Reprints Ghost Rider #1-2, Marvel Spotlight #12-24, Son of Satan #1-8, Marvel Two-In-One #14, Marvel Two-In-One #14, Vampire Tales #2-3, Haunt of Horror #2, #4-5, Marvel Premiere #27, Marvel Preview #7, and Marvel Team-Up #80-81. The Son of Satan fights his hellish origins while his sister Satana embraces them. The Son of Satan stories are very underdeveloped. Marvel seems to have wanted to create a character with a Satanic background in the big horror boom of the 1970's, but they had no where to go with it since they were writing for an all-audience comic. Satana is underdeveloped but mostly because it feels like her series never got wings. It was written for Marvel's magazine lines and kind of a rip-off of Vampira, so it could be darker than the Son of Satan, but the magazines folded and Satana was killed before her character could develop.
