Opened tabs I did, and only one (villains wiki) shown me the famous version's feats. To my surprise, of course, this was not the original version of Mephistopheles. The original was a minor or lesser evil spirit, and the following version after that was the same, but slightly different focus on which sin propagated. The famous version we all come to know, is more powerful than it's previous forms. Immortality (Stated to be older than the universe) Dark Magic (Stated to be part of duality's half - source of all evil) Shape Shifting (Stated to transform to a poodle) Controlling Elements (Stated to repeatedly attempt to destroy the world, but left with only fire) Mind Control (Stated to almost made people eat each other with hallucinations) Reality Warping (Vague) I'll get to the point, what did Controlling Elements part meant? I did not read the story, because... reasons. If you happen to read it or know why, please tell if you remember. It seemed that Mephistopheles was capable of controlling all elements, but after repeated failures, and probably mysterious reasons, he had only fire left to control, except for space-time control and darkness as magic (not element). And how strong was Mephistopheles compared to other beings from Hell and Heaven?
