Moon Knight has been fighting the evil “Secret Empire” (such a generic name), and his little buddy Midnight has been kidnapped and made evil by them—he’s basically turned into the Moon Knight version of Bucky/Winter Soldier.
While looking for him, he meets a new villain named Chainsaw.
He rides a motorcycle and cuts people up with a chainsaw, and leads a white supremacist gang called Praetorian Brotherhood. And gets beat by Moon Knight.
A bunch of other stuff happens with the Secret Empire, but there are so many evil groups with that name that I simply refuse to get into the details. Dixon’s run ends with Midnight as a villain and a new character, Chainsaw, who will only be around for a short while—in Chuck Dixon’s other books.
I like Chuck Dixon as a writer, but in appropriate doses. Having him write Moon Knight and Punisher all overlapping is just too much of the super-macho, guns-and-ninjas stuff.
