The Spectre is a cool character, but he was just another (skimpily) costumed adventurer in the 40's, as you say.
In later, uh, incarnations, they made him seem much more supernatural than superhero.

It was a real dumb idea to turn Hal Jordan into the Spectre. I'm glad they ended that idiocy.

If you watch the very strange but great comic book superhero movie Unbreakable, in the part where Bruce Willis is rescuing the children from the mass murderer, he is obviously modeled after the Spectre.


Loved that bit from Ostrander's run. Honestly, I think he and Spectre were a match made in heaven. Some writers are just made to write some characters.
