God being the top. From him down does anyone have a current DC Universe Power Hierarchy. That makes sense?

Just my Opinion:

The Presence (With GEB)
The Presence (without GEB) = GEB
Michael = Lucifer (though Vertigo just make things difficult to understand) =(?) The Source
Spectre (full powered, no jobbing) = Radiant
Superman Thoughtbot (ugh! I hate this "cheat" plot device) = Mandrakk
Emotional Entities
COIE Anti-Monitor
Quintissence = (?) Darkseid = Guardians of the Universe = Kismet

Haha! I just know I'm sooooooooooo wrong.. LOL

Within the DCU post-flashpoint, excluding Vertigo... because they seem to operate on a different world, incomplete list:

Tier 1 (omniversals): God, Superjudge, The Empty Hand.(Basically the people who can affect it all pretty much from where they are)

Tier 2 (multi-universals): Barbatos, Darkseid, Trigon, Blight, Pralaya. (Things that are a danger to multiple universes because they can move between them as they see fit.)

Tier 3 (universals): Spectre, Trinity of Sin, 'Over' Monitor, Omega Titans, Emotional Entities, Guardians. (Powerful stuff that for one reason or another sticks to being in one universe.)
