Rejecting his father rabbinical teachings, Marc Spector craved material possessions and resolved to use his physical talents to gain them.

After a stint as a heavy-weight boxer, Spector joined the Marines with the goal of eventually becoming a mercenary. Joining with the mercenary leader Roaul Bushman, Spector fought in conflicts throughout the third world.

When Bushman brutally murdered an archaeologist during the robbery of ancient treasures, Spector challenged his commander. Bested by Bushman and beaten near to death, Spector is left to the dessert scavengers.

Staggering towards civilization, Spector collapsed a short distance from the archaeological site. Discovered by adherents of an ancient Egyptian religion, his dead body was lay before the statue of the moon god Khonshu. Resurrected, Spector became the moon god's agent of vengeance known as the Moon Knight.
