Imaginary issues of Moon Knight vol 5

Post by robfj » Wed Jul 22, 2015 12:54 pm

Moon Knight v5 is the 1999 4-issue High Strangers limited series. Moon Knight v6 is the 2006 regular series.

In the MCP Search system MK5 is named Moon Knight vol 5 (High Strangers), but it shows up with extra issues 7, 14-15, 17-19, 21-22. These issues in the database contain very few characters, not even Moon Knight himself. And these characters are missing from the equivalent MK6 issues. The obvious assumption is that a slip of the brain or keyboard put 5 instead of 6 on some character entries, inventing new MK5 issues.

The main victim is Iron Man who should be in MK6 14-15, 17-19, 21-22. He's also in MK6 23-25 (and some earlier flashbacks) but these are correctly identified.

Buck Richlen and Michael Bloomberg get dragged into the mythical MK5 17 with him.

The odd one out is MK5 7 where it's Spider-Man who makes the misidentified guest appearance.

The changes should be:-

IRON MAN/ANTHONY EDWARD "TONY" STARK
