Q: Are there any superheroes who can't be improved by making them also a werewolf? -- @daveexmachina
A: My friends, I am being 100% real with you when I say that questions like this are exactly why I started writing this column in the first place.
So let's see here. If you go back and look at my work over the past ten years, it's probably going to be pretty clear that when it comes to your classic Halloween monsters, werewolves don't really do much for me. I am and will always be a Dracula man, but I can't deny that throwing in some extra hair, a couple of claws, and an uncontrollable monthly blood lust is something that could make pretty much any character in comics a whole lot more interesting. Which, now that I think of it, is probably why it's actually happened way more than you might remember.
If I'm being honest, I think all I've ever wanted out of any Marvel cartoon is for Swamp Thing and Howard The Duck to team up and hang out. And while we are still a long, long way from that ever happening (because that's never happening), we're closer than we've ever been. A few weeks ago, Howard made a brief cameo appearance in an episode of Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and now Marvel has announced a special one-hour Halloween episode of Ultimate Spider-Man for October, featuring Spidey teaming up with Blade, Werewolf by Night, The Living Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster and Man-Thing.
Dr. Strange, First Appearance Blade, Werewolf by Night and Morbius the Living Vampire will unite in Diamond Select Toys and Art Asylum's Strange Tales Marvel Minimates box set in March. Though the figures won't arrive in stores until well after Halloween, toy sites are currently offering preorder prices of about $17-20 if the spooky side of the fall season strikes fans...
