The best parts of Marvel Comics’ Bronze Age ‘Tomb Of Dracula’ series was the fact that it took place in the Marvel Universe, setting up the possibility of Iron Man, Shang-Chi or Howard The Duck going head-to-head with the scion of Transylvania.  This is usually pretty cool, bordering on the ridiculous, but when you think about it, it might be good to have certain Marvel folk on your side.  Hydro-Man, for one, or perhaps the Silver Surfer?  Indeed, there are a lot of folks who would be helpful in fighting Dracula, leading to today’s revenant query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) might also take King Shark, as long as it was gonna be a straight fight against a Dracula, asking: What fictional character would you want in your corner for fighting Dracula?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Hellboy, no question. He’ll most likely get the job done, get the crap knocked out of him in an entertaining manner, and probably make a lot of wisecracks to defuse the tension.

  2. Well, the quick and dirty answer might be Groot, since he is basically a living breathing stake.

    If we’re jumping outside characters originating from comics, I wouldn’t mind having Harry Dresden in my corner. He’s rocked more than his fair share of vampires.
