Etrigan The Demon was a demon in Trigon's employ and terrorized Earth from Athens to Troy. After stealing pearls off a woman, Etrigan encountered Homer, who was writing "The Odyssey." Etrigan snatched away his parchment and read it. Etrigan was shaken to the core and realized he would no longer be wicked. The poem opened his eyes to the beauty of life and abandoned his mission of terror. Trigon branded Etrigan a traitor. He turned to the wizard Merlin and went into hiding. Centuries later, Etrigan took part in Principal Waller's program for helping former supervillains go good and reformed. Now a rhyming demon, Etrigan taught poetry at Super Hero High School and was faculty advisor for the Theater Department. He taught the importance of a dramatic entrance. On a Monday, June Moone realized Etrigan's birthday was coming up. As part of her duties on the birthday committee, she organized a surprise party for Friday. She was unable to find out who Etrigan's friends or relatives were so she sent out an email invitation across the galaxy. She didn't get a single R.S.V.P. but inadvertently alerted Trigon to Etrigan's location.

That Friday, during Intro to Epics, Etrigan reviewed the reading homework about "The Odyssey." Harley Quinn inquired about Odysseus. Etrigan summarized the tale of Odysseus but Wonder Woman fell asleep and had her own dream about it. She awoke to Etrigan asking her a question. She answered "True" then "Homer" then "Odysseus" but asked what the question was. Luckily for her, the bell rang and class was over. Etrigan warned everyone there would be a test on Monday. The faculty threw Etrigan a surprise birthday party. He got an Ultimate Unlocker potion from Moone. She mentioned the email invite. Etrigan realized Trigon knew where he was. He ran off without saying a word. While demons trashed Etrigan's classroom, Etrigan used his key, one of three, to the Theater Department's Costume Closet. He dropped his copy of "The Odyssey" in the closet while he quickly cobbled a costume together, including a pink wig. With little choice, Etrigan used the Ultimate Unlocker on the Batjet and Etrigan flew away in it.

Etrigan's plan failed and he was captured by the demons anyway. He was taken inside the Portal Coffee Shop and down the portal to the Underworld. Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Miss Martian, Poison Ivy, Katana, Hawkgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumblebee, and Batgirl gathered to leave for Themyscira where a slumber party was to be held. Batgirl flew into a panic when she learned the Batjet was gone. The Metropolis Junior Detective Society discovered Etrigan's classroom in disarray. Lobo boomed to Super Hero High under guise he was thinking about transferring from Korugar Academy when in fact, he was looking for Etrigan to collect a bounty. Etrigan was thrown into a flaming cage. Trigon vowed he would pay for his crimes against the Underworld. Trigon's daughter Raven led Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Katana, Beast Boy, Miss Martian, and Bumblebee on the path to Etrigan but would go no further. Trigon appeared and imprisoned the supers for all eternity. Etrigan decided to tell his origins to the others.

Miss Martian revealed herself. She had gone invisible due to fright at the sight of Trigon and was not imprisoned. Bumblebee guided her to some stones and Miss Martian triggered them to release everyone. Pursued by demons, they ran back to the portal and returned to the Portal Coffee Shop just as it sealed up. Etrigan thanked Wonder Woman but she was eager to get him back to Super Hero High. Principal Waller decided to send him through a Boom Tube to a safe location until she officially worked out a treaty with Trigon. The supers and Etrigan said their goodbyes then he parted ways. In an alternate timeline, Etrigan served Vandal Savage for centuries and was his finest interrogator. Principal Savage summoned Etrigan after Poison Ivy, Supergirl, Katana, and Beast Boy denied knowing where the others were. After the timeline was restored to normal, during summer break, Etrigan presided over theater camp which was attended by Mammoth, Ravager, Star Sapphire, and Harley Quinn.
