Marvel's First Moon Knight From 1,000,000 BC (Spoilers)
Moon Knight time! But first, it's getting closer to a new multi-timezone and timeline endgame for the Avengers, with a reminder that for some the number 616 isn't just a number of the Marvel Universe reality. While 666 is called the "number of the beast" in most manuscripts of The Book of Revelation, a fragment of the earliest papyrus of the New Testament gives the number as 616. Which, you know, comes up in current Avengers, with the Avengers of One Million BC
In Avengers #35 a few years ago, we got to see a primitive caveman Moon Knight from One Million Years BC, fighting the Avengers of that time.
While the rest of the Avengers 1,000,000 BC have made repeated appearances in Avengers and spin-off titles since, this earliest version of the Moon Knights was not among them.
That changes today with Avengers #62, as the Moondragon of that time recruits the Moon Knight into the new iteration of the team. Not that he has become any more verbose.
And it's time for those one million years to be drawn together somewhat. Iron Man aside, it has been a moment that has been a long time coming.
Time for the big crossover! Avengers Assemble to come – and never has the phrase spanned such a timeframe.
