This is the all encompassing Werewolf by Night thread. I put in a lot of time and research, and here it is. After reading much Marvel Horror comics past few weeks, I felt in time for the Halloween season to go ahead and put together Marvel Dracula's, Franken-Castle, as well the Morbius the Living Vampire respect threads. This one is to get people more familiar with my favorite Werewolf characters in comics.
Werewolf By Night is one of my personal favorite and underrated Marvel characters. So time for some respect. I poured over many comics, and here is some damn good feats I collected to use in debates.
Some Bio info of abilities, stats, and history. Older Bios, but the only ones we have.
Some things about the feats below, one must understand the difference in power of a Jack WBN compared to a Savage WBN. Savage is the original, and wolf in charge version. It is dumber, weaker, and over all inferior to a Jack controlled WBN. As in Jack Russel calling the shots inside the WBN Body.
As seen, the combination of them is far superior, and the fights with Jack over Savage versions show this.
While labeled around 2 toner in older Bios, he has shown strength far exceeding this in feats old and recent, and wit the fussion into a stronger werewolf, he is well over 2 tons.
Tearing limbs off, and caving skulls of Piranha men.
WBN bashes through the steel door.
WBN severely dents in a thicker steel door, and ends up breaking it down in a short time.
Lifts and smashes this solid stone statue.
Lifts and tosses a car.
Manages to hold down a pissed off Morbius.
Chokes out, and overpowers Spider Woman.
Blaze Ghost Rider states flat out WBN enrage rivals Blaze own strength.
WBN is not slow contrary to popular belief.
Fast enough to see, react, and get up faster than a swung scythe inches from his face. Not great but clear speed above even peak humans.
Stated that due to the werewolf senses, humans might as well be in slow motion. Dodging between point blank fire.
WBN easily dodging Gambit's very accurate energy attacks.
WBN at close range avoids Moonknight's crescent darts, backed by Moonknight's crazy accuracy.
With no warning, WBN dodges a mass AOE attack by the luck manipulating Long Shot himself trying to hit him. Might as well be dodging Deadshot or Bullseye.
Stated by Wolfsbane herself to be a near blur in speed as WBN takes out Bast and Cu Sith beings. Both beings wrecking the X Factor team.
As fast as Sabertooth himself.
Tags a wary Spider Man.
Able to keep up with Dracula himself.
Matches speeds with Morbius who is Spider man and Dracula level.
Able to tag Spider Woman with his speed consistently.
One of WBN best attributes is his insane high durability. This guy can tank a beating from blunt force attacks well outside his weight range.
This is Glitternight. He is a funny looking guy, but powerful sorcerer with light energy attacks. As seen in Scan 1, this attack can shatter into rubble 10+ tons worth of stone easy. Scans 2-3 show WBN walking through this blast till it is used at its best, and even then is not KOed. Scan 4 shows him tanking this all out to the skull with no issues. Scans 5-6 has WBN tanking it at full blast, and then falls 100s of feet head first. Only to get back into the fight.
Jack shrugging off blows from Dracula who never holds back.
WBN shrugs off a repulser blasts from Iron Man in different fights.
After shot with a silver arrow, WBN takes three blows from Wonder man to KO him.
Grey Hulk attempts to hit WBN hard enough to break its teeth. Not only did he failed, but WBN bounces right back unfazed.
Classic Savage Hulk attempts to end WBN from eating humans with a solid hit. To no effect.
One of the outstanding perks of the Werewolf Curse is the healing factor. Its damn hard to kill a werewolf.
Various healing feats vs bullets. Scan 1 being rifles, and scans 2-3 being large caliber handguns. Scan 4 being a straight head shot that WBN not only ignore, but heals in seconds.
WBn been stabbed many times before too, to no avail. Perfect example is when WBN was nearly cut in half by the Marvel Zombie being, only to heal up in a few panels fine.
One of the best examples of feats of the healing is this one. WBN is stabbed multiple times by Silver. The only major weakness that leaves wounds that does not heal like normal. Then the next night, with these injuries still WBN is clawed and bitten to bloody shreds by other werewolves. After all this, death was seemingly inevitable. Till Jack and the Wolf became one for the first time, instantly healing all the wounds.
WBN healing is so good, that it even cures Jack of the infamous Marvel Zombie Virus. Thats how damn good it is.
WBN healing allows him to even regen his head blown to pieces in a short time span. Truly immortal.
Claws and Fangs
The claws and fangs of WBN is pretty damn sharp, and a huge asset to WBN.
These claws are shown time and again to shred concrete and steel fine.
Shown to even cut into both Grey Hulk's and Savage Hulk's durability to a degree.
Like any good Werewolf, Jack has damn good senses. Stated in bio to see in In fared, and Ultraviolet lights, as well the keen hearing, smell, and taste of any wolf.
Uses these senses to track Morbius across San Francisco, and also tracked Spider Man across the same city easy.
Jack senses Moonknight trying to stealth him as soon the wind changes direction.
Stated that his senses are a million times greater. Even tasting the tang of the Adrenalin in the blood from a distance.
Another perk of the Werewolf Curse, if you can call it one, is the benefit of not having a soul. WBN is all intents immune to soul attacks and manipulation.
Immune to the soul stealing demons of Sattanish.
Immune to Shiklah's soul sucking kisses.
Immune to Ghost Riders soul searing Hell Fire attacks.
All done in Panel by Panel style to coincide CV scan rules.
