If you could have your way with Azazel...

Despite Freja & Tears' best efforts to try to convince me otherwise, I'm convinced that this is in fact Azazel's return (finally).

Yes he's calling himself "The Devil", but let's face it, that's what Azazel did in Austen's run, and they were, for all intents-and-purposes, in "Hell".

Aside from the the severely grotesque art from that run back in the early 2000's with (the unfortunate) Austen, ... I'm seeing a lot of similarities here.

I'll thumb through the issues later, but I don't know about you guys... If that's not Azazel... it's gotta be Mephistopholes. I find it very hard to believe Marvel would have "THE DEVIL", as in Lucifer himself, in a comic. Not these days, that's old school type writing. Especially a title like New Mutants... that feels like a Ghost Rider move to have it actually be the real Devil.

That does have an uncanny resemblance to Azazel. Not entirely sure it's him though, considering his lack of a tail.

Whoever it is, he looks smashing.

What's it supposed to be saying?

"Mommy, Daddy! Welcome back! I miss you[.] Uncle Erik played with me all day! We talked a lot, and we played tag, and he made me lunch, and . . ."
It's possible to make sense of it, but the syntax and grammar are terrible. Even some of the word choices could be better. My German husband's reaction: "Ouch." :LOL

Damn. That's a real shame, I can't believe they did that. They should've changed him visually and anticipated the confusion.


When are they going to pump Azazel back out?

Mephisto's always had red skin, and his hair varies from red to black depending on the artist. His hair's just combed properly for once. ;)

He's actually been appearing fairly frequently lately. He had all of Journey Into Mystery #627 to himself. I think he might actually be part of the semi-regular cast in JIM, but I don't know for sure.

Not sure if this counts, but it's a comic and it has Azazel.

I saw a few pages on tumblr.


It's exclusive to people who bought the blu ray version of First Class. Anyone with that will have a redeemable code to be read on Marvel's digital comic thing.

BUT I believe the pages on Tumblr were the only pages (that being around 9...making it incredibly short. To me, at least.)

The art isn't exceptionally good, in my opinion. All in all it's a bit 'meh' to me.
At least Riptide FINALLY says something though.

I don't particularily like the "origin" story here (probably because I like the background the Emma in my roleplay group has) but, take it or leave it, I suppose?
