More information on this character is available here: Mother of Existence.
The enigmatic and nameless Mother Of Existence (Man of Miracles or M.O.M. for short) is an, ageless, mysterious, gender-less, super-being, featured in the Spawn comic book series.
The Creator (under the ailias Man of Miracles) has appeared to offer it's guidance and wisdom to the Hellspawn so that she might play her part in Armageddon. It is an ageless being of practically inconceivable power who has been the architect behind most of the events in the Spawn universe, holding significant knowledge of Al Simmons and his role as Spawn, knowledge that not even Mammon possesses and possessing powers beyond that of God or Satan. It's true form is as the Mother of Existence, though it is neither female nor male, it is able to cast an illusion to make itself look male.
It is revealed that Creator/Man of Miracles is in fact the one who walked among mortals as "Jesus Christ", and thus was actually independent of God in the Spawn universe. The twelve heavenly warriors known as the Disciples, formed from the souls of the Twelve Apostles, actually follow Man of Miracles above God.
Creator gave each of it's infinite children a world to run as they wish; God and Satan were both given Earth. God and Satan constantly bickered and fought to the point where they declared war on one another. Mankind, being created by God (from The Creator's energy) but given free will by Satan, became unique and Creator instantly fell in love with them and decided to act on their behalf, rather than let it's children use them as cannon fodder. Creator stripped both of it's children of their kingdoms and made them sleep in a forgotten corner of the universe. Creator then came to Earth as Jesus Christ, spreading a message of love and tolerance. This message being corrupted by mankind, Creator saw that Armageddon was inevitable. Giving mankind a chance to survive, Creator preserved all the souls that had died in the same hour as Al Simmons and placed them inside of Spawn. Spawn represents the potential of mankind and must prove that humanity is worth saving from God and Satan's feud. Creator brought back God and Satan as the human children of Terry and Wanda Fitzgerald in order to give them an appreciation for humanity and change their ways. This plan failed, as the twins simply became more insane then before and wreaked further chaos on Earth. They have since regained their memories, powers, and kingdoms and are bolstering their armies for the final push that will begin Armageddon.
M.O.M.'s appearance changes depending upon who is perceiving it. It has appeared as an anime-inspired hero, as Miracleman, as a mysterious, beautiful, nude woman covered in ivy who was presumably Gaea, Jesus Christ and, in it's true form, as the Creator of Creation: a Caucasian skinned, beautiful, nude woman with a masculine body. When cloaked in her illusion, people see her as they want to, and she subsequently explains that this is because reality is far more malleable than humanity believes. In her anime guise, M.O.M.'s look changes consistently from panel to panel. The tattoos on it's face are different each time, the logo on it's chest appears and reappears and sometimes it's shirt disappears but it's logo remains visible on it's skin. It is unknown why there is such little consistency to it's look in this form.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit
This character, especially in first appearances, was very similar to the character Miracleman (also known as Marvelman), popularized in the Eclipse Comics series written by Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman. The rights to the character of Miracleman are heavily contested, though (particularly by Todd McFarlane and Neil Gaiman) and the Man of Miracles character was later seemingly developed to be different to Miracleman, presumably to avoid any issues of legal ownership. In his original appearance he is named Mike Moran, the human identity of Miracleman. His costume is also a variation of that of Miracleman.
