5 MCU Characters Moon Knight Can Easily Defeat

Moon Knight is the next Marvel hero to be receiving his own live-action series, courtesy of Disney Plus and Marvel Studios. The character will be portrayed by Oscar Isaac, with Moon Knight’s dissociative identity disorder appearing to be the main focus of the series. Ethan Hawke and the late Gaspard Ulliel are also set to appear as the villains Arthur Harrow and Anton Mogart respectively.

With Moon Knight finally coming to the MCU, it’s a perfect time to draw comparisons between the latest MCU character and the other characters who are already a part of the MCU. Let’s take a look at Marvel heroes that Moon Knight can take out easily:

The Red Guardian

While The Red Guardian looks strong, we should remember that he is aging and growing old. Red Guardian was USSR’s reply to Captain America. He was shot with a type of super-soldier serum and was trained well in hand-to-hand combat.

Red Guardian’s super-strength makes him a worthy enemy for Moon Knight, but strength isn’t always everything. We should remember that Moon Knight is more agile and faster, and also downright vicious. We know that the Red Guardian is currently out-of-shape, but Moon Knight would’ve taken him out in his prime too.

 

The Death-Dealer

Death-Dealer was a deadly lieutenant, employed by Wenwu and the Ten Rings. Being a silent assassin, he is equipped with sorts of weaponry, Death-Dealer was easily able to give Shang-Chi quite the fight before the character was ultimately killed by a demon of the Dweller-in-Darkness.

That being said, Moon Knight’s fighting ability is nothing to laugh at. Moon Knight is also quite willing to mix things up and loves to play dirty if it means getting a victory. After all, Moon Knight is the man who ripped the face off one of his recurring enemies.

Moon Knight Can Take on Yon-Rogg

Yon-Rogg was the superior officer to Captain Marvel, when she was still a part of the Kree military, and a Kree Commander. He was a confident man, but Rogg lacked any actual power outside of his battle suit, fighting skill, and energy weapons.

However, all of this won’t amount to much while taking on Moon Knight. Marc Spector is an impressive martial artist, and he wouldn’t be impressed by any flashy uniforms or weapons. Eventually, Moon Knight would easily take Yon-Rogg down.

Star-Lord

Yes, that’s true – Peter Jason Quill aka the Star-Lord is a creative thinker, smooth talker, and someone with an impressive strength of spirit.

Unfortunately, none of this extends to his fighting abilities. While Star-Lord is actually good with his guns and can also throw a punch or perhaps two, he’s not on par with Gamora, Black Widow, Captain America, or Moon Knight. Marc Spector would beat the shit out of Star-Lord if he gets too close to him, and Moon Knight’s crescent darts would help him close that distance.

Hawkeye

Hawkeye was a founding Avenger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Barton was an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. with an unusual affinity for using a bow and arrow. While Hawkeye has an arsenal of trick arrows, Moon Knight would face some trouble while getting within the striking distance of Hawkeye assuming that Clint Barton actually saw him coming.

However, if Moon Knight came within the punching range, it seems quite likely that Hawkeye would find actually himself getting overpowered by Moon Knight.
