1074 Funko Pop Moon Knight With Weapon Funko Shop Exclusive
The exclusive 1074 Moon Knight With Weapon Funko Pop joins a decent list of cool Moon Knight Funko Pops that have been increased recently by the release of the Disney + Moon Knight series and the Pops that accompany the series.
Moon Knight first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1975 in the comic “Werewolf by Night” (#32). He was created by writer Don Perlin and artist Doug Moench who are also known for creating Batman’s adversary, Black Mask. He is a vigilante who fights crime using the powers granted to him by the Egyptian god Khonshu.
The “Werewolf by Night” (#32) sold for $0.25 when it first came out. A high-grade 9 copy is now valued at around $20k depending on who you talk to.
Moon Knights’ multiple personalities lead him to erratic behavior. He often has a strong tendency to use excessive force as a vigilante.
His relationship with the Egyptian god Khonshu gives him a very unique perspective on how justice looks.
The comic version and the Disney+ version are very different.
4 things the Moon Knight Disney+ Show changes from the comics
1/ British Accent Please
The made-for-TV version gives us a Steven Grant with a British accent. This was a request by Oscar Issac who wanted to steer away from the more widely used New York accent that we normally see.
2/ Marc Spector also has a wife
Marc’s estranged wife, Layla El-Faouly (Scarlet Scarab) never appeared in the Moon Knight comics. In the comics, Moon Knight’s love interest is Marlene Alraune who is much more waiting to be saved than Layla.
3/ Set in the Post Endgame world
Disney writers gave Moon Knight a modern-day storyline that was post-Thanos but make no reference to the Marvel villain.
At the end of the first Moon Knight episode, there is a cameo scene with The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) making it clear that the story is set post-Endgame.
4/ Moon Knight is much calmer
The superhero-villain dynamic in Moon Knight is where the antagonist has some kind of mental illness and is a social outcast. The protagonist does not and is loved by all. The Moon Knight Disney show reverses this dynamic.
