Well, just great!

No, not the presentation.

That's terrible.

Some idiot just hit me.

Ugh. Do you realize how much

this is going to cost?

Not in money, which

I have plenty of, but in...

What the...

Get away from me! Get away!

Help me. Someone help!

Stay away!

Ah! What are you doing?

- Look out!

- Help me!

Wonder woman! Save me!

Save me from them!

From whom?

Demons. They're everywhere.

Don't you see them?

I see only one.

I'll ask you one last time.

What did you do with my family?

Steven, it's me, Gloria!

I'm your wife.

These are our children.

You're not my family!

You killed them,

just like the others.

Now it's your turn.

No one's dying here tonight.

It's not me

you should be stopping.

It's them. Look at them!

Look at them!

It's just like the neighbors.

Go to my shed.

You'll see I'm right!

What have you done?

Let me help you.

It's not my fault.

I've given birth to the devil.

It's the devil!

You're tired.

Give me the baby.

You don't want to hurt her.

I'm sorry.

These crimes were committed

by law-abiding citizens.

They all claim to have seen

nightmare visions beforehand.

Any clue what's causing it?

No idea.

The one week

I fill in for Jordan,

and it couldn't be

some hairy-ass monster?

The same pattern is repeating

around the world,

so there could be

an overriding factor.

Perhaps a paranormal element.

Are you talking about magic?

We've come up against

magic before, Batman.

Xerxes, Trigon, Felix Faust.

Even Shazam's powers

are based in magic.

With as much as you've seen,

can you rule it out?

The criminally insane

don't need magic as an excuse.

I recommend spending

more time on the streets

instead of flying over them.

Hmm. He's even friendlier

than they say.

Bollocks! In what bloody plane of

existence does four of a kind lose?

Too, too bad, Constantine.

Have you gained weight?

It looks good on you.

What say you let your soul

mate play a few hands, Jason?

Maybe he'd change my luck.

He'd definitely be

less mopey than you.

John Constantine, the man

who perfected the bad idea.

The only reason I came to this dung

heap of a casino is to find a relic

to keep that monster

locked away forever.

Boys, boys! You're boring me.

Let's play, shall we?

My luck's running

as hot as me naughty bits.

Oh, but our next group

of friends is due to arrive,

so it's time to bust you out.

Copperfield's coming.

Presto Changeo!

Woman in a box. In a box.

Yeah, he's classy, unlike you.

Are they implying David Copperfield,

television magician, has true power?

Owns a chain of islands and dated

Claudia Schiffer. What do you think?

No cards for me, and...

Oh, looks like you can't call

my bet, Constantine.

By my rules, you lose.

I raise.

With what? Your ratty soul

ain't worth two bits.

Not two bits.

I'm betting the house,

the house of mystery.

And since I'm including

everything inside,

it looks like you're the one

that can't call, Abnegazar.

Well, what do you say, boys?

I like the action.

I call.

Really? A chipped dreamstone?

I'm out.

Broken knick-knacks for the house

of mystery and its contents?

Are you mad?

I've got a working soul catcher.

That's Ogid's eye spiker, eh?

And the Garazi.

So even if that very magical dreamstone

doesn't work, it's still a big-ass Ruby.

I'd be a poor sport indeed if I

didn't accept your fair wager.

Hell. Now, that's

a losing hand for the ages.

Now, read them and...


Do they have

an eye doctor in hell?

I'd make an appointment

if I was you.

You cheated!

Technically, we both cheated.

I just did it better.

I'll rip your bloody heart out!

Sorry, mate, I'm using that.

Situation here, Jason. It's

time to call your better half.

Sorry, John, you're on your own.

Oi, I'm gonna roast your nuts and

feed them to you, Constantine.

Gone, gone, the form of man.

Arise the demon, Etrigan!

Once more with words

of metered rhyme

comes Etrigan the slayer

just in time.

Easy now, brother.

We're on the same side, right?

Let's use our words.

Are you having a laugh?

We're the demons three.

Kill everyone!

You will pay, Constantine.

Your soul will be ours.

Get in line, you prats.

Your ass is grass, Constantine.

And we're the lawnmower.

Since the battle's

fought and won,

Jason blood with me is done.

For 500 years,

I've been bound to Etrigan,

fighting to keep him

from coming forth,

and you forced me to summon him.

Everything got sorted.

He could have gone

on a killing spree.

You don't think.

You don't consider the cost.

Yeah, I did.

Weighed it against my being eaten alive

and thought, "yeah, totally worth it."

You're a world class

bastard, John.

And for my finale,

I will make this terrible trio of

terrifying Tantors vanish before your eyes.

I hope those elephants survived.

You don't want

Peta on your back.

You're assuming they were

real in the first place.

How are you, Bruce?

I'm fine, Zatanna. Busy.

You know where I can find

John Constantine?


You must have some idea.

We don't keep in touch.

I know

you two have history, so I...

Z, Batman needs

to talk with John.

You've got to come along, too.

It's important.

Is that you, Boston?


Everything is...

Boy, this guy's mind is tough.

Can't hold...

What is going on?

I'll tell you

on the way to John's.

Okay, but I call shotgun.

I don't even think his kid

could fit back here.
