Fictional character biography[edit]

Postmortem was a scientist who for decades had maintained a secret laboratory in the 13th floor of the Chrysler Building in Manhattan, largely paid for with funding by Dracula.[1] He developed a kind of nanite that could rewrite a subject's genetic code, ostensibly to create a "next generation" of vampire. The scientist tested the nanites out on himself and was transformed into Postmortem.

Postmortem was confronted in his laboratory by the vampire hunter Blade, and mistook him for an agent of Dracula, coming to cancel the project's funding. They fought, and Blade succeeded in killing Postmortem.[volume & issue needed]
