Bloodstone was a character that I didn’t even know existed until I got into the Avengers 1959 books. It turns out that he’s actually a pretty cool character from the 1970s.
Bloodstone debuts in this character and he’s an interesting take on the whole monster character. He’s gained immortality and Captain America level physical abilities.
I also love on this cover, and well this issue, Bloodstone is fighting what appears to be the spiritual inspiration if not the great-grandfather of Erik Larsen’s Savage Dragon!
