So apparently Moench decided to completely invert the relationship and relative status of the Stranger and the Spectre from what Alan Moore had established in Swamp Thing? Interesting choice.
Yep, I've always read it that way. Moench's series had as its initial premise that the Spectre had been radically depowered as punishment for his failures in Crisis #10 and Swamp Thing # 50. Switching their positions and letting the Stranger boss around Spectre's comings and goings in the afterlife seemed to drive home the "how the mighty have fallen" message.
