VAMPIRELLA: THE HARRIS YEARS
With the help of Adam van Helsing (also finding redemption in Drakulon) she restores the Styx, the river of blood that provides nourishment for the inhabitants of Drakulon (which we now know to be vampires) and bids her mother farewell one last time before Lilith is taken by the Hand of God. But it isn't quite over yet. Although Vampirella spends some considerable time ridding the Earth of vampires as she promised her mother, she finds herself back on Drakulon (Hell) again.
This time she is seeking the Heart of Darkness, the heart of Malkuth - an angel created with free will who chose evil and was killed by another angel, Metatron. Lilith (who it appears has not told the entire truth to Vampirella) created Vampirella in Malkuth's likeness, yet created her as a force for good so she could release the spear holding Malkuth's heart, and thus end creation. This was Vampirella's true destiny, to remove the lance and destroy everything as Lilith's final vengeance on God!
This she does, and destroys creation, but then by destroying Metatron's heart immediately afterwards she creates a new beginning for life, the universe and everything.
Returning to Earth, Vampirella continues with her more mundane crusade to rid the world of vampires, trolls and any other nasties that prey on humans. But still, all is not right. Her memories sometimes contradict themselves, or (on closer inspection) are obviously ridiculous.
With the aid of a psychic she regresses and discovers that her mother (Lilith) and her lover (the Demon Lord, Belial) had created Vampirella out of Lilith's blood and the soil of Drakulon to be the ultimate killing machine. Lilith was being drained of energy by all her vampire children, but when Vampirella destroyed a vampire that vampire's energy returned to Lilith, making her stronger and stronger. Alone since Lilith had been destroyed by the Hand of God, Belial kidnaps Vampirella returning her to Drakulon where he manipulates a mass battle where she destroys thousands of vampires in a berserker, killing frenzy. As his minions die at the hands of Vampirella, Belial uses the surge of energy and Vampirella's blood to revive Lilith.
The revived Lilith shows her true colours as an arch-demon, and casually destroys her daughter who is now surplus to requirements. In her dying moments, Vampirella draws on the life force of Drakulon itself and manages to destroy Lilith.
Returning to Earth, Vampirella has to come to terms with the fact that she was purely a tool created to empower her evil mother, Lilith, and she is now merely a highly efficient killing machine with no purpose in life ...
In the early part of 2010 the rights to Vampirella were purchased by Dynamite Entertainment.
So far they have been very tight lipped about the future for Vampirella, and how much of her history will remain.
Where Vampirella goes from here, only time will tell.
