* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: The original 1970s run of had plenty of these moments. In the ''Giant-Size Werewolf'' #5 tale "The Plunder of Paingloss", at the climax of one of the darker and more surreal stories in this series (which, for its era, was saying something), furry Jack Russel gets his claws into Sardanus, a gigantic demigod who's revealed to be [[TheManBehindTheCurtain in reality a skinny dude in tighty-whities]]. The enraged werewolf "ripped him to shreds anyway" in a red-washed panel that featured the near-naked dude straddled by the werewolf, whose bloody claws were ripping the dude's belly open. The ribbons of gore and screaming look of horror on the face of Sardanus were in no way mitigated by the ECComics device of single-hue coloring. The next panel featured a triumphant Paingloss and the werewolf standing over Sardanus' literally gutted body, as seen from a foreground view over the dead man's shredded abdomen. For 1975, this was about as terrifying as Code-approved comics could get. Someone at the editorial office was asleep at the switch when that issue went through!

* DefaceOfTheMoon: Jack dreams about several large companies using the moon as the world's biggest billboard; it upsets him tremendously that someone would deface "his love" like that. He is glad when he wakes up because he's sure such a thing could never happen in real life, apparently oblivious to the newspaper with a headline reading "NASA says ads on moon a possibility" lying on his bed.


Added DiffLines:

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The spelling of Jack's father's first name alternates between Philip and Phillip. Buck Cowan's last name is misspelled as Cohen in one issue.

'''Werewolf by Night''' (Jack Russell, birthname Jacob Russoff) is a comic book character and star of the series by the same name, created by writer Creator/GerryConway and artist Mike Ploog as a direct response to UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode Authority's 1971 rule revision that allowed werewolves to be portrayed. The character debuted in ''[[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel]] Spotlight'' vol. 1 #2 in February of 1972 and was granted his own title which ran for 43 issues (September, 1972 - March, 1977). In 1998 ''Werewolf by Night'' was given a short-lived {{revival}}, which [[CutShort sadly was]] {{cancelled}} [[ScrewedByTheNetwork before it could]] [[LeftHanging reach a conclusion]].

Outside of his own titles, Jack has weaved his way through a number of other Marvel comic books over the years, such as ''ComicBook/SpiderWoman'', ''Comicbook/MoonKnight'', ''West Coast [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avengers]]'', ''ComicBook/{{X-Factor}}'', ''ComicBook/MarvelZombies'' and ''Comicbook/DoctorStrange: Sorcerer Supreme''. In 2009 there was the the four-part ''Dead of Night Featuring Werewolf by Night'' as part of Marvel's [[Creator/MarvelMAX MAX]] imprint, providing an [[AlternateUniverse alternate]] and [[DarkerAndEdgier mature]] take on the character.

** Two storylines published near-simultaneously feature two very different versions of Jack: in ''[[Comicbook/ThePunisher Punisher]]'' v7 #11-14 and ''Legion of Monsters'' #1-4 he’s a [[FieryRedhead hotheaded]] JerkAss who’s usually in for a fight; in ''[[{{ComicBook/X-Factor}} X-Factor]]'' #222-224 he’s a mildly funny, well-mannered guy protecting others.

* SpeechBubbles: Occur in many variations, changing from series to series. For example, in ''[=WbN=]'' vol.1 #42-43, Jack’s speech bubbles get thick, jagged edges when in werewolf form (a police officer describes it as "Mercedes [=McCambridge=] in ''Film/TheExorcist''"). In ''[[{{ComicBook/X-Factor}} X-Factor]]'' his speech bubbles are black with white lettering.
