Baron Samedi was one of the Pagan Deities who met at the Elysian Fields Hotel to try to work out a way to stop the Apocalypse. He was then killed by Lucifer. Baron was the Haitian loa (god-spirit) of the dead.
He was at the Elysian Fields Hotel, along with at least eight other deities from different cultures to talk about the Apocalypse and how to avert it, appearing as a well-dressed African-American male.
When Lucifer showed up in the hotel, Baron and other deities tried to fight him, but were subsequently slaughtered. Baron appeared to survive the longest, even aiming a punch at Lucifer before the latter caught his fist and ripped him to pieces off-screen.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Super Strength - Being a deity, he would have had superhuman strength. He was unafraid when going against Lucifer, a being that he knew was very strong, suggesting that he believed himself to be stronger than the latter and certainly stronger than humans. This arrogance, however, led to his death.
- Immortality - As a pagan deity, he did not age and could potentially live forever.
- Invulnerability - As a pagan deity, he could not be killed by conventional methods, but he could be killed by higher beings.
- His name, translated from the French, means Baron Saturday.
