Vengeance of the Moon Knight #2

Framed in much the same manner as the first issue, Vengeance of Moon Knight #2 gives us Tigra talking things through with Dr. Andrea Sterman while providing a bit more of the new Moon Knight's confrontation with the inhabitants of the Midnight Mission. By the end of the issue a couple of things are clear, this Moon Knight is certainly capable of holding his own against any of them, and he is not Marc Spector.

Vengeance of Moon Knight #1 filled in the emotional gap left for the group by Marc Spector's death. Vengeance of Moon Knight #2 is centered around how his abscence has affected one character in particular. The Mission's rejection of the Moon Knight, on top of his attitude towards Marc Spector's friends, all but cements someone other than Marc is wearing the mask. I still have a theory born out of the end of the last series, but given the structure of the first two issues it might be quite some time before we get answers.
