Gregg Hurwitz Talks Vengeance of the Moon Knight!

Gregg Hurwitz Talks <i>Vengeance of the Moon Knight</i>!
The comic book writer discusses the new direction that the character will take in the upcoming Heroic Age...
IGN Comics recently had the chance to talk with Hurwitz about the direction the series will take during the Heroic Age. Here are some of the main points from the interview. For the whole thing, just click the link below!

Moon Knight has made the most of Dark Reign - does he take a similarly proactive approach to Heroic Age?

Moon Knight used Dark Reign to smash his way back into legitimacy. He came, he saw, and he conquered. He's got a pretty good head of steam up, but you know MK. He's a complicated dude, always on the verge of coming apart at the seams. So we have to see if he holds together given all the turbulence coming his way...

Moon Knight has been making a real attempt at being a hero. Will he find that a bit easier once Osborn reign finishes?

Our boy never has an easy journey. He's a complicated character and there's rarely clear sailing on the horizon for him. Osborn gone is certainly good, but MK always has that monster banging on the cellar door. There's an aspect to him that's a time bomb and we're always waiting to see when - and under which circumstances - he'll explode.

Will Moon Knight attempt to build relationships with his fellow Marvel heroes now that he's no longer quite so anti-social?

There's certainly going to be some of that coming up.

Will we see the Khonshu begin to take a stronger foothold in Jake's psyche as the series goes on?

Yes. There was a very clear arc that Khonshu traced during Shock and Awe. And Khonshu asserted himself by the end - he will not be ignored. He is a callback to all the dark parts of MK that Jake doesn't want to acknowledge while he's busy playing hero. And MK's task will be to continue on the right path and hold Khonshu's bloodlust at bay while also not repressing those parts of himself he'd rather forget. Because repression can be explosively dangerous...
