Constantine is a seasoned magic user and member of the Justice League. In a battle against a warlock, Constantine was hit with an accent-exaggerator spell that left him with a thick English accent. The next week, he responded to Batman's distress call. He summoned Plastic Man, Green Arrow, and Swamp Thing then opened a portal to bring Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman to his base of operations, the House of Mystery. Arrow came up with a plan for everyone to change costumes and looks with each other in order to render Nyorlath's super power nullifying spell useless. Once the Brothers were taken care of, Constantine knocked their heads together. He opened a portal that the League used to banish the Brothers and Black Adam but due to his accent, the others had no idea where they were sent. On the night of a Crimson Moon, Constantine and Zatanna battled Brother Night and his ghouls. They were contacted by Batman who wanted back up against Solomon Grundy.

Constantine informed him the Star of the Dead could raise a zombie army and it couldn't be allowed to be taken to the City of the Dead cemetery. Some time later in the battle, Zatanna left to help Batman and Swamp Thing while Constantine stayed behind to finish off Brother Night. In a Halloween tale that may or may not have happened, Constantine went with Batman, Dr. Fate, and Zatanna to check on the House of Mystery after it appeared in a new neighborhood but they were turned into amnesiac 10 year olds by Klarion. They were tricked into entering the House where Klarion tried to steal the Helmet of Fate. Constantine used some red hot cinnamon balls from trick or treating and enchanted them to super heat the Helmet. Constantine and Fate made a play for the Helmet. Fate got the House to release them and it vanished, with Klarion and Teekl trapped inside. They returned to adults. Constantine found the key to the House among the grass and added it to his key ring.

Batman brought Constantine with him to Mr. Anderson's home after Stargirl informed him of Klarion's presence. Stargirl mistook him for a hobo. He went to work trying to break through Klarion's magic barrier. Klarion presented the Magdalene Grimoire. Constantine recognized it and reckoned he could do a lot with it. He declared he was taking it then threw a glyph onto the barrier. He inserted a key into it but both melted away. Klarion was amused and flooded the other side of the study. He tried another spell but simply opened a portal to an establishment with three demon women. Constantine was taken with them but was annoyed when Klarion closed the portal. He shot several marbles into the barrier but they bounced out. Klarion laughed at his expense. Constantine declared he knew how to break through. He found a sofa and pushed it into the barrier to no avail. He had enough after Klarion shoved Timmy, a little boy who lived at the house, to the floor. Constantine produced a scroll and cast a spell in Japanese.

A samurai spirit emerged from the scroll and charged the barrier. A kanji character appeared and the barrier dropped. Klarion opened another portal and a beast grabbed Batman. He tried slicing its tentacle but more shot through the portal and grabbed him and Constantine. Stargirl eventually gained the grimoire and floated it to Constantine but he needed both hands free. Batman threw several Bat Bombs into the beast's mouth. It released them both. Klarion blasted Batman then demanded the grimoire back. Constantine complied then punched him across the study. The beast grabbed Klarion next. Constantine read from the grimoire and closed the portal. Teekl was unable to free Klarion and they were both pulled through the portal as it sealed. Constantine then cast another spell to clean up the study and return it to the way it was before the battle. He declined Batman's offer for a ride, instead opting for a stroll. He got out the Magdalene and opened the portal to the demon women then entered it. Constantine attended Green Arrow's Christmas party on Christmas Eve.
