Greetings True Believers!

The MU is a dangerous place and with mutants, aliens, gods, gamma monsters, vampires, robots and whatnot running around; the little social rules have extra layers of meaning.

This bartender is about to find that out.


If you aren't reading Journey into Mystery, BEGIN SO NOW.

Mephisto walks into a bar, gets a drink and bitches about his day. Scares the bejesus out the barkeep and talks about gods, devils, Fear Itself and his schemes about Loki.

But it's time to hit that dusty trail...

Alas, scan limits but trust me. It ends like you think it will. Sunspot is right. Don't talk to him, don't even fucking look at him.

Yeah, that guy's stupid.

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; I hear he gets eternity, but he's forced to have terrible relationships with mary sues or poorly written "feisty latinas" or just plain boring characters, and never with his true love . . .

Huh, he's not turned into a blobby cancer monster for all eternity do you?

Please... I would expect at least some variation from Mephisto.

"Trust me."

Okay, this guy is a total brain donor. When the devil uses those words you know you should already be running. Preferably towards a church, but any which way that leads away is good.

What the heck? If Satan walks into your bar and then leaves - you thank your lucky stars and hope he doesn't look back.

YOU DO NOT ASK FOR A TIP. They breed them dumb in the Marvelverse it seems.

I only hope Magma can do better than this fool. Really, let's just try our luck a little more, shall we?

See, this is the kind of thing that makes me blame the writer and editor, not the character. It's a cutesy-poo moment that leads to the punchline of a bad joke. Hey, let's have the hayseed ask the Devil for his tip!

Everything about this -- the set-up, the delivery, the payoff, everything -- is from early high school creative writing 101 at best.

And that seems to be about the only level comics can manage these days.

Any being that uses the adjective "glorious" to describe such a terrifying, mind-boggling concept as eternity must be avoided at all cost.

This isn't "check for the small print and make a rash-ballsy decision" time, it's "run like hell" time!

"How do you feel about living forever?"

"How do you feel about 15%?"

I actually liked the fact that the guy asked for a tip. Not really digging the level of stupid required to make him think immortality from the devil was a good idea, though.

This is a world where touching radioactive stuff doesn't kill you for being a dumbass and may in fact give you superpowers. Natural selection is not present.

Yeah, I think him asking for 15% would have been a lot funnier than whatever "ironic" punishment they come up for the guy. Just show that he's so used to the fantastic it no longer interferes with his ability to think of the mundane.

It's amazing what you can do with your pain receptors turned off....

Let's just say he'll be in the Devil's stories for eternity. At least the ones that get written down....

No, now that I think about it, more like an octopus....

Now, how would Mephisto use a squid or an octopus in his stories? At least the ones he writes down?
