    Makehuman is for generating human meshes from user set variables, almost always with the intent of importing into another program. Blender is a full 3D modelling/rendering program, but has no human generation features.

    The author of MakeHuman has created a plugin for Blender that allows complete generation and customization of a great range of models. I would go so far as to say that the Blender plugin basically obviates the need for MakeHuman.

    ManuelbastioniLAB was made by one of the same developers after their time on MakeHuman. Unlike the external MH, MbL functions as a plugin within blender and might be considered a spiritual successor. For a description of the difference by the developer, see this page: http://www.manuelbastioni.com/guide_main_differences_from_makeHuman.php
