Morbious, Ghost Rider, Blade, the Darkhold...
someone remember another of those guys.

Now with the Legion of Moster one-shots, I hope Marvel do something with all those character.
Also Dracula is missing.

> Having really enjoyed the first two LEGION OF MONSTERS issues that came out recently, I've also started reading the old b&w ESSENTIAL volumes relating to Marvel Monsters and horror characters. It got me wondering as to which characters are really considered as prominent Marvel Monsters, and which may yet receive ESSENTIAL volumes. This doesnt include Godzilla, or other giant monsters/aliens that had one-off appearances around that era.

I remember them, a product of 90s horror comics. The monsters I referred to where more the 70s-era horror, though. But yes, I was a big fan of the Midnight sons. They seemed to have a more supernatural slant though.

Dracula has a back-up story in the Morbius issue.
