* OurVampiresAreDifferent: In a [[TheMightyThor Thor]]-centric story, the Thunder God answers the distressed prayers of a colony of Vikings settled on an island off the coast of what will be the New World. He is too late, and they are all vampires. Some attack him on sight, and instantly turn to dust since, in a sense, he is a god and HolyBurnsEvil. Their master, {{Dracula}}'s Atlantean predecessor as Vampire Lord, Varnae, however, is almost invulnerable to him, since the gods of {{Atlantis}} that he worshipped are long gone.

The series had two volumes: the first ran for 175 issues from lates 80s to mid-90s and the second ran for 12 issues from 2007 to 2008.

!!This comic has the examples of:

* AnArmAndALeg: In issue 54, [[Comicbook/WerewolfByNight Jack Russell in his werewolf form]] attempts to chew his arm off in an attempt to escape the chains he locked himself up in.
* CallBack: In the hundreth issue, Wolverine and GhostRider use the Rider's explosive reaction to Wolverine's adamatium claws that they discovered in their first meeting many issues ago to their advantage.
* CaptainErsatz: One story had Comicbook/DoctorStrange finding himself against a [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]]-lookalike Eddy from an in-universe film series ''A Sleepless Night on Sequoia Street''.
* CartwrightCurse: Lampshaded when Wolverine is tied up next to wannabe-Sabertooth villain Cyber:
-->'''Cyber:''' Did you know you recite the names of your dead girlfriends when you're unconscious?
-->'''Wolverine:''' You should know, you killed one of 'em!
-->'''Cyber:''' Ahhh, who hasn't?
* CensorShadow: In a StoryArc showing the origin of Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} (running away from Project X), he's nude the entire time, but for shadows. The one time the artist couldn't justify any shadows, [[DigitalBikini he was suddenly in a pair of tighty-whities]].
* ADayInTheLimelight: Some stories would focus on supporting characters from other series, obscure characters and sometimes even villains.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In issue 54 regarding the werewolf transformation, the moon is written as a metaphor for a lover, the time leading up to the transformation as sex, and the actual change as orgasm.
* EvasiveFightThreadEpisode: Story with the title "Franchise/SpiderMan vs. Comicbook/{{Wolverine}}" showed an inconclusive fight between them (Spider-Man attacked a person whom he thought was impersonating Wolverine and stopped after a few traded blows once Wolvie proved he was the real deal).
* FearlessFool: An alien parasite who feeds on fear tried taking over various heroes, only to be driven out each time by them [[FaceYourFears overcoming their fears]]. In desperation, the starving parasite tried taking over a random human, only to die when he discovered to his horror that this human had no fear, and turned out to be Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}.
* FetalPositionRebirth: In issue 58. [[spoiler:[[Comicbook/WerewolfByNight The werewolf]] lies dying, prompting Jack to merge his human and wolf souls together, curing him.]]
* HorrorHost: One of the stories featuring the villain Nightmare had him acting as such.
* KnifeNut: Comicbook/{{Blade}}, as always, but this is taken to new heights in an issue in the second volume where a SizeShifter Micro-Max tries to escape him by shrinking only to have his path blocked by a knife.
-->'''Blade:''' I can amputate spiders with these things, Scott. I'm over a hundred years old, I've had the practice time.
* LampshadeHanging: Comicbook/SilverSurfer's ability to hear sounds in space gets the spotlight in the issue 69.
--> '''Silver Surfer''': Is that a sound-- here in the vacuum where no sound can carry? It seems impossible!
* LaserSight: In a story told in issues 39-41, a sniper aims main character [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules Hercules]] as a cliffhanger in one issue. In the following one, Hercules notices the laser sight in his chest, and dodges it easily. The story takes place circa 2385 AD, and still they make the same mistake.
* OrWasItADream: Franchise/SpiderMan is woken up by another Spider-Man ("Spider-Mech") who recruits him into the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men, a sort of neurotic parody of the Captain Britain Corps. When he is thrown back through the portal by a "Doctopoid" and lands back in bed, he naturally assumes it was all a dream, unaware that Spider-Mech's Subspace Spider Signal is still under the bed.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: In a [[TheMightyThor Thor]]-centric story, the Thunder God answers the distressed prayers of a colony of Vikings settled on an island off the coast of what will be the New World. He is too late, and they are all vampires. Some attack him on sight, and instantly turn to dust since, in a sense, he is a god and HolyBurnsEvil. Their master, {{Dracula}}'s Atlantean predecessor as Vampire Lord, Varnae, however, is almost invulnerable to him, since the gods of {{Atlantis}} that he worshipped are long gone.
* SuperReflexes: In the first issue, Comicbook/SilverSurfer broke free from energy shackles in less than a nano-second before they could sap away his powers.
* WolverinePublicity:
** There was hardly an issue in the 90s without Comicbook/{{Wolverine}} or Comicbook/GhostRider, usually by a way of a {{Crossover}} with some other Marvel character.
** Averted with Comicbook/ThePunisher, who appeared only twice in the comic's 175-issue run.
* YetAnotherChristmasCarol: In a Christmas issue, the three ghosts end up incorrectly trying to convert the ComicBook/FantasticFour's mailman, Willie Lumpkin. An address screw-up caused them to think they were targeting [[Franchise/SpiderMan J. Jonah Jameson]].
