Lilith is a demonic being with enormous magic powers. She was the first woman created by God, to be the wife of Adam. When Lilith refused to obey Adam, she was cast out of the Garden of Eden by God. Lilith tamed the beasts of the night and went to birth a species of Demon called the Lilim.
Lilith was the first woman created by God, modeled to be the wife of Adam, the first man. Lilith had her life purpose clear before her, but she had free will, as all God’s creations, and the simple fact that she had a personality of her own, with her desires, thoughts, likes and dislikes, made Adam reject her. Since she kept rebelling to her husband, God cast Lilith out of the Garden of Eden, and created Eve to fill her place. Lilith started wandering in a barren Earth, alone, but alone she wouldn’t have remained for long: angels visited her from time to time, and through them she drafted a plan to exact her vengeance of the children of Adam and Eve, as well as those of God Himself. The angels were genderless, pure spirits who didn’t have genitals nor knew sex, but Lilith was the Mother of All, and she could get pregnant with a mere whisper: she seduced many angels, made them know temptation and lust, and birthed hundreds of children, the Lilim, a race of beings who didn’t belong to any place in Creation, and who were loyal to themselves and to their mother only. She joined forces with the Jin En Mok Berim, the mysterious Silk Man and the rogue angel Sandalphon, bringing to the alliance the knowledge she had of the Silver City, built by the Lilim.
To revive Carnivore, one of her firstborn, she manipulated Mary Marvel and Bizarro Supergirl, to turn Linda Danvers, one of the Earthborn Angels, into a battery charged with Chaos, so she could be the key to freeing the Carnivore. As Linda travels across the country following the Flow of Chaos, Lilith has pulled the strings putting Linda and Etrigan-Buzz in trouble. She appeared in Las Vegas disguised as a nun to prevent Linda and Buzz's wedding, where she separated Buzz from Etrigan. She then ordered Queen Mab to give Mary Marvel dreams of going to Las Vegas and planned a battle between the two heroines. She then waited for Linda in the Garden of Eden with the Earthborn Angel and Bizarro. When Linda arrives, Lilith uses Bizarro to control the Earthborn angel to attack Linda. She was almost successful, but Twilight betrayed her and Buzz stabbed her with a Hell-Spawn Dagger and Linda pushes her to Hell.
There, she supported Neron in his war for Hell. Later, Lilith greeted Donna Troy and Bulleteer as they arrived at the Circle of Hell destined for Heresy. She reprimanded them for removing the lid on the tormented soul she was responsible for and then attacked them, claiming that Donna is a pagan and Bulleteer does not believe in God. During the fight, Donna realized that Lilth was holding an artifact that must have been her source of power; then Bulleteer was able to take the artifact out of Lilith's hand and the heroines managed to escape.
