* {{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.

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/{{Spider-Man}}'' 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.

* JokerImmunity: InUniverse. Dracula's died a few times, Blade was involved in at least two cases but since the guy's such a popular figure with cultists, evil religions, demons, vampires and such he keeps being resurrected. One time the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} were the guilty party (then again, it was an EnemyMine situation).

Blade made regular appearances again during the "Midnight Sons" story arc in the 1990s, which lead to the character being featured on the then running Spider-Man cartoon, which gave Blade new powers. ''That'' lead 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/XMen'' and ''Film/{{Spider-man}}''. Attempts to reproduce that success for Blade in the comics failed but the adaptations did permanently change how the character would be used.
