Cover Theme Game for 11/2

Last week was all covers that featured characters who debuted in cartoons and then appeared in comics. chasdom guessed it first (and he guessed the theme last week first, as well).

Here's this week's covers!!

Remember, it's got to be something not obvious, like "All of them are superheroes. All of them have a pricetag on the cover. All of them have titles!"

All three have starburst blurbs on the cover: "99 cents," "A Man-God Unchained!" and "In a mind gone mad, Daimon Hellstrom battles... himself!"

I'm guessing a bit, because I don't recognize the lady in yellow with the deformed spine in the first picture (and the Black Widow, temporarily under the same affliction, I guess, doesn't qualify.)

But maybe each cover features characters (Hercules, Son of Satan) who are children of deities?

I had thought of that...the other woman is Crystal of the Inhumans, but I'm not totally sure what the Inhumans are as far as deities go.

Crystal was in the Avengers at some point? (I know, silly question, *everybody* was in the Avengers at some point....)

Hmm, her bio here doesn't seem to support my theory:
http://www.marveldirectory.com/individuals/c/crystal.htm

"Crystal was the second child born to the Inhuman nutritionists Quelin and Ambur."

Huh, there's something I didn't know. You'd think you'd hear her opinions on Atkins more often....

But well-connected nutritionists: "Her father Quelin was the brother of Rynda, wife of Agon, king of the Inhumans, and as such she was considered part of the Royal Family of Attilan."

I suppose my theory works for "children of royalty" too - Crystal is an Attilan royal, Hercules is son of "king of the gods" Zeus, and Satan is the king of Hell. But for the latter two, "royalty" isn't the description that leaps to mind.

Each has a non-mutant member of the Champions of Los Angeles (Black Widdow, Hercules, Ghost Rider).
