Chaim Levon is a Hebrew school teacher who wields great mystical power similar to the Earth-2A hero Doctor Fate.


Continuity from SuperFriends Comic Book

As the Seraph, he has fought for justice both on his own and as a member of the Global Guardians. He helped Superman retrieve an ancient artifact and dismantle a bomb in Israel. He also freed the Wonder Twins after they were brainwashed. Seraph fought crime solo, trying to think of ways to revive the Global Guardians.

In late 1980, he almost kills a criminal. God intervenes, temporarily stripping him of his powers. He only gets them back after praying for forgiveness during Yom Kippur.[1][2]

His current status is unknown.


Powers and Abilities

Super Powers

Abilities


Equipment

Seraph's powers are primarily derived from various mythic artifacts he believes were handed down to him by historic figures chronicled in the Torah.

  • The Ring of Solomon gives him wisdom and allows him to teleport short distances.
  • The Mantle of Elijah protects him from harm.
  • The Staff of Moses can extend to whatever length he needed, and can transform into a serpent, create earthquakes, and manipulate water and energy.


Weakness

Power Loss: All his powers and artifacts will be rendered unusable if Seraph commit sins or abuses his powers. It won't return until the next Yom Kippur.

  • He was created by E. Nelson Bridwell and Ramona Fradon, art by Bob Oksner and some lettered by Milt Snapinn.

  • Serpaph's first canonical Post-Crisis appearance was in Justice League Quarterly, Vol. 1 #7 (Summer, 1992).

  1. Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the year for religious Jews. Its central themes are atonement and repentance. Jews traditionally observe this holy day with a 25-hour period of fasting and intensive prayer, often spending most of the day in synagogue services. Yom Kippur completes the annual period known in Judaism as the High Holy Days. Yom Kippur is the tenth day of the month of Tishrei.
