In another session with Dr. Sterman, Mr. Knight justifies the use of a mask in an attempt to explain to the doctor why she’s never seen him without it on.
To Mr. Knight, the person that is Marc is insignificant compared to the symbol that is the Fist of Khonshu - they are part of his vestments...a suit or a shroud...and both are worn by dead people.
Elsewhere, Rampage aka Stuart Clarke explains to the mystery villain who hired him, how he hopes to break Moon Knight. The evil mastermind relishes Rampage’s strategy to attack Steven Grant’s funds and commends him and his tenacity.
Back at the Midnight Mission, Mr. Knight has a visit from one of his old friends, Tigra. Greer Nelson’s sunny disposition curries favour with Reese before Mr. Knight receives a phone call from Rampage, threatening to destroy his finances lest he do as he says.
Moon Knight complies and as the caped hero, attacks super villain Jigsaw and his crew late at night. Rampage wants revenge on Jigsaw and uses Moon Knight, who is happy to oblige. Quickly after, Moon Knight crashes into Rampage’s hideout, surprising the villain and alongside Tigra, the two heroes terrorise Rampage despite his attempts to threaten Moon Knight further by wiping out his entire bank account.
Moon Knight shrugs off any measly threat, and warns Rampage, “I’m Moon Knight. You have no hold over me”.
Later that night, Moon Knight and Tigra reflect on their friendship and how Moon Knight has changed. Marc reveals his sorrow in how he has destroyed his friends and even his relationship with his own daughter.
Wearily, Marc reveals to Tigra why he wears the mask - he does it in order to not have to look at himself (and see the person he’s become}...
Tigra comforts Marc and the two sit atop a building waiting till the new day earns the sun...
