Panel 1 - TEXT: [FAST FORWARD] LOUISINA SWAMPLANDS
Two hillbillies in a tiny boat. TIBY is bearded and in a
flannel with a hanging gut sticking out so far it looks as
if its going to explode. Tiby is standing in the boat
practically about to tip it. Tiby is holding a long pole
that's in the swamp water. POON is an older man no more
than 100 pounds sitting and chewing a straw.
POON: Dangit Tiby! You're tippin the boat.
TIBY: Pa, I can't stick this gator unless I can see it
movin' down there.
Panel 2 - Smaller panel shows an aerial view of a large black
silhouette seen through the swamp. Above it is a

Panel 1 - TEXT: [PAUSE]
Large panel shows a human figure lunge out of the water.
This creature is a living mass of black, slimy leeches.
Its thick body kind of resembles the Michelin tire man,
but with mittens. Swamp algae hangs from its body. Water
splashes causing comotion.
Panel 2 - TEXT: [PLAY]
Two sharp clawed hands covered in black leeches attach
and squeeze Tiby's large gut and burst it like two large
hands working together to pop a zit. The exposed areas of
the hands are burning and smoking from the sunlight.
Panel 1 - TEXT: [REWIND] STRANGE'S SANCTUM SANTORUM.
RINTRAH stands before the open vampire dimension with
hands stretched working with magic.
NAMOR THE SUBMARINER is thinking. Others in the room
are talking or doing other things such as PROFESSOR
XAVIER, BLACK BOLT and IRON MAN.
RINTRAH: I know you've said nothing was in this dimension,
but I sense otherwise.
PROFESSOR X: Me too at first, maybe a wormhole influx..
some kind of disruption..because I'm getting
nothing. The energies probably aren't living
or even lifeforms at all.
Panel 2 - Iron Man and Professor X look at each other secretly as
Rintrah keeps doing magic on the doorway in front of them.
Panel 3 - Iron Man stands next to Rintrah.

to see if you can find anything out.
Panel 4 - Rintrah stops the magic. His dark evil looking horned head
towers over Iron Man.
RINTRAH: So be it. I will go elsewhere and try spells, but
Strange has never told me of this dimension. He
kept it from me. I don't like this.
Panel 1 - TEXT: [FAST FORWARD] NEW YORK CITY
Blade walks down a shaded alleyway during the day
with a young four-eyed white kid, LEAK. They are both
dressed in bright pink and purples. A medical manual is
strapped and hanging from Leak's chest. A gasoline can

the vampires cause I'm really scared.
BLADE: Well, Leak, I sure don't want to purposely look

the whole city was all webbing.
Panel 3 - Larger panel shows gooey looking cocoon webs that drown

an overwhelming amount of green, slimy drool coming down
from his fangs. His fangs face every direction in a mouth
Blade is held by six younger Spider-Man vampires all in
the real Spider-Man's different costumes. Some of the
vampires are smelling Blade.
A VAMPIRE: Can't see...but...can smell..his blood...its
not human...he's one of us.
ANOTHER VAMPIRE: He can still...bleed...and die.
BLADE: Spider-Man, not so friendly anymore. And you've

Panel 1 - TEXT: [REWIND] AVENGERS MEDICAL FACILITY
Dr. Strange lays in a coma in his hospital bed with many
wires connected from his body to computer terminals.
Seen in the room is REED RICHARDS, THE THING, INVISIBLE
WOMAN and THE HUMAN TORCH (flame off) all in their
Fantastic Four costumes.
Panel 2 - Reed has some fancy device held over Strange's body.
Standing next to him is Black Bolt.
REED RICHARDS: Do you see this?
Panel 3 - BEAST is sitting at a computer. His head turned towards

at today? You lent me this magnifier two months ago.

face showing on screen many closeup views of cracks like
soil from a desert drought. The rest of Strange's face
seems to be growing pale and gray.
Panel 6 - Larger panel shows Reed, Pym and Beast talking.
DR. HANK PYM (GIANT MAN): All his vitals are weak, but
holding. His skin is changing
and I'm clueless why.
BEAST: Any ideas Reed?
REED: There is one, a foe we've battled several times
called 'The Angler'. He was a being with an uneven
equilibrium and shape who can enter any wall or
our vaults gaining access by side-stepping into
dimenstions you could say. These temporary, split-
second doorways caused high levels of radiation
poisoning to staff in the baxter building, obviously
not to us though.
BEAST: Radiation..hmm. A possibility.
REED: We had to destroy parts of the building and rebuild
because of it, it happened often, couple times a
year for various reasons: Annihilus, my inventions,
or other villans. Why do you think I was so lenient
on letting Johnny and Ben mess the place up. Plus
our employees had to wear these new radiation
necklace's for now on, its based off of my own
electro magnetivity technology.
DR. HANK PYM: Makes sense. There must have been a window
of time when Strange was unconcious where
he hadn't had a mystical aura of protection
or forcefield or something activated and he
was poisoned from radiation from the open
BEAST: I'll start testing right away.
Panel 1 - TEXT: [FAST FORWARD] BLADE'S BADASS FORTRESS OF JUNK
Blade and Leak walk a dusty barren path. To either side
of them are countless decapitated superhero and villans
heads impaled on spears.
Some heads seen are of Songbird, Havok, Hammerhead, Whizzer,
the biker dude from D.P.7, Beak, Crossbones, and Howard the
Duck. All heads have vampire fangs, Beak haS some strange
multiple rows of smaller fangs, like shark's teeth.
Panel 2 - Blade and Leak approach a Mad Max, Fallout type facility
made of metal panels and other salvaged junk. Its as big
as a small high school. There are many humans, heroes
and villans working on the place.
VULTURE flies solar panels to workers on the roof.
Panel 3 - A scrap truck pulls up with alot of scrap in the bed.
Panel 4 - Shows NORTHSTAR, NIGHTCRAWLER, and BULLSEYE in the cab
all dressed in pink and purples. Blade looks in.
NIGHTCRAWLER: Zers not much admantiums out zere but we
BULLSEYE: We need to go further out.
BULLSEYE: But we..
BLADE: I said no! You would't last ten minutes! I make
the rules around here, moral rules! If you have
something worthy to argue about then you can
debate it, this is undebateable! You're lucky
I let you trouble makers even do these chores.
Panel 5 - JUGGERNAUT stands in the back of the truck holding a
refridgerator over his head. DEADPOOL stands next to

Panel 1 - TEXT: [REWIND] AVENGERS MEDICAL FACILITY
Its night, everyone is gone, but Beast who works at his
computer talking to self.
BEAST: Molecular destabilization with Organic Elasticity..
hmm? Lets try something else..no matter what he's
had cardiac arrest. Its what came after that isn't
boding well with his body. And no radation either.
STRANGE'S LIFE SUPPORT MACHINE (O.S.) Beep!
Panel 2 - Smaller panel shows Strange's face quietly sleeping.
Panel 3 - Same as panel 2, but shows eye movement under eyelids.
Panel 4 - Beast stands over Dr. Strange concerned.
BEAST: Don't worry...I'm going to find out what's wrong
Panel 5 - TEXT: [FAST FORWARD] BLADE'S BADASS FORTRESS OF JUNK
Its night and Blade's hideout glows as bright as the sun
lighting up the dark desert around it.
Panel 6 - Professor Xavier sits in his chair in a glassed off area
like office. Others sitting are Leak, Doctor Doom, Nomad
and Darkhawk. Deadpool leans against the wall.
Seen through the glass is the entertainment area. Many
people walk around or sit and watch a scary vampire movie
on a big screen tv. JUBILEE throws popcorn at TOAD. CABLE,
GAMBIT and PIP THE TROLL play cards at a table.
DOCTOR DOOM: As long as there's a sun over our head
we'll be safe. They can't come out in the
day, and by the time night falls we will
have absorbed so much energy with the
solar panel system I devised, that it all
just gets shot back out.
NOMAD: It doesn't hurt that they don't even know we're
DARKHAWK: Well that's probably because they're too
occupied hunting humans in the cities.
Panel 7 - Smaller panel shows Blade coming into the room, jumping
on the table before Doctor Doom as if attacking him.
Panel 8 - Smaller panel shows Blade ramming Spiderman's skull onto
Panel 9 - Shows Doctor Doom turned looking up at the trophies of
vampire heads like Deer mounts. Heads seen and labeled
by name are, Captain America, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer,
Everyone in the room is dressed in pink and purple, even
Blade has jumped off the table. Others admire the heads.
BLADE: Here's your damn head doom.
DEADPOOL: Blade you give great head!
DOCTOR DOOM: Thank you Blade, I require more powerful
game, it'll show how strong we've grown.
I love my trophies.
NOMAD: Kind of sick and disgusting if you ask me.
DEADPOOL: More like Ted Nugent's wet dream.
Panel 1 - Shows another view inside office.
BLADE: Question is, how many more survivors could be out
there. There's got to be more, we can never give
up. And if we do stumble upon more, we might need
to build a bigger place.
DARKHAWK: You think that's wise? Shouldn't we hide
ourselves, underground maybe.
PROFESSOR X: Nothing is out of the question if we
ever find someone like Magneto. I still
actually sense him sometimes, its a
riddle. I think he may still be alive,
or not, maybe he's changed and that's
why I'm having trouble. I don't see why
if he's out there why he would hide his
thoughts by wearing a helmet.
PROFESSOR X (CONT'D): Anyways, we have a new mission,
not a hunt. There are more
survivors not far from here.
DARKHAWK: I miss action so much. Its not part of my life
anymore I know. Its taken years and I'm still
not getting used to loafing around, or sweating
in the heat all day long.
DEADPOOL: Hey! Gardening and Vaccuuming isn't just for a
woman anymore, this is the vampire era buddy,
wakeup and smell the change!
NOMAD: Those things are very important. We can't rely on
canned goods forever.
Panel 2 - Shows Professor Xavier's face.
PROFESSOR X: You don't need all four, just take Simon.
Panel 3 - WONDERMAN stands in the doorway in a pink and purple
WONDERMAN: You wanted me Professor?
BLADE: Wonderman, looks like we got another search and
WONDERMAN: Should I go get the others?
BLADE: Just us.
WONDERMAN: Ready when you are.
Panel 4 - Its daytime. Leak, Blade and Wonderman are driving in
a fast car.
LEAK: Tell me about the water vampires Blade...no..tell me
about the rock vampires.
WONDERMAN: Does this kid ever stop asking questions?
BLADE: He don't really know much. When I got him out of
that adamantium lab, he was hooked up to machines,
and I think they created him from scratch, he
doesn't know much of anything. He's a quick learner
and really smart. Right kid?
LEAK: Adamantium is a metal right?
BLADE: Its inpenetrable, not even your blood affects it.
I guess they failed at whatever experiment they
were doing. Kid already knows how to stitch
himself up. Maybe he'll learn to be a surgeon if
he ever finishes that manual.
LEAK: I'm almost done!
Panel 5 - Shows side view of car speeding.
BLADE: There's all kinds of vampires. The basic dwellers
like Spider-Man are the meanest, but easy to
kill. They control all the cities, they're countless,
billions. Water vampires are like the most powerful
though, they are impossible to find living in water.
They're like the silent kings.
WONDERMAN: That's why Namor, you know the guy with the
pointy ears you see sometimes, is so important.
We're nowhere near a strategy for those water
suckers, probably never will.
Panel 6 - Shows Leak's P.O.V. from backseat looking at the back of
BLADE: Rock vampires are the grossest and meanest, you
can read all about it in Xavier's new world history
book. Its said that Doctor Strange opened a doorway
to a dimension he had previously banished all
vampires in existence to. In this dimension there
were mountains, land and swamps, and the vampires
fought. Kind of cruel if you ask me, to throw them
all in there.
WONDERMAN (O.S.) What other solution is there?
BLADE: I don't know, kill em all, put them out of their
misery. Well, the land dwellers killed the rock
vampires making them retreat to the mountains
forced to feed off of nothing really.
Panel 7 - Show's Leak's P.O.V from backseat now looking at the
back of Wonderman's head.
WONDERMAN: They were starved, sickly creatures who
survived only by sucking scum and bacteria
off of rocks. This of course is why they
have such ugly, twisted, mangled teeth.
LEAK: Wow. Those dwellers were mean to them.
Panel 1 - Blade, Leak and Wonderman stand outside the car facing
a small building.
WONDERMAN: Here we are.
BLADE: Now Leak try not to loose your crossbow this time.
BLADE: Its getting dark soon, we better hurry.
Panel 2 - Inside the building only some lights are on, many are
Panel 3 - Smaller panel shows them walking in different directions.
Panel 4 - They now stand back together.
LEAK: I can't find anyone.
WONDERMAN: There's nothing here.
BLADE: Wait...I sense something.
Panel 5 - Larger panel shows CLOAK with fangs jumping off some
metal cabinet from the air. His Cloak is held open wide
like Batman gliding with an opened cape.
Inside Cloak's Cape there are about a dozen of those
Rock vampires heads coming at them as well with twisted,
bent, broken teeth.
Panel 6 - Rock vampires leap out of the Cloak to grab Blade and
Leak. Wonderman had dodged the attack.
WONDERMAN: Its Cloak!
Panel 7 - Smaller panel show's creepy vampire face coming at Leak.
Panel 8 - Leak fires silver spike into upper gums of Rock vampire.
Panel 1 - Wonderman has a tough angry desire of a smirk and punches
Cloak in his head while Blade is fighting a vampire.
Panel 2 - Wonderman dives into the blackness of Cloak's cape. Also
shows a vampire shriveling up and becoming petrified
after being killed.
LEAK: What's Wonderman doing.
BLADE: Its alright kid, keep killing these suckers.
Panel 3 - Blade jumps and grabs Cloak in a headlock forcing him to
open up his cape and having it flap loose.
Panel 4 - Wonderman leaps out of the cape holding two people.
Panel 5 - A thin gray haired man with redish tattered clothing
sits holding his head. A human woman stands. There are
many scabbed cuts on her body, and she is dirty with
Panel 6 - Eight more Rock vampires jump out of Cloak's cape
standing before everyone.
Panel 7 - The human woman now stands between them and the heroes.
HUMAN WOMAN: No!
Panel 8 - Wonderman glows with ionic energy and makes a fist ready
to throw his punch.
Panel 9 - Smaller panel shows Wonderman's fist flying in the air.
Panel 10- Wonderman punches a shield made from spinach and fruit
cocktail cans that is now protecting the vampires with
startled faces from Wonderman's fist.
Panel 1 - Gigantic panel shows MAGNETO, very thin, some cuts on
his body in red tattered clothes.
MAGNETO: She said no!
Panel 2 - Wonderman and Blade stand in shock.
MAGNETO: These creatures mean you no harm. We were their
prisoners, but they cut us in small areas only
when their hunger was too great.
WONDERMAN: They kept you against your will.
MAGNETO: Yes. They don't speak, but I assure you compassion
has grown out of their starving, suffering and
poverty by the other vampire groups. They pity us
and relate to us, but still must restrain us.
Cloak was busy dodging many attacks by vampires
nonstop for years until we came here, then we
waited. Even if I wanted to escape there are no
metals in Cloaks dark dimension. Eventually they
let us out to bring in food.
Panel 3 - Smaller panel shows Wonderman looking over at a remaining
pile of empty spinach and fruit cocktail cans.
WONDERMAN: Bet you're sick of Spinach and Fruit Cocktail.
Panel 4 - Another view of room.
MAGNETO: When you're starving its amazing what feats you
accomplish. We never escaped. Its not like
BLADE: Stockholm syndrome is were prisoners are held so
long by their captors they think that's how life
is supposed to be.
MAGNETO: In a way, but no. I too am succeptable to a
vampire attack. Too many close calls as it is.
And I know powers are slightly weakened when you
become a vampire, but still...
LEAK: You're the master of magnetism.
MAGNETO: Indeed. My power is so immense, if I were to be
changed I could control everything. These
creatures however have always been. Its as if
they've learned from being what they are for
so long. I feel as if I must protect them like
my own children. When they hunger they hesitate
and let you know how bad they hurt, and they know
if they bite you'll change, they are caring in
a way they cannot help themselves.
Panel 5 - Smaller panel shows Magneto cut himself on the arm.
Panel 6 - Magneto welcomes the vampires to take turns feeding on
him. The woman, ROSE ROMANO stands next to Magneto as
well letting them feed from her too.
ROSE ROMANO: My name is Rose Romano, I used to be a
city cop, now I'm just a bloodletter.
Panel 7 - Blade has his hands on his head concerned. Others are
seen in the room.
CLOAK: These creatures are humbled and aren't greedy.
WONDERMAN: What about you? How can you control it?
CLOAK: I don't know, I'm just different. I feed sometimes
but not as often as they do. Maybe because I have
BLADE: Xavier is going to kill me.
MAGNETO: No he isn't, I'm talking to him now.
Panel 8 - Leak sits crying and Rose Romano goes to him about to
ROSE ROMANO: Why are you crying?
WONDERMAN: Don't get too close.
Panel 9 - Leak's tears fall down his face landing on his clothes
ROSE ROMANO: Oh!
LEAK: Its sad how these vampires lived. I thought they
were like the others, they're not. Its so sad.
ROSE ROMANO: Many things in this world are sad. We just
have to think about the things that aren't
LEAK: So, I guess Mr. Strange wasn't bad for letting them
Panel 10- This is a neutrally tinted flashback of Avengers Medical
facility and Hank Pym walking back into Strange's room.
ROSE ROMANO: (V.O.) I guess its better for them now, but
Strange didn't let them out, he had
a heart attack and they accidentally
got out. Strange was the one who put
them in there. It was his cruelty
that put them there...
Full page. Shows Hank Pym standing in Strange's room now. Beast
hangs upside down from the ceilng changed into a demonic looking
vampire. Dr. Strange is in a turned motion facing Pym, his cape
is wide and ruffled. Its mystic colors and designs, and high
collars now make sense as a gothic attire more than mystical.
ROSE ROMANO: (V.O.) ...and it was Strange who created
most of them in the first place.
BLADE: (V.O.) Xavier's writing states that Dr. Strange
has always for all time really been
