Damien Thorn (The Omen)

The Antichrist is a figure described in the Book of Revelation in the Christian Bible. He is the archenemy of Christianity and is considered to be the final opponent that mankind shall face before their eventually liberation by Jesus Christ - depictions of the Antichrist vary widely depending on the source and are often a product of politic unrest as it was (and remains) a popular tool of propaganda to infere that your enemy is in some way the Antichrist and thus a figure that must be defeated for the good of all humanity.

Although traditionally seen as a single being their are some people who believe that the Antichrist is actually a being that returns several times throughout human history - this is especially prominent in works by Notradamus: historical-figures who have been considered Antichrists include Napoleon, Hitler and other tyrants as well as traditional enemies of the Christian church such as the Roman Empire (prior to its conversion to Christianity).

The Antichrist is also a popular figure in fiction, undoubtably the most famous of all Antichrists in fiction is Damien Thorn - the antagonist of Omen and it's sequels: the idea of the Antichrist as a real figure continues to both terrify and fascinate many people around the world though some people have begun to question whether or not the Antichrist is a threat that awaits humanity, a threat that has already passed or even a metaphore rather than a literal being..
