Mr. Knight and Reese have an evening snack at the Midnight Mission when a man stumbles in, bloodied and shaken from an attack outside. A group of elderly people set upon the man, named Soldier, and it appears that something freaky is afoot.
Mr. Knight takes Soldier in and learns more about the attack, one interesting point being that Soldier’s very own Mum was amongst his attackers.
With Reese fleeing from the sight of Soldier’s blood, Mr. Knight and Soldier return to his apartment block, intent on questioning his Mum. They pass by a janitor whom Mr. Knight immediately suspects as being involved. His suspicions prove correct as the janitor announces that he has been employed to hurt and break Mr. Knight. Uncannily, the janitor has the ability to control people with his sweat, and by tampering with the water supply, he has effectively managed to taint and control all the elderly tenants.
A stand off ensues, and it’s revealed that Soldier is also under the janitor’s spell, leaving Mr. Knight alone against the mob. Mr. Knight challenges the janitor to a duel by volunteering to defy the janitor's mind controlling powers. A sample of uncut sweat is scraped onto a crescent dart, much to the insane joy of the janitor who started revelling in the chaos he could wreak with Moon Knight under his control. Mr. Knight licks it clean off, with a startling revelation slowly unravelled within the mindscape.
The janitor is unable to control Mr. Knight - instead he is overwhelmed by Marc’s mind - a wholly alien realm touched by Khonshu. The janitor is left a gibbering mess with all tenants reverted back to their normal selves.
Mr. Knight returns to the Mission with Reese and they discuss how they’ve both been rewritten in different ways...Mr. Knight’s brain was rebuilt as a God’s weapon; Reese’s physiology rewritten to become a bloodthirsty killer...but how those crutches can be used against their enemies.
Lurking in the shadows across the street, the Hunter’s Moon awaits...
