Moon Knight #7 (I thought he died last week? Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Nov 04, 2011 11:39 am

Count Nefaria is revealed as the Kingpin of LA and although we pretty much had all guessed it, was still cool to see him show up. And then have his ass kicked by Moon Knight! How embarrassing for him. One of the things I like about this book is how Bendis is really embracing the idea that he is writing for a C-List character, both in-universe and out. Every time some character makes fun of Moon Knight for being lame it makes me smile. It’s a bit like what Johns is doing with Aquaman, but perhaps a little less on-the-nose. It just gives the book a lot more freedom, Moon Knight isn’t that important, so Bendis can get a little wild. Maleev’s art was as wonderful as always, he’s just a great fit for this book.

I agree with your other points, by I disagree with this one. Johns doing this with Aquaman was one of big reasons why I didn't like the first issue of that series. Its not as huge a factor in Bendis' writing in Moon Knight, but if it was I'd have dropped this series after the first issue.

Not to turn this into a "versus" thread, but how was Moon Knight able to beat up Count Nefaria, who last I heard was powerful enough to fight entire teams of Avengers by himself?

He used something which removed Nefaria's superpowers temporarily, probably SPIN-tech.
