Bloodlust (Beatta Dubiel)

Beatta Dubiel was born in Wroclaw, Poland. She was a mutant with a bestial form, complete with fangs and claws. She was part of Critical Mass' Band of Baddies. The Baddies forced the mutant daughter to knock out Spider-Man and Wolverine, but they quickly recovered.

She was later joined in Femme Fatales, and she was hired by the Chameleon to threaten an ambassador. Spider-Man intervened and saved the ambassador, making an enemy with the Femme Fatales.

When he turns 16 he grew gigantic black leather wings and fled his home to live in the sewers with other mutant outcasts. At 19, his powers fully developed, his mind fully corrupted by evil, he began his life of crime.

He was created by writers Steven Grant (initial conception) and Frank Lovece (script and name), and penciler Ed Murr.
Bloodstorm is a genetically engineered clone of Dracula, created by the terrorist organization HYDRA's Department of Occult Armaments (DOA). He did not bear the same appearance as Marvel's portrayal of Dracula. Mentally subjugated by the one-time Lord of Vampires, Varnae, Bloodstorm was seemingly destroyed in the explosion that had appeared to kill Hannibal King and Frank Drake.
Other characters named Bloodstorm
Another character named Bloodstorm is an alternate version of the X-Men superheroine Storm from the series Mutant X.
Bloodwraith (Sean Dolan) is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by Mark Gruenwald, Dann Thomas, Roy Thomas and Tony DeZuniga, and first appeared in Black Knight #2 (July 1990).
Bloodwraith is the murderous enemy of Black Knight and the Avengers. While Sean Dolan was known as Bloodwraith, Bloodwraith is made up of the souls of those the Ebony Blade has slain. He is an expert swordsman compelled to take lives, especially innocent lives. The blade is indestructible and able to cut through almost any material. The blade was forged from a meteorite and Merlin's magic. The blade can trap dead souls and absorb or deflect all kinds of energies and mystical power. Bloodwraith can sense the ebony blade and control it like a telekinetic. If separated, Bloodwraith can teleport to the Ebony Blade or teleport the blade to himself. Bloodwraith rides a winged horse named Valinor.
Sean Dolan was an amateur swordsman with no special abilities. When Sean drew the ebony blade, he found himself overwhelmed and controlled by all the souls of those the sword had slain, and became the Bloodwraith. The Bloodwraith was dark black in color and appeared in costume. The sword constantly craved new blood to add, and those it slew found their souls locked in an eternal battle of good vs. evil in a dimension inside the sword. Bloodwraith rides his winged horse, Valinor, and is an expert swordsman. He can control the ebony blade rather like a telekinetic. When separated from the blade, he can sense its presence and instantaneously teleport to its location. The ebony blade could slice through anything and, previously, would curse its wielder with petrification if its wielder used the blade to draw blood. When he wielded Proctor's sword, the Bloodwraith and Valinor appeared much more skeletal and could channel powerful blasts through the sword. When powered by the Slorenian souls, Bloodwraith became composed of an energy unknown to man and grew to giant size.
Astrid Bloom is a fictional mutant in the Marvel Comics Universe. She was created by Karl Bollers & Carlo Pagulayan, and first appeared in Emma Frost #14.
Astrid Bloom was a college friend of Emma Frost and also a telepath. She began to school the then-inexperienced Emma in the more technical applications of her telepathic powers. Bloom claimed that after her father died, her mother remarried and favored Astrid's half-sister Yvonne over her, later sending her away after learning of her powers. Emma later found that Astrid's purported background history was a fraud: in truth, Astrid had mind-controlled Yvonne into killing their parents. She had also been subtly manipulating Emma in order turn her against both males and non-mutant humanity.
In a desperate effort to control Emma, while simultaneously framing Emma's male love-interest for the crime of assault; Bloom attempted to temporarily imprison Emma by trapping Frost's psi-image within her (Astrid's) own psyche, a technique she'd no doubt utilized on others prior. This however proved to be a disastrous strategy to use against another telepath, as it allowed Emma to instantly review and assimilate all that Astrid knew about telepathic utilization and combat. Now armed with the technical skill to back up her far superior power level; Emma freed herself, then confronted and psionically lashed out against an incredulous Astrid. The confrontation was short, with Bloom having never stood a chance.
Astrid was last seen in a comatose state, after losing her psi-battle against Frost. It is unknown how long she remained in that state, and whether she retained or lost her mutant abilities after the M-Day.
Bloom's legacy however, was to leave a lasting impression upon Emma that baseline humans (and even non-telepathic mutants) were little more than "soulless meat puppets", who existed for the sole purpose of the amusement of those capable of controlling them. The Emma Frost comic series ends with an ambulance carrying the comatose Astrid into the distance; with Emma staring on, while casually listening to the background thoughts of others in attendance, and thinking that Astrid was right about all non-telepaths after all.
Had the series continued, it was this event that would have eventually set in motion the events that would see Emma rise to power as both the head of Frost Industries, and as White Queen of the Hellfire club.
Astrid Bloom is a mutant with various telepathic abilities. She can read minds and project her thoughts into the minds of others.

Johann Goldstein was a Polish Jew who studied science in the 1930s, with his older brother Jacob. When the German army invaded Poland in 1939 and began to persecute the Jews, Johann fled to the USA while his brother remained in Poland. He changed his name to Professor Jonathan Gold and began working on a secret project. He designed a suit of steel armor that was capable of flight. When the Nazis learned of his project in 1943, they captured his brother Jacob and ordered John to betray the USA and kill the superhuman Invaders in exchange for Jacob’s life.
As the Blue Bullet, John fought the Invaders but was defeated. When John told them what happened, they journeyed to Warsaw to free Jacob.

Lawrence "Larry" Bodine is a fictional mutant in the Marvel Comics Universe. His first appearance was in New Mutants #45.
While a dance was held at his school, Salem Center High, Larry Bodine stood outside, too nervous to enter. Looking up, he saw Danielle Moonstar, who had been at the dance with the rest of the New Mutants, fly into the air on her winged horse. Larry instantly created a light sculpture of her, but when he heard voices, immediately destroyed it. Ms. Hogarth, Larry's principle, introduced him to Michael Xavier (actually Magneto who was acting as the headmaster of Xavier's School at the time). Ms. Hogarth encouraged Larry to go inside and try to make some friends, and suggested he dance with Kitty Pryde, who just wanted to go home. Despite that, Kitty latched onto Larry, and he offered to get her some punch.
At the punch bowl, he overheard some of the other kids from his school making fun of mutants, and when they claimed he was ugly enough to be one, Larry firmly denied it. As he returned to Kitty, his schoolmates decided to play a prank, leaving a note claiming they had called X-Factor on him. Larry had no time to react to the note, as Kitty asked him to head to Harry's Hideaway with her and the rest of the New Mutants. Kitty and Larry continued to dance at the Hideaway, but Larry was a ball of nerves, worrying that maybe Kitty and her friends hated mutants, like the kids at his school. Trying to break the ice, Larry told some anti-mutant jokes, which just managed to anger Kitty and her friends, who ditched him.
Back at his house, Larry continued to freak out, worrying about X-Factor. He began to call his parents, who were on vacation, but hung up before the call was placed. Finding no solace in alcohol, Larry went up to his room, where he considered calling Kitty and apologizing. But before he could talk himself out of it, the phone rang, and the voice on the other line told him that X-Factor were coming for him. Too scared to face what they might do to him, Larry committed suicide, hanging himself.
Larry Bodine was a mutant with the ability to manipulate light, and even build sculptures out of it.
