Fantastic Force 18

Post by Col_Fury » Tue May 06, 2008 12:20 pm

Fantastic Force #18
April, 1996

Appearances:
Psi-Lord(Franklin Richards), Diablo(Esteban De Ablo), She-Hulk(Jennifer Walters), Devlor, Vibraxas(N’Kano), Human Torch(Johnny Storm), Mr. Fantastic(Reed Richards), Thing(Ben Grimm), Invisible Woman(Sue Richards), Lyja Lazerfist, Mephisto-FB

Synopsis:
Pg1-pg7pn1
Psi-Lord and his aunt Huntara fight a bunch of demons. Meanwhile, Diablo gloats while She-Hulk, Devlor, and Vibraxas are held captive behind him.
Pg7pn2-pg8pn1-FB
Diablo makes a deal with Mephisto, but is screwed over. Surprise! After FF3 36-FB, before XM: ASD-FB.
Pg8pn2-pg8pn3
Diablo talks to himself.
Pg8pn4 (of 6)-FB
Fantastic Four #277, no new information.
Pg8pn5-pg22
Psi-Lord and Huntara fight each other while Devlor breaks free and fights Diablo. Huntara is revealed as a construct, and Ps-Lord makes his way to the Diablo fight where he defeats him as well. Later, while the Force is cleaning up the place, Johnny shows up and gets yelled at by Vibraxas. Johnny reveals it wasn’t his fault when Reed Richards walks through the door, showing he isn’t dead after all.

References:
Continued from last issue.

As it turns out, that wasn’t the real Huntara. Since this issue is continued from last, and she’s not listed for that issue, it looks like we already knew that.

Remember when Reed was dead? He’s back here, bearded, long haired, and wearing a trench coat. Reed was found in FFU 12, which continued directly into FF 408 & 409. By the time FF 410 comes around, Psi-Lord is already making an appearance. So really, the only place for this to go is between FF 409 & FF 410.

Here’s the question. I don’t have Hell’s Angels 1, Death’s Head 14, or any issues of Mortigan Goth: Immortalis. Any idea where Diablo’s origin goes in Mephisto’s chronology? If it helps, it’s sometime before November 1810…

Those Marvel UK publications populated fifty cent and quarter bins abundantly.

Here’s the question. I don’t have Hell’s Angels 1,
987 CE

Death’s Head 14,
Did you mean Dark Angel#14?

or any issues of
Mortigan Goth: Immortalis.

Diablo's fb takes place in the ninth century, 1000 years ago.

By the way, I am guessing it was supposed to be Mephisto in that Fantastic Four III#36 fb. As Snood wrote:
That's interesting, seeing how Diablo was born in 9th Century Spain, while Dracula didn't get his powers until the 15th Century.
I guess Diablo had to wait 6 centuries to learn how to extend his lifespan?
Plus, what did Dracula know about extending human life beyond vamping them?
Dracula's not pictured in that issue, but rather Diablo taunts the girl from the Order of Deacons. I'm thus listing the info in the comments, rather than the history. If and when it occurred is anyone's guess.

Here is a scan from the FF issue.

The figure is inked in red, wears a cape and has fangs, all of which applies to Mephisto. It is hard to tell if he has Mephisto's usual "hockey hair" but the shadows obscure his face.
