Living Tribunal. ONLY the One Above All (marvel) or GOD (DC - who is dead) is more omnipotent.

The Spectre has yet to be shown to be powerful enough to annihilate solar systems or even greater celestial objects. LT has.

I admit we may have not seen the uppermost limit of the Spectres power (he has held back 2 dimensional variants of earth to prevent their merging) but based on the showings to date, LT appears to be the more powerful.

It would be a good battle. There just wouldn't be a winner.

I agree with you. Not knowing as much about Spectre, I cant remember if he is a being outside of DC's primary universe. Living Tribunal is of the multiverse, above the mere powers of the universes as he has to judge them all. If The Spectre is only tied to one universe, then I would suspect that The Living Tribunal is more powerful.

Speture almost single handley beat the whole magic world in DC , It was done to someone stealing his powers and using them agaisnt him that they won, In fact she was the only person able to do that, Speture Has unbelviable power, I would say him, I dont know why but, the guy scares the hell out of me.

#12 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

No, The Specter isn't tied to any one universe or time... he's quite capable of moving through Hypertime and traveling back through Crisis on Infinite Earths to do what he wants to...

#13 Posted by Forever (4332 posts) - - Show Bio

I dont mean that he's trapped in one universe. I mean is he a part of one universe? Was he created in one universe? Any number of characters can move from universe to universe but The Living Tribunal exists outsides of any one universe because he is of the multiverse. He would have no trouble with all of the magic users of one universe taking action, he would simply wipe that universe out of existence with the wave of his hand, or just wipe those magic users out of existence and leave the universe. I'm just wondering if the Spectre is as powerful as the Living Tribunal is. I have no doubts about the Tribunal's power level.

#14 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

The Specter is the right hand of God... he is literally the Creator's vengeance...

Methos says:

"The Specter is the right hand of God... he is literally the Creator's vengeance... M"

I do know that. I will assume that means that he is not just God's right hand in this universe, but that he is God's right hand across the universes. I dont know that for sure, but I'll assume that. We still have no showings of him doing things on the Living Tribunal's level. You love to mention that Ion cowed Specter. I like to think that it wasn't exactly like that, but if it was, then I would think that would be reason enough to think Tribunal is more powerful. Even when Thanos had the Inifinity Gauntlet, Tribunal was completely unmoved. No individual from any one universe, no matter how powerful, is anywhere near the Living Tribunal's power level. So I'm still not sure that Specter is on Tribunal's power level.

#16 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

there are 6 or 7 beings in the DCU that are completely removed from anything... beings that could wipe out the entire universe with a wave of their hand and just move on across the multiverse.

Specter, The Quintessence and Ion are the 7 that immediately come to mind...

those beings are the ones that can happily destroy or remake universes at a whim...

#17 Posted by Forever (4332 posts) - - Show Bio

I dont doubt that. There are people like that in Marvel too. Phoenix and as I mentioned before, anyone with the Infinity Gauntlet could do the same, but being able to wipe out one universe wouldn't even make you a concern of the Living Tribunal. He's far beyond that.

We're essentially not saying anything different. I'm just not certain how powerful Specter really is. Using an analogy, being able to destroy a universe could be equated to being able to press 100 tons over your head. Lots of people can do that but does that mean that they can take out Superman? I havent seen Specter do things that are on Tribunal's level and with what Arrow was mentioning about magic users stealing his power and defeating him, that really casts some doubt.

#18 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

i'm assuming that Arrow is talking about the time that the Specter was being controlled by Neron... the problem with The Specter is that he prefers to anchor himself to another being, Jim Corrigan or Hal Jordan for example. Without that anchor then the Specter is pure vengeance.

Like you've seen the LT do some amazing things that the Specter hasn't, i've seen The Specter do things that the LT hasn't, like keeping two separate universes apart through his own power.

Well if someone else could control him because of his human anchor than the Living Tribunal could do the same. And the Living Tribunal doesn't have any weaknesses like that.

#20 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

not really... The Spirit of the Specter has to be willing to 'merge' with the host...

i'm trying to think of the time that the Specter was controlled, but aside from Neron i can't think or another time

#21 Posted by Forever (4332 posts) - - Show Bio

Isnt the spirit already merged with a host? If that host is then controlled then what happens to the spirit? Is it not still anchored to that host? I thought that was how it was controlled before, but are you saying that a new host, who was already under someone's control, was offered up to the Specter and he was tricked into inhabiting that body and that was how he ended up being controlled?

No if you look at day of vengance the specture was not controled and well he messed up the world on a massive scale taking down the wizard Shazam

When the spirit 'merges' with the host then they become the same being... but are still seperate...

it's complicated lol

take Hal for example, he wasn't The Specter before he merged, when they did merge was was The Specter but The Specter still had it's own identity and purposes that weren't Hal's, even though they were the same being...

as i said, it's complicated lol

over all i'm still saying it's a draw... both these powers are second only to The Creator or The One Above All

Fight between Wizard Shazam and Specture was the last battle , Before that he took out Tom thumbill and Captain Marvel and well a hell of alot of Magic users

#26 Posted by Forever (4332 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm inclined to agree that it's a stalemate but I always find it more interesting to continue the debate out to learn more about the characters. I hadnt known about the battle Arrow raised, so I have to go back and look into that. And you've given me something to think about Methos with the division between the host and the spirit and how that could be used against him. Thanks fellas.

Fine, that is one aspect of "The Creator". LT is all aspects of "The One Above All" the ultimate balance.

Also, the way it sounds Spector exists in one universe at a time. LT exists in all Universes at once, there is only one LT in all multiverses just like "The One Above All."

Also, LT does not judge universes, but actualities. Actualities are the sum of dimensions and forces within a Eternity.

Specters own write up confirms his lower stature to LT. He was not created until 776BC? LT has existed through out all time. Specter might be big and bad, but he is no where near to LT level.

@Reactor: Because he/she feels like validating their opinion that the LT is superior to the Spectre in power? This is a much more direct thread pitting LT against only the Spectre.
#39 Posted by Reactor (2485 posts) - - Show Bio

At best, it'll be a stalemate. Normal-level Specter, LT takes him. LT is always at his most powerful, Spectre's power, for all intents and purposes, depends on the Presence's mood. Full Presence-augmented Spectre should at least be able to stalemate LT, althought I can't see either coming out on top. It feels like an alternative TOAA vs TP.

I wouldn't say that. :P  
The TOAA and The Presence are both running around with infinite power being god in their respected universus, infinity vs infinity = moo arguement.  
That shouldn't be quite the case for the Tribunal and the Spectre. :D

Okay, I'm going to finish this fight. 
 
Living Tribunal is far more powerful, but only because Spectre is limitated by Presence to use his standard power. The powers of Spectre comes from The Logoz that is his bond to God, essentially they come from God's power. Spectre at his prime (whitout Presence's limitations) has truly infinite power, much like LT level. 
 
I say stalemate

Above LT is TOAA and Infinity Being. TOAA made HOTU as almost his equal, so it is not a part of Marvel's hierarchy per se. Infinity Being is Megaversal creator. 
In DC we have Primal Monitor, The Presence, Lucifer and Michael who are much above fully power Spectre. At least. 
So Spectre is at best 5th. LT is 3rd. Spectre never created Multiverse, while LT is abve full Phoniex Force and Multi-Eternity. He is Megaversal, not only Multiversal.
