When Did Morbius First Appear in Comics?
Morbius was the brainchild of writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane, making his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 in Oct. 1971. He was originally created to be one of Spider-Man's rogues gallery, but soon spun off into other adventures. By the mid-1970s, he was frequently seen in a horror comic series called Vampire Tales. In 1992, the character was rebooted in the series Morbius the Living Vampire.
