- Flattery will get you nowhere -- the King of Hell doesn't share power, and if I were you, I'd stick my ass in a bucket now... because when my father hears what you just said, he's going to burn it.

Satana Hellstrom was born a couple years after her brother Daimon. When she was still a child, her mother Victoria Hellstrom discovered her husband and Satana performing a black magic ritual in the basement of their New England mansion. Victoria went mad upon witnessing her husband's transformation and died soon afterwards. Daimon was placed in an orphanage, and Satana was taken to "Hell" to be trained in the use of her demonic powers.
Satana was possessed by a powerful demon called the Basilisk. Satana remained in full control of her mind and body, however, and the Basilisk had to do her bidding when she released it from her body. However, she became aware that the more she used the Basilisk to serve her ends, the stronger it grew, and that it might one day turn against her.
Satana was sent to Earth, where she continually needed to feed on souls. She often posed as a prostitute to meet her victims.
Her father continued to test her, Satana eventually refusing to serve him. She tried her best to fight other evil forces as well as learn about humans.
At one point, the sorcerer Brian Abelard created an illusion that she was the woman Judith Chambers in a plot to take control of the Basilisk. He and the Camarilla of the N'Garai managed to separate Satana and the Basilisk, but Satana called upon the demon's help before they could sacrifice her, killing Abelard and the Camarilla, as well as remerging the demon with her.
Satana learned Doctor Strange had used Shartra's Book of the Damned. His physical body was cursed to be a werewolf, while his astral self was imprisoned by demons. Knowing he was of great importance, Satana freed him and died, as did the Basilisk. 
Years later, Satana was resurrected.
Travelling to the Past
She escaped together with several other inmates who were members of the Thunderbolts. Due to a failure of the teleportation technology of their tower (caused by Man-Thing), the tower began to move in time as well as in space. They ended up in World War II teaming up with the Invaders to battle the Nazis They next end up in Victorian London. They went even further back in time ending up in King Arthur's court in Camelot.
They eventually bounced back to the time of the original Zemo lead Thunderbolts team. After the Fixer killed his younger self this began to cause a collapse in reality which forced Fixer to assume his younger self's place. She returned to the future with the rest of the Thunderbolts.

Satana is a succubus, a particular type of demon blessed with great beauty and magical powers. Satana's soul was formerly bonded to an arch-demon and agent of destruction know as "The Basilisk." It was a very powerful demon, considered one of the deadliest, and she could release him from inside her and then return it to her.
- Life-Force Absorption: As a succubus, she feeds on the souls of people. Her kiss kills her victims, causing them to shrivel and release the soul in a butterfly like form. Satana would then capture the butterfly to feed on it. When she takes people's souls, she gains power from them and it increases her magical powers. Apparently it does not work on psionic vampires.
- Superhuman Strength: Satana is much stronger than an ordinary human, though the upper limits of her strength are unknown.
- Superhuman Durability: Satana is more resistant to damage than an ordinary human, though the upper limits of her durability are unknown.
- Flight: Satana is able to levitate herself in order to fly.
- Astral Projection: Satana can release her astral form from her body, instantaneously and at will.
- Hellfire Manipulation: Satana possesses the ability to generate, control, and project hellfire (also known as soulfire) at will. Hellfire is an ethereal and supernatural flame that burns the soul of a person and can be used to burn their physical body.
- Mind Control: Satana is able to enter and control the minds of others.
- Magic: Satana has shown that she possesses potent mystical power.
Satana has some knowledge of magic.
