- I don't waste a lot of time on looking back at what might have been. For me, the past is just that. The past. And then someone says a name. A name from the past that you can't ignore. Y'see, the last time I heard the name Elvarro Mortez... was the night I died.
- — The Spirit src
While fighting the evil Dr. Cobra, in Central City in 1940, a young policeman named Denny Colt was doused with a liquid which put him in a deep coma. Believed dead, Denny was buried at Wildwood Cemetery, but awoke from his grave, twenty-four hours later. He established a secret crime-fighting base under his own tombstone, and using his new-found anonymity, he began to fight crime and protect the people of Central City as The Spirit.
The Spirit has an autoplane, which is a car that turns into a plane and vice versa.
- From December 21, 2016 to April 5, 2017, The Spirit and Dick Tracy worked together. It is unknown if this was the Earth-Spirit version of Dennis Colt.
