Origin

Chons, better known as Khonshu, was the son of Atum (known to the Egyptian gods as Ammon Ra) and of Amaunet, air goddess of the Ogdoad pantheon. He was the brother of Montu,[1] and possibly of Bes and Ptah.[1]

Early years

For some reasons, perhaps the Ogdoad's aging and dying under unrevealed circumstances,[4] Amaunet was replaced by Mut who became Khonshu's stepmother.[5]

The worship of the Helipolitans by the inhabitants of the Nile River Valley began around 10,000 BC.[6]

Modern days

Khonshu resurrected Marc Spector and blessed him with superhuman powers and abilities under the Moon.[7]

Powers

Khonshu has the conventional powers of the Ennead (the Heliopolitan gods), such as:

  • Superhuman Strength: Khonshu can lift (press) 60 tons.[1]
  • Superhuman Durability: Khonshu possesses superhuman durability that allows him to withstand unspecified levels of injury. Despite his god-like durability, it is possible to injure Khonshu, but any damaged tissue heals much faster and better than even the healthiest human. He is extremely long-lived and is immune to disease and aging.
  • Magic Manipulation: Khonshu can manipulate mystic energies for supernatural effects such as interdimensional teleportation, telepathy, healing the injured, resurrection, earthquakes and to grant superhuman powers to mortal beings such as the Moon Knight.[8][9]

Weapons

Khonshu does not wield any weapons of his own, but he has bestowed power upon several artifacts which have become part of Moon Knight's arsenal for some time.
