Encircled by a wreath of cigarette smoke, sorcery and shame, John Constantine wields the dark arts to save his soul, as well as the earth itself.
If you're dealing with trouble that skews a bit supernatural, you'd better get yourself to the expert. John Constantine isn't known for his glowing personality, but when it comes to the occult, he's the best investigator there is. Like anything in life, however, Constantine's skill set comes with a price.
A notorious con man and grifter whose past has a body count, Constantine's moral compass is as gray as can be. He's an expert sorcerer and magician, but also an accomplished liar and thief known for his vices, self-loathing and on-again-off-again death wish. His abilities have afforded him the opportunity not only to cheat death, but to trick the forces that govern Heaven and Hell...meaning he has no shortage of powerful enemies.
Still, although John's motives may be suspect more often than not, with enough effort, his selfishness can be chipped away, revealing a decent person buried beneath a carefully crafted persona. A lifetime of pain and suffering has hardened the Hellblazer on the outside, but deep down, he wants to do the right thing.
