When John Constantine Became A Superhero (Justice League Dark and Constantine Spoilers)


So, John Constantine is in Justice League Dark. Currently part of the Trinity War, a big superhero crossover. It feels a bit weird. There’s only one way to go with it, embrace it fully.

…quite literally. So what’s all this about Shazam and his family?
