While Blade’s iconic costume which includes a leather trench coat over black tactical gear is unmistakably cool, Blade just got an even cooler costume!
Warning: Contains spoilers for the Death of Doctor Strange: Blade # 1
Marvel Comics’ greatest vampire hunter, Blade, has become an action icon since its first introduction and subsequent bloody adventures, and it just received a costume upgrade. While his actions showed how cool Blade is as a character, his costume only added to that character with his black tactical suit and leather trench coat making him look like a tough guy. to cook complete with the necessary skills. In his latest comic book adventure, however, Blade somehow gets an even cooler costume.
In the Death of Doctor Strange: Blade # 1 by Danny Lore and Dylan Burnett, Blade mourns the death of Doctor Strange with the vampire community, Blade acknowledging a temporary truce between him and the vampires. In fact, Dracula himself gave Blade the go-ahead to hang out with vampires without fear of being attacked. However, a small group of bloodsuckers decide when to strike out at the walking vampire hunter by day, which leads Blade and Dracula to join forces to keep them at bay.
When the rogue vampires attack Blade and Dracula, Blade was attending a party hosted by the Vampire King to which Dracula had personally invited him. The only catch with the invitation was that Blade had to dress appropriately, that is, in formal attire rather than his iconic trench coat, his tactical suit. Instead, Blade dresses in a black suit with an open-necked shirt and red clutch for a pop of color. Blade did not leave himself defenseless, however, as he wore a katana in a cinched sheath on the back of his fitted suit. Basically Blade looked good in this new outfit which also turned out to be a practical superhero costume.
Blade’s latest costume may be the coolest he’s ever worn, and while his usual costume is arguably still the best, both are a far cry from the outfit he’s been featured in. Blade debuted in Dracula’s tomb #ten by Marvin Wolfman and Gene Colan. When he first appeared, Blade immediately proved to be an expert vampire hunter and a fantastic addition to the Marvel Universe. While Blade himself was cool, his costume wasn’t. Equipped with a bright green jacket, an undershirt fully open with his entire chest exposed, and yellow sunglasses, Blade’s first outfit was lame enough and not the most practical for hunting down vampires at night.
While her first costume wasn’t her best, Marvel made up for Blade’s first look by gifting her with one of the coolest costumes in Marvel Comics. Now Marvel has stepped up the game by giving Blade an even cooler costume than its iconic one, and I hope he stays. With the combination of appearance and functionality, this new costume should be worn by Blade again in the not too distant future as it’s actually cooler than her leather trench coat look.
