Powers/Abilities: As the descendant of Satan, it's likely Hellstorm possesses various superhuman abilities though he has yet to display any. Damon can comfortably survive in the harsh conditions of Ethereal Realm, with its lakes of fire. He can sustain himself on demon blood and flesh. Damon has advanced knowledge of the arcane. Hellstorm wields a mystical, highly durable trident of unknown composition that has certain magical properties and is especially effective on supernatural or demonic entities.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Ghost Riders#1 (fb) - BTS) - Hellstorm and his sister Satana spent many lazy Summers in their father's home dimension of Ethereal Realm, idling down by the lake of fire, impaling lesser demons, eating hearts and drinking blood.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Ghost Riders#1 (fb) - BTS) - Hellstorm became convinced Satan had fathered another human son. He eventually concluded it had to be Johnny Blaze. He sent him a message to meet at Beelzebub's in New York City.
(Marvel Mangaverse: Ghost Riders#1) - Blaze and Hellstorm met up at Beelzebub, though Damon had trouble convincing his half-brother of his bizarre story. Johnny did admit to having a birthmark in the shape of a pentagram. Hellstorm went on to explain their origin would invoke certain strange happenings. Just then, they were startled by the arrival of the gigantic Hulk who had been terrorizing the city. They watched as he killed two nearby people by stepping on them. Moments later, another strange thing happened: Hellstorm's sister the giant demoness Satana, sent her demon armies to Earth to kill Damon. Feeling this was the ideal time to show Blaze they were related, Damon used his magic trident, transforming Johnny into the Ghost Rider. Now, the two alleged brothers tore into the demon forces together until they faced the giant demoness herself. Unimpressed, Satana destroyed Ghost Rider's motorcycle with one of her fireballs and stomped on Hellstorm with her feet. Stuck between her toes Hellstorm apologized for getting Johnny involved until he finally decided to help Hellstorm. Figuring he had no way of stopping the giantess he threw Hellstorm's trident at the much larger Hulk. The towering creature made his way over to Satana who punched him in the face. Unfazed by her strength, Hulk beat Satana to the ground and finally threw her back in the portal she came from. Although Johnny Blaze wasn't quite prepared to accept his true heritage he did ask Hellstorm to go get a coffee together.

Due to the Asian specific nature of the Mangaverse reality, it goes without saying that while characters might look similar to their 616 counterparts, they most likely will have distinctly different names, codenames or powers. Therefore we will only list the names when they have been used in the comics.
In the Marvel Mangaverse the Ethereal Realm was the place where all gods, demons and monsters originated from. Just like their 616 counterparts, Satana and Hellstorm's father is Satan, not Mephisto, who in the Mangaverse was the ruler of one of the twelve original livebearing world's of the reality as revealed in Marvel Mangaverse#1 by Uatu the Watcher.
