    I don't think Eclipso would have been the host for the Spectre, unless it was maybe a case where Eclipso briefly took over the Spectre. That's not quite the same thing, though.

    Doesn't matter if it was new or a reprint.

    The question was "Who was the first host to "Spectre" from DC comics you ever read about?"

    A few more votes since the last update:
    * Jim Corrigan (Golden Age Spectre) = 62 votes (+3)
    * Hal Jordan (Silver Age Green Lantern) = 5 votes (no change)
    * Nobody (The Spectre unconnected to a "host body") = 3 votes (no change)
    * Crispus Allen (former Gotham City police detective) = 2 votes (no change)

    And geoffpayne1992 voted "other", but I don't think it was ever explained what was meant by that vote?

    Was there a real life Jim or Jimmy Corrigan after which all the fictional Corrigans were named?

    Jim Corrigan, I tend to take a lot of breaks and jump around in my comic reading. So I was kinda confused when I saw some other people at first. :P

    Jim Corrigan. I'm not that familiar with Crispus Allen and Hal as The Spectre was just weird. The Mxyzptlk Injustice thing was interesting though.
