Moon Knight has been kicking bad guys around the Marvel Universe since he first appeared all the way back in 1975. Since that time, he has gone on to become an incredibly popular character, and he's finally getting the recognition he deserves in the form of his own series on Disney+. If you've ever asked yourself, who is Moon Knight? Or you're not too familiar with Moon Knight, that's okay because there's a lot to read before you watch the show. Moon Knight has been described as Marvel's answer to Batman but features a guy with multiple personality disorder whose powers come and go with the lunar cycles. He's strange, interesting, and one of the best street-level Marvel superheroes in the Marvel Universe.

Because he's been around for decades, there are tons of comic books, great stories, graphic novels, trade paperbacks, comic book issues, story arcs, storylines, and one-shot books about Moon Knight, making it hard to determine which is the best of Moon Knight's greatest adventures. This list attempts the impossible by narrowing the best down to the top 20.

Check out the stories listed below, and if you see your favorite, vote it up. Then check back to see which of these comics is the best Moon Knight story ever told!

    From The Dead

    Story Found In: Moon Knight #1-6

    One of Moon Knight's most interesting traits is the fact that he is afflicted with Multiple Personality Disorder. In "From the Dead," his three personalities are explored, and the question of whether or not Marc Spector is Moon Knight, or is he another person entirely is asked and possibly answered.

    The story has Spector hunting ghosts, investigating an experiment involving a sleep study, which is driving its participants insane, and he even heads to a mushroom graveyard planet. There's a mob engagement and pretty much everything is thrown his way in this insane tale of Moon Knight!

      Lunatic

      Story Found In: Moon Knight #1-5

      It's an established fact that Moon Knight is a bit strange, and even though Marc Spector has more than one personality, including Steven Grant and Jake Lockley, he's done a good job protecting the streets of New York City for years... or has he?

      Uncertainty and doubt creep in when Marc wakes up in an insane asylum without any of his powers. Not only that, but he also has a medical history going back years, and each of his multiple personalities come into question. Was it all happening in Marc's head, or is he really the superhero known as Moon Knight?

        Birth And Death

        Story Found In: Moon Knight #10-14

        How much does anyone really know about Moon Knight and his origin? In this story titled, "Birth And Death," the origin and secret history of Marc Spector is spelled out. Marc may have been born in Chicago, but what about his alter ego, Steven Grant? Does he hail from the Windy City as well, or did he arise elsewhere?

        Moon Knight's particular form of madness finds himself trapped outside of reality itself, but how much of what's happening to him is real? Is he as delusional as he sometimes thinks, and is everything he's done over the years been little more than a figment of his own fractured imagination? All of the answers to his questions are posed here, but how much will he truly learn?

          The Bottom

          Story Found In: Moon Knight #1-6

          Knoshu, the God of the Moon and Vengeance, may have saved Marc Spector's life, but what a god gives, a god can take away! As Moon Knight, Marc has learned to use his powers for good, but gods don't stay placated by the whims and activities of mortals for long, and Marc has to learn this lesson the hard way.

          Once his powers are taken away, Marc spirals down a pit of depression and despair (not to mention madness!). The journey enlightens him as to the reliance he's had on his god-given abilities, and he must set out to prove himself. Will Knoshu head and heed his prayer, or will Marc languish in a pit of depression leading to his destruction and insanity?
