Who Is Marvel’s Morbius?
File Under: I did not know that.
So, coming soon to a theater near you is Morbius.
In the name of Korath the Pursuer, “Who?!”
Well, it’s Morbius. And, today AMC Scene typed up “What You Need To Know About the Marvel Villain.”
And here are several things you kneed to know from AMC:
- Morbius as a character was first created for Marvel Comics in 1971, gracing the pages of “Spider-Man #101,” written and illustrated, respectively, by the team of Roy Thomas and Gil Kane.
- Dr. Michael Morbius was originally a Nobel Prize-winning biologist who had been motivated in his work by a lifetime of suffering from a rare blood disease… His desire to cure himself, unfortunately, led him to perform experiments on himself and doing so transformed him into a Living Vampire
- [H]e does have supernatural strength, echolocation, enhanced night vision, a powerful healing factor, and he can draw extra power when he feeds. Unlike normal vampires, he’s not affected by garlic, crosses or holy water, and he can enter places uninvited.
The film, starring Jared Leto, will hit screens in July. But we already have a trailer:
