Is Mephisto The Big Bad Of Avengers, Heroes Reborn And WandaVision?

Is this Mephisto time? With Kevin Feige as the Chief Creative Officer of all of Marvel Entertainment now – movies, TV and comics, we've been wondering how that may exhibit itself. This is mindless speculation, of course, unsourced, just joining the dots at random and trying to avoid any pictures of genitalia. or at least trying not to make me look a complete one.

Bleeding Cool has noted that the recent Avengers comic books have seen Mephisto, a big name Devil of the Marvel Universe, revealed as the Big Bad of all things, from four billion years ago to its far-flung future. During which he was directly responsible for the Avengers forming at certain times in history. As if its all part of his big plan.

Simultaneously, WandaVision is telling a story that seems very familiar from the comic books, with the Scarlet Witch and Vision comics from the eighties specifically referenced, in which Scarlet Witch is made pregnant by the Vision, has twins, before they are revealed to be all part of Mephisto's plotting. And as the first episode told us, "the Devil is in the details." Here's a fancut of that.

Is this all a coincidence? Possibly. But could Marvel be planning to make Mephisto a bigger deal in all media available to it right now? Also possibly.
