In the finale, Michael and Lucifer went head to head, after Michael revealed he had “bigger plans.”
Their father, God (Dennis Haysbert), even felt the need to put an end to the fighting between sons by travelling to Earth, setting up part two of the supernatural drama.
In Lucifer, Michael and Lucifer are twins, with Tom Ellis playing both roles.
He is based on the archangel Michael and features in the Lucifer series by DC Comics created by Neil Gaiman and John Bolton.
In the bible, and also in the original DC Comics, Lucifer and Michael are not twins.
Even in the bible itself, the angels are not even described s family.
However, in both the bible and the DC Comics, Lucifer is portrayed as the fallen angel who rebelled against God and Michael is one of the heavenly archangels.
In the new testament, Michael leads God’s armies against Satan’s forces in the Book of Revelation.
During the war in heaven, he successfully defeated Satan and it is this version of Michael that appears in the Lucifer comics.

In the Lucifer comics, when Lucifer Morningstar began his revolt in heaven, he was outnumbered and defeated by his brother the Archangel Michael who used the Demiurgos (God’s power) to destroy his angelic forces.
Lucifer offered to enter a partnership with his brother in hell, but Michael refused and ever since the brothers have had a strained relationship.
Michael’s powers include the demiurgic power that allows creation out of nothingness. However, to use the power, he needs the presence of his brother, Lucifer.
Speaking to Backstage Magazine ahead of the season five premiere, Ellis discussed what it was like to play both roles.
He said: “It was a new challenge to me, that’s for sure.
“What I realized is that I’ve played Lucifer for five years; it’s very easy for me to step in and out of Lucifer’s skin.
“Playing a new character—it messed with my head a little bit. For a long time, I felt like a fraud to my friends and colleagues.
“But it was nice to think about a different character for a while. I had a certain set of rules that I had to work in.
“We’re always set up against time when we’re shooting. There’s so much to pack in, and we don’t have a lot of time.
“So in terms of Lucifer and Michael being different, I had to go old-school in that and figure out physicality and voice and how a character walks, as opposed to any sort of transformative prosthetics.”
