Michael Morbius (most often just named Morbius) is an antihero (and sometimes villain) who is a living vampire in the Marvel Universe.


A brilliant biologist, Michael Morbius experimented with blood, but when one experiment went out of control, he was transformed into a vampire like being who needed to feast on the blood of the living.


Though not much is known of his childhood (save that he a Greek immigrant), it is known that Dr. Michael Morbius was a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist researching and working on cures for various blood diseases.  He himself suffered from an unnamed debilitating blood disease and had been working on an experimental new treatment that involved electro-shock and vampire bats.
