Let's see: Paladin was largely purchased for a Sasquatch part, since I think I like the idea of the character more than any comics he's actually appeared in. I think Hasbro's gotten a lot of reuse out of that mold, in colors other than purple. Per OAFE's review, it's a reuse of Blade! I didn't plan using them both in the same strip for that reason, just a happy accident. But that mold has been used since in the A.I.M. two-pack.

The Thing, of course, is a unique sculpt, and so great. (EDIT: And Mark Waid and Dan Slott both established the Thing really shouldn't be tooling about in Dr. Doom's time machine. Reed had left signs all over it like "NO!" and "Remember the Alamo!" and implored him and Johnny to leave poor Davy Crockett alone. Or was it Daniel Boone? Well, either way.)

I don't know, I think Morbius might be more creepy than other vampires.

@CalvinPitt: I'm surprised the other vampires don't make fun of him and give him shit for calling himself a vampire despite not being anywhere close to a traditional vampire. He'd be like the Rudolph the reindeer of Vampires.

Another funny edition of this Networking storyline. I love it! Cute business by 'Tiger for sneaking a selfie w/Ben. Funny.
As for Blade, I think a case can be made that most, if not all, of the vampires that show up in the Blade movies (and tv series I guess) look like pure Eurotrash. Not so much in the comics.

I'm pretty sure the other vampires DO mock Morbius. And for good reason.
