as a villain hired by the Committee to capture the title character for them
in a two-part story continuing in #33 where he eventually has a change of heart
and helps the Werewolf escape, briefly fighting alongside him,
Moon Knight later returned in the form of a demonic apparition
taking on his appearance in #37 (March 1976) to battle the Werewolf once again,
Editors Marv Wolfman and Len Wein liked the character,
prompting them to grant him a solo spot in Marvel Spotlight #28–29 (June/August 1976),
again written by Doug Moench with art by Don Perlin,
the story, along with the Bill Mantlo-penned Spectacular Spider-Man
#22 and #23 (September/October 1978),
recast Moon Knight as a hero and his villainous first appearance
as a cover to infiltrate the Committee,
subsequent appearances came in Marvel Two-in-One #52,
written by Steven Grant with art by Jim Craig and The Defenders #47–51,
which had him briefly join the Defenders during their war against the Zodiac Cartel

a CIA project designed to control its agents' minds,
fed up with the CIA, Marc became a mercenary
