Delving deeper into the darker side of Marvel, away from the heroes like Thor, Captain America and Iron-Man, we instead find ourselves attending a funeral for Ulysses Bloodstone. Attending his funeral, are various Hunters who have all come to pay their respects, but more importantly, to earn their rite to wield the legendary Blood Stone. Which grants hunters great strength and skill in battle. Also in attendance, is Ulysses' own flesh and blood. His daughter, Elsa Bloodstone has come to claim her birthright but even she has no clue of the strangest stranger among them.
