Bio: A demonic entity and brother of Blaze. His current mortal guise is respectable Collin Thornton, head of Newstime magazine in Metropolis. Long ago, Satanus' sister Blaze exiled him from her dimension. Superman first encountered Satanus when Blaze tried using Superman and the suicidal Sam Foswell, former editor of the Daily Planet in an attempt to kill Satanus. Recently, Lord Satanus tricked Superman into believing Satanus helped Superman by stopping the use of the mutagenic drug DMN (an addictive drug that transforms addicts into strange monsters) in Metropolis, but Satanus didn't disclose he had created the drug.
