Quotes by Marc Spector (Earth-616)

- You know where I belong, punk? I belong with the decent and innocent folk-- who can't find a moment's peace-- not in the streets, not in their own homes-- so long as punks like you terrorize them.

- No Khonshu... I am Marc Spector. I am Steven Grant. I am Jake Lockley. And we are going to be okay. We are going to live with who we are. We are Moon Knight. And we never needed you.

- Y'know, kid, it's kinda funny. You wanna be powerful, be feared. But we both know that, really, people are always gonna be more scared of me. And that's why you do it, right? Why you're playing at being the master criminal. 'cause you know I'm the real deal and you are not. And that you'll never, ever be me. You're just a cheap-ass copy.
- Mummies are rising from their graves, building pyramids of power at specific points across the globe. It is always night, and the sky is filled with moons. And sometimes muffled thunder. Welcome to the Age of Khonshu. Welcome to the world I have wrought.
- My name is Marc Spector. The fist of the Phoenix.
