First Appearance: Morbius: The Living Vampire I#1 (September, 1992)

Powers/Abilities: Fang possessed the ability to turn his body into a liquefied form at command to move through cracks and tight spaces. He could shapeshift his physical appearance, which included turning his fingertips into talons and his teeth into pointed fangs. His blood was a highly virulent poison and usually was fatal to any mortal. In the unique case of Morbius his blood wasn't fatal and actually mutated Morbius while growing inside him into the Lilin Bloodthirst, who slowly gained control over Morbius' physical form.

   Apparently Fang loved the Rockabilly lifestyle.

Height: 5'8" (variable) (by approximation)

(Morbius: The Living Vampire I#1) - Lilith, accompanied by Pilgrim and Blackout, found her children Fang and Nakota at the New York City gothic club known as Limelight. Fang and Nakota kneeled before their mother. She later sent Fang to David Langford's laboratory to taint the serum intended to heal Michael Morbius with his own demonic blood to kill Morbius. Unaware the serum had already been tainted by Langford to kill Morbius the twice tainted serum instead mutated Morbius further in an unpredictable way. Fang was at Lilith's side when she professed her disappointment that Morbius had survived.

(Ghost Rider III#31) - Fang was present with Blackout, Doc, Nakota and Pilgrim when Lilith tended to her mutilated child Meatmarket, who had fallen in battle with the Nightstalkers, Ghost Rider and Johnny Blaze.

   Pilgrim teleported him far north to Greenland where Fang joined Lilith and his brethren Blackout, Doc, Meatmarket, Nakota and Pilgrim at the remains of the Leviathan. Lilith planned to use the Leviathan as a focal point to bring back all her children, but the Midnight Sons joined forces to stop her. Fang joined the battle against the Midnight Sons, but fell victim to Morbius when Lilith asked Fang to defend her from him. Morbius sucked Fang dry and realized that it was his blood that had caused his recent mutation. Lilith was stopped and started to devour her children to regain her strength including Fang's remains.

(Ghost Rider III#41) - Surrounded by the skeletal remains of her children Lilith had regained enough power to give birth to them once again. Aided by Outcast, who ripped open her belly, Fang and her other children were born once again.

   Later Centurious approached Lilith and the Lilin in the far north. Fang and Meatmarket fought through their fear to protect their mother from him, but Centurious flung them away with a mere gesture. Lilith agreed to an alliance with Centurious.

(Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#14) - Allied with Steel Wind the Lilin, including Fang and Outcast, attacked Blaze and his friends from the Quentin Carnival in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Fang attacked Wolf, but when Ghost Rider arrived on the scene the Lilin and Steel Wind fled through a portal created by Pilgrim.

(Ghost Rider III#44) - At Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn Fang was one of Lilith's children at her side when she thanked Blaze for inadvertently bringing back her children and causing a dimensional breach to the Shadow Side. He presumably participated in the attack on the Midnight Sons afterward.

(Morbius: The Living Vampire I#16) - Fang participated in the Lilin's invasion of the Sanctum Sanctorum. He was teleported inside along with Lilith, Zarathos and many other Lilin by his sibling Pilgrim.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#146/2) - On the Shadowside Fang hung out at the Shadow Saloon, sitting alone at a table when Devil-Slayer arrived.

Comments: Created by Len Kaminski, Ron Wagner & Mike Witherby.

Fang was presumably sucked back to the Shadowside Dimension in Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#17 (December, 1993), but he wasn't seen in this issue. Maybe he got away.

I think his shapeshifting had more to do with changing artist, than with his actual ability to liquefy his body, but it works for him. Artistic license is part of his power set. The elongated face is his standard look.
