Abandoned Love: What the Heck Happened to Blade's Missing Hand?

Every installment of Abandoned Love we will be examining comic book stories, plots and ideas that were abandoned by a later writer without explaining that the previous story was retconned away. Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of Abandoned Love. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.

Today, based on a suggestion by reader Sinsear, we look at whatever happened to Blade's missing hand?

Launching around the time of Civil War, Blade's short-lived 2006-07 ongoing series was a real blast. Written by Marc Guggenheim, drawn by Howard Chaykin and Edgar Delgado with excellent Marko Djurdjevic covers, the book was a fun series.

It pit Blade against his father, who was obsessed with some prophecy that he was intent on forcing Blade into...

Blade has a clever (if drastic) way of getting out of the trap, though...

In the following issue, Blade improvises a stake by shoving a piece of wood into his stump...

He later makes it slightly less makeshift...

The series kind of sort of tied into Civil War at the beginning of the series by making Blade a registered superhero working for SHIELD, and in the next issue, he calls in a favor...

"What favor is that?" you ask?

GUN HAND, BABY!!!
