Later incarnations have had him lose his grip on reality and treat each of these personae [[SplitPersonality as different people]], among other identities crafted to suit his needs. Also commonly seen as a CaptainErsatz of Franchise/{{Batman}}, due to the "millionaire playboy" Steven Grant personality and cape-wearing overly-thematic nighttime vigilantism.

vigilantism, although he has more in common with Radio/TheShadow (a character Batman himself was a CaptainErsatz of), even being described by Warren Ellis as "The Shadow by way of John Woo".


Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: While he is commonly referred to as a Batman-expy, he has far more in common with Batman's own inspiration, Radio/TheShadow. Both are darker vigilantes with varying degrees of brutality depending on the adaptation, driven partially by a desire to atone for their pasts, related to mystical concepts that can be explained psychologically, varying degrees of super abilities, and who may or may not be paladins of higher mystical entities, depending on the version. Moon Knight, like The Shadow, relies on a close network of agents (outright referred to as the "Shadow Cabinet"), some of which include close friends and people aware of his secret identity, and a complicated relationship with a romantic interest. Additionally, Moon Knight also employs multiple identities in his missions via his different personalities.

He also entered the spotlight (kind of) as an official member of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's ComicBook/SecretAvengers after ''Siege''. In 2014, he got a new ongoing series with the first six issues by WarrenEllis and Declan Shalvey. After them, it became a rotating writer/artist book, with Creator/BrianWood and Greg Smallwood doing #7-13 and Cullen Bunn and Ron Ackins doing #14-17. Declan Shalvey remained on covers for a while and Jordie Bellaire on colours. Each issue was a done-in-one adventure (with some recurring background plots) rather than the more common arc-based structure.
