Rafe further complicated the dynamic with the Falcon by having a relationship with the Falcon's romantic interest Leila Taylor.

However, the Falcon and Rafe soon quarreled again over Leila. A frustrated Michel assembled his gang the "Silver Skulls" to beat the Falcon. However, the Falcon was able to defeat the gang, and Michel soon lost his prominence in the Harlem Community.

The two Lucifers soon came into conflict with Steve Rogers and the Falcon. Eventually, the energy from Lucifer could not be contained in Rafe Michel's body and he perished.[2]
