Justin features again on the show as fan-favourite host as he and Rey take on a very different Moon Knight tale...blink, and you'll miss it!
PHASE: WAXING GIBBOUS
SEGMENT: OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON
MARVEL FANFARE VOL. 1 #39 - #*@%&$!
Released August 1988
A lonely man prepares a bomb before dressing as a shiekh and catches a cab to the UN. Cab driver, Jake Lockley (aka Moon Knight) notices the nervousness of the man, as well as an aversion to bright and strobing lights. Amongst profanities in a city where you need to shoulder your way through, Jake drops the man off before heading to Gena’s diner for a feed.
The news on the TV blasts on in Gena’s diner and Jake hears of how a man in Arabic dress has taken the UN hostage with a bomb. Recalling that it was the man he had in his cab,Jake cusses before leaving a tip for Gena and rushes out. Gena picks up the wayward and measly tip and in turn cusses back at Jake’s behaviour.
Jake calls Frenchie and preps him for an assault on the UN, and after changing gear, Moon Knight swoops into the building, past the guards and the crowd of reporters….much to their chagrin.
Moon Knight meets the terrorist face to face, and instead of engaging in physical combat, proceeds to flick the lights on and off. Playing to what is revealed to be the man’s propensity for epileptic seizures, the man soon faints and is restrained, not before Moon Knight ensures the briefcase with the bomb doesn’t house any dead man triggers.
Later that same day, Jake Lockely peruses the streets for a cab fare when a man dressed in Arabic garb tries to hail down his cab. Once bitten, twice shy, Lockley high tails it out of there...leaving the wannabe passenger shouting expletives in the street.
Justin: 🌖 7.5 /10 - Solid Round Boi
Rey: 🌖 7 /10 - Solid Round Boi
In a short sharp tale, we see Moon Knight use his wits more than anything else, but still have time to drive around New York in a taxi dressed as the Fist of Khonshu...terrorism, seizures and expletives...all at no extra cost!
Shine those idols, and dust off the cape....IT'S TIME TO GET YOUR KHONSHU ON!
