Marvel Presents #1-2 (1975): 1st Bloodstone

This is a terrible story, but I’m covering it because it is the first appearance of Ulysses Bloodstone, a man made immortal by a “bloodstone” in his chest, who hunts monsters.  It’s not a bad idea, it’s just not done well at all.

He’s not a major character.  He gets just one big story, in Captain America, and it’s not until the early 1990s.  But his daughter, Elsa, has more appearances even later on.
