Quote:I'm sure a mystery villain named Marlowe and next issue having Mephisto can't possibly connect to Christopher Marlowe's play Doctor Faustus where the main character summons a demon named Mephistopheles.
Peter David must like a lot how this name sounds.
One of his favorite characters is Marlo and there was also Miss Arrow in a story about the 3 Mysterios. In the same story, he implied that Mysterio 1 was undead and was working for one of the Hell-Lords.
The name of the Hell-Lord was not given, back then, but it was probably Mephisto (who was impressed by Mysterio's plan in "Daredevil : Guardian Devil").
