Rise of the Midnight Sons was a crossover story line published by Marvel Comics from August to November of 1992. Anchored between two issues of Ghost Rider (Volume 2), it focused on Marvel's horror comics line. "Rise of the Midnight Sons" launched not only the Midnight Sons publishing imprint, but also five brand new ongoing titles, Darkhold, Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance, Morbius: The Living Vampire and Nightstalkers. Each issue of the story line was shipped poly bagged and included a "Rise of the Midnight Sons" mini-poster. Each mini-poster represented 1/6th of a larger puzzle that formed a composite illustration when combined with the mini-posters included in the other "Rise of the Midnight Sons" crossover titles. The story line introduced the villainess, Lilith (not to be confused with Lilith Drake) and her demonic children, the Lilin. Lilith and the Lilin would become recurring adversaries throughout all six titles. The nomenclature "Midnight Sons" refers to the nine chosen adventurers who were selected to confront Lilith and her brood. In addition to the nine members of the Midnight Sons, Sorcerer Supreme – Doctor Strange played an integral role in the story line and helped bring several of the core characters together for the story's climax.
