Strange and Dr. Doom Mephisto is a perennial villain in the Marvel Universe, and is responsible for a number of evil acts, including capturing and holding the soul of Cynthia Von Doom — the mother of Doctor Doom — until Doctor Strange and Doom free her to ascend to heaven. Mephisto claims to have been created, along with many other demons, by the supreme being whose suicide resulted in the creation of the Marvel Universe as well as the Infinity Gems.
He also claimed that his total evil nature is because the supreme being did not choose to make him good, as that being had no concept of it. Mephisto acted as servant of the mad Titan Thanos during the War of the Gems, seeking to attain that power for himself.
