Poll: True face of Darkness
It is often unclear in comic books as to whether a dark entity is the true face of the devil or not. Now you can decide who would be the most appropriate ruler of Hell. Here are your contestants: Lucifer Morningstar rules in DC Comics, Mephisto deceives in Marvel Comics, Tehum is pure darkness in sCrypt comics universe, and Malebolgia threatens in Image comics.
Remember to cast your vote below, and if you feel that there is a better representative from another comic source, then by all means answer “other” and explain your choice.
Lucifer Morningstar is a fallen angel who left hell at one point to have influence on earth’s mortals. He often gives a person enough information to allow them to make a bad choice that will eventually send them to hell. He is immortal, knows everything, has acidic blood, super strength, flight abilities, can communicate with animals and super speed. His first appearance was in a dream in Superman’s Pal Jimmy Olsen #65 in 1962.
Mephisto is known by many names. He is the ultimate deal maker, offering virtually limitless possibilities to one who would be tempted. He deals always come with a price however. Tangling with the most powerful entities in the universe, Mephisto lurks from the depths of hell only coming to earth when he sees fit. He knows magic, is immortal, & has unfathomable intelligence and physical abilities. His first appearance was in Silver Surfer #3 in 1968.
Tehum was created as light’s brother. He is pure, formless darkness (hence why there is no picture). As the ruler of dark, his demons strayed from the light with the belief that humans were mere toys for their godly amusement. Forbidden to physically come to earth, he lurked from the shadows having influence over all. That is until the day came when he was able to bring his legions to one final battle with the forces of light on earth. He is virtually immortal, and without form, his darkness can influence anything or anyone. His first appearance will be in “Devil’s Dessert” the novel in 2013.
Malebolgia is one of the many rulers of hell. Responsible for creating much of Hell’s army of hellspawns, Malebolgia is respected and feared as the most powerful of rulers. He can raise the dead, manipulate matter, has near limitless abilities in the 8th level of hell, can cast illusions and is a master of manipulation with high recuperative powers. Malebolgia first appeared in Spawn #1 in 1992.
