By-the-numbers stuff, where our protagonist is evil but her foes are slightly more evil and we (sorta) cheer when she kills them. Itís fine, nothing special. 5/10

  Satana is definitely the most badass female we've seen so far. I'm enjoying this.

  3 stars for like Father, like Daughter!!!!

Credit Due - Some amazing art by Esteban Maroto!!!

What's In A Name - Dr. Darkos Edge...and they waste it on a one and done character?!

Editor's Note - It mentions the Son of Satan. I wonder when we'll get him in the order?

Extra - Also, check out near the end of this issue for a background story on how Satana came to be. Plus it has some sweet pinups of Satana in a different costume!!!

'Nuff Said - "Satan works in wondrous ways."-Satana

  I may go straight to Hell, but those pin-ups of my Mom are pretty hot!

  Gorgeous art from Esteban Maroto. Satana is the best female character yet!

  Satana was a beauty last issue as drawn by John Romita, but she's a downright knock-out gorgeous this issue by Esteban Maroto. She's every man's dream: using sex to kill her victims!

@Locust75: The Son of Satan's debut had already been published in Marvel Spotlight when this one came out, but I'm sure you've already read that! Order Alert for everyone else: Daimon's first appearance is roughly 30 issues away.

3 stars. I like where this is going.
