History: (Marvel Team-Up I#32) - Dryminextes sought to curry favor from his master Satan by destroying his rebellious son, Daimon. He possessed Wyatt Wingfoot, of the Keewazi tribe of Native Americans. Wyatt's father, Silent Fox, contacted Johnny Storm, who was friends of Wyatt, and requested his assistance in the matter. Storm sought the aid of Daimon Hellstrom, noted demonologist to help exorcise the demon.
As the heroes arrived in the Oklahoma reservation, Dryminextes forced Wyatt to attack and attempt to strangle Storm, who was reluctant to use his flame powers against his friend. Daimon subdued Wyatt/Dryminextes with a blast of hellfire, but Daimon and Johnny soon found themselves under attack by the Keewazi, who were similarly possessed (by Dryminextes or unnamed allies). As Daimon struggled, his "darksoul" (evil, demon-half) climbed to the surface, causing him to use potentially lethal force against the Keewazi. Johnny saw this and flew down to stop him. Daimon, now out of control, attacked Johnny subduing and choking him (which was just as Dryminextes had planned it). However, as Daimon was choking Johnny, he came back to senses, and forced his darksoul back down inside himself. Johnny blinded the Keewazi with a burst of bright flame, giving Daimon the change to forcibly exorcise the demon. Daimon either destroyed the demon, or banished it back to Hell.

Comments: Created by Gerry Conway and Sal Buscema.
