    Apocalypse World In Supernatural

An Alternate Universe first accessed in "All Along the Watchtower" (S12, E23) due to the birth of the Nephilim Jack creating a rift between two worlds. The Apocalypse World is an alternate reality in which Mary Campbell refused the deal that Azazel offered to her and thus John Winchester was never brought back to life. Without John's resurrection, Dean and Sam Winchester were never born, thus preventing Lucifer and Michael from gaining their proper vessels. The Apocalypse still occurred anyway, although in this reality, Heaven was victorious and Lucifer was smote by Michael. Instead of returning to Heaven, the angels turned their attention to humanity and began a seven-year purge. Now the remaining humans are in an ongoing and seemingly futile war with their saviors-turned-oppressors.


  • After the End: While the main Supernatural universe is not exactly peachy, it seems relatively okay compared to the burned-out ruins that make up the Apocalypse World wherein angels are regularly murdering humans, demons have become more bestial in nature, and the few surviving humans are in a desperate war just to survive.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart:
    • Michael has killed his version of Lucifer. No mention of what happened to Raphael or Gabriel, however. By "Let the Good Times Roll", both Lucifers are officially dead.
    • This universe's counterpart of Mary was killed by Azazel in 2007 and stays dead. This raises the possibility of the alternate Azazel being alive somewhere (interestingly, the main Azazel was also killed in 2007).
    • Linda Tran is offhandedly mentioned to be dead. Her main counterpart is still alive (although we haven't see her since Season 9).
    • This is inverted for some characters. Balthazar, Bobby, Charlie, Kevin, and Zachariah are still alive when the Winchesters first visit the Apocalypse World, whereas their main counterparts are already long dead. Balthazar, Kevin, and Zachariah kick the bucket throughout Season 13, but Bobby and Charlie are still around and kicking.
  • Deliberately Monochrome: The Apocalypse World is rendered in a lot of grey and muted colors in order to show how much of a screwed-up place it is even when compared to the main universe.
  • Dying Race: There are only a few humans left and their numbers are steadily declining. Demons and monsters seem to share the same fate.
  • Expendable Alternate Universe: Defied; the Winchesters do everything within their power to save as many people as possible from this dimension, relocating an entire settlement of them to the Prime Universe.
  • For Want of a Nail: Due to Mary Winchester refusing the deal given to her by Azazel, a number of changes ended up happening to this world in comparison to the main one. For instance:
    • John was never resurrected after Azazel killed him in 1973, which means that Sam and Dean were never born and became hunters. Since they were never born, there was no way for the Apocalypse to be aborted and humanity is on the verge of complete destruction.
    • Mary was still alive until 2007, while her main counterpart was killed in 1983 as payment for the aforementioned John's resurrection. She is dead now, but because of a completely different reason.
    • Bobby was never killed by Dick Roman since the Leviathans were never unleashed in this world, and he is the leader of the La Résistance of the Apocalypse World. He also had a son named Daniel, unlike the main universe where he refused to have one.
    • Charlie was never killed by the Styne family and is one of the leaders of the La Résistance of the Apocalypse World.
    • Kevin lost everyone he cared about and was coerced into helping Michael in order to see his mother again.
    • Zachariah wasn't killed by Dean; he's still serving as Michael's lieutenant and chief interrogator.
    • Similarly, Balthazar wasn't killed by Castiel since the angel civil war never occurred. He is serving as a general in Michael's army.
    • Castiel is an unhinged Torture Technician in Michael's army.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Despite neither Dean or Sam being born in this reality, Lucifer was still able to escape the Cage and the Apocalypse still occurred (understandable, as our Michael wanted Lucifer freed so he could kill him and kickstart the Apocalypse). The only problem is it never actually ended.
  • Our Demons Are Different: There's a type of demon in this reality called Tempter Demons and deviate from the main universe demons with the presence of the stereotypical horns.
  • Slave Race: Michael reveals in "Nihilism" that in this universe, Death was "locked away", with reapers subsequently becoming slaves of angels.

Forces of Heaven


Portrayed by: Christian Keyes, Jensen Ackles, Felisha Terrell, Ruth Connell

First appearance: "The Rising Son" (S13, Ep02)

Rank in Heaven: Heaven's leader
Even God can die.Spoilers! Click here to see Michael in his true vessel. 

The ruler of Heaven and, by extension, the Apocalypse World. This version of Michael is a bloodthirsty tyrant who decided to wipe out humanity after destroying his world's Lucifer. Despite having control over the Apocalypse World, Michael has greater ambitions in mind and seeks to conquer other worlds, a process made much easier by the arrival of the main universe's Lucifer.

  • Always Someone Better: Proves to be this to Lucifer, handily defeating both his main universe and Apocalypse World counterparts easily. In fact, according to Lucifer, he might even be stronger then the main universe's Michael. Proves it in the finale, when his power allows Dean to kill the Nephilim-powered Lucifer once and for all.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: As is standard for archangels. Notably, he's the only character in the Apocalypse World shown to be able to effortlessly ragdoll Jack, who is easily more powerful than any normal angel. In the season 13 finale, after he acquires his perfect vessel (aka Dean), he also ends up killing main universe Lucifer, at that time an Archangel-Nephilim hybrid, though this takes considerably more effort than his previous fights.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: His standard garb when possessing Dean.
  • Badass Longcoat: Is never seen without one in either of his vessels.
  • Bad Boss: Has absolutely no qualms with threatening the lives of his soldiers if he thinks it will get them to work more productively. For example, our Michael gave his Zachariah multiple chances to succeed in his plans, to the point where even Zachariah himself was surprised at not being immolated for failure. AU Michael, by contrast, loses patience with AU Zachariah's Mind Rape tactics on Jack incredibly quickly and warns him not to fail again.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: By the end of Season 13 not only does Michael manage to enter the main universe, his goal for the entire season, he now has his "sword" (aka Dean's body) as his perfect vessel which makes his defeat seem almost impossible now.
  • Batman Gambit: As revealed in "The Spear", Michael willingly left Dean in "Gods and Monsters" because he was having difficulty controlling him, as Dean fought with all his might to break free. However, Michael was able to create a crack, which grows larger as he struggles with PTSD, so that when he possesses Dean again, the latter would be sufficiently weakened to the point that he will not be able to fight back.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 14, having killed Lucifer in the Season 13 finale and taken Dean as his vessel. Michael plans on enhancing the monsters with his Grace and use them to cause destruction to the world to spite God. Even after his death, all the bad things that happen afterwards including Jack losing his soul, going hostile, and attracting God's attention which would lead to His true nature being revealed, are a direct result of Michael's actions.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Is one of the two main villains of Season 13, along with Lucifer. Between the two he is the greater threat due to his plan to invade the main Universe and his sheer power. However, since he spends most of his time in the Apocalypse World it's up to Lucifer to carry most of the season. In the season finale though, Michael is forced into a Enemy Mine with the Winchesters when Lucifer proves too dangerous for even him to deal with.
  • Blood Knight: Has a sick, sadistic smile on his face when killing Gabriel, and later expounds to Dean how much he's enjoying drawing out beating him to death.
  • Body Surf: During Season 14, he inhabits the bodies of Dean Winchester, an unnamed woman, and Rowena MacLeod.
  • Cain and Abel: Not only did he tear apart his version of Lucifer in a battle in the skies, but he later kills his other brother Gabriel. With Dean as his vessel, he eventually kills our Lucifer as well.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Effortlessly thrashes main universe Lucifer, and only leaves him alive due to needing the power of another archangel to break into other universes. Wrecks Lucifer again near the end of Season 13, and easily kills Gabriel in the same episode.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Suits his delivery very well.
    Anael: You're're not Dean Winchester... oh, God.
    Michael: People keep calling me that.
  • Deal with the Devil:
    • Literally (though unlike most examples of the trope he's both more powerful and far more evil than our Lucifer) - Lucifer knows the spell that accesses the main universe, so he cuts a deal to give Michael the spell in return for his son Jack.
    • Ironically, Michael himself becomes the Devil when Dean offers to temporarily let himself become his vessel in exchange for using his powers to fight Lucifer and save the universe from his wrath. He ends up reneging on the temporary part and possesses Dean permanently after they manage to kill the Devil.
    • As part of his plan to create a perfect world in Season 14, Michael offers many beings, including humans, angels, and monsters, the things they crave most. However, if he sees any kind of hypocrisy (in case of humans) or weakness (in case of angels, which amounts to possessing humane qualities) in them, he won't grant them. And considering what we've seen about him so far, having your wish granted probably is not a good outcome, either.
  • Despair Event Horizon: It's implied he basically crossed it either when God never returned after Michael killed his world's Lucifer, or when he read Dean's memories and came to the conclusion that all the parallel universes were nothing more than "failed drafts" to God.
  • Disappeared Dad: A big part of why he's so much worse than the Michael we saw in season 5. Like him, this Michael dutifully saw out his part in the Apocalypse and killed his brother Lucifer in hopes that God would finally return. But he didn't, even when the angels turned Earth into a wasteland and hunted humans almost to extinction, leading Michael to conclude (rightly) that God had abandoned their universe entirely. After possessing Dean he believes that each alternate universe is a failed draft of God's (something God later confirms in "Galaxy Brain") that didn't pan out for whatever reason, and that he's going to destroy each one until he catches up to his Father - and then he'll find out if God can die...
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He is killed by Jack several episodes before the season 14 finale.
  • The Dreaded: Naturally, as the strongest angel in the universe, everyone has had their own Oh, Crap! moment when they meet him. The only people seen so far who could match him are Jack (when he is really pissed off) and Lucifer (after he absorbs Jack's power). Everyone else is beneath him. Case in point: when Anael (a low-ranking angel) realizes who he is, she immediately makes a run for it.
  • Enemy Mine: Loathes the Winchesters, but is well aware Lucifer powered up on Jack's grace is a nightmare waiting to happen. Consequently, he's willing to cut a deal - taking Dean as his vessel in order to stop his alternate brother.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • He may have turned his reality's Earth into a hellhole where humans are hunted to near-extinction, but he doesn't desire the end of everything like Lucifer (fuelled by Jack's grace and sheer spite of his father's creations) does, consequently allying his power with Dean to kill the Devil. May count as Pragmatic Villainy given that he immediately reneges on his deal with Dean and comes out of it with his main rival dead and with the perfect vessel to further his goals. It's later revealed that he didn't want Lucifer stealing his thunder; Michael himself plans on wreaking havoc across the multiverse before he can finally kill God and replace him.
    • "Stranger in a Strange Land" reveals that he doesn't have a high opinion of hypocrites, as he rejects a man's wish for peace and love, despite the fact that he cheated on his wife and left his friends to die in a war zone.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: The main reality's Michael was no hero (generally he was an Anti-Villain), but Castiel rightfully notes that this version of Michael is much, much more evil and dangerous.
  • Eviler than Thou: Zig-Zagged. At first, he's the Eviler one to the main reality's Lucifer, being powerful enough to No-Sell and overpower him almost instantly and being acknowledged by Luci himself as actually being eviler. Later, the order is switched around when Lucifer absorbs Jack's Grace and threatens to dismantle the entire universe.
  • Evil Plan: Michael wants to create a superpowered monster army. To do this, he infuses monsters with angel grace. "The Spear" reveals that he also plans to turn the entire population of Kansas City into monsters.
  • Evil Uncle: To Jack, the son of an alternate version of his brother Lucifer. Michael tortures and torments his nephew in attempt to harness his powers, though he at least spares Jack and Sam and leaves in peace after killing Lucifer, with Jack powerless against Michael. On the other hand, sparing Jack and Sam was likely to keep his new vessel Dean from retaliating.
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: As Ax-Crazy as he is, it's revealed that in a sick and twisted way he wants and believes that he's purging all realities of sin, and doesn't want the destruction of all creation. That changes after he views Dean's memories.
  • Evil Versus Evil: Played with. He fights Lucifer multiple times throughout season 13 and wins every time. For the first two he's the more Obviously Evil of the two once it becomes apparent he's the reason the Apocalypse World is the way it is. Their last battle, on the other hand, sees Lucifer as the bigger threat once he steals Jack's grace. It's a bit of a subversion though, as Dean is in control at that point.
  • Gender Bender:
    • After leaving Dean in "Gods and Monsters", Michael possesses a woman from Kansas City, though everyone still invariably calls him a "he". He goes back to possessing Dean in "The Spear".
    • His latest vessel as of "Ouroboros" is Rowena, though it does not last long.
  • Hero Killer: Kills Gabriel as the team escapes from the Apocalypse World.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Michael desires to purge all worlds of sin, but has become a Blood Knight who destroyed his own world.
  • Invincible Villain: The most powerful archangel ever seen in the series - Lucifer even says he's stronger than our Michael - he's nigh-unstoppable, especially once he takes Dean as his perfect vessel. It eventually takes Jack tapping into his full power - and burning away his soul in the process - to kill him.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • Sends Zachariah to kill the escaped Jack and Mary, and flatly tells him to kill Mary first to make Jack suffer.
    • He makes Kevin Tran turn himself into an angel bomb to kill as many resistance members as he can knowing that it wouldn't harm Jack but wanting to show him that, even if he won, he would still lose.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Asmodeus and Lucifer had occasional moments of levity throughout Season 13, but you know that things are gonna get bad when he shows up.
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: The original Michael is this compared to him. While he's still evil, he at least was still driven by genuine devotion to his Father's divine plan and regretted having to kill his own brother. This version of Michael, on the other hand, lost his faith when God failed to reappear after Lucifer's death, and, driven by nihilism and spite, brought about desolation on Earth and nearly hunted the human race to extinction.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: Michael had plans to invade another Universe and take it over long before Lucifer showed up. He just needed his brother's Grace in order to set it in motion. He later reveals this to be part of his long-term plan to desecrate enough universes until God will stop his All-Powerful Bystander act and confront him.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: While it's unlikely it was intentional, his genocidal regime against the humans of his world is disturbingly reminiscent of the Holocaust. He's not even satisfied with purging his own world, desiring to invade other worlds and wipe out mankind from all universes.
  • The Nth Doctor: This Michael's vessel is not John (who is long dead) or Adam (who is never born). But he's aware of Dean's status as our Michael's true vessel, and cuts a deal with Dean to possess him in order to stop a powered-up Lucifer.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Reading Dean's memories of encounters with Chuck make Michael become this — he states his evil actions at first began as trying to be a better God than his Father, but now he just intends to burn down every parallel universe until he catches up to Chuck, and then he'll kill him.
  • The Omniscient: Not totally, in keeping with the series' rules for God and angels, but he's somehow aware of a lot of knowledge about our universe that's never communicated to him onscreen, such as Dean being the perfect vessel for our Michael, or Anael's rebel-against-Heaven status.
  • Pride: When a Muslim man whose wish he asks misidentifies him as Gabriel (understandable, since Gabriel is far more important than Michael in Islam), he corrects this by stating that he is "the better one".
  • Rage Against the Heavens: In "Nihilism", Michael reveals the reason why he is so bent on destroying worlds: he believes that God never cares about the worlds he created, so he would destroy them out of spite before ultimately killing the Big Guy, becoming "more God than God".
  • Sadist: He's a lot crueller than the main Michael, who took no joy in bringing about the Apocalypse. He notably tells Dean he's taking his time killing him because he's enjoying it, and that the moment when the soul finally leaves the body on death is "beautiful".
  • Scary Black Man: The vessel he uses through the majority of season 13 is an African American man and he is far more vicious and evil then his main Universe counterpart. He discards the vessel in the season finale in favor of Dean.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: As of "Nihilism", he's trapped inside a locked room buried in Dean Winchester's mind. He eventually does escape, and possesses Rowena before his demise at Jack's hands.
  • Straw Nihilist: Michael states that he fought and killed his version of Lucifer in the hopes that God would return. When he didn't, Michael concluded (correctly, as it turned out) that God didn't care about any of the worlds he had created, and resolved to destroy everything until he could get revenge on God by killing him.
  • Tears of Blood: After Jack thoroughly wrecks him with his powers at the end of Season 13.
  • There Is No Kill like Overkill: Personally responsible for the deaths of two Lucifers: one from the main universe, and the other from the Apocalypse World.
  • Time Abyss: He takes a rather nihilistic view on life because of his age, impressing Jack that he's already seen so many species and civilizations thrive before disappearing just as quickly that wiping out humanity won't mean a thing.
  • Torture Technician: Michael has his own personal Iron Maiden in the Church that he calls his base which he hangs his favourite prisoners on and allows them to be impaled by spikes over and over again.
  • Villain Has a Point: He tells Castiel that after seeing inside Dean's head he believes God didn't care about his world or any of the others he created, seeing them as failed drafts to be abandoned once they failed to achieve perfection. It turns out at the end of the season he essentially had it right, and that God has only ever cared about the story of the Winchesters all along.
  • Villainous Legacy: Surprisingly positive ones.
    • His Motive Rant to Castiel and Sam when he's their prisoner resonates, and when God returns he's visibly thrown when Sam asks him if any of it was true. Once God seems a little too eager for Dean to kill Jack, this leads Sam to put the pieces together and realise that God is the Greater-Scope Villain who's been making their lives a misery from the start.
    • When the main universe's Michael finally returns, Castiel shows him his memories in an effort to convince him that God is actually evil - and it's his memories of this Michael's actions (and realisation he wasn't even the only Michael) that finally cause him to turn on his Father.
  • We Can Rule Together: He intends for Jack to ultimately join his cause, even if it will take centuries.
  • World's Strongest Man: Much like his main universe counterpart Michael is Heaven's greatest warrior and the strongest being in his own universe thanks to the absence of God. The finale of Season 13 shows that, with his perfect vessel, Michael is not strong enough to defeat a Nephilim powered Lucifer but is able to kill him with an archangel-blade, thus leaving himself as the strongest being in both universes (again with the absence of God and Amara.

    Kevin Tran 

Portrayed by: Osric Chau

First appearance: "War of the Worlds" (S13, Ep07)

Rank in Heaven: Prophet

The alternate counterpart of Kevin Tran. Like the other Kevin, he is a prophet, and unlike him, he is dutifully following the tasks it entails as an agent of God, working to open the Rift for Michael.

  • All Men Are Perverts: Ostensibly promised "hot women" by Michael in return for working under him. The truth is harsher than that.
  • Apologetic Attacker: Kevin apologises to Jack and the rest of the members of the Resistance in tears before he sets of the bomb that kills all but Jack and Mary.
  • Black-and-White Morality: Considers Michael as good and Lucifer bad, because that's what the good book says.
  • Les Collaborateurs: The Resistance see him as a turncloack, but it's clear that Michael has forced and brainwashed him into servitude.
  • Literal-Minded: When Michael calls him a "worm", Kevin responds that he's a vertebrate.
  • I've Come Too Far: Kevin eventually realises that he has done truly awful things by siding with Michael but he has done to much to relent now even if that means blowing himself up to kill as many Resistance members as possible.
  • Love Makes You Evil: He wants to meet with his dead mother, even if he has to kill several resistance members for it.
  • Suicide Attack: Michael orders him to set a trap to kill the leaders of the Resistance, particularly Bobby, using an explosive suicide spell. When Bobby doesn't show up, he settles on killing everyone in the room for him except for Jack and Mary.
  • Token Human: The only human working for Heaven.
  • Trapped in Villainy: Kevin is shown to be in remorse for the terrible things he's done for Heaven but decides he has to do them so he can be reunited with his mother in Heaven.


Portrayed by: Chad Rook

First appearance: "Good Intentions" (S13, Ep14)

Rank in Heaven: Lieutenant to Michael

The alternate counterpart of Zachariah. As with his counterpart, he works under Michael.

  • Flight: Unlike most angels whose "flight" is more akin to teleportation, he can be seen traversing the sky by taking a form similar to a comet.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Much like his main Universe counterpart Zachariah is fond of manipulating his targets to reveal information such as first showing Jack a vision of Sam and Dean burning alive and being unable to save them then switching things up by making Castiel appear and trying to convince him to turn on humanity.
  • Mind Rape: He attempts to court Jack into joining the Host of Heaven by showing him horrific visions. It fails.
  • The Nth Doctor: Chad Rook replaces Kurt Fuller in this version of Zachariah. In-story, Zachariah's other vessel (a middle-aged businessman) is presumably dead. And given how angel hosts follow bloodlines, they're probably related.


Portrayed by: Misha Collins

First appearance: "Exodus" (S13, Ep22)

Rank in Heaven: Torturer

The alternate counterpart of Castiel. This universe's Castiel does not befriend the Winchester brothers (who are never born) and as a result does not join Team Free Will. He works as a personal torturer for Heaven.

  • Heel–Face Turn: Averted. The Apocalypse World shows what happens if Castiel never meets the Winchesters. He keeps the whole angel-supremacy-over-human attitude and becomes a sadistic Torture Technician.
  • Killing Your Alternate Self: Gets killed by main universe Castiel.
  • Mind Rape: Uses this to force information out of Charlie.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: Inexplicably has a German accent, which combined with what he does is a very blatant evocation to the Nazis.
  • Other Me Annoys Me: Is annoyed that the other Castiel is allying himself with humans over angels.
  • Red Right Hand: One of his vessel's eyes is clouded over.
  • Torture Technician: His current job. This references the mainstream Castiel's dark side, who is noted to be a more experienced torturer than someone like Crowley.
  • Unexplained Accent: He has a German accent probably to make him Nazi-like but there is no In-Universe reason given as to why he would have it. No other character's counterpart has a different accent.


The Resistance

    Bobby Singer 

Portrayed by: Jim Beaver

First appearance: "All Along the Watchtower" (S12, Ep23)

A former hunter and the alternate counterpart of Bobby Singer. Here he leads a colony of humanity's survivors, with the intent of fighting off angels.

  • Big Good: As Bobby lampshades to Mary he is pretty much all Apocalypse World has to stand against Michael and his angels.
  • Cool Old Guy: Like his main counterpart.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His wife died of unnatural causes, then he lost his remaining family when Daniel was killed by angels during an assignment.
  • Death Seeker: In "Nightmare Logic", Bobby states that after the death of Daniel, literally the only thing that keeps him moving was his responsibility to protect what's humans left. And even he was starting to lose hope until just before he met the Winchesters.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First appears at the end of Season 12, when the rift to the alternate reality first opens, and where he saves Castiel from a demon. He also serves as Mr. Exposition in order to let Sam, Dean, Cas, and the audience know how exactly this alternate universe became absolute hell.
  • Fantastic Racism: Is livid upon learning that Jack is a Nephilim, and wants him gone. Thankfully, he comes around once Jack defends their colony from Zachariah's attacks.
  • A Father to His Men: Calls his colony a "family" at the end of "Exodus", and welcomes the Winchesters into it. He also mentions that they will go back for the other survivors once they get the chance.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Hates angels, but comes around to Jack and is fond of the boys.
  • The Leader: Of his colony.
  • Like a Son to Me: Not as much as his main counterpart, but eventually comes to view Sam and Dean in this way after they save his colony and provide them with refuge in the main reality.
  • Mr. Exposition: Serves as this to flesh out the backstory of the alternate reality, which is one where Mary Campbell never made a deal with Azazel to bring John Winchester back to life.
  • My Greatest Failure: As revealed in "Nightmare Logic", he still blames himself for letting his son, Daniel, get captured and subsequently executed by angels.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Unlike his main universe counterpart, the Alternate Bobby had a son who was captured and brutally killed by angels during a mission.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Replaces the main reality's Bobby for Sam and Dean with the main Bobby long dead and now in Heaven. Sam and Dean have no trouble accepting him as the new Bobby and the new Bobby soon becomes close to them, despite no alternate Sam and Dean Winchester having existed in his universe. The implications are pointed out in this fan post.
  • Ship Tease: With Mary. "Nightmare Logic" is close to shedding the teasing part; by the episode's ending, both decide to move to Donna's cabin to recuperate together.
  • Staking the Loved One: Despite the real deal being dead, Bobby still hesitates to kill the Ax-Crazy Djinn-manifestation of Daniel.

    Charlie Bradbury 

Portrayed by: Felicia Day

First appearance: "Brim 'em Back Alive" (S13, Ep18)

The alternate counterpart of Charlie Bradbury. Unlike her main universe counterpart, she never becomes a hunter, but she is not a helpless hacker, either. Instead, Charlie still Took a Level in Badass and is one of the top leaders of the Resistance.

  • Damsel in Distress: In "Bring 'em Back Alive" and "Exodus", she gets captured and tortured by angels.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: As with all Apocalypse World residents, Charlie has a troubled past of her own: when the angels disabled communication on Earth, she, her girlfriend Kara, and others had to depend on rationed food. When it began to dwindle, there was a riot and Kara was killed in the confusion.
  • Defiant to the End: Refuses to reveal anything about Resistance even when threatened with decapitation.
  • Dude, She's A Lesbian: Inverted. Dean tells her that her alternate counterpart is a lesbian. She likes her already.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: In "Optimism", Charlie states that she stopped believing in society after her girlfriend died during the collapsing world order of her Earth and hopes that she can live somewhere alone. Sam slowly talks her out of this.
  • I Choose to Stay:
    • At the end of her introduction episode, she prefers dealing with her universe's problem head on, rather than escaping to the main universe. However, in "Exodus", circumstances force her to escape anyway.
    • In "Optimism", she decides to postpone her plan to leave Team Free Will after the Musca case.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Like her main counterpart, she is a lesbian and worked as an IT employee in Richard Roman Enterprises (albeit one that didn't get taken over by the Leviathans).
  • The Lost Lenore: Charlie never completely moves on from losing her girlfriend, Kara, who died during the confusion that ensued when the angels began invading her Earth.
  • Odd Friendship: With Ketch and Rowena, both of whom had a Heel–Face Turn and are now on the side of good. It's even noted in passing that Charlie and Rowena decided to go on a road trip in the Season 13 finale.
  • Replacement Goldfish: As with Bobby, the Winchesters regard the alternate Charlie as a replacement for the closest figure they had of a sister pretty quickly. "Optimism", however, reveals that Charlie does not like being compared with her alternate self all the time, one of the reasons why she tries to find a new life of her own.


Portrayed by: Katherine Evans

First appearance: "Beat the Devil" (S13, Ep21)

A hunter whom the Winchesters save from a couple of rabid vampires while searching for Mary and Jack in the Apocalypse World. She and her friend Floyd tag along with them to meet with the Resistance members.

  • Action Girl: As a hunter.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Among the alt-universe hunters, Maggie is the youngest, therefore everyone dotes on her.
  • Back from the Dead: Lucifer resurrects Maggie upon Jack's request. Reluctantly, since he is the one who killed her in the first place.
  • Bloody Horror: Lucifer bashing her to a rock repeatedly is messy to say the least. Thankfully, we only see the aftermath.
  • Damsel in Distress: In "Beat the Devil" and "Nightmare Logic".
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Neil the Djinn mentions during his Motive Rant to Dean that Maggie's entire family were murdered by vampires in the Apocalypse World.
  • Killed Offscreen: "Let the Good Times Roll" opens with Bobby and Mary discovering Maggie's bloodied corpse in the forest outside the Men of Letters bunker. It gets undone by the end of the episode.
  • Leave No Witnesses: Lucifer kills her to dispose of any witness to his spying on Jack. It comes back to bite him in the ass.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She accidentally sees Lucifer spying on Jack. This sets off a chain reaction of events. At the end of it, Jack loses his grace, Michael possesses Dean, and Lucifer is dead.
  • Sole Survivor: She and Floyd are the only survivors of a band of hunters attacked by rabid vampires. Floyd is later killed by a vampire while navigating a tunnel, so she is the last one left.
