Review: Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight #1

Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight #1

Life is full of unexpected events that no one can see coming. As the most diligent people often plan and plan for contingencies, and still it does not cover everything. There things we cannot anticipate, and there are people we do not anticipate being part of those events either. This is exactly how life throws those curveballs at you, which is why I tend to believe anything can happen.

There are certain people that will come into your life although it seems like it can take a millennia before you realize their purpose. As this is when you realize you can only control your own actions and react accordingly. This is where a strange alchemy between karma and purpose often intertwine. In Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight, Kamala is lead to find Marc, to hunt down a diabolical threat.

We are taken to New York City, where a swarm of tiny robots attacks a woman in an alley, and leaves a message for Moon Knight, “The Harvest is coming!”. The next night, Ms Marvel is tracking down those samer robots, who incidentally attacked Wolverine and is lead to Moon Knight’s storefront, where he hears the grievances of those who dwell in this neighborhood.  They decide to team up together and hunt them, as the bots qucily adapt, the two use water to counteract them this time, while electricity helped the last time. Knowing that they are outnumbered, Moon Knight enlists the help of another disciple of Konshu, Hunter’s Moon, who offers a hand in neutralizing the threat once and for all.  By issue’s end, they stop the threat,  but another element’s of the main perpetrator’s plan has gone into play.

Overall, Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight is a fun mystery that uses superheroes a little differently. The story by Houser is exciting. The art by the different creators is awe inspiring. Altogether, a story that is only one piece to a grander mystery.
