Originally an angel who joined Lucifer's rebellion against God during his war in Heaven, Asmodeus was cast out like Lucifer and others, Asmodeus degenerated into a demon and came to rule a subsection of the nether realm Hell. He also mated with fellow outcast Lilith, parenting many demonic offspring, though most were slain by agents of Heaven. Seeking to restore his waning power over humanity, Asmodeus used his Netherflame to identify the Ghost Rider as a powerful demon he could use to terrorize Earth. Asmodeus dispatched the she-witch Tabicantra to destroy the humanity within the Ghost Rider, so Asmodeus could enslave him, but Tabicantra fell in love with Blaze and used her own life force to save him from V'Zarr-Than and Asmodeus' other demons. Eventually this ends up in a struggle between Asmodeus and Mephisto for the Ghost Rider which ended with Mephisto incinerating Asmodeus.
Years later, Asmodeus regained power and retook his realm of Hell, awakening his minions from their slumber. To initiate his campaign of terror, Asmodeus facilitated Dracula's resurrection with the aid of human pawn Professor Gregor Smirnoff. Asmodeus aided Smirnoff in granting Dracula vast power via sacrifice of Smirnoff's cult. Mephisto may have restored the true Asmodeus and consigned him to his lowly position. This may have been Asmodeus' first step towards regaining his power and his realm.
Asmodeus is a Marvel comic book character, created by Michael Fleisher and Donald Perlin first appearing in Ghost Rider #53 released in 1981.
