Hot on the heels of yesterday's Moonstone review comes the Satana Hellstrom, aka Judith Camber, aka daughter of Satan and sister of Daimon Hellstrom. As I mentioned in yesterday's Moonstone review, I hardly know anything about the Thunderbolts beyond their similarities to the Suicide Squad. What I really like about this character however is her resemblance to another character of whom I am very fond: Lilith the Daughter of Dracula. Lilith was a staple of 1970's pulp horror comics like Tomb of Dracula, Vampire Tales, and Legion of Night. I don't know when Satana started looking like Lilith, but it's kind of uncanny. Last time I took note of Ms. Hellstrom, she had reddish hair that was formed into a devil horns and she kind of dressed like a red leather satanic biker chick. I'll post an image of Lilith below so you don't think I'm crazy. This figure also uses the new Moonstone buck which I am in love with. Satana isn't as flawless as Moonstone though because unfortunately her signature cape gets in the way of her hair. That's a small gripe though for such a gorgeous toy. Let's check her out below!
The Thunderbolts SDCC Exclusive boxset included 5 members of the team in a box designed to resemble Thunderbolts Tower.
Included are Satana, Ghost, Crossbones, Luke Cage, and Moonstone.
As I mentioned before, her cape really hinders her neck articulation, usually causing her to gaze upwards by default.
The back of her cape actually has a very interesting texture that looks like worn leather. Very cool detail.
These face sculpts are so perfect it's killing me.
Her spell-casting hands are a nice touch.
Here are some images of her from the comics.
Here is how I mostly remember Satana looking
And finally, here is her doppelganger, Lilith.
Her cape is easily removable making her into a rather generic looking catsuited lady. She would make for ideal (but extremely overpriced) custom fodder.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
