Moon Knight #9 Review

Posted by Spiderfan001 19 January 2012

Moon Knight vs. Count Nefaria round 2!  Spoiler alert: this time it doesn't end well for our favourite moon themed superhero...

The Story

One week ago, Buck Lime created an energy shield for Moon Knight that looks and functions like Captain America's.  Buck also managed to recreate Spider-Man's webshooters (apparently S.H.I.E.L.D. reversed engineered the formula long ago) as well as some metal claws similar to Wolverine's.

In the present, Moon Knight is using all his gadgets to fend off Count Nefaria.  After getting Echo to safety (against her will), Moon Knight attempts to fight Nefaria, first with his Cap personality and then Spider-Man personality deciding his tactics.  Moon Knight is barely holding his own when Echo joins the fight, hurting Nefaria with her vibranium tipped staff.  The fight takes a tragic turn when Nefaria blasts Echo through the chest with his eye beams.  Enraged, Wolverine orders Moon Knight to kill Nefaria, but Cap and Spidey protest.  Wolverine responds by killing both Captain America and Spider-Man, allowing the blood thirsty Moon Knight to fight Nefaria unrestrained.


Damn, this might be the end of the Moon Knight/Echo relationship I've been enjoying so much since the series began.  There's still hope, as being shot through the chest is really just a scratch by comic book standards.  Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev have delivered another solid issue of Moon Knight with this action heavy issue.  I suspect things are going to get a lot worse for Marc Spector before they get better.
