Moon Knight wears a hood, so he's a rip off of Spectre? How is Spectre not a Rip off of a Jedi?

So maybe Star Wars ripped off Spectre and moon Knight ripped off Star Wars?!?!?!?

Dude, Robes have been around for thousands of years, which is understandable because it's the easiest all purpose clothing to make.

What are they teaching nowadays?

Moon Knight appeared before the first Star Wars movie(Ep. IV, not The Phantom Menace).

And the hood/cloak thing is a bad arguement. You could say that the Spectre ripped-off the Green Lama.

Exactly. Let's take a look...both..

wealthy alter ego

use lots of gadgets/technology(many similar)

operate primarily at night

have helpful butler(Alfred)/aid(Frenchie)

have had sidekicks(that have died/killed)

are highly skilled fighters

have been members of the flagship team of their universes and it not work out

cape and cowl look.

Now lets do the Spectre.

1: He is an agent of a/the god

2: He is given powers from said god

3: Is sent out to perform Vengence upon the guilty

4: Are both extreamly brutal with little mercy.

But then again this kind of "rip off" if you must can be found in many characters in comix. Spawn is kinda like a cross between ghost rider and venom (not suprising since his creator also created venom)

Moon Knight is an orginal character. The only thing he has in common with Batman is he's vigilante.

If that's so, I think Spectre is a rip-off of the Hood.

People come on, somebody please delete this thread. We've had this thread before and it turned out he's not really a rip-ff

Yes, but did Batman recieve his powers (which he doesn't have) from a god?

And just to be exact, does anybody know when Moon Knight's first appearance was? And Batman'S?
