Who is Lucifer in the Sandman?
Lucifer Morningstar is an eponymous comic book from Vertigo, part of DC Comics. This character is directly based on the lost angel. He is visually inspired by David Bowie, who is for the designer, asked by Neil Gaiman. The first official appearance was in Supermans Pal Jimmy Olsen #65, when Jimmy Olsen, in a dream, met a man called L., who he thinks is Lex Luthors ancestor and deals with him. The consequences are frightening, as he discovers that the man actually is the fallen angel Lucifer.
After that, the characters had been constantly modified, appearing in The Weird Mystery Tales #4, The Blue Devil #31, DC Special Series #8, to stop the naming of several different versions of Satan who appeared in different stories. Garth Ennis introduced a character considered a devil in the Constantine series, but in the season of Mists arc of Sandman, he had to change the character, known as the First of the Fallen.
In some stories, and as it is said that if Lucifer ruled Hell, Constantine wouldn’t need to worry because he would probably get bored and let him go, but the First of the Fallen was highly spiteful. For some reason, first of the Fall hated Lucifer, then that the real reason was for always losing his tempers.
Lucifer is well known for his appearance in the famous comedy Neil Gaiman, Sandman, where he participated in the Triumvirate of Hell, where he appeared in the Prelude and Nocturnes arc. After seasons of mists, he seems to be in more focus. When Lucifer is obliterated of his existence as Hellslord, she exempts alle demons and damned souls from Hell, closes its doors and gives the key to Dream of the Endless (the main character of the Sandman) to the same length as its predecessor, so as to take the key off if the possession of the key would have put him in bad shape.
While Hell will find itself in the hands of two angels, the drab angel of silence and Remiel, Lucifer retires from Earth, where he is made a pianist. A three-chapter miniseries called Morning Star Option was created, where heaven sends the angel Amenadiel to the work of Lucifer. Surely he must rid the old nameless gods, but heaven doesn’t want to participate directly in. As payment, Lucifer demands God a letter.
In his eponymous symphony of 75 chapters, Lucifer continued work in Lux, a symphonic piano character. The series focuses on philosophy and free-will discussions and shows how Lucifers travelled in a quest to get rid of human beings by God. Carey stated that the series is a little autobiographical, as well as the fallen angel often represents the author and sometimes humanity in the total.
His disciples always follow Lilim Mazikeen, a loving servant of her, and the recurring characters are Izanami, Tsukoyomi, Susano, Loki and Fenrir, angels like the Queen, Miguel, desermons and even some of the Endless such as Death, Fate and Dream, as well as other mystical entities.

The fact that Lucifer is considered to be the second most powerful character in the DC Universe, not only by his creator Yahweh, but by his brother Michael Demiurgos.
