Blackheart is the son of Mephisto. He is a demonic creation, born of man's hate and fear. His father groomed him to become his second-in-command, and Blackheart toiled to gather souls for Mephisto. In his travels, he gained a sense of independence, and began to think that he should be ruling in his father's place. He staged an unsuccessful coup, and was banished from Mephisto's domain for his treason. As further punishment, his sanity was taken away. Now, banished on Earth with his powers intact but his mind shattered, Blackheart looks to gather enough souls to overpower Mephisto and take control of his realm.

Born of man's hate and fear?  Sounds like religion to me... a hidden message from Marvel? Maybe. Either way, I love me some Blackheart... this badass evil demon just puts a smile on my face every time I see him. So what would this world be without evil? I'll tell you... BORING!

Blackheart's fighting game debut was far from boring. He debuted in Marvel Super Heroes as one hell of a badass fighting game villain... at the time, he also appeared as one of the largest 2D sprites ever seen in a game! His massive build and awesome animations are still eye-candy. Even though his sprite was reused in the later MSH VS SF and MVC2, he was just as awesome in those games (especially Capcom's artwork of Blackheart). He no doubt gained a boost in the popularity polls in the MVC2 days since he ended up being such a powerful character in that game. ;) Part of the reason Blackheart was so effective in the game, is actually because his fighting style and moveset is so innovative... definitely one of the coolest 2D fighting game characters of all time. Heh, I wish I could summon cute little hell demons to attack my enemies. >:)
