  • Azazel (Marvel)
rdfs:comment
  • Azazel claimed he was one of the oldest mutants, leader of a group of demonic-looking mutants called the Neyaphem. He even claimed that he once battled Mephisto and others for the title of "Satan". Thousands of years ago, the Neyaphem held war against the Cheyarafim, a group of xenophobic mutants with angelic appearances. The Cheyarafim were victorious, and banished the "demons" to a separate plane of existence, known as the Brimstone dimension. If he survived this, it is unknown if he kept his powers or not, although Kiwi Black and Abyss are both depowered.

  • Azazel claimed he was one of the oldest mutants, leader of a group of demonic-looking mutants called the Neyaphem. He even claimed that he once battled Mephisto and others for the title of "Satan". Thousands of years ago, the Neyaphem held war against the Cheyarafim, a group of xenophobic mutants with angelic appearances. The Cheyarafim were victorious, and banished the "demons" to a separate plane of existence, known as the Brimstone dimension. Azazel was the only one who was able to breach the dimensional void for brief periods of time due to his teleportation powers, though he could use no other power, as he was still a prisoner. Attempting to find a way to permanently return to Earth, he began mating with strong women who had strange abilities, at least with looks and abilities other women didn't have, because his children are linked to his dimension, and successfully birthing a Neyaphem takes a great physical strain. Eventually, the mutant warlord met Mystique in Germany, when she was married to a rich castle lord named Baron Christian Wagner. Mystique was introduced to Azazel, whom Christian knew as a business partner, and the two were instantly attracted to one another, and although she was hesitant to betray Christian, she gave in to Azazel and they became intimate. Not much later, Mystique became pregnant with Nightcrawler. Sometime before his son's birth, Azazel learned that the Cheyarafim were close to locating him. Azazel knew that without his full power, the Cheyarafim would surely kill Mystique and their unborn child as well as him. Though it pained him to be separated from Mystique, as he had come to truly love her, Azazel made it appear that she was a tool and that he had no feelings for her, then left. He was assured that Mystique and his son would be alright and find some way to survive. Azazel sired several dozen other children, who were all mysteriously called to gather and sacrifice themselves on the island known as the Isla Des Demonas to open a portal and bring his army to earth to destroy both the Cheyarafim and what he calls "Normal" mutants, mutants who's bodies where not mutated and where not seen as monsters and demons. In addition to Nightcrawler, another son of Azazel's was the Genoshan called Abyss. They all joined each other in their zombie-like state and opened a portal to Azazel's dimension. A group of X-Men had followed Kurt to see where he was going and jumped into the portal. Once inside, Azazel took great sadistic pleasure in toying with the team, having them believe that he was actually Satan. In the end, the X-Men defeated Azazel and his army and banished him to an unknown oblivion. The X-Men were able to escape along with two of Azazel's children who survived: Abyss and Kiwi Black. The whereabouts of Azazel have yet to be revealed. If he survived this, it is unknown if he kept his powers or not, although Kiwi Black and Abyss are both depowered.
