Quote:A friend of mine collected Vertigo's Lucifer. I read a few, it was okay. I think he was more of a manipulator. But isn't he a character who's been around longer than the '80s?
While surely the concept of Lucifer predates the 80's the actual character with the ongoing comic book series was introduced in 1989 in Sandman #4.

That's what I was talking about. Non DC appearances, like Milton's Paradise Lost. I don't know if that discounts him for our purposes.
