In the comics, Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight, was a CIA agent turned mercenary who made millions. His mercenary wealth and investments earn him between $ 50 million and $ 3 billion in net worth, which gives him a smooth Bruce Wayne life. Yet during his last job as a mercenary in Cairo, Spector was left for dead by a former colleague.
Spector dragged himself through the desert sands to the tomb of Konshu, the Egyptian moon god. There he was pronounced dead but resurrected at the hands of Konshu. The resurrection took its toll as he developed multiple personality disorder. Back in New York, he created two new personalities – Steven Grant and Jake Lockley. Grant was the millionaire womanizer while Lockley was a taxi driver.
It was after developing his other personalities that he took on the role of Moon Knight. Konshu granted Spector increased physical abilities and periodic prophetic visions at night, but even Spector himself was unsure if Konshu was yet another personality of his own creation. Even still, Moon Knight operates with an arsenal of tech, vehicles, and costumes to meet his needs.
