So a quick guy with nebulous magical swords vs. substantial super-strength, weather manipulation, telepathy, creature control, shape-shifting, and immunity to many kinds of weapons.  You can understand why I might question the quick guy winning.

He's a comic character, there will be highs and lows to average.
Still, what issue, I'll look at it later tonight and see how he gave Drac the business.

Isn't Marvel Dracula something like Colossus strength + Storm's weather control + shapeshifting and some telepathy and magic ability on top of that?  That kind of strength and versatile power seems pretty significant. 

Any Drac experts have some notable fights to look at?

The thing with Dracula is that it all depends on the type of blood he drinks. If he drinks the blood
of someone superhuman (or just NOT human) he gets a colossal upgrade in power.

Drinking Sif's blood allowed him to stalemate Thor in a contest of controlling thunder, and drinking
Storm's blood allowed him to catch Colossus' fist with one hand effortlessly, and throw him away.
IIRC drinking the blood of one of Apocalypse's kin allowed him to force Apocalypse down on his
knees via hypnotic suggestion.

So he has the potential to become a very overwhelming opponent, but the catch is, he needs the
blood of someone superhuman first.

Although he DOES have the ability to summon thunderclouds (and thunder) as well as hurricanes.
He did this against the Silver Surfer in their fight, although these things (obviously) didn't do a
damn thing to him.

Keep in mind though that this was a HORRIBLY written fight and equally horrible low showing
for the Surfer. Although the narrative states that the Surfer is being influenced/slightly controlled,
which is what made him so weak. He even makes some comment about being near Dracula
actually weakens him. Which is stupid fucking bullshit, but that's the 70's for ya.

And besides, Drac has also (although not often) been portrayed as having a strong tactical
mind and skill in combat.

There are some other 1-time high ends for Dracula that required a maguffin in order to beat
him, but those are again, 1-time deals. Not the standard norm.

The last story arc of Captain Britain and MI13. And while I appreciate characters have lows, let’s not forget that Drac palming a punch from Colossus and trouncing the X-Men isn’t an average showing either.

I assume you mean isn't an average showing.  Red Exodus makes it sound like all the impressive stuff Drac does that I am familiar with came from unique blood amps.  That being the case, it sounds like standard Drac in a vs thread is pretty weak and thus would lose.

Anyway, was a fun thread.

Yeah, my bad.

I wouldn’t say Dracula is weak. It’s just that Drizzt is really fucking strong. He’s not just a standard D&D guy with a sword. I’m not a fan of his at all, and stopped reading his books well before he became so uber, but as Skel notes his feats are very convincing.

Drac has done impressive things to be sure, but it depends on the circumstance.

I mean he has resisted Dr. Strange's attempts at controlling him and
even nearly killed him in their first encounter.

Vice versa with him getting the better of a weakened Surfer, despite the
major bullshit involved.

I dunno, he's done some impressive things even without special blood. For example, in a mini a ways back, he not only didn't have special blood, he was sick as a dog from a specially engineered disease. He was still able to summon a hurricane powerful enough to completely annihilate an entire city.

Yeah, I just googled scans and Drac has no trouble with him, not sure what MTL is referring to.

Drac has more versatility here than the downward turn of Sock fuckers downed face. I like Drizzt as a character.  But, Drac's proven he's more than a handful for even the X-men and then some.  Drac's on another level. Even for Drizzt.

Cant say i agree, though.

Didn’t Black Knight decapitate him?

I’m really letting myself down here.
