Samael

Samael is the ruler of Hell in Elliot S Maggin's Superman novel, Miracle Monday, and was the angelic name of Neil Gaiman and Mike Carey's Lucifer Morningstar.

A mythological Samael is mated with Lilith whereas the Gaiman/Carey version is mated with a daughter of Lilith. These comics are deeply embedded in Biblical and other Jewish mythology.

Read comics and the Bible! - including Judge Dredd and the Book of Judges. The latter includes a strong man with a fatal weakness, Samson.
