Bruce Wayne’s History

bruce wayne comics

The origin of Gotham City’s most eligible bachelor and stoic protector has gone through many variations since his conception. Our vigilantes origin was once very different from the one we commonly see portrayed today. Bruce Wayne’s story didn’t always begin on that one fateful night, when one of Gotham’s richest families, the Wayne’s befell a tragic event. It was later (Detective Comics #33, Nov. 1939)

detective comics 33 1939

that we found out that the driving force behind Batman’s one man war on crime was that his parents Thomas and Martha Wayne were shot and killed right in front of their 8-year-old son Bruce. Originally Bruce Wayne’s story started out as a crime fighter who the reader was made aware of was a day time bachelor and socialite which first appeared in Detective Comics #27 (cover May 1939, release date Mar. 1939).

The playboy, philanthropist and owner of Wayne Enterprises war on crime eventually became a battle against the criminally insane as well. Between Batman dawning the cape and cowl and locking up some of Gotham’s most manic minds Bruce swore an oath that he would spend the remainder of his life waging a war on crime to avenge the death of his parents. Over the next several years, Bruce at the age of 14, began his global sojourn, attending courses at Cambridge, the Sorbonne, and other European universities. However, he never stayed long and would often drop out after one semester. Beyond academia, Wayne successfully acquired various “practical” skills. While abroad, he studied and received training in multiple martial arts under various instructors and in different countries, man-hunting under Frenchman Henri Ducard, stealth and reconnaissance under the Japanese ninja Kirigi and other certified shinobi, hunting under the African Bushman (the Ghost Tribes of the Ten-Eyed Brotherhood, among others), hand-to hand combat under the tutelage of Ted Grant, a World Champion Boxer and David Cain, one of the world’s premier assassins; traditional healing disciplines under Nepalese monks and even ventriloquism under skilled practitioners. Bruce was also trained in archery by Oliver Queen. His knowledge of so many varied disciplines has made Wayne an unconventional and unpredictable individual. At age 20, he attempted to join the FBI, but after learning about its regulations and conduct, Wayne deducted that he would never be able to completely oppose crime while working within the legal system. Bruce made his way back to Gotham and determined that he needed a disguise in order to strike terror into the hearts of criminals. At that exact moment a bat burst through the window inspiring Bruce to make that his symbol and thus the Batman was born.

In time after the birth of the Batman and several cases, Batman had formed relationships with Commissioner Jim Gordon, his trustworthy butler Alfred Pennyworth and another orphan boy, Dick Grayson who later became his sidekick, Robin. He eventually found the murderer of his parents and small-time crime boss named Joe Chill, and snuck aboard Chill’s boat by disguising himself as a seagull underwater to avoid detection. Upon cornering Chill he removes his mask and revealed that his was the young boy left orphaned by Chill. Against killing, Batman let Chill go but told him he would be watching his every move and would be there to arrest him when me made a mistake. Chill so frightened went to his fellow thugs and tried to get their help, but upon learning that Chill killed Batman’s parents they blamed him for the creating of Batman and killed him. The death of Chill brought closure to Batman but soon the scenery of Gotham City changed giving rise to super powered and super sadistic villains.

Two of Batman’s most notable and notorious villains, were introduced in Batman #1 (Spring 1940), The Joker and the Catwoman. This cemented the Batman that we know and love today that as a normal human can overcome the two most polarizing opposites of Batman but which draw out the most human desires and parts of him as a person. This lead to a long list of characters, whom like Batman have tragic back stories but also give him an interesting rogues gallery

that provided something new and different to the comics genre. Batman has accomplished many great feats such as defeating Bane who broke his back, he has also taken on Gotham City’s secret Court of Owls and their avenger the Talon. From taken on his most intellectual rival and leader of the League of Assassins, Ra’s Al Ghul, to defeating Superman, to killing Darksied.

Batman time and time again has proven himself to be the ultimate hero, so how will this warrior prove himself in today’s battle. He has taken down mortal, immortals, aliens and mystics, Batman continues to prove it is not the suit or the powers that make the man but the man inside them that give them character and can represent a symbol that lives throughout the ages.

Batman’s Powers/Abilities

batman fighting

There are a plethora of superheroes without superpowers but of them all the Batman relies on “his own scientific knowledge, detective skills, and athletic prowess.” Regarded as one of the world’s greatest detectives, Batman has tackled not only his own super powered rogues gallery but almost the entire DC Comics universe. During Grant Morrison’s first storyline in JLA, Superman describes Batman as “the most dangerous man on Earth,” able to defeat a team of super-powered aliens all by himself in order to rescue his imprisoned teammates.

Through intense training, specialized diet, and biofeedback treatments, Batman represented the pinnacle of human physical prowess. His physical attributes exceeded that of any Olympic level athlete that has ever competed. His strength, speed, stamina, agility, reflexes and coordination are at peak human perfection. Batman has comeback from a broken back to defeat the very person that crippled him.

Marc Spector’s History

marc spector

A man with so many alias and personalities just trying to keep up with not only hurts our heads but also this heroes as well. As much as people think that Moon Knight was Marvel’s answer and version of Batman, Marc Spector is not. In the original run, Moon Knight first made his appearance in Werewolf By Night #32 (Aug. 1975),

werewolf by night 32 1975

he was such a big hit with readers that he returned to guest start in various comics such as: Marvel Spotlight #28 (June 1976), Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #23 (Oct. 1978), Marvel Two-In-One: The Thing and Moon Knight Vol. 1, No. 52 (Jan. 1st, 1979), The Defenders Vol. 1 #49 (1972) that lead to a backup run feature in The Hulk! #12 (Dec. 1978) and then finally got his own solo comic series in 1980 (Moon Knight #1, Nov. 1st, 1980).

moon knight 1 1980

Marc Spector was born in Chicago, IL and as an adult he trains to be a professional championship boxer, a marine and a mercenary. Through his exploits he becomes a highly skilled combatant and befriends the French pilot Jean-Paul DuChamp, whom he calls “Frenchie“. While working for the African mercenary, Raoul Bushman in Egypt, his group stumbles upon an archaeological dig whose crew includes Dr. Peter Alraune and his daughter Marlene. The dig had uncovered an ancient temple where artifacts included a statue of the Egyptian Moon God Khonshu. Bushman intent on looting the dig and is later found out by Dr. Alraune whom he was to later kill. Spector challenges Bushman to personal combat in response to Alraune’s murder. He is defeated by Bushman and left to die in the sub-zero temperatures of the desert night. Roaming Egyptians who worship the ancient Egyptian gods find Spector and carry him to their temple. Helpless before the statue of Khonshu, Spector’s heart stops. Khonshu appears to him in a vision, offering Spector a second chance at life if he becomes the god’s avatar on Earth. Spector awakens, wraps himself with the silver shroud that covers Khonshu’s statue, and again confronts Bushman.

This time he defeats Bushman and returns to America with Marlene Alraune, Frenchie, and the statue of Khonshu. Deciding to become a crimefighter, Spector creates a silver cloaked costume, based on the silver shroud, and becomes the Moon Knight.

After his return to the United States, Spector invests the money that he had accumulated as a mercenary and develops a small fortune. To distance himself from his mercenary past, he creates the identity of millionaire entrepreneur Steven Grant, using this identity to purchase a spacious estate and walk among the high rollers and elites of New York City. To remain in contact with the street and criminal element, he also creates the identity of taxicab driver Jake Lockley and has acquired civilian allies such as Bertrand Crawley and Gena Landers and her sons.

With four personalities (Spector, Gram, Lockley and Moon Knight) Marc had a mental breakdown and was diagnosis with multiple personality disorder. After creating his costume, vehicles and gadgets, Frenchie posed as a French business man and made contacts with the criminal organization the Committee. Frenchie convinces The Committee to hire Spector and have him hunt down Jack Russell a.k.a. Werewolf By Night. Frenchie tells The Committee that they will name their new mercenary Moon Knight and will equip him with a costume and weapons (made of silver) he created to capture his prey. Moon Knight captures the Werewolf for the Committee, but then frees him and halts the Committee’s plans, after finding out they wanted to use Jack as their personal weapon.

The Committee not being happy with Moon Knight hires Bushman to attack Moon Knight once again and cripples him. Even though his legs are broken in a fit of rage he carves off Bushman’s face like Joker in Death of the Family.

Moon Knight left unable to fight crime burns through his fortune by purchasing pain killers and anti-psychotics. The Egyptian God Khonshu not being pleased with the actions of his “Knight of vengeance” give Marc a glimmer of hope as one of the companies he owned had made a major technological breakthrough. Once again wealthy Marc starts to get his life together and start physical therapy for his legs and after he has risen from the ashes finds out it was Khonshu who orchestrated everything to remind him of who and what he is.

In Marvel Now: Moon Knight #1 (April 13th, 2016), Moon Knight has two major personas; Moon Knight and Mr. Knight. Mr. Knight dresses in an all white business suit, gloves and a mask. Mr. Knight unlike Moon Knight consults the NYPD and deals with common thugs.

moon knight 1

In this comic Marc Spector (a.k.a. Moon Knight/Jake Lockley/Steven Grant) has been fighting criminals and keeping New York City safe for year…. or so he thinks! When he wakes up in an insane asylum with no powers and a lifetime’s worth of medical records, his whole identity (identities) are called into question. Something is wrong, but is that something Marc Spector himself can handle. Writer Jeff Lemire and artist Greg Smallwood are calling everything we know about Moon Knight into question and has our hero stuck between realities trying to figure out what is real and what isn’t.

moon knight

Moon Knight has worked with Spider-Man, Daredevil, The Secret Avengers, Avengers, West Cost Avengers, The Defenders, Marvel Knights, Heroes For Hire and many more through his time as a hero. Moon Knight has forged his way into Marvel Comics as a lethal Superhero that disposes of injustice.

Moon Knight’s Powers/Abilities 

moonknight fighting

As a testament to the human brain Moon night’s state of mind has always caused his “Powers and Abilities from Konhshu” to come into question, as he himself, at times, is not a reliable source. It’s been stated that he may suffer from a madness so powerful it can only be described as magic. Over the course of his life as a boxer, U.S. Marine, mercenary, and costumed superhero, Marc Spector has become an expert at hand-to-hand combat techniques and various martial arts. He is an Olympic-level athlete and a skilled acrobat and gymnast, and excels as a combat strategist. The list of his abilities, powers do not fall short of his opponent today:

Powers: 

  • Expert detective
  • Split Personalities
  • Moon’s Might
  • Accelerated Healing
  • Telepathic Immunity
  • Adaptive Personality
  • Pain Resistance
  • Fear Inducing
  • Increased strength, endurance, and agility depending on the lunar cycle
  • Currently, Spector claims no superhuman powers.

Abilities:

  • Skilled Detective
  • Interrogation Expert
  • Export Pilot
  • Expert Marksman
  • Weapons Master
  • Master Martial Artist

Weapons: 

  • Crescent Darts
  • Truncheon
  • Silver Coated Cestus
  • Katana
  • Long Bow
  • Brass Knuckles with spikes
  • Three-Section Bo Staff
  • Tripwire guns
  • Mechanical Bracelets (replicate Spider-Man’s webshooters, Captain America’s Energy Shield & Wolverine’s retractable claws)

Ancient Egyptian Weapons (Khonshu Presence):

  • Golden Ankh
  • Golden Scarab Darts
  • Ivory Boomerang
  • Throwing Irons
  • Golden Axe

Body Armor and Protective Vestments:

  • Adamantium Armor
  • Carbondanium Armor
  • Bulletproof Kevlar
  • Two-Way Radio in Cowl
  • Cape (functions as Parachute or paraglide)
  • Anti-Ghost Vestments

Vehicles:

  • Angelwing
  • Mooncopter
  • Moon-Themed Motorcycle
  • White Stretch Limousine (as Mr. Knight)

Weaknesses:

  • Brain damage: While it was initially believed Marc suffered from dissociative identity disorder, it was determined that the different personas he has developed throughout his life are a consequence of having become Khonshu’s avatar. Khonshu is said to have four aspects; Pathfinder, Embracer, Defender, and the Watcher of overnight travelers. Spector cycles through these aspects, and his brain applies identities to them in order to explain them. In essence, Marc’s mind has been “colonized” by Khonshu, and the different personalities Marc displays are a way to cope with the damage.

The Caped Crusaders Quarrel (Batman Vs Moon Knight)

batman vs moon knight

It’s time for the conclusion of the battle between our two night driven caped crusaders. As we make our way into battle, two factors play a key role in deciding the victor. Mental Stability and who has prepared greater Contingencies will make or break today’s champion. An important note for this battle is  that Moon Knight will have all his powers against Batman. Again we all know that having superpowers doesn’t mean anything and both of today’s combatants have taken down super powered baddies with and without powers. (As the dialogue comes into play you have to read Batman in the voice of Kevin Conroy (or your favorite voice actor version of Batman) and Moon Knight as Steve Blum, the only voice that could combat Kevin Conroy’s)

Strength:

Now before we get into the battle, both Batman and Moon Knight have a hefty amount of abilities and powers, let’s give them actual context to the list above before things start to heat up. We know Batman is strong but how strong? In terms of brute strength, Batman is one of the strongest humans alive. He can break steel chains and cuffs, support a ceiling that’s weighed over 1000 lbs, bend steel metal bars with his hands. Batman even punched a SWAT officer through a brick wall. He utilizes his strength/power so effectively, that a near-meta such as Deathstroke comments that Batman “hits harder than most beings with superhuman strength.” During his exercise regimes, Batman regularly bench-presses at least 1000 Ibs. Using highly effective muscle control, Batman can apply near superhuman force in his physical attacks, able to overpower the Venom enhanced Bane and Killer Croc. Through intense training, specialized diet, and biofeedback treatments, The Batman represented the pinnacle of human physical prowess. His physical attributes exceeded that of any Olympic level athlete that has ever competed. His strength, speed, stamina, agility, reflexes, and coordination are at the peak of human potential. Batman began his physical and mental conditioning when he was 11 and then intense physical training and weight lifting at age 12. He had mastered full body control by the time he was 18. Wayne abstains entirely from drinking alcohol, though he presented Bruce Wayne, his alter ego, as a borderline alcoholic (he created this illusion by drinking ginger ale and pretending it was champagne). Batman’s refusal to drink was directly linked to keeping his body in its absolute best. Bruce Wayne, since the age of 15, has created a strict diet to enable his body to develop and operate at its most proficient, along with biofeedback treatments (using portable/non portable machines to stimulate muscles to contraction). Batman being able to perform amazing physical feats is due to his superior physique. He engaged in an intensive regular regimen of rigorous exercise (including aerobics, weight lifting, gymnastics, and simulated combat) to keep himself in peak condition, and has often defeated opponents whose size, strength, or other powers greatly exceeded his own. He has spent his entire life in pursuit of physical perfection and has attained it through constant intensive training and determination. Marc Spector on the other hand is a Olympic-level athlete and a skilled acrobat and gymnast but Spector has the strength of a normal human male of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise. He could formerly press lift twice his bodyweight, 450 lbs, but when he lost his powers he continued routinely weightlifting and is likely stronger. According to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #9, at his strongest, under the light of the full moon, he can lift about 2 tons. Moon’s Might takes advantage of Spector’s multiple personalities which cause his glands to constantly produce adrenaline, thereby enhancing his physical strength, speed, reflexes and stamina. This also makes him exceptionally durable in this state.

Martial Arts:

Having strength doesn’t mean anything if you can’t use it, Moon Knight is a former heavyweight boxing champion who underwent intense training as a commando, intelligence operative and mercenary. He is skilled in armed and unarmed combat with training in Boxing, Judo, Savate and Kung Fu; his knowledge is extensive enough that it has been shown that he can use pressure points against his opponents, striking nerve clusters to stun or even instantly incapacitate. On more than one occasion without powers he has fought the Punisher to a stand still. Even though Moon Knightis well versed in many martial arts, special operations and more, Batman is one of the finest human combatants Earth has ever known. He trained in the US for various martial arts for 10 years. He has mastered 127 styles of martial arts including Muay Thai, Escrima, Krav Maga, Capoeira, Savate, Yawyan, Taekwondo, Judo, Jujitsu, Ninjutsu, Kendo, Fencing, Kenjutsu, Kali, Bojutsu, Francombat, Boxing, Kickboxing, Hapkido, Wing Chun, Parkour, Shorin Ryu, Silat, Chin Na, Kyudo, Aikido, Varma Ati, Jeet Kune Do, Shaolin, Ba Gua, Hung Gar, Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Kenpo, and Karate. His primary form of combat is an idiosyncratic admixture of Jujitsu, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Karate, Boxing and Ninjutsu.

Body Armor/Gadgets:

Now that we know the range of their strength and combative abilities let’s look at the equipment hey use. Batman’s Bat-suit is composed of Kevlar and a small percentage of titanium; it is bullet-proof and resistant to most forms of attack (explosions, blunt trauma, falls, etc.) It is also flame-retardant and insulated. The gloves and the boots are reinforced to nullify the impact of punches and kicks. Batman’s gauntlets have retractable metallic blades on their sides. The cape is extremely light and can be used to glide long distances. The cowl is composed in small part by lead, which shields Batman’s face from identification via x-rays. It has also an infrared viewer and auditory sensors. The cowl is outfitted with security systems (aggravating gas, electric blasts, etc.) like the utility belt. The mask is also a transmitter-receiver. Batman keeps most of his personal field equipment in his iconic yellow utility belt. Over the years, it has produced plastic explosives, nerve toxins, batarangs, smoke bombs, a fingerprint kit, a cutting tool, a grappling line-launcher, and a re-breather. Superman also entrusted Batman with a ring made of Kryptonite, should the Man of Steel ever need to be reined in (because of mind-control by a super-villain, etc.). Moon Knight’s silver-white costume includes adamantium, and he acquires an array of high-tech weaponry including an adamantium staff, a truncheon capable of firing a cable line, and gauntlets that fire crescent darts. He has also been depicted using spiked knuckles, worn on the left hand, and a Three-section staff. When he vows never to murder again, he hires Tinkerer to upgrade his gear. He uses a gun that shoots a grappling hook and bolas to knock out villains. Moon Knight’s costume uses carbonadium as armor, and has joint-locking functions, allowing him to support weights far greater than what he can normally lift. Moon Knighuses this feature to support a building from collapsing, then leaves the armor to battle villains in his underwear. Additionally, Moon Knight can ‘suit up’ by use of a remote control device which assembles the individual pieces of his armor onto his body, similar in fashion to Iron Man.

Location

This battle takes place in non other than Gotham City where both challengers have access to the rooftops, alleyways and city streets to access their vehicles.

Gotham City

“Khonshu, is this where it is? Is this the city in which your avatar must exact vengeance?” Moon Knight exclaims as he hovers over Wayne Enterprises in the Angelwing. “Yes, now go and carry out my bidding” Khonshu whispers his commands. “Alfred” Batman calls out. “I’m in position and awaiting your orders, sir”, “Master Bruce, What does this Moon Knight fellow want in Gotham City?” Alfred ask. “I don’t know Alfred, but I’m going to find out.” Batman sternly states. “The data you collected says he suffers from sever multiple personality disorder, o my, and obtains powers from the moon. Should I call Master Grayson in order to assist you sir?” Alfred asks. “No, Dick doesn’t need to fight my battles anymore, Blüdhaven needs its Nightwing. Gotham is mine to protect!” Batman exclaims as he leaps from the Batplane to land upon the Angelwing just seconds after Moon Knight exits.

“I’m only going to ask you this once,” Batman’s voice bellows as he stands atop the aircraft. “What are you doing in my city Moon Knight?” Moon Knight slowly turns around and in a split second throws 4 crescent darts at the tall dark figure. “I’m here because I was chosen, no destiny to be!” Moon Knight yells. As he finishes his sentence Batman’s 4 batarangs bring the crescent darts to a halt. Once the projectiles hit the ground both vigilantes have managed to vanished. As the full moon comes out from behind the clouds of Gotham, Moon Knight springs into action, sprinting out from behind an air conditioning unit. At the same time Batman who had used his grappling hook to conceal himself on the side of the building leaps over and darts toward Moon Knight as fast as he can.

moon knight

“Khonshu I have all the Might of the moon, I will bring him down swiftly.” Says Moon Knight as he jumps in the air. Batman braces himself as simply says “Fire.” As a the batplane launches a small concussive rocket toward Moon Knight right as he is about to strike his advisory, Batman lowers his center of gravity and jumps as the rocket explodes before him. He quickly follows the explosion with a spinning heel kick but as it is about to slice through where the intended target should have landed, out of the smoke a hand grabs his foot and both caped combatants lock eyes with grinding teeth and squinted eyes expressing a beast like rage.

WINNER

As you guys know by now, I am an avid comic book fan and among my top echelon of comic book character royalty, Batman is among the favorites but in the battle is was very hard to decide a winner. I said earlier that the battle would come down to mental stability, contingencies and that was in direct correlation with their martial arts background, strength and armor/gadgets. With those being the perimeters I have to give the battle to Batman. The vehicles, gadgets and armor collectively negate each other with these two, as Gotham as a playground Moon Knight has a slight disadvantage but when it comes to marksmanship and use of gadgets he is a perfect marksmen compared to Batman. When we talk about armor it’s a tie in my eyes from the wide array of materials and suits they use.

Marc Spector, is in constant struggle with reality and his multiple personalities that help him cope with Khonshu using him as an avatar. With the aliases Marc Spector has been (Jake Lockley, Steven Grant, Moon Knight, Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Tony Stark) he is almost always on the fringe of breaking which can affect his powers, whereas Batman has managed to keep his mind intact with 9 alternate personas as well (Matches Malone, Thomas Quigley, Ragman, Detective Hawke, Sir Hemingford Grey, Lester Krutz, Frank Dixon, Gordon Selkirk, and Mr. Fledermaus). The last deciding factor was how each character would come to executing their contingencies, both Marc and Bruce are expert strategist but Batman has an assumed IQ of over 200 and has studied many various fields of evasion, deflection and counter strikes where as Marc bases his strategies on past military and combative training. The one thing  that primarily puts Moon Knight in danger of losing is that he prefers to take a punch rather than dodge one, which was a direct reason Taskmaster doesn’t want to copy or use any of Moon Knight’s combat moves even though they are a highly tailor and extraordinary to any he has ever seen. With these facts and Batman’s intellect I think he finds a way to mentally shatter Moon Knight’s mind and effect the abilities of his powers thus leaving Moon Knight with the average strength of an average male and the abilities of an Olympic, which a far inferior than Batman’s.

In my eyes Batman is the winner, he not only has the higher overall score when we break down categories of Strength, Martial Arts Training, Detective Ability, Will but his intelligence and resourcefulness are among his greatest assets in Batman and far superior  o matter if Moon Knight uses his powers or not.
