Thirty Days of Night | Comics

30 days of night comic
Thirty Days of Night | Comics
For thousands of years, humans believed that Vampires are only a scary mythical creature of darkness who sucks blood and they only exist in the books and fantasy novels. Since people refuses to believe that these very lethal and heinous creatures are for real, it gives the Vampires an advantage what they need to keep the continuation of their existence running. Because, years of absence of these creatures from human-sight may have faded their memory from men’s mind but they are feared and hated by the humans since the "Council of Elders" made their presence known to public ages ago. After struggling for over a millennium, only a few of them made it out to the present led by an elder named Vicente.

Marlowe, one of Vicente’s own kind has raided the city of Barrow, Alaska, during a 30 straight days of polar night to have a non-stop feeding fest with a few of his blood-thirsty followers that made its residents known about the secret presence of them which their race has been keeping under cover for quite some time. Vicente eventually arrives at Barrow upon calling, only to confront and take care of Marlowe later for what he mindlessly did by blowing their cover to the humans and then decides to continue what Marlowe began anyway, so that there is no witness left to tell their tale. Sheriff Eben Olemaun along with his wife Stella Olemaun and a handful of survivors made a last stand against the Nosferatu. The winter may have had weakened them but since the night is young, the creatures of darkness are still to do a lot more to the humans.

As she grew up she learnt ballet, chose the career of espionage and is then recruited by the K.G.B. to become their first operative known as Black Widow. Then she fought HYDRA, met Logan for a second time years later, dated Iron Man and then she met up with Hawkeye, who were unaware of her K.G.B. origins and was a criminal back then. He eventually joined The Avengers and Natasha remained an ally while working for S.H.I.E.L.D.

To go solo, she broke up with Hawkeye and start fighting crime in New York, where she found Daredevil and they dated for a while. She moved with the crowd of Ghost Rider, Hercules and the X-Men’s Angel and Iceman to form The Champions, which didn’t last long. She again partnered up with Daredevil to stop The Hand from getting their hands on the corpse of Elektra.

As a member of The Avengers, she led the team many times and slowly develops a crush on Captain America but ended up sleeping with Tony. Her role as the leader of the team finally came to an end during “Onslaught” event. Throughout the crisis of Civil War, Secret Invasion, Dark Reign and Siege, Natasha is proven to be pretty instrumental for her team.
