Does Blade need better writers and show more of his powers?

#1 Edited by TheAvenger802 (272 posts) - - Show Bio

I have seen blade from good comics and there are more worse ones than good. Even though i have seen amazing ones. The movies are older but there okay. He does show his powers more in the movies then the series "blade" from the year 2006.  In issue 5, where he confronts Wolverine, blade and him have a small fight and blade says the fight is pointless because they both have to good of healing factors and blade owed wolverine a favor....however in that comic it didn't seem like a fight it seemed like blade got his ass handed to him despite the fact that he has many years of martial art and weapon skills so he should have been able to defend himself although Wolverine is a amazing fighter. In the new Blade anime cartoon, blade is much much much better. He blocks a bullet coming straight at him he gets punched in the hand with spikey brass knuckles without even making him look at it and then he heals fast. He can also run really fast and jump really far and high. From Blades page and from comics it says his healing factor in on par with wolverines.... despite the crappy blade films..he shows much potential for a thing like this to happen.i dont know i just wish that blade had better writers and showed more of his power.

i would like to see someone like ed brubaker write blade. a noirish story kind of outside the regular continuity. a real gritty type of street level story.. kind of like the punisher but with vampires. however, in regard to his powers... there really isn't much to showcase.

@MastaKilla: What do you mean. his jumping, fighting, and healing factor powers need to be showed much more

well, in my opinion, i think it would be cool to see a writer, at least in the short term, focus on blade strugglin' with his identity while doing what he deems necessary. of course there would be lots of action but i would like to see blade put into a situation where his loyalties in regard to humanity versus vampire were tested. kind of like the way undercover cops come to question their loyalties because they have maintained deep cover for long periods of time.

BLADE IS AWESOME!!! They should really get a better person to write for him...that would be so cool if that one guy who writes for deadpool wrote for blade. Then that would show more of his power

yeah the blade anime is awesome he does needs a better writers and his ongoing series  more so than war machine who's a lame iron man knockoff. i hope he show up in the ultimate spider-man cartoon next year. he needs to do a team-up book with dr. strange that would be interesting !

To be honest I found the movies to be a lot better than the comics (i found them to be quite bad) which is a shame. I really don't get Marvel since they don't do hardly anything with him and blade has name recognition yet a character like Vampirella has almost no name recognition and has her own series and has been in a lot more comics than blade has according to the vine.

yeah that's strange vs. vampirella.  but the blade anime rocks !

No not really. At least the current series which I've been reading. It's just showing some T&A with her and other women in skimpy outfits is all. When it comes to Vampirella and clothing Dynamite apparently thinks less is better.

@cody1984: The reason I ask is because if you go to her Recent issues theres a bunch of naked chics thats wjy I thought so.

That's not her comic that's some kind of...porno parody I guess? Anyway I read up to issue 5 of her current series (haven't read any of her older stuff) This is what she looks like in the comics.

Vamp #3 - Ivan Nunes
Vampirella #8
Vampirella Masters # 1
Vampirella #3
Vampirella #2
Vampirella #1

Like I said they show T&A by having her in skimpy outfit (although she has been dressing in street clothing through most of the series) but it really isn't much worse then Ms Marvel's custom..

Mark Millar Paul Cornell Garth Ennis or Ed Brubaker would be my picks to write him

Idk but blade's new stuff looks cool. He gets shot in the brain and heals fast, he scares the crap out of spiderman. i just dont like the comics with him getting stabbed in the head by wolverine, the covers all look cool but the actual comic sucks.

Yea, the writer stated he didn't want to write Blade at first and did all of his research on wikipedia...Blade's power levels were all over the place...and the overall story wasn't very good. 
 
Ultimate/Anime Blade have both been great takes on the character...616 Blade has way too many problems and left over plot points to deal with

They really should just reboot the entire character in 616 starting from scratch at this point making him more like the movie version like Ultimate does. Since hardly anyone cares about his comics in 616.

It's hard to justify that though...maybe through one of those Season 1 comics

The bald look actually hides age usually since it hides either the receding headline or gray hair. Guggenheim has stated this a couple of times (in one of the comics mail section a reader writes in to thank Guggenheim for using the wikipedia article he wrote)

@trackz: I completely agree. Why does it seem Blade is only a mess in 616? The anime version had it right. As well as the Ultimate version.

Blade also should be shown tohave an arsenal of different weapons, tailored to every sort of supernatural scum he fights.
