Before Etrigan's birth, hell had three rulers Lucifer, Beelzebub, and Belial(oldest son of Trigon). Belial gave birth to three sons -- Etrigan, Merlin, and Scapegoat. His firstborn was The Demon, birthed by the demonic serpent woman, Ran va Da'ath. Prophecy was spoken through Hell that it was this firstborn son, Etrigan, who would end up being Hell's undoing. So Belial then fathered Merlin with the intent of having him be Etrigan's foil and they battle through out the centuries and Eventually Etrigan does become King of Hell for a time but this thread will focus on his accomplishments rather than his history.

Etrigan is a character that for the vast majority deals with magical creatures and so he isn't the typical hero or villain that has a vast number of speed, strength and punching durability feats but he does have a few. Let's look into them

-

Speed

Speed is something that his creator Jack Kirby mentions often in Etrigan's firt series titled The Demon from 1972. Here are a few I collected.

The attackers are faster than the humans can see or even hear.

But Etrigan is so fast that they can't manage to hit him and even using their incredible speed and perception.

Magic

As a character who is written in the mystical and paranormal part of DC he is usually performing some type of magic whether it be his hell fire or casting spells. Here are a few.

Durability

Etrigan is very durable and has some really good feats but I will have 2 sections with durability feats because I want to showcase some of his fights and not crop them into seperate feats lists. With that said here are a couple durability feats.

Belial tried to teach Etrigan discipline as a child by torturing him but as it turns out, Etrigan enjoys pain

In a different issue here he takes a punch from Wonder Woman and she tries trapping him by wrapping a car around him which obviously doesnt work and he gets out of it immediately

Notable battles

In this section I just wanted to show some of his best fights. You will see things like

  • Etrigan clawing Eclipso Spectre's face off
  • Etrigan using his claws to cut through Supermans abdomen
  • Etrigan stalemating Lobo which is impressive. They've fought about 4 times by my count and have stalemated every time.
  • Etrigan using his hell fire and magic on Lobo.
  • Etrigan punching Superman into the moon
  • Etrigan's battle with a demon shaking a city

I updated my post. I added Etrigan breaking through Alan Scott's defense shield and I also added Etrigan using a spell to reprogram a missile.

Did you read the recent Trinity Annual #1?

It made an unbound Etrigan very powerful?

I saw 2 scans of it in a Superman respect thread a few days ago but I haven't read it. It's been about 4 months since I've read any comic books so I'm not up to date.

@jb681131: That sucks. I don't read comics that aren't canon because I think they're a waste of my time.

Damn ! Some of the best comics are non-canon ! You are missing a lot.

Does this mean you've never or will never read:

  • Kindom Come
  • Superman: Red Son
  • DC: New Frontier
  • Earth-One
  • Arkham Asylum; A serious House on a Serious Earth
  • The Dark Knight Returns
  • Spider-Man's Tangled Web
  • ...

And I didn't say The Brave and The Bold is not canon, I juste sayd that each story can be read on it's own. The concept of the Brave and The Bold is to team-up 2 or more DC heroes and make them have a single issue adventure.

Thank you. I had to read every Pre-Flashpoint Etrigan canon comic to make this.
