John Constantine, like others within the supernatural territory, will often face threats on that same supernatural level. Those creatures or beings must be ended, so Constantine’s actions against those types are often just. The “Hellblazer” is considered an occult detective and working-class warlock, but also often a con man. His cons do tend to be done for a purpose. For example, he frequently has run-ins with supernatural beings that he willingly claims he’ll sell his soul to for either assistance or as a wager for something. Yet he does this with several beings, so it will cause huge problems upon his death. Something John finds hilarious.
Constantine has an endlessly cynical attitude, is as smart-aleck as they come, and chain-smokes more than a 1920’s English chimney. Yet for all of his faults, he is driven by a truly heartfelt desire to do at least a little good with his life. If that means removing supernatural threats from the mortal plane, he happily does it. Of course, Constantine is known quite well among other supernatural characters in DC. Most tend to hate his guts, likely over being cheated by him or simply for his attitude overall. That includes Swamp Thing among many others. In spite of this, John is certainly one of the best comic book antiheroes ever created.
