Morbius

Morbius, the Living Vampire, a.k.a. award-winning biochemist Dr. Michael Morbius, Ph.D., M.D., is a fictional character appearing in Marvel Comics. He was created by writer Roy Thomas and originally designed by penciler Gil Kane. 

While Morbius debuted in October 1971 in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 as villain, he has since become a brooding, gritty, and tragically falwed antihero in his own series and other titles in the 1990s.

Michael Morbius was imbued with pseudo-vampiric superhuman abilities and physical traits after a failed experiment in which he intended to cure the rare blood disease that he suffered from.

Morbius has appeared in various media forms outside of comics including animated television shows and video games. April 1st, 2022 saw his live-action debut in Morbius from Sony Picutres with Jared Leto portraying the Living Vampire on the big screen for the first time.
