To 'Alexandar von Cartein Zarovich' (Jul 31, 2021): Here’s what "TV Tropes" has to say about Lucifer Morningstar and Michael Demiurgos, both from DC Comics…

LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR
1) Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: While Lucifer is stoic and indifferent to others for the most part, make no mistake, he is pride and ego personified. Unlike most examples, he doesn't have an 'Inferiority Superiority Complex' nor does he have thin skin ('Can't Take Criticism'). It's just that he's so powerful that crushing anyone who disrespects him is so little effort he doesn't mind exerting himself to do so. Keep in mind that Lucifer helped shape reality at the dawn of time. While inflicting some horrible curse on someone may take a lot of magic, time, and effort for a sorcerer, for Lucifer it is about as demanding as swatting a fly.

2) Jerkass Has a Point: CONSTANTLY. It's part of what makes him so effective; as infuriating as he often acts, he's RIGHT about the things he says much of the time (and everyone knows it).

3) Logical Weakness: Lucifer can control, shape, warp, and transmute any aspect of reality (even abstract concepts like time and space) BUT he cannot make something from nothing. He needs a medium to work with like a potter needing clay or a painter needing canvas, paint and brush. If he were banished or trapped in a void (which has happened to him willingly and unwillingly) he is basically powerless (he can generate fire from within himself but that's about it).

4) Nay-Theist: Being the son and self-proclaimed arch-nemesis of The Presence, he has no respect for gods, sacred things, being COMPARED to gods or worship of any kind. Having no respect for all that is sacred, he will either desecrate it to get it out of his way or for his own amusement.

5) Not Quite the Almighty: He is one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe, being one of the few beings (the few that can be COUNTED ON ONE HAND) immune to Death's domain and can terrify Dream (who in-turn can intimidate other gods) at the thought of encountering him. That said, Lucifer isn't necessarily invincible, the Presence being his creator and Michael his equal.

6) Reality Warper: A literal example. Lucifer is second only to the creator of existence Yahweh with limitless will and absolute command over existence (time, space, reality, etc.) which he can use to almost any affect up to and including perfectly resurrecting the dead. What stops him from being 'The Omnipotent' is that his father's authority over the universe supersedes his own and Yahweh can restrict Lucifer's abilities as much as he chooses. Lucifer also cannot create anything from nothing. He can shape anything that exists but he needs SOMETHING to exist in order to make or manipulate anything. Lucifer is specifically the SHAPER of the cosmos. In a void of nothing, he'd be basically powerless.

7) Strong and Skilled: Is one of the most powerful beings in existence, and he has billions of years of experience using his powers perfectly. He's also a very good swordsman, being able to keep up with his brother Michael himself.

8) The Unfettered: Lucifer is the personification of free will and choice. His defining nature is to be unfettered by any constraint. There is no action, no matter how terrible or nightmarish, he won't perform if needed to further his goals.

9) Wilfully Weak: A rare 'Villain Protagonist' version is in play with Lucifer. Lucifer at full strength is equalled only by his bother and surpassed only by God. Yet often he doesn't bring this raw unimaginable power to bear in his dealings or affairs while going about his goals. Justified somewhat by the fact that Lucifer is prideful and an extremely intelligent manipulator who prefers using his wit rather than force. From his point of view, any thug can use force and doing so shows little creativity or imagination. He ego demands that he never stoop to the level of those he sees as beneath him and he loves to prove that he's the smartest guy in the room who doesn't even need his virtually limitless powers to beat his opponents. Crushing enemies with a handicap is definitely the hallmark of somebody as prideful as Lucifer.

MICHAEL DEMIURGOS
1) Archangel Michael: He's THE Archangel Michael, the most famous and powerful of the Archangels.

2) The Dutiful Son: He always does what he thought his father wanted of him. Throughout the series, he grows less certain that it was really obedience his father wanted.

3) The Omnipotent: He's the second most powerful being in the (DC) universe, equaled only by his brother, Lucifer, and surpassed only by their creator, the Presence/God.

P.S: And some more miscellaneous trivia on Lucifer Morningstar, for further 'understanding'…
1) Affably Evil/Faux Affably Evil: Lucifer is a very polite, charming, charismatic and nonchalant individual. His politeness towards people like Michael, Mazikeen and Elaine Belloc is sincere. The same can't be said of his politeness towards beings he doesn't care about.

2) Anti-Villain: Although he's a sadistic fallen angel, he's sympathetic compared to the rest of the demons of hell, and his true motivation is to gain true freedom and happiness. Plus, he has a strong sense of honour, he will never lie or break his word, and those on the short list of people he cares for he cares for absolutely. In the end, he's just a guy stuck doing a pointless job he hates.

3) Badass Boast: Points out to Remiel that he has not lost one IOTA of power since he was God's greatest angel and the ruler of Hell.

4) Deadpan Snarker: Especially in his appearance in "The Kindly Ones", in which he also lays a brutally accurate "The Reason You Suck" Speech on Remiel.

5) Deal with the Devil: He has NO IDEA where humans got this idea from, and considers it a feeble attempt to avoid responsibility for their actions. What would he do with a soul, even if he could "own" one, anyway?

6) Debt Detester: He HATES being in anyone's debt and the first thing he'll do should he owe someone — whether its saving his life or helping his goals along willingly without provocation — is to come up with some clever gift as a way of saying thanks, even if they are left worse off from their viewpoint. This is even implied to be the root behind his infamous hatred for his father; God created him and there is nothing Lucifer could possibly do in return that could match up.

7) Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: "Life" may be the wrong term for an immortal, but the principle is the same.

8) Divine–Infernal Family: The central drama of his opposition to God is fuelled by being as such His son as His creation.

9) Foil: To Morpheus. Lucifer is the ruler of Hell just as Morpheus is the ruler of the Dreaming, but their character arcs go in opposite directions. In addition, Lucifer is extremely emotive and passionate (but makes masterful plans as 'The Chessmaster'), while Morpheus is 'The Stoic' (but also capricious and impulsive when he really shouldn't have to).

10) I Have Many Names: Lucifer Morningstar, Prince of Hell, the Devil, Prince of the East…

11) Never My Fault: It goes without saying but as one of the most prideful beings in existence, Lucifer almost never accepts responsibility or blame for anything because that would require caring about others or having empathy. Often he likes to play it off as other people believing things to be one way while Lucifer pulls 'Metaphorically True' on them. He's also very careful with 'Exact Words' because he knows how to manipulate people and when others accuse him of wrong doing he can go 'Rules Lawyer' on them and (technically) be off the hook for the horrible stuff he's a part of.

12) Pet the Dog: Despite his status as 'The Sociopath', he IS capable of small acts of kindness.

13) Seen It All: One of the main reasons he gives up Hell. He got bored.

14) Soft-Spoken Sadist: More prominent in his recent series but even in his earlier incarnations, he had shades of this. Lucifer isn't one to gloat or ham it up, but he WILL make you suffer if you cross him. Depending on the circumstances, he might then watch you writhe in misery for the satisfaction of it.

15) The Aloner: While Lucifer truly cares for a small group of people and even loves Mazikeen, it would cause the bile to rise up in his throat to admit strong attachment to anyone. Part of this is due to his overwhelming pride and his desire to never show weakness, never be controlled by anything or dependent on anyone. The other reason is that he's one of a set of equally powerful twin brothers that are second only to god and beyond pretty much everything else. While Lucifer is prideful, he not wrong in his believe that almost no one and nothing can relate to his experiences.

16) The Sociopath: While he is capable of some empathy, it's only for special cases like his own brother (who he views as an equal), Elaine Belloc (his niece, who also saved his life), Mazikeen (whom he genuinely loves, as much a someone like him can love), and a few others. The rest of the universe's population he sees as either tools or insects to be swatted if they get in his way.

17) Will Not Tell a Lie: Lucifer never lies. Sure he'll omit some details or use clever wordplay, but he doesn't really care enough to spare people's feelings on a topic and is so smart and powerful that he doesn't have much to fear from anyone if they react poorly to the truth. Elaine has even claimed that this quality is one of the things that makes the Devil so horrifying; he hides NOTHING.

If the Doom Slayer can bring about this form of ‘localized chaos’ in the first chapter alone… then imagine what he could do in The DCU‘s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” or “Infinite Crisis”.

To say nothing of providing the perfect multiverse ‘arena’ between the Doom Slayer and either the Icon of Sin or the Dark Lord, Davoth…

If Project Cadmus’ "Cloning Bullshit" were to come up due to 'inevitability' (for some reason)… then I MAY have a 'genius' suggestion so as to make the Light REGRET ever attempting to clone the DOOM SLAYER…

The conditions that would need to be followed (so as to not upset anyone, hopefully) are as follows:
1) The "Cloning Bullshit" incident shall only happen ONCE, and NEVER occurs AGAIN (plot-wise, where there was once a genetics research laboratory should become a CRATER in the aftermath… and the Light practice "Let Us Never Speak of This Again").
2) NO STRAGGLERS (ANY and ALL OTHER potential 'clones' of the Doom Slayer are to be COMPLETELY ERADICATED, in the very chapter they are to be introduced — NO EXCEPTIONS!)
3) IN THE END, THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE (CLONE) — more details in the following paragraph.

Say if Project Cadmus were to create only one 'successful' clone of the Doom Slayer (but are unable to replicate the Divinity Machine’s empowerment, leading to 'gory' results) — you would only have a human clone that serves no practical purpose, alongside its deformed, failure 'brothers'. Even 'potential' application as a 'sleeper agent' is unfeasible, given that the Doom Slayer has no known 'secret identity' in the Young Justice universe (and let’s not get started on the clone being unable to 'defend itself' once its 'cover' is compromised).

So? How do we make Project Cadmus backfire on the Light? Simple, and giving credit to "Godzilla vs. Kong"… HAVE THE DARK LORD DAVOTH 'HIJACK' THE CLONE BODY AND BRING ABOUT A SUPER GORE NEST! (It would be like how King Ghidorah had played everyone like 'Unwitting Pawns' while just a severed head, and after taking full control of Mechagodzilla, kills his 'creators' and resumes his genocidal rampage.)

And the words that ought to 'strike a chord' with the Doom Slayer, and give us a taste of "DOOM Eternal: The Ancient Gods"?

Dark Lord: "YOU FEEL YOU ARE PREPARED NOW, FOR THIS…?"

So, DaneNagai? Everyone else? What do you think about this suggestion? If you guys still aren’t so favourable about it, then I’ll end the discussion here, and will make no further attempts to bring it up. (I don’t fault anyone for this; I HATED what happened to the original Roy Harper in "Young Justice" with the same amount of vitriol for what the Skrulls did in "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes".)

P.S: I don’t understand why must the Doom Slayer 'bleed' though… haven’t you heard of the expression, "if it bleeds, we can kill it"? (I’d be upset to find out this were to apply for the Doom Slayer as well…)

Please don't clone Doomguy... Use his blood to poison demons or something please... I really don't want a second, inferior DoomSlayer.
6/15 c2 Asmalken
Great this book is
6/15 c1 Oshinobi Sensei
To 'TypicalRussianDude':
Relax, comrade; I know that there is this 'Sliding Scale of Gameplay and Story Integration' to account for…

The story right here is still in its initial stage — there is STILL opportunity to rewrite (or even remove) any plot holes/plot points that strongly 'disservice' the DOOM lore and the Doom Slayer’s prowess.

Otherwise, we just wait and see how it all plays out…
6/14 c1 1TypicalRussianDude
Response to "Oshinobi Sensei"

Problem with the "Glass Cannon" you spoke of...
They can kill him/actually hurting him in a *Gameplay.*
Lorewise, even after knocking him out with the temple & removing his armor, *they could not Kill him.* only imprison him for a time being.
6/14 c2 TypicalRussianDude
Good start, but he does feel kind of nerfed (at least there is two complains)

1) Doomguy was known trough the lands of Argenta for fighting no matter the injuries he got (the DOOM community itself remembers him as the guy who keeps going after taking a fucking rocket to the face) Even before he became a Primordial and got that "nearly impervious to any damage" armor that speeds up his healing by absorbing Argent Plasma from the environment (if there is no energy for that though, natural healing should start doing it's magic, considering what sort of a being he is).

Shortly, he would've keept on fighting while choking on his own blood 'till the healing does it's job. Charitably or not, the helmet removal wasn't necessary.

2) It's really odd how batman was able to kick a shotgun off the Doomguy's hands.
While Batman is a skilled tactician and a fighter, you can't expect a top of human strength to do anything to a being that rips out the spinal cords and kicks out the heads off it's opponents like it's a walk in the park or something (nevermind Berserker state).

A being that could actually tackle Superman (apart from Kryptonite, his other weakness is magic... Some of his weapons use a weaponized form of a magical element from Hell that was purified, his own strength is (kind of) supernatural & he himself uses that said element from Hell on his own body once in a while)

Aside from these minor (just lengthy) details, it was a good start, really.
