Nosferata is a scheming vampire who sought to take control of the Wild Lands from Great Caesar with her vampiric brood.

Like other Wild Landers, Nosferata was a product of experimentation by Project Moreau in the 1940. She lived in the caverns north of Great Caesar's realm Roam. She had occasionally allied herself with Killa and his Gorillas.

One of their assassination attempts on Caesar was foiled by the newly arrived Superboy. She entered in a temporary alliance with Roam and positioned her agent Doctor Canus to research the strange boy. Superboy eventually lead a group of Wild Landers to the human world. With crown prince Tuftan removed from their realm, she ordered her underling Ratsputin to assassinate the king.

Nosferata and Killa joined forces and invaded Hawaii. She explained to Tuftan that his father was dead, and tried to force him to abdicate, but he did not budge. He did however agree to a marriage pact, much to the shagrin of his lover, Tawna. Nosferate made Tawna her personal assistant and endlessly humiliated her, but it backfired - inspired by her experiences of the human world, Tawna started a resistance to overthrow the monarchy.


  • Vampirism: In addition to the various mental and physical benefits that vampires are heir to, they also possess the ability to turn others into vampires as well. Each new vampire is traditionally subservient to the one who "turned" them, but some strong-willed vampires have been known to rebel against their masters.
    • Enhanced Senses: A vampire's senses are enhanced far beyond those of a normal human being.
    • Immortality: So long as vampires continue to consume blood, they will not age beyond the physical state they were in when they first became a vampire.
    • Invulnerability: Vampires are invulnerable to most forms of injury (certain exceptions apply). Bullets, blades and blunt objects do little to no damage to a vampire's body.
    • Regeneration: In addition to being virtually indestructible, whatever damage a vampire does in fact suffer can be healed through the consumption of human blood.
    • Superhuman Strength: A vampire's strength level is several times that of a normal human being and they are considered superhuman.
    • Superhuman Speed: A vampire's speed level is several times that of a normal human being and they are considered superhuman.
    • Superhuman Stamina: So long as they continue to consume human blood, a vampire can function tirelessly without rest or relaxation. However, a vampire's stamina wanes the closer it is to sunrise.
    • Psychokinesis: Most vampires possess some form of psychokinesis. Some are clairvoyant, others can communicate telepathically, some possess mind control. Particularly powerful vampires can control the minds of several people at once.
    • Transformation: Vampires often possess the ability to transform into a variety of creatures or effects such as bats, wolves, rats or even mist. While their physical attributes may fluctuate during such states, a vampire's mental acuity is the same as that when they are in their human shape. A vampire who transforms into an animal may also benefit from that particular animal's attributes including razor-sharp claws, fangs or the ability to fly. Vampires also often demonstrate the ability to alter their appearance at will.
    • Flight: Nosferata is capable of sustained flight by way of her naturally grown wings.
