Fangs God It’s Friday: Fallon Grey

Marvel Comics reveals Blade's daughter Fallon GreyFor this Fangs God It’s Friday, I’m bringing you a vampire hunter no one has seen in action yet, but you all probably know her father’s handiwork. Meet Fallon Grey, the daughter of the most bad ass vampire hunter ever: Blade, the Daywalker.

At this past San Deigo Comic-Con, Marvel revealed Fallon for the first time. She’s going to co-star with her father in a new series about Blade and his horrifying adventures in suburbia (no, seriously). Personally, I think this is pretty cool. There are some people upset for various reasons (worried a domesticated Blade will lose his bite, that this is new female Blade will simply be a gimmick, etc.).

What amuses me is that Fallon is going to be 16-years-old, the same age as my teenage vampire hunter Gidion Keep. They’re also children of vampire hunters who are moving away from the hunt (or trying to, at least). Unlike Gidion, Fallon is what writer Tim Seeley is calling the “Anti-Peter Parker.” In an interview on Marvel.com, Seeley says, “She’s popular, she’s well-liked and it seems like the world is her oyster.” Marvel has revealed a limited amount of artwork by series artist Logan Faerber to show us what Fallon will look like. So far, I think it works, and I’ll be eager to buy the first issue when it comes out in October.

What’s especially interesting is that Seeley plans to avoid focusing on a big, bad vampire threat at first. Instead, he’ll bring in monsters of his own creation called Black Genus. Still, you know it’s only a matter of time before we get to see Fallon take on some bloodsuckers.

What’s your take? Is Marvel onto a brilliant idea, or will they ruin one of the world’s coolest vampire hunters by turning him into a single dad?
