"had not yet lost all his original brightness." (Apparently his appearance grows steadily worse.) The fallen angels were singed up during their fall from heaven, and their substance has grown coarser, but they are still recognizably angelic. 

The proper form of Milton's angels seems to be anthropomorphic, very beautiful, but gigantic in size; however, they can change size, shape, and sex at will. M's Satan certainly doesn't have a tail, goat legs, and bat wings. According to illustrator John Martin (1820s), he has a Hitler mustache.
