Abaddon (a.k.a. Apollyon) was a demon of the pit and one of Satan's champions who challenged Captain Marvel for his uncle's soul.[1]

The first known involvement of Apollyon with superhumans was against Ibis the Invincible. Humphrey Keene, a Taia's admirer wanted a power that could match the Ibistick; Apollyon gave him a black Ibistick in exchange of his soul, which led him to a conflict with Ibis. In their fight, Taia was killed; Humphrey asked to Apollyon to return Taia's life in exchange of his and was granted. Ibis traveled to the Nether world in order to make Apollyon free Humphrey; Ibis mentioned that "we've fought before under many guises". [2]
