The Rundown: Moon Knight will take on Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in his quest to save the world.

At the gates of K’un-Lun, Moon Knight sits and prays. When Danny Rand appears, he tried to talk to the troubled hero and offers to help him stop whoever he has come looking for help to fight. Unfortunately for Danny, Spector doesn’t need Danny Rand, he needs the Iron Fist. After stealing the power from Danny, he next sets his sights on Doctor Strange.


After speeding away from Robbie Reyes’ house in the hellcharger, Moon Knight’s next stop is Wakanda. His encounter with Black Panther takes an unexpected turn and the warrior next sets his sights on Thor. Unfortunately for the Thunder God, Spector will teach him an unfortunate lesson about the nature of his hammer before begining the next phase of his plan.

The Story: As the start of a new story arc, Jason Aaron takes the characters and the story in some interesting and unexpected places. I was not able to predict what was going to happen next and that made the story all the more engaging. Seeing a focused, determined Moon Knight is both entertaining and troubling and I am keenly interested in what happens with both the character and his relationship to the heroes he’s attacked. The dialogue is well done and kept me interested in where the story goes next.

The Art: Javier Garron does some good work with the art in this issue. The Moon Knight/Iron Fist fight was definitely the highlight. Everything after was good visually, but really didn’t capture the emotional impact of those first few pages.
