Former Sorcery Capabilities

  • Nether-Realms: In his youth, Darklore could gaze into and draw power and aid from nether realms.


  • Familiar: Darklore requires his familiar, Meer'lyn, to control his magical energies or they rage out of control and incapacitate him.


  • Familiar: Darklore keeps his familiar, Meer'lyn, with him at all times.
  • Creator Jim Starlin is known to recycle names and concepts from his stories. Between 1976 - 79 he wrote and penciled five short stories for Warren Publishing's book "Eerie" about Darklon the Mystic; one of his ancestors was Darklore II. Darklon even slightly resembles Marvel's Darklore and is also missing his left eye.
  • In that same issue Doctors Hoffstaeder and Bell and the Willwood Hospital from Warlock # 13 had cameo appearances, and Barry Bauman was mentioned.
  • The name also slightly resembles that of (Syzygy) Darklock, the wizard from Dreadstar whose left eye is replaced by a cyborg implant, another earlier Starlin creation.
