                            Hulu's 'Helstrom' will most likely be an origin story and may feature a crossover with 'Ghost Rider'

With 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' set to conclude after one more season, Marvel TV has two new shows up its sleeve that will introduce the world to heroes with supernatural powers. Hulu has ordered a batch of Marvel shows that include 'Ghost Rider' and 'Helstrom'. Gabriel Luna will reprise his role as the 'Ghost Rider' after his appearances on 'AoS'.

The series description reads: "A quintessential antihero, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. Reyes lives on the Texas/Mexico border and when he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles to control the power he wields." 

However, he isn't the only supernatural hero. Daimon Helstrom, aka the Son of Satan, too will make an entry into the MCU next year. While details of the plot remain a close-guarded secret, we can assume at this point that the series will trace the origins of Helstrom.

According to the comics, he was born in a fictional town of Greentown and is the son of satan and a mortal woman, Victoria Wingate. Helstrom and his sister, Satana, were trained by their father in magic. The duo tap into the power granted to them by their dark heritage. While Satana embraced her roots, Helstrom leaned more towards his human side. He later set himself up as an occult investigator battling the forces of evil.

In his first comic appearance, he battled his father, Satan and Witch-Woman alongside Ghost Rider. He was also seen as part of the Defenders. When not slaying evil, Helstrom worked at the University of the District of Columbia Parapsychology Department.

Helstrom's official synopsis reads: "Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity, each with their attitude and skills."

Since the premise talks of a complicated dynamic between Satana and Helstrm, we can safely assume that the plotline may probably stick to what was in the comics. 

Since the comics also established that he and Ghost Rider were allies, we can also expect a crossover episode when both the series air. While 'Defenders' isn't there anymore, the creators may use its blueprint and introduce us to a bunch of supernormal heroes to form the 'Spirits of Vengeance'.  

When the two shows were first announced, Marvel themselves declared on their site that "The Spirits of Vengeance are coming!" and earlier this month, they registered production-based trademarks for Glyph, Helstrom, Ghost Rider, and Spirits of Vengeance.

'Ghost Rider' and 'Helstrom' will arrive on Hulu sometime in 2020. Paul Zbyszewski will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
