Origins

Belial was an angel living in Heaven, but was cast out,[4] presumably for being part of the rebels in the War in Heaven.

He became a demon of lies and was once the servant of Satan.[1][5]

Modern Age

Belial now appears to be the demon lord of Gehenna, a Hell dimension.[1]

When Hedy Wolfe convinced Mad-Dog and Hellstrom that Patsy Walker was out to get them, the pair teamed up and sent Patsy to Belial's domain. Belial tempted Patsy with promises of power, but Patsy resisted him and escaped his realm through trickery.[6]

Belial and Hedy Wolfe

Upset about being used, Hellstrom sought out Hedy and sent her to Belial's domain as punishment. While there Hedy and Belial met and became romantically involved with each other.[7]

Powers

As the ruler of Gehenna, Belial is a Demon with powers including:

  • Illusions: Belial can create illusions to disguise himself as others or to create visions and mirages.[1]
  • Netherworld Dimensional Power Tap: As the master of Gehenna, Belial can manipulate and conjure anything within his realm. Additionally, his powers appear to be drawn from his home dimension though his powers are not strictly limited to his dimension.[1]
  • Pyrokinesis: Belial appeared to summon and control Hellfire.[1]
  • Power Bestowal: Belial offered to make Hellcat into demon and give her additional powers.[1]
  • Trans-Dimensional Teleportation: Belial can travel instantly between dimensions such as Earth and Gehenna.[1][7]




  • Belial's Cavalry were described as a super-powerful hellspawn who could bond to mortal hosts, and Daniel mentioned them as being possibly the entity making of Johnny Blaze the Ghost Rider.[8]
  • Belial is a Hell-Lord and ruler of his own pocket dimension resembling Christian Hell. Most Hell-Lords of this type are Class Two Demons, but Belial has not specifically been confirmed as such.
