Superman vs Vampires

Last 2 weeks it was Demons this time its the UNDEAD CREATURES OF THE NIGHT VAMPIRES this will be a quick over view of some of these stories as there are a few of them. 

In Action Comics Annual #1 with art by Art Adams and Story by John Byrne

Superman and Batman are ina town trying to investigate some disappearance that have been traced from Gotham and Metropolis and encounter Vampires. Batman is willing to kill them because theu the multiverse is aware they exsist as he found Dracula in Red Rain. They encpunter a girl named Skeeter who looks like thr planters peanut commercial girl. I first became aware of this story in a Wizard Magazine article regsrding disturbing stories in comics.  

 Superman Man of Steel #14 and Superman #70 by Louise Simonson Jon Bogdanove and Dan Jurgens

In a two part story involving Robin the Boy Wonder aka Tim Drake the best Robin EVER!!! In the story the Night of the Bat.

Robin and Superman team up to fight Vampires with Jimmy and Lucy Lane Lois younger sister caught in the middle. The Vampire they fight is a Nosferatu style like the movoe or Vampire the Masqurade story line. The thing that really struck me about this issue was the cover where Lucy is biting Superman on the neck. 

In Superman #180 by Jeff Loeb and Ian Churchhill Lois and Clark visit the home of COUNT DRACULA. 

Batman and Superman had a mini series 

Superman and Batman vs Werewolves and Vampires 

Worlds Finest Comics #249 a book I have not read but has Batman and the Phantom Stranger Investigating Vampirea only to find out its ……really SUPERMAN

Superman vs Demons Part2

The Never Ending Battle….IN HELL!!!!

The Blaze/Satanus War ran in Adventures of Superman#493…Action Comics#680..Man of Steel#15 ….and Superman#71by Roger Stern Jerry Ordway, Tom Grummet, Louise Simonson, Brett Breeding Mike Carlin and the rest of the Superman team at that time. 

Fosworth the former editor and chief of the Daily Planet tried to kill himself and was saved by Superman at the behest of the demon Blaze in the guise of an Angel. Blaze begins sending demons thru mirrors to attack the people in the Newstime building. Lord Satanus arrives in his first post crisis apearence to stop his SISTER!!! Yup its a war of siblings with Superman Jimmy Lois Perry and Alice caught in the middle. Jimmy while taping Turtle Boy gets a vision from Jerry White that BLAZE has returned. Alice and Perry are guided by Jerry White,into a church to save the people of the News Time building. Its revealed that Satanus is in fact Newstime Editor and Cheif Colin Thornton. He is very much portrayed as the lesser of two evils between him and his sister, but that dont mean you shoukd trust him. Superman and Satanus must stop Blaze even if its costs Superman his soul. 

This was a great follow up to the Soul Search storyline I posted about last week. Out of all the art in this story I love the way Grummet draws Lord Satanus the most. Even tho its only two panels he really has a great look about him showing he lives up to his namesake. The depiction of HeLL or Limbo the dark dimension is a bit different than last we saw but that might be the interpertaion of the art team. 

In an interview on the Superman podcast From Crisis to Crisis Jerry Ordwat talks about wanting to do something different after several normal superhero battles and with someone who is pure unrelenting evil. Unlike Lex Luthor or Ugly Manheim Blaze could not be reasoned with.

Satanus would return during the rebuiling of Metropolis and Lex Luthor run for President. Blaze would return in Adventures of Superman #500 to torment Johnathan Kent as he looks for Clark in the afterlife. Both would play a huge part of the Reign in Hell crossover in 2008.
