Moon Knight Vol 5 6

Quote1.png 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. Quote2.png
Avengers Vol 8 34
Quote1.png My name is Marc Spector. The fist of the Phoenix. Quote2.png
Avengers Vol 8 36
Quote1.png Let me cut right to it. I know Khonshu is unworthy of my worship or anyone's. I know he tried to take over the world. I know he deserves to be imprisoned wherever the Aesir are keeping him, off in Asgard. But unworthy or not, I am his fist. Quote2.png
Moon Knight Vol 9 1
Quote1.png My brain is Moon-silvered, lunatic, cratered with a god's fingerprints. The deep structures of my mind have been irreversibly changed by communion with an ultraterrestrial intelligence.

Quote1.png I told you... that I was going to hurt you. Hurt you beyond all comprehension. Quote2.png
Moon Knight Vol 9 10
Quote1.png I used to tell cops I wear white so the bad guys can see me coming... But if I'm being honest with myself... It's so I always see the blood that's on my hands. Quote2.png
Moon Knight: Black, White & Blood Vol 1 2
Quote1.png Let's establish some parameters. I'm not Spider-Man. And I'm not the Punisher. They represent extreme ends of the same costumed spectrum. I'm Moon Knight. And you all know that means one thing. No one in this room --myself included-- knows precisely what I am capable of. I beat the Avengers. Imagine what I could do to any one of you. Quote2.png
Marc Spector (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You asked me--How could such a beautiful land be ruled by such evil? Simple: Water takes the path of least resistance. Makes for crooked streams and crooked names. Quote2.png

Mr. Knight
Officer, I appreciate your perspective. But I'm talking about going underground into the hideout of a highly trained killer, which will be where he keeps all his weapons. I'd prefer to do that part for you.

You're crazy.

Marc Spector (Earth-616) from Moon Knight Vol 7 1 001.jpg
Mr. Knight
It's been said.

Look, Peter never disclosed exactly what you did together. But I know you're not precisely qualified to study somnological subjects.

Marc Spector (Earth-616) from Moon Knight Vol 7 1 001.jpg
Mr. Knight
I am. I am precisely qualified. Dreamers are people who travel at night. That is my specialist subject.
