Huh? For the comics of Moon Knight I read, he wasn't practicing as a Jewish person, he was worshipping the moon in an Egyptian cult or something.

Re: Xmen Origins: Wolverine

Moon knight's wiki:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_Knight

He's a crazy character.

"Moon Knight is often criticized as an ersatz Batman and the parallels are indeed apparent. Writer of the 2006 re-launch of Moon Knight, Charlie Huston attempted to answer these criticisms in an interview with Comixfan[1]. The interviewer noted that the comparison is not baseless, as both Moon Knight and the Dark Knight are wealthy, "normal" humans that use gadgetry to fight crime. Though not specifically mentioned by the interviewer, further comparisons may be drawn due to the two characters' specialized vehicles, use of themes in their gadgets, and use of fear to aid their fight against the criminal element.

Huston accepted that the two characters had their extreme similarities, but went on to contrast the two by noting in particular differences in origin, motives, and personality. "Bruce Wayne", he said, "fights crime to avenge the murders of his parents", whereas Moon Knight "beats up whoever has it coming because he believes he is the avatar of the Egyptian god of vengeance and it helps him to feel better about all the people he killed when he was a mercenary." Thus, while Batman is motivated by vengeance for wrong done to his parents, Marc Spector primarily seeks redemption from crimes he committed in his mercenary past. Huston further notes that Bruce Wayne, Batman's alter ego, takes on other personalities merely to aid in his fight. However, Moon Knight has three alter egos which aid him as much in dealing with personal demons as fighting law-breakers, and which have taken a further psychological toll of causing dissociative identity disorder. In the question of his sanity, Spider-Man remarked "Moony. Rhymes with looney."

Is Sabretooth supposed to be cool? I thought he was supposed to be the villain who really is a tool, a guy to truly hate and one that would rock a mullet, and a bad one at that.

So if you dislike Schrieber, doesn't that help?

Re: Xmen Origins: Wolverine

Moon Knight is one of Marvel's most bizarre characters.

Re: Xmen Origins: Wolverine

Moon Knight sucks, and so does his series. No liquor will be poured when that trainwreck is canceled.

Re: Xmen Origins: Wolverine

Ah, okay. I was on board during the Huston run where it was getting all this hype. I didn't like the story, or the art.

Nevertheless Moon Knight couldn't hold Danny Rand's Chi powered jock strap.

Actually Goyer is the one who ruined that movie in every way possible.

There were a lot of things that ruined Blade Trinity, one of them was taking the focus off of Blade.
