In this week’s episode of Marvel Studios’ latest series Moon Knight, audiences were introduced to Mr. Knight. Fans can now bring Mr. Knight home with two newly-revealed Funko Pop! figures, which include a regular version of the character and a glow-in-the-dark version that’s exclusive to Walmart. A Pop! figure for the nefarious yet philosophical cult-like leader Arthur Harrow (portrayed by Ethan Hawke) is also on the way.
Pre-orders will be available for these new releases today from a variety of retailers.
Two Funko Pop! figures of Marc Spector in the show’s Moon Knight costume, along with a keychain, were revealed last week.
Moon Knight follows Steven Grant (portrayed by Oscar Isaac), a mild-mannered man who lives a mundane life, plagued by blackouts and mysterious memories of a life somehow separate from his own. After one fateful encounter, Steven discovers that he has Dissociative Identity Disorder and shares a body with Marc Spector — a former mercenary and the ruthless avatar of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon and vengeance. With their enemies converging upon them, Steven must learn how to adapt to this revelation and work with Marc. With other godly motives at play, the two must navigate their complex identities amid a deadly battle played out among the powerful gods of Egypt.
In the comics, Mr. Knight first appeared in the 2014 Moon Knight run by writer Warren Ellis and artist Declan Shalvey. Mr. Knight was another one of Marc Spector’s personas, serving as a well-dressed investigator with a more calculated approach to fighting crime (as opposed to Moon Knight).

The show took a different approach, because Mr. Knight is to Steven Grant what Moon Knight is to Marc Spector. The one that appears depends on who is in control of the body at any given time. Steven refused to hand control of the body over to Marc after the debacle with Arthur and his people, so when Layla and Khonshu were encouraging him to “summon the suit,” Mr. Knight is what Steven eventually managed to conjure in order to break his fall out the window (though Marc wasn’t impressed with the “psycho Colonel Sanders” getup). Mr. Knight isn’t nearly as suave and capable as his comic counterpart, but he does still have his batons!
