The Phantom Stranger is a mysterious supernatural guide and specialist in the occult. His paranormal origins and even his true nature are largely unknown, although he has acted as an agent of the Lords of Order. He has been a member of the Justice League, Quintessence, Trenchcoat Brigade and the Sentinels of Magic. In the The New 52 reboot, the Stranger is shown to be Judas Iscariot from the Bible roaming around the universe in guilt over causing the death Jesus Christ. He has the 30 silver coins that were given to him for betraying Jesus tied around his chest.

Phantom Stranger was created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino, first appearing in The Phantom Stranger #1 (1952).
