Meatmarket's full abilities remain unknown. As a demon, he had the appearance of a larger-than-normal human skeleton covered in patches of skin. He can also apparently used body parts from humans and other animals as his own. He also has an extended lifespan. Lilith gave him the ability to turn invisible, apparently just a temporary ability and not one that he inherently possessed.
Meat Market is a member of the the Lilin a race of demons spawned by Lilith self-professed Mother of Demons. Each apparently possessing unique superhuman powers, the Lilin are either immortal or extremely long-lived. It is undetermined if the first generation of Lilin were demon/human hybrids, the result of Lilith mating with other demons, or creations of some other type. Lilith and her children led a campaign of terror and death against humanity, but at some point Alantean magicians incarcerated her within the belly of a leviathan, after which many of the Lilin were killed off by their adversaries. Some survived, either escaping to other dimensions or assimilating themselves into humanity. For thousands of years, Lilith's children awaited her return.
In recent years, when the half-buried corpse of the leviathan was discovered in the frozen wastelands of northern Greenland, the scientists exploring their find accidentally released Lilith. Using magic to peer into the future, Lilith saw that she was destined to fight a cabal of nine supernatural beings who threatened her existence. She summoned her children, but only Pilgrim, a being able to create teleportation rifts, answered her. Determined to keep the nine from coming together, Lilith and Pilgrim set out to find other Lilin. Meat Market was discovered killing a man in Boston by Lilith.
