as that run is a hard act to follow. Picking up the torch for the new series which returns the hero from the west coast back to New York is writer Warren Ellis and artist Declan Shalvey.

When comic nerds talk about B-list and C-list heroes it’s characters like Moon Knight we’re often referring. Sure, sometimes they make a splash and end up on one of the big teams (although usually it’s the modest Secret or West-Coast version), but more often than not they find themselves without a book of their one, floating near the fringe of the bigger comic universe.
