Episode 145: Geek Girl Reviews Moon Knight: Dissociative Identity Disorder, Arab Superheroes, and Egyptian Iconography

Marvel’s Moon Knight (available on Disney+) is over and we’re in LOVE. Let’s talk about Dissociative Identity Disorder, the Egyptian pantheon, and the introduction of Marvel’s first Arab (and female!) superhero!

Spoilers Ahead!

We introduce just who the heck this relatively unknown superhero is, compliment Oscar Isaac on his incredible performance, and chat about the basic storyline of Moon Knight.

We also HAVE to note that we’re introduced to the very first Arab superhero, Layla as the Scarlet Scarab, who honestly is such a breath of fresh air. It helps that the director and much of the crew are Egyptian!

Finally, and maybe most importantly, we talk about how Marvel Studies and Oscar Isaac have actually done a pretty spectacular job of accuractly portraining a character with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID).

We both recommend checking out Moon Knight if you haven’t seen it yet!
