Moon Knight may become an Avenger in the future, but this is the wrong path for the character to take. Many Avengers 5 fans believe that Oscar Isaac’s Crescent Crusader character from his upcoming Disney+ series is one of several new Phase 4 heroes. It makes sense that the next Avengers team, if there is one, will be comprised of newer characters since several of the most prominent Avengers were killed off in Avengers: Endgame.
If and when the next big team-up happens, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Shang-Chi, Black Knight, and Monica Rambeau will all be considered for membership in the Avengers. Moon Knight is also mentioned in some of these conversations. There has recently been talk about Moon Knight creator Jeremy Slater becoming more involved with the team.
Marc Spector joining the Avengers is the “goal,” he said, even though he doesn’t have any say in whether or not that happens. If that’s the case, it’s possible that Moon Knight’s solo adventures on the small screen could one day lead to him teaming up with other heroes in The Avengers 5.
As exciting as that idea may be, it doesn’t fit in with Moon Knight’s character development. The Fist of Khonshu has long been regarded as a solo hero in the comics. Despite his time with Hawkeye’s West Coast Avengers and Steve Rogers’ Secret Avengers, he remained the same person. Marc was only an Avenger in the 1980s due to Khonshu’s influence on him. Marc later stated in the comic that he had no intention of becoming an Avenger and that he had no desire to do so. The reason for this is simple: Moon Knight is and always will be a self-sufficient individualist.
When Moon Knight is left to his own devices, his erratic personality really comes to life. When he’s working with others, that aspect of his personality doesn’t work so well. So why does the rest of the Marvel Universe fear him and have reservations about teaming up with him? After all, there’s a good reason for that. Because of his unconventional tactics, Moon Knight is an unwelcome addition to any team.
There are times when Moon Knight goes off on his own to do things his own way in the comic books because he understands this. Hawkeye, the head of the West Coast Avengers, had to put up with this type of behavior. Moon Knight put up with Khonshu’s bullying only because he had been deceived into believing that he was destined to join the Avengers.
Marc’s style was very different when he became an Avenger. Several of his fellow superheroes also objected to his abrasive and ruthless approach, which they compared to Captain America and Spider-Man. However, despite Moon Knight’s stricter rules on killing than the Punisher’s, he does not hesitate to take the lives of his enemies. As a result, while Moon Knight might be able to get along with a few other MCU characters, if forced to form a team with them, he would be completely out of place in the Avengers.
