    Because pretty much across the board, the instances of "The Wolverine treatment" we've seen have been to try and make their character line-up more diverse (Sam Wilson as the new Captain America, Laura Kinney as the new Wolverine, Amadeus Cho as the new Hulk, and so on). Making Else Bloodstone the new Blade would have done the exact opposite, so I'm sure the people at Marvel are aware that such a move would have gone over like a lead balloon.

    Fallon looks cute, and sounds like a good character, and the new design for Blade looks interesting. New sword looks pretty awesome (and big) .

    I haven't really read much Blade, but I think I might give this book a try .

    Was half-expecting Jubilee lol.

    Will give this a shot though. I do like Seeley.

    The TV series is decent too. Doesn't feature Wesley Snipes but I'd say it's an improvement on how awful Trinity was.

    I don't like the character designs or the fact that they're going non-vampire with it, but this looks interesting enough that I'll give it a shot. It's nice to see a book that doesn't have X-, Spider- or Avengers in the title anyway.

    I've actually never heard of anything from the Blade TV series. I don't think I've seen a single advertisement or commercial for it when it came out in 2006. Looks like it didn't last very long too.

    I've wanted to watch the 2011 Blade anime series by Madhouse, along with the other Madhouse Marvel anime series. Besides the live-action films, is the Blade anime a good introduction to the character?

    Really against blade having a teenage daughter sidekick and not too big on the designs. I was hype when I saw that blade was getting an ongoing but not interested in this take.

    Blade was established as "anti-supernatural" in the Midnight Sons, way back in the 90s, the movies pigeon-holed him back into just a vampire guy though. This guy is on the right track with that.

    I'm personally more interested in whether or not Fallon's daughter is an established character or not. Blade's had a few girlfriends. His first, I forget her name, is the most likely as she was said to cut Blade off for no reason in his second series and Blade never heard from her again.

    Blade is one of those people like Wolverine where their past makes it very easy to retcon in lovers and offspring without it seeming as out of nowhere.

    Still, anything to make Blade interesting again would be this. Although I would have also thought that comparisons between Blade and Wolverine would surface as well.
    It's like 'You get a child! You get a child! Everybody gets their own child... except Spider-Man.'
