'''{{C|Count Dracula|dsd}}''' is the titular character of {{dsd}}. He was voiced by [[Theodore Lehmann]]. This is the first version of the [[Marvel Comics|comics]] adaptation to be seen in film. The direct-to-television production was one of the first to connect the comics version, the [[Bram Stoker]] character, and Stoker's real life historical inspiration.

'''{{eps|Captive Hearts}}''' is the fifth [[X-Men Season One|episode]] of {{xm}} and originally aired January 30, 1993. The episode is based on ''Uncanny X-Men'' #169 and #170 and was adapted by [[Robert N. Skir]], [[Marty Isenberg]], and [[Eric Lewald]]. The episode is the source of the popular "Wolverine Crush" Internet meme.
   
Back in the 15th century, Count Vlad Dracula III was ruler of the {{C|Balkans|dsd}} region of {{C|Transylvania|dsd}}. His lands were peaceful and prospered, but faced constant invasion by neighboring peoples like the Bulgarians, Hungarians, and the barbarian Attila the Great. The Transylvanians were adept at defending themselves and Vlad was a great military leader. They stopped all invasions but their enemies kept coming. Growing desperate, Vlad began impaling his victims on pikes and setting them across his lands as a warning. It had the opposite effect and they banned together to stop his cruelty with his gruesome death. The death attracted the attention of {{C|Satan|dsd}}. The dark lord resurrected Vlad as the first {{C|vampire|dsd}}, who would lead his forces of evil.
+
Following their near defeat in {{eps|Deadly Reunions}}, [[Professor X]] ([[Cedric Smith]]) pushes his [[X-Men]] hard in the [[Danger Room]]. [[Storm]] ([[Iona Morris]]) leads the team in training and defeats the simulated threats. However, Xavier increases the danger by having the room close in on them, triggering Storm's claustrophobia causing her to endanger the team. Xavier stops the training and warns that she will need to overcome this problem if she needs to lead. Afterwards, [[Jean Grey]] ([[Catherine Disher]]) visits [[Wolverine|Logan]] ([[Cathal J. Dodd]]), who is still recovering from his battle with [[Sabretooth]], before her date with [[Cyclops|Scott]] ([[Norm Spencer]]). Logan then tells Jean he loves her causing her to flee.
   
For hundreds of years the count terrorized the world while becoming a legend. He converted the people of his lands into vampires while his {{C|Dracula's Castle|dsd|castle}} fell into ruin. In the 19th century, two {{C|Vampire Hunter|dsd|vampire hunters}} named {{C|Jonathan Harker|dsd}} and {{C|Abraham Van Helsing|dsd}} came to kill him. However, Dracula woke and killed the two of them before they could stake his heart. Eventually he found Europe too hostile towards him and he moved to {{C|Boston|dsd}} in America. He grew to resent his undead existence and plotted revenge against Satan.
+
While on their date, Jean tries to get Scott to relax and not think about the team. Just then, a mutant boy named [[Leech]] ([[John Stocker]]) steals some fruit. Scott and Jean follow to stop the angry mob that chases him. They follow into a subway station to find a group of mutants attacking the mob. They fight to protect the angry humans. However, they are knocked out by [[Annalee]] ([[Kay Tremblay]]) and kidnapped by [[Sunder]] ([[Dan Hennessey]]). Meanwhile, Wolverine becomes angry at the thought of the lovebirds spending so much time together.
   
In modern times, Dracula discovers the {{C|Fellowship of the Black Mass|dsd}}, a group who worships Satan, who were planning to give a woman named {{C|Dolores|dsd}} to Satan as a bride. Dracula goes to the cult's {{C|Cult Church|dsd|church}} and kidnaps the woman while pretending to be Lucifer. He takes her back to his mansion but finds he cannot bring himself to suck the blood out of her body. He still needs to feed and kills two other women. Dracula finds himself having mortal lustful thoughts and marries Dolores. The two have a child they name {{C|Janus|dsd}}.
+
Scott wakes up in an underground bunker with Leech having taken his powers. Sunder takes them to their leader, [[Callisto]] ([[Susan Roman]]), who explains that they are [[Morlocks]], mutants too deformed to live among humans. She admits to following Scott and explains she had Leech lure Scott and Jean into their tunnels. She tells him that she wants him as her mate. Scott demands to see Jean, who gets out of her bonds and attacks the Morlocks. She gets a brief message to Xavier before being knocked out.
   
A year later, the Black Mass offer to baptize the child and Dracula arrogantly accepts. The three go back to the church but find it is a trap. The {{C|Cult Priest|dsd|cult's priest}} became aware of Dracula's deception by the real Satan and covers all the openings with {{C|Cross|dsd|crosses}}. The priest tries to kill the vampire lord, but accidentally kills the infant Janus. Dracula kills the priest but is confronted by three new vampire hunters: {{C|Hans Harker|dsd}} (son of Jonathan), {{C|Rachel Van Helsing|dsd}} (granddaughter of Abraham), {{C|Frank Drake|dsd}} (his own descendant), and their dog {{C|Elijah|dsd}}. Dolores convinces Dracula to stop the fighting and he flees to mourn their son.
+
Xavier finds the general location of Scott and Jean and sends the X-Men under Storm's command. [[Gambit]] ([[Chris Potter]]) worries about Storm's claustrophobia but Storm pushes through it. They are eventually attacked by the Morlocks and fend them off. They chase the Morlocks deeper into the tunnels and find that Annalee has hypnotized Jean. Wolverine attacks Annalee and frees Jean. Callisto confronts them and shows the dead body of Scott. Wolverine attacks the corpse revealing him to be [[Ape]] ([[Ross Petty]]) in disguise. The X-Men and Morlocks start fighting, Wolverine chases Callisto through the tunnels, [[Rogue]] ([[Lenore Zann]]) and Sunder start a rivalry, and [[Pestilence|Plague]] ([[Judy Marshak]]) infects Gambit.
   
He lives in a nearby cave with regular bats until he notices the light of {{C|God|dsd}} coming from the cemetery of his son. He finds that the creator of all things has resurrected his son as an adult with powers to stop him. He leaves the cemetery but Janus confronts him and overpowers him. Dracula escapes and returns to his cave. However, he then finds that Satan has kidnapped Dolores. He goes to rescue her and the dark lord brings the two to {{C|Hell|dsd}}. Satan dominates their battle, but Dolores saves him as her powers are revealed and they are the ones Janus inherited. They are returned to their home, but Dracula sees his reflection in a mirror and finds himself mortal again.
+
Wolverine eventually finds the real Scott and, after a brief moment to consider ending their rivalry, takes him to back to the others. Callisto realizes that Wolverine loves Jean as well and has Annalee force the X-Man into attacking the others. After Jean is forced to knock Wolverine out, all seems lost until Storm challenges Callisto for leadership of the Morlocks. The two engage in hand-to-hand combat and eventually Storm wins. She offers to let the Morlocks return to the surface but they prefer to stay underground. She gives temporary leadership back to Callisto and the X-Men leave. Back at the [[Xavier Mansion|mansion]], they check on Gambit to find he will make a recovery. Scott and Jean head to Logan's room to thank him but find him gone with a picture of them tore up.
 
Above all, Dracula feared death. He left Dolores and headed to {{C|New York City|dsd}} where the vampire {{C|Layla|dsd}} was feasting. He became a simple mugger in order to satisfy his now mortal hunger before finding Layla. He confronted the woman but she refused to make him a vampire again. She too resented her immortal existence and blamed Dracula. She attacked him then left him to his mortal misery. Janus found Dracula but spared him as he was no longer one of the undead. He did warn his father that they would have to fight if Dracula continued his quest.
 
 
Dracula returned home to Transylvania to find a vampire who would turn him. He uncovered the vampire {{C|Mallisa|dsd}}. However, she too would not turn him. She explained that all vampires knew he took on a mortal wife and felt betrayed. The other vampires left their graves and attacked their former sovereign leader. He fled to a nearby cottage where he used the family's cross to destroy his pursuers. Outside, he was confronted by the new leader: {{C|Sir Tomo|dsd}}. The two battled for reign over the vampires with Tomo using his powers to overcome Dracula. However, Dracula's hand was burned with the figure of a cross while in the cabin, which he used to kill Tomo. The vampires once again praised Dracula as their leader but he was disgusted that he unknowingly became a tool of Heaven.
 
 
The count returned to his ruined castle where he found the energies of the place returned his vampirism. However, he was confronted by Harker who vowed to kill him once and for all. Dracula overpowered the mortal, but Hans had a trick. He used a silver wheel spoke to fatally wound the vampire lord. He then used a bomb to disintegrate Dracula and destroy the castle. Janus returned to his mother and became a living infant once more. His castle was left as a reminder of his dark deeds. Presumably, he returned to Hell to be tortured for all eternity by Satan.

Storm Fights Callisto

"Captive Hearts" is the fifth episode of X-Men and originally aired January 30, 1993. The episode is based on Uncanny X-Men #169 and #170 and was adapted by Robert N. Skir, Marty Isenberg, and Eric Lewald. The episode is the source of the popular "Wolverine Crush" Internet meme.

Following their near defeat in "Deadly Reunions", Professor X (Cedric Smith) pushes his X-Men hard in the Danger Room. Storm (Iona Morris) leads the team in training and defeats the simulated threats. However, Xavier increases the danger by having the room close in on them, triggering Storm's claustrophobia causing her to endanger the team. Xavier stops the training and warns that she will need to overcome this problem if she needs to lead. Afterwards, Jean Grey (Catherine Disher) visits Logan (Cathal J. Dodd), who is still recovering from his battle with Sabretooth, before her date with Scott (Norm Spencer). Logan then tells Jean he loves her causing her to flee.

While on their date, Jean tries to get Scott to relax and not think about the team. Just then, a mutant boy named Leech (John Stocker) steals some fruit. Scott and Jean follow to stop the angry mob that chases him. They follow into a subway station to find a group of mutants attacking the mob. They fight to protect the angry humans. However, they are knocked out by Annalee (Kay Tremblay) and kidnapped by Sunder (Dan Hennessey). Meanwhile, Wolverine becomes angry at the thought of the lovebirds spending so much time together.

Scott wakes up in an underground bunker with Leech having taken his powers. Sunder takes them to their leader, Callisto (Susan Roman), who explains that they are Morlocks, mutants too deformed to live among humans. She admits to following Scott and explains she had Leech lure Scott and Jean into their tunnels. She tells him that she wants him as her mate. Scott demands to see Jean, who gets out of her bonds and attacks the Morlocks. She gets a brief message to Xavier before being knocked out.

Xavier finds the general location of Scott and Jean and sends the X-Men under Storm's command. Gambit (Chris Potter) worries about Storm's claustrophobia but Storm pushes through it. They are eventually attacked by the Morlocks and fend them off. They chase the Morlocks deeper into the tunnels and find that Annalee has hypnotized Jean. Wolverine attacks Annalee and frees Jean. Callisto confronts them and shows the dead body of Scott. Wolverine attacks the corpse revealing him to be Ape (Ross Petty) in disguise. The X-Men and Morlocks start fighting, Wolverine chases Callisto through the tunnels, Rogue (Lenore Zann) and Sunder start a rivalry, and Plague (Judy Marshak) infects Gambit.

Wolverine eventually finds the real Scott and, after a brief moment to consider ending their rivalry, takes him to back to the others. Callisto realizes that Wolverine loves Jean as well and has Annalee force the X-Man into attacking the others. After Jean is forced to knock Wolverine out, all seems lost until Storm challenges Callisto for leadership of the Morlocks. The two engage in hand-to-hand combat and eventually Storm wins. She offers to let the Morlocks return to the surface but they prefer to stay underground. She gives temporary leadership back to Callisto and the X-Men leave. Back at the mansion, they check on Gambit to find he will make a recovery. Scott and Jean head to Logan's room to thank him but find him gone with a picture of them tore up.
