    Two of them are dead and one is powerless.

    Not a high bar.

    And if they see what a relationship with him is like then they'll forever be repulsed by anything even remotely male.

    If there's a mandatory psych hold until John's been given a clean bill of health by three separate magic specialists, he may be sidelined for a while...

    Just a random scepter.
    Spontaneous scepter fixation is a symptom that occurs occasionally when going full on comic book Evil.
    Just look at Xur in The Last Starfighter, or Maximillian Zeus.

    And how many of the brownies did you absolutely have to kill to complete the mission, I wonder?
    And how many were just mind controlled victims you could have taken out non-lethally, if you actually cared enough to put in your best efforts towards that end like Batman, Superman, and most everyone else in the Justice League would have?

    Is this the beginning of his falling out with Batman?
    He kills more people getting to the Baddie than the Baddie himself had killed?
    With all of those dead people being innocents...

    Effectively Quinn removed OL's spirit from the physical universe so he technically died on this mission. Didn't stick but he did.

    If John sorts out being a lord of Balance and finishes the retreat, do you think he'll be asked to join the justice league so that they can keep a goddamn eye on him?

    Leaving Constantine on Amazon island is a horrible idea...

    Because there's no way he and Eris don't hook up.

    More than a while.

    I've read about this.

    Psychologists believe that the scepter comes into play because the subject has issues with their genitalia and their sexual adequacy and thus they use a phallic-like instrument to overcompensate for their impotency.

    So did Dr Mist move the tower to somewhere in Africa? Or perhaps a part of the UK that Constantine has been banned from?

    I hope whoever is Eris’ orderly counterpart doesn’t start snacking on those Order crystals. Nothing good will come from a goddess collapsing into meat cubes.

    Aww, it's always nice to see Paul care so much about friends.

    ..it occurs. Since part of John was a League member... does that make Constantine technically still a Leaguer?

    I doubt it they initially only accepted Quinn to keep up appearances that Doctor Fate was still on the JL. At this point, they might publicly say Doctor Fate died so they don't have to deal with this nonsense anymore.

    The most important question here is who is going to be the renegade lone wolf that doesn't play by the rules and who is going to be the by-the-book cop?

    I know you'd say that Paul would be the second one, but let's face it, he has broken a lot of rules.

    She's probably too busy.

    Well unless John fills that role.

    The last thing any universe needs is a Harley Quinn who's obsessively in love with John Constantine instead of the Joker.

    Because you just know that Eris would cackle at the possibilities as she surreptitiously gifts Dr. Quinzelle with enough magical potential to actually learn from John...

    I remember after Paragon woke up from being fragged by his overloaded spell eater, and overloaded tattoos, he told the public that Nabu died helping him kill a lich.

    Essentially before leaving for space he came up with a plausible cover story as to why Nabu/Fate is gone and Giovanni Zatara is back, when the League lied about how the former was using the latter as meat puppet and weren't really planning on separating the two save for Batman, and it didn't help they sort of bungled how to help/handle Zatanna who thought they wouldn't accept Nabu into the League so easily or give him her dad's spot/vote.

    Since Nabu is dependent on his helmet to remain connected or act in the mortal world he could be considered a lich by definition of being an undead being who's soul in contain within a phylactory/object. Especially in England where such magics or actions could be considered unlawful and gives Paul leeway in trapping and killing Nabu in order to release Zatara.

    Plus given the fact that no one decided to tell the public the truth it was a lie the League were willing to go with, though Guy did mention it nearly tore the group apart. Zoat has also mentioned how more than half the League has little idea of the situation such as the newer members, other like Wonder Woman thought that with time they could petition Nabu to give Giovanni his freedom, while some like Black Canary who have little to no knowledge/experience with magic decided there was nothing they could do and leave things as is.

    cool, nice to have that human beacon of existential discord there on the island where he's easily accessible to Eris; and it just so happens to be on the one island on Earth where she's most powerful. the best swerve would be John and Eris settling peacefully down together to intermingle with the Amazonians and restart the race.

    Technically, wouldn't achieving true harmony between Order and Chaos, internally transmuting them into a singular whole, make Constantine a "Lord of Balance", or just a "Balancer"?

    Of all the times that those two lovebird Rebel-Lords T'Charr and Terataya are needed to give advice....
