He merged with the Void beyond Voids and is directly connected to the Oversoul itselfThe power of the Spectre was so great and all-encompassing that its fullest potential was impossible to exploit.

Weaknesses: The Spectre can be injured or even slain by sufficient magic force such as the Spear of Destiny (although it should be noted that due to the nature of the Spear, it is precisely suited to harm him). If his body dies then The Spectre will be no more and the human spirit and the Divine Wrath will separate. The amount of power he has is limited by the amount The Presence is willing to give him, so his power level canonically varies enormously between different appearances, even beyond normal differences between writers and decades. He also cannot do anything that The Presence will not allow him to do | None Notable

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Intimidation: The Spectre excels at being able to intimidate and frighten his adversaries. This is usually done through showy spectacles such as assuming a monstrous appearance, growing in size, projecting a loud, booming voice, etc. In combat he can shoot green (or yellow) energy blasts.
  • Judgment: The Spectre punishes souls who have done evil, often by using his reality warping powers to give them ironic punishments, and then damning their souls to hell.

Key: Base | Crisis on Infinite Earths | Unbound/Full Potential Spectre

Notes: The Spectre's destructive capacity is variable, depending on how much power The Presence affords him at any given moment.

In addition, he was outmatched against the 5-dimensional imps in "Crisis Times Five" and "Emperor Joker".
