BARE BONES (Written by Rey):
With Moon Knight injured from the bomb blast that decimated the Midnight Mission, Zodiac capitalises on Marc’s disoriented state and continues to beat on him. Meanwhile Reese frantically runs to seek aid and soon finds an unlikely ally.
Returning to the Midnight Mission, Zodiac continues his assault and intends also to kill Soldier - motivation for Moon Knight to come after him. Without warning, Zodiac is attacked from behind and it’s revealed that Hunter’s Moon has come to the rescue, having listened to Reese’s plea for help.
Unable to feel pain, Zodiac steadies himself and makes his escape by blowing up some cars parked near the mission. The intent proves successful, as it distracts Hunter’s Moon, allowing Zodiac to escape. There is nothing more to do, but help Marc and tend to his wounds.
After a brief vision of Khonshu, Marc awakes and finds Dr. Badr (aka Hunter’s Moon) stitching him up. Badr explains that although they have had their differences, they still are brothers - both sons of Khonshu. Marc falls unconscious and enters a dream-like state - travelling through his own mind as Badr explains how he came to be the Fist of Khonshu.
A diligent and studious individual, Badr soon discovered that knowledge didn’t bring him closer to his own spirituality, nor did he feel the presence of his god. Through this, he nurtured his rational, pragmatic side and lost touch with his faith.
A savage attack by vampires set Badr on the road to meeting Khonshu, and it was from this salvation, that Badr finally experienced what he had yearned - to know a god. This in turn grew into animosity for Marc, as Badr felt Marc had squandered his gift.
Wrapping Marc up in bandages like a mummy, Badr physically heals Marc whilst explaining his change of heart towards Moon Knight. Reese’s action to approach Badr, despite the danger she put herself in, brings him to the realisation of the nobility of those he once thought petty.
Marc soon heals (not completely) from his wounds, but Badr’s work is done and an alliance is formed.
Outside Tigra and Reese collect Marc and take him back to the Midnight Mission, where he is met favourably by the community. Mr. Knight heads inside, and despite the ruins around him, declares that he IS Moon Knight…and he’s not going anywhere…
