Marvel spotlight 12 13 the son of satan longbox of the damned
The series began with a Red Wolf story. Several Marvel characters that were later given their own individual titles first appeared in the Marvel Spotlight series, including Werewolf by Night, Ghost Rider, the Son of Satan, and Spider-Woman.
The second series began with several Captain Marvel stories before featuring other characters. Tako Shamara first appeared in Marvel Spotlight vol. 2 #5 (March 1980), and was created by Marv Wolfman and Steve Ditko. In his first appearance the character battled a huge dragon from the past called a Wani, a monster that destroyed his ancestors' villages in 1582. The creature that Tako battled was intended to be Godzilla but since Marvel no longer had the rights to the character, which lapsed the previous year, the creature was modified to a dragon called The Wani.
In December 2005, the Marvel Spotlight title was used for a series of comic book-sized magazines, usually featuring profiles of and interviews with Marvel creators (one writer and one artist each issue), or spotlighting special Marvel projects such as Stephen King's The Dark Tower.
