So, Who Would Win?: Hellboy VS. Mephisto


Well, it's Thursday and you know what that means?
Why another existing edition of So Who Would Win?, where I pit two characters or two teams, against each other in a dream match version of Mortal Kombat to see who'd be the last man or team standing at the end of it all.

As you know, all this month I've been honoring Halloween with Horror-themed editions of So, Who Would Win?

So far I've pitted Man-Thing against Marvel's Frankenstein and Ghost Rider against Horror movie icon Michael Myers.

This week I'm pitting Mike Mignola's Hellboy against Marvel's answer to Satan himself, Mephisto.

Hey, this one makes more sense than it should considering that Hellboy's an actual demon, who's daddy may or may not be Satan himself. I imagine if Mephisto and Hellboy ever did cross paths, Mephisto would have more fun than a comic would permit in tormenting Hellboy just based off that fact alone.

Let's compare those stats though, shall we?



AbilitiesSuperhuman physical attributes and intelligence

Alright, so right out the gate, despite Hellboy's vast abilities and powers, Mephisto still ridiculously out-powers him, no question about it.


Mephisto is bound by certain rules, no matter how powerful he is, and he can't break those rules and limitations. But he can use his cunning to dance around them.

Hellboy, being skilled in all things arcane and magical after having a lifetime's worth of experience in that area, would be able to deal with all of Mephisto's lies and tricks, especially since he sort of has the inside track on demons, devils, and their methodology. In other words, Hellboy wouldn't be so easily fooled by Mephisto's tricks.

But that doesn't mean Mephisto won't try, or even gain some foothold in the situation by using Hellboy's past and parentage against him.





Who wins and why?

Alright folks, that's all for this week.
Have a good weekend....
