First Appearance: Marvel Super-Heroes III#1 (May 1990)
Powers/Abilities: Zreate’th’s full powers are unknown. He has shown the ability to reside within a human body and use it as a gateway to his own dimension, drawing forth lesser demons. He also has a level of super-strength, though the extent is unknown. He has been shown lifting two humans easily, but has trouble matching strength with Hellcat.
History: (Marvel Super-Heroes III#1 - BTS) - A cult of devil-worshipers used the virgin Hilary Garret in a sacrifice to raise a demon. They were successful, and either Zreate’th or "Tuskanini" emerged, killing the cult members, and giving chase to Garret.
(Marvel Super-Heroes III#1) - Hellcat, along with a local police officer, Lt. Collins, followed the leads of the earth-bound demon to a diner, where "Tuskanini" had chased Garret into. Hellcat quickly killed the demon, and attempted to take Garret into her custody, realizing she was the gateway for the demons. Before she could, another demon was produced that she easily handled. However, by that point, Zreate’th had materialized using Garret’s body, threatening the diner patrons. Hellcat fought with the demon before Garret regained control of herself. Realizing that there was no alternative to what was residing inside of her, Garret grabbed a gun and committed suicide, sending Zreate’th back to his realm.

According to Hellcat, Zreate’th has an entire chapter devoted to him in St. Brendan’s Scrolls of Pandimensional Warlords.
"Tuskanini" (the big green Hulk-like demon) is called that by Hellcat, though his true name is unknown.
