My Top 5 Halloween Ready Super Heroes

  In this article I will list my picks of comic characters that need no costume. Just looking at them make you think of Halloween and just seems to put you in that spirit.

 
5. Morbius the Living Vampire may not be a true "vampire", since he was created by science and not magic. But, if he was applying for the job, I bet he would get it. He feeds on the living like the other vampires, he has the strength, speed, agility, and he can fly like the other vampires. Plus, he definitely looks the part. He deserves his vampire license before the Cullins at least. 


4. Sleepwalker, to those who don't know, is the stuff nightmares are made of. Well, not really.... but close. He protects human minds from creatures that would attack them there while they sleep. One look at this guy and Freddy would walk the other way. He has superhuman strength, speed, agility, and he can also amplify psychic powers. But his main power is the "Warp Gaze", which allows him to warp what ever he looks at into many different shapes.  He has sworn not to use it on living beings because it would cause great pain and suffering, while at the same time showing them there worst nightmare.



3. Ghoul is one of the lucky guys who caught the theta virus, a virus that gave people superpowers but also killed them. Luckily for him, his powers brought him back. He can't die because he pretty much is dead already. You blast off a limb, he can reattach it. And, if he can't find it, it will eventually grow back. He is always the funny guy of UltraForce, but seeing him always holding himself together while making jokes just made me think of Halloween.


2. Spawn reminds me of Halloween because.... well look at him! How can you look at him and not think of Halloween? With all the spikes, capes, chains, skulls, and the necroplasmic green glowing eyes? His backstory is that he was a government assassin who was betrayed and killed by his partner. He makes a deal with a demon to come back for vengeance, armed with every ghostly power under the sun. The love for his wife and son pushes him to fight against the forces of good and evil. He is just cool.


1. Ghost Rider: The Spirit of Vengeance looks like the Grim Reaper's bad*ss older brother. He walks around as a flaming skeleton, blasting flames in every direction. Again, like Spawn,  he makes a deal with a demon. Only this time it's to save his adopted father's life. But it blows up in his face, so he decides to use the powers he gained against the demon. But whenever I read Ghost Rider I think of Halloween.

So what did you think of my list? Agree? Disagree?

Great picks. Sleepwalker always takes me back, he just defines generic 90's Marvel characters so perfectly for me. Plus, he looks like a generic Halloween costume someone just threw together at the last minute. "Alien mask, Mom's purple scarf, my old sweats, I'm good to go!"

Oh yeah! Grundy and Blade would have also been pretty appropriate. And Werewolf By Night, though he's a bit too direct a copy of traditional Halloween monsters.

yeah i considered the goblins but decided that i were using to many marvel guys and wanted to mix it up a little blade and grundy was considered for a while as well but morbius beat blade out and ghoul cut grundy from the list.

This is a really great list. All of these characters would fit perfectly in a Halloween-themed comic extravaganza together. I especially like that Ghost Rider is number one, considering he is my SECOND favorite comic book character behind Iron Man (and before I catch any slack for that, I've been an Iron Man fan since the mid-80's, so I liked him LONG before it was cool to).

I know when I think Halloween, the Green Goblin and Hobgoblin also fit right in there. I mean... they use "pumpkin bombs"!

Thanks for giving us one last taste of Halloween this season!
