The Confessor can refer to two different heroes:
- The Confessor (Jeremiah Parrish), The original Confessor, prowled the streets of Astro Cities from the 1950s until his death in 1997.
- The Confessor (Brian Kinney), started out as Altar Boy, a partner to the original Confessor.
The Confessor — a 19th century priest, Jeremiah Parrish, who fell into sin and was reborn under a curse. He became the Confessor to atone, spending decades as a little-seen, much-feared nighttime hero before sacrificing himself to save the city in 1997. His role has since been assumed by Brian Kinney, formerly the Confessor's sidekick Altar Boy.
