In the fifteenth, and final, season of The CW's Supernatural, Sam and Dean Winchester will once again come face-to-face with some of the universe's most powerful beings. Over the years, angels, demons, and even the occasional vampire have proven to be formidable foes for the hunting duo. However, they all pale in comparison to the cosmic threats that will plague the brothers in their final outing.
Otherwise known as Amara, the Darkness is a primordial being who predates both God and Death. For most of the universe's existence, the Darkness was thought to be a myth because she was locked away by her brother, God. and his army of archangels. She was only unleashed on the Earth after Rowena removed the Mark of Cain from Dean.
The Darkness is considered to be the most powerful entity to ever exist by most of the Supernatural universe. If she was to fight any of these other beings, it's hard to imagine she wouldn't wipe the floor with them. After all, she very nearly killed God once already. However, Amara does have a substantial weakness. At the end of Season 11, she began to gain an appreciation for humanity, especially Dean, which could leave her vulnerable in a confrontation.
God, known by the Supernatural fandom as Chuck, has played a prominent role in the series for the better part of ten seasons. The list of abilities this near all-powerful entity possesses is too long to count, so it's easier to look at what his weaknesses are. God is a writer who created the universe to tell a story and entertain himself, much to the dismay of his sister, the Darkness.
Another problem God has to deal with is the number of enemies he's wracked up over the years. Throughout Supernatural's run, Chuck has managed to piss off nearly every group one can think of, including some quite powerful ones. So when sizing up God in a fight, it's important to remember he's not very well-liked, meaning allies will be hard to come by.
The first Death claimed that he would be the one to reap God so it's clear that he thought himself as equally, if not more, powerful than the creator of the Earth. This confidence didn't necessarily transfer to Billie, who is a different character altogether, but that could bode well for her in a fight of this caliber. The only thing she needs to worry about is losing track of her scythe, the weapon that ended her predecessor's life.
Finally, the dark horse pick in this melee would be the endless void known as the Empty. Predating even the Darkness, this pit serves as an afterlife for angels and demons where they sleep for the rest of eternity. The only other thing to note about the Empty is that it's controlled by the Shadow, a cosmic being with immeasurable power.
Even with an all-powerful being at the helm, it's difficult to get a read on the Empty. It gotten a lot less screen time on the hit CW series, making it hard to pit it against some of the show's other most fearsome beings. Once more becomes known about the Empty, it'll become easier to understand just how dangerous it is.
Returning Thursday, Oct. 10, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW for its final season, Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, and Alexander Calvert.
