What the Heck Was Mephisto's Interest in Wonder Man's Mother?

In the miniseries, Avengers Two: Wonder Man and Beast (by Roger Stern, Mark Bagley and Greg Adams), we learn that Mephisto faked all of those memories just to mess with Wonder Man. He didn't realize that his mother was actually alive until after he was out of Mephisto's realm...

The funniest aspect of it all is that they never actually come up with a reason as to WHY Mephisto would have done all of that. Just sort of a general, "Eh, he's Mephisto. He's a bit of a jerk."
