Werewolf Mania: Are Wolves The New Vamps?

Since 2008, vampire mania has achieved tremendous growth. (Not to say that vamps weren’t loved before, but all of a sudden tanning booths were out and pale so in.) From Damon and Stefan Salvatore to Eric Northman and Bill Compton, we love ourselves some good ol’ vamp action. But now we’re bracing ourselves for the next big thing and, honestly, it’s looking pretty hairy…as in werewolves.

While vampires continue having their bloody fun, werewolf clans are closing in to claim this year’s “Best Supernatural Hotties” award. First, TVD Season 2 focused more on the Lockwood wolf curse and how Tyler deals with his new, painful changes. Next, we have MTV’s guilty pleasure show Teen Wolf that focuses on the life of a high schooler after he gets bitten in the woods. And who can forget the extremely ripped wolf hunks wreaking havoc on True Blood? (Edit: A lovely commenter pointed out that Taylor Lautner and his ab-licious wolf pack from the Twilight saga and the upcoming Breaking Dawn were left out. Since we want do right by these hot wolves, we’re including them!) Basically, wolves have infiltrated the entertainment scene and they don’t seem to be leaving any time soon. (Not that we’re complaining!)

So, which beast has more bite–the vampire or the werewolf? Vote in the comments and tell us what you think about werewolf mania!
