Khonshu is the night god of the moon and also the god of revenge. Because he is unable to enter the earth plane, he chooses a champion who works as his avatar to be guided by his will. This warrior is known as the Moon Knight.
Its name means traveller, something that seems to be linked to the moon traveling through the sky during the night. In ancient Egypt, he was famous for his healing powers, something he uses to keep his warrior alive.
In prehistory, Khonshu took offense at not being called into the first Avengers lineup, choosing a mortal to become the moon knight and antagonizing the group while forming a cult to his name. He is represented by a hawk wearing a moon above his head.
