It was recently confirmed that the series received a TV-14 rating, meaning that it would be on the same level as the other series we saw from Marvel on Disney+. This made noise for many fans, as this new character is usually a bit more violent in the comics. However, from what we saw in the trailers, it may surprise us, and quite a bit.

For this reason, this character thinks that he has sleep disorders, since at night “lose consciousness” and it is difficult for him to differentiate reality from dreams.

Disney Plus Marvel

Moon Knight series

The first synopsis announced by Disney it says: “Moon Knight andis a new action-adventure series featuring a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities that live within him are drawn into a deadly war with the gods against the backdrop of ancient and modern Egypt.

Kevin FeigPresident of Marvel Studiosdescribed the story of the series as “brutal” and, in the past, marked that “would change the way of understanding the stories of Marvel”. However, the fact that the program’s classification is TV-14 (PG-13 in the movies), that is, content that a teenager can watch in the company of an adult, not only leaves us with little flavor, but also contradicts in part what it said feige. Clearly it’s not going to have the violence of Daredevil or punisherbut hopefully it surpasses what we saw in the previous productions of Marvel Or at least show something a little more explicit.

What is the character’s history in the comics?

the first appearance Moon Night it was in august 1975 within the collection Werewolf by Night (#32), a play written by Doug Moench and drawn by Don Perlin. Supposedly, this character would only appear in that comic, but, thanks to his popularity, they created a story for him alone. This caused him to even cross paths with the avengersthe Captain America, Spider-Man Or until Wolverines.

Although he had great appearances throughout comics (Spectacular Spider-Man, The Defenders, Marvel Two-in-One, Hulk! Magazine), Moon Knight He never had the great popularity that other characters in Marvel. This may be related to the fact that her story was always much darker and more sinister, and that his violence and personality disorders made the character difficult to follow.
