Day of Judgment

Asmodel (New Earth) took the power of the Spectre and brought hell to earth. Sebastion was part of the newly reformed sentinels of magic that put a stop to it. To do it he had to reignite the fires of hell by murdering the Enchantress in cold blood. By doing so he lost his newly regained soul.

Black Baptism

Stopped another plot by the forces of hell to take over the world.


  • Soul Magic: Faust uses a form of sorcery known as soul magic; his spells are powered by the souls of others.
    • Clairvoyance: Faust can see the spirits of the dead that are usually invisible to others. In addition, by touching someone, Faust can let that person perceive the spirits as well. [1]
    • Ectokinesis: Faust was able to infuse Tempest with the spirits of ancient Atlantean sorcerers, amplifying Tempest's power and magical knowledge as a result. [1]
    • Aura Sense: Faust can sense and recognize the auras from others. Sometimes, when he does so, he sees people's silhouettes in a color that matches the state of their souls. [1]
    • Soul Tapping: By making physical contact with someone, Faust can "tap" someone's soul in order to temporary borrow someone's powers or abilities. The person Faust targets with this ability temporarily loses his or her powers and feels fairly weak when the power transaction first occurs. This ability appears to work on abilities that come from alternate power sources as well as ones that come internally from the source, given that he was able to steal Kyle Rayner's energy construct ability for a short while to save Zatanna. [2]
    • Shadow Walking: Faust can become virtually undetectable by walking through shadows. [2]
    • Mana Replenishing: While Faust's mana can naturally replenish, when Faust is low on mana, he can absorb small amounts from others to refuel himself quickly. However, in so doing, he tastes their souls, and not all of them taste very good, particularly the ones belonging to the insane. [2]
    • Emotion Projection: As a result to the process of losing his soul, which gave him his soul-magic abilities, Faust has the unintentional ability of inadvertently making some of those around him be filled with fear, hate, anger, or edginess. This effect does not seem to happen with everyone, but it has an effect on a considerable amount of people. [2]
    • Illusion Casting [2]
    • Eldritch Blast [3]
    • Teleportation


  • Sebastian Faust is British, although easily mistaken as American. [4]
