Mephisto Vs. Blue Devil


Blue Devil was a book that I picked up on the strength of a free preview that was presented in Fury of Firestorm.  The whole package looked great, I liked his costume, the set up for the series and the way it mixed the whimsical with the occult.  Plus, the Paris Cullins art was fantastic and fit the tone of the comic perfectly.  Hopefully we will see Blue Devil return in DC Rebirth.

I'd like to see him in a crossover with Marvel/Disney's STAR WARS! I can just picture Han Solo meeting him and asking:

"Are you Chagrian, Devaronian, or a little of both?"

I read and enjoyed the original Blue Devil series, but I've been told that the character became much more serious in later appearances, after his title was cancelled. If that's true, it's a shame!

Mephisto gets all the covers and Nebiros none. Something to do with evil influence of Mephisto perhaps telling author to favor redheads? Inquiring readers want to know!

"Hopefully we will see Blue Devil return in DC Rebirth."

And hopefully that will be Blue Devil as he was to start with, relatively light-hearted, rather than either "sold his soul to a Neron" Blue Devil or "inherited 'costume' is actually Nebiros's skin" Blue Devil...

Would love a Blue Devil/Hellboy team up

In the DCU, every once in a while there's a scene that takes place in an inter-dimensional bar that's "neutral ground" for all the mystic / odd characters. I'd like to think there's a poker game in the back corner with Hellboy, Blue Devil, Daimon Hellstrom, Etrigan, Hellcat, etc. sitting in, and would love to see a cover about that.

Don't forget that Danny is the bouncer there, though...

That bar scene would be a lot of fun especially with a lot of background characters but would probably be a lot of work.
