First appearance: Unknown
Lucifer possesses vast supernatural power, which is apparently inherent within him.
Superhuman Strength: Lucifer possesses some degree of superhuman strength. He is capable of using his magical powers to augment his strength, but to an unknown degree.
Superhuman Speed: Lucifer is capable of running and moving at speeds greater than even the finest human athlete.
Superhuman Stamina: The various mystical energies flowing through Lucifer's body augments his musculature so that it generates virtually no fatigue toxins during physical activity. As a result, Lucifer possesses almost limitless superhuman stamina.
Superhuman Durability: The tissues of Lucifers's body, while similar in appearance to a human's, are considerably tougher and more resistant to injury than the tissues of a human being. Lucifer's body is virtually invulnerable to conventional injury. He is capable of withstanding great impact forces, high caliber bullets, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, and powerful energy blasts without sustaining injury.
Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite his superhuman durability, it is possible to injure Lucifer. However, his unique physiology and mystical energies enable him to rapidly recover from almost any form of injury. He is capable of regenerating almost any damaged or destroyed tissue, even missing limbs.
Immortality: As a demon, Lucifer is functionally immortal. He is immune to the effects of aging and is immune to all known Earthly diseases and infections. Lucifer is also beyond the need of food, water, or oxygen. If killed, he will merely reform in hell.
Magical Manipulation: He can use this magical energy for various effects only a few which have been shown. Known abilties includ the ability to project hellfire, shapeshift, and sense lying in others.
Ensnare Astral Bodies: Lucifer also possesses certain powers enabling him to capture and detain the astral bodies (sheaths of the soul) of recently deceased human beings.
Lucifer does not have jurisdiction over all the souls of humanity's recently deceased. It is not yet known what the prerequisite conditions are for him to be able to manipulate a human soul, nor are the precise means by which he accomplishes the feat known. Apparently these conditions require that the human being in question willingly agree to submit to Lucifer's will or at least be among the damned. It is not known how a human being may free himself from bondage to Lucifer (although Johnny Blaze apparently did), nor whether Lucifer will forever retain control of the souls he has obtained. Nor is it known whether or not Lucifer "feeds" on the psychic energies of such souls as other demons do.
Netherworld Dimensional Power Tap: Among the demons of various extradimensional netherworlds adjacent to Earth, Lucifer has few rivals in terms of personal power and scope of influence. Only Thog, Mephisto and Satannish come close. It is unknown if Lucifer can draw power from hell like other hell lords or if his power diminshies the longer he is away.
Lucifer is a master manipulator.
For unknown reasons, perhaps due to conditions of his banishement, Lucifer is trapped in hell. He cannot leave it under his own power like other demons or hell-lords. At best he can only send an apparition. To escape from hell, he requires the aid of an outside fource.
Lucifer is one of several beings claiming to be the "devil" figure found in Judeo-Christian theology with the exception being to it claiming to be the one, true devil. If it is telling the truth then it was originally a resident of the "heaven" found in Christianity and one of the greatest of the archangels. Accroding to one story it is responsible for leading an army of angels to banish the demonic N'Garai from Earth approximently one million years ago prior to his fall. At some point afterwards Lucifer led a rebellion of up to one-third of the angelic host in an attempt to take over heaven. His revolt failed. As punishment he and his followers were cast down into hell where they became demons. Lucifer eventually rose to claim rulership over a portion of Hell.
Due to the actions of other hell-lords its specific actions over the centuries to come are next to impossible to take for granted. (See notes) Lucifer claims to be the one who originally created the Ghost Rider. The only thing that can be taken for granted is that Lucifer recently came into possession of the soul of the Ghost Rider Johnny Blaze. Lucifer tortured Blaze with the hope of escaping from hell. Eventually, Lucifer tricked Blaze into escaping from hell taking Lucifer with him. In transit to Earth Lucifer split into 666 dfferent fragments each occuping a body of the recently deceased. Lucifer goaded Blaze into killing the individual bodies. As each body died, the fragment of its strength would go into and increase the power of the remaining fragments with the plan for Lucifer to be competely reunited and at full power on Earth when he would have enough power to kill the Ghost Rider. Before his plan could be completed Ghost Rider made one of the hosts brain dead tricking Lucifer into fighting him at only half power. Once that host was defeated and before it could full materialize in the last host, the last host was killed sending Lucifer back to hell.
Chaos Comics (Version)
Lucifer is originally seen as being the ruler of Hell and he chooses Purgatori to be his bride but after she drinks of his blood, though he is impressed by her spirit he casts her into the Nexus Of All Things and renames her Purgatori. He later seems to have Hell stolen from him by Lady Death but Purgatori later reveals that he was merely using Lady Death. He is angered that his plans were revealed and so he creates Lady Demon from Lady Death and pits her against Purgatori for his own entertainment.
