Vote Werewolf By Night

So, Marvel.com is running this poll for the next character to be featured in Amazing Fantasy, which is being relaunched as a character showcase book in March. The choices are Scorpion, The Cat, Kraven, and Werewolf by Night. The winner will get revamped in the all-new first issue. For mymoney, Werewolf by Night is the way to go. Here's why:

Scorpion and Kraven are established Spider-Man villains. True, Kraven's been dead for around 15 years, but one of his kids took over the name. In any case, I don't really see either property being successful if pulled outside that mythos.

As for The Cat, the character was never much more than a poor man's Catwoman. If this one wins, we'll probably get another cat-themed superhero, and who needs more of those?

Werewolf by Night, on the other hand, could be as nice chance for Marvel to branch out. The old series was a great moody horror piece, and there's no reason this one couldn't be the same, or even better. I've already tossed a few ideas around my head that would be pretty nifty.

So, vote Werewolf. The poll's on Marvel's front page, so you can't miss it. If you don't, I'll be sad.
