Satana first appeared in Vampire Tales #2 (cover-dated Oct. 1973),
she was created by Roy Thomas and John Romita

she appeared as a regular character in Thunderbolts since issue #155,
and remained with the team when the title transitioned
into Dark Avengers beginning with issue #175 (2011)

Satana and Daimon were born in the fictional town of Greentown, Massachusetts,
they were the half-human children of Satan
(their father was later retconned into a demon
named Marduk Kurios who posed as Satan),
Satana and her brother were groomed by their father to be evil,
but Daimon rejected these teachings, while Satana embraced them

Satana is a half-demon/half-human hybrid, and a succubus;
n.b. a succubus is a Lilin-demon in female form,
or supernatural entity in folklore (traced back to medieval legend)
that appears in dreams and takes the form of a woman in order to seduce men,
usually through sexual activity,
the male counterpart is the incubus,
religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus
may result in the deterioration of health or mental state or even in death

Satana has some innate mystical abilities inherited from her father
as well as some that her father granted to her,
as a succubus, she is able to extract and feed
upon the psychic energy of human male souls
to increase her abilities and magical power;
for a time, Satana had to extract and feed upon the psychic energy
of human souls periodically to survive,
she has the ability to manipulate magical forces for a variety of effects,
including inter-dimensional teleportation, levitation
and the projection of concussive bolts of eldritch energy
in the form of "soulfire" or hellfire,
she also had a limited ability to hypnotize her victims
and control their minds psionically
(Psionics is the study of paranormal phenomena
in relation to the application of electronics,
the term comes from psi (psyche) and the -onics from electronics (machine)
if she touches an object used to kill someone (like a knife or sword),
she can absorb its "blood energy" to become stronger
in proportion to the souls the weapon has taken
she also has superhuman strength, for a time,
she had the ability to contain the Basilisk,
a powerful demon, within her spirit and to release it
to do her bidding and then return within herself,
Satana also trained in the mystic arts and learned
how to cast spells and perform witchcraft,
she was trained by her father "Satan" in the use of her demonic powers
