Background:

Morbius was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gil Kane and first appeared in Marvel Comics’ Amazing Spider-Man #101. This followed the February 1971 updating of the comic-book industry’s self-censorship board, the Comics Code Authority, that lifted a ban on vampires and certain other supernatural characters. It was also the first issue not written by Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee.
