Genius Covers: Mephisto vs. The Fantastic Four #1

Today we have Part 1 of a four-part miniseries featuring Mephisto battling the Fantastic Four which was published in April 1987. Now I've never seen or read the other three parts of this series so I'm not sure how things turn out but Part 1 is a doozy! We learn that Reed Richards signed his soul away to Mephisto in exchange for his brilliant mind [with a little cameo of Dr. Doom] and now Mephisto is back to get Reed's son, Franklin, so get his soul as well.
