I don't know. Either is possible. From a practical perspective, they're equivalent. The artist has license to design Mephisto's look however the artist likes.

I personally doubt Mephisto would leave the visuals entirely up to the living creature's subconscious. Some living creatures may have no frame of reference at all from which to make an image. Thor, for example, or the Silver Surfer, neither of whom would have a Judaeo-Christian devil image in their subconscious, might simply perceive Mephisto as a void. Yet both tended to see him pretty much identically, and the real reason for that was, in both cases the artist was the great John Buscema.
