Moon Knight

History

Marc Spector was a rabbi's son from Chicago who pursued a career as a heavyweight boxer, then as a Marine, and finally as a mercenary, searching for purpose. He found none until an ill-fated job in Egypt. Another merc, Raoul Bushman, attacked Marc's group in an effort to loot a newly discovered temple.

Being left for dead, Marc found himself face to face with Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon. Khonshu offered to bring Marc back to life in exchange for the man becoming the god's agent on Earth. He accepted, rising from the dead and garbing himself in the shroud hung over Khonshu's statue in the temple. Taking revenge on Bushman, Marc from that point onward became known as the Moon Knight, the fist of Khonshu.

Since that time, Marc has worked to realize Khonshu's plans, fighting crime and helping others in the process. However, two other personas have asserted themselves in Marc - Steven Grant and Jake Lockley - and, alongside Moon Knight, work with and against the rest of Marc's cluster of identities. Khonshu occasionally exerts itself in Marc's life as well, directing Moon Knight's actions, but so have various friends and acquaintances concerned with Marc's mental and emotional well-being.

Personality

Marc Spector is a man of many faces that wax and wane like the cycles of the moon. At differing times and for differing purposes, he may be Marc Spector, mercenary-for-hire; he may assume the guise of Steven Grant, an enterprising entrepreneur who moves in elite circles; or he may wear the face of Jake Lockley, a down-and-dirty cab driver at home on the mean streets of NYC.%r%rThe Moon Knight also assumes several personas, from that of a costumed and caped hero seeking to bring justice to the world to that of a masked investigator and consultant 'Mister Knight'. At times he is a compassionate and helpful figure; at others, he is cold and vengeful - frequently in contrast to the demeanor of his deity Khonshu (or perhaps Khonshu assumes a demeanor in contrast to his own).

Enhanced Physique

Marc acquired a number of enhanced physical features as a result of agreeing to serve Khonshu. These include heightened stamina, strength, and reflexes that allow him to lift nearly a thousand pounds or exert himself continuously for several hours. However, the extent to which Marc's body is "superhuman" aligns with the lunar cycle, so that during a new moon he is only slightly tougher, faster, and stronger than a normal human.
