SEGMENT: OVER THE MOON
Moon Knight Vol. 5, Issues #14-19 - "God & Country"

Moon Knight continues his crusade against crime, wreaking vengeance on criminals with brutal force.
His extreme actions gain the attention of Tony Stark and SHIELD as public perceptions of superheroes are already tenuous at best.
Moon Knight also works with The Profiler to pinpoint particular targets and it it through this that he zeroes in on Simon Maddicks, aka Killer Shrike.
Moon Knights brutal brand of justice gains the ire of Frenchie but also piques the interest of one Carson Knowles. Knowles is finding it hard to adjust to society after serving a sentence and he's subjected to his own problems in the form of his parole officer.
Knowles' mental instability pushes him to return as Black Spectre.
Meanwhile Marc is suffering from his own inner demons and his relationship with Marlene fares no better.
She storms out and runs into Knowles who has similarly lost his way. Knowles decides to frame Moon Knight for crimes and Killer Shrike is soon murdered, left with a crescent moon carved on his head by Knowles.
Iron man soon catches up with Moon Knight but he tells Tony he's being framed.
Meanwhile elsewhere, Knowles the Black Spectre, picks up some Nanotech in his plan to control the city.
Black Spectre attacks Moon Knight and leaves him for dead.
Though he's pushed away many of his friends, Marc's close network like Ray and Crawley help him out to continue his fight and thirst for vengeance.
Moon Knight catches up with Black Spectre who is intent to release a controlling agent onto the populace and in a deadly rooftop fight, Moon Knight desparately decides to push Black Spectre over the edge, killing him.
