    Speaking of the supernatural actual ghosts, etc in Marvel

    I loved Nightstalkers, Morbius and Ghost Rider. Nightstalkers I've been buying old back issues to catch up on. I only had a few issues back then in the mid 1990s and was surprised the series was able to get away with the gore and violence. Even the 1990s Morbius got a bit sexual and gorey

    Hopefully with the original Elsa Bloodstone mini available again we can see more of her original origins and characterization, and not keep getting stories treating the Nextwave implanted memories, especially of Ulysses being abusive dirt bag, as reality. Ulysses' memory deserves better and her original mini states explicitly she didn't know the man and certainly didn't grow up around him. The Nextwave false memories being treated as canon is something that drives me nuts, and shows the writer needs to do a little more research before writing Elsa

    Marvel tried something different in 1976 by having four of its supernatural characters team up, or rather, meet. Unable to control their nature, save for Ghost Rider, they fight each other and wind up killing a being who could have released them from their curses.
