Marvel's dark universe, what happened to it?

Posted by megamoses10 (81 posts) - - Show Bio

When i was a kid, i used to enjoy reading the stories of marvel's dark characters such as ghost rider, blade, midnight sons, night stalkers, morbius and doctor strange. these characters used to be awesome but for some reason, marvel doesn't seem to show that much interest in them anymore. i mean, when was the last time marvel did a crossover or saga just for the dark characters. Hannibal king, frank drake, werewolf by night and blade rarely show up anymore and even doctor strange has now become somewhat useless and boring. the only dark character that is somewhat important now is ghost rider and even he doesn't have his own ongoing series (screw the female ghost rider, she sucks). i wish marvel would bring back their dark heroes and reintroduce them in a modern way. so what about you guys, do you think that marvel should start focusing more on their dark characters or have these heroes become a thing of the past?

Looks like Shadowland is the closest we will get for a while. Lol

@JediXMan: My comment was with tongue firmly in cheek.

i most definitely agree - Marvel should give marvel darker and urban heroes some more shine

I have no idea what happened to it but it dosen't look promising when you got guys like Daredevil acting like Spider-man, and Moon Knight playing Avenger man

blade should get an ongoing series instead of all those crappy x-men series, theres like 20 of them or even more.
