Werewolf by Night is Marvel’s newest one-off show that explores the darker and scarier side of the MCU Phase 4, filed under Marvel’s Special Presentation. Elsa Bloodstone is one of the main characters in the show, a monster hunter with an intriguing background and interesting motive.
Laura Donnelly’s Elsa comes from the Bloodstone family and is meant to inherit the Bloodstone weapon until she lost the privilege after leaving her family for several years. She returns home only to claim what is rightfully hers, but her reason for doing so seemed vague.
Werewolf By Night’s Bloodstone: What Is It And What Can It Do?
Verussa Bloodstone (played by Harriet Sandom Harris) met Elsa upon her arrival, and later on, asked why she wanted to retrieve the device. The Bloodstone is a very powerful weapon that gives its owner super strength, durability, and longevity. Anyone would literally fight to possess those qualities. Elsa wanted it because of its protective powers.
In the comics, it is revealed that the Bloodstone can protect its owner from vampiric infection. With this in her possession, she will be immune to any contact with vampires. This is only one of the many special powers that inhabit the Bloodstone, but this is the main reason why Elsa plans to own it.
By nature, Elsa is already a skilled hunter. Gaining all these powers will only make her invincible and more powerful than anyone in the show. Bloodstone is a treasure trove of secrets, and aside from strength and agility, it will also lend Elsa the ability to shoot energy blasts from her palms. The magical properties inside the Bloodstone will slow down her age and enable her to look as young as she wants.
What Happens To The Bloodstone In Elsa’s Possession?
More than becoming a super-powered hunter, Elsa can also become the leader of a group of monster hunters once she claims the godly weapon. With an army at her disposal, who is going to cross her? Elsa might even become the most powerful character in the MCU.
It is even more exciting to see what Elsa plans to do with the Bloodstone in the future. A lot of possibilities could be drawn from this narrative, such as appearing alongside Mahershala Ali’s Eric Brooks in Blade. The vampire hunter could also collaborate with other fellow trackers.
Marvel’s Special Presentation is the studio’s latest storytelling format produced for Disney+. This allows Marvel to tell stories that do not necessarily require several episodes, as each event would only take place for a span of a day (or night).
Werewolf by Night is now streaming on Disney+.
