Moon Knight #6
Issue(s): Moon Knight #6
Moon Knight takes his whole supporting cast down to New Orleans for a working vacation. A friend on the local police force is having some voodoo trouble, and Moon Knight and company sort it out for him.
Moon Knight states that any super-powers he may have received when he was bitten by Werewolf By Night have faded away. I didn't realize that was a possibility, but it's apparently moot at this point. He's just an ordinary man now.
Marlene challenges Moon Knight's multiple personalities a bit, but it doesn't really go anywhere, and it's pretty clear that he is in control and can switch personalities at will, so it really doesn't seem like a borderline mental illness.
It's ok. We're all really here for the Sienkiewicz/Janson art.

Gotta admit, Moon Knight would be very visually striking to foes, particularly superstitious ones, a white, cloaked angel leaping from the dark sky.

In the original stories, I did not get the impression MK had MPD, but that he had adopted different personas and was very, very much a "method actor" type. And that to a agree, all his personalities were simply "masks" - as he truly gained some sort of spiritual enlightenment when Khnoshu brought him back from the dead to serve as his vessel/tool. We didn't actually know "who" MK really was.
Lesser writers than Moench could not pull that off. And by the time Dixon was writing it, he was simply Marc Spector with cover identities.

I agree with kveto that Moon Knight would be very visually striking.
Having said that, I also think that for someone who is an experienced mercenary who wants to sneak around at night unseen, an all-white costume is exactly the wrong sort of thing to be wearing. I wish this could have been explained some way. For example, why couldn't Konshu give him the power to shift his costume color from black to white, like the waxing and waning of the moon?
