HALLOWEEN SPOOKLIGHT: MORBIUS


From Marvel Comics

Though super heroes take center stage in the Marvel Universe, the darker corners house some of the creepiest monsters around. Morbius the Living Vampire remains one of the more complicated ghouls of the bunch.

A scientist-turned-blood sucker, the character made his first appearance with AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #101 in October of 1971 thanks to writer Roy Thompson and artist Gil Kane. Appropriately, the issue included a variety of classic horror references including a general mad scientist vibe and specific mentions of Frankenstein, Dracula and Alfred Hitchcock.

Morbius first popped up as a scared, strange looking man traveling on a ship suspected of killing the captain halfway through the issue. He avoided the angry mob until night set in along with his vampiric powers and then spent the entire eve quenching his thirst on every last one of them.

Feeling guilty, Morbius dove into the ocean and wound up sleeping through the day in Dr. Curt Connors’ house in the Hamptons. It just so happened that Spider-Man—sporting six arms thanks to a potion he took in issue #100 intended to cure him of his powers—had holed up in the same spot in an effort to cure himself.

As night fell, Morbius stumbled down the stairs, set eyes on the Wall Crawler and attacked, looking to satiate his monstrous hunger. Luckily for Spidey, Dr. Connors appeared just in time to save him from becoming a snack—but the stress of the situation turned him into The Lizard!
