Moon Knight and Sailor Moon Get Epic Crossover In New Art – Screen Rant

Moon Knight and Sailor Moon cross over in stunning art that gives the titular anime hero her own pink costume.
In an epic crossover featuring one of Marvel Comics’ darkest heroes and one of anime’s biggest stars, Moon Knight and Sailor Moon become one hero in an incredible piece of art. Artist Mingjue Helen Chen shared their take on Moon Knight and Sailor Moon crossing over into one hero, and the result is absolutely spellbinding. Sailor Moon gets her own pink suit as she stands in front of the crescent moon in the image.
Few characters are more connected to the Moon than Moon Knight and Sailor Moon in pop culture. Moon Knight is the avatar of the Egyptian god Khonshu, resurrected by the powerful deity after dying. As Moon Knight, he has many moon-based accessories and costume details, while his powers have been connected with the Moon itself. Recently, when the Moon was destroyed, Moon Knight was severely weakened, showcasing his connection to it. Meanwhile, Sailor Moon is the Guardian of Love and Justice and one of the Sailor Guardians, whose elemental powers make her the Moon Princess and connect her to Queen Serenity.

On their Twitter account, artist and illustrator Mingjue Helen Chen shared their incredible combination version of Moon Knight and Sailor Moon. The crossover image features Usagi Tsukino, aka Sailor Moon standing on top of a building while she looks back with her glowing eyes. The costume shows what Sailor Moon might look like as the avatar of Khonshu, as she sports a mask and superhero costume wrapped with pink bandages, while she has a long flowing cape. The look is chalked full of fantastic details, including keeping Sailor Moon’s long-flowing blonde hair, while she has gold details throughout the costume like Moon Knight.
The only thing I think of when I watch Moon Knight. The crossover no one asked for. pic.twitter.com/U17JoQTzvK
While the artist captions the awesome crossover image with “the crossover nobody asked for,” it’s not the first time Moon Knight and Sailor Moon have been combined in a single piece of art. Dan Hipp shared his “Moonlighting” version of the Marvel hero last month, which featured a nod to Sailor Moon. However, in this case, the focus is much more on making the heroes one singular hero, and the result is fantastic.
Moon Knight and Sailor Moon might be two totally different heroes, but their connection to the moon is integral in their characterizations. While it’s safe to assume Marvel’s Moon Knight and Sailor Moon won’t crossover in official art anytime soon, the unexpected crossover makes for a great design that is a great “What If?” We’d read that comic/manga crossover.
