Turac impales Lianda through the heart with a wooden spear killing her. Believing that the woman had done her job he takes the weakened Dracula away laughing at how he got what he wanted without paying the old gypsy. Dracula revives sometime later to find himself locked in his own dungeon where Turac mocks him by bringing Dracula his wife and son, Vlad.
Turac threatens to harm both of them unless Dracula agrees to pledge his loyalty to the Turkish monarch who wishes control of the land. Dracula initially refuses to bow down to his enemies, however, he buckles when Turac threatens to kill his wife, Maria. Turac leaves Dracula alone briefly with his wife and child, and Maria tells Dracula that while he was unconscious, Turac and his men had raped her before his unconscious body and begs for Dracula's forgiveness.
Hearing this Turac reenters the room and furiously demands that Maria go to "his" bedchambers. Refusing to be raped once more, Maria tries to get away from Turac, however, in the scuffle she trips and strikes her head against the dungeon walls, the blow strong enough to kill her. In a rage of fury over his wife's death, Dracula breaks free of his bonds and kills Truac's guard and then easily overpowers Truac himself. Realizing that he has been turned into a vampire, Dracula then feeds upon his enemy, draining him of all his blood.
When Turac's guards come to see what the commotion is all about they are put under Dracula's hypnotic spell and killed. After all of Turac's men have been destroyed, Dracula then takes his son and dead wife's corpse in his bat form.

Kriss dismisses the "late" Dracula's story as nothing but gypsy superstition. Their talk is interrupted when a family of gypsies are brought before him. The father warns of a rebellion and is ordered to be put in the stable the only fitting place for him according to Kriss and orders his young daughter to be brought up to his room for later.
He then charges the gypsy's son to be his messenger boy. Kriss then resumes his work, happy with the fact that he has subjugated the people of the region. This won't last long for Kriss, as Dracula has returned to Transylvania to find his home occupied by Nazi soldiers. Furious, Dracula goes out and attacks some of the soldiers that are guarding the castle, killing them all to be found by Kriss and his superiors.
Seeing the bite marks on the necks of his men, thinking that this is some kind of gypsy trick order the father out of the stable and has him executed. Kriss returns inside the castle, unaware that Dracula still stalks outside. He goes to Valeria, the young gypsy girl and asks her if she would ever kill him if she had the chance. When she tells him she would, he shoots her dead in cold blood.
As this is happening, Dracula continues to feed upon the Nazi soldiers around the base. Furious and continuing to blame the gypsy's for more of his men dying, Hauptmann Kriss sends his men into the nearby village.
There he orders his men to open fire and they exterminate the whole town. Returning to the castle, they find that yet another one of their troops has been killed. Furious, Kriss orders Hanson to drive a stake into the heart of the young gypsy boy in his command. Hanson is hesitant at first, but ultimately follows orders despite the boy's pleas for mercy.

When the tour group leaves to meet the dusk closure of the cemetery, a young couple decides to stay on the property for a moment of passion.
Once he'd secured this, he launched a pre-emptive strike on MI 's superheroes, launching specially-bred vampires at the Earth like missiles. It was also shown he still possessed contempt and bigotry towards Muslims, and intended to exterminate them once he had secured Britain; as part of his attack, he went to the parents of Faiza Hussain ,  attacking her mother and taking her father along with Killpower , an MI agent sent to protect the family hostage.
MI were manipulated into exposing the whereabouts of Quincy Harker's remains, magically treated to prevent vampires from entering the UK without invitation, so Dracula could destroy them. Once that was done, with the help of Fate, he launched a series of warships towards Earth. In order to stop Dracula from finding out the remains were fake, he was briefly trapped in a demonic "Dream Corridor" which saw him live out his fantasies of victory ending with him standing in a conquered House of Commons while holding the Speaker's mace ; as well as giving MI some intelligence on his plans, it stopped him from sending in advance teams.
Once he escaped, there were a series of attacks to keep him occupied until the warships entered British airspace without invitation, wiping out the bulk of his forces. While Dracula was able to seriously wound Black Knight, he was slain with a single blow from Excalibur, leaving Britain victorious.
However, Dracula declines and leaves shortly after.
When Xarus tries to attack Dracula, he rips off Xarus' head. Although he contemplated attacking the X-Men, Cyclops reminded him that they had had custody of his body for seventeen hours before the head was reattached, suggesting that they had included a 'contingency plan' in Dracula similar to the plan they had used to infiltrate Xarus's forces by temporarily shutting down Wolverine 's healing factor so that he could be turned and then returned to normal.
Although Dracula suspected that Cyclops was bluffing, he complimented Cyclops's style and allowed them to depart, even returning the now-vampire Jubilee to the X-Men. It is revealed that he has the mysterious Raizo Kodo and his legion of vampires called "the Forgiven" locked up in his dungeon. Dracula then prepares the vampires for his last stand. In the end, Nul is defeated when Inka uses a vampire-mesmerizing spell to take the form of Betty Ross, causing the Hulk to break free of the hammer's magic and revert to normal.
On the way, she falls in love with him instead and, during the extended trip, her brothers are killed by Dracula to secure the kingdom of Monster Metropolis as his own. This causes Shiklah to deny him the throne by marrying Deadpool, driving Dracula into a rage not because of the power and kingdom he lost, but because he was cuckolded by "an escaped mental patient".
After a fight in which he is stabbed with Deadpool's severed hand, poisoned by the mercenary's blood and his army mostly wiped out, Dracula flees into hiding, leaving Shiklah as queen of the monsters. Shiklah has had enough of the humans and started a war to annex New York. Deadpool comes to Dracula for help in stopping her, threatening him with a wooden stake. Dracula cannot remember Shiklah's name at first, until Deadpool angrily reminds him. He states that he hates Deadpool, who replies that Dracula hates himself more, which actually makes him Shiklah's type.
Once they return to New York, Dracula is able to gain control of the vampires in Shiklah's army to fight against her monsters. However, the second he meets Shiklah, he proposes to her - wanting to merge their kingdoms and rule with the humans at their feet. Deadpool angrily curses Dracula. Dracula and Shiklah are married by Mephisto, while an angry Deadpool and a confused Spider-Man are tied up and made to watch.
Dracula and Shiklah share a kiss, and she thanks him for giving her the wedding she always wanted - with chaos and fire burning.
However, Shiklah's monsters tell her that they do not wish to be ruled by a monarch any longer. Shiklah is shocked that her subjects want her run off, and Deadpool shows up to tell her she cannot marry Dracula.
He argues that the entire reason they married was because he was saving her from Dracula, reminding her that Dracula killed her brothers.
Shiklah shrugs it off, and tells Deadpool that he would have done the same if he knew them. She then attacks him, telling him that he cannot tell her who she can impetuously marry.
After one last tryst and talk with Deadpool, Shiklah emerges and tells Dracula to let their subjects rule themselves, stating she does not want to rule by force. Dracula eventually relents, stating that he was retired anyway before Deadpool dragged him into this fight. He leaves with Shiklah, who wants to see more of the world. Shiklah wrote Deadpool a note, stating she was off for some stake-play with Dracula. Old Man Logan tracks Jubilee to Dracula's castle, where it is revealed that she is under the vampire's control.
Dracula bites Old Man Logan, but his healing factor is able to resist the vampirism. Jubilee eventually breaks free from Dracula's influence, allowing Old Man Logan to decapitate Dracula. Dracula's head is given to a Sentinel that then throws it into the sun.
