Yawn: So Far, Marvel & Hulu’s ‘Helstrom’ Looks “Boring as Hell”


Hulu has just released a gallery of the first Helstrom official photos.



Created by Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich, Daimon Hellstrom (yes, the comics were a little more on the nose with their spelling) first debuted in the pages of Ghost Rider #1 in 1973 before being spun off into his own series, and later became a member of the Defenders, while Daimon’s sister Satana (created by Thomas and artist John Romita Sr.) first appeared in Vampire Tales #2, going on to team up with the Thunderbolts and often crossing paths with Doctor Strange. As her name suggests, Satana is a little more comfortable with her demonic heritage than her brother.


The new series centers around Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon), the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer, as they track down the worst of humanity – each with their own unique skills (and familial baggage).


Helstrom will reveal more during the show’s Comic-Con@Home panel next Friday, July 24 at 3 pm (pt) and is slated to come to Hulu this October.




After seeing these images, do you think it looks exciting and compelling? I’m hoping for a killer trailer that knocks my socks off. I was at least hoping it would be up to the level of Legion on FX. We’ll see.
