With the [[Apocalypse]] having gone forward, Michael emerged as victor, having killed Lucifer at some point in the past over Abilene. Having conquered the planet, Michael did not bring paradise to
earth, but continued to fight various battles and wars against humans and demons, ravaging the planet and turning it into [[Apocalypse World|a post-Apocalyptic wasteland]] after [[God]] failed to return after Lucifer's defeat.
Once Michael took over [[Dean Winchester]] as his [[vessel]], he stated his intent to "do it right" in the Winchester's world. Due to his ability to tap into Dean's memories, Michael came to the belief that God / Chuck
moves from one universe to another when He realizes each is flawed, causing Michael to change his plans from trying to bring paradise to the world to burning it down and moving on to other universes to do the same until he catches up with his Father.
Possessing an unknown man in [[Apocalypse World]], Michael would appear in a dark trench coat. [[Lucifer]] called him stronger than the [[Michael]] of his universe and he easily defeated Lucifer in a fight, after his vessel was damaged by [[Jack]]'s power, Michael declared himself unable to beat Lucifer again. In the body of [[Dean Winchester]], Michael was stated to be stronger than he had ever been.
After gaining consent, Michael initially lent Dean access to several of his powers to fight Lucifer, particularly his teleportation, strength, and flight capabilities. After Lucifer's death Michael took full control of Dean's body and disappeared into the world. Michael also
would go on to change Dean's attire from plaid to a 1920s-style suit and cap.
Due to leaving the door open a crack in Dean's mind when he left, Michael possessed the ability to see through Dean's eyes even when he was not in his body, resulting in dizzy spells for Dean. Even while locked away inside of Dean's mind and cut off from all contact with his [[Michael's Monsters|monsters]], Michael appeared to be aware of what was going on in the world around him as he knew about Dean's plan with the [[Ma'lak Box]] without being told.
