H is for Hellstorm and Hellcat
Marvel A - Z week 8: Hellstorm and Hellcat
Click on the images for larger versions.
Daimon Hellstrom - the Son of Satan, first appeared way back in the first issue of the original Ghost Rider series and has been dotted around the Marvel Universe since. He's had a couple of short lived series but was a regular in the Defenders for a while and is currently with the New Avengers. Probably the closest marvel has to a John Constantine type character.
Hellcat has appeared mostly in the Avengers and Defenders titles, although her civilian identity of Patsy Walker has been kicking about in comics since 1944 where she starred in her own teen romance comics. She married Hellstorm after meeting up in the Defenders, but his demonic side eventually drove her insane and she committed suicide. Luckily she lives in comics world and has recovered from her death fine - in fact she's pretty fit for a resurrected bird that's been kicking about since the 40's.
