Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev, the team who brilliantly revived Daredevil, taking the best of Frank Miller and adding to it a deeper sense of “person,” spent eleven months doing the same thing for Moon Knight.  The story is about a search for a black market Ultron head, but what made it so great was the way the creators wove Spector’s hallucinations and split personality disorder into the story, showing us, the readers, how the character interacted with and relied on his imaginary friends to help him do things he otherwise would not have been able to do.

They didn’t change the character much, they simply elevated him.

And that brings this “evolution” series to an end.  As I write this, Moon Knight #3 is sitting in my LCS box, waiting to be read.  I’m loving Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey’s take on the character, and can’t wait to see what happens next.

As for my site, next: Power Man and Iron Fist!
