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.
