Werewolf by Night Respect Thread

#1 Edited by IndieComicsFTW (3253 posts) - - Show Bio

I wanted to quickly make the much asked about Werewolf character from Marvel.

To view scans, right click, and open them in a new tab.

WBN is a character name Jack Russel who was cursed by the Darkhold. The book of all Black Magic made by the Elder God Chthon before fleeing Atum. The curse is that of a Werewolf. He starts out as a nasty savage beast, but toward the end of his solo series, he begins to take control of his Werewolf form, even changing on any night rather than just the Full Moon.


WBN by Bio puts his strength around 2 tons max. He has insane Blunt Force Durability, a Healing Factor, and Peak Human Speed.


WBN is stronger than most peak humans early on, he gains a major strength boost during the full moon however. In his more current versions he had a strength increase.

1) WBN rips a Piranha mans arm off like nothing.

2) Smashes through Concrete and Steel Door.

3) Dents and eventually breaks through Steel Door.


The Durability is WBN is very high to blunt damage. Taking hits from Dracula, Ghost Rider, and Hulk with no effect.

1-2) Tanks over 100 meter fall head first onto rocks. Right back up.

3-4) Tanks Glitternight's blast that shatter multi ton boulders like nothing.

5-6) Endurance to cross the currents and stormy seas to reach a Island a couple miles away with energy to spare.

7) Bounces back from Grey Hulks hits like nothing.


WBN as a werewolf has very excellent super natural healing, Silver Weapons being one of the few things that cancel it.

1) Easy heals and shrugs off The Hoods .45 Caliber Handguns.

2-3) Shrugs off and heals over a Cops .380.

4) Hunting Rifles design to kill Bears and Elk mean nothing to WBN.

5-6) WBN gets a major slice wound, and after a very brief battle of 2 panels (lasting less than 30 seconds probably) he is fully healed.

7) More healing over gunshots.

8-9) WBN is infected by the Marvel Zombie Virus. He remains healed in his WBN form!


As a Werewolf, he has super senses.

1) Tracks Morbius across New York City.

2) Tracks Spider Man across New York City.


It is important to note there is 2 skills sets for WBN. One is the earlier Savage WBN. The other is the Jack Russel in control WBN. Kinda how Hulk has Savage and Grey Hulk mind sets.

Savage WBN vs Frankenstein. Frankenstein is a major power house and one of WBN earliest major battles.

Savage WBN easily takes on a Shark in its own element.

Savage WBN vs a trained Grizzly armed with Silver Claws.

Both Battles with Dracula. In the first fight, Dracula is feeling weak from lack of feeding and WBN is in savage mindset. Dracula ultimately retreats. The second battle was a well fed Dracula fighting a Jack Russel controlled WBN. WBN pushed a fed Dracula to the limits.

Savage WBN has 2 near even matches with Blaze Ghost Rider.

A epic classic Battle up there with Dracula and the first appearance of Moon Knight. Moon Knight armed with a host of Silver Weapons as well his skill and peak human stats barely could bring a savage WBN down.

WBN with Jack in control now fights Iron Man. He did very well.

Jack controlled WBN easily takes out Classic Sabertooth.

Savage WBN vs Savage Hulk. WBN wins by choking Hulk out. This is when Hulk still needed to breath air.

Savage WBN vs Grey Hulk. All Hulk can do is bfr WBN both fights.

A full moon powered and Savage WBN vs Moon Knight. WBN in this gets shot with Silver Bullets and still nearly takes out Moon Knight in this epic battle.

WBN takes on Soul Stealing Sattanish demons, he claims not to have a soul in this as well.

A Savage WBN blitzes and nearly takes out Morbius till Miss Bloodstone interferes. Even then Morbius struggles with him.

Werewolf by Night Max Battles

WBN in the Max Comics is pretty much exactly the same. A added ability of knowledge of the Family Line was inherited in the blood made a neat twist. Because it is a different Universe, I separated these scans.

WBN vs his big sister who is also a Werewolf.

WBN fights off a Vampire and Frankenstein monster.

@indiecomicsftw: Nice thread. Didn't he also have an appearance against West Coast Avengers? I remember him fighting Wonder Man and Stark in the Silver Centurion armor.

It might have something to do with a Darkhold empowered Blade force feeding WBN a few mystical pumpkin bombs back in the Midnight Massacre too. ;)
