Thunderbolts (2006) #155

Overall, Walker takes an interesting tack when depicting Satana. Despite the retention of her skin-bearing costume, she doesn't exude sex appeal. Rather, Walker creates the atmosphere of somebody playing at being sexy. It's almost like she's a kid dressing up in her mother's clothing. She just seems out of place in the whole femme fatale routine, and that's fitting given that through the entire tale, she never wanted to kill or even marginally hurt Stephen and Luke. She just wanted to be left alone and deter them from finding her. Furthermore, this flourish suits her longer history. Satana always seemed uncomfortable with her status and just wanted to be good.
