Keep your eye on the sky this week, as we'll have the lowdown on a lunar body that's on a collision course with your roster. And after getting your fill of S.T.R.I.K.E.-issued moon cheese, strap in for details on the upcoming Shadowland Event Campaign, high energy Blitzes, and Bonus Events to feed your roster. Now, it's time to introduce you to Mark Spector, Jake Lockley, Steven Grant, and, of course, Moon Knight...
Arriving to help the Shadowland team eclipse top Alliance War Defenses is their fifth member: Moon Knight. Mark Spector was a boxer, Marine, and then a CIA operative before turning to a lucrative career as a mercenary. But while on a contract in the harsh Egyptian desert, his employer left him for dead. Spector found his way into an ancient tomb near a statue of the moon god, Khonshu, where he succumbed to his wounds. But instead of passing on permanently, he was brought back from the dead to be Khonshu's vessel of vengeance: Moon Knight.
Thanks to Spector's days in the military, Moon Knight is a dangerous combatant and deadly with a wide range of weapons. Khonshu endows Moon Knight with enhanced strength, stamina, and reflexes based on the lunar phase of the moon. Spector also suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder, caused by his past traumas, which manifests into unique personalities to help him cope with reality. These personalities have also come to assist his crime fighting, including Jake Lockley, a savvy cab driver, and Steven Grant the millionaire playboy.
