Mephisto’s path to UCM

This fictional demon was created by Stan Lee y John Buscema and first appeared in the comic’Silver Surfer‘ in 1968. Although he is often depicted as the archetype of the Christian devil, the character was actually inspired by Mephistopheles, a demon from German folklore. The character became famous for his role in Marvel Comics’ infamous ‘One More Day’ storyline.

Since the Disney+ series premiered ‘WandaVision’fans have endlessly speculated when this monster could appear in a Marvel Studios production, and the controversy intensified even more after Phase 4 of the MCU ended without receiving the character’s presence until now.
