In the MU, Atlantean sorcerers -- not the blue-skinned Homo mermanus, but the humanoids who lived on the island before it sank, who were besieged by King Kull -- created the first vampires, 15,000 years ago, using rituals from the Darkhold.
(Atlantis sank 10,000 years ago, then was claimed 2,000 years later by the blue-skinned Homo mermanus. To my knowledge Marvel's never said where they came from -- they just showed up and claimed the ruined city of Atlantis for their own, 8,000 years ago.)
Could it be some sort of Vampire-God Red Skull and the Thule-ians (Thuleans? Thulians?) tried to summon? (Isn't he draugr a type of Norse vampire?)
