Quincy Harker is a male comic character that features in Marvel Comics.
Quincy Harker was the son of Jonathan and Mina Harker, who played major roles in the conflict between the vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing and Dracula that was chronicled in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula. Jonathan and Mina married after the events depicted in that book, and had Quincy. Quincy was trained as a vampire hunter by Van Helsing, and became his successor. Quincy quickly became Dracula's nemesis; in retaliation Dracula killed Quincy's wife as the Harkers were attending a concert and crippled Quincy, requiring him to permanently use a wheelchair. Despite his disability, Quincy continued the fight, converting his house into a veritable vampire death-trap and his wheelchair into a personal anti-vampire arsenal.
When Abraham Van Helsing's granddaughter Rachel was still a child, Dracula slew her parents before her eyes. Harker then took her under his protection and trained her to become a vampire hunter as well. Harker employed a number of other agents, including Taj Nital and Frank Drake, and formed alliances with Blade and Hannibal King. Harold H. Harold sometimes accompanied the vampire hunters.
Ultimately, Quincy Harker confronted Dracula at Castle Dracula itself in Transylvania. Knowing that he would die soon, as he had recently suffered a heart attack, he activated a time bomb in his wheelchair. Harker plunged a silver stake into Dracula's heart and was about to sever the vampire's head when the explosives went off, killing Harker and demolishing the castle. However, Dracula ultimately resurfaced.
Quincy had one daughter, Edith, who had become a victim of Dracula long before Quincy's death. Quincy left a last will and testament to turn his remains into a safeguard against vampires for the United Kingdom, ensuring all vampires needed to be invited into the country. His remains were seemingly destroyed by Dracula as part of his later invasion plan, but it was revealed that MI:13 had tricked him into destroying fake remains as part of their plan.
