Who's Who: Lucifer 7

Lucifer 7
by Russell & Siskoid

Real Name: Lucifer 7
Super-Power(s): Creative Genius
Planet of Origin: Hasahl
Relationship to Legion: Villain (would-be world conqueror)

Legion Log
Lucifer 7 was a so-called criminal mastermind who tried to blackmail the planet Eyth. When they did not pay him what he demanded, Lucifer 7 used his Concentrator machine to sap energy from all sources in the United Planets and channel that stolen energy into a concentrated force beam that destroyed the planet Eyth.

The Science Police were immediately able to track down the source of the power failures and asked the Legion to go after Lucifer 7. He attacked them with robotic attack dogs, but the Legionnaires were able to defeat them easily. Triplicate Girl captured him as Phantom Girl was able to destroy the Concentrator.

None of the pertinent facts mentioned in the Who's Who entry above, such as Lucifer 7 being an android, were mentioned during his actual appearance. He also appeared in a green uniform, not brown as shown here.

Lucifer 7 never reappeared, nor was he re-imagined for the Reboot or Threeboot.

After Infinite Crisis, Lucifer 7's original history has presumably been more or less restored.

  1. I wonder -- is Lucifer's Concentrator the same gadget from "The Code of the Legion" in Adventure Comics #321, the one that the Legion was so tight-lipped about revealing?

    1. I assumed Bridwell, being a continuity junkie, threw the Concentrator into this story to tie up that loose end.

    2. Yeah, but if was SUCH a big secret, why was the story behind the device and its previous user so easily accessed on the Legion computer? No need for a Legion omerta, folks, here it is for the taking.
