"Who are you?"
"Jim Corrigan. But I'm also someone else. I'm something else: a spectre."
John Diggle and Jim Corrigan[src]

Jim Corrigan was a decorated police officer. He was eventually called to a higher purpose and became a powerful entity known as Spectre, a role he would briefly pass on to Oliver Queen so he could save his friends and the multiverse and combat the Anti-Monitor during the Anti-Monitor Crisis


Earlier life

"In another life, I was a decorated police officer, a hero in my own right, but then I was called to a higher purpose."
—Jim Corrigan[src]

At one point, Jim Corrigan was a highly decorated police officer. Eventually, he had a new purpose and became something else, a "spectre".[1]

Passing on the mantle of Spectre

After Oliver Queen was resurrected, Corrigan arrived in Purgatory and told him it was his turn to carry the spectre to save the multiverse.[1]

For weeks, Jim prepared Oliver for the battle that was to come, making him relive every punch thrown, every kick landed, and every arrow shot throughout his life. When he was finally ready to take on the Anti-Monitor and restore the multiverse, Jim sent him to the Paragons at the Vanishing Point.[2]

    • Power bestowal: With the glow of his eyes, Jim Corrigan was able to transfer the power of the Spectre to Oliver so he can save the multiverse.
    • Precognition: Corrigan has the ability to see people's future. He told Oliver that he is destined to become the spectre to save the multiverse from destruction.
