* AlternateContinuity: The John Constantine who's now showing up in the DCU in ''Justice League Dark'' is apparently the young thirty-something who first helped Swamp Thing come to terms with his identity, rather than the one in Vertigo's ''Hellblazer'' who's possibly pushing 60.

* AlternateContinuity: The John Constantine who's now showing up in the DCU in ''Justice League Dark'' is apparently the young thirty-something who first helped Swamp Thing come to terms with his identity, rather than the one in Vertigo's ''Hellblazer'' who's possibly pushing 60. The New52 book continuity also has a number of differences with the classic. In the traditonal Hellblazer, John cast roughly less than one spell per book, and those were typically low-level scrying or hypnotism. He used wits and deals instead of wands. New52 Constantine has some of the same characteristics, but while he still doesn't blast toe to toe in wizard duels, there are a lot more glowing lines and magic tricks spurting around.

Redundant "the".
* ImperfectRitual: ''Hellblazer'' 108 - "Day of Wine and Roses": John is hired to do some fertility magic to spice up an orgy. He fully intends to con his employer the by doing a bogus ritual with the added bonus of gaining {{blackmail}} material on the rich participants. His secret "[[MagicalIncantation magical chant]]" is the list of ingredients off a packet of muesli. The ritual still manages to summon spirits called the Mendw that possess the participants and wreck havoc.

** One of GarthEnnis' stories features an unnamed member of the British royal family as a member of a particularly depraved club for the rich and bored, who is possessed by a demon as part of a plot to split the world into the leaders and the led. The guy behind it all even spells it out in case we didn't get it: The role of the royal family is to feed on the blood of its people. Why yes, Garth Ennis ''is'' Irish, why do you ask?

''Hellblazer'' was notable for averting ComicBookTime, with John steadily growing older along with the rest of us. An ancestress of his, [[DistaffCounterpart Johanna Constantine]], appeared in some issues of ComicBook/TheSandman and was [[BadassFamily fairly badass]].

** Also features said member's equally-deviant brother who wouldn't mind the possessed guy being killed, as this would put him one spot closer to the throne. And the demon in question is the one who'd possessed QueenVictoria's doctor as JackTheRipper.

clarification of language
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers: Many magic users or persons with access to magic in the comic has this to some degree particularly the First of the Fallen and John Constantine. Human magicians use their magic to break human laws to varying degree with Terry Greaves and Joshua Wright as stand out examples. Demons cannot break certain magical rules, but twist twist them to the best of their ability and when they can break them do. By Hell's laws, The First of the Fallen was supposed to suffer the torments intended for Constantine in Hell after Constantine bested him three times. Thanks to be the strongest demon, the First ripped to pieces the demons who tried to enforce the law.
