History: (What If? I#34/45) - After a night of crime-fighting, Moon Knight thought about how easy crime-fighting was compared to his civilian identities. In the time that followed, Moon Knight was active in his other identities of a pest exterminator, rat fur millionaire, and comic book editor.

Comments: Created by Bill Sienkiewicz.

This reality was an alternate Earth, as Moon Knight manifested very different split personalities than the ones he exhibited on Earth-616.

Profile by Proto-Man.

Earth-Moon Knight Had 3 Different Identities has no known connections to


Marlene was the same as her Earth-616 counterpart except for that she first met Moon Knight in his identity of Chuck Glickman. When Moon Knight, as Chuck, killed Marlene's father while trying to kill a pack of rats at Marlene's home, Marlene decided to accompany Moon Knight on his crime-fighting, seeing through his icy exterior and seeing a good man. Soon after, while accompanying Moon Knight in his identity of Murray Bushbaum, Marlene's purse was stolen by a crook.

Moon Knight

Moon Knight was the same as his Earth-616 counterpart except that he manifested three very different split personalities than his counterpart. On this Earth, Moon Knight manifested the identity of Chuck Glickman, ruthless vermin exterminator. When he was hired to kill a group of rats at the home of a woman named Marlene, he inadvertedly killed her father, blinded by his rage at the rats. Seeing through his icy exterior to the good man inside, Marlene decided to accompany him on his quest to napalm the scum of the Earth. Using the ill-gotten gains from his Glickman identity, Moon Knight then manifested the identity of Murray Bushbaum, a millionaire who capitalized on the growing market for rat fur coats. He later manifested the third identity of Ned Coldguts, editor for a major comic book company, often thinking of napalm his underlings.

Moon Knight did not display any superhuman powers but presumably had the same strength-enhancing abilities based on the moon phases that his Earth-616 counterpart had.
