Chons, better known as Khonshu, was the son of Atum (known to the Egyptian gods as Ammon Ra) and of Amaunet, air goddess of the Ogdoad pantheon. Another account stated that Khonshu was in fact the adopted son of Amon Ra.
The worship of the Helipolitans by the inhabitants of the Nile River Valley began around 10,000 BC. Since then, Khonshu and Ra have been warring against each other, having been reborn again and again through earthly avatars, with Khonshu beating Ra in every instance.
Khonshu helped Marc overcome many obstacles as Moon Knight, but, over the years, Marc went completely insane and disappeared. He later returned to continue his fight, despite his tenuous grip on reality, but, after a while, Khonshu seemingly sent Marc and his allies to an illusory mental hospital designed to wear away the last of Marc's mind, thus freeing his body for Khonshu to inhabit and use to enter our world. However, in reality, it was all an imaginary scenario used to cure Marc of his insanity. In it, Marc had a confrontation with his alternate personas and realized that, to become whole again, he couldn't just ignore them, but had to embrace them instead. After returning to the Hospital, he crushed an illusory Khonshu's head and thus reconciled his illness, gaining control over his other personalities once and for all.
