When a war broke out in Heaven between the angels, Micah rebelled with Lucifer and was cast down along with all who had opposed God. Now a demon in Hell, Micah abandoned his angelic name and began calling himself Kazann. Although he was cast from Heaven, Kazann remained in touch with his brother Malachi. They worked together to help each other become more powerful in their respective planes of existence, by sharing vital information and secrets of Heaven and Hell. By sharing the information, they devised plans to counter each other's actions while making themselves look good in order to rise through the ranks. At some point after his fall, Kazann lost his physical body and was reduced to a disembodied spirit inhabiting one vessel after the other, forced to feed on human souls to sustain a corporeal form.

After the petroleum tycoon Earl Gustav was left a quadriplegic after driving drunk, he began performing occult rituals, contacting the demon Kazann in hopes that it would restore his mobility. Kazann agreed, if in return Gustav would perform certain rituals to allow Kazann to escape from Hell and create a new Hell on Earth. Regarding all his fellow mortals as lesser beings, Gustav was glad to do this no matter the cost. Kazann had Gustav (who in turn had his secretary Jemima Catmint do the work for him) inscribe certain devices to carry out his plans. Gustav sacrificed a group of his board members; this allowed Kazann to gain physical formm by using the group's remains to create a demonic body. Kazann's presence on Earth did no go unnoticed, and the archangel Ruth and Hoss, one of Hell's best tracker-scouts, were dispatched to bring him back, while Malachi released the Ghost Rider from Hell in order to employ him as his pawn in stopping Kazann's plans.

Kazann used a drill inscribed with a ritual portal spell that could, upon hitting the Earth's molten core, penetrate the spirit barrier, opening a tunnel to the spirit world and creating a gateway to the afterlife, allowing demons to come to Earth. As Kazann's demon army began to surge through the gateway, Ghost Rider, Hoss and Ruth made their way to the Gustav Petroleum headquarters to stop Kazann. While Hoss and Ruth battled each other, Ghost Rider confronted Kazann, destroying his Earthly body and revealing his true form. Realizing what she had been a part of, Jemima Catmint then forces Gustav to cast the Hymn of Recall spell, sending Kazann and his demon army back to Hell. Ruth then startled Catmint, causing her to let go of Gustav's wheelchair, allowing him to roll into the pits of Hell itself.

Ghost Rider was bewildered upon returning to Hell, and Malachi soon appeared, telling him that no one, be they an angel, demon or even God could save a lost soul from damnation. Malachi mistakenly revealed his partnership with Kazann during this conversation, and Ruth then tore Malachi's wings off, causing him to fall from grace and become mortal. Ghost Rider was forced to return to his life of torment, racing towards the gates of Hell each night. Only this time he was able to take solace in knowing that Malachi would suffer the same fate each night as he dragged him behind him.[1]


A demon of great power as well as a disembodied fallen angel, Kazann no longer possesses a true physical form but can gain a physical body by possessing others or creating a body for himself from human remains. In such forms, Kazann possesses enhanced strength and durability, and the ability to heal others. He is well versed in occult rituals, spells and incantations of dark magic. Kazann does not need to eat, sleep or drink and is immune to aging and conventional disease.[1]
