In Dr.Strange 79, Strange and Morganna are attacked by one of Urthona's servants. Strange is injured and his astral form takes over Morganna's body. But Morganna's thoughts are distracting him and Morganna's injured. So Strange performs black magic and says "Take him, Satannish,he's yours." and the servant is consumed in flames (and presumably taken to Satannish's hell).

The people at the Marvel Appendix site seem to think it's in continuity. Here's Mephisto's profile:

Scroll down about two thirds of the way to Marvel Holiday Special 1994. It DOES sound moronic.
