Crazy Things About Master Pandemonium:
Master Pandemonium is one of those villains that has not shown up very much but there were some cool aspects to the character. Primarily what I liked about him is that his actor background really merged well with the Westcoast LA vibe of Westcoast Avengers. His bizarre demonic limbs also made for unique fights and aesthetics.
He is also infamous for being a villain who killed children. He basically absorbs/kills the children of Scarlet Witch and the Vision. Very few villain hit that level of lows.
Master Pandemonium News:
Martin Preston is an actor who loses a limb while driving a sport car recklessly. Martin fears his acting career is over after losing a limb so he calls forth the devil, Mephisto. Mephisto promises that he will make it so that Martin has four limbs again at the cost of his soul. Martin foolishly makes the deal. As is the case with most deals with Mephisto it is fulfilled but with terrible unforeseeable consequences. Mephisto cuts off all the remaining limbs of Martin and cuts an upside down star hole into his chest. He then replaces all of the limbs with demons. Then Mephisto fills the hole in his chest with yet more demons. This turns Martin into a kind of walking, talking demon clown car.
Martin his horrified at the demonic entity he has become but Mephisto is not about to take back the deal. He is given control of the demons in his body and takes on the name of Master Pandemonium.
Mephisto then breaks Master Pandemonium's soul up into 5 pieces and spreads the pieces out it into 5 different creatures. He uses these pieces as leverage to keep Master Pandemonium under his control.
Master Pandemonium is stalking a Western Superhero teams called the Rangers that he believes may have part of his soul. In particular he is interested in the hero Firestar. Firestar seeks membership in the West Coast Avengers and this leads Master Pandemonium into numerous battles with the supergroup.
Pandemonium and the Westcoast Avengers join forces against the cat people where he regains one part of his soul.
Pandemonium seeks out the children of Scarlet Witch and Vision and pulls them into himself. The children were not real children but constructed out of fractured souls. The act of taking the children of Scarlet Witch and Vision effectively drives Scarlet Witch mad. This is one of the major actions that lead to Scarlet Witch and Vision getting divorced.

At this point Pandemonium learns the horrible truth. The pieces of souls were never his own but that of Mephisto himself. Pandemonium had been used by a tool of Mephisto to retrieve his own soul.
