Best Moon Knight Costume Guide
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Marc Spector is the wayward son of a Jewish-American rabbi. Spector was a heavyweight boxer before becoming a U.S. Marine. He soon left the military to become a highly skilled combat mercenary and befriended the French pilot, Jean-Paul DuChamp known as “Frenchie.” The two ended up in Egypt working for the African mercenary, Raoul Bushman. Shortly after, Spector challenges Bushman to a fight and loses badly with his life left hanging in the balance. Miraculously, Spector has a vision with the Egyptian moon god Khonshu restoring his life. Revitalized, Spector creates a silver-cloaked costume and becomes “The Fist of Khonshu.” Get the look of the Marvel superhero with this Moon Knight costume guide.

Moon Knight Cosplay Costumes
Upon returning to the United States, Marc Spector begins to generate a sizeable fortune by investing the money he acquired from his days as a mercenary. He also creates a new identity to distance himself from his past—millionaire entrepreneur Steven Grant. Spector also creates the identity of a taxicab driver, Jake Lockley. This allows him to remain in touch with criminal elements while cultivating ties with civilian allies like Bertrand Crawley, Gena Landers, and her sons.
Moon Knight’s world is an entangled web that includes interacting with allies like Spiderman and foes like Jack Russell, Cyclone, Lupinar, and his brother Randall, the Hatchet Man. For all hardcore cosplay enthusiasts, this points to great opportunities for coming onto the scene as Moon Knight and his fellow superheroes no matter the comic-cons.
