    Default DC vs Vampires #1 preview and discussion

    Another Halloween, another horror themed Elseworld’s miniseries. Before those who hated DCeased run off, just remember this is an entirely different creative team (written by James Tynion and Matthew Rosenberg with Art by Otto Schmidt).

    Also this will probably be nice if like me you were a fan of I, Vampire during New 52 because Andrew Bennett is here. Now let’s just hope that Hal Jordan survives the first issue...the man does not fair well in Elseworlds. I will say it’s a good sign that we are starting out with characters like Zan and Hal.

    It's nice to see Andrew back and Hal in a prominent role .

    So has Hal ever actually met Andrew Bennett? I can’t imagine there was ever a point where Hal met a vampire.

    He's probably known to the League but the only hero I remember him interacting with was Batman.

    Will this comic come up it a good excuse why Wonder Woman can't just lasso everyone in the Justice League and ask who the vampire is?










    (Unless....she is the vampire...)

    There's no way Hal's making it out of this issue without getting bitten. That's how these things work. You take out the Big Guns first to raise the stakes. And it always...always comes down to the more street level characters in the end because the story wouldn't be particularly exciting otherwise.

    At least we're getting some kickass Otto Shmidt art out of it though

    If Superman becomes a vampire, wouldn't that make him exponentially weaker by kryptonian standards because he gets his power from the sun?

    I’d like to think his light powers would help with vampires but 1. Hal does not tend to fair well in elseworlds and 2,m. I’ve seen art of Sinestro murdered by vampires so....yeah don’t think Hal will do well. My money is on him being betrayed by Green Arrow.

    Even if this is Elseworlds, I'm still worried for Hal.

    I really hope Frankenstein and the Creature Commandos show up in this story. Would be a big missed opportunity if they didn’t.

    I don’t think Superman can become a vampire. there was a story in SUPERMAN #180, where he met Dracula and when he bit Kal he exploded. Superman is fueled by a vampire’s weakness.

    If these vampires can hypnotize people and turn them into their slaves, Superman could be a big target.
