John Constantine

Voiced By: Greg Ellis

Classification: Gadget Character (Without explosives)

Biography: John Constantine is a working-class magician, occult detective, and con man stationed from London. Known for his endless cynicism, deadpan snarking, ruthless cunning, and constant chain smoking. Constantine is also a passionate humanist driven by a heartfelt desire to do some good in his life.

Intro: Constantine is shown lighting up a cigarette with his lighter before looking at the opponent, saying "Name's John Constantine. I'm not the nicest bloke you've met." before being ready to fight.

Post-Round Taunt: Discards his old cigarette before lighting up another while stepping a bit back, saying "Can't do it, can you?" or "Forgot to give 'em the finger."

Outro: Constantine shakes his head, knelling down next to the opponent saying "I walk my path alone...", taking their wallet, of all things, leaving them his old cigarette stub, then walks away, finishing with "Who would walk with me?"

Special Moves:
Light 'em Up: Constantine creates a ball of hellfire from his cigarette and fires it at the opponent. (Meter Burn: Makes a bigger ball ofhellfire due to using his lighter, doing more damage.)
Fooled You: Constantine creates a illusion of himself behind the opponent which punches the opponent to the ground. (Meter Burn: The illusion punches the opponent hard enough to daze them, open for a free hit or combo.)
Here I Am: Constantine uses a teleportation spell to either move backwards or towards the opponent.
Magic Circle: Constantine creates a quick magic circle that can block any projectile attack. (Meter Burn: Repels the projectile back the opponent, hurting them.)
Lucky You Missed: Constantine does a quick handwave, if he is hit with a high or medium attack, his Synchronicity Wave Travelling magic kicks in, making the opponent miss him, resulting in him stabbing the opponent with his twin blade before kicking the opponent in their ass.

Forward: Uses Oclumancy to mind-control the opponent into punching themselves before doing a teleportation spell them into the air, falling on the ground.
Back: Uses Oclumancy to mind-control the opponent into punching themselves before doing a teleportation spell them into the air, falling on the ground behind him.

Character Trait:
Little Backup: Constantine can summon up a demon to help him out. He can make it slash the opponent two times, or if you want a free hit or combo, either throw the opponent in the air or grab his opponent and make it feast on the opponents neck.

Super Move:
Dangerous Habit: Constantine summons a quick burst of hellfire that blinds the opponent a bit, enough time to curse the opponent with black magic as they scream, various demons scream and attacking them, even know we see that there are really no demons, just the opponent losing their mind for a while as Constantine simply smirks before the opponent falls in pain.

Ending: The defeat of Superman normally would shock a normal man, but not John Constantine, still the roguish magical con man he is known to be in the other universe, using various tricks and magic to defeat the High Councilor. As the world rebuilt itself, John went to resume his life, when the magician Zatanna offered him to join a side division of a new Justice League, one focused on magic. He accepted, on one condition...

and if they did, it would be better if it was the comic version, than the Keanu version.

Here's one Rayne from the Bloodrayne games. Also I've just thought of a Clash quote, 

Rayne: "You remind me of Kommando?" 
Deathstroke:  "Appearance is where the similarity's end." 

Deathstroke: "Nice blade work."
Rayne: "You've seen nothing yet."

Nice, like 'em, but i don't think i'll do her (... Kinda never really played those games. XD )
avenger09 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You could always look them up on youtube. 
jc013 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013
True. Though, might just stick with DC Comic characters and maybe the right guest (Like say someone from MK.)
OmegaMorph Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
Some great lines here. Would be awesome to see the original Brit version to show up in anything, although I do admit the Keanu version is sort of a guilty pleasure for me. Still, I need to read a bit more of the original Alan Moore stuff.
jc013 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
Course, it'd be awesome.

I thought with what Keanu had to work with, he did fine, not great, but passable.

Yeah, read Moore's stuff, Delano and Ennis' work too are great.

I love the clash quotes you came up with!
jc013 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
Thanks, tried mostly to stick him with magic or supernatural opponents, mostly Raven, Zatanna, Grundy and Ares.
hydranoid2009 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist

jc013 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
