It takes a truly smooth, self-confident operator to play off the bumbling, nervous virgin so well.

I....

I....

I'm utterly shocked by this. I was wondering how they could make this work and how it could be "bright". That is MEPHISTO there, among the worst of the worst. Yet this personification was charming in a baffoon kind of way. Not the scheming uber-villain, but just another shmoe.

thanks for posting this. I will get it at my LCBS during lunch.

On a tangent:
Only way this can be retconned is that the guy in red is NOT Mephisto, but someone masquerading as him, and by having Amara go out on the date with the faux-Mephisto and not the real one, she breaks the rules of the agreement.

I did wonder about the faux-Mephisto possibility, or it could be he's just playing a really, REALLY good long game.

Though I am hoping that it really is Mephisto as he appears to be here. An anthropomorphic manifestation of all human evil who's also been lumbered with human emotions on top.

Sympathy for the Devil, man. He's doing exactly what's necessary to make himself seem like not such a bad guy. You can't seduce someone to the dark side if they think of you as a contemptous enemy to fight against at every turn.

Probably. If he was truly the personification of evil, he would have called the city "Frisco." #localhumor

It has to be a long game. This directly contradicts his frequent appearances in Journey Into Mystery.

Yeah, I was thinking that was option #2.

Question: Mephisto plans to maneuver the New Mutants to his side as willing pawns in an upcoming gambit. Against who?

currently at play:
1. Loki and the Asgardians
2. X-Factor and their connection to Rahne's hybrid mutant/god son
3. Cyclop's Omega Level threat X-men team w/ Colossus/Juggernaut & Illyana/Magick

If it is against someone we've seen already, I can't see the play, so it's a long con against a future event.

Option 4: The Pheonix Force.

Okay, that was excellent.

Is there a good jumping on point for the New Mutants series? I might be tempted to check this out.

maybe, Spidey would have enventually retired to be a parent and this was to keep him out there saving lives so the longer lived people he saved could go on to do more crappy stuff

I'm going to assume this is just something Mephisto has to vent every few centuries. Nothing else makes sense unless...

I UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING NOW

THE REASON MEPHISTO STOLE SPIDER-MAN'S MARRIAGE WAS BECAUSE HE NEEDED SOME ESSENCE OF 'TRUE LOVE' SO THAT HE WOULD BE ABLE TO STUDY ROMANCE AND HOW TO FEEL ROMANTIC FEELINGS

YES IT IS ALL CLEAR NOW

nope wait still doesn't make sense

Maybe Mephisto didn't destroy Peter's marriage, maybe he stole his love. For himself. So he could feel it.

Mephisto loves Mary Jan- I mean, Magma.
