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