|“||Born in lust, turn to dust. Born in sin, come on in!||„|
|~ Linoge's most iconic quote|
André Linoge was the main antagonist of Stephen King's Storm of the Century. He was a very old man who carried with him a cane with a silver wolf's head on top of it and was the one who terrorized the people of a town of Little Tall Island off the coast of Maine during a massive blizzard in what was called "Storm of the Century".

Attack Potency: Multi City-Block level+ (Easily creates hurricane force winds), possibly City level (It is implied that Linoge formed the two storms that converged at Little Tall Island. The result was so powerful that all access off the island was blocked, and no one was able to leave the island until the storm was over. It was described as "a very atypical storm, almost a winter hurricane the sort of knuckle-duster that paralyzed most of the East Coast and buried Boston back in 1976". No tempest like that was ever seen since 1976 until Linoge's arrival to Little Tall. He should also be the sponsor of the storm that hit Croatoan back in 1590)
Speed: Supersonic (Caught a bullet from a pistol without seeming to have moved at all), likely higher
Lifting Strength: Unknown
Striking Strength: Unknown
Durability: Unknown (Unaffected by the hurricane force winds he produced to shake the market where he was being kept in. Walked unconcerned into the storm. Possibly able to withstand that much energy if he can produce it, albeit it is unknown if he does such through magic)
Stamina: Very high, likely limitless.
Range: Standard melee range physically. Extended melee range with his cane. At least hundreds of kilometers with his powers. (While being held as a prisoner, he was using his powers to affect the entirety of Little Tall Island, a fictional location based on Mount Desert Island. Implied to have created the two storms which spanned the entire width of Little Tall and then some.)
Standard Equipment: His cane.
Intelligence: Possibly Nigh-Omniscient. Had knowledge of all of the townspeople's darkest secrets, as well as everybody else's in the whole world. Despite having never met anyone in Little Tall prior to the events of the film, he knew everyone's names, ages and addresses, as well as everything they'd ever done in their lives.
Weaknesses: None notable.
