Lucifer rejects God's rule and moral philosophy as tyrannical and unjust. The violent, aggressive, totalitarian, vengeful and dictatorial aspects of Heaven's rule are represented mostly by the Angel, Amenadiel, who has a particular hatred of Lucifer and leads attacks of various kinds against him. The attacks include verbal criticism, marshaling the host of Heaven , as well as challenging him to individual combat—almost all of it without the slightest care for the countless innocent, unwilling and unwitting victims that he is more than willing to sacrifice for his own pride.
For his part, Lucifer disdains Amenadiel, treating the latter's emotional outbursts with contempt, and repeatedly defeats Amenadiel's assaults with well-orchestrated, hidden plans.
Ironically, however, it is often difficult to discern when Lucifer acts as a slave to predestination and when he effectively acts according to his own free will. Lucifer appears as a master of these arts. In an encounter during the first Sandman story arc around issue 5 a weakened Dream outsmarts Lucifer. Lucifer first swears revenge on Dream, but later comes to accept Dream's critique of his role and project as Lord of Hell.
This inspires Lucifer's abdication, a vital element of the Sandman saga, and the point of departure for the Lucifer series. For Lucifer, his word is his bond. As David Easterman, a character who sees himself as a victim of Lucifer, puts it:.
Lucifer (DC Comics)
When the Devil wants you to do something, he doesn't lie at all. He tells you the exact, literal truth. And he lets you find your own way to Hell. While he avoids lying, his morality seldom extends to compassion and Lucifer regards the sacrifice of millions of souls as unimportant collateral damage ; there are few, if any, beings that he respects and even fewer for whom he cares. As the series opened in , Lucifer's "restful" retirement was disturbed by a series of associates from his past. After various catalytic events, he endeavored to create a universe in competition with and presumably against the wishes of his father, Yahweh.
The series paralleled The Sandman in several ways, with epic fantasy stories being told in arcs separated by one-shot episodes depicting a smaller, more personal tale. The title's 50th issue was penciled by P. Craig Russell , a homage to The Sandman Structurally, the series mostly follows its own path. Numerous gods appear, with greater focus on Judeo-Christian religion as viewed by Milton in Paradise Lost , Japanese mythology and Norse mythology than in Sandman.
As for the Endless themselves, Dream, Death , Delirium and Destiny appear, but their appearances are small and rare. The letters are inconsistent, with the first half of the series carrying particularly established fonts of Gaudium, Michael, and God, only to drop almost all of them, save Lucifer's, towards the end with numerous changes in the letterers. The series ended in June with issue 75 and has thus far been collected in 11 books, with a stand-alone story Lucifer: Nirvana published as a smaller graphic novel.
The series' parent title, The Sandman , also ran for 75 issues. When Lucifer ventures outside Creation, he sees something resembling the comics pages themselves. In the end of the Lucifer story arc, God and the devil are no longer part of the universe, and a former human Elaine Belloc is instead presiding over it. New concepts for Heaven and Hell are created, inspired and influenced by other human or superhuman characters in the story. The new situation is described on several occasions by the fallen cherubs Gaudium and Spera. In essence, it is "growing up", i.
Lucifer himself, his whole identity having been forged by that same motive, scoffs at his Father's final offer: to merge their beings described by God as a potlatch so that they can finally understand one another's perspective. As this would be the final expression of God's will even when delivered from "outside the plan", as he puts it , Lucifer finds the ultimate expression of his own defiant will by refusing the bargain and travelling beyond his Father's influence into the undefined void.
In this new timeline, Lucifer is much more influenced by traditional Christian theology. He is depicted as a malevolent, sadistic, and cunning fallen angel who is the ruler of Hell and seeks to possess human souls. He is held with great respect and fear by the denizens of Hell, who serve and obey him like a king. Lucifer himself, however, is mostly bored with his existence when the group known as the Demon Knights are captured by him during the early Middle Ages, and passes the time by finding small amusements, such as watching the struggles and falls of Etrigan the Demon.
Lucifer made a more physical appearance in I Vampire 19 after being tipped by John Constantine in destroying Cain. Lucifer immediately sentences Cain and drags him to Hell, though a being claiming to be him has appeared in the Modern Age of DC Comics to the superhero Deadman. Note : The versions of Lucifer, Michael, Gabriel, Cain and Abel in mainstream New 52 are not of the same continuity as the versions in the previous or later Lucifer comics and are currently noncanonical to the Vertigo Sandman - Lucifer - Hellblazer continuity, in which Lucifer is not ruling Hell and Cain has not been destroyed or banished to Hell.
This volume continues from where Lucifer left off before New 52 the New 52 version not being canon to this continuity. As this series begins, God is dead and Gabriel has accused Lucifer of His murder. Lucifer had motive and opportunity, but claims he can prove his innocence. If Gabriel finds the killer and takes the culprit into custody, his sins will be forgotten, and he will be welcomed back into the Silver City. Note : This version is not considered canon to the Lucifer comics starting in late Those will continue from where the Mike Carey continuity ended.
Lucifer is continuously described as a celestial being of incalculable power due to his dominion over the very substance and knowledge of the formation of Creation. He has been cited as one of the most powerful characters in the DC Multiverse. Through this understanding, Lucifer can shape the matter and foundation of the creation into anything he can imagine, including matter , energy and more abstract concepts, such as time.
He once shaped Big Bang energies released by death of his brother Michael into a new universe. In some ways, this makes him the most disadvantaged, though not the weakest, of the higher angelic host. He needs existing matter and where that is unavailable, the Demiurgic power of the Archangel Michael or that of God Himself to provide the foundation for him to shape. In certain dimensions for reasons unknown, he is powerless and his mobility is limited without his wings. He is also not unbeatable, as Basanos was able to kill him with probability manipulation.
He may choose to temporarily abandon his powers, including his immortality. In the story titled "Lilith", it is logically implied that God could destroy him at His own whim, which makes Lucifer sometimes wonder why He has not dealt with him already. He is so dangerous and unpredictable that even Death does not apply to him. He is never without the formidable resources of his brilliant intellect and his unbending will or inner strength, which allowed him to defy and confront his Father, as well as many other formidable opponents, without fear or doubt.
Although Lucifer's overt exercise of power is limited in the books, if he is provoked to violence, his preference seems to be to use fire and light as a weapon. His original role was as "God's lamplighter", in which he used his will to condense clouds of hydrogen into star-masses and set them alight. As terrifying as they are brief, battles with Lucifer usually begin and end with him drawing down the flames of a super-heated main sequence star and incinerating to ash anything in the immediate area. However, the true reasons why he favors light and fire are partially explained in the story "Lilith" from The Wolf Beneath the Tree.
Beyond his demigodly powers as an archangel, Lucifer possesses the common powers appropriate to an archangel of his position; superhuman strength , superhuman durability, flight , acidic blood or, rather, he bleeds willpower, as depicted in when he reaches Yggdrasil in The Wolf Beneath the Tree , a devastating sonic cry, telepathy and the power to speak to and understand animals. In addition, he is a psychopomp, able to bring back from death any individual who he himself has slain. As an archangel, his powers are significantly superior to other angels. In The New 52 reboot , Lucifer is shown to be significantly less powerful, often using Hell's armies to do his bidding and is susceptible to magic, shown when Excalibur was used to cut off his hand.
He has no power over animal souls. He can open and close magical portals to Earth from Hell and back again. He can use this power to either summon or banish demons, as he does with Etrigan. He is clairvoyant, possessing a heightened perception or knowledge of time, even to the extent of being able to know the future. Lucifer appears in Constantine , portrayed by Peter Stormare. This film's adaptation of Lucifer wears a pure white suit and has tattoos visible at the sleeves and neckline, implying a full body design, while constantly dripping a black oil from his feet that leaves footprints.
John Constantine summons Lucifer by slitting his wrists, knowing that suicide is a sin that will damn him and believing that Lucifer will come in person to collect his soul. Lucifer appears, stopping time in the process. He gloats over his victory and mocks Constantine's attempts to light a last cigarette, noting that the exorcist can no longer move his fingers properly, from cutting so deep. Constantine convinces Lucifer that Mammon is trying to usurp Lucifer's power. Lucifer reestablishes the flow of time, seizes Angela, with Mammon struggling inside her, and confronts Gabriel.
Though Gabriel tries to smite Lucifer with God's power, the demon remains unaffected; God has abandoned Gabriel, allowing Lucifer to banish Mammon back to Hell and to destroy Gabriel's wings. After this, Lucifer returns to Constantine, who offers his own soul in exchange for that of Angela's sister Isabel, a suicide, so that Isabel can be released to Heaven. Seeing it as a fair exchange, Lucifer grabs Constantine and begins to drag him away, but the exorcist's body becomes too heavy for Lucifer to move.
God has recognized a selfless sacrifice. Constantine, dying from the slit wrists and suffering from advanced lung cancer, is slowly drawn into a heavenly realm of golden light, Lucifer clutching at his body. Furious at his revenge being denied yet again, Lucifer revives and heals Constantine by reaching into his chest and pulling the cancer out, thereby giving Constantine the chance to prove his soul belongs in Hell after all. Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman also served as executive producers.
It was announced that Tom Ellis would portray the main character in the series. Fox later cancelled the series after 3 seasons on May 11, However, following the successful campaign " SaveLucifer" initiated by fans, the series was picked up by the streaming network Netflix for Season 4. The ten-episode season began streaming May 8, Netflix is also releasing Season 5, the final season of the show.
Lucifer , including the Sandman Presents mini-series and the Lucifer: Nirvana one-shot, has been collected together into eleven trade paperbacks :. Note: The full title of all volumes listed here start with " Lucifer: ". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
