    presumably born in Otherplace

Education: Extensive self-education in black magic via studying Belasco's principal book of sorcery

First Appearance: X-Factor I#32 (September, 1988)

Powers/Abilities: Possessing a natural affinity for wielding magical forces and a gifted intelligence, and having mastered all the spells in Belasco's principal book of sorcery, N'astirh is a powerful sorcerer.

    His magic is much more powerful in a mystic realm like limbo/Otherplace than in a more mundane realm like Earth, where magic has much more resistance.nastirh-demon-xterm2

    Amongst the magical feats he has demonstrated are:

    Weakening the dimensional barrier between Earth and the limbo realm Otherplace, making it easier to open and maintain dimensional boundaries and to allow the magic from Otherplace to affect Earth.
    Via a spell involving 13 mutant infants placed into a pentagram, he was able to hold open a portal being Otherplace and Manhattan, New York.

    Presumably via the weakened barrier between Otherplace and Manhattan, in the event known as Inferno, he transformed the city into a more demonic condition, with inanimate objects coming to malevolent life and assaulting humanity and other living beings.

    Humans and others were further affected/corrupted somewhat by this magical influence.

    The Empire State building grew markedly in stature while taking on a more gothic appearance. Its peak served as N'astirh's ultimate base on Earth

    He can transform technological weapons into magical weapons.

    N'astirh can transform human beings into demonic creatures with a touch, usually by apparently feasting on that person, devouring everything "good" within him or her.

    He can grant magical powers to others, such as the Bodeyman (Douglas Carmody) and Cameron Hodge.

    He could also bond a demon with a human such as he did with the Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale).

    He can project multiple forms of magical energy, such as destructive bolts.

    He can change size and alter his form to some extent.

    Backed by the power of a mystic temple atop the Empire State Building, created by the Goblin Queen, he could extend mystic tendrils from the building strong enough to restrain Colossus, as well as monstrous faces that dripped acid potent enough to burn Colossus' steel form.

    He is limited in his ability to directly utilize technology, which is damaged by his touch and which pains him in return.

    N'astirh has superhuman strength, lifting somewhere between 800 lbs. and 25 tons; although he may have accomplished greater than that when enhanced by magic and/or the transmode virus).

    The large wings on N'astirh's back allow him to fly at sub-sonic speeds and to carry unspecified weights (certainly at least a couple adult human).

    N'astirh also has has superhuman durability, agility, reflexes, and stamina, and he is an experienced fighter.

    After being transformed into living circuitry by the transmode virus, he was immune to conventional injury, being able to reconsititute himself after apparent destruction. He could mimic the functions of any machine, and he could more readily alter his conformation, forming holes in his body to allow assaults to pass harmlessly through. He could also infect others, turning them into living circuitry, the energy of which he could then drain into himself, typically terminating the victim.

    While a techno-organic being, intense cold lowered the resistance within his living circuitry and allowing him to function like a super-conductor at ultimate efficiency. Conversely, extreme heat had the opposite effect, causing agonizing quantum resistance; and being super-heated after being super-cooled caused a destructive overload.

Height: Variable (often 8' to 15' tall)
Weight: Variable
Eyes: Usually solid red or glowing yellow (sometimes red irides with yellow sclera)
Hair: Red (formerly green; his hair changed color with his form)
Skin: Variable (typically green; sometimes red, such as when transformed by transmode virus)


(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#5: N'astirh entry) - The demon N'astirh originally inhabited the timeless "limbo" dimension Otherplace that was ruled by Belasco.

(New Mutants I#71 (fb) - BTS) - N'astirh was scorned by Belasco for apprenticeship as Belasco wished a human student and thought demons only good for servants.

(Uncanny X-Men I#160 (fb) - BTS) - After a group of X-Men traveled to Otherplace and ultimately were trapped there while sending the young Illyana Rasputin home, diverging Earth-8280, that reality's Storm (Ororo Munroe) became Belasco's servant.nastirh-demon-newmut71-savepastillyana

(New Mutants I#71 (fb) - BTS / Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#5: N'astirh entry) - When the young Illyana Rasputin of Reality-616 was trapped in the demonic limbo realm Otherplace, a resentful N'astirh -- who also knew, via precognitive magic, what Illyana would become and that she would prove useful to him in the future -- attacked Belasco's principal demonic servant, S'ym, to prevent him from killing Illyana. The two battled fiercely.

(New Mutants I#71 (fb) - BTS) - Presumably before the 13-year-old Magik (Illyana Rasputin) of Earth-616 defeated Belasco, N'astirh stole Belasco's main book of spells.

    N'astirh then traveled into the past and used his natural affinity for magic to master all of the spells in the book.

(New Mutants I#71) - Via precognitive magic, N'astirh summoned the modern day Magik and the New Mutants (Cannonball, Gossamyr, Mirage, Sunspot, Warlock, Wolfsbane) through Otherplace to his side.

    He told them of S'ym's massing an army to invade Earth, and he advised Magik to reclaim the Soulsword -- which he noted she had rejected as it was the darkest, most powerful piece of her soul -- and accept its dark power, using it to save her friends and then to return to and save Earth. N'astirh further suggested that someday in the future, Magik might return to him as his dark bride.

    After Magik teleported away to confront S'ym, Crotus asked why he was helping Magik, who rivaled his power, N'astirh smacked Crotus away, noting that he -- like S'ym -- lacked understanding. While S'ym sough to kill Magik, N'astirh sought to use her and to benefit from her need to choose good over evil.

(Magik#4 - BTS / ) - Within Otherplace, Magik overthrew Belasco, but as she spent more time on Earth, Otherplace fell under S'ym's control, aided by his infection/transformation by the transmode virus.

(X-Terminators#1 (fb) - BTS) - Within Otherplace, S'ym summoned N'astirh regarding his plot to use the Soulsword to access Earth.

(Fantastic Four I#324 (fb) - BTS) - N'astrih apparently encountered Necrodamus as he passed through Otherplace, considering him an inconsequential wanderer.

nastirh-demon-xterm1(X-Terminators#1) - N'astirh emerged from a cavern alongside his Nasteris, demanding to know who had summoned him and why, and he mocked S'ym, noting that the Soulsword locked limbo to Magik and kept it safe from S'ym, who would steal it for himself. When S'ym punched N'astirh in the face, noting that he planned to rule this dimension and beyond, N'astirh morphed into a larger, more powerful form and rushed S'ym, warning him that those who risked what petty power they possessed in a play for more risked losing it all.

    Smashing N'astirh to the ground, S'ym noted that he had already gathered power, and each time the Darkchilde (Magik) took her sword, his power grew. When S'ym warned N'astirh that threatening him or his plans would result in him losing his life, N'astirh noted that his magicks protected him from his transmode virus; S'ym countered that his power was greater still.

    Letting up the defeated N'astirh, S'ym instructed him to find and steal thirteen power-filled babies (beings of both purity and great potential power) and to bring them to the chosen place (Manhattan's Times Square) for the performance of his rite and the attainment of his purpose: the sacrifice of the infants would allow S'ym to hold open the mystic portal to allow his demonic hordes to invade and conquer Earth.

    When the Soulsword vanished, S'ym noted that the Darkchilde had taken it and left the door to the realm unlatched. N'astirh's servant Crotus asked if he was going to let S'ym send him away and noted that he hadn't even tried to fight him, and N'astirh silenced him with his voice and his fist, telling him that he had his own reasons and his own aspirations concerning this invasion of Earth.

(X-Factor I#32 (fb) - BTS) - Using rituals based on the notes of 15th century (see comments) mystic Belasco -- to which his anti-mutant organization, the Right, had access -- commander Cameron Hodge contacted limbo (Otherplace) demon N'astirh via a sub-basement of an immense Chicago skyscraper.

(X-Factor I#32) - Appearing to Hodge via a computer screen, N'astirh noted how unusual was a summons from the Earthly plane, and he acknowledged Hodge's explanation of using Belasco's notes. When Hodge offered N'astirh his sould in exchange for power to use against his enemies, N'astirh told him that they already had his soul. N'astirh counter-offered power in exchange for Hodge's aid in gathering infants of power and purity, which he had been ordered to acquire by the one he served (S'ym). When Hodge told him of an orphanage specializing in mutant children, N'astirh agreed to protect Hodge from total destruction at his enemy's hand in exchange for the orphange's location.

(Power Pack I#40) - Having captured Katie Power and Rebecca Littlehale, the Bogeyman (Douglas Carmody) communicated with N'astirh via his computer, offering to sell him the two children. N'astirh agreed to pay their weight in gold if they were children of power, but that they must be both pure and infants. N'astirh noted that the dark-haired one (Rebecca) was too old, but that the blonde (Katie) was of some small interest, as his N'asteris had informed him that they had utilized her before. As the rest of Power Pack and some of the New Mutants (Cannonball, Magik,  Mirage, Sunspot, Warlock, Wolfsbane) battled Carmody and his robots, Carmody asked if N'astirh was interested in them, and the amused demon asked if he might consider holding a surplus sale.

    After Magik banished Carmody to limbo (Otherplace), N'astirh considered that, as the young heroes were too old for his purposes, he would have to travel to Earth to personally oversee the collection of the infants if S'ym's plan was to succeed, and his own through S'ym.

(Power Pack I#42) - In limbo, N'astirh greeted Carmody, mockingly asking if his arrival meant that he was unable to acquire the children as per their bargain and noting that they would need to make alternate arrangements. Noting his goals of ruling limbo, N'astirh offered that Carmody could aid him by becoming one of his minion...but first he would have to chew away anything human. As Carmody screamed, N'astirh admitted that he did taste rather greasy.

(Power Pack I#42 (fb) - BTS) - N'astirh mutated Carmody into grotesque demonic form and power.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#5: N'astirh entry) - N'astirh awakened the powers and the dark side of Madelyne Pryor's personality, leading her to become the Goblin Queen.

(Avengers I#306 (fb) - BTS) - N'astirh met with other demons, including Cha'sa'dra (god of the Lava Men), convincing them to participate in a war against the surface world.

(Uncanny X-Men I#236) - As Madelyne Pryor was held prisoner in Genosha, N'astirh communicated with her via communicator screen. When she instructed him, "later," he noted that her slightest wish was his command, and he exploded the screen.


(X-Terminators#1) - N'astirh, Crotus, and the N'asteris arrived in a cemetery outside Manhattan (but with the city visible from its location; see comments), and N'astirh noted how Earth's ambient life energy -- even in a repository for the dead -- enriched his power. As he considered this an appropriate base from which to begin their work. When the groundskeeper (?) Bill investigated, N'astirh had his N'asteris capture him, and N'astirh transformed Bill into a demon-form, and which N'astirh sent demon-Bill to join the N'asteris in seeking the thirteen infants of power and purity and bringing them to him. When the N'asteris didn't understand what infants were, N'astirh explained that they were human, like Bill, but were smaller, with relatively large heads and no hair.

(X-Terminators#1 - BTS) - Misunderstanding N'astirh's instructions, the N'asteris captured the large-headed, bald, young mutants Artie Maddicks and Leech. nastirh-demon-xterm3-demonize

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update '89#5: N'astirh entry) - N'astirh began casting spells to weaken the dimensional barrier between Eartn and Otherplace and also to transform Manhattan into a more demonic counterpart.

    The transformation of Manhattan became known as "Inferno," most notable for previously inanimate objects coming to life, developing sinister personalities, and attacking humans.

(X-Terminators#2) - N'astirh communicated with Hodge, noting he would recall his creatures but if all was as Hodge said it was, he would keep his promise: Hodge would not die, and his organization would prosper.

    As the N'asteris delivered Artie and Leech to N'astirh in his cemetery base, they disrupted N'astirh's communication, and he chastised them. He then noted that he would use spells of communication and acquisition from Belasco's book of spells as the template by which he would create his kingdom on Earth. However, he noted that Earth's ether was dense, and magicks required more finesse, effort, and time; he further noted that he needed time to contact those who would be his allies and those he would exploit and to twist S'ym's plots to his own ends.

    When Crotus showed Artie and Leech to N'astirh, he furiously informed them that they were too big to be children, and he denounced their incompetence. Initially N'astirh believed that only Leech had power, but when the two were separated, Artie's powers manifested and he projected a message of their whereabouts and situation to the mutants Boom-Boom, Rusty Collins, Rictor, Skids, and Wiz Kid, but Crotus returned him to Leech's proximity, neutralizing Artie's powers and disrupting the message.

(X-Terminators#2 - BTS) - Nonetheless, the mutant kids were able to identify the cemetery's location and headed toward it to rescue their friends.

(X-Terminators#2 - BTS) - The N'asteris continued their abductions, including little Timmy, son of Tim and Helen of Montebello, New York; Russell, apparently from Central Park, Manhattan; and two others.

(X-Terminators#2) - The N'asteris delivered the children to N'astirh and noted that Crotus was seeking out another non-baby mutant (Wiz Kid) who could help speed up N'astirh's spell-making; N'astirh denied their request to eat the infants.

    When Crotus delivered Wiz Kid to N'astirh, Wiz Kid (under duress) explained how the computer could be programmed to process information quickly to save N'astirh time.nastirh-demon-oha2zu2

(X-Factor I#34) - N'astirh projected his image to Hodge, suggesting that he had loved and worshipped Warren Worthington, and when Hodge denied this, N'astirh noted that he was clearly not dealing with a realist and asked if he needed to withdraw his support to elicit true cooperation. Hodge argued that they were cooperating, noting that he had transmitted to N'astirh the locations of the mutant children that the Right had marked for death, while his N'asteris assaulted Angel/Archangel/Death, who destroyed many of the demons.

    When N'astirh informed Hodge that those locations had not proven fruitful, as the infants on the list had disappeared and that he did not want the older children at the orphange, Hodge advised him that he could find the infants in the level below the basement. N'astirh mocked Hodge for his hypocracy in consorting with demons to exterminate human mutants. N'astirh then withdrew his N'asteris to check the orphanage sub-basement, but assured Hodge that if all was as he said it was, he would keep his promise: Hodge would not die, and the Right would prosper.

(X-Factor I#34 - BTS) - Ultimately Archangel decapitated Hodge after Hodge slew Worthington's lover Candy Southern.

(Uncanny X-Men I#239) - N'astirh apparently observed from the shadows as Mr. Sinister considered how the captive infant Nathan Summers would help him achieve his goals. N'astirh considered to himself that so many -- himself included -- sought to claim this tiny world as their own.

    N'astirh subsequently reported to Maddy Pryor via a viewscreen, noting to his "dread majesty" how the the sacred task proceeded apace and the grand design swiftly approached completion. As the first, faint sparks of Inferno had already manifested themselves, he noted that the Goblin Queen must be pleased. Maddy refuted this, noting he had yet to fulfill his end of the bargain: She wanted the Marauders found so the X-Men could punish them, and she wanted her son back. She warned him that if he failed, she would show him the true meaning of Inferno.

(X-Factor I#35 - BTS) - As Cyclops and Jean Grey returned to the Nebraska orphanage in which he was raised, with the goal of freeing Nathan Summers and the other mutant children imprisoned in the orphanage's basement, they were first assaulted by Nanny, Orphan-Maker, and the Lost Boys (and Girls) and then by the N'asteris. Ultimately Nanny escaped with the children.

(Uncanny X-Men I#240) - As Madelyne Pryor announced her intent to destroy Jean Grey while destroying the tombstone at her gravesite (which had been set following her presumed death), N'astirh appeared before her, seemingly shocked by her power, and telling her that all was proceeding as she had instructed. He further noted a most promising lead to Nathan Summers and had her accompany him to the Nebraska orphanage.

    Although Nathan was missing from his chambers, Madelyne was shocked to find evidence that she had been created as a replicant in this same facility.

(Uncanny X-Men I#241) - Along with the N'asteris, N'astirh stood behind Maddy as Sinister confronted her, asking his identity and being told that Sinister was Maddy's father. As Maddy attacked Sinister, N'Astirh noted that her power grew the more she used it, and he realized how dangerous she was.

    After Sinister chained Maddy, N'astirh seemingly teleported away. Watching from the shadows, N'astirh considered that her being brought so low made her a better pawn.

    N'astirh subsequently traveled back outside, subdued Longshot and cast him down to the X-Men after they had defeated the Marauders. Shrugging off a blast from Havok, N'astirh threatened to devour their souls, noting that Madelyne's would be the tastiest of all nastirh-demon-uxm241-cover.jpg

(X-Terminators#3) - N'asteris captured two NYPD officers investigating the graveyard and brought them to N'astirh's mausoleum base.

    After Crotus had Wiz Kid explain how computers could help improve his spells, N'astirh -- whose demonic touch caused the computers to explode -- mutated one of the police into demon-form and warned that Wiz Kid would be next if he didn't comply. Wiz Kid countered that such transformation might mess up his power, but when N'astirh threatened to demonize Leech and Artie Maddicks, Wiz Kid agreed to demonstrate his powers. He transformed a pair of guns into a laser blaster, which N'astirh then transformed into into a demonic blaster.

    N'astirh then ordered Wiz Kid to use his computer to help him simultaneously access and strengthen (and also check for accuracy) many spells in his book simultaneously. He intended to use this power to become ruler of the demonic kingdom on Earth that was coming.

    Wiz Kid agreed as long as Artie and Leech could be his assistants, and he instructed N'astirh that he needed to have his demons gather technology for him to use, and food for he and the other children. N'astirh did so, but when he sensed Wiz Kid was stalling, he allowed the N'asteris to devour the remaining policeman and warned Wiz Kid of a similar fate. As Taki worked, N'astirh continued to urge him forward, insisting that the master spell must be ready to implement by sunset.

(X-Factor I#36) - From his cemetery base, N'astirh considered how the transformation of Manhattan neared completion and his long range plan progressed nicely. He felt that when his N'asteris returned with Nathan, it would drive Madelyne into madness and she would "blow the lid off Manhattan."

    N'astirh subsequently appeared before Angel/Dark Angel/Archangel/Warren Worthington as he embraced the deceased form of Candy Southern, noting that it was he who had promised Hodge he would not die. As N'astirh taunted Worthington with the darkness within him, Crotus interrupted, noting that the boy (Wiz Kid) had nearly finished the transformation that would facilitate his spell to unleash demons from Otherplace into Manhattan. N'astirh then departed, but Worthington vowed to head to Manhattan and destroy him.

(X-Terminators#3) - Noting he needed one more infant to channel the entrance spell and three more after that for final transformation, N'astirh considered that that problem was being solved.

    When N'astirh tried to operate the computer, Wiz Kid explained that it shorted out when a demon touched it, so N'astirh instructed Taki to type things in for him., threatening his friends to force his compliance.

    When Boom-Boom, Rusty Collins, Rictor, and Skids arrived  to fight the demons, N'astirh fought them, while other N'asteris returned with a needed infant and joined the fight. Leech unwittingly got too close to the others, neutralizing their powers and allowing the N'asteris to knock them out. Using them as hostages, N'astirh forced Taki to complete the spell to transport them to Manhattan's Times Square, after which the N'asteris placed the gathered mutant infants at the strategic places in the sky, forming an inverted pentagram

(New Mutants I#71 - BTS) - After Magik teleported herself and the New Mutants away to escape the Soul Sword-wielding S'ym in Otherplace, N'astirh, who had been remotely monitoring things, prevented Magik and the others from escaping to Earth.

(New Mutants I#71) - N'astirh mystically appeared before S'ym, warning him that had he killed Magik, it would have caused problems with their plans.

    Back on Earth, as Inferno-raged throughout Manhattan, causing normally inanimate objects to seemingly come to life and attack people, N'astirh laughed while viewing via a mystic globe after an elevator slew its passengers.

(New Mutants I#71 - BTS / X-Factor I#36 - BTS) - Magik confronted S'ym, noting that N'astirh had betrayed him and delivered him into her hands. She reclaimed the Souldsword, further mutating into demonic form, and then opened a stepping disc portal over Times Square.

(X-Terminators#3 / New Mutants I#71 - BTS) - N'astirh magically held the portal open, and demons began pouring through it.

(X-Terminators#4) - N'astirh stood atop a Manhattan building, taunting the humans below that the end of their world was at hand.

    When N'astirh agreed to allow Crotus to feed on Artie and Leech, Wiz Kid struck Crotus back and attempted to use his computer to undo the spells. Mocking him for having trusted a demon, N'astirh cast Wiz Kid to the ground.

(New Mutants I#71) - Arriving through the portal, N'astirh mocked that he had used Magik to get what he wanted and that it was his magic that held the portal open. When she accused him of betraying her, he acknowledged this: Though he truly loved her, he was nonetheless still a demon.

(Avengers I#300) - A Kang the Conqueror escaped the Time Bubble and arrived in the midst of the Inferno-affected Manhattan. He glimpsed N'astirh as the demon received reports that S'ym was about to leave limbo/Otherplace and that the Goblin Queen was preparing for the sacrifice.

    Klytis informed N'astirh of Franklin Richards who was contained within a powerful suit of armor and controlled by Nanny. N'astirh complimented Klytis, noting that they could always use another "dark childe," especially as it may allow him to better control the rebellious Goblin Queen. He further noted that S'ym was ultimately just a minor player in this event and he would end up an eternal prisoner of limbo.

    N'astirh then opened a mystic portal and abducted the inert Franklin while the Avengers (Captain America, Gilgamesh, Invisible Woman, Mr. Fantastic, Thor) were distracted, discussing the city's plight; escaping before the others could reach him, N'astirh introduced himself and told them that they would worship him.

    N'astirh returned to his base atop a Manhattan skyscraper (see comments). Realizing how powerful and dangerous Franklin was, N'astirh urged Klytis to swiftly remove his armor and secure the child, after which N'astirh placed Franklin within the demonic wall's concavities; there he noted that Franklin would sleep forever, a tool at their command, and the walls would draw off his power. He further noted that he would use that power to increase the power of the pentagram so they could move their armies to Earth in an instant.

    As he departed to address unfinished business with S'ym, N'astirh instructed Klytis to watch Franklin closely: Once Frankin's energies had been fully subsumed by the walls, Klytis was to open a sympathetic pentagram to allow Franklin's energies to be directed into it.

(New Mutants I#72) - As N'astirh attempted to convince Magik to embrace her demonic heritage, S'ym arrived and grabbed her. N'astirh swatted Magik away, reminding that she was his by their agreement, but S'ym noted that their agreement was over, and he punched Nastirh back. When N'astirh fired a blast at him, S'ym opened up his mid-section allowing the blast to pass through him and stun Magik instead. Teleportating Magik away via a disc to keep her away from S'ym, N'astirh noted that that maintaining the transport disc between the realms and the pentagram required much of his power, but he warned S'ym that this would not always be the case. nastirh-demon-newmut72-transmode

(Avengers I#300 - BTS) - Ultimately, the Avengers reached Franklin, and the Invisible Woman formed a field to block his energies from being pulled into the sympathetic pentagram.

(X-Terminators#4) - With N'astirh away, Artie unplugged the computer, disrupting the spells maintaining the pentagram and holding the other X-Terminators. Although Crotus replaced the plug (severely burning himself in the process), the X-Terminators escaped, fighting past the N'asteris.

    Wiz Kid created ships for the other X-Terminators, allowing them to pluck the babies from the pentagram, although the N'asteris recovered Taki and brought him back to N'astirh.

(New Mutants I#72) - As the New Mutants joined the X-Terminators plucked the babies from the pentagram despite the efforts of the N'asteris, S'ym assaulted the weakened N'astirh.

(X-Terminators#4) - N'astirh magically forced Wiz Kid to use the computer to enhance his spells, trapping S'ym in a mystic...volcanic eruption-like power burst. Unable to resist N'astirh's commands, Taki was able to add one keystroke, multiplying the assault so that N'astirh was affected as well. Injured, N'astirh had rock grow over Taki's head

(X-Terminators#4/New Mutants I#72) - Realizing that he could not operate his computers in his current form, N'astirh allowed S'ym to infect him with the transmode virus. Possessing a greater will, however, N'astirh was able to drain S'ym's energy, rather than the reverse as S'ym had planned. N'astirh then bonded with and began controlling the computer, but Taki then reverted the computer back to normal (removing his enhancements), and causing it to explode at his demonic touch.

(New Mutants I#72) - Although the pentagram faded, N'astirh's techno-organic power allowed him to recover, and the transformed N'astirh confronted Magik anew. After she transformed herself into an armored form to mirror her Soulsword and struck N'astirh with the sword, N'astirh reformed and -- as he teleported away --  suggested that after the arriving S'ym had dealt with her, she might accept a union with N'astirh.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#147) - Having been repeatedly thwarted by Spider-Man (and recently Harry Osborn), Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale) approached the Inferno-transformed Empire State Building and requested an audience with the demon master.

    N'astirh then appeared, instructing Hobgoblin to amuse him. N'astirh was initially annoyed with Macendale, but when Macendale offered his soul, N'astirh laughed out loud, asking why he would want such a dirty soul. Amused nonetheless, N'astirh granted Hobgoblin a demonic nature and powers by merging him with an unidentified limbo demon. nastirh-demon-specspdm147

(X-Factor I#37) - N'astirh rejoined the N'asteris, who delivered to him the infant Nathan Summers and then swarmed over X-Factor to prevent his interference.

(Uncanny X-Men I#241) - After Maddy broke free of and challenged Sinister anew, N'astirh appeared and delivered her son, Nathan, to her.

(New Mutants I#73) - N'astirh teleported to confront the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle (Emma Frost, Magneto/Max Eisenhardt, Selene, Sebastian Shaw) offering a truce to combine their efforts for world domination. After N'astirh offered the resources of limbo, Magneto noted that his student Magik ruled limbo, N'astirh informed him that this was no longer the case and that she and S'ym would destroy themselves, allowing him (N'astirh) to rule both limbo and Earth.

(New Mutants I#73 - BTS) - From limbo, Magik sacrificed her current existence (being replaced with an alternate younger self that hadn't experienced 7 years in limbo) to close the portal to limbo after pulling S'ym, the N'asteris, and the other demons back into the demon realm.

(New Mutants I#73) - Both lamenting and mocking Magik's "transformation," N'astirh considered his plans to rebuild the bridge to limbo with young Nathan and Maddy/Goblin Queen, noting that before the sun next rose both Earth and limbo would be his.

(X-Factor I#37) - With the transformed Grey parents before him, N'astirh observed as Maddy, the Goblin Queen, confronted X-Factor. However, when she attempted to destroy Jean Grey, N'astirh stepped in front of her and blocked the blast. When the Goblin Queen angrily attacked him, N'astirh convinced her that he could still be useful in advising her and that he could arrange an ever greater final confrontation between them; he sought to raise the Empire State Building into the Heavens and sacrifice Nathan therein to blast a hole to limbo/Otherplace and beyond.

(Fantastic Four I#324) - As Necrodamus battled the Fantastic Four, N'astirh confronted him, briefly stopping time and ordering him not to interfere in his current efforts. Necrodamus assured N'astirh that he sought only to serve such as him in the most effective manner possible, and he swore to devote the powers he might gain from Mantis' death to N'astirh's triumph in this and all future wars on humanity.

    N'astirh glared at Necrodamus and asked, "You wouldn't lie to me, would you?" but eventually gave Necrodamus his blessing before vanishing.

(Fantastic Four I#324 - BTS) - Necrodamus' efforts were nonetheless thwarted when the Human Torch (Johnny Storm) disrupted the cosmic alignment of planets needed for his spell.

(Excalibur I#6) - After Rachel Summers of Earth-811, aka Phoenix, flew to Manhattan to rescue her "brother," Nathan Christopher, she fell under the influence of Inferno and was trapped in manikin form.

(Excalibur I#6) - When Rachel's teammates in Excalibur flew in to help Rachel, Meggan's empathic powers also caused her to fall under the influence of Inferno, Nastirh transformed her into his Goblin Princess. nastirh-demon-ux242-carriage

(Uncanny X-Men#242) - As the X-Men and X-Factor fought over misunderstandings presumably exacerbated by Inferno tensions, N'astirh materiaized by Maddy's side, knocking back Cyclops and Havok as they fought against her. He then summoned a carriage drawn by demonic horses, picked up Maddy and departed; while Cyclops assisted Jean Grey against an attacking demon, Havok grabbed the chariot and rode along with it in hopes of saving Maddy. When they arrived at the transformed Empire State Building, Maddy named Havok her Goblin Prince and brought him with her into the building.

    Atop the building, N'astirh announced how Maddy's dread energies, amplified by the soul essences of the human lives absorbed into the building's structure, would create an eternal bridge between Earth and his limbo realm so that demonkind would rule the world. As he urged Maddy of the critical timing of the master spell, she reminded him that she was in charge. While secretly considering his desire to crack her accursed bones, N'astirh asked her forgiveness while reminding her that the enchantment must be cast by dawn or all that had transpired that goblin night would be wiped away and the world restored to the way it was. With a snap of her fingers, Maddie transformed the summit to a demonic temple with a sacrificial altar, shocking N'astirh as not even his power could accomplish such a feat. At N'astirh's reminding, Maddy had her pets (the Greys) bring forth the infant Nathan Christopher as a  sacrifice.nastirh-demon-ux242-overloaded

    As Nathan called out to Jean for assistance, N'astrirh noted that creation wasn't big enough for both Jean and Maddy, and Maddy insisted Jean die before she performing the master spell. N'astirh then confronted Jean who was aided by Storm, but they found his techno-organic body absorbed lighting bolts and his form proved to malleable for telekinetic restraint. When Angel/Archangel launched numerous blades at him, N'astirh formed a hole in his torso, allowing the blades to pass harmlessly through him and to strike and stun both Jean and Storm. N'astirh flew to touch the women, infect them with the transmode virus, and enslave them, but Rogue reached them first and cast them to Angel and Beast, respectively before confronting N'astirh herself.

    Having previously absorbed power from the Technarch Magus, Rogue proved able to absorb N'astirh's power with impunity. After Maddy had Havok blast away Colossus (who had scaled the building), Iceman created an icesled that redirected Colossus to smash into N'astirh from behind. Colossus' steel form and noble soul agonized N'astirh, who then teleported back atop the Empire State Building, warning the mutants that a battle was not the war.

    As Maddy chastised N'astirh for failure, Cyclops and Storm launched Colossus at the temple, but -- backed by the power of the temple -- N'astirh had the building generate tendrils to restrain him while monstrous faces dripped acid the burned his armored body. Wolverine, launched soon after by Archangel, slashed N'astirh from behind, and Dazzer blasted Colossus' restraints, freeing him. Iceman then covered N'astirh and much of the building in ice, but N'astirh found that the intense cold lowered the resistance within his living circuitry, enabling him to function like a super-conductor at near ultimate efficiency. As N'astirh switly processed spells, Iceman brought him to near ultimate zero, after which Colossus shattered the ice. N'astirh prepared to thank them with a swift death, but soon found that Storm had generated equatorial heat and humidity that created quantum resistance within his circuitry, agonizing him. Storm then blasted N'astirh with a series of lightning bolts that overloaded his circuitry, causing backfires. N'astirh begged for mercy and vowed to save Storm before exploding and seemingly perishing.

(Excalibur I#7 - BTS) - Gaining Magik's Soulsword following Illyana's replacement with her younger self, Shadowcat used it to purge Meggan of N'astirh's influence, eliminating her Goblin Princess persona. Similarly, Nightcrawler used N'astirhs mystic tome (which Crotus had stolen), to free Rachel Summers/Phoenix from her mannikin spell.

(Uncanny X-Men#242) - Following the defeat and apparent deaths of N'astirh and the Goblin Queen, Manhattan reverted to its previous existence, whith most of the population losing their memories of the events and/or believing the events to have been a mass hallucination.

(Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z Update#2) - N'astirh reconstituted himself, free of the transmode virus.nastirh-demon-nxm38-magik-servant

(New X-Men I#38) - After a group of young X-Men-in-training -- Anole/Victor Borkowski, Blindfold/Ruth Aldine, Dust/Sooraya Qadir, Elixir/Josh Foley, Gentle/Nezhno Abidemi, Loa/Alani Ryan, Match/Ben Hammil, Pixie/Megan Gwynn, Mercury/Cessily Kincaid, Prodigy/David Alleyne, Rockslide/Santo Vaccaro, Wolf Cub/Nicholas Gleason, X-23/Laura Kinney, plus the remaining three Stepford Cuckoos (3) and No-Girl/Martha Johanssen --were transported to Otherplace, the students were split up.

    After a demon severed Anole's right arm, Magik used an axe to decapitate the demon.  Standing beside (or atop) a bestial N'astrih, Magik confronted Blindfold, Gentle, Loa, Match, Pixie, Rockslide, and Wolf Cub.

(New X-Men I#39) - As the X-Men-in-training pondered Magik, N'astirh hissed at them, and then Magik instructed N'astrirh to bring her Pixie. N'astirh flew foward, knocking aside Match and others, but Nehzno punched back N'astirh. As N'astirh threatened to "rip out your--" Nehzno smashed the demon back again before being overwhelmed by his own power and collapsing. nastirh-demon-xinfernus1

(New X-Men I#39 - BTS) - With N'astirh incapacitated, Magik told the others that she needed one of their souls to save their teammates.

    Magik subsequently coerced Pixie into giving her the chance to steal a portion of her soul.

(New X-Men I#40 - BTS) - N'astirh was not seen as Magik formed a soul dagger from a portion of Pixie's soul before being subdued by an Otherplace-rock-composed Rockslide and then apparently regaining her senses.

(New X-Men I#41 - BTS) - N'astirh was not seen when Magik taught Pixie a teleportation spell that brought them to confront and defeat Belasco. Magik regained control of Otherplace.

(X-Infernus#1) - With chains about his neck, N'astirh fought alongside S'ym and others in the service of Magik as she sought to reclaim her Soulsword and "Bloodstone amulet" Belasco had created from portions of her soul.

(X-Men: Hellbound#1 (fb) - BTS) - N'astirh regained a position of power in Otherplace, with S'ym subserviant to him.

(X-Men: Hellbound#1 - BTS) - After Magik had been pulled into Otherplace by a spell facilitated by Bastion and/or his followers, Cyclops sent Anole, Cannonball, Dazzler (Alison Blaire), Gambit (Remy LeBeau), Northstar (Jean-Paul Beaubier), Pixie, Trance (Hope Abbott) to rescue her. They were instantly swarmed by large numbers of demonic creatures, while Gambit's personality was subsumed by the Death persona Apocalypse had previously instilled in him.

(X-Men: Hellbound#1) - After S'ym noted the X-Men's arrival and Pixie's presence with them, N'astirh considered that Pixie would lead him to Magik so he could kill her and then limbo would be his forever. He instructed S'ym to kill the rest of the mutants beyond Pixie.

(X-Men: Hellbound#2) - After the X-Men had been divided/separated, N'astirh confronted Pixie (alongside Trance). N'astirh offered to restore the piece of Pixie's soul Magik had stolen in exchange for Magik's Soulsword. After Trance's time in astral/energy form faded and she returned to Earth, N'astirh clarified that Pixie would be free of the limbo/hell realm by killing Magik.

(X-Men: Hellbound#3) - Alongside Pixie, N'astrish confronted Magik as she was trapped in a pit in limbo (Otherplace), noting that they had come to end her suffering forever.

nastirh-demon-xmhellbound3-flight    N'astirh then informed Pixie that the magic imprisoning Illyana reeked of science and prevented him from breaking it, while Illyana's own spells prevented him from acting against her. However, Pixie, as a being of both worlds, could bypass both defenses with her soul dagger.

    Instead, Pixie stabbed N'astirh in the shoulder with her soul dagger; shocked, N'astirh asked that she fought for the demonic Illyana after what she'd done, and Pixie informed him that that was what X-Men did. N'astirh then informed her that he would tear out her soul, use it to kill Rasputin, and then resurrect Pixie so she "could suffer for all--" He was interrupted by attacks by Northstar and Dazzler, both of whom were controlled by the Death-incarnation-dominated Gambit.

    Detailing his plan to to kill Gambit and feast on his corpse, N'astirh ordered his demons to tear apart his X-Men, after which Death/Gambit revealed his own army of controlled demons.

    Unable to fight the non-magical/non-mutant nature of Death/Gambit, N'astirh urged Pixie to fight against her former teammate. Overwhelmed and captured, N'astirh warned that the "Elder Gods" (the N'Garai, who are actually Elderspawn) would return to burn him, but Death/Gambit smashed him with his bo staff.nastirh-demon-cabiv9

(X-Men: Hellbound#3 - BTS) - Ultimately, Pixie freed Magik, and they both stabbed Death/Gambit with their soul blades, allowing Gambit to regain control of his form.

    Reclaiming control of limbo, Magik noted that she would punish N'astirh and S'ym later.

(Cable IV#9 (fb) - BTS) - Magik kept N'astirh chained in Otherplace, forced to listen to a group of demons playing recorders and/or singing songs like the Proclaimers' "I would walk five hundred miles" for a century.

(Cable IV#9) - When Cable (the younger divergent who had apparently slain his older self) sought information on Stryfe, Magik showed him N'astirh. Although N'astirh did not know who Stryfe was, he offered to say anything to get out of the torture chamber. After Cable's departure, Magik had the demons resume their playing and singing.

Comments: Created by Tom DeFalco, Louise Simonson, and Steve Lightle.

    In Avengers I#300, N'astirh had a base atop the World Trade Center.
in X-Terminators#2, the Twin Towers were seen from cemetery.
    These are, of course, topical reference (relevent only to the story at the time it was published), as the sliding timescale means that the World Trade Center was destroyed well before the Fantastic Four's fateful flight.
    Per Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe writer, engineer, and New York expert Mike Fichera:
Very likely Calvary Cemetery in Sunnyside, Queens, seen in many movies since the skyline is so prominent, while the wide open field of tombstones is free of tall buildings to block the view. The Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movie had Peter visit the gravesites here (and meet his not-dead father in a deleted scene here)."

X-Factor I#32 has Cameron Hodge describing Belasco as a "fifteenth century mystic."

    N'astirh tended to invoke/reference "Sable shards" - exclamation in UX242

    Thanks to Daron Jensen for reminding me of the appearance in Avengers I#306.
