Having left his realm to Blackheart, Mephisto has grown bored. Searching for diversion, he discovers a different universe, that of the Top Cow heroes. He is especially drawn to the power of Sara Pezzini and the Witchblade. He soon formulates a plot to make Pezzini his bride, while he would rule this dimension. He schemes to draw into his web Jamie Tarleton, a.k.a. Fist of Weapon Zero, as well as N'Golth, leader of the transdimensional race, the T'Srri. All that remains is to find a means to travel to this other universe. Finally, Mephisto hits upon the key: the Power Cosmic of the Silver Surfer.
