Secret Demigods: 11 Superheroes & Villains You Never Knew Had Gods For Parents

We know Thor and Wonder Woman are children of Gods. But did you know there are a lot more demigods than Marvel & DC would want you to know?

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler is the son of Mystique and Azazel, a Demon God from the Brimstone dimension. Mystique abandoned Nightcrawler when he was just a child, forcing Azazel to rescue him and hand him over to a fortune teller. Kurt Wagner spent most of his life in a circus. He was the star attraction of the circus’ freak show, something that scarred him for life.

King Shark

Yep!! the goofy shark man-child is actually the descendant of a God. King Shark‘s origins lay in the folklore of Nanaue of Hawaii. No one ever believed the fact that King Shark’s blood line is tainted with the blood of a God. This two legged sea creature is the son of the King of all Sharks aka the Shark God of Hawaiian legend. It is even revealed later that King Shark does what he does because of his father. If it were up to him, he would have left the path of a villain a long time ago.

Moon Knight

Moon Knight may not look like it but he actually has a God as a parent. Powered by the power of Khonshu, Moon Knight possesses the powers of a Celestial Heliopolis God. Some theories claim he might have a reincarnated version of Khonshu, the Egyptian Moon God, powering his abilities.

Cable

Cable is an Omega Level Mutant himself. His powers are so great because he is the son of an actual cosmic deity that protects the multiverse. His father – Scott Summers, is a gifted strategist and leader. His mother – Jean Grey, harbors the Phoenix Force, an entity that destroys entire civilizations with a single flick.

Marvel Girl

Valeria Richards is the daughter of Sue Storm aka Invisible Woman and Victor Von Doom in another alternate reality. In this timeline, Doctor Doom has actually become a God, with the entire world turned into a cult that worships him as a deity. in this world, the people believe it was Doctor Doom that created the universe. Valeria Richards has a mind said to be sharper than Reed Richards’.

Vincent Von Doom

In Earth-9811 during the Secret wars arc, Doctor Doom fell in love with the Enchantress, an Asgardian Goddess with access to powerful magic. Together they had a child. Vincent Von Doom inherits his father’s indomitable will and presence along with his mother’s legendary arcane abilities. Despite his vast magical prowess, Vincent was exceedingly arrogant, forcing doom to cast him out of his dimension forever.

Raven

Raven is a child of a human and a demon. Her father is Trigon is a hellish conqueror of realms. He intended to use Raven as a vessel to allow Trigon’s forces to invade the planet. Raven remains aloof and numbs her emotions because she does not want to give into her inner demons which would end up unleashing her father on the blue planet.

Tyrant

Galactus created Tyrant because he was feeling lonely. The artificially created living entity had the same abilities as his creator. Tyrant could use comic energy for devastating effects just like Galactus. But power corrupted Tyrant, who decided to usurp his father’s throne. The father and son had a legendary fight which Galactus almost lost. In the end, the Devourer of Worlds destroyed his creation and switched to mindless slaves before he met the Silver Surfer.

Mephisto

Mephisto claims that his origin came about from the death of a fallen God. The entity that created him itself had no concept of good or evil. So whatever Mephisto does, he believes to be the right thing. For years, the Lord of Hell has made lives hell for the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. This Godlike being was born out of the hatred within the heart of a fallen God. He is unstoppable.

Blackheart

Blackheart was created by Mephisto. To do so, the Lord of Hell concentrated all negative energy humanity has ever generated and gave it a body and soul. Blackheart is not like his father. His moral compass somewhat points north although his methods are questionable. he rebelled against his father’s tyranny and held a girl hostage to force the Punisher, Wolverine and Ghost Rider to help him defeat Mephisto.

Jason

Jason is the son of Zeus and Wonder Woman’s brother. Born and raised in secrecy, Diana never even knew about Jason’s existence until the Darkseid War. Jason’s powers were equal to, even greater than the powers of Wonder Woman. Because of having Zeus as his father, Jason had the power of immortality, superhuman physical attributes, weather manipulation and generating enormous amounts of electricity from his body.
