Lilith is a degenerated goddess from Marvel comics loosely based on the villain of biblical lore. She is the self-proclaimed "Mother Of All Demons" in a similar manner to how Echidna is labelled the "Mother Of All Monsters" in Greek mythology. She is the main villain of the midnight sons series
It is believed Lilith played a role in the formation of vampires while in Atlantis, as several beings have called her the "mother of vampires."
In retaliation for her actions, she was imprisoned inside the belly of the Leviathan by Atlantean wizards.
According to legend, she is also the same Lilith that attempted to seduce Adam. It is rumored she captured unbaptized children and devoured them in order to produce demons.
Lilith and Asmodeus spawned countless demons. Many of them were slain by the servants of Yahweh.
In modern times Lilith emerged from the body of the Leviathan (also known as Tiamat), who had settled in Greenland. She murdered a group of scientists that had come to inspect the strange creature. Wishing to learn the fate of her children and about the modern world, she began scrying.
Lilith attempted to seduce Danny Ketch in his dreams. After that attempt failed, she asked Nightmare to attack both him and Johnny Blaze.
She sent Fang after Morbius, and assassins to murder Victoria Montesi. She tricked the Nightstalkers into attacking Blaze and Ketch.
She and her Lilin increased their attacks as the dimensional barriers protecting Earth weakened. The Midnight Sons joined forces to oppose them.
Lilin, her children, and Zarathos were banished to Shadowside, but soon returned due to the weakened barriers. After Zarathos's destruction she vowed that she and her new child (fathered by Zarathos) would avenge him.
Most recently Lilith was among those weakened by the Hellphyr. She attempted to attack Doctor Strange (Stephen Strange) during this time but failed. Her most recent Lilin were destroyed by Jennifer Kale.
