MEPHISTO VS... (1987) #4 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Mephisto vs. #4
Guest-starring the Avengers. "His Satanic Majesty's Request" is written by Al Milgrom with art by John Buscema and Bob Wiacek. Mephisto has collected the souls of four of the X-Men's women Rogue, Storm, Psylocke and Dazzler. But he knows he can't keep them all for long. As Rogue's connection with each mutant fades so their spirits return to the mortal realm. But Rogue remains in Mephisto's clutches a pawn in a game he's playing to gain the soul of a god; Thor, to be precise. Meanwhile, the denizens of hell begin to sense weakness in Mephisto as his little corner of Hell starts to erode. A power play is in the making.

Mephisto is above all things, a political being who understands that he vies with great powers, some superior to his own, in order to maintain his realm or enhance it. Subtlety is the order of the day and setting out after Thor, whom the Asgardian Goddess of Death Hel has claimed for her own, must be handled delicately. As he proceeds with his plan, Mephisto has the Living Tribunal, the cosmic protector of the universe's balance, looking over his shoulder, making sure he doesn't upset the order of things. But like a crazed collector unable to deny himself his heart's desire, Mephisto can't stop himself from pursuing the Thunder God's immortal soul. Of course, he has to go through the Avengers to do it!
