Blood Hunt is not the first time that Miles Morales has teamed up with Blade. In Miles Morales: Spider-Man (2022) #11 by Cody Ziglar and Federica Mancin, Miles is joined by not only the vampire hunter but also Blade’s daughter, Bloodline, as they try to take down an ancient vampire called R’ym’r. In this issue, Blade gives a vampire-hunting spider-suit to Miles, with UV rays and other special features to “fight suckheads.” Bloodline aka Brielle Brooks is also set to appear in 2024’s major Marvel event with her father and reunite with her new web-slinging friend as they hunt vampires.

As the cover shows off a vampirized Miles Morales, it will be interesting to see how Blade and the other Avengers contend with one of the youngest heroes they’ve fought alongside becoming a bloodthirsty monster. It remains to be seen how Eric Brooks and his daughter Brielle will deal with this dreadful development. With his abilities, Miles could become one of the most terrifying vampire villains the heroes will have to fight during the event. Miles Morales’ fate in the Marvel Universe will be revealed when Spider-Man’s vampiric summer begins May 2024 in the crossover event Blood Hunt.
