Blade and the Howling Commandos is the 21st and 22nd episodes of Ultimate Spider-Man's season 2. They aired on October 5, 2013.


Blade: On Halloween night, Spider-Man's team are tasked with delivering a half of Tekamentep's Ankh (an ancient Egyptian artefact) to skilled vampire hunter Blade. They are attacked by an army of vampires sent by the vampire king Dracula, who wants to use the Ankh's power to render himself immune to vampire weaknesses such as sunlight. Once the Ankh is safe, Fury sends the team and Blade to retrieve the second half from storage in a museum before Dracula can get to it.

The Howling Commandos: Dracula has obtained both halves of Tekamentep's Ankh and has most of Spider-Man's team under mind control. In order to stop him activating the Ankh before sunrise, Spider-Man and Blade join forces with Nick Fury's Howling Commandos (a S.H.I.E.L.D. task force consisting of various heroic monsters like Frankenstein's MonsterWerewolf by NightN'Kantu, the Living Mummy, and Man-Thing) and travel to Dracula's castle in Transylvania to retrieve the Ankh.


Part One

The team waited in a cemetery for their S.H.I.E.L.D. contact but are attacked an army of shadow vampires working for Dracula himself. They are helped by Blade who is revealed to be the S.H.I.E.L.D. contact. He vows to deliver an ancient, powerful magical relic into the hands of Director Nick Fury at any cost. Dracula plans to obtain the pieces of the Tekhamentep's Ankh and join them together so that he can't be harmed by vampire weaknesses. Dracula arrives at the Museum of Natural History after Spider-Man removes the Tekamentep's Ankh from it's cloaking shield. He engages Blade and Spider-Man's team in battle where Nova's supernova maneuver attack didn't work. He even tried to bite Power Man only to discover his invulnerability which resulted in Dracula using his mind-control on Power Man to control him into attacking Blade and the rest of Blade's team. Then Dracula mind-controls the rest of Spider-Man's team which doesn't work on Spider-Man since he had reflective lens in his mask. Seeing as they are in the Herbarium, Spider-Man activates the UV lights which harm Dracula until the Spider-Man's mesmerized teammates got Dracula away from the museum. Spider-Man returns to the Tricarrier to meet with Nick Fury, who introduces him to his new team the Howling Commandos, which consists of Werewolf by Night, N'Kantu the Living Mummy, and Frankenstein's Monster

Part Two

After being introduced to the new team they are interrupted by Dracula along with Spider-Man's mesmerized team when they arrive on the Helicarrier to get Tekamentep's Ankh. Spider-Man tries to fight Dracula when he tries to grab the Ankh as Spider-Man is assisted by Frankenstein's Monster. Dracula succeeds in making off with Tekamentep's Ankh as Werewolf by Night states that Dracula will activate Tekamentep's Ankh at sunrise. Peter still in costume and the commandos go to Aunt Man's house to check if she is alright, setting up vampires traps and N'Kantu casts some protection spells. Using the Monster Truck, Spider-Man, Blade, and the Howling Commandos head to Transylvania to confront Dracula. Spider-Man, Blade, and the Howling Commandos enter Dracula's castle where Dracula unleashes his minions on them. They release the Man-Thing who takes out all the shadow vampires at in one go. When they confront Dracula, the Howling Commandos fight to keep Dracula from activating the Ankh while Spider-Man frees his team. As Dracula prepares to join the pieces of Tekamentep's Ankh, Spider-Man snatches the Ankh out of Dracula's hands with the help of Frankenstein's Monster as the sun rises. This causes Dracula to retreat, N'Kantu took Tekamentep's Anhk for himself which he uses to restore his body and teleport to Manhattan in giant size to deal with Nick Fury (who N'Kantu claimed to have the Howling Commandos as part of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s "collection of freaks") where N'Kantu engages the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. With help from a giant-sized Man-Thing, Spider-Man uses Blade's sword to cut Tekamentep's Anhk from around N'Kantu's neck which regresses N'Kantu back to his mummy form. Spider-Man thanks Blade and the Howling Commandos for their help and tells the team the only thing they are missing is an invisible Man, but at that moment his pants are pulled down to revealed Max, the "Invisible Man" who had been guarding Aunt May's house.
