blade has gone to battle with Dracula’s Vampire Nation in the aftermath of Doctor Strange’s death. Death of Doctor Strange: Blade #1 will be released in December by Marvel, a one-shot that explores the consequences of Doctor Strange’s impending death, notably among Earth’s vampires, whom Strange once wiped out with a spell!
Blade’s special abilities give him all the advantages of a vampire without the risk of succumbing to sunlight. On his quest to hunt down and destroy all vampires, he has met paths with a number of Marvel heroes, most recently joining the Avengers. Dracula, Blade’s arch-nemesis, has recently made aggressive movements throughout the Marvel Universe, joining forces with Russia’s Winter Guard and forming the Vampire Nation. Dracula has also been secretly gathering blood from mutants and other superhumans in order to use it as a weapon. In an attempt to defend his activities to the outside world, Dracula said that all he wants is a haven where vampires may coexist happily, similar to Krakoa, the mutant homeland. Blade saw right through the pretense and was named Sheriff of the Vampire Nation, tasked with keeping Dracula in line. Meanwhile, Doctor Strange’s demise draws nearer.
Blade fans will have to wait until December 1st to find out if he will battle alongside or against Dracula. Blade’s predicament here is a continuation of his Avengers storyline. Blade has found it difficult to reconcile his history as a vicious vampire assassin with his current duty as one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Blade has pledged himself to a greater purpose while taking the UN-backed position as the Vampire Nation’s sheriff to stop Dracula’s ambitions. Blade’s hatred of vampires is still palpable, and in Death of Doctor Strange: Blade #1, he must choose between his heroism and his desire to rid the world of the undead once and for all.
One of the most intriguing aspects of Marvel’s Death of Doctor Strange is how it would alter the Marvel Universe’s mystic status quo, resulting in new dangers and tense alliances, and Blade appears to be one of those who will be most affected. Blade’s new role will be hunting vampires.
