The Spectre served as an agent of divine wrath ever since he came into contact with his first host Jim Corrigan. He first sought Wesley Dodds due to the dreams that he had of a forthcoming Armageddon with the superheroes and meta-humans, but was unable to do so because Dodds had died. However, the dreams had been passed on to his pastor and friend Norman McCay, so the Spectre appeared unto him instead. Throughout the rest of the story, the Spectre took McCay to various places in the events that unfolded, guided by the dreams passed on to McCay, but not interacting directly with the events. At the point in the meta-human battle where the Blackhawk squadron dropped a bomb that would destroy most of all meta-human lifeforms, the Spectre allowed McCay to make the decision of whether humans or meta-humans should survive or face judgment. McCay realized that it wasn't his place to judge the events and so allowed the events of the battle to unfold by themselves, resulting in Captain Marvel sacrificing himself to stop the bomb by detonating it prematurely, destroying most meta-humans except for Superman and those protected by the Green Lanterns' rings. As Superman flew into the United Nations to exact revenge on them, the Spectre transported McCay there so he could talk some sense into Superman to make him see the humanity he has chosen to neglect all those years he believed he was a god. After Superman relented and his fellow superheroes decided to make a pact that they would no longer stand above humans to solve their problems but rather stand beside them to help solve their problems together, the Spectre showed his once-human side as Jim Corrigan to McCay before he returned the pastor to his congregation to preach a message of hope.
- The Spectre had a meal item at the Planet Krypton restaurant named after him called the Spectre Platter, which consisted of spinach and cottage cheese -- echoing the green-and-white theme of his physical appearance.
