* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: "Michael Morbius" is far from a Greek name. On at least one occasion it's questioned why his first name is not Michalis (the Greek version of Michael), the answer simply being that "[his] mother preferred Michael". As for his last name: there is no 'b' sound in modern Greek (the letter β is pronounced as a fricative and often Romanized as "v") and -ius indicates a Latin origin.

* CameBackWrong: After he is killed by Switchblade, Morbius is resurrected without his soul, which has remained behind in the afterlife. On top of that, he hadn't been brought back to actual live, but instead had been revived as an undead being.

The ''Strange Tales'' story where Morbius goes to New Orleans to help Martine's niece. It is left on a {{cliffhanger}} too.too.
** The 8-page story in ''Amazing Fantasy vol 2 #17'' sets up multiple plotlines that were never followed up on, like Nikos having been found by real vampires and turned into one after Morbius killed him so he could seek revenge, the vampires saying they will meet again because Morbius has to pay for poisoning the pure bloodline of true vampires, or the implication that every person Morbius ever bit without killing them turned into a living vampire as well.

* {{Dehumanization}}: When he is captured by ComicBook/{{Hydra}} he is referred to as a "thing" and an "it" multiple times, likely because they only see him as a piece of equipment that can be used to achieve their goals.



* OddFriendship: With ComicBook/WerewolfByNight.



* OppositesAttract: Morbius and his fiancée Martine are each others' opposites in looks as well as personality. Morbius himself even wonders out loud how "an out and about society girl" could fall in love with "a morose scientist who can't stand the sun".



* TheSouthpaw: When Morbius is shown writing on something like a clipboard in vol. 1 he does so with his left hand.

to:

* TheSoulless: After having been killed by Blade, Morbius is accidentally resurrected as an undead, soulless being. He is later brought back to proper life, but is never shown to actually get back his soul. It doesn't really seem to change him at all; he mentions his emotions are numbed somewhat but he is portrayed the way he always was: as a deeply flawed but fundamentally good person and caring doctor. The fact that he's soulless hasn't been mentioned in years and most writers even seem to have forgotten entirely.

** HealingFactor
** MindManipulation
** NotQuiteFlight: His hollow bones[=/=]psionic powers enable him to glide, though to which extend [[DependingOnTheWriter varies from issue to issue]].

to:

** HealingFactor
HealingFactor: He was quite surprised to find out his transformation into a pseudo-vampire had given him accelerated healing, which he discovered when he was shot and woke up a little while later with the bullet hole gone. He can heal from a lot and does so faster than normal humans, but it definitely has its limits.
** MindManipulation
MindManipulation: It took quite a while before he learned he could hypnotize people, and isn't seen using it often. Over the years this power has also gradually been downplayed until he's become mostly a CharmPerson in that he can "strongly suggest" things to people.
** NotQuiteFlight: His hollow bones[=/=]psionic powers enable him to glide, though to which extend [[DependingOnTheWriter varies from issue to issue]]. Sometimes he'll fall out of the sky when the wind goes down, other times he's shown to be freely flying around, even indoors.
