Those speculations are basically what occured in Amazing Spider-Man 220. Moon Knight takes over just to take baddies down. :-/
Bendis' run is at least, an extentsion of that.

long time moon knight fan and usually a bendis & maleeve fan & all i can really say is "meh".
its like we finally get a relaunch with a creative team that people will buy no matter what and theyve turned moon knight into just another bendis avengers book. i dont get it.
I think it could be done in a way that introduces readers to the characters rather than have the reader feel as if they are missing something. It's possible to do it in a way that doesn't distract from the story. Marlene in particular could've been introduced no problem.
if moon knight is the kingpin of LA is steve going to be forced to kick him off the avengers and throw him in a hospital? this seems like a disturbing mental illness that needs to be contained.
I thought it was a pretty good comic overall. It hung up as a single issue and made me wonder what comes next, which is what it is all about. You got the characters background handled pretty succinctly and then it is on to what is going down now. I am sure that Frenchy and Marlene will be incorporated at some point and the expanded cast of the new Moon Knight comic laid out.
Now this is on one issue, but this issue is way more on target than the totally psychotic loony that was Moon Knight in the Huston re-start. That thing was totally over the top by comparison.
Up until now the formula of Bendis + Maleev + the solo adventures of a street-level hero haven't disappointed me, so I'm going to ignore my strong urge to kind of shrug at this issue. It may be that the concept was so unabashedly plastered all over everything that the issue's ending really had absolutely no kick to it, or that I read the thing in a kind of over-tired state at 1:00 in the morning, but it hasn't really grabbed me yet. That said, I've never passed judgement on a series based solely on a first issue, and this one wasn't even a bad first issue - just not great. If the rest of the first story arc pans out, I'll be sold. If not... while, another $3.99 in my pocket.

Fist of Khonshu and the Marc Spector: Moon Knight stuff was some of my least favourite stuff as well. Fist of Khonshu felt a bit off base and the Marc Spector book a little too 90's Marvel generic.
