    Mephista last edited by YoinkyBoyo on 02/27/21 01:32PM View full history


    Mephista is a powerful demon and the daughter of the powerful hell lord Mephisto. Although possessing immense power, she is relatively young and inexperienced. One of Mephista's first forays to Earth involved claiming the soul of the Earth sorcerer Baron Mordo. Sent by her father, Mephista would find that the hell lord Satannish also had claims to Baron Mordo's soul. She would have to breach the Earth's Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange's sphere of containment to find and claim Mordo, who was trapped inside. Although she was able to dismiss Doctor Strange's attempts to stop her easily, she could not break into the containment sphere. Then she would find herself face to face with the powerful Satannish. The threat Satannish would present would be grave enough for Mephista to team up with Doctor Strange to stop him from acquiring the containment sphere. Yet the two would fail to stop Satannish, who would depart with the containment sphere, planning to break in back into his native realm. During this time, Mephista would develop a small crush on Doctor Strange. Mephista would have no choice but to report her failure to her father, Mephisto, who was considerably angered by this failing. Mephisto, not one to appreciate losing, would prepare for battle and confrontation against his rival Satannish, venting frustration at Doctor Strange, unaware of his daughter's feelings toward the Sorcerer Supreme. As such, Mephista was secretly relieved when her father would only imprison Strange in a sphere instead of destroying him. Mephista would accompany her father to confront Satannish.


    Mephista is a Marvel comic book character created by Roy Thomas, Dann Thomas, Jackson Guice and Jose Marzan Jr. The character first appears in Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #6 released in 1989.

    Mephisto Vs Satannish

    During the clash between the two hell lords, Mephista would leave her father's side to travel to Doctor Strange's residence, hoping to destroy Mordo's physical body and ensuring his soul could not return to it. She would come across Rintrah and Topaz, an apprentice and associate of Strange. Mephista would find both easy to overcome and defeat. However, Doctor Strange appeared and would be more successful in his battle with Mephista this time around, trapping Mephisto's daughter into the Ruby of Cyttorak, where she would fall into a deep slumber. Strange would threaten Mephisto and Satannish into merging both demonic entities. The risk for both powerful demons to lose their sentience was too great. Both would relinquish their claims on Mordo's soul.


    Mephista is looking to team up with the Isolationist to destroy all mutants. She works with the Celtic Goddess of War and Death, Morrigan.
