Interesting retcon! Spector was dishonourably discharged for assaulting a superior officer back in the Finch run. But I like this one too, and the focus it puts on mental illness.

I also really appreciate showing Marc's Jewish roots--is that supposed to be his mom?

I thought Moonie's mpd was supposed to be because of war torture and stuff?

Moonie has a lot going on, and a lot of explanations for why he's mentally unstable. Warren Ellis did a pretty good take on it when a character stated he didn't have MPD, but brain damage via a being from another world.

On that note, would you say that Lemire's take here is in conflict with what Ellis tried to establish? I'm curious because I fell off on the Lemire stuff quite early, and whenever I've checked back in it's seemed to be like he's essentially outright contradicting Ellis' stuff, which strikes me as weird given that the Ellis/Shalvey/Bellaire run is all that made anyone give a shit about Moon Knight in the first place.

Honestly, I haven't been reading Moon Knight since Brian Wood took over from Warren Ellis. I got bored with what he was doing around the time that it wasn't feasible for me to keep collecting single issues. So I've largely been going off what history's been posting here. It looks cool though, and as a diehard Moon Knight fan I'll definitely make plans to pick it up--especially now that I see him tackling his Jewish background. :) DEFINITELY something I've wanted to see be done with his character!

That probably makes more sense. And its nice that someone actually makes the goofy unreal stuff in a superhero universe have a consequence beyond 'stuff gets destroyed'.
