Moon Knight descending

Spector's father, a rabbi, managed to escape Germany when Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia. Spector was born in the U.S. His mother died soon afterward. Marc refused to follow his father's calling; he could not understand why Elias never fought back against persecution. Instead he became a prize fighter, but when his father got into the ring one night to stop him, Marc punched him. The next morning he enlisted in the Marines. He never saw his father again.

After two tours of duty, he became a field agent of the CIA. There he worked with several people who would later interact with Moon Knight, including William Cross, Amos Lardner, and his own brother, Randall Spector. Randall killed Spector's girlfriend Lisa with a hatchet to keep her from exposing a gun-running scheme; Spector retaliated with a grenade and assumed Randall was dead.

After leaving the CIA, Spector became a soldier-for-hire. During this period he befriended "Frenchie" Duchamp, who became his professional partner. They took on several assignments, mainly in Africa and South America. Spector later went to trial for assassinating the president of Bosque Verde, a South American country; such assignments paid well, though, and Spector invested wisely.

Avengers vs. X-MenEdit

Moon Knight took the side of his fellow Avengers against the X-Men. He was sent to keep an eye on the Jean Grey School together with Falcon and She-Hulk. He takes an aggressive attitude to his job, and after exchanging barbs with Frenzy, he attacks her, leading to a fight. After She-Hulk injures some kids in the belief that they were a greater threat, a full scale conflict erupts with the rest of the schools faculty joining in the battle.

Powers and abilitiesEdit


Currently, Spector has no superhuman powers, but, as the Fist of Khonshu, he had these powers.

'Moon's Might:' At night, Spector's speed, strength, agility, reaction time, leaping ability, reflexes, senses and duribility increased as the moon waxed, and decreased as the moon waned.

'Astral Vision:' Spector could see magical beings that ordinary humans could not.

'Night Vision:' Spector could see in the dark.

'Shadow Walk:' Spector could become practically invisible in a shadowed area large enough to cover him.

'Healing Factor:' While in direct moonlight, Spector's injuries healed at a quicker than average rate.
