Summary

Caped crusaders are a dime a dozen, as are the stories of their origins. Understanding the why of how superheroes come to be is treated as a requirement to enjoy their later adventures, just as the serial nature of the MCU semi-requires viewers to watch all of its content to really “get” what’s going on in the hot new project. Or it did, until Moon Knight.

As a lesser known Marvel comics hero, relating his origin story was the easiest way to introduce a TV audience to Marc Spector, the white suit-wearing antihero with a connection to the Egyptian gods and a penchant for beating up bad guys. Moon Knight thankfully does not take the easy path, trading in the hero’s origin story for a narrative that plops the audience in the middle of an extremely strange time in Marc Spector’s life — that is to say, when he isn’t actually Marc Spector. It first introduces a stranger named Steven Grant, a mild-mannered museum gift shop clerk with a wobbly British accent and social skills on par with an anxious chihuahua.
