Sometimes a generic listing for werewolves can be useful, such as when hordes of werewolves are encountered who have been artificially created by Tilda Johnson, a.k.a. "Deadly Nightshade", a.k.a. "Queen of the Werewolves."

As seen in Werewolf by Night (vol. 1) #19 (July 1974), the Libro del Malditos (or, more correctly, the Libro de los Malditos), was a magical tome which contained information about werewolves. There is some speculation that it was a partial copy of the Darkhold.
