Conceptualizations of the spatialization of trauma are particularly provocative in light of Homi Bhabha’s identification of traumatic moments of apprehension, as coupled with what he terms the “pedagogical” and “performative” enunciations of national identity. The construction of national identity connects to traumatic moments of creation, in that another dimension of identity is layered upon the already-immanent ruptures between identities as they abut and depart from one another. Freud conceptualizes traumatic symptoms as that which appear in the individual partly as a repression of memory and partially as obsessive reenactment of the source moment. In the comic series Lucifer, Lucifer creates another alternative creation alongside of YHWH’s, and by opening the doors between these creations, Lucifer allows a diasporic movement of people across the spatial boundary between two different universes. The traumatic effects of creation and spectatorship can be examined on multiple levels within this comic book series, as it visually and textually expresses boundaries, repetitions of the traumatic moment, exile, and the deployment of (and the resistance to) power. The series essentially examines shifting power paradigms, and the extent to which those who are always already-interpellated into a religious ideology can resist their prescribed roles.
