The Mind-Bending Marvel Show Fans Of Moon Knight Episode 4 Need To Watch Next

This article contains spoilers for "Moon Knight" Episode 4. Reader beware!

Over the years, Marvel Studios has developed a simple yet entertaining in-house style for its Marvel Cinematic Universe productions. Dazzling action, straightforward drama, and a hint of comedy have become the franchise's hallmarks, but some recent projects have made attempts to change up the formula. This is especially true in the Disney+ realm, where the creators behind the likes of "WandaVision" and "Loki" have had the chance to try out some different things in terms of visuals and narrative structure. Thus far, "Moon Knight" has wholeheartedly joined this group by taking more than a few steps outside the norm.

Centered on Marc Spector or Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac), depending on the moment, the series spotlights a man who has lost control of his own mind. Thanks at least in part to the influence of the Egyptian god Khonshu (F. Murray Abraham), Spector's psyche has fractured and developed more than one distinct personality trapped within one body. Nevertheless, they're committed to stopping the villainous Dr. Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke), who plans to release the goddess Ammit so she can unleash havoc and destruction upon the world. Most would agree that these elements combined have made for one of the most unique shows to come out of the MCU.

For those who've loved the disjointed, perspective-warping nature of "Moon Knight" thus far, especially in Episode 4, here's a similarly styled Marvel Comics-based TV show that you'll want to check out.

Legion is all kinds of trippy, comic-booky fun

To close out "Moon Knight" Episode 4, titled "The Tomb," Marc Spector and Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy) manage to find Ammit's ushabti before Arthur Harrow and his followers. However, Khonshu's former avatar has no qualms about shooting Marc to get the ushabti for himself. Thought to be dead, Marc wakes up in a psychiatric hospital that's riddled with hints of his life, from people to artifacts. Understandably sent into a frenzy, he makes a mad dash to escape and discovers Steven Grant in a body of his own encased in a sarcophagus. Reunited, they then run into the Egyptian goddess Taweret (Antonia Salib) and freak out as the credits roll.

To put it mildly, the conclusion of "The Tomb" left many "Moon Knight" fans with more questions than answers. At the same time, it reminded others, such as Reddit users Locke108 and gregusmeus, of "Legion": a series that ran on FX for three seasons from 2017 to 2019 and never shied away from sending audiences on bonkers visual and narrative trips. The show focused on the mutant son of X-Men leader Charles Xavier, David "Legion" Haller (Dan Stevens), as he not only learned to control his extensive psychic abilities while avoiding government containment, but prevent dark, nefarious forces from harnessing them for their own gain. 

"Legion" may be brief, but it's one of the most unique and captivating pieces of superhero media out there, nonetheless. It pushed genre boundaries, hosted some stellar performances, and delivered to fans some deep-cut characters from the Marvel Comics catalog. If you're looking for more to watch that's similar to "Moon Knight" Episode 4, then "Legion" should be at the top of the list.
