Mahershala's Blade next to Kit Harrington's Black Knight could be amazing.
    I'd buy the eff outta that!

    Blade the Vampire Hunter #2 Aug 1994
    "Red Prophet"
    The mysterious Bible John stands revealed,


    as well as clues to the secret of Dracula himself.
    Blade confronts the dark lord, Dracula, in a vampire-infested night club.

    And the dance of the undead is nothing compared to the rug-cutting Blade is going to do.

    hmm. well, I guess they need to commission a designer to come up with something. should they focus on a symbol based on a vampire, teeth, a sword, or something else?

    Blade should always HATE vampires with a passion. he shouldn't take on any aspect of them with pride. Even if he is PART Vampire, it's not something he should ever revel in. So I would say a blade of some kind.

    Honestly at the end of Siege of Darkness, all the surviving Midnight Sons DID have this mystically branded onto their arms. Supposed to be able to summon the others if they were REALLY needed.

    Has it ever been brought up again? As warriors against the supernatural, it's easily a symbol he could latch onto AND feel in-character.

    symbols are overrated. Unless your rocking a leotard and a cape I don't see the need.

    Blade isn't a campy hero
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    No, but he exists in a world of them, and for marketing reasons alone would probably benefit a little from having a logo. Blade's not a character you're gonna be putting on lunch boxes, but you will be putting him on hats and t-shirts and random Hot Topic items (once he hits the MCU, merchandise is a given).

    They could go the BP route and just use a stylized version of his face. The fanged smile/grimace and sunglasses might provide enough foundation for merch to work with. If they go with a straight up logo the character himself wears (which doesn't seem entirely necessary but wouldn't hurt either), I agree that anything vampire related isn't something Blade would wear on his gear, but since his name is *Blade* the obvious answer to "what should his logo be" is a blade, likely something shaped (at least vaguely) like a stake.

    A stylized version of his name or a cool image of him works just fine. Others don't have logos like Luke Cage. Hulk doesn't have a logo and he's doing just fine. Wolverine doesn't have a logo. The BP example you provided isn't really a great one either. Bottom line is it just doesn't fit the character. Logos aren't needed for marketing by any stretch. He's already gonna have the Marvel logo so unless you want to launch a fashion line it's superfluous.

    The best and most recognizable logos are Batman and Superman then there are about a dozen others that are okay/recognizable. Most importantly those logos fit the characters. Outside of that any other logos are forgettable or unknown and don't really add any value to the character. I'd argue once you get outside of Ironman or Spider-Man maybe Captain America (which is really the flag). Most heroes even popular ones don't have logos. Bucky has the start but that doesn't really count. Teams like FF4 and X-men do, but Guardians of the Galaxy or characters like Namor, etc. don't. Heck, even popular characters like WW and Captain Marvel don't have logos that resonate with the general public.

    Having a logo on Blade is silly. It would just be done to have a logo and not really add anything characterwise or marketing-wise. He's not a spandex-wearing character. If you're going to affix something that's a true log it should be in mythos like an ancient vampire hunter orders crest or sigil (but he doesn't have anything like that at the moment). Trying to afix something like that to Blade hurts more then help. He's in his own lane and when Marvel recognizes that we tend to get the best version of Blade
    The J-man

    All that stuff was seemingly dropped when the Midnight Sons banner was dropped. Which was a shame since I thought it was pretty cool. Sadly not a whole lot of them are around to really answer the call even if it was used. I think Blaze, Morbeius, and Blade are the only 3 left who actually went through the ceremony.

    You know, now that I think about it, there are fairly few of them left. That being said, I wish we would see the different members at least talk to each other once in a while.

    For the record... my only "issue"( You can barely even call it that it's more of a suggestion) is that Blade's black, on black, on black, attire seems visually boring in some images. He needs a bit of color somewhere in his uniform, in my personal opinion. Even if it's harkening back to Snipes red liner in the trench coat.

    A symbol would be cool and a decent break in the overall uniform but other elements can be added to create a more catching visual effect.
