Moon Knight #191
Things are not going so well for Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight. He has been trying to come to terms with his multiple personalities, but he has recently found out that one of them has fathered a child with his long time love interest, Marlene. On top of all of that, his new enemy, the Sun King, has captured Marlene, leaving Marc to alone to protect his newfound daughter, Diatrice. So, to bond with his new daughter, they start talking about music…
Diatrice asks Marc if he likes Katy Perry, and in perfect marvel fashion, Marc asks if she likes Dazzler. He then proceeds to break out his old Dazzler records and they bond over her awesome music.
This panel is great because it evokes my actual memories of my parents sharing their older music on records with me when I was younger. Also, little ties like this are fantastic because they subtly tie the Marvel Universe together. So, for the love of classic music and bonding with family, this panel wins the honor of being this week’s Panel of the Week!
