DC Comics: The Presence/God Explained


DC Comics

The Presence, otherwise known as the God of the Covenant, is the most powerful entity in the DC Comics Multiverse. But how much do we actually know about him?

The Presence was created by writer Jerry Siegel (co-creator of Superman) and comic book artist Bernard Bailey. He was created to be the fictional representation of God. Different stories portray it as being the “creator of the DC universe” and thus transcending all things with the Presence itself being its representation within creation. Other stories have it as another god who inherited a large portion of the Godwave, the force that created the gods of the DC universe, and relies on the faith of its worshipers to empower it.
