I'm the undying spirit of vengeance. I'll exist as long as there's a need for dark judgment and divine retribution.

~ The Spectre.

The Spectre is a major character from DC Comics who was infamous for exacting extremely graphic and often torturous punishments on others during his early years and continued this trend on and off into the modern age as the embodiment of God's Wrath.


The Spectre was created by Jerry Siegel and Bernard Baily, first appearing in More Fun Comics #52.

Powers and Abilities

To me, your angriest blows are no more than the whisper of snowflakes. You are powerful, my friend--but the Spectre is power-incarnate!
~ The Spectre to Superman.

The Spectre is an extremely powerful cosmic entity, able to manifest almost any power that he wishes and for all intents and purposes can be considered omnipotent. However he does have some notable weaknesses and thus is not quite on the same scale as a true Supreme Being (such as The Presence).
