First Appearance: Bloodstone#1 (December, 2001)
Powers/Abilities: Wearing the Bloodstone Choker (containing a fragment of the Bloodgem (see comments)), Elsa gains superhuman physical abilities, including enhanced strength, speed, agility, endurance to an unspecified level. Presumably she possesses superhuman regenerative powers like her father, but it is not certain that she actually has the same gem as he did. She has demonstrated immunity to vampire bites: Actually, her blood was pure enough to destroy a vampire that consumed it; the Bloodgem fragment itself was an anathema to vampires. While the Choker does attach itself to her, she can apparently remove it at will.
Over time the effects of the gem rendered her resistant to physical harm.
She possesses a number of artifacts gathered by her father. She possessed a Lamp which contained a Genie Ulysses had enslaved years ago, which served as his early warning system, lighting up during supernatural encounters or other trouble, and transporting him to said encounters if he so wished. She was equipped with a series of weapons designed for use against vampires, including a shotgun firing silver cross buckshot, an ultraviolet flashlight, etc. Other weaponry she used included two Uzis, two shotguns, a handgun (most with special ammo), shovels and everything that could be used as a weapon.
Additional artifacts and weapons Bloodstone has used include Mordred's Causeway (allowing planetary transportation through portals), the atomic power hammer of Pildorr the Plunderer, a Behemoth-Buster shotgun, and Bloodbeast bullets (which teleport away those shot by them). Elsa was briefly transformed by Alice Michaels into a green bug monster with giant eyes and pincer hands, but she recovered.
Weight: 120 lbs.
(Bloodstone#1 (fb) - BTS) - Approximately 18 years ago, Bloodstone met and married a woman named Elise, who adopted his last name. Eventually Elise gave birth to his daughter, Elsa.
(Marvel Assistant-Sized Spectacular#2/3) - Not long after Elsa was born Ulysses walked around with her in Elsa's room and talked to her.
(Nextwave#8 (fb)) - One day Ulysses tossed Elsa with a spoon into a pit with the Blight Beast of Krakow when she was still a baby. After she had killed the Blight Beast he wanted her to circumcise the Hideous Felch-Monster of Bihar Province.
(Monsters Unleashed III#6 (fb) – BTS) – As a toddler, Elsa was taught to kill Gibborim marauders.
(Bloodstone#1 (fb) - BTS) - Ulysses and Elise separated when Elsa was two
years old. Ulysses distanced himself from both,
and Elsa never knew him as she grew up (see comments). Bloodstone trusted Adam (the Frankenstein monster to
give his daughter Elsa a fragment of the Bloodgem in a choker (the
Bloodstone Choker, of course), when she was old
(Bloodstone#1 (fb) - BTS) - After Ulysses left, Elise and Elsa
traveled across Europe. Eventually they settled in England, where Elsa
(Marvel Heartbreakers#1/2 (fb)) - Ulysses tossed Elsa into the sea in South Africa to fight great white sharks to strip her of her weakness and fill her with courage when she had her first period.
(Nextwave#8 (fb)) - When her parents were away Ulysses' robot Hate Mother taught teenage aged Elsa about monsters. When Elsa gave a wrong answer she was tortured by Hate Mother.
(Monsters Unleashed III#1 (fb) – BTS) – Elsa was 17 the first time she rode on the back of a dragon.
(Marvel Heartbreakers#1/2 (fb)) - At prom night Living Mummy (N'Kantu) almost became Elsa's first boyfriend. She liked how mysterious he was, but when he never asked for a dance it was over before anything had ever begun.
(Bloodstone#1 (fb) - BTS) - Elsa began to have increasingly frequent dreams about monsters, such as vampires.
(Bloodstone#1 (fb) - BTS) - Eventually they learned of Ulysses' death, and they flew to Boston to settle his estate.
(Bloodstone#1) - Elsa and Elise arrived at Bloodstone House, where they were given a tour by the executor of Ulysses' estate, Charles Barnabas. Exploring the house, Elsa discovered a secret chamber, in which she encountered Adam, the Frankenstein Monster, who told her about her father. Adam gave her the Bloodstone Choker, which attached itself to her neck. She then grabbed a flashing lamp, and when she wished she knew why it was flashing, she was transported to Bosnia, into the midst of a struggle between Dracula and the Nosferatu vampires.
(Bloodstone#2) - Dracula recognized the Bloodgem fragment and attacked Elsa, but was blasted away by the Bloodstone Choker. Dracula was then impaled by the Nosferatu, who took him away, while Adam managed to return Elsa to Bloodstone House. Adam later designed a costume for Elsa, patterned after her father's. The two then had the lamp transport them to another site of trouble: Egypt, where they encountered the soldiers of Fazil and then the Living Mummy.
(Bloodstone#3) - The Mummy revealed the plot of Rakses and guided Elsa to help take the Orb of Ra from him, with the eventual aid of Adam. Upon returning to Bloodstone House, they were confronted by Tomas, and they convinced him to keep their secret. Later, Elsa's glowing Choker revealed itself to Barnabus, after which the Nosferati vampires appeared and abducted Barnabus. Elsa ran to get help from Adam, but found that he was decapitated...though otherwise ok. She, Tomas, and Adam then prepared to rescue Barnabus.
(Bloodstone#4) - The lamp transported the trio to the Dearborn for Hemoralgic Disease Control, Emson Bend, Wyoming, where they found Nosferatu and the Nosferati vampires plotting to infect Dracula, Barnabus, and a few other "pure" blood vampires with a synthesized Ebola virus that caused the body to become saturated with blood, so that they would have eternal sources of nourishment. Elsa and her allies attacked, and her vampire weapons made short work of many of the Nosferati. Else confronted Nosferatu himself, who bit her and drank her blood, but was then destroyed by the Bloodgem energy in her blood. She and her allies freed Barnabus and Dracula, and Dracula then exposed the Nosferati to sunlight, destroying them. Returning to Bloodstone House, Elsa convinced Barnabus to keep her secret as well.
Elsa began attending college,
presumably alongside Tomas Dluga, and she, Tomas, and Adam continued to
follow trouble around the world via the lamp. They were last seen
heading out to confront the Kraken.
(Marvel Monsters: From the Files of Ulysses
Bloodstone and the Monster Hunters#1 (fb)-BTS) - At some point, Elsa
fought Zarko the Flying Squid.
(Marvel Monsters: From the Files of Ulysses
Bloodstone and the Monster Hunters#1) - Elsa used her father's journal
as the starting point of a database she began to build on various
monsters. She was contacted by Frank Johnson and Jacob Hathaway,
who were both more than willing to help her in her project.
(Nextwave#1 (fb) - BTS) - Elsa joined H.A.T.E. and became part of the Nextwave Squad.
(World War Hulks: Captain America vs. Wolverine#1/2 (fb) ) - As members of the Nextwave Squad Elsa, Monica and Tabitha fought a city of werewolves alongside Robert Hellsgaard.
(Nextwave#1 (fb) - BTS) - Elsa left H.A.T.E. with the Nextwave Squad when they found out that H.A.T.E. was funded by the Beyond Corporation. They also stole a Shockwave Rider (they needed a vehicle to get around) and the Beyond Corporation's marketing plan to stop their running operations.
(Nextwave#1) - Elsa drank some tea with the Captain at a Coffee Shop in Abcess, North Dakota and waited there until the Beyond Corporation's work nearby caused a reaction. Elsa and the Captain were shocked when a Fin Fang Foom clone rose from Beyond's building site. They were ready to go to work, but were stopped by a jeep full of Human Resources operatives. Elsa, who crashed into a shop for music instruments, took a guitar to smash the operatives. The last one tried to escape in the jeep, but Elsa destroyed the jeep with the guitar and than stabbed the agent through the chest (Guitar Hero: Elsa Bloodstone). When she saw that the agent wore a Beyond badge she informed Aaron Stack (aka X-51; Machine Man) that the Beyond Corporation knew that they were in the city. Elsa went to her guitar case, which she had lost when she was hit by the jeep, and took out her guns. After shooting more agents, she informed Monica that these agents were not human (fear the green).
(Nextwave#2) - Elsa was on her way to fight the Fin Fang Foom clone, but couldn't get through a crowd of innocent bystanders. She cried for some help from Monica, who flew her up to a building. There Nextwave discussed their plan to take out the Fin Fang Foom clone. Monica ordered Elsa to make Foom open his mouth for Aaron. Elsa thought for a second, then jumped from the building and shot Foom in both of eyes. The dragon opened his mouth, and Aaron jumped inside while Elsa landed on a car (Elsa was fine, but the car was damaged beyond repair). Elsa and the others killed more Human Resources operatives until Foom-clone puked out his own heart (Aaron did a good job inside Foom). The monster was down, the situation cleared, and the Nextwave Squad left the city inside the stolen Shockwave Rider.
(Nextwave#3) - On Monday, the Nextwave Squad was after a guy in Sink City, Illinois who was infected by a Beyond-invented organism that fed on metal. Tabitha lost him because she was attacked by Human Resources operatives, and Elsa was now searching for him in a jeep she started inside the Shockwave Rider (the thing seemingly dropped a few hundred feet from the sky, but it was a very special jeep that wasn't damaged that easily). Elsa had road rage because everybody drove on the wrong side (she grew up in England). She found the infected guy, an officer named Mac Mangel, near a school and let her jeep crash into him, while she jumped out to go after some attacking Human Resources operatives on motorbikes. Before they became her number one priority, she blew up her jeep by shooting its gas tank, and Mangel was history. Then she attacked...oh...Mangel survived, and the Human Resources operatives laughed. (I'm as surprised as Elsa was.).
(Nextwave#4) - Mangel, who slowly turned into a second-rate Transformer, prepared to squash Monster Hunter Elsa Bloodstone. The Captain saved her and tossed Mangel to a scrapyard, where he could eat more metal to become bigger, stronger and a far worse problem. Nearby the school, Elsa used a modified flare round against the Human Resources operatives and they went up in flames (I hate the smell of cooked broccoli). Elsa then got really mad at Captain because he left Mangel at the scrapyard. Seconds later they saw that Captain's actions really made everything worse as the giant robotic Mangel rose from the scrapeyard to wreak havoc on the city. Tabitha soon ended the threat, and Elsa couldn't care less when she saw how Tabitha and Aaron beat up Mangel afterwards (Monica did care and stopped them. She then released Mangel into the care of his "friends", who killed the corrupt cop.). Aaron brought Elsa and Tabitha back into the Shockwave Rider, and the team left the city.
(Nextwave#5) - Nextwave was on their way to Beyond's War Garden 6. When they realized that it was the place the Human Resources operatives were grown they were ready to blow it up. On the ground, Elsa was the first to take action and began to destroy one of the not yet fully grown broccoli murder-dudes (Tabitha called them that) with a shovel. Dirk Anger, their former boss and commander of H.A.T.E., already knew that the Nextwave Squad were there and soon arrived to start an attack with the Aeromarine's Armageddon Horn. Nextwave survived, so Anger released the Drop Bears (evil koala bears). Elsa shot some koalas with her Uzis and was shocked at her own actions. The next attack wave was Samurai Batch 23. Elsa didn't think her Uzis would help against them, but she still had her shovel and Tabitha Smith at her side, and they were ready to take the robots out.
(Nextwave#6) - Elsa (with shovel) and Tabby (with her boom) destroyed all the robots. Meanwhile Aaron found a way to force Dirk Anger and his troops to leave (he threatened to burn the clothes of Anger's mother. Dirk had serious problems!). Elsa pointed out that the Shockwave Rider was seriously damaged, but Aaron told them that he would get it running again. Elsa asked Aaron to take off the bra he had stolen from Anger, but he didn't want to and was then beaten up with shovels by Elsa, Monica and Tabby.
(Nextwave#7) - In a badly repaired Shockwave Rider, the Nextwave Squad was on their way to Shotcreek, Colorado. Elsa and Monica discussed what "magic deal" in Beyond's marketing plan could mean and they also talked about a few other things. When they arrived in Shotcreek, the city was already overrun by Mindless Ones. Elsa and the others helped the local police against the monsters, and Elsa was really happy when she saw that the Mindless Ones exploded. When the fight was over, they were told that they had only defeated the leading edge of Mindless Ones and that the north side of town was full of them. Elsa and the rest prepared to go after more Mindless Ones.
(Nextwave#8) - After having killed more Mindless Ones, Elsa told the rest of the team who these monsters were, were they had come from and how to stop the arrival of more by destroying the gate they were coming through (by messing up the magic circle that held the gate open). The team scattered to search for the gate and kill more Mindless Ones. Elsa found about a dozen in a restaurant and called the others, but then she decided to kill them by herself. With her gun, forks and knives, the show was soon over for the Mindless Ones. Captain found the gate and not only destroyed it, but also the Mindless Ones' master Rorkannu. Elsa and the rest of team arrived to see the mess the Captain made out of Rorkannu. Afterwards Nextwave returned to the Shockwave Rider and departed.
(Nextwave#9) - The marketing plan led Nextwave to an empty city. They were all surprised, especially Elsa (sporting a T-Shirt with the flag of the European Union), who suspected devil dinosaurs eating the population. When the Nextwave realized that it could be a trap, they decided to leave, but it was too late. Beyond's core cell S.I.L.E.N.T. were already above them in their upside down flying fortress, and Number None told them that they were on a flying city that was built as a trap to anyone who dared to interfere with Beyond's plans. Number None then introduced Nextwave to the agents that would destroy Nextwave: The three teams Surgery, Vestry and the New Paramounts. Elsa and Tabby attacked the New Paramounts, and Elsa wasn't going to lay down for Charlie America after she was knocked off her feet by him. One exploding bullet later, Charlie America was down, and Elsa was angry.
(Nextwave#10) - Beyond's Forbush Man used his powers to trap Elsa and the other Nextwave members in illusions of horrific alternate lives. In Elsa's alternate life Earth had been run over by monsters. Only a few hundred people were left, and she was the only one still capable of fighting against the monsters. The illusion was over when Tabby, who wasn't affected by Forbush Man's powers (because she is a stupid blonde and has no mind), blew him up. Elsa and the others were free again, but S.I.L.E.N.T. fled before they could be stopped by Nextwave, who decided to follow them from wherever they came from.
(Nextwave#11) - With the damaged Shockwave Rider, the Nextwave flew to State 51, the base of Beyond. When they arrived at the floating state, the team was in awe. They were shot down by Anger's Aeromarine and crash-landed on State 51. They hardly survived and then attacked everything Beyond threw at them on their way through State 51 (see comments). After the last wave they met Number None, who impaled Aaron with a lance.
(Nextwave#12) - Elsa and the others were shocked for a second, but Aaron wasn't dead because he was a robot, and he took out Number None. Inside Number None's chest, the Nextwave found a baby MODOK, who fled by teleporting away. With Aaron's help they found baby MODOK again in a giant metal globe. On their way there, Elsa was carried by the Captain. Tabby shot a hole into the globe, and they witnessed how baby MODOK was shot by the boss of the Beyond Corporation: Devil Dinosaur. Nextwave listened to Devil Dinosaur's moaning about how Moon Boy hated him, how he now hated all monkeys and that he had eaten Moon Boy. Then they attacked. First was Monica, then Elsa blew up the dinosaur's giant handgun, and then Tabby surrounded him with fire. Aaron and Captain pushed the globe off State 51 after all their allies were out, and Devil Dinosaur dropped around two miles down and rolled down a mountain. Tabby blew up the metal globe, and the Nextwave thought about what they could do with the invisible State 51 base.
(Marvel Heartbreakers#1/2 (fb) ) - Elsa dated Werewolf (Jack Russell) for a while. He was always fun drunk, but they were both synched to the lunar cycles and unfortunately not the same way. Werewolf was always in heat when Elsa just wasn't into it, so they split up.
(Marvel Assistant-Sized Spectacular#2/3 (fb) - BTS) - Elsa tracked down the Children of Goram to Prague. One of the children bit her inside a local hospital, which impregnated Elsa with its offspring.
(Marvel Assistant-Sized Spectacular#2/3) - Lying on the floor Elsa thought about how the Goram was eating her from the inside. The Bloodstone Choker's regenerative powers killed the Goram within Elsa's body, and she puked it up. Afterwards, she killed all the Children of Goram within the hospital, impressing the locals. After everything was over Elsa thought to herself that she was born to hunt monsters, but that -- unlike her father -- she would be the last of her line because she never wanted to have children.
(Marvel Heartbreakers#1/2 (fb) - BTS) - Elsa had been dating Franken's Teen for some time. At some point Franken's Teen replaced his left arm with an ape's arm. After they split up, Franken's Teen put compromising pictures of Elsa on the internet.
(Marvel Heartbreakers#1/2) - Tabitha Smith and Elsa Bloodstone talked about ex-boyfriends while waiting for Franken's Teen, whom they wanted to lure to them with beer placed in a bear trap. Franken's Teen walked right into the trap, and Elsa confronted him about the pictures of her he put on the internet. Elsa had then Tabby blow up Franken's Teen for her. Elsa shockingly told Franken's Teen to just pull himself together before the dogs arrived.
(Girl Comics#2/4) - Elsa made herself a sandwich, but dropped it on the ground when Tabitha snuck up on her. Tabby asked Elsa if she had ever thought about using her powers for evil, and Elsa admitted ruling the world at some point did cross her mind.
(Franken-Castle#21) - Elsa went to Monster Metropolis to confront Morbius, Werewolf, Manphibian and Living Mummy about giving the Punisher the Bloodstone to heal up because it granted the owner power equivalent to its owners' desire for revenge. She asked them to help her fix the situation.
Man-Thing teleported Elsa, Manphibian, Living Mummy, Morbius and Werewolf to Monster Island, where the Punisher was healing up and hunting monsters. They tried to talk the Punisher into handing over the Bloodstone on his own, but he attacked them and was shot through the chest by Elsa. He fought off Elsa and used the Man-Thing's hand to burn her. Werewolf extinguished the burning Elsa in a nearby pond. A speech from Living Mummy then convinced the Punisher to hand over the Bloodstone to Elsa. The Punisher just ripped it out of his chest and tossed it over to her. The Punisher was done with aiding Monster Metropolis.
(Legion of Monsters
II#1) - When a monster murdered several people in Chipperfield,
Hertfordshire, England, Elsa went there to lure the monster into a trap.
Playing loud music and training in front of a window in a brightly lit
room was enough to lure the monster to her. It attacked, and Elsa shot
it a few times. The monster fled and Elsa followed it to a portal that
led to Monster Metropolis beneath Manhattan in the US. Arriving there
on her motorbike, Elsa slew the monster and was confronted by Werewolf
and Living Mummy, who weren't happy that the monser hunter Elsa was
murdering a monster inside Monster Metropolis. They had Elsa arrested
for the murder.
Over the next hours, more and more monsters lost control and had to be caught by the monster authorities Living Mummy, Werewolf and Manphibian. After examining the slain monster, Morbius realized that it had been infected by a mystic virus that turned monsters into mindless killing machines, and he released Elsa because the monster had been killing people and Elsa had to take it down. Morbius revealed to Elsa that he had seen something like this before and asked Elsa to help them hunt down the infected monsters. She had to start with Monster Metropolis' Kindergarten teacher.
(Legion of Monsters II#2) - Elsa helped Living Mummy, Werewolf and Manphibian catch several infected monsters. When the Dimensional Man, who was stuck in the Monster Metropolis' pipes, commented on looking down Elsa's blouse , she shot the pipes. Morbius then Elsa to go through a list of contacts in the occult community to find out what they were exatly dealing with, reminding Elsa that he had seen something like this before. Elsa and Werewolf met with Satannish and Helleyes in a portion of Hell, and Elsa witlessly sold her soul to Satannish for the information about the Angel Grove massacre from 1973, which was only survived by Dracula and Morbius. Demons attacked her to rip her soul out of her, but Werewolf saved her. Werewolf and Elsa escaped Hell when Elsa tossed a grenade at the demons, but Jack got seriously injured in the portal's explosion.
(Legion of Monsters II#3) - Elsa returned Jack, who wasn't healing because he had turned back to human form after his fight with the demons, to Monster Metropolis. Morbius took care of him until Elsa confronted Morbius about the Angel Grove massacre. After the story of the massacre didn't bring her the answers she wanted Elsa left Monster Metropolis to seek the answers somewhere else. She armed herself and went the Castle Dracula, asking the Lord of Vampires for answers. Morbius joined them, and Dracula revealed that the woman who was allegedly trying to help Morbius back then was actually a witch known as Bruxal and the creator of the virus. On their way back to Monster Metropolis, Morbius realized that he had infected the first monster with the virus, which had been dormant in his body since the Angel Grove massacre, as well as the other monsters when he contaminated Monster Metropolis' water by washing his bleeding arm.
(Legion of Monsters
II#4) - Morbius revealed his assumption of being responsible for the
epidemic to Elsa when they returned to Monster Metropolis. Elsa caught
Manphibian, who had been infected as well at this point, and
Jack woke up, and Elsa was glad he was alive, but
Morbius then told them that he was going to blow up the Monster Metropolis, and
Elsa and Jack needed to leave. When Jack transformed into Werewolf
again, he immediately went crazy, and Elsa and Morbius had to fight
him off. Elsa then had the idea to release the Dimensional Man from the
pipes so he could suck the virus out of the monsters, starting with
Manphibian and Werewolf.
Elsa unfortunately hadn't thought her plan through and Dimensional Man, controlled by the virus he absorbed, grew out of proportions the more monsters he healed. Though Morbius suggested to kill him, Elsa, Werewolf and Manphibian worked together to blow Dimensional Man into smaller pieces to catch him again. When Morbius realized that he could control the virus, which was responding to his subconscious fears all along, he used this ability to stop the virus-controlled Dimensional Man.
<3 weeks later> Elsa was still at Monster Metropolis helping Werewolf and the others to clean up the city. When Werewolf told Elsa about a 90-foot blood serpent killing Australian surfers, Elsa said her goodbyes to Morbius and Manphibian and let Jack show her out of the city. He asked her to give him a ring sometime.
(Wolverine II#314) - Wolverine encountered Elsa on the Isla de la Sombra off the coast of Morocco in the cave where the Dreaming Maiden had been kept. The Maiden's crystalized body had been stolen by the Covenant's Murderous Lion, who had left behind his disciples the Twelve Horrors to kill anyone else who sought the Dreaming Maiden. Wolverine and Elsa defeated them, but when Wolverine revealed afterward that he was going to save the Dreaming Maiden, Elsa shot him in the face because she wanted to finish her father Ulysses' work by killing the Dreaming Maiden.
(Wolverine II#315 (fb) - BTS) - Elsa traveled to the Valley of Gates and was defeated by Murderous Lion.
(Wolverine II#315) - Wolverine took down Murderous Lion and carried the barely conscious Elsa through a portal to find the body of the Dreaming Maiden. They fought through hordes of Murderous Lion's disciples to get to the Dreaming Maiden. Elsa was going to shoot her to pieces when robots created by Covenant member Chambers attacked them. Wolverine was knocked out by an explosion and Elsa by several energy blasts.
(Wolverine II#316) - Elsa and Wolverine woke up in a cell on Chambers' floating fortress. Wolverine's ex-girlfriend Seraph's Angels freed them after going through more of Chambers' robots. Elsa and Seraph's Angels fled the fortress while Wolverine continued fighting the robots. He eventually rejoined the women.
(Wolverine II#317) - Wolverine led Elsa and Seraph's Angels to the Gray Island Swampland in Louisiana where they found the Dreaming Maiden again in an old abandoned ship. They fought mutates and robots under the leadership of Covenant members Chambers and Crowley. After being shot by Covenant member Menace, Wolverine got trapped in the dream of the Dreaming Maiden and decapitated her in reality to the shock of Elsa and Seraph's Angels.
Soon after, Elsa joined the Covenant, taking her deceased father's spot, at a meeting in the Alps.
(Wolverine and the X-Men I#23 - BTS) - Elsa and the Legion of Monsters were contacted by Wolverine, who acted as headmaster of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. He explained Frankenstein's monster was active again, working alongside the witch Calcabrina in their so-called Murder Circus.
(Avengers Arena#14 (fb) ) - Elsa returned home to Bloodstone Manor to wash her clothes and get some traps when she encountered her brother Cullen, whom she had believed to be at boarding school for years. Cullen attacked her, possessed by a Glartrox, and Elsa brought him down. Bloodstone Manor was completely destroyed by their fight. Elsa gave Cullen a Bloodstone ring to keep the Glartrox in him under control. After the fight Elsa brought Cullen to the Braddock Academy.
(Avengers Arena#14 (fb) - BTS) - Cullen pulled off the ring shortly after they arrived at Braddock Academy, and he transformed into his Glartrox form.
(Avengers Arena#5 (fb) ) - Elsa fought Cullen, transformed into his Glartrox beast form, alongside Meggan, Spitfire and Captain Britain at the Braddock Academy to get him back to human form under control again.
(Fearless Defenders#8 (fb) - BTS) - Elsa was visiting an ex-boyfriend (presumably Werewolf).
(Fearless Defenders#8) - When rumblings of a monster threat caught the attention of the Defenders, Annabelle Riggs contacted Elsa, who was right on the top of the list of people who knew how to deal with monsters.

After the false Strange and the fairies had been defeated, Elektra returned the Bloodstone choker to Elsa. Pandora Peters of WAND, a sub-division of SHIELD, then appeared to bring the real Dr. Strange back to Earth and remove the memories of the battle from Elsa and the other participants.
(Avengers Undercover#4) - Elsa visited Cullen at a SHIELD Containment Facility after he and his friends had been caught by SHIELD after allegedly murdering Arcade (it was actually an Arcade replica and all part of Helmut Zemo's plan to turn Cullen and his friends into members of the Masters of Evil)

(A-Force II#8 (fb) – BTS) – Hearing about alien insects in Colorado, Elsa went on holiday to hunt them down, but she found them infecting civilians and changing them into more alien insects. Elsa helped the civilians, including Janine and Albert Michaels, and their daughter Anna, find shelter and kept them protected. They realized that humans who are about to transform had infection in their eyes first, and they closely monitored each other. Janine told Elsa that her other daughter, Alice, had gone missing one week before.
(A-Force II#8) – Nico Minoru arrived to see Elsa battling the insects, seeking to stop them without using lethal force (firing blasts from her Bloodstone hand), and they teamed up, jokingly discussing starting a club for "badass chicks" who had lost appendages due to jerks. Elsa got Nico back to Janine and the others. Soon, Captain Marvel and Medusa arrived, looking for Nico.
(A-Force II#9) – Bloodstone made a
sandwich as the other members of A-Force, Dazzler and Singularity,
arrived, seeking to contain Nico as they had heard a prophecy from the
Inhuman Ulysses that Nico would kill Alice. Annoyed, Bloodstone tossed
her sandwich aside and drew her gun, but Singularity stopped them all
from fighting, reminding them they were allies. They found the bugs
hold up in a cave on a cliff top, even as Janine and the others were
transformed into more bugs. Elsa herself was then transformed, and she
attacked her former allies. (A-Force II#10) – Nico blasted Elsa aside, and
Medusa helped restrain her, after which Nico cast a spell that transformed
Alice back to her human form, but didn’t change the others. Given no
choice, Nico cast another spell that seemingly killed Alice, and then Elsa
and the others were restored to their human forms. After Nico cast
another spell to restore the clothes of the others, Elsa and A-Force
saw Alice regenerate into a mutated human/insect woman and depart. Elsa
visited the local hot springs before saying goodbye to Nico. (Jessica Jones: Blind Spot I#3 (fb) – BTS) – A young

world. (Monsters Unleashed II#3 (fb) – BTS) – Dr. Strange
tried mentally summoning Elsa about the pending Leviathon Horde, but
she ignored him. (Monsters Unleashed II#1) – After finishing her
research in Boston, Elsa transported herself to Peru, where she
bypassed traps before finding cave drawings referring to a savior (Kid
Kaiju) who could save the Earth. (Monsters Unleashed II#2 (fb) – BTS) – As the
Leviathon Horde began attacking dozens of places on Earth, Elsa began
to track monster sightings related to the event from previous months,
in Boston, Peru, Hawaii, Montana, and Chicago, and she narrowed the
names on her list of who the savior could be to Kei Kawade, a new
Inhuman child who could summon monsters by drawing them; she eliminated
other names from her list, including Dracula, Werewolf by Night, Ghost
Rider (Johnny Blaze), Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch), Morbius, Mania (Andrea
Benton), and Man-Thing (Ted Sallis). (Monsters Unleashed II#2) – Bloodstone showed up at the home of Kei Kawade to recruit him. (Monsters Unleashed II#3 (fb) – BTS) – Elsa worked

(Monsters Unleashed II#3 (fb) – BTS) – Elsa worked with Kei, who used his powers to summon a bunch of monsters to help fight off the Leviathon Horde. She had Kei wait at Parker Industries in New York, and she taught him some curse words for good measure.(Monsters Unleashed II#3) – After the Leviathon Horde was defeated in San Diego, and Kei had sent his monsters back to their homes, Elsa approached the heroes present, including Dr. Strange, Captain America (Sam Wilson), Old Man Logan, Hercules, Storm, Star-Lord, Medusa, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, and Drax the Destroyer, and she took them to Parker Industries to meet Kei. Spider-Man brought in Kei’s parents, Deanna and Minouru Kawade, and he demonstrated his powers by summoning Devil Dinosaur and Moon Girl. Guided by Karnak, they discussed the origins and limits of Kei’s powers, as well as the Inhuman legends that had predicted the Leviathon Tide.
(Monsters Unleashed II#4) – Elsa guided Kei in sending monsters to aid heroes around the world to counter the Leviathan Tide. Elsa guarded the Kawade family with Ren Kimura, Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Inferno, Iso, and Wolverine, and she gladly killed as many Leviathons as she could with her shotgun when they attacked. Soon, the got word that the Leviathon Mother had landed on Earth.
(Monsters Unleashed II#5) – At Parker Industries, Elsa killed another Leviathon before they realized that all of Kei’s monsters and Earth’s heroes seemed to be defeated at the hands of the Leviathon Mother. Elsa helped Kei realize he could create original monsters to battle, and he generated Fireclaw, Slizzik, Hi-Vo, Aegis, Mekara, and Scragg. The Leviathon Mother killed Fireclaw before Kei changed the others into the massive combined monster, Smasher, and Smasher killed the Mother while the Leviathons fled in fear. Elsa watched as the Kawades and Kei’s new monsters were given a place to live on Mu, and she promised to help train Kei.
(Monsters Unleashed III#1) – In Romania, Bloodstone executed a group of vampires. Elsa returned to Mu to check on Kei and his monsters, and then H.E.R.B.I.E. informed them that Leviathons were attacking Corpus Christi, Texas. Elsa took herself and Kei through Mordred’s Causeway, after which he summoned his monsters to attack the Leviathons. Mole Man revealed himself as the one behind the monsters.
(Monsters Unleashed III#2) – During the battle, Elsa and Kei were kidnapped by the Mole Man and taken back to Subterranea. Elsa drew a gun on Mole Man, but the Moloids pulled her away deeper into the darkness instead.
(Monsters Unleashed III#3) – Elsa battled the Moloids, declaring herself their queen. She soon found the Mole Man and Kei being attacked by Lady Hellbender, and Elsa, flanked by the Moloids, attacked. Elsa shot Lady Hellbender, beat her with her gun, and gouged her eyes, while Elsa herself was slammed hard into a wall, but the fight ended when Lady Hellbender grabbed Kei and teleported away with him.
(Monsters Unleashed III#4) – The Moloids brought Elsa Mordred’s Causeway, which she’d dropped during the fight, and she got Mole Man to confess that the Intelligentsia had kidnapped Kei. She opened a portal to the villains and immediately attacked Lady Hellbender again, who soon tossed Elsa into a mechanical unit that inadvertently released Kei’s five monsters, who had been shrunken down by S.H.I.E.L.D. before being captured. Kei summoned Pildorr the Plunderer, who loaned Elsa his atomic power hammer, and Elsa then defeated Lady Hellbender. After reluctantly returning the hammer to Pildorr, Elsa used the Causeway to take herself and Mole Man back to Mu, where Kei had combined his monsters into Smasher to fight attacking Leviathons, but then the Leviathons combined into a super monster of their own.
(Monsters Unleashed III#5) – When the super monster fired off a series of deadly insects to attack Gloria Clark and the Kawades, Elsa worked with Mole Man to hold the beasts back.
(Monsters Unleashed III#6) – Hearing news of a nuclear reactor exploding, Elsa rushed to get Kei and his monsters and transported Kei to Japan, where Hi-Vo helped absorb the radiation as the other monsters rescued civilians. Elsa confessed to Kei that the potential of his powers terrified her. Kei asked to speak to Elsa in private, so she took him to the Savage Land, and she informed him that monsters (Poisons) from another dimension were trying to control his mind and make him draw them. Elsa took Kei’s pad away from him, but he was mentally influenced (by the Poison Foom of Reality-66688) into drawing a version of the Poison Fin Fang Foom with his foot, which suddenly summoned the Poison Foom himself to the Savage Land.
(Monsters Unleashed III#7) – Elsa and Kei ran from Foom, with Elsa using a Behemoth-Buster gun to hold Poison Foom back. Elsa tried getting Kei to flee through the Causeway, but he felt obligated to take care of Foom there before anyone else got hurt. After lecturing Kei on the responsibilities of being a hero, she saw Kei summon his monsters to fight Foom, but his monsters were weakened as Kei was suffering a lapse of confidence. Mekara rushed to get Kei and Elsa to safety, but Foom caught up with them, though dinosaurs attacked him, giving them a chance to strategize. Elsa suggested that Kei use his powers to send Foom away, but he found himself unable to do so, the Poisons stuck in his thoughts. Kei instead summoned the real Fin Fang Foom to battle the Poison version.
(Monsters Unleashed III#8) – When Elsa tried teleporting away through the Causeway, the Poison Foom stopped her, determined to keep Kei for himself. Soon, Kei summoned his strength and powered up his monsters again, giving them the strength to defeat and kill the Poison Foom. Back on Mu, Elsa encouraged Kei to open up to his parents about his fears, and she confessed that she wished she had done that with her own father.
(Monsters Unleashed III#9) – Elsa was horrified when Kei brought giant bees to live on the island, admitting that bees and clowns scared her most.
(Monsters Unleashed III#10 (fb) – BTS) – Elsa heard rumors of McTavish and his Happyology cult seeking to awaken the dread lord Uluath in the Pacific Ocean.
(Monsters Unleashed III#10) – Elsa attacked the freighter where the cult was sending out signals to raise Uluath; Elsa initially stopped them, but McTavish’s cat hit a lever, causing ancient ruins and a race of fish-men to be raised to the surface. During the fight, Elsa accidentally pocket-dialed Kei, causing him to think she was calling for help. Kei soon arrived with Aegis, who, through stomping on the fish-men, created enough vibrations to raise Uluath completely. Elsa continued to fight the cat and the cult as Aegis was consumed by Uluath, but he forced his way free and defeated Uluath. Commending Kei on how much he’d grown up, Elsa took her leave of him, encouraging him to find guidance from someone experienced in Inhuman affairs. She promised to come if he ever needed her.

(Dr. Strange: Damnation I#2/Dr. Strange I#387) – Wong explained that Strange had used a spell to restore Las Vegas (which had been destroyed by Hydra) to a living vibrant city, but he had inadvertently raised Mephisto and Hell with it, resulting in several of the Avengers being possessed by demons.

(Jessica Jones: Blind Spot I#2) – Jessica Jones entered Elsa’s home, and Elsa hit her with a guitar.
(Jessica Jones: Blind Spot I#3) – Jessica revealed that she’d also been mysteriously killed, and agreed to join Jessica in hunting down the fish-monsters. Elsa, with a mace, and Jessica, with a axe, killed many of the mutates. Jessica told Elsa that Dia Sloane was dead, and Elsa was shocked. As Jessica went off to solve the crime, she promised to get back in touch with Elsa.
(Jessica Jones: Blind Spot I#4 – BTS) – Jessica learned that Dia Sloane had wish-granting powers, and she had given her ex-boyfriend Jared Beekman the same powers, and he had split herself into a good and an evil version. The evil one had killed Elsa, and the good one had revived her.
(Jessica Jones: Blind Spot I#5) – Jessica called Elsa and Misty Knight to the Sanctum Sanctorum, where they worked with Dr. Strange to set a trap for the evil Jared Beekman. After yelling at Dr. Strange’s magic snakes for being crass, Elsa helped in the fight against the evil Jared, but he tossed Elsa in the water briefly. In time, “good Jared” reabsorbed “bad Jared,” and the fight ended. Elsa told Dia she was glad she was alive, then told her to never come near her again.

grenades to blow the monster up. Elsa, having been saved, shielded
Deadpool with her body, and he flirted with her in response. Elsa grew
concerned when Deadpool was proclaimed as the new King of Monsters.
Elsa reported in to Blaylock.

It is unclear whether the Bloodgem fragment contained within the Bloodstone Choker is part of the Bloodgem that empowered Ulysses Bloodstone. The Bloodgem fragments were gathered during the Bloodstone Hunt in Captain America I#357-362 or so, and seemingly lost into a volcano, but that doesn't mean that Ulysses couldn't have stashed away a small fragment and kept it mystically hidden.
According to Elsa, she had some of the Bloodgem power via genes, and it was present in her blood, indicating that she didn't only gain power via the Bloodstone Choker, but was born with power.
I never got the whole "Pure Blood" vampire business. Vampire powers were never inherited, but rather transferred to others by bite. Being (un)dead, most vampires could not have offspring. Dracula did so only by mystic means. The pureblood nonsense came about from the Blade movies, and now seems to be firmly entrenched in the Marvel Universe, too.
I think most of the
flashbacks in Nextwave should be taken with a grain of salt. Some of
them could've happened, but most just screw up continuity too much to
be included in history.
I think we can assume that the Beyond Corporation messed with the minds of the members of Nextwave. However, since that series, there have been numerous references to Elsa growing up and being trained by her father, so it seems that perhaps she forgot the training (perhaps he hypnotized her to not remember such things until later).
In Nextwave#11 the Nextwave Squad were opposed by several waves of warriors protecting State 51. They were all seemingly creations of the Beyond Corporation. Even those that had similar existing counterparts. Those fighters included Beyond versions of It the Living Colossi, Beasts of Berlin, Living Brains, Wobbows, Stephen Hawkingses (spiked, motorized wheelchair shooting eyeblasts), half-naked ninjas, Chinese Windmill warriors, Elvis MODOKs (ELVISes?), Iron Man helmet-wearing sex midgets, blue ATOM PIRATES with nuclear peglegs, brontosauri with cyclops-visor eyeblasts, Siamese samurai, Victorian street urchin gargoyles w/ electric chimney brushes (who blow black soot/smoke from their mouths), KONG X (giant Wolverine/King Kong hybrid), RAZORMONKIES (smaller Wolverine monkees with claws on hands and feet), Snakes on Planes (giant Venom-spitting snake biplane cyborgs), Mechano, giant space Siberian saber-toothed tigers wearing jetpacks, monster trees, Hidden Men, Mogul of the Mystic Mountain, Elan (like Infant Terrible), Possessors.

Elsa should be distinguished from:
Elsa's mother and Ulysses' former wife, she traveled Europe for some time after breaking up with Ulysses. She eventually settled in England, but returned to Bloodstone House after learning of Ulysses death. She decided to turn his House into a museum (when people come to see 'im), Bloodstone Curios, and she became quite infatuated with Charles Barnabus. She was also well into the third trimester of her pregnancy (via an unknown father) when last seen.
--Bloodstone#1 ([1(fb)], 1-4
A.k.a. Bloodstone Curios, Bloodstone House, Castle Bloodstone, and Bloodstone Mansion (though some of those may have been made up by me...I didn't check too closely). It was one of his bases, established over 18 years ago, and it housed a large number of artifacts, accumulated over his millennia of activity. Barnabus served as the executor of Bloodstone's estate and Mr. Dluga was its caretaker. Adam also secretly lived in the basement. Elise Bloodstone transformed it into a museum or curios house with the aid of Charles Barnabus and Elsa.
(Avengers Arena#14 (fb) ) - Bloodstone Manor was completely destroyed in a fight between Elsa and her Glartrox-possessed brother Cullen.
(Thunderbolts Annual#1) - It was seemingly rebuilt by unknown means (maybe magic).
--Bloodstone#1 ([1(fb)], 1-4, Avengers Arena#14 (fb), Thunderbolts Annual#1
The son of Mr. Dluga, he attended college alongside Elsa and accompanied her on adventures after learning of her activities.
--Bloodstone#1 ([1(fb)], 1-4
The son of papa Dluga and the father of Tomas, he serves as caretaker to the Bloodstone House.
--Bloodstone#1 ([1(fb)], 1, 2
A polish immigrant, he is the father of Mr. Dluga and the grandfather of Tomas Dluga. Although everyone thought he was just crazy, he was the only one who realized that Barnabus was a vampire.
