A perfect anti-hero if we can call him. Most of us know this character based on the Film of the same name where Keanu Reeves was the lead, few might know him through the Constantine TV Series. The TV Series depicted the character right out of the Comics. Created by the legendary Alan Moore (The man who created V for Vendetta, Watchmen Series, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen to name a few), John Constantine is a working-class magician, demon tricking con artist and an occult detective.
He is a foul-mouthed, cynical and a Chain smoking grey character. A True Anti-hero if you want to call him. John Constantine is part of a team called “Justice League Dark” which deals with Mystical and supernatural threats. Most of this team members are underrated due to their lesser appearance in the Mainstream comics. John Constantine is highly underrated even though he has magical powers and Con artists who manipulate the devil himself.
