The Darkness is an ageless male soul which passes from one human vessel to another each generation, manifesting within the host on his 21st birthday. The Darkness was the original void over Earth until God allowed the coming of his opposite and eternal enemy, The Angelus. The Darkness resented God and became an enemy of Heaven.
The Darkness is the one who gave humans their souls. The current host of The Darkness is Jackie Estacado.

Powers & AbilitiesThe Darkness is an elemental force of nearly limitless power that allows his host access to an otherworldly dimension and control over the veritable legion of Darklings and demons who dwell there. As such, he is the possessor of seemingly unholy demonic abilities:

- Invulnerability: The armor of The Darkness makes the host impervious to physical attack.
- Superhuman Durability: Hosts of The Darkness can take/recover from gunshot wounds through his head, torso impalements, stone-shattering impacts, military missiles, point-blank C4 explosives, and the full impact of a helicopter crash with ease.
- Healing Factor: The Darkness heals in seconds from bullet wounds, vampire bites, cuts, stabs, broken bones, severe burns, torso impalements and even extreme sexual violence.

- Night vision: The Darkness can see perfectly in total darkness.
- Shapeshifting: The Darkness can change the shape (including voice and gender) of his host into any other he desires. He can manipulate his armor to morph into hammerfists, blades, claws, protective spikes, and fangs. He can also transform into a giant wolf, bird, and octopus.
- Teleportation: The Darkness can teleport anywhere in the universe but heaven through the shadows.
