Hell Is Earth

After innumerable attempts, Belial was able to finally overthrow Lucifer as King of Hell. Dethroned, Lucifer was kept in a cage by Belial.[3]


  • Angel Physiology: Unlike regular Fallen Angels, Lucifer retained his immense holy power, instead of it being faded away completely. As an archangel and one of the first angels created, Lucifer is one of the most powerful beings in the multiverse. He claims almost every being in the universe cowers at his approach.[4]
    • Cosmic Awareness: Lucifer possesses understanding of the workings of the universe on a cosmic scale.[2]
    • Dimensional Travel: Lucifer is capable of using his power to tear dimensional rifts in reality. Lucifer can travel through these portals himself or send other people through them. He once banished the demon Etrigan to the main Earth of the Multiverse by sending him through a portal.[1]
    • Enhanced Senses: As an angel, Lucifer's senses are enhanced to levels much greater than any normal human.
      • Enhanced Hearing: Lucifer's sense of hearing is so great he can hear across dimensions. While in space, Lucifer was able to hear his name being spoken from the realm of Hades.[5]
      • Enhanced Sense of Smell: Lucifer is capable of tracking someone by picking up on their "scent".[6]
    • Flight: Lucifer was able to fly through the use of his angelic wings,[7] before he eventually asked Dream of the Endless to cut them off.[8] He later grew demonic, bat-like wings that he can use to fly.[9]
    • Immortality: As a fallen angel, Lucifer is functionally immortal, and cannot die by any ordinary means. He will never grow physically old and can live forever.
    • Interstellar Travel[4]
    • Invulnerability: Lucifer is capable of withstanding high amounts of physical damage without taking any harm. He is unaffected by objects such as bullets,[6] and was able to withstand being inside the heart of a dying star, while sustaining no injury.[5]
    • Magic: Lucifer is capable of using forbidden magic spells for various purposes. One spell allowed him to create a shard of calcified moonlight from a raven's feather.[10]
    • Metamorphosis: Lucifer is able to transform into various avatars of himself and change his appearance at will.[6]
    • Molecular Reconstruction: Lucifer is able to create single cells at will, which he can cultivate and accelerate into an organism. When building a house from scratch, Lucifer created and killed millions of organisms in order to create enough sand to make concrete.[5]
      • Healing: Lucifer control over molecules allow him to "re-knit" fatal wounds of others. Mazikeen stated that while Lucifer is not made of flesh, he finds it simple to manipulate.[11]
      • Molecular Acceleration[5]
    • Necromancy: Lucifer possesses control over the damned souls of Hell and has made deals with humans in exchange for souls.[12]
    • Photokinesis: Lucifer is able to generate blinding amounts of white hot light.[13]
    • Power Distribution: Lucifer is capable of distributing power to others. He was capable of granting Etrigan his full power back, after it was taken away.[14]
    • Pyrokinesis: Lucifer is capable of generating and manipulating hell-fire, which scorches the victim's soul, along with the body.[4] He is able to engulf himself in these flames, as well as generate it from his fingertips to light cigarettes.[15]
      • Disintegration: Lucifer can use his power over fire to incinerate other beings, as he did with two of his demon guards.[16]
    • Regeneration: Lucifer can heal any wound instantly with no level of difficulty, even replacing destroyed tissue. Lucifer was able to grow himself a pair of eyes after they were previously destroyed.[8] [17]
    • Self-Sustenance: Due to his angelic physiology, Lucifer can survive in harsh environments without air, sleep, food or water, as well as survive unaided within the vacuum of space.[5]
    • Superhuman Strength: As an archangel, Lucifer possesses strength far greater than any normal human.[5]
    • Telekinesis: Lucifer is capable of telekinetically manipulating the movement of people and objects.[6] He was able to effortlessly snap a man's neck with the snap of his fingers, as well as project blasts of telekinetic energy.[6]



  • Clairvoyant Mirror: By looking through a mirror in his possession Lucifer can see events transpiring in locations he doesn't have access to, in a similar way to a crystal ball.[7]
