In 1975 writer Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin, in need of a villain powerful enough to subdue and capture a werewolf, created a throw away character they called: The Moon Knight.
47 years later Moon Knight is a hero who punishes evildoers, despite battling with Dissociative Identity Disorder. He is the Fist of Khonshu, the avatar of an Egyptian Moon God, and the star of his own self titled six episode mini series on Disney Plus set smack dab in the middle of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This is the third part in a multi-part series of episodes in which I look at the publishing history of Moon Knight in Marvel Comics to see how the character went from a minor villain in a book about a werewolf, to the complex, multifaceted hero with enough pull to headline his own TV Show.
Today, dear listeners, I'm looking at Marvel Spotlight #29: The Deadly Gambit of Conquer-Lord by Doug Moench, Don Perlin, Irene Vartanoff, and Debra James.
Marvel Spotlight 28 was published by Marvel Comics on May 11, 1976.
