There are some aspects that make Marvel’s Moon Knight better than DC’s Batman.
There’s little time left for Warner Bros and DC’s ‘The Batman’., which is directed by Matt Reeves, to be released. On the other hand, Marvel Studio is all set to explode with its much awaited most anticipated TV series ‘Moon Knight’. In such a situation, there is bound to be a comparison between Moon Knight and Batman. But both the comic book characters belong to different universe, yet where are the fans going to hold back from comparing. I am one of them too. Now the question arises, who is better between Moon Knight and Batman?
Reasons, How Marvel’s Moon Knight is better than DC’s Batman
There are many facts that suggest Marvel’s Moon Knight is better than DC’s Batman. This may sound odd to some DC fans. Let’s talk about the facts that tell Moon Knight better than Batman.
DC’s Batman has some flaws that Marvel’s Moon Knight fills in. Just like Batman doesn’t kill criminals when it’s not in extreme need, he’s always dependent on technology. Also he has the guilt of losing the family. as well as he keeps falling from family relations. Also maintains human physiology which does not even make sense in some extreme cases, like fighting Superman and super-villain. Batman’s identity is everything to him.
On the other hand, Moon Knight is just the opposite of this, he does not hesitate in the slightest to kill the criminal. Moon Knight is bold and open about his decision. He is less dependent on technology than Batman. Power from the Egyptian god Khonsu makes Moon Knight even better. As far as identity is concerned, Moon Knight takes his identity in concern but in the end of the day he would have made no difference. Moon Knight wearing white clothes at night gives a direct warning to his enemies, “look I’m coming”.
Batman is not very expressive about his emotions, as a leader he cannot make himself look weak and cannot bow down to anyone. In this way, when a man keeps his feelings inside for a long time, then he starts breaking it from inside. On the other hand, the feelings of Moon Knight are not his but of some other personality. Each of his forms wants to embrace his feelings, so Moon Knight doesn’t mind.
The biggest difference between the two is that Batman is a human and Moon Knight is not. Moon Knight’s magical abilities, resurrections lead him to the Greater Purpose. Still we don’t like Moon Knight because of Egyptian God, we like Moon Knight because of its insanity quality. It is this insanity that made the Joker in Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight even bigger than Batman. According to the comics books, we can’t predict when Moon Knight will become so fierce and merciless.
Where Batman works in collaboration with the Justice League or all Avengers work together, Moon Knight prefers to work alone. This quality makes Moon Knight better than Batman. As well as, he is a Billionaire like Batman but still travels in a taxi and searches for crime. Batman may be a master of a better strategy, but Moon Knight has immortality, he has nothing to do with strategy.
Egyptian god Khonsu has brought him to life many times. As far as anger is concerned, Moon Knight is 1000 times more aggressive than Batman. In the comics books and Black Widow, we have seen that Taskmaster can copy the style of any superhero. But when Taskmaster encountered Moon Knight in the comics book, he started begging Moon Knight for his life. Moon night is unpredictable in front of villains like Taskmaster. Here the matter of strategy is different. Where Batman lives on social values, Moon Knight is the exact opposite. It has nothing to do with social values, if you have committed a crime and encounter Moon Knight, game over.
On this basis we can say how Moon Knight Is Better Than DC’s Batman.
