A fan site for the Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Game by Margaret Weis Productions
Happy Chanukah from all of us at Plot Points! As we continue Monster Week, we come upon another “hero” from the heyday of Marvel Horror in the Seventies: Jack Russell, the Werewolf! After about three dozen issues of his original comic, Jack gained some control over his lycanthropic curse, which finally allowed the character to break out of the “emo” mold and have a little fun. (P.S. Don Perlin was one of comics’ most-underrated artists. His long run on Werewolf By Night was superb.)
And it’s this in-control/Legion of Monsters Werewolf that I’ve statted up here. His milestones reflect his family’s cursed connection to the Darkhold (Marvel’s version of the Necronomicon) and his wolfish flirtations with women like Elsa Bloodstone (found in the official Civil War: 50 State Initiative supplement).
