The latest outing of Marvel on Disney Plus introduces a new character in the long roster of heroes they have released. Moon Knight is fast approaching with Steven Grant and Marc Spencer in knots trying to find out what is happening. As the titular character graces the small screens, here is the plot of the upcoming show.

What is the Plot of Moon Knight?

The official synopsis of the Moon Knight is as follows:

"Moon Knight follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector.”

From the synopsis itself, Moon Knight will be following Steven Grant who seems to be your average employee working at a gift shop, however, at night, he struggles as he could not draw the line between his dream and his waking life, having memories of a different life whilst being in a different body. To his surprise, when he received a call, the lady called him Marc and asked him if he is alright.

Steven, not having any idea what happened, got curious. Later, he found out that he has a dissociative identity disorder and his other persona, Marc Spector, is his total opposite. Marc is a mercenary and Steven’s memories of a different life is his. As he tries to reconcile what is happening to him, he traces it back to where it could possibly come from and he finds himself in the middle of a cult led by Dr. Arthur Harrow.
