Lord Satanus was the king of Hell. Controlling which souls entered from the World's of the Orrery, Satanus ruled his dominion. Guarding all demons, except those who were locked in Lucifer's Circle, Satanus was shocked to discover the presence of Kaiyo the Trickster of Apokolips. Although he wanted to eat her, he was pleased when she offered him the Batman and Superman as amnesic sacrifices. Perhaps more powerful than the likes of Trigon and Azazel, the only demon more powerful than Satanus was the king of the Dead Zone. Satanus did not often, unlike most demons, concern himself with the matters of Earth.
