EPISODE 257 - MOON KNIGHT: PART ONE



In 1975 writer Doug Moench and Artist Don Perlin, in need of a villain powerful enough to subdue and capture a werewolf, created a throw away character they called The Moon Knight.

47 years later Moon Knight has become the avatar of an Egyptian Moon God, the Fist of Khonshu, a hero who punishes evil despite battling with dissociative identity disorder, and the star of his own, self-titled, six episode mini series on Disney Plus set smack dab in the middle of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This is the first part in a multi-part series of episodes in which I look at the publishing history of Moon Knight in Marvel Comics to see how the character went from a minor villain in a book about a werewolf, to the complex, multi-faceted, hero we know today.

In today's episode I'm looking at Moon Knight's first appearance in Werewolf By Night 32 and 33 from 1975.
