"The Spectre was a ghost of of a murdered detective who was forced to return to earth with the impossible task of ridding the world of crime.

...The Spectre has an extremely large bag of tricks. He could do all the normal ghostly things, like fly, let bullets pass through his body, and become invisible. In addition, he could instantly travel to other dimensions, enlarge or diminish his body to any size, make multiple copies of himself, and talk with his alter ego as if he were a separate being."

From The Golden Age Spectre, Vol 1, introduction by Jerry Bails. DC Comics Archive Books 2003.

Originally created by Jerry Siegel (of Superman fame). The original adventures were drawn by Bernard Baily.
