Michael Landon, who became the Antichrist, was connected to a society of warlocks and became their Alpha, or the male version of a Supreme. A major element of Coven involved the rise of the new Supreme after Fiona Goode (Jessica Large) was diagnosed with cancer.
Though Fiona wasn't keen on losing her mantle, the young witches who arrived at Miss Robichaux's Academy all competed for the coveted spot, and eventually performed the Seven Wonders to see who would be the next Supreme. Cordelia Goode (Sarah Paulson) ended up being the one to take over for her mother, and she was the one who led her coven in season 8 against the Antichrist as well.
Conversely, witches are often more celebrated in media than men, even if warlocks and other male magical practitioners can occasionally pack a stronger punch. In a 2013 interview, Ryan Murphy discussed that warlocks were going to be a bigger part of the interconnected American Horror Story universe.
Supposedly, he could make them morepowerfulthan the Supreme, and earn them a more coveted spot in the magical world's matriarchy. Though the other aspects that Murphy teased haven't necessarily come to fruition on American Horror Story yet, he has talked about bringing back the witches from Coven once more ; the show has been renewed through season 13, so it's likely only a matter of time.

Update 2:see, the Warlock can “lock” the witches powers in the Norse belief, according to the guy who just said it. In the days when it was mostly women getting slaughtered for being witches (reckoned by some to have been a Holocaust of 9 million women over a couple of centuries in Europe) warlock was the term sometimes applied to male witches.
Lol After which you have magician (able to affect the weather), conjurer (manifest things from thin air), then full-fledged shaman. The reason why witches and warlocks are so low in the pecking order is because their spell don't ask they command.
Commanding is taking free will away from the subject they are working with and will create bad karma. A warlock is dangerous to a coven, because warlocks strive to overpower and enamor the coven with a distinctly masculine relationship to energy -- that verges on Satanism, not Wicca.
A balanced, mixed sex coven has male and female witches who are interested in flow, not dominance. As Him, Warlock possessed superhuman strength, stamina, agility and the ability to manipulate cosmic energy to enhance physical strength, endurance, and powers of recuperation (capable of creating a cocoon around himself for self-preservation and regeneration).
Years later when reemerging from the Soul Gem, Warlock appeared to have enhanced abilities in terms of both his physical capabilities, cosmic awareness and capacity for metaphysical manipulations, such as his granting of enhanced strength to Zamora and Pip in their new bodies. Warlock can, however, now create force fields around himself and others, manipulate metaphysical energy, travel faster than light and detect wormholes and other irregularities in space.
It is not a male dominated society like Patriarchal Christianity is. 'Warlock' is just a name for a male witch but not a term typically used today.
Through study, discipline and personal potential, practitioners of witchcraft have the ability to tap into and manipulate the mystical arts of the universe by psychic, physical and chemical means (“ magic “). The full extent of their powers are unrevealed, but their mystical abilities grant them skills capable of doing almost anything.
Witches seem to be naturally born with the potential for their powers and can pass them down to their offspring. The first stage of witchcraft is “wish craft” among young witches, basically the ability to have anything they desired appear for them.
Tabitha first displayed this in her youth (It's Wish craft) when she wanted her father to be with her, and she accidentally popped him to her room. Witchcraft can also be considered a skill since the more a witch practices the more powerful they become.
For example, Samantha has become so adept she can perform considerable spells by twitching her nose or tugging at her ear. Witches learn how to use their powers at a young age like Tabitha and Adam, often uncontrollably.
A witch or warlock can cast their spells in several ways to show signs of her/him using witchcraft. Witches can also speak incantations that rhyme and cause a supernatural effect.
Samantha, Eudora and Clara once weaved a curse that changed the perceptions of a prejudiced client of Darren wanting to use a stereotypical view of witches. To remove these effects, they refer to witch doctors trained to deal with these illnesses, like Dr. Bombay.
Pooling their powers together, the members of the council can create mystical events beyond which anyone witch could accomplish alone. With so much magic enchanting moviegoers, we thought it would be appropriate to look back at all the witches, wizards, warlocks, and sorcerers that have made their own mark on movie history.
As well as topping our list for the best onscreen interpretation of Dracula, the actor has played an eclectic range of baddies, including the evil wizard Truman in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Since Sauron never appears directly in the book, Peter Jackson decided to give Lee’s Truman more screen time to act as sort of substitute.
Good thing he did, because Lee's evil sorcerer steals almost every scene that he's in; his sinister gaze and icy demeanor only being matched by his magical prowess. A true piece of psychological terror, the film has three friends get lost in the woods where legend has it the Blair Witch preys on unsuspecting victims.
This year's anticipated sequel gave us a little more backstory on the Witch herself, indicating that she even has the power to warp time in the cursed woods that she resides in. Released in 1960, Lava’s film retains positive critical reception for its eerie environment and for, most of all, Barbara Steele’s rendition of ASA Ada.
This former princess has the power of telekinesis, the ability to resurrect dead bodies, as well having an extensive knowledge of the dark arts, so when Ada eventually comes back in the movie to seek her revenge, it is both therapeutic and rather terrifying. Though we give points to The Sword in the Stone’s rendition of Merlin, Nicole Williamson’s take on the character might be the best onscreen interpretation seen yet.
As the legendary sorcerer in the Arthurian legend, Williamson’s Merlin is emotionally complex as the leader and interpreter of all things otherworldly in John Doorman’s 1981 fantasy, Excalibur. His duels with Morgan are an especial standout from the film, as he conjures complex spells, like the ability to duplicate himself, to defeat his opponent.
After moving with her family to Los Angeles to start a new life, sixteen-year old Sarah enrolls in a Catholic high school where she makes friends with a group of social misfits that practice witchcraft. White-haired, decrepit and confined to a wheelchair in the beginning of the movie, to a ten-foot tall behemoth that can shoot lasers out of his eyeballs by the third act, Lo-Pan is a mythical Chinese warlord that means business.
Played by actor James Hong, Lo-Pan (aka David Lo-Pan, CEO of the Wing Kong Import-Export Trading Company) wields an impressive stack of powers, including a blend of martial arts heightened by the fact that he can shoot lightning bolts and laser beams. Ruthless, calculating, and just plain creepy, the White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia movies has definitely left her mark on cinematic sorcerers.
Played perfectly by Tilda Swindon, this cold-as-ice witch gets her colorful name for being the one who froze Narnia in the Hundred Years Winter (and Game of Thrones thought they had it bad). This sorceress is awarded further points for the fact that actress Swindon plays her as more psychopathic and malevolent than her counterpart from the books, invoking a serious mean streak by being overly violent and downright cruel.
The Evil Queen has various abilities which include life and death force manipulation, regeneration, superhuman strength, mind control, invisibility, and the power to shape shift into whatever she desires. On top of all that, Ravenna also has the ability to conjure a vile black substance called dark fay, which can take the form of a soldier or a liquid, which is both deadly and kind of disgusting.
It’s hard to imagine that a witch so cruel, evil, and physically revolting would be front and center in a movie aimed at children. This deviant sorceress is the head of a worldwide covenant of witches that have been hell-bent on killing children (remember, this is a kid's movie), based on the fact that they don't particularly like the way they smell.
The Grand High Witch has the ability to turn children into smaller animals in order for a quicker kill, and can easily burn her enemies into a charcoal crisp using her laser beam eyes. Like other entries on this list, Bavaria from the movie Willow is a sorceress Queen who is made even deadlier thanks to her egotistical power trip.
At a young age, Bavaria married the crown prince of Air Asleep, only to murder her new husband and in-laws to start building her own empire above the ruble she left in her wake. The embodiment of pure evil, Voldemort is absolutely horrifying for his undying practice of the dark arts, and his murderous and psychopathic demeanor.
While we love Angelina Jolie’s more sympathetic take on this character, there’s just no beating the classic version voiced by Eleanor Audrey in Sleeping Beauty. The “Mistress of All Evil,” this fairy turned witch just might be Disney’s darkest animated villain ever, and crazy powerful to boot.
Maleficent has an entire army of ghouls, demons, and monster at her disposal, which is bad news to any knight in shimmering armor that dare oppose her. Though she also has the power to wield lightning, teleport with ease, and perform a number of spells, Maleficent’s the most dangerous trait is being able to transform in a full-fledged dragon, and you tell us that isn't intimidating.
The Harry Potter universe has some of the most powerful witches and wizards ever seen on the silver screen, but the most powerful of them all was Albus Percival Sulfuric Brian Dumbledore. With an unlimited knowledge of spells and potions, as well as one of the greatest beards in movie history, this headmaster of Hogwarts has more than cemented his place in the halls of wizardry legends.
This green sorceress, who isn't known for letting things go, has it out to get a very rare pair of ruby slippers back from Dorothy, who accidentally crash lander her house on the Wicked Witch's sister. The personification of all human wickedness, the Witch of the West commands an entire army of flying monkeys to do her bidding, which is a lot more vicious than it sounds.
Her crystal ball allows her to have an eye on just about anywhere in the vast Land of Oz, and she can even manipulate spells on victims from miles away, not to mention the fact that she can write hate messages in the sky with her broomstick. Not only does he take the award of the best wizard beard (sorry Dumbledore), he's without a doubt one of the most iconic and strongest magical beings to ever grace a movie screen.
While there are other witches and wizards on this list that could give Gandalf a run for his money, having the power of immortality is just too good not to award the number one spot to.
