Marvel Studios has recently released another miniseries on Disney+ by the name of Moon Knight. Created by Jeremy Slater, the series has a lot of elements that intrigue the viewers, like Dissociative Identity Disorder. DID is a psychological condition where two or more distinct identities are present in the patient’s mind. The identities have their own personality traits and sometimes different age, gender, race, etc., from the host personality. Isn’t that mind-blowing?
That’s the main setting in the plot of the Moon Knight. It follows Marc Spector, a mercenary who has Dissociative Identity Disorder. Thons become more intense when his other personality, Steven Grant, becomes the conduit of the Egyptian Moon God, Khonshu. Not giving any more spoilers in case you haven’t watched it yet.
But if you have, and you found it to be as per your liking, here’s a list of several other TV series that one can binge anytime.

Daredevil is another Marvel television series that has a pretty impressive storyline and is sometimes hard to believe as well. Imagine a superhero that was blinded at a young age and now relies purely on his other senses like hearing, smell, touch, etc. Sounds too cool to be true, right? That is Daredevil, a lawyer by day and a hero vigilante by night.
In the streets of New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, he fights off crime and those who are responsible for it under cover of the night. The series follows his adventures and misadventures with villainous entities like Wilson Fisk, Frank Castle or generally known as the Punisher, etc. It has a pretty dark theme and backstory to it just like in the Moon Knight.
Directed by: Stephen Fung, Roel Reine, Toa Fraser,
Cast: Iko Uwais, Byron Mann, Lewis Tan, Lawrence Kao, Celia Au, Li Jun Li, Tommy Flanagan, and Katheryn Winnick

Who doesn’t like an occasional dose of physics-defying Kung-Fu and such martial arts? That occasional doze can be John Wirth and Tony Krantz’s Wu Assasins. The story follows a modern-day Chinatown chef in San Francisco, Kai Jin. A regular guy who is good at his job and tries to keep his life balanced was what Kai Jin was all about. However, his ‘almost-balanced’ life became pretty much imbalanced when he encountered a mystical spirit who gave him the powers of a thousand monks, making him the Wu Assassin.
He is given the responsibility to recover the supernatural powers from the present-day Wu-warlords who are planning to use those powers to destroy the world.
Directed by: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Michael Slovis, John Grillo, and more
Cast: Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown

After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Hawkeye or Clint Barton retired and tried becoming a family man as he always wanted. But is it that easy for our superheroes?

Loki is one of the anti-heroes that Marvel fans love and hate at the same time. Initially introduced as the God of Mischief and the brother of the Norse God, Thor, Loki has been able to make himself quite a following for a character that can be downright villainous at times.
At the end of the Avengers: Endgame, Loki uses the Tesseract to escape the timeline so that he doesn’t get caught and questioned for his crimes. But his one action broke the straight flow of reality into several branches. Now Time Variance Authority summoned him to fix the mess he had made. TVA proposed two choices in front of him; either he’ll be erased from the face of the universe, or he’ll help fix the timeline; what’s there to see is his choice and the repercussions it will lead to.
