Blade made regular appearances again during the "Midnight Sons" story arc in the 1990s, which led to the character being featured on the then running Spider-Man cartoon, which gave Blade new powers. ''That'' led to a mildly successful trilogy of movies based off the cartoon, best known for building enough confidence for Marvel to launch films of better named properties like ''Film/XMen1'' and ''Film/SpiderMan1.'' Attempts to reproduce that success for Blade in the comics failed but the adaptations did permanently change how the character would be used.

A VampireHunter who debuted in ''Comicbook/TheTombOfDracula'' #10 (July, 1973). Blade grudgingly ended up working with the vampire detective Hannibal King against their common enemy, Deacon Frost and eventually joined up with the other surviving hunters in the book and {{Dracula}}, to defeat [[RoboticPsychopath Doctor Sun]]. From there, Blade made occasional appearances in similarly themed Marvel comics such as ''ComicBook/DoctorStrange'', ''Comicbook/GhostRider'' and ''ComicBook/{{Morbius}}'' or in books like ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' whenever writers remembered him and had an excuse to use a vampire hunter. King became his best friend while Dracula remains one of his most hated foes.

Initially he was tainted but mostly human, having a few of the vampire perks with drawbacks so few and negligible they were rarely mentioned at all. He's since gained more of the undead's strengths but has to deal with the issue of blood thirst. Mentally, his detachment from other people was traditionally presented as troubling and something he'd have to overcome. Now it's kind of accepted as who he is. After Marvel's ''Comicbook/CivilWar'' crossover event the character has also been prone to show up in stories dealing with government organizations, such as the Vanguard in ''Comicbook/MarvelComicsPresents'' and [=MI13=] that followed in the wake of ''ComicBook/SecretInvasion''.

* {{Expy}}: Blade in the original comics was an admitted {{Expy}} of {{Blaxploitation}} characters, particularly John {{Shaft}} right down to the afro and brown leather jacket. He picked up the ebonics from Americans later, though - he's native to Britain.
