The Bare Bones:

Moon Knight Vol.8 , issue #7 – “ Incarnations: Part 2 of 4”

Marc Spector and Frenchie find themselves in the midst of an all-out intergalactic war with the Space Wolves. Earth has completely fallen, and so the remaining humans who have fled to the moon make one last stand against the wolf onslaught.
During the battle, Marc and Frenchie spot General Lupinar (the leader of the Space Wolves) and decide to engage. In the ensuing battle, the Space Wolves Command Ship appears and as Marc focuses his attention onto General Lupinar, he is struck by a jarring otherworldly sensation.
For a brief second he assumes the role of Jake Lockley and confused, both Marc and his Jake persona are confronted with a collision of sorts. The Moon Knight One jet crashes onto the surface of the moon and as Marc gingerly staggers out, they are not without casualty. Frenchie is dead, but what is more perplexing is that the Moon Jet is now a taxi cab!
Instantaneously, Marc becomes Jake again, and as he still struggles to gain composure after the crash, he spots Gena’s Diner and makes his way there.
Again, Jake becomes Marc and this time, he’s on the moon, heading towards the moon base.
Suddenly, General Lupinar appears in his fighter jet and before Marc can stop him, Lupinar crashes into the moon base, with the Wolf Command Ship close behind.
Marc finally arrives to the base, spots Lupinar and the two engage in a savage fight. Marc’s heart sinks as the Command Ship also arrives, off loading an army of Space Wolves which easily overcome the defenceless human inhabitants. Marc can only watch as each human is either killed or turned, and Lupinar takes advantage of Marc’s distraction, and swiftly bites him on the neck, intent on turning him into the one thing he hates.
As if from a nightmare, Jake promptly awakes and finds himself next to Gena’s Diner, with his taxi cab intact. Convincing himself that his hallucinations of space wolves and moon bases are a result of him crashing his cab previously, Jake wanders inside Gena’s Diner, to gain some respite.
Shockingly, Jake is confronted with what looks to be a massacre – numerous patrons, and Gena herself lie dead in a bloodied mess. A shocked Jake can only stare as the police arrive, pointing guns and screaming for Marc to surrender!

Moon Knight Vol 1, issue #14 – “Stained Glass Scarlet”

In a rundown church in the South Bronx, a lone woman drifts within, tortured by memories. She is Stained Glass Scarlet, and amongst the solitude, she contemplates her next move involving a recent prison escapee, Mad Dog Fasinera.
As Steven and Marlene enjoy a cultured evening, their night is cut short by news on the radio of Mad Dog Fasinera in a shoot out with police.
Moon Knight springs into action and it’s not long before he spots the gunfire from the Mooncoptor.
Moon Knight manages to subdue the bank robbers, but Mad Dog manages to escape, killing one of his own men along the way.
Having evaded Moon Knight’s grasp, Moon Knight decides to track down two of the other bank robbers who also managed to escape. They lead him to an abandoned store, but Moon Knight is surprised to see a Woman in Red appear, and enter the store as well.
The robbers are also surprised that their secret safehouse is compromised and are stunned that the Woman in Red knows of it.
Moon Knight intervenes and makes short work of the criminals, but is so intrigued by Stained Glass Scarlet – the Woman in Red – that he is compelled to follow.
Moon Knight confronts her in the abandoned church and Stained Glass Scarlet tells of her origin – how she was a nun, before meeting a reformed criminal Vince Fasinera. How they married but Vince returned to his old ways, neglected his son and ultimately returning to a life of crime; how his last big bank job ends with his death and the mysterious disappearance of all the bank money; and finally, how Joe, left without a father, grows resentful and ultimately criminal, abandoning his mother.
As Moon Knight reflects on this sad Tale, Joe ‘Mad Dog’ Fasinera appears, determined to retrieve his father’s hidden loot from Stained Glass Scarlet.
She pleads to her son that she is all he needs, and Moon Knight valiantly attempts to diffuse the situation. Moon Knight is shot, but in the melee, Stained Glass Scarlet pulls a gun on her own son. Stained Glass Scarlet makes the hardest decision that a mother never should and is forced to kill her own son.
In a final twist, as Mad Dog clutches at the bell rope, the bell sounds his death knell, but also reveals the hidden stash which had been hidden within the church bell for all these years.
