BARE BONES (Written by Rey):
Street crim 8-Ball discovers his cell mate is none other than Moon Knight, and it immediately sends chills not only through the criminal’s mind, but to many of those incarcerated within the Myrmidon.
8-Ball tries to ingratiate himself to some of the local gangs such as the Wrecking Crew and Enforcers, but to no avail.
Upon being confronted by Captain Confusion, 8-Ball is saved by his cell mate who reminds the notorious captain where he got his scar from. Much to 8-Ball’s relief, he is saved but it’s not long before Moon Knight is stopped by a guard and taken to the showers to ‘get clean’.
There Moon Knight is met by Capt Confusion and his gang, but Moon Knight makes short work of the blood thirsty crew and as he walks out of the shower block, he asks the guard if he can take part in the underground fight scene.
Man Mountain Marko is the reigning champ, and it’s after a slew of fights with other contestants, that Moon Knight is able to set up a match again the man they call a mountain.
The event arrives and Moon Knight and Man Mountain Marko engage in a brutal battle – both landing blows and drawing blood. As Moon Knight is struck down, he reminisces about a recent chat he had at the Midnight mission before the event of DEvil’s Reign. It’s Marko’s wife and she sought help from Mr Knight as she was afraid for her daughter’s safety. Mr Knight reassures her that he will protect her and her daughter and cutting back to present day, Moon Knight rises from the floor and viciously attacks Man Mountain Marko…letting him know that his intention of getting caught by Fisk and getting thrown into prison was all a plan to get at Man Mountain Marko.
Marko is beaten but not before he threatens to still go after his family once he is freed from prison.
‘I said I’d never let you see them again’…and with that, Moon Knight gouges the eyes of Marko, rendering him blind…
Prisoners and wardens alike are horrified and after a brief battle, the guards take Moon Knight to solitary confinement…
Locked up, Moon Knight chats with 8-Ball, who is on cleaning detail just outside the cell. Moon Knight vows that although the Avengers and the likes of the Fantastic Four do not like him…they essentially need him – a wild dog – if they plan to take the fight to Fisk to reclaim the city.
