Khonshu is one of the main antagonists of the Moon Knight series in the Marvel comics. He is known as the Egyptian God of Moon and he is the one who instilled supernatural abilities in Marc Spector. 

Khonshu is a major foe for the Avengers and he also served as the main antagonist in the Avengers chapter – Age of Khonshu and the Moon Knight series 2016. 

Khonshu found Marc Spector almost dead, and he instilled life and new powers in him, in exchange for being his avatar. Though Khonshu most of the time appeared to be a helping hand for Marc, in several cases, he turned into a villain when he tries to become more controlling over Marc.
