They are listed below. the List: Lucifer, Gabriel and Raphael. Michael commands The Host of Heaven. Amongst the archangels, Michael is the oldest. Lucifer refers to him as his older brother5.04 The End
Michael can be summoned to Earth via a summoning ritual 5.18 Point Of No Return
In order for this to work one must shout the incantation: "Zodiredo noco aberamage nazodpesade."

When Lucifer refused God’s command to bow before humanity, he turned to Michael for support, but he refused and on God’s command, Michael cast Lucifer into Hell. 5.04 The End

"I was a son, a brother, like you, a younger brother. And I had an older brother who I loved. Idolized, in fact. And one day I went to him, and I begged him to stand with me. And Michael... Michael turned on me. Called me a freak, a monster, and then he beat me down. All because I was different, 'cause I had a mind of my own." - Lucifer 5.10 Abandon All Hope

Gabriel draws a clear parallel between Sam and Dean's destiny ("we knew it was all gonna end with you. Always.") and Lucifer and Michael's relationship 5.08 Changing Channels

"Michael, the big brother, loyal to an absent father, and Lucifer, the little brother, rebellious of Daddy's plan. You were born to this, boys. It's your destiny! It was always you! As it is in Heaven, so it must be on Earth. One brother has to kill the other." - Gabriel

Michael is behind the plan to allow Lilith to break The 66 Seals and get Lucifer freed from his cage, so that Micahel can destroy him.

Dean is Michael’s true Vessel - also referred to by Zachariah as Michael’s Sword.5.01 Sympathy For The Devil Michael tells Dean this is in his bloodline – which is why he can also use John Winchester and Adam Milligan as alternate "true" Vessels.

Powers&Abilities

Michael is the strongest angel in Heaven. However, Lucifer seems to be as strong as Michael. But Michael defeated him by means unknown. Because he is an archangel his power level exceeds that of other angels. Michael can resurrect the deceased. He proved this when he revived and raised Sam Winchester from the dead. Michael exhibits the following powers: teleportation, time travel, memory manipulation, super strength, the ability to incinerate a being by touch by means of Pyrokenesis, healing/resurrecting. He seemingly has a telepathic link with Zachariah from whom he gives orders. His angelic form is extremely powerful. His true voice was so overwhelming that it made several bartenders’ ears bleed uncontrollably. Michael's angelic spirit is so overwhelming that it will burn out any Vessel that is not within the Winchester bloodline.

Vulnerablities

Despite his powers there are a few methods that can trap or disable him. He proved to be vulnerable to Holy Fire.

Michael facts

  • Michael's name means "Who is like God"
  • Michael is the one responsible for casting Lucifer into Hell
  • Like all Angels, Michael requires a Vessel who must consent to his possession.
  • Michael has Three brothers, whose names are: Lucifer, Gabriel and Raphael.
  • Michael is the strongest Angel in Heaven
  • Most angels hold Michael in high regard, some angels even fear Michael for his power. Anna seemed to be frightened when she saw him.
  • He commands the Heavenly Host.
  • After being trapped in Lucifer's Cage, Castiel predicts that Heaven would be in chaos.

Season 5

Zachariah reveals that the Angel's plan is for Michael to use Dean Winchester as his Vessel and kill Lucifer once and for all. However, Dean needs to give his consent to be the Vessel.


Michael first appears when Sam, Dean and Castiel have travelled back to 1978 to stop Anna from killing John and Mary in order to prevent Sam’s birth, and thus his use as Lucifer’s Vessel.

Michael takes John Winchester as his Vessel temporarily – John consents when Michael says he can stop Anna from killing Mary.
Michael kills Anna and sends Uriel back to Heaven. He then explains to Dean that:

“Lucifer defied our Father and he betrayed me, but I don’t want this anymore than you would want to kill Sam. My brother, I raised him and looked after him in ways most people couldn’t understand, but I still love him. But I am going to kill him because it is right, and because I have to…”

Michael tells Dean that everything is pre-ordained, that “Free Will is an illusion Dean, that’s why you are going to say yes.”
He then heals Sam, and returns him and Dean to the present day. He removes all memories of the events of the day from Mary and John.


Seeing no other way to defeat Lucifer and save the planet, Dean finally consents to becoming Michael's vessel when Zachariah tortures Sam and their half-brother Adam Milligan (who was resurrected as leverage for Dean). Zachariah utters an incantation that summons Michael to their location only for Dean to kill Zachariah with an Angel Knife. Sam and Dean manage to escape before Michael descends, but Adam is trapped inside the room and vanishes, presumably by Michael's hand. Adam is technically a vessel, if only a temporary one, for Michael, being of the Winchester bloodline. It is unknown if the Archangel captured Adam for this purpose.



Castiel tells Dean, Sam and Bobby that Michael is currently using Adam as his Vessel.

Micahel burns with Holy Oil


After Lucifer joins with his true vessel, Sam, Michael appears in the Stull Cemetery outside of Lawrence, Kansas, to confront Lucifer for the final battle. Lucifer tries to convince Michael that they need not fight, but Michael is adamant that he be a "good son" to their Father, and is determined that they fight. Before they can do so, however; Dean arrives and demands to speak to Sam. Michael protests his presence, telling him he has no place on the field. But before he can do anything about it, Castiel hurls a Holy Oil molotov cocktail at the Archangel, forcing him to vanish for several minutes. When he returns, Sam has managed to regain control of his body and opened the gate to Lucifer's Cage. Michael demands a fight but Sam throws himself into the portal. Michael grabs hold of Sam to stop him from falling but is dragged down into the pit along with him, the portal closing behind them.

Michael in Art and Lore

Michael is an archangel in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic tradition. He is most well known as a leader of the armies of God against Lucifer.

Zachariah talks to Dean about his destiny

In 2.13 Houses of the Holy, Sam notices a painting of Michael by killing Lucifer by the renaissance painter Raphael in the Church they visit.

Father Reynolds: That's right. The archangel Michael, with the flaming sword. The fighter of demons, holy force against evil.
Sam: So they're not really the Hallmark card version that everybody thinks? They're fierce, right? Vigilant?
Father Reynolds: Well, I like to think of them as more loving than wrathful; but yes, a lot of Scripture paints angels as God's warriors. "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, the glory of the Lord shone down upon them, and they were terrified." Luke. Two nine.

When Zachariah tells Dean his destiny is to kill Lucifer he stands in front of a painting of the Archangel Michael killing Lucifer. The painting is Saint Michel terrassant le Dragon by 15th century Flemish painter Josse Lieferinxe.
