Marvel Spotlight Featuring Son of Satan #23-24 (1975)

Steve Gerber leaves the solo Satan title, and goes out with an issue that has a higher body count than I think any other Marvel book thus far.  Son of Satan burns at least 20 Nihilist followers alive in this issue before killing Darklyte, their leader.  This is a hardcore way to kill people, and yet nobody seems to have a problem with it.

Creators: Steve Gerber and Mike Friedrich (writers), Sal Buscema (pencils)
Grade: C+
