Moon Knight, aka Marc Spector is a mercenary who goes by numerous names like cabbie Jake Lockley and millionaire playboy Steven Grant. These alter egos come in handy to fight the criminal underworld. The character was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin and appeared in the August 1975 issue Werewolf by Night #32. Moon Knight was later established as conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu but most recently, the character has transitioned to a consultant who dresses in all-white and goes by the name Mr.Knight.
