Moon Knight

Moon Knight is one of the Marvel Universe’s characters. Marc Spector is a mercenary who is chosen by Khonshu as his avatar. Khonshu is a moon god who is worshipped by ancient Egyptians. Marc Spector becomes “The Fist of Khonshu”. That’s how Marc Spector gets his powers. Khonshu’s name actually translates to “to cross” or “to travel”, just like how the moon travels across the sky. Khonshu is also known as the God of fertility, health, healing, time, and the moon. Since, Khonshu can not leave the Othervoid, a place out of normal time and space. And hence, he chooses Marc Spector as his avatar through psychic connections to come into the physical world. Khonshu the entity, has a multi-faceted personality. This as a result becomes the reason why Marc Spector has multiple aspects of his personality.

Powers and Abilities

Moon Knight has impeccable acrobatic abilities. (As it is shown in the Moon Knight Disney+ trailer reveal as well). He also has amazing combat abilities, marksmanship, and intimidation tactics. Being tolerable to high amounts of pain and torture is also one of his abilities. He can also be resurrected in the events of death. And has psychic visions and prophecies. At times he has also been shown to possess superhuman strength.
