The Endless is a rather dysfunctional family of seven siblings who are each {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of seven concepts. They are the children of Night and Time and are implied to ''be'' the concepts they represent. In order of oldest to youngest, they are known as Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair, and Delirium. Each of the Endless has a realm in which they are completely omnipotent, and they can even shape the realm which is opposite to theirs. They are generally uncomfortable in each other's realms and only travel to each other's realms when it is completely necessary.

* {{God}}: Yeah.

* {{God}}: Yeah. Unlike in the Marvel Universe, where the various human deities are all around the same level of power and are subordinate to more [[CosmicEntity abstract cosmic beings]], The Presence is explicitly the Abrahamic Creator and the highest being. * GodInHumanForm: On the few occasions He does manifest, His preferred form is a pudgy British guy with a bowler hat and umbrella for some reason. * IHaveManyNames: He is typically called The Presence, but has manifested as [[Comicbook/TheSpectre the Voice]], [[Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths the Great Hand]], [[Comicbook/FinalCrisis the Overmonitor]], and [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Wally the God-boy]] amongst others. * TheMaker: Creator of the DC Universe. * TheOmnipotent: The be-all, end-all authority within TheMultiverse. However, He has no authority ''outside'' it, a loophole Lucifer exploits in his own series to become a Creator himself. * PassingTheTorch: At the end of ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}'' [[spoiler: He decides to retire and appoint His half-human granddaughter Elaine Belloc, daughter of ArchangelMichael and a mortal woman, as His successor]].

Gaiman's ''Sandman'' revealed that as a result of Dream's imprisonment during the 20th century, some mortals were affected by the cosmic imbalance. Dodds held a piece of the Dreaming inside him, and this was the cause of his prophetic dreams. Dodds also had his own, 1930s-set Vertigo series ''SandmanMysteryTheatre''.

* DemotedToExtra: Reading ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' can be a bit jarring if you're a fan of ''SandmanMysteryTheatre''. After the Golden Age Sandman spent years as the hero of his own cult classic series, he's reduced to a mere scene-filler in JSA.
