Marvelís Helstrom coming to Hulu

The Runaways are getting a hot-headed Marvel friend over on Hulu.Hulu ó which is 60-percent owned by Disney ó announced on Wednesday that it is expanding its partnership with Marvel Television by ordering two new series: Marvelís Ghost Rider and Marvelís Helstrom, both on track for 2020 premieres.

Helstrom, which appears to be a bit of a loosey-goosey adaptation, focuses on Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the son and daughter of ďa mysterious and powerful serial killer.Ē The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down ďthe terrorizing worst of humanity.Ē (In the comic books, Daimon was no less than the Son of Satan.) Marvelís Helstrom is executive-produced by Paul Zbyszewski (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), who will serve as showrunner, and Marvelís Jeph Loeb.

Re: Marvelís Helstrom coming to Hulu

I was wondering if we were talking about the "Son of Satan", which I used to read back in the '70s. For a time the book was written by the late, sometime great Steve Gerber (often remembered as the creator of "Howard the Duck") and he set his run in his home town and mine, St. Louis, Mo. It was one of those rare times when I would read a comic and know where some of his specific locations were ( for example, "4000 Holes in Forest Park").

He also married Patsy Walker/Hellcat, the one from Jessica Jones and Defenders. Though I highly doubt they bring up that connection.

Re: Marvelís Helstrom coming to Hulu

They've gotta be building to that, and the reveal of their heritage. Otherwise why even use these characters at all if you're squeamish about the h-e-doublehockeysticks part?

Re: Marvelís Helstrom coming to Hulu

That reminds me, I wonder if we'll ever get Mephisto in the MCU?
