First.. and he actually looks like his movie counterpart. Blade friggin rules!

I thought he was in prison still.

Blade 1 and 2 were good movies, Blade 3 was a bastard of a movie just like Spiderman 3. And some CB 'fans' dare complain about TDKR after those two.

As long as he aint teaching accounting, they would be fools to not give him a job. Also he's black.

Could never get into Wolverine and the X-men. Just seemed too kiddish and boring. Not sure why, might have been the horrible art that it usually has. Still I may read it later... not sure...

Umm, why is Slimer in the X-men and when did Nightcrawler have kids? Oh and why is Swarm attacking the school isn't he a Spider-man villain?
WesleyGibson - 10/27/2012, 6:20 PM
Does he have his actual hand back? I hated that 'gunhand' bullshit.

I FINALLY DID IT!!!! I FINALLY HIT THE JUMP!!!!

oh and Blade is cool too.
LaputaHeir - 10/27/2012, 7:11 PM
Don't care what anyone else says, Welsey Snipes WAS Blade.
LaputaHeir - 10/27/2012, 7:13 PM
If Del Toro was able to direct that 3rd film, the cluster-[frick] that WAS/IS Blade 3 could have been adverted.

As much as I want to buy this comic for this brief appearance, this brief appearance's dialogue is incredibly bad.
IDKwhatToChoose - 10/27/2012, 7:23 PM
Need to put him back in a movie... who has the rights?
Robert - 10/27/2012, 8:02 PM
I miss those dark bad ass Blade movies. Blade 1 and Blade 2 were great. Blade 3 was garbage, b/c the studio thought that showcasing other vampire hunters would be a great idea. Blade is the one and only vampire hunter. No more silly and childish "Twilight"-like movies. Bring back Snipes for some back-to-basics bad ass vampire movies.
ChanceX74 - 10/27/2012, 10:23 PM
@IDKwhatToChoose: The rights to Blade went back to Marvel not all that long ago. Ghost Rider was also about to revert back which is why Sony crapped out Spirit of Vengeance, though why you would release a crap movie just to retain film rights to a property that you just devalued or destroyed the profitability of by putting out the crap movie is beyond me. Maybe there's some secret bean-counter line of thinking behind it all that makes sense because I sure can't see any.

Anyone remember when Steve Skroce drew Blade in the Gambit series? He looked like the movie version.
SageMode - 10/27/2012, 10:35 PM
Now bring back the MIDNIGHT SONS.

I love that Deathlok basically acknowledges every complaint about the Marvel universe. "Stastically higher accounts of vampires, Resurrection, heroes fighting heroes..."
DarthTesla - 10/28/2012, 12:06 AM
Ahahaha that is [frick]in' hilarious. Awesome.

Welcome back, Daywalker.

This books level of piss-takery is brilliant. Love the writing on this thing.
GLprime2814 - 10/28/2012, 12:26 AM
Is this a sitcom, I can hear the live audience in the background.
dracula - 10/28/2012, 12:42 AM
let blade teach
Rowsdower - 10/28/2012, 12:48 AM
Blade didn't even start carrying a sword until 1993. lol
mgeoff88 - 10/28/2012, 1:02 AM
I miss bad ass vampires like Blade! The world needs him now more than ever...

Damn Twilight movies! Vampires don't sparkle in the light of day!

I really hope a new Blade movie is being planned.
WesleyGibson - 10/28/2012, 1:50 AM
Bram Stoker's Dracula. I'd say that's what the world needs as far as badass vamps go. That or that creepy shit from Nosferatu. But Blade is great as well so I do agree.
sameoldthing - 10/28/2012, 6:35 AM
Blade is a great character & needs to be in more comics.
He needs his own title.

As for the movies,they were awesome..yea the third was weakest but it had its moments & isn't nearly bad enough to be called a crappy film.

It just fell flat..like Dark Knight Rises,like Spider-Man 3 & Indy 4,etc.
Happens to the best properties,just move on & make more please.

GLprime2814 - 10/28/2012, 10:47 AM
Twilight ruined the vampire genra.
icebergslick - 10/28/2012, 5:35 PM
I swear...it's like Marvel doesn't know what to do with Blade after they made Blade 3. The anime was a decent, but other than that they keep dropping the ball. He seem like he will be used as comic relief guest appearance in this book. Give Eric Brooks his respect and write him something decent to star in.
DioFoRio - 10/28/2012, 6:59 PM
@Nomis!!! DUDE!!! i was just gonna bring up that mini!!Bought it when it came out!! Great art nd story..he's a cool character!
miggyman24 - 10/28/2012, 10:23 PM
everybody wants to see vampires getting f**ked up, not breeding up high school girl, bring snipes back. in the xmen teach bad language and cut off heads and beating up familiers
Hitboyj - 10/29/2012, 6:43 AM
