night werewolf is Marvel’s latest one-off show that explores the darker and creepier side of the MCU’s Phase 4, filed under Marvel Special Presentation. Elsa Bloodstone is one of the series’ main characters, a monster hunter with an intriguing past and an interesting motive.
Laura Donnelly’s Elsa comes from the Bloodstone family and is believed to inherit the Bloodstone weapon until she loses the privilege after leaving her family for several years. She only returns home to claim what is rightfully hers, but her reason for doing so seemed vague.

Werewolf By Night’s Bloodstone: What Is It And What Can It Do?
Verussa Bloodstone (played by Harriet Sandom Harris) met Elsa when she arrived, and later asked why she wanted the device back. The Bloodstone is a very powerful weapon that gives its owner exceptional strength, durability, and longevity. Literally anyone would fight to possess these qualities. Elsa wanted him because of his protective powers.
In the comics, it is revealed that the Bloodstone can protect its owner from vampiric infection. With this in her possession, she will be immune to contact with vampires. It’s just one of many special powers that inhabit the Bloodstone, but it’s the main reason Elsa considers possessing it.
By nature, Elsa is already a skilled hunter. Gaining all of these powers will only make her invincible and more powerful than anyone else on the show. Bloodstone is a treasure trove of secrets, and in addition to strength and agility, it will also give Elsa the ability to fire energy blasts from her palms. The magical properties inside the Bloodstone will slow down her age and allow her to look as young as she wants.

What happens to the Bloodstone in Elsa’s possession?
Besides becoming a super-powered hunter, Elsa can also become the leader of a group of monster hunters once she collects the divine weapon. With an army at her disposal, who will cross her? Elsa might even become the most powerful character in the MCU.
It’s even more exciting to see what Elsa plans to do with the Bloodstone in the future. A lot of possibilities could be drawn from this narrative, like appearing alongside Mahershala Ali’s Eric Brooks in Blade. The vampire hunter could also collaborate with other trail mates.
Marvel Special Presentation is the studio’s latest storytelling format produced for Disney+. This allows Marvel to tell stories that don’t necessarily require multiple episodes, as each event would only take place during one day (or one night).
