- "Jim Corrigan. But I'm also someone else. I'm something else: a spectre."
- —John Diggle and Jim Corrigan[src]

Passing on the mantle of Spectre
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.
