We can finally see the true colors of Mefisto in Journey into Mystery [The Book Depository] [Waterstones]. He’s been playing along, but he’s plans are totally different. He sends an anonymous note telling what Loki did, so that Loki will be in deep trouble. But we also can see what his ultimate plans is: rule them all.
It’s not normal that the Devil goes to a bar to explain his sorrows. He appears like any other salary man, only that he’s red like hell, and telling a very interesting working life that he has. The barman has no clue in how much trouble he’s in at the moment. He just asks questions, and tends to his client as if it weren’t the devil.
Mefisto wants to rule everything and be the Devil, or at least the next Satan. The thing is that you cannot use that name, otherwise, riots will happen. So, instead, he plots and corrupts as much as he can. The masterplan of having doomsday in Asgard was actually his. But, he prefers others to make his deeds. He’s clever, cunning, and has no morality whatsoever. Well, he’s not supposed to have any since he’s a demon.
So, Mefisto proceeds to explain all the deeds and how things work in the underworld to the barman. That includes council-making, invitations, and damnation. He goes as far as to explain about the other Underworld Gods (Nightmare, for example). Some pray on dreams. If humanity were to disappear, they would disappear as well. No more brains to have nightmares, no more food to consume. The same happens to other Gods and evil creatures from all types of pantheons.
While Loki was on his personal tour to fix things for Asgard, and make sure that Thor would win, Mefisto has been on another type of tour. I’d call it the Venom Tour since what he’s doing is to make things even more impossible for Loki and friends. And, what’s worse, he’s leaving annonymous notes to future Asgardian rules notifying about the not-so-good things that Loki did.
The thing is that Loki had no choice but to play tricks to make things happen for the good of Thor and Asgard. However, those same actions can be seen as bad trickery by the Asgardians. What does have Mefisto in store for Loki? Why is he so happy? Perhaps, he already knows that he’ll rule everything. By the way, the barman ends up being ink for the future contracts that Mefisto will have with people in the future. As I suspected, if your client is the Devil, better to run.
