Blade and Blade2 ....Subject: Genre
The character, Blade, from the comic book series, "Tomb of Dracula," was adapted into the films "Blade" and "Blade 2" (http://www.blade2.com) each of which depicts that character fighting mafia-like vampires.
In recent years, the comic book genre has become popular in the film industry.
Blade is a comic book hero. And, as such, he wears a uniform and uses his abilities, or powers, to protect mankind against evildoers.
His uniform consists of all black clothing, including a leather
trench coat equipped with a sheath for his sword. His abilities include hand-to-hand martial arts combat techniques that utilize sword fighting.
His abilities and choice of uniform stem from the fact that he was born of a
woman bitten by a vampire and inherited their strengths.
The idea of a character having special abilities and wearing a uniform symbolizing those abilities can be successfully incorporated into any screenplay, regardless of
genre. By doing so, a screenwriter can enhance his story, making his script more dramatic.
