Ragman and Moon Knight


Moon Knight is one of those Marvel Character that I have been waiting for decades to make the leap to live action.  The superhero with multiple personalities gimmick could make for a very cool story, but I think the costume may be tough to pull off.  All-white with shadows hitting just the right places looks cool n the page but I can imagine it's a tough look to accomplish on screen.  Maybe an animated series would be better?

His recent costumes from Ellis’ run would be easier, I’d wager.

i imagine Ragman's costume would not be an easy one to do either, the reason for the way it looked on the CW's Arrow...
...love this cover, Ross, two of my favorite characters...
...are they perhaps teaming up against Mark Millar's Nemesis who also wears all white???

Awesome cover, Ross! Very striking! I always thought that Ragman was a character with a great look and a lot of mostly unrealized potential. And I prefer the original version to the current "cloth Golem" version.

This is one of those team-ups that I could really see happening.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Moon Knight cartoon. But, it took Michael Keaton in the 1989 Bat-film to make an animated version of the Dark Knight permanently popular. So, a similar live-action prelude might be necessary (if not obligatory)!

Maybe Jean-Paul "Frenchie" Duchamp (Marc Spector's version of Q) could invent some kind of photo-refractive force field to make the bright white areas of the costume a little less conspicuous. Similar to that used by the Predator(s) and that one-shot Marvel villain, the Blank.

I agree with TJW about this cover: very powerful indeed! I'm only vaguely familiar with either of these characters, and I'd be interested to see how the story develops.

As for the costume, I could see using a "dirty white" such as that sported by White Canary on DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Maybe the producers could test the waters first by giving the character a guest shot on one of the Netflix series.

I started thinking about teaming up Moon Knight with Batman (the Dark Knight), and saw that they've shared two covers already (#318 and #683). I think it might be time to revisit their conflict, possibly with the Mad Hatter pulling some strings.

Two Jewish heroes in one team-up!

I approve.

In my opinion, Brave and the Bold (and DC Comics Presents) worked best when they teamed Batman with obscure heroes i was unfamiliar with (Ragman, Rose & the Thorn, Metamorpho) than with the popular ones. It was usually a turn off for me when I saw a popular hero like the Flash or Green Lantern. I could see them in the pages if JLA if I wanted. I came to B&B to meet other less knowns!
