"A Lilith made of darkness and teeth who ends everything."
Thomas Coville[src]

Lilith was a mythological creature mentioned by Thomas Coville.

Biography

At some point, Lilith became a widely-known mythological figure associated with the myths of dark gods.

While explaining apocryphal myths of the Worldkillers to Kara Danvers, Thomas Coville compared the antagonistic entity to the so-called "Beast" (speculated to be Yuda Kal, the original goddess of Krypton before Rao, worshiped by heretics), to Lilith.[1]

Using the Harun-El, Supergirl transported her and Samantha Arias' minds and Reign to the multiversal plains of Juru and the Fountains of Lilith, which would suggest that the entity was known to Kryptonian witches all along.[2]

Trivia

  • While mythological status of the character makes it unclear, whether she exists on Earth-38 for real, but on Earth-1, Lilith is a confirmed existing mystical creature mentioned on Constantine. It could be presumed that those two Liliths are doppelgängers due to them being based on the same real-life mythological character.

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics there are a few characters named or nicknamed Lilith, including a demon and a vampire, both of whom are based on the same figure from Jewish mythology described below.
    • The most well known is Lilith, a sorceress and a member of Teen Titans.
  • In Jewish mythology, Lilith (/ˈlɪlɪθ/; Hebrew: לִילִית‎‎ Lîlîṯ) is a figure developed as early as the Babylonian Talmud (3rd to 5th centuries). She was the first woman to be created alongside Adam, the first man, from dust. After her disobedience to God, Lilith was cast out of Eartj and became a dangerous antagonistic demonic entity of the night who steals infants in the darkness and is also a sexually wanton woman.
