Blade (character)

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Blade is a Vampire Hunter comic book character from Marvel Comics created by Marv Wolfman and Gene Colan who debuted in The Tomb of Dracula #10 (July, 1973).

Blade was adapted into a trilogy of movies. All three movies star Wesley Snipes as Blade and Kris Kristofferson as Whistler. In addition to the movies there was a spinoff TV show titled, creatively, Blade: The Series. The first film helped usher in the current era of consistently well-done comic book films, coming earlier than X-Men or Spider-Man, and established Blade as a franchise property.

As part of a four-series deal between Marvel and Madhouse (the others being X-Men, Wolverine, and Iron Man), he currently stars in his own anime, which premiered on July 1, 2011.
