“Confront Evil.” That’s what they told me. For fifty years, that’s what I’ve done. And the world is no better. The world has become more perverse on its choice of evils. And I don’t even know why – The Spectre
Jim Corrigan began his career as the Spectre in the early 1940s, when the hard-boiled police detective was murdered. Put into cement and thrown into the water by crime-boss Gat Benson, Jim Corrigan’s soul left his body and went on to the afterlife.
Instead of going into Heaven, his spirit refused to pass into the afterlife, and his rage was heard by the archangel Michael, who bonded his spirit to the spirit of God’s vengeance, the Spectre.
The Spectre uses his incredible divine powers to punish the truly wicked, usually ending his victim’s lives in creative and ironic ways.
