Character biography

Thought to be the equivalent of Satan in the Bible, he is responsible for the creation of Spawn. It is eventually revealed that Malebolgia is one of Hell's many rulers, a being from the "Eighth Circle of Hell" who has been around for 70,000 years or so, forming an army in its war against Heaven and God. Satan himself was only recently revealed in the Spawn comics, Wanda's daughter (the twin to God, Wanda's son). It has been noted that Malebolgia was constantly at war with the rulers of the other spheres of Hell, as well as at odds with Mammon. This article is about the concept of Satan. ... For other uses, see Bible (disambiguation). ... For other uses, see Heaven (disambiguation). ... God is a fictional character from the Spawn universe and the supreme master of Heaven. ... For many years of believing Malebolgia was the Devil in the Spawn universe, the Prince of Darkness has finally made his way into the Spawn comics. ... Mammon is a fictional character and powerful entity from the comic book, Spawn and is currently the primary antagonist, having replaced Malebolgia over 50 issues ago in that role. ...


Malebolgia is one of the few characters from Spawn who has made an appearance or a cameo in other Image books outside the core Spawn title and its spin-offs. He was notably absent, but was mentioned, during Chapel's rise to power in Hell when he usurped control of Hell away from Lucifer and became Lord Chapel as part of a large Image crossover including Prophet, Supreme, the groups Youngblood, Brigade and others. Lucifer also appeared in the Angela mini-series, quite different from the Lucifer in the Liefeld-laden crossover but for the most part it is believed that he is not the Satan of the Spawn universe. That left Malebolgia and Mammon as the highest ranking devil-like characters in Spawn canon, until the actual appearance of Satan in the Spawn comics.

For many years of believing Malebolgia was the Devil in the Spawn universe, the Prince of Darkness has finally made his way into the Spawn comics. ...


Death

Malebolgia was slain by Spawn in issue #100. Spawn was offered the crown of the Eighth Circle, and though he declined, Spawn still received vastly enhanced powers and a command over Hell itself. It has become known that Mammon was a far more commanding presence in Hell than Malebolgia. Though Malebolgia was given self-determination and rule over Hell, he was far from the most powerful being in The Pit.


The name is taken from the term in Dante's Inferno used to describe Malebolge, the ditches (bolge) in the eighth circle of Hell where the evil (male) are punished. DANTE is also a digital audio network. ... For other uses see The Divine Comedy (disambiguation), Dantes Inferno (disambiguation), and The Inferno (disambiguation) Dante shown holding a copy of The Divine Comedy, next to the entrance to Hell, the seven terraces of Mount Purgatory and the city of Florence, with the spheres of Heaven above, in Michelino...

Powers and abilities

Malebolgia was respected and feared as the most powerful of the rulers, and thus the de-facto grand master of Hell. His powers include energy projection, matter manipulation, enormous physical strength, recuperative abilities, and abilities to morph and induce hallucinations. His standing in Hell's hierarchy gives him nigh-omnipotent power while in the 8th Sphere. His mastery of necroplasm gives him the exclusive ability to create Hellspawn and during his rule, he created an army larger than anything Heaven could handle. A hallucination is a perception in the absence of a stimulus that the person may or may not believe is real. ... Necroplasm is a will-controlled substance featured in the fictional Spawn universe. ...

MALEBOLGIA was formed in late 2000 by Joseph and Kevin in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
At that point MALEBOLGIA was just a side project for the two Death Metal fans to play their favorite style of music as well as vent some hatred for rednecks.
