Notes

Demon of the Week

  • Asmoth: Also known as Asmodius or Asteroth, Asmoth was worshipped in pagan times. A demon above all other demons, he may have been the source of the Christian idea of the Devil. Asmoth devours his victims alive. Over time, he also inspired human followers, who filed down their teeth to a point so they could follow the example of their master. A few years ago, Asmoth killed Strange's fiancée Helen and marked Strange with a scar.
