We knew that Moon Knight was coming for Atomic Mass Games‘ Marvel: Crisis Protocol. We now have a solid look at the character in a newly released image.
Moon Knight is an interesting addition to the game who will bring more close combat to rosters.
Created by Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin, the character first appeared in Werewolf by Night #32 in 1975.
The character is similar to Batman in that they are both wealthy and use their wealth to fight crime with gadgets along with both being martial artists. However, Moon Knight is very different in ways. Marc Spector, a former boxer, Marine, CIA operative, and mercenary found himself betrayed and is left for dead. He’s approached by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu who offers him the chance to be his avatar on Earth. The character also has created multiple personalities to aid his fight against crime. He also might have dissociative identity disorder and is one of Marvel’s most high-profile Jewish characters.
Moon Knight will be played by Oscar Isaac in an upcoming show on Disney+.
So, what do you think of the miniature? What do you expect as far as gameplay?

Atomic Mass Games has released a teaser image of Jean Grey and Cassandra Nova. The two will be released in a pack together for the game Marvel: Crisis Protocol. Jean Grey is one of the more high-profile X-Men who hasn’t been released yet and Cassandra Nova is one of the more obscure villains.
Jean Grey debuted in X-Men #1 in 1963 and was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. One of the founding X-Men, she has telepath and telekinesis. The miniature for the game takes inspiration from her 1990s outfit design, one also close to the animated series look for the character.
Cassandra Nova first appeared in New X-Men #114 in July 2001. Created by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, the character is a “mummudra”, a parasitic life form born bodiless on the astral plane. The character features psionic powers and to create a body. In the “only can happen in comics”, Nova is a parasitic twin of Charles Xavier copying his DNA to make her own body. She’s the dark shadow compared to Xavier and commanded the army of Sentinels that committed genocide and murdered 16 million mutants in Genosha.
