When Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life, he discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
Far surpassed my admittedly low expectations. Like the Mandalorian, “new” characters seem the way to go.
What I liked most about this was the chunk in the middle, where you could almost forget it was the MCU. But the VERY MCU conclusion wasn’t unwelcome, either.
