DC Characters are often glorified and worshipped as gods. They are quite different from Marvel characters. There are a lot of great superhero stories made about these comic characters and they are fun to read.
Here are some of the most powerful DC characters:
The Presence is the most powerful character in the DC universe since he is the one who created the angels, named Michael and Samael. He is also known as the God of the Covenant and the one who created and made the DC Universe and all that is included along with it. His character is the equivalent of the Abrahamic God from a very old comic. Jerry Siegel and Bernard Bailey are the ones who created this DC character. He does not appear so often in comic books but is being mentioned a lot of times. Other names that refer to The Presence are also Yahweh, The Voice, The Source, Wally, The Hand…
Lucifer Morningstar used to be one of the most beautiful angels and was very respected. When Yahweh created two brothers he showed them how to use their powers in order to create the entire DC Multiverse. One of the brothers turned against Yahweh, after which he changed his name from Samael to Lucifer Morningstar. As a punishment, he was sent to rule over Hell where he was in charge for more than 10 billion years. After a long time, he decided to leave hell and change his life path.
Michael Demiurgos is the other brother created by the Yahweh the Almighty. He was gifted Demiurgic Power and had a duty to create the DC Multiverse along with his twin brother Samael. God’s Demiurgic Power that he has are the reason why some consider him the most powerful character in DC comics. Michael is the strongest of God’s created beings and he has the power to prevent the physical creation of the cosmos.
This character is a version of The Presence, God’s Vengeance. Lucifer was the leader of the rebellion of the angels against God. One of the angels in that group was Raguel/Aztar who decided to repent of his sins. The God took away his memories and he later became the His Wrath incarnation. He is now known as the Spectre and the one who destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, the Walls of Jericho as well as the plagues of Egypt. When Yahweh decided to take a human form as Compassion and Redemption he sent Spectre to limbo where he has to wait until the crucifixion. He escaped and was casting vengeance on the man until Michael Demiurgos stopped him. After that day Spectre was turned into a human soul who exists on earth and seeks vengeance.
Elaine Belloc is the daughter of Archangel Michael who supports her along with his brother Lucifer Morningstar who used to rule the Hell. Michael was the only unsterile angel which is why Sandalphon began experimenting. He created the creature who is able to give birth to angels which is how Elaine was born. Michael was forced to hand over his demiurgic powers to his daughter because he was wounded by Fenris during one of the many battles. If Michael died the demiurgic power would be freed and that would cause all existence to disappear. After Elaine received the powers she started fighting over Lucifer’s and Yahweh’s reins. She manages to merge the two universes Elaine becomes the new God of Creation.
