Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane, Dr. Michael Morbius Ph.D. gained vampiric abilities and physical traits after a biochemical experiment that was supposed to cure him of a rare blood disease went disastrous. The character made his first appearance as an antagonist in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 (Oct. 1971), but with time Morbius went on to become a hero in his own series and other titles.
