When you mention Marvel Comics around just about anyone these days, the first thing they’ll start talking about with you is superheroes. Certainly they’ll talk about superhero movies, because Marvel has largely owned the big screen for some years now when it comes to that market. You may even get some people launching into excited conversations about superheroes on the small screen; especially if those discussions revolve around Netflix’s offerings.
Occasionally, you even get people that mention a character like Blade. Annoyingly, and more than just occasionally, there are people that will respond with surprise when the film Blade is brought up in a discussion about Marvel movies. This is because a lot of the general public doesn’t seem to realize that Blade, vampires in general, and a whole lot more creations that fall under the monstrous and supernatural have been well established parts of the Marvel Universe for decades now. It’s well past time that something happens to rectify this.
