Nosferata (Marvel)
Real Name: Purple Hayes
Search for 'Nosferata (Marvel)' on Amazon

None. Nosferata uses a wide variety of bat-based weapons and equipment. These include her Nosferatarang and her car, the Nosferauto.

An obvious riff on Batman, Nosferata originally appeared in The Sensational She-Hulk, a book which was famous for it's breaking of the fourth wall, and crazy "in" jokes.

Purple's parents were killed in front of her at a young age, after which she immersed herself completely in criminology. As an adult she attempted to defend others against such criminals, but was handed a beat down by a gang of criminals who caught her off guard. She decided to take on an identity to strike terror into the hearts of evil doers, and was inspired by a rubber bat that was thrown at her by a homeless person.

In her first public appearance as Nosferata, she helped She-Hulk prevent a delivery of Serious Gas to the head of Dorkham Asylum, Jack Serious (a riff of the Joker). Jack Serious had captured She-Hulk and was planning to experiment with the effects the gas would have on her. Nosferata appeared in time to save She-Hulk, and learned that Jack Serious was the man who had murdered her parents. Serious fled from She-Hulk and Nosferata and ended up as a causality of the inmates of Dorkham asylum.

Nosferata later aided She-Hulk again, against the Adrennazon who had framed She-Hulk for murder.

Nosferata was last seen at She-Hulk's time infraction trial. She had been plucked from time, presumably to take the stand as a witness for She-Hulk. After Razorback's less than helpful testimony, she commented "Nice going, pighead".
