Moon Knight: Marvel's Batman?

Is Moon Knight Marvel's version of Batman?

Moon Knight is one of my favorite Marvel heroes, but he has never gotten the kind of respect that he deserves. When you mention Moon Knight to a lot of comic book fans, you will more than likely hear them say,"Eh, he's just a ripoff of Batman," at first glance, that seems true but there are MAJOR differences.

Both Bruce Wayne and Marc Spector have the mansions, butlers, and dual identities with lots of cool crime fighting gadgets, but that is pretty much the comparison ends. Bruce Wayne grew up with money and used that money to fight crime. Marc Spector was a mercenary and killed people for money, died and was brought back to life by the moon god,Konshu and fights crime in his name. Oh, he also suffers from multiple personality disorder.

Now, let's talk about whether he should appear in movies or on television. I think he is one of the few characters that I think could work well in either medium. I would love to see him start out on television though. If Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. show is a hit, I would like to see Marvel launch a show that features characters like Werewolf by Night, Man-Thing, Moon Knight and others.

Is Moon Knight Marvel's version of Batman? I don't think so, but share your thoughts in the usual place.
