Moon Knight’s first episode just dropped on Disney Plus today, so it’s time to get to know Steven that bit better!
Name: Steven Grant
Superhero Name: N/A
Created By: Doug Moench and Don Perlin

Mini Bio: Steven Grant is an alter for the character/hero Marc Spector/Moon Knight. Marc has a condition known as Dissociative Identity Disorder, meaning he has several personalities, one of whom is Steven.
He first came into being when Marc was a child and has been with him ever since. Steven has amassed a fortune over the years through certain investments and business ventures, making him a millionaire. He owns a mansion and has used his fortune to help Marc create weaponry to help fight crime. Generally, he leaves the crime-fighting to Marc and instead focuses on the business side of their life.
