PHASE: LAST QUARTER
SEGMENT: OVER THE MOON ARC REVIEW
MOON KNIGHT VOL. 5 #26-30 - 'DOWN SOUTH'
Released July 2009
Marc Spector now resides in Mexico under the alias of Jake Lockley. He is approached by a man named Carlos who offers him a job to rescue a daughter of a land baron who has been kidnapped by rivals and put in a cell.
They bust into the prison wearing ski masks, and Lockley finds Carmen's cell. When Carmen learns that it was her father who hired Lockley to free her, she becomes extremely frightened. Lockley grows even more uneasy with this mission. Grabbing Carmen, he races out of the prison and meets back up with Alcantara's men at a predetermined rendezvous point. Jake is furious. He wants to know exactly what is going on. Before the men can respond however, a sniper (the Punisher) takes down Alcantara’s men. Jake shoves Carmen into a truck and drives off.
He brings her to a motel where he asks her why she is so afraid of her father. Alcantara intends on executing his daughter for her betrayal in front of the Russians as a show of force. There is someone that Carmen is even more afraid of than her father though. A "butcher" has been cutting through Alcantara’s ranks, using only bladed weapons.
Just as Jake goes to examine his gear, a rocket launcher blows up his front door; the Los Bros Zapata, a tag-team Mexican wrestler duo, have arrived to collect the bounty on the Carmen’s head. After a fight, Jake and Carmen run away.
As the two run, the mob spots them and tries to chase after them. However, Toltec is behind and butchers their heads off. The Brothers are shortly behind and learn that this was not what they signed up for and eventually their true intention; bring Carmen to Alcantara, but, kill and rob Alcantara instead of Toltec. As they walk away, Moon Knight, Punisher, and Toltec hears of their plan from separate angles.
The Zapata Brothers catch up with Carmen and capture her after seeing her accosted by other bounty hunters and one of the brothers forms an attachment for the baron’s daughter.
Moon Knight sees the brothers no longer form a threat and the three, working as a group, devise a plan to take down Alcantara. The Bros will extract Alcantara’s men away from his compound by saying they completed the mission while protecting Carmen, but meanwhile, Moon Knight will go for Alcantara at his base. With the compound nearly empty, Moon Knight, Punisher, and Toltec move towards Alcantara’s base.
Moon Knight catches up with Alcantara after conferring with the Punisher and knowing the Toltec is still out there, after having decimated Alcantara’s men. Toltec reveals himself. Jake walks away while Alcantara cries as Toltec butchers away.
That evening, Marc watches the news with a bottle of tequila in hand as he learns of the Dark Reign events after being away from the mainstream world for some time. Marc decides to return to New York, to deal with the matter at hand.
