Comic creators Jonathan Hickman and Chris Bachalo reunite to present a new version of Moon Knight that hails from the distant future. Moon Knight: Black, White and Blood is the newest addition to Marvel Black, white and blood miniseries, which includes Wolverine, Deadpool, Carnage, and Elektra. What makes this Moon Knight unique is that he comes from 6,000 years in the future of the Marvel Universe. As far as we know, it is not Marc Spector, but a mysterious new character who is the last living priest of Khonshu. Bachalo’s character designs give fans a first look at this future Moon Knight.
Our futuristic Moon Knight has the same white cape and cowl as the current iteration. In fact, much of his superhero costume remains more or less the same. His face is obscured by the cowl, though a sliver of eyes can be seen in the black helmet worn underneath. When this Moon Knight removes his hood, he appears to have a bald head with tattoos.
Disney+ is gearing up for its live-action premiere moon knight series starring Oscar Isaac. The first full trailer was revealed in January, which also gave fans a glimpse of Ethan Hawke’s Arthur Harrow, who will be the main antagonist in Marvel Studios’ production. The series will premiere March 30 on Disney+.
As for Moon Knight in the comics, he’s currently headlining an ongoing series by writer Jed MacKay and artist Alessandro Cappuccio. The series follows Marc Spector as he opens the Midnight Mission as he protects the citizens from the evil wickedness that stalks the night.
