@dhampyre: @oscuro: @jonny_anonymous: Since everybody and they're mother has adamantium, vibranium, carbondium weapons, armor and whatever, of Blade were to get his own, specialized weapon, I'd like it to be some supernatural forged sword.

Kaluu is a rival of the Ancient One. Why isn't he hooking Blade up?

maybe he will get some eventually

@dhampyre: @phantom1527: @blackwind: @daredevil21134: @oscuro: Al Ewing just said this on twitter

  1. @Al_Ewing Any chance we will get to see some of Blades early years in 1930s Soho London?

@ShaunH22 Signs point to no. But it would be very cool... actually, what would be really cool would be him in 60s Soho. Or 70s Kings Road.

@ShaunH22 I'd really like to integrate Blade more into the British MU, have him as this transatlantic figure.

@ShaunH22 In the States, he's this grimy, gritty vagabond, and then when he goes home he's got this amazing loft and aristocrat girlfriend.

@ShaunH22 Like a monster-hunting John Steed.

so no young Blade....Well maybe down the line they will make one. I'm loving Mighty Avengers in the meantime. I am a very happy camper. Have to get my hands on #10 though

@oscuro: Yeah there shouldn't be a young Blade. He needs to be the "experienced world class monster hunter" Blade or else there isn't anything special about him

I disagree somewhat. I wouldn't mind seeing Blade's experiences over the years. Who knows what he has seen.

I think flashbacks would suffice. It would be nice to see some pivotal moments of Blade's life to better understand why he is who he is today, but for the overall story I want to see Blade as bada** as possible, so it would have to be a Blade with experience, all of his powers and a lot of knowledge about the supernatural

@phantom1527:

I can dig what you're saying and I agree. I just want to see where he picked up some of his skills and what made him into my favorite character. A couple issues wouldn't hurt in my opinion but flashbacks work too. I'm looking forward to him kicking all types of evil a$$. It feels like Ewing has been writing him just for me. I love everything so far.

#168 Posted by phantom1527 (416 posts) - - Show Bio

@oscuro: Definitely. I really hope Blade gets a solo run after Mighty Avengers. Along with Dr. Strange and probably Ghost Rider he's Marvel's most important Supernatural character. It's about time he has a good writer handling him.

Exactly. All of Wolverine's best stories are set in the past when he was a bootlegging gangster, or a samurai in Japan, or a black ops specialist so the same can work for Blade.

What do you mean by unnatural?

@blackwind:

Just to make sure we're on the same page... You're asking if Blade knowing these characters feels natural or does it feel forced? In my opinion it feels pretty natural. Kaluu is an ancient sorcerer so that the fact that he knows of Blade makes sense. He and Blade knowing each other on a first name basis is interesting and I would like to know how this relationship started. Luke Cage's dad was probably in a wrong place wrong time type of scenario, so that's cool too. Hell I think Blue Marvel might be around the same age as Blade so ehhhh maybe they would cross paths. If you want my 2 cents I'd say that most of Blade's acquaintances should be supernatural related characters, anti heroes or martial artists.

Ok if this is what @oscuro is saying then I feel like its natural for Luke Cage. Blade is basically the boogie man of Marvel and he's had enough interactions with major character for there to be some connection. The Blue Marvel part worries me a little bit. I understand both Blade and Blue Marvel are both old, but Blue Marvel has little to no connection with the supernatural world. If next they have Blade reminiscing with Brother Voodoo, I'd be ok with that, but if they have him chatting it up with War Machine or Iron Patriot I would be concerned

@phantom1527:

that's why I said ehhh maybe for the Blue Marvel thing lol. They have a good chance of meeting each other for the simple fact that they have been around for so long. And if they saved the world together in the past that seems like something you wouldn't forget. Not as logical a choice though, and I understand your viewpoint. Brother Voodoo and Blade were cool if im not mistaken but I think he was or is dead (which sucks) Honestly they need to give Blade some damn villains and good ones at that.

Agreed. I actually liked Draconis as a villain, but Blade ripped his head off so I don't think he's coming back lol. I agree though, Blade needs some villains. The Deacon Frost and Dracula angle is a little stale. I'd like to see him fight some of Ghost Rider's villains, but Blade also needs some new villains (non-vampiric would be preferred) that are an actual relevant threat

#177 Posted by Oscuro (1071 posts) - - Show Bio

@phantom1527: completely agree. I think everyone who is a Blade fan agrees the man needs some recurring villains. I like Dracula as his arch nemesis but they have to put him back among the elite villains. He has fallen so far that most people scoff at the idea of anyone facing him. Marvel needs to delve into mythology more. There are so many formidable creatures to draw inspiration from but they need to quit bullsh-ttin' and get on it

I agree with all of this. Dracula went from a guy that defeated nearly the entire X-Men roster to fodder

#179 Edited by BlackWind (6299 posts) - - Show Bio

@oscuro: @phantom1527: I think it feels pretty okay. Which is why I compared it to Wolverine.

And Blade is a sort of character that kind of stuff for some the problem that he doesn't tend to leave most of his villains alive. Dracula is like Darkseid. You can't use him every other story, else it cheapens what he is meant to be. And Deacon Frost has come back plenty of rimes. Problem is he has had no interesting characterization outside the anime or films.

Some non vampire stuff is needed. Otherwise Blade will forever be stuck in the rut he is in.

BTW, anyone ever wonder how Blade feels about street crime? For example if he saw Catwoman jumping out a window with stolen whatever, anyone think he would lift a finger to stop her? Lol.

#180 Posted by Oscuro (1071 posts) - - Show Bio

@blackwind: I agree with you, but what I'm saying as far as Dracula is that he should feel like an elite threat again. He shouldn't pop up that often but when he does it means serious trouble. As far as non vampire threats that's why I said that consulting mythology would be a good idea. There are plenty of crazy creatures out there that would be cool for Blade to deal with and some they could tweak and make into recurring villains. In addition to that vampires could always try to hire an assassin or something to take Blade out or they (or other supernatural villains) could have connections to Hydra or the Maggia or some organization. To answer your question I don't think Blade would give a damn if someone stole anything unless it was his lol. I don't think anybody could pickpocket him or would want to haha

Just a lil FYI for my fellow Blade fans I want to cosplay as Blade at my earliest possible convenience. Unfortunately I wont be able to make Otakon but maybe there will be another convention in the coming months. I definitely have to cosplay as Blade from the Mighty Avengers.

Blade definitely seemed to have a h2h advantage with Kaluu. Meanwhile he is still getting poked and stuff by the Deathwalkers. Can't wait until he gets out and cuts somebody up.

@oscuro: Yewh, it has been one and a half issues or so. Its time for Blade to get back into action.

That said, Blade did quite well against the were roosters. It wasn't the fire that incapacitated him, but the impalement, one of the swords which likely hit a vital organ. But he still healed it, even though he was having his blood drained by leeches. Blade's healing power is definitely on point.
