Characters Appearing: Amon (Demon Steed), Hecate (Demon Steed), Hellstorm, Satan, Set (Demon Steed)
Son of Satan #2-3
Issue(s): Son of Satan #2, Son of Satan #3
Hellstorm refuses, but then the Possessor shows up with his enthralled Navajos and a big fight breaks out.
Satan himself had vowed to sit the Possessor stuff out after Hellstorm refused his help, but the Possessor dumbly opens a second front and attacks Hell while he's fighting Hellstorm and Baphomet, so Satan moves in and suddenly there's a big messy war going on.
We learn that the Possessor himself is the son of a carnival stage magician. His mother, the magician's assistant, was a minor psychic, something the father was jealous of, so the father killed his wife. Eventually the boy's powers manifested and he killed his father and took over the magic act. Then one day two devils tried to possess him and instead got bonded with him.
And in the end, the young Navajo that we saw in issue #1 gets a bit of a power-up and becomes Nightfire.
He vows to take care of and try to reform the defeated Possessor.
But since neither Nightfire nor the Possessor ever appear again, you can just, like, never mind.
Sonny Trinidad's art doesn't quite pull off the weirdness of the Possessor's multiple heads as you'd like.
The next issue blurb promises a new story-line and a new direction and that was probably a good idea.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Hellstorm left to respond to a call from help from the Ghost Rider after last issue. I have him getting waylaid with additional housecalls in Marvel Two-In-One #14 and Defenders #32 before finally making it to Ghost Rider #17-19 and then back to this arc.
Continuity Insert? N

Hellstorm is his super-hero name.
