Hellverine was an unnamed Demon who took over Wolverine's body when his soul was dragged to Hell by a group of demons. The demon was summoned by the Red Right Hand who had a mysterious vendetta to make Wolverine's life a living Hell in every way imaginable, including killing and torturing his friends and offspring, and current girlfriend Melita Garner.
This demon, in control of Wolverine's body, was assigned to take out those closest to him. Hellverine's first target was John Wraith who was working as a pastor and had just met with Wolverine. He attacked Wraith by covering his body with various bugs and insects and then stabed him through the chest. Hellverine then traveled to Wraith's church and spited some kind of acid, which he ignites and burn down the church with all the prayers inside.
Hellverine next traveled to Japan to attack Logan's former lover Yukio and adopted daughter, Amiko Kobayashi. Melita called Yukio who replied just before Hellverine killed her. The attack was brutal but Amiko Kobayashi was able to escape. Hellverine undeterred from the failure to murder Amiko, he decided to travel to Utopia, wearing Wolverine's uniform, and sneaked onto the island.
At some point while on Utopia and before his presence was revealed, he encountered Logan's clone, X-23, who recognized that something wasn't right with Logan and avoided him. Hellverine continued to pursue her and haunt her dreams, attempting to tempt or coerce her into serving him as "leader of his armies" by claiming she lacked a soul and expressing pride in her skills as a killer. He failed, however, when Laura refused and defeated him with the aid of what appears to be the Enigma Force, throwing off his influence for good.
Back on Utopia, while searching his room he was interrupted by Kitty Pryde. He attacked her, but she was rescued by Colossus who knocked him to the ground and tried to reason him, unaware of the demons possession and thinking that Logan was in his berserk state.
Hellverine kept fighting the X-Men consisting of Shadowcat, Colossus, Archangel, Iceman all get hurt by Hellverine. Before Hellverine could kill Colossus, he was captured by Mystique and Ghost Riders, but not before he injuried Mystique and decapitated one of the Ghost Riders. Suddenly thrown into the Grace Cathedral Church by a Ghost Rider, Daimon Hellstrom performed a ritual to try and bring Logan's soul back from Hell.
Daimon Hellstrom could tell something had happened to Logan, but yet his body was still in turmoil. And it seemed one of the Ghost Riders was no longer beheaded. Now outside the church, Logan's body ran, but the X-Men Cyclops, Magneto, Emma Frost and Namor, were waiting, and Cyclops stated "This ends now!"
The demon was not exorcised and remained in Wolverine's body, the two beings started battling for control over the body. X-men were worried that if Wolverine was allowed to live more people would be hurt, but Emma Frost and Melita Garner protested, stating that he was necessary for Wolverine to be given the chance to battle the demon. A team of X-Men and friends, all female was sent by Emma in Logan's mind to assist him.
Cyclops and the team try to restrain his body to stop the demon from hurting anyone else but it was useless. In Wolverine mind, Nightcrawler appears with Jean Grey who useD her powers to force the creature back into Hell.
