A British police officer and follower of Harrow’s cult in the person of Moon Knight, Bobbi Kennedy was created by Doug Moench and Bill Sienkiewicz as one of many aliases/alter egos used by the hero when he needed to impersonate someone else (although she was rarely used compared to Marlene Alraune or Steven Grant). In fact, the identity of Bobbi Kennedy has rarely been used since its debut in the late ’70s. The character has been played by Ann Akinjirin in Moon Knight (2016).

What We See
Police officer Bobbi Kennedy tries to protect Harrow’s followers from Jack Daniels who sees them as criminals. This is a very brutal fight in which Moon Knight and Nikki Finch (in her costumed identity of Fist Fight) are present. The brawl moves through one floor of an apartment building then out onto a balcony where both police officers tumble over into some flower boxes on a fire escape landing.
What It Means
Moon Knight is a Marvel superhero whose real name is Marc Spector. Marc is a highly trained athlete and has undergone multiple personality disorder after getting himself involved in an explosion while on duty. To save his life, he receives a bone marrow transplant from Steven Grant, aka The Fist of Khonshu (God of War). However, even after his rebirth, Marc still struggles with his mental stability. It’s been said that not all Moon Knights are Marc Spector due to different personalities and interpretations by multiple artists; some may focus more on insanity and mental instability while others can focus more on athleticism and agility.
Let’s Review The Facts
So far, we know that Moon Knight has been accused of multiple murders and is suspected to be a psychotic mass murderer. However, police can’t seem to pin anything on him due to lack of evidence. That doesn’t mean he’s in the clear—they just need something more substantial in order to convict him. When they realize he isn’t even human (to put it lightly), they come up with an outlandish plan…
How Did This Happen?
A lot of you may have been expecting a Bobbi but we have a surprise for you… Moon Knight has decided to take up arms and fight against all crime in his own way. And he needs some backup!

We are proud to present you with our brand new character: Bobbi Kennedy! Enjoy, Agents!
Why Did This Happen?
First appearing in Werewolf by Night #32 (April 1974), Bobbi has worked for several years as a police officer. She first appeared in Marvel Comics in Werewolf by Night #32 (April 1974) before making her first appearance under her given name in Marvel Two-in-One #41 (March 1977). As Bobbi Savage, she has long been associated with lycanthropy and its treatment, having lost family members to it; she therefore strives to cure or aid werewolves and others with similar afflictions. She also worked with Tigra on some cases while they were both employed at Brand Corporation.
Who is Ann Akinjirin?
Currently, there are several characters within Marvel Comics who share similar attributes and appearances to that of Akinjirin. She is an example of a villain who has been written out of continuity. Though many fans hope she will one day reappear in mainstream comics, it is not known if or when that may happen. Her first appearance was in Avengers #278 (February 1986) and was created by writer Roger Stern and artist John Buscema. Since then, Akinjirin has never made another appearance within Marvel Comics despite being mentioned occasionally by other characters and having several storylines set up for her.
Bobbi Kennedy was born in Northampton England and was raised by her mother. Her father died when she was only 5 years old. She grew up without any brothers or sisters, but had a loving and supportive mother. However, at age 17 her mother died of breast cancer, leaving her alone with no family to support her. This left an emotional scar on young Kennedy that made it very difficult for her to trust others even close friends after losing both parents in such short succession.
