According to Doctor Strange, and as the Christian scripts say, Mephisto is The Fallen Angel, also known as Lucifer. Although not as strong as in his own dimension, it is nearly impossible to face Mephisto. To be as strong as in his dimension he has to collect human souls through a demonic pact or just claiming it as a friend. One of his victims was Johnny Blaze, who he converted into the Ghost Rider.[1]

All Hallows

A wave of Demons commanded by Mephisto arrived to New York in order to invade Earth using a demonic variation of the Isotope-8, but, although the difficulties, Ghost Rider ended defeating Mephistio and his horde of demons.[1]


He was one of the Hell lords who went to Earth and fought alongside Red Skull as part of the Syndicate, but was defeated by the Alliance before Doctor Doom revealed this organization to be a facade for his true plans.[1]

Sins of the Fathers

Mephisto was in need of Satana's soul in order to control Blackheart, but she managed to defeat him with the help of the Alliance.[1]

Crisis of Leadership

He was seen on Alcatraz island working alongside Fixer. Together, the two created an army of demonically possessed Sentinels which was later destroyed by Fantomex.
