IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

SPECTRE IS THE SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE OF THE PRESENCE

Spectre (Aztar). DC Comics.

In More Fun Comics (1940) #52, the Spectre made his first appearance in the Pre-Crisis continuity. In the origin story, the Spirit of Vengeance is a New York City police officer named Jim Corrigan.

As the Spirit of Vengeance, the Presence tasks the Spectre with exacting vengeance on evil men. Moreover, Spectre is a founding member of the Justice Society of America. The JSA makes its debut in All Star Comics (1940) #3.

In Crisis on Infinite Earths (1986) #10, Spectre makes a surprise appearance. After the heroes destroyed the Anti-Monitor’s antimatter cannon on Qward, Anti-Monitor goes to the beginning of time, in order to destroy the positive matter universe.

However, the outcome turns out completely different with a new universe created. Really, Spectre is dependent on the Presence and is as strong as the being allows him to be.

OVERPOWERED, SPECTRE CAN CREATE A UNIVERSE

In Crisis on Infinite Earths (1986) #10, only five Earths remain after the destruction of the multiverse: Earth-One, Earth-Two, Earth-Four, Earth-S and Earth-X.

In a final attempt to destroy the positive matter multiverse, Anti-Monitor time travels to the Dawn of Time. There, he intends to view the beginning of time and destroy all reality.

At the Dawn of Time, the heroes and the mages of the DC multiverse are assembled to stop the enemy. There, Spectre appears, channels their combined powers and reaches into Anti-Monitor’s Hand of creation.

Though he fails from preventing Anti-Monitor to contemplate Krona‘s experiment on the DC Universe, he nevertheless succeeds in creating a new universe. With his reality-warping powers, Spectre dies and creates the New Earth continuity.

In this comparison, with the power of five Earths, Spectre is evidently Multiversal-Level in Energy Projection, and ranks below the Source.

Some of Spectre’s powers include: Nigh-omniscience, energy projection, dimensional travel, immortality, flight, intangibility, metamorphosis, super-strength, size alteration and reality-warping at the Multiversal-Level.

PHILOSOPHICALLY, SPECTRE IS GOD’S WRATH

In Day of Vengeance (2005) #2, Spectre confronts Eclipso. DC Comics.

Philosophically, Spectre is God’s Wrath. In DC Pre-Crisis mythology, Spectre is a fallen angel named Aztar. After the fall of angels, he repented before Heaven, and the Presence erased his identity, bonding him to God’s Wrath.

Since Spectre is a ghost and has no memory of his evil past, he needs a human host in order to help him exact the Vengeance of the Presence. Regularly, Jim Corrigan is the most common Spectre human host.

In Day of Vengeance (2005) #2, Eclipso, who is also an aspect of God’s Wrath convinces Spectre that the cause of evil in the DC Universe is magic. Moreover, the Guardians of the Universe had to contain magic with the Starheart, in order to bring order to the universe.

After, Spectre goes through the DC Universe destroying magic, eventually going mano-a-mano against Captain Marvel.

In a philosophical sense, Spectre is God’s Wrath because he seeks vengeance for evil in the universe. Also, he seeks redemption for his own past.

WHY SPECTRE IS AN OVERPOWERED BEING

HIS OMNISCIENCE EXTENDS TO THE OMNIVERSE

Perhaps, Spectre’s most impressive feats occur in the fan-voted DC Versus Marvel (1996) inter-company crossover.

In Marvel Versus DC (1996) #2, the two Brothers representing both franchises awaken to renew their abstract battle. To find out whose universe survives, their heroes must do battle.

In the issue, the Spectre and Living Tribunal both use their nigh-omniscience to see beyond and over to the Omniverse.

SPECTRE IS TOUGHER THAN BRONZE AGE SUPERMAN

In DC Comics Presents (1981) #29, Spectre faces the might of the Bronze Age Superman.

When Supergirl goes missing, Superman searches the entire universe. At superluminal speed, he even breaches the bounds of infinity.

To prevent him from entering Heaven, Spectre confronts him. In a classic battle, an all-out Superman delivers a powerful punch that creates a crater.

However, Spectre does not move at all and is unfazed by Superman’s might.

Considering Superman’s punch shook mountains, and is likely at least a Magnitude 5.0 earthquake, Spectre’s base durability is at least City-Level.

DURABILITY FEAT: CITY-LEVEL

Durability: City 25%

THE FIGHT

In DC Universe vs The Masters Of The Universe (2013) #2, Skeletor and Black Alice come to Prime Earth to drain it of its mystical life-force. Skeletor attacks the Justice League satellite and using magic turns them into his “minions.”

The Justice League “minions” attack John Constantine, Batman, He-Man, Teela and company at the Batcave.

A battle to the death ensues between Superman and He-Man.

What a battle! It turns out the Superman He-Man killed was actually a facsimile. The real Superman, was being imprisoned on the extra-dimensional world of Trolla, by Orko.

In DC Universe vs The Masters Of The Universe (2014) #6, He-Man rescues Superman from Trolla. An all-out battle between Orko’s minions and The Masters Of The Universe and the DC Universe ensues.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

‘DC Comics Presents’ was a series that featured Superman teaming-up with a different hero each issue. And oh boy, did they hit the ball in the park with this one! This issue is a kind of “What If” first team-up between Superman and He-Man.

We get our answers to what would happen if He-Man ever fought Superman. In their first encounter in DC history, Superman is brought from Earth to Eternia through a dimensional portal created by cosmic storm clouds. Skeletor is at one of his attacks at Castle Greyskull as he possesses half of the Power Sword! He-Man gets summoned by the Goddess and Superman travels to the strange world of Eternia.

This is a classic ’80s story with colors and pencils by Curt Swan. A more vintage art that favors bigger upper bodies and smaller legs. If you are a fan of the artist, this is classic Curt Swan. The fun, the action and the adventure belong in your ’80s He-Man collection.

This story is very reverent of both characters showing what makes each character work in the ’80s: He-Man, Man-At-Arms, Teela and the colorful cast of characters; the Superman/Clark Kent alter ego reminiscent of Christopher Reeve’s comedic tones. Both characters are true to themselves and form a formidable duo. Definitely a favorite story.

BEST: ‘MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE’ (1982).

Collects ‘Masters Of The Universe’ #1-3.


























Rating: 5 out of 5.

Paul Kupperberg and George Tuska’s three-issue series ‘Masters of The Universe’ may exemplify He-Man in the ’80s. At its best, He-Man deals with science fiction and fantasy themes comparable to Star Wars and Conan in the decade.

The world of ‘Masters of The Universe’ blends magic and science and figures the fantasy characters heading on a quest in order to save the Goddess. As matter of fact, ‘Masters of The Universe’ stands out because of the straight-forward natures of the quest. In some sense, what makes the comic work for the time period is the cartoony nature of the characters, which seem very well like one-dimensional characters: He-Man, Teela, Stratos and Man-At-Arms fight for good; whereas, Skeletor fights for Evil. The characters do not change.

The foci of the story are action and adventure. The adventure spans Eternia and the universe, from land, to sea, to space, to parallel dimensions. He-Man and co. fight snakes, dragons, demons, Beastmen, extra-dimensional creatures and even Skeletor. The action and the adventure are a thrill and are the parts that work the best in the comic. This is what He-Man is best at.

This is certainly a worthy addition to your He-Man and Masters of The Universe ’80s collection, with a blend of adventure, action, magic, and suspense.

GOOD: ‘HE-MAN AND THE POWER SWORD’ (1982).


























Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

“He-Man and The Power Sword” (1982) is the first of four Masters of The Universe miniature storybooks that accompanied the Mattel toyline. The storybook is clearly promotional material and serves as an introduction to He-Man and MoTU.

The storybook reads like a fairy tale. The water color art and the hyper-muscular lines of the characters creates the idea of legend and immortality. He-Man appears as a barbaric warrior who does not fear overwhelming foes and keeps fighting no matter the odds. The pacing is quick and focuses on the action, not the characterization. The plot is simple and straight-forward reminiscent of classic legends.

The storybook is aimed at children’s stories and works as a first introduction to the character.
