Thought of Infinity War after seeing this post
http://www.comicboards.com/app/show.php?msg=mub-2008062317585072
and decided to dig up an old copy to verify the reverse-heroes as candidates. Since it was out, decided to read it and maybe review it for any interested (or out of habit now). Here goes...

Marc Spector Moon Knight 42 (1992)
eBay

Blecch.

Y'think Marc is going thru craziness now? During this time 'round he went thru more nuttiness than Squirrel Girl's favourite sandwich.

The letters page (aaah, letter pages...) said it best "this is the most bizarre MK issue ever published". This turned out to be a negative thing. Count NINE accomplished, and liked, artists combining for this >--negative adjective--< effort with this crazy convoluted chronicle. The premise seemed to have a host of parody dopplegangers combine into a serious multiversal crisis. Doesn't work - or maybe it's just dated. IIRC, liked the Infinity War Event in general.

Moonshade, Darkmoon, Moonfang, Greywing, Cresent Moon, Moon Ghost, Dino-Knight, Mr.Spector, Moon-Maid, and the inevitable Moonman & Moonboy! On a pure parody level it would have read more fun but there were too many words complicating it.

Newswoman Ellen Brosterman was the only credible character.

Cutting to the chase... it goes on my to-sell-pile.

Not going to be looking for next issue but am curious if anyone recalls how MK defeats Moon Shade. tia

Moonknight destroys Moonshade by sticking his adamantium staff into his torso and 'activating its conductive charge' thus making him explode.

Unfortunately just about all of 'Marc Spector: Moonknight' is a waste of time after the issues in the mid 20's of the run with poor writing and terrible manga-esque art that had become regular in alot of Marvel titles at the time.

Best go back and read the original run or the current one if youre after decent Moonknight stories.
