The Justice League had Bloodwynd.  The Avengers had a Bloodstone, as did nextwave, while the Valiant Universe gave us Bloodshot and another role for Vin Diesel.  Image Comics may have been the king of the blood naming, with Bloodstrike, Youngblood, Blood Simple and The Bloodpool, though, now that I think of it, one of those may be a Coen Brothers movie.  But the best use of blood in a super-name might have to be a minor character named Drew Blood, who serves as both a pun and a name that I’m surprised ECW never put in a wrestling match, leading to today’s exsanguinated query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) finds it confusing that Liefeld’s character Bloodwulf isn’t spelled Bludwulf or Bloodwoolf, asking: What sanguinated team name or alias constitutes the BEST use of blood?

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.
