Early Life

Captain Joost Van Straaten was the captain of a ship that lusted only for treasure and was consumed with greed. He had no compassion for life, only wealth. He forced his crew into a storm to find treasure and the ship was overtaken by the raging sea. He and all his crew perished. When they met with Death, his crew's souls were allowed to rest but he was not. He was named the Flying Dutchman and sent to Limbo.[1]

Mephisto

The Flying Dutchman's Ghost was summoned by Mephisto and promised freedom from limbo if he destroyed the Silver Surfer. Warped by Mephisto's dark magic, the Flying Dutchman's Ghost was now stronger and had better weaponry, after pursuing the Silver Surfer through the city, they eventually met and battled, the Silver Surfer prevailed due to the Flying Dutchman's Ghost betraying Mephisto, The Silver Surfer shed a tear for the tortured and trapped soul of the Flying Dutchman's Ghost, and in turn he was released from the bondage of Limbo.[1]
