Arthur Harrow in Moon Knight Explained

In Moon Knight comics, Arthur Harrow is a mad scientist who was about to win Nobel Prize in medicine. However, it was later revealed that Arthur’s research was connected to Nazi experiments in Auschwitz during World War II.

Arthur Harrow is obsessed with “pain,” and that’s why he was working on something called “Pain theory.” According to Arthur, his research was limited to some experiments on animals; however, he had been performing illegal tests on several human subjects. In the comics, Moon Knight learns about Arthur Harrow’s inhumane activities through a vision. So, he does everything in his power to stop the mad scientist.

It’s hard to say how Moon Knight tv show will connect Marc Spector with Arthur Harrow. However, judging from the first trailer, it’s safe to presume that Arthur will start taking an interest in Marc because of his deep connection to pain. Also, there’s a chance that Arthur will ask Marc to study what’s inside his head, which might ultimately force Marc’s transformation to Moon Knight.

Anyway, we’ll get all our answers when Moon Knight releases on Disney Plus this year. The new trailer confirmed that the show would premiere on March 30th, 2022.
