Mammon is one of the main antagonists of the Spawn series, serving as the second main antagonist. Initially acting as an ally of Spawn, he is later revealed to be one of the Forgotten Ones, who was banished to Hell and became one of its many rulers, serving as the lord of Hell's Ninth Circle. Following Malebolgia's initial defeat, Mammon overthrew him and took his place as the ruler of Hell. Eventually, he too would lost this position as well.
He is portrayed as one of the hellspawn's most powerful enemies to date: surpassing even his rival, Malebolgia. However, for all his power Mammon is still inferior to the true lord of Hell in Spawn's universe: Satan - another of Spawn's many enemies.
Mammon has always shown himself to be a master of manipulation and does not like to get his own hands dirty unless he has to, in direct contrast to Violator's tendency to get violently involved in bloodshed (often for fun).
Mammon is a very powerful creature who bargains with humans for their souls and rarely finds a soul that can resist his charm, he is believed to have masterminded most of the events that led to Al Simmons becoming Spawn - Mammon's current goal is to attain the Throne of Creation so he can weld the power to remake the universe in his own image.
Mammon's power is shown by the fact that Malebolgia - a demon long believed to be Satan - was "but a flea" in comparison to Mammon: his status in Hell is shown by the fact high-ranking demons refer to him as "Lord" but refer to the true Satan as "Master" (meaning Mammon is apparently second in command next to the King of Darkness). He is defeated by Spawn and sealed away by Nyx in Spawn #184.
Mammon made cameos in 296 and 297 in a flashback.
Mammon is one of the most evil demons and is a deceitfully cowardly manipulative fall angel.
Mammon in his human form appears with black hair and a suit with a scar on his face. He also sometimes have green eyes and in his demon form he is large with bat wings and a more monster IOU’s appearance.
Powers and Abilities
As one of the Lords of Hell, Mammon is a universal level demon-like Malebolgia but while he's not actually incompetent, he's vastly outclassed by Satan and Malebolgia in terms of power. While he's of use to Satan in the Armageddon arc, he's still playing second fiddle, as shown how he doesn't dare fight Spawn directly without Morana to take Leetha out of the picture. He is a skilled chessmaster and more manipulative than Malebolgia and Wynn.

Dark Lord Mammon is a trickster demon, unmatched when it comes to deception and the power of persuasion. Long overlooked among his dastardly peers, he now stands on the cusp of becoming an even bigger threat than any who came before him."
He also appears as the overarching antagonist in the 2004 graphic novel, Spawn: Simony. written by Alex Nikolavitch and illustrated by Aleksi Briclot.
