Bio:
Jim Corrigan was a police detective drowned by thugs. Thanks to some magical intervention from Madame Xanadu, his spirit survived to continue his war against crime. Initially, his Spectre appearance was presented as a costume, but he gained more and more powers, including the ability to travel between Earth-1 and Earth-2, as time went on. He then claimed to be the the manifestation of the wrath of God.

After failing during the Crisis on Infinite Earths and the subsequent war in hell and onslaught by the Brujería, the Spectre was punished, and became a separate entity from Corrigan, claiming to be his soul, while Corrigan would decry his violent methods for dealing with criminals. The Spectre would leave Corrigan's body to fight crime and return to it to rest. Corrigan began working as a private detective, setting up shop upstairs from Madame Xanadu's shop on Chrystie Street after she sent Kim Liang to get an urn with him inside it out of a locker at Penn Station. The Spectre began a romantic relationship with Madame Xanadu, while Corrigan had a budding relationship with Kim, now working as his secretary.

Corrigan was eventually shot by one of his adversaries and was re-animated by the Spectre. They once again altered places, and Corrigan built a detective agency, with an odd mix of assistants, many of whom quit or were killed.
