Notes

  • Morbius first appeared in the Spider-Man weekly comics as a foe, but became an ally decades later.
  • Because he is half-vampire, it earnt him a place in the Castle of Horror comic by the Portman Distribution. It was short-lived, however, when Marvel stopped the deal because of a complaint from Marvel UK.

Trivia

Most of Morbius's appearances in British comics were reprints of American material.
