A Twist in the Tale

While the title may imply a grim fate, avid Marvel fans are well aware that death is often not permanent in the Marvel universe. The three-part Moon Knight story, titled ‘The Last Days of Moon Knight,’ is likely to be the beginning of a new chapter rather than the end. According to the comic’s writer, Jed MacKay, the pieces are set for an intense confrontation between Moon Knight and the Black Spectre, leading to war. Victory is not the only concern; survival itself hangs in the balance. The Midnight Mission, Moon Knight’s allies, is shrouded in mourning as the battle looms.
