    I'm confused
    Not sure this question belongs in this thread, but what the hey. Blackheart is Mephisto’s direct spawn. Hellstrom (and maybe Satana) is the result of various demons merging their energies to create a true “Son of Satan,” though Marduk Kurios is his direct father.

    "Though Marduk Kurios is Daimon's direct father, Satan has been shown to be made up of aspects of Asmodeus, Lucifer, Mephisto, Satannish, Thog, and others, indicating that the Hell-lords merged their energies to father a true "Son of Satan." Reliable sources have named Beelzeboul, Kurios, Lucifer, and Mephisto as Daimon's father, further supporting this conclusion.“

    wait, is this not a MArvel question? I moved it to this thread because I thought Spirits of vengeance is that Marvel story with Ghostrider and some other characters.

    I have a minor gripe with the Daredevil Waid Vol. 2 Omnibus. I really was hoping they would put issues #0.1 and #1.50 in chronological order amongst the regular Daredevil issues but it seems they've put them in publishing order. Therefore, after issues #1-5 of Daredevil (Vol. 4) where Matt and Kirsten have settled into living in San Francisco, they give us #0.1 in which they are taking a plane (and later a car) from NY to SF to start anew. It's jarring to say the least. Anyone picking this run up for the first time will be thinking what the heck! Ideally, this should have been placed between Daredevil #36 (Vol. 3) and Daredevil #1 (Vol. 4)

    Also, they decided to lump in #1.50 directly afterwards #0.1 This is an anniversary issue with future what if DD stories but the main story is linked somewhat to the Waid run. This would have fitted much better at the very end. Ah well, it looks like they threw all the issues together with no thought whatsoever. Jennifer Grunwald is no Cory Seidlmeier or Jeph York.

    I'm waiting for a massive price drop on that. I love the run, but it is still fresh in the mind.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    I've been striking out lately with my Marvel omnibus blind buys.

    Carnage was pretty much unreadable although the latter part of it was somewhat tolerable since it was pretty much an "Alien(s)" rip off and, man, I love that franchise.

    Then there's Wolverine: The Return of Weapon X (or whatever), which is a notch below average. One intriguing note about it, however, is that some of the Wolverine issues were published before the Jenkins' penned "Origin" mini was released, so if you were reading the floppies at the time, there was nice foreshadowing and insight into what was coming. For example, issue # 166.

    At this point, I'm cutting back on my Marvel blind buys. I'm still buying Marvel omnibus collections (Hickman's vol. 2 is on the list but I know what to expect), but I think if I'm on the fence about a book, I'm just going to stay away. I expect Carnage to hit the bargain bin at some point.

    Ok Thanks. But there is more confusion now because in Spirits of Vengeance you see one of Marduk’s minions call him Marduk Kurios, then when he starts explaining to Hellstrom and Satanna about the covenant that was agreed upon between Heaven and Hell, he says he used to go by the name Lucifer then. Which would mean Lucifer changed his name to Marduk.

    Pardon my ignorance but if I have all X-Men omnibi and OHCs to date, is there any reason I would need to purchase the upcoming Dark Phoenix omnibus? Thanks in advance!

    Do you get classics? Maybe just the wedding one. The story is in the middle of the first two Uncanny volumes right?

    To my knowledge you should be good with Uxm Omnis 1 and 2 anyways. The list says that the DP Omni has also some classic issues which are available in the Classic Omni so if you also have this one there is no reason at all to buy the highlight book.

    Hell no. Look for it stacked up in bargain bins, too.
