reportedly active in the Distant Past, pre-Cataclysmic era, post-Hyborian era/BC era, 17th century AD, and modern era (presumably; plus all eras in between)
Creator: Unrevealed; apparently further augmented by Yahweh (the Abrahamic (Judeo-Christian-Islamic) god)
Possessors: Moses, N'Longa, Priests of
Bast, Solomon, Solomon Kane, Yussef of Hadji, unidentified "pre-Adamite" priests, unidentified Atlantean kings (see comments), unidentified Pharaohs
Aliases: Staff of Moses, Staff of Sulieman, ju ju staff, ju-ju stave, voodoo staff, voodoo stave, vudu stave
First Appearance: (Historical) Torah (Exodus 2:1);
(Robert E. Howard's stories) Weird Tales (August, 1930) "Hills of the Dead"
(Atlas) Bible Tales for Young Folks#3 (December, 1953);
(Marvel) Nova I#7 (March, 1977)
Powers/Abilities/Functions: Composed of a wood
that exists nowhere on Earth, the
staff has a cat's head on its top and on its side are carvings of
hieroglyphics more ancient than the pyramids. However, the staff has
appeared in various forms, with the top in various forms, from a simple
blunt staff to various feline forms (see comments).
Light in weight, it nonetheless seemed as hard as iron.
The staff is a powerful weapon of
magic and against magical creations. While even simple wood is
effective against a vampire when used to stake a vampire through the
heart, the staff is effective as a blunt weapon, at least against the
vampiric creatures he encountered in Africa.
The staff seemed to be most effective against demons, or at least one particular demon.
However, at least one vampire, Rosella
Carson, proved able to shatter the staff's shaft; whether she had some
innate resistance to its power or perhaps mid-shaft is a weak point.
The staff had no power beyond being a wooden staff against monstrous creatures of a non mystic nature.
Possessing the staff for a length of time gave its wielder an awareness of and ability to sense the occult.
Moses used the staff to part the red seas and then collapse them again on the Pharaoh and his soldiers.
Moses is shown turning the staff
into a large and powerful serpent (which could consume similarly formed
but smaller serpents formed by other sorcerers), although original
sources show this to be the Rod of Aaron.
N'Longa used the staff as a focus
to communicate telepathically and/or astrally across a distance with a
sleeping ally, to transfer his spirit into a host upon whom the staff
was placed; in the latter form, he could speak and use his own magical
N'Longa transferred his mind into
a corpse, which he could then reanimate and control. It is not revealed
whether N'Longa used the staff to perform this or not.

pommel was carved with a different design, although he had no idea what
the original figure was.
Preview#19/2 (fb) - BTS) <Millions of years ago> - "So many
million years ago that a man would shudder to count them," the staff
was held by strange pre-Adamite priests in the silent cities beneath the seas, and it had drawn from an
elder world of mystery and magic unguessed by humanity. These priests used
the staff to fight "the evil that was ancient when the Earth was young."

used his staff to part the Red Sea, then led the Israelites through to
the dry land on the other side.
Once again God influenced the Egyptians
leading them into the parted sea where he confused their horses. God
then ordered Moses to bring the sea back down, murdering Ramses II and
his whole army, who all drowned in the Red Sea.
The Israelites were
safe on dry land and singing while the Egyptians finally feared the
Israelites' God as they should because he was not a merciful God.

mighty ju ju stave that in times past had been the scepter of mighty
priests in fallen empires."
Kane ultimately slew the Akaana, but not before they
wiped out all the Bogondans. Kane's staff was little use against these
creatures, presumably indicating that they were, although monstrous,
not magical in origin.
Kane headed east, carrying his voodoo stave.

nature, and he asked Kane how he had gotten it, and then chided Hassim for
casting it away before discussing its legend.
irreverently noted that it hadn't saved the jews from captivity nor
Solomon from captivity. Advising Hassan that such mockery would come to
no good end, Yussef stated that he would keep the staff, and he warned
him not to hurt Kane.
That night, as Yussef again approached Kane and
spoke of the staff, Hassan mocked him as growing childish in his old
age. Yussef advised him that Solomon had wielded the staff against
demons in the very trail they followed.
When they discovered a stone
mausoleum, Hassan ignored Yussef's warnings, and he had it broken into
in hopes of looting the wealth of a sultan he thought might be buried
there. Instead, the mausoleum released an amorphous demon-creature that
slew Hassan; shrieking, Yussef dropped the staff and fled (it is
unrevealed if he escaped or was also slain).
Picking up the staff, Kane struck the creature in its center with it, mortally wounding
the creature; Kane then realized that this was a demon imprisoned by
King Solomon (son of David).
Kane thus appreciated that the staff was not a tool of black
magic, but rather a sword of good and light against inhuman evil. Using
the staff to force the creature's corpse back into its tomb, Kane freed
the slaves (their captors having fled), shouldered the staff and headed

Comments: Created by unidentified(?) writers of the Torah (which is largely the Old Testament in the Christian Bible);

REH version first adapted into the Marvel Universe by Roy Thomas, Alan Weiss, and the "Crusty Bunkers."
Kane receiving the voodoo staff in the Marvel Universe:
- I have a very
strong interest in the
Robert E. Howard characters in the Marvel Universe (Conan, Solomon
Kane, Kull, Bran Mak Morn, Red Sonja, etc.), however, while I've read
all of the Marvel Universe stories, I haven't read any of the original
stories beyond their Marvel adaptations, extrapolations, new stories,
etc. As a result, my interests are as they relate to the Marvel
Universe, and I'm less worried about things that evolve from and/or
retcon REH's material. Kind of like I'm OK with how Spider-Man has
evolved from Stan Lee's character over time, but even moreso, as REH's
stories are his own, and the Marvel versions are adaptations that don't
follow the originals 100%. And then there are hundreds of extrapolation
and new stories based on REH's mythos, but not derived directly from
- On that same note, as far as I've been told and that I can tell from my own research, the first Solomon Kane
story by REH, "Red Shadows" (August, 1928; incidentally, Kane is REH's
first published character) has Kane traveling to Africa, meeting
N'Longa, and departing without any reference to the legendary staff.
- REH's stories have N'Longa giving his "voodoo staff" to Kane in "Hills
of the Dead" (August, 1930). And then REH's "The Footfalls Within"
(September, 1930) is what details the staff as being the Staff of
- Without re-reviewing them for this profile (since the subject of
the profile is not in them AFAIK), the first Marvel adaptation of Red
Shadows, in Marvel Premiere#33-34 (12/1976 and 1/1977) follows REH's
story, and the first (AFAIK) Marvel adaptation of "Hills of the Dead,"
in Kull and the Barbarians#2 and 3 (May-September, 1975), shows N'Longa
giving the staff to Solomon Kane in that issue.
- However, the (Sword of) Solomon Kane mini-series ret-cons this for
- Solomon Kane#1 adapts Red Shadows, but shows Kane
returning to his ship after that adventure with the voodoo stave in his
- As far as I can tell, the Staff doesn't show up in Solomon Kane#2
or 3 (the latter of which adapts REH's "Blades of the Brotherhood");
presumably he has it stowed somewhere).
Staff of Solomon is shown on the cover of The (Sword of) Solomon
Kane#3, but not in the story.
- In SK#4, Kane specifically states the reason he is going to
Africa is to learn the secrets of the staff.
- There are parts of #4 where Kane
having the staff is important, such as with Ali-Ben Ar
questioning Kane’s beliefs for holding it, leading Kane to cast the staff away (only to reclaim it later).
- In SK#5, Kane has sought out N’Longa (and he
had the staff in the process of
doing so). When we see him with N’Longa, Kane has apparently brought
the staff back to N'Longa. They reminisce at how N'Longa had given him
the staff in their previous encounter, and N’Longa again gives Kane the
voodoo staff and tells him he had given it to him to keep and it is
his. And then he
tells him how to use it to summon him.
- Again, I don’t know why it was retconned as it was, but it was. And so that's the Marvel Universe version.
- However, now that Marvel has the rights to REH material again,
who knows if the new stories will reference any of the past
material...but that's all easily explained via Secret Wars Earth-616 /
Prime Earth shenanigans. The REH stuff in Marvel in the 1970s-1990s is
Earth-616, and the recent stories are Prime Earth. If they fit
- My expectation is the new stuff will strictly follow
REH's material initially, and then evolve and/or retcon, just like any
ongoing fictional work...
Based on Kane's being gifted the "voodoo stave"
at the end on the Red Shadows storyline, Kane would presumably have
staff in Savage Sword of Conan#171/2 (which precedes Solomon Kane#2),
Savage Sword of Conan#18/2, 19/2, 22/2 (which precede Dracula
Lives#3/3), Savage Sword of Conan#25/2-26/2, 34/2, 37/2, 39/2, 62/2,
33/2 (which is adapted in Solomon Kane#3), Savage Sword of Conan#162/2,

Conan#83/4 (which precedes SSoC#20/2).
As pointed out by Wolfram Bane: Exodus
4:2 was the first reference to the Staff of Moses. Exodus 7:9 was the first
reference to Aaron's Rod. The staff and rod were often conflated with one
another; for example, it was Aaron who transformed his rod into a snake, rather
The Staff of Moses and the
staff held by Solomon Kane appeared in various forms, from looking like
an ordinary walking staff, to having various cat-head tops, some more
round and realistic, some more angular. It may have changed in
appearance over time, since it was held by the priests of Bast before
Moses received it, it would make sense that it received the cat-head
form before Moses had it, but it is consistently shown as a plain
walking staff in the hands of Moses. The simple explanation is that
only writers/artists involved with Solomon Kane stories depicted it
with the cat head, or just chalk it up to artistic license. Perhaps
Moses (or Yahweh) magically altered it to remove (or at least
mystically cloak) the cat's head. And then perhaps N'Longa's mystic
ties reverted it back.
"Strange pre-Adamite priests in
the silent cities beneath the seas." Pre-Adamite refers to existing
before the time of the Biblical Adam,
and we know in the Marvel Universe there were many Elder Races that
existed on Earth before the rise of humanity. This race is described as
having fought evil "so
million years ago that a man would shudder to count them." Since
Atlantis sank in 18,000 BC, these Priests were from WAY before that, in
another undersea city. And they were "strange," possibly indicating not
quite human in appearance, or perhaps referring to behavior, customs,
magic, etc. which would seem strange to civilizations in the last few
Any thoughts on what that race might be?
An "evil that was old when the Earth that was
young" could mean a lot of things, but an easy target would be the Old
The "Nameless Atlantean kings" is
an interesting reference. It could refer to either pre-Cataclysmic,
surface Atlantis, or post-Cataclysmic undersea Atlantis. I would think
it unlikely that these kings were not actually unnamed, but rather that
their identities were not well known to the outside world millennia
later , or at least not known by the otherwise knowledgeable Yussef of
Iron-Bound books typically
reference texts to ancient to be in book form, as the basic technology
to create a book didn't exist...so the pages were held together with
rings of iron.
The dinosaurs in the mists seen in Africa by
Solomon Kane may be the same as those in Wakanda's Serpent Valley. Or
Some discussion/extrapolation by Markus Raymond:
In the times of pharaohs it came in
possession of priests of Bast, an offspring of Gaea's son Ammon Ra.
Because she had been active since the Hyborian era, it is possible her
followers from that era had gained possession of the staff and took it
to Egypt where Bast was mainly worshipped (before becoming the patron of Wakanda as the Panther God).
Moses probably took the staff from the Egyptian priests of Bast. The
Judeo-Christian God probably increased the staff's power. He possibly
was the one influencing Moses to take the staff in the first place (maybe Moses used his position as step-son of Sethos' daughter to gain access to the staff).
After Moses' death it was used by kings of Israel/Samaria and Judah. It
was spoken of by Mohammed and was used by Solomon to fight off magicians and
wizards (it was renamed after him as the Staff of Solomon).
Presumably in the 16th century the staff was found in Judea by African
shaman N'Longa, who gave it, without knowing much of its power, to
Puritan adventurer Solomon Kane in 1595, who used it to communicate
with N'Longa over long distances and to fight monsters, the undead and
Note the staff also appears the the newer Fantastic Four
Grand Design #1, an alternate reality retelling when the Sphinx fought Moses. It also stated
Sphinx was a surviving Atlantean and served Rama-Tut, but this is in text only,
thus the Egyptian pharoah Sphinx served when he faced Moses (confirmed as Moses
in the Appendix) was still probably Ramses II rather than Rama-Tut.
Staff of Solomon in other media:
The Staff of Solomon is also known as the Staff of
Kings and was the focus of the video game Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, wherein Nazis and Indiana Jones tried to get their hands on it.
Fun fact: At DC the
Staff of Moses was one of four artifacts granting powers to Global
Guardians member Seraph (Chaim Lavon).
Profile by Snood.
The Staff of Solomon
- should be distinguished from:
- STAFF of the CREATOR - wielded by Adam K'admon--Man-Thing III#3
- STAFF of IBIS - Wielded by Karanthes, channeled power
of Ibis (Thoth), allowed banishment of demons and other magical feats--Marvel Feature I#6
- STAFF of ONE - wielded by Nico Minoru (and her
parents before that), powered by mystic being dwelling within it. Able
to cast virtually any spell, but only one time each--Runaways I#1
- STAFF of POLAR POWER - wielded by Nebulos--Strange Tales I#151
- ROD of AARON
- wielded by Moses' brother Aaron; thrown down before Pharaoh Ramses II
and transformed into snake, consuming those snakes similarly formed by
Ramses' priests; in the Marvel Universe, it may be that it is the same
as the Staff of Moses--Torah: Exodus: 7: 9
- other staffs, rods, etc.
