Why Mr. Knight is One of Our Favorite Parts of ‘Moon Knight’
The second episode of Marvel’s newest series was a near-flawless exploration into Marvel’s newest heroes, and we explain why Mr. Knight is one of our favorite parts of Moon Knight.
Marvel’s newest Disney+ series has proven to be one of their most unique endeavors to date, as Moon Knight is a series that takes the MCU to places it has never gone.
Mythical deities, mental illness, and cults define by eternal judgment, Moon Knight is a mature and brutal look into one of Marvel’s most interesting characters, adapted in a brilliant way that feels like a flawless interpretation of everything that makes him great.
Steven Grant has been chosen as the primary vehicle for the series, as the mild manner and- former- gift store clerk is doing his best to make sense of his rapidly altering world; with his dissociative identity disorder defining his reality, and taking over his life.
The series second episode explored more of the Steven Grant- Marc Spector dynamic, and it is some of the most interesting explorations in Marvel’s history; with both entities being unique characters unto themselves, with entirely different motives, reactions, and processes.
One of the cooler parts of the second episode comes when Grant attempts to bring forth the powers of Khonshu without Marc’s help; a situation that led to the birth of one of the best parts of the series.
The unique embodiment of the Moon Knight persona, Mr. Knight is the perfect live-action adaptation of the comic character of the same name, perfectly exploring the stark differences between Spector and Grant.
There was something so great about watching Grant attempt to use these newfound powers to defend Layla from an impending Jackal, all the while being incredibly unsure, and overwhelming enthused when he lands a single blow.
There is something about this moment bringing to life the stark differences in the two characters that are just so incredibly entertaining.
We can only hope that alter ego shows up some more in the series, as Mr. Knight is one of our favorite parts of Moon Knight
