Jack Russell and his friend Ted

The story of Werewolf by Night begins with the death of Ulysses Bloodstone, the head of an unidentified monster-hunting organisation and rightful owner of the magical Bloodstone. In his funeral Verussa (Elsa Bloodstone’s stepmother) assembles a group of monster (including Jack Russell) hunters with the purpose of acquiring the Bloodstone. Also Elsa, Ulysses’ daughter, also arrives to battle for the Bloodstone, despite Verussa’s advice.

Verussa arranged the tournament and set the rules for the hunt. The hunt begins in a big complicated maze on the estate grounds, with an imprisoned monster seeded with the Bloodstone. As the search progresses, each hunter decides to kill the other to obtain the Bloodstone.

But here’s the twist: Following a meeting with Elsa, Russell discovers the monster and actually he was looking for this and meant to save it, as he was an old friend of the monster. The monster is Man-Thing. Russell decides to carry out his escape plan but coincidently reunites with Elsa in a tomb. They agree to collaborate in order to release Ted and retrieve the Bloodstone. Ted kills another hunter, and Russell destroys the maze’s outer wall, allowing them to escape. After Elsa takes the Bloodstone from Ted, he runs into the woods. As Verussa and the other hunters approach, the Bloodstone responds strongly to Russell’s touch, revealing that he, too, is a monster.
