I don't know if it's the worst Halloween costume I've ever seen.....

.......but this has got to be in the running. That and the time Deadpool dressed up in an old-school Marvel Girl outfit to help rid Wolverine of his obsession with Jean....which he said actually worked.

Happy Halloween folks........

So, Who Would Win?: Lord Vampire Wolverine VS. Blade the vampire hunter


Continuing the horror theme for these fantasy fights, I'm pitting the Lord of vampires, Wolverine who comes straight from two What If? issues, against one of Marvel Comics' leading vampire hunters Blade.

Lord Vampire Wolverine comes to us from his initial appearance in What If?#24 (Vol. 2)

In that issue, Wolverine becomes a vampire when Dracula defeats the X-MEN and bites them. But being the alpha dog he is, Logan quickly confronts and kills Dracula to become the new Lord and Master over all vampires. From there he goes on a biting tour of his MU, converting hero and villain alike into vampires.

So basically you have Wolverine with all his normal powers, but now with all powers and abilities of a vampire.

In opposition, you have the vampire hunter, Blade. 

Blade's a half-vampire after his mother was savagely attacked by a vampire while still very much pregnant with Blade.

He seems to have most of a vampire's abilities with little to none of their weaknesses, with the lone exception of an unyielding thirst for blood.

In my scenario, Lord Wolverine has somehow found himself in the main MU, and plans on turning everyone into a vampire, much like how he did on his world. But he knows he's going to have lots of opposition to those plans. He makes a list of all the possible heroes and villains who could stop him, and plans to hunt each and every one of them down first. 
At first he considers going after Dr. Strange, but then after a chance viewing of an article about Blade in the Daily Bugle, changes his mind. The opportunity to take out a vampire hunter like Blade is too much to resist. So that's exactly what Lord Wolverine does. He tracks Blade down and decides to pounce when he thinks has an opportune moment. 
But Blade senses him approaching, and quickly realizes this is going to be a long night.


Lord Wolverine


Who wins and why?
Let me know what you think.......

Had to include this image I found, teasing a not-so subtle fate for Blade if he ever crossed paths with Wolverine:
Cute. Real cute;)

Have a good weekend people......

Dream Waves: The Serpent Society

Happy Hump Day people....

Getting right into it, today, I'm laying out my ideal wave of Serpent Society member figures.
That's right, the Serpent Society.

First appearing in Captain America#310 (October 1985) and created by writer Mark Gruenwald and artist Paul Neary, the Serpent Society started out as a group founded by Sidewinder as a way of gathering all the snake-themed villains together.

They're basically blue-collar/unionized super-villains with a snake theme.
But they're all a very colorful cast of personalities and powers, so there's so much potential that can be done with them both in the comics and in  other mediums.

Now since it would take a shitload of Cap waves to finally feature most or all of them, I just figured I'd make it easy, and just devote an entire two waves to those members most deserving of being included.

Those who haven't been included on this list are those that have already been made, like Cottonmouth and the Constrictor. But there's plenty more popular members that haven't been made yet, like Cap's old squeeze, Diamondback for one.

Well I'm about to attempt to fix all that by giving Hasbro some free advice.

Serpent Society Wave 1:

1). Sidewinder

2). Diamondback

She's had some variations from her first look over the years, and I'd honestly be fine with either one just as long as we finally get an official Marvel Legends figure of her.

3). Black Mamba

4). Asp

5). Princess Python

6). Rock Python

7). King Cobra

We almost got him in that last Cap wave, but for some reason they pulled the plug at the last minute, and we got the Eel instead.
Let's remedy that Hasbro!

BAF: Bushmaster

I like his design, and the character himself. And as you can see for yourself, he really would have to be a build-a-figure in order to make sure he's realized fully.

Here's an example by way of a custom for a idea of how to execute his look.

Ideally you'd want that tail portion to be more flexible though.

Serpent Society Wave 2:

1). The Viper (Short-haired)

This figure really does need a redo after the horrible, fugly figure we got instead back in the late 00's.

It's time she had a figure made to do her justice.

2). Anaconda

3). Black Racer

4). Rattler

5). Coachwhip

6). Cooperhead

7). Death Adder

BAF: Puff Adder

Here's what we could be seeing....

So that's list. See any that didn't make the cut?

"Closing time. You don't have to go home but you can't stay here."

Well..... I kinda always knew this day would come, and it sure has. It's been a hell of a ride, but it's time to for it end. Ti...
