Detritus is essentially an evil sentient being made of water that is capable of destroying entire towns and killing most regular people in his way. Not just by drowning them either. Detritus was shown killing a regular man in mere moments as he dissolved the man's entire being right down to his bones. As Detritus consumes more victims the bones and body parts of those victims accumulate within it's physical form, allowing skulls to sit on top of his being and dismembered arms and legs to stick out from it's body.
Detritus was created by The Salesman. A twisted being who "grants" wishes to desperate people in the worst possible way imaginable. Originally, The Salesman granted the "wish" of Enoch, a man whose town was going to be turned into a lake and all residents forced out. He was desperate to keep his town alive and well and made a deal with The Salesman. As usual, the Salesman had other ideas for how to grant this "wish".
Enoch turned into the being known as Detritus and wreaked havoc before being able to shed the curse the Salesman had placed on him. The curse however, alive and well, simply passed itself onto Enoch's brother, Johnny. Johnny continued on his rampage, killing most of what was left of the town and chasing after those who managed to escape.
That version of Detritus was stopped by both Enoch and another creation of the Salesman, the hero known as Brimstone.
In issue #4 of The Curse of Brimstone, the character, Enoch, calls Detritus, Elijah. It's revealed in Annual #01 of the same series that Enoch was in fact originally Detritus before managing to somewhat escape the curse, allowing it to take on a life of it's own and consuming his brother Johnny. Johnny then went forward with the curse and continued to rampage through the town killing the remaining residents and chasing after those that tried to escape. It's currently not known who Elijah is or was, or why Enoch referred to Detritus as Elijah.
