DC Animated Movie Universe Wiki

Destiny was an evil sorcerer, who was an enemy of Merlin and Jason Blood. Following his release and possession of Ritchie Simpson, he became an enemy of the Justice League Dark.


This version is an evil sorcerer and former opponent of Merlin's and Etrigan the Demon. Destiny was said to have been a former man of science by Merlin in Arthurian times before turning insane after wielding the power of his personal artifact, the Dreamstone. With it, he brought many towns to their knees by making them live their worst nightmares, but a group of knights led by Jason Blood attempted to defeat him. All of them were mortally wounded, forcing Merlin to unleash the power of Etrigan, which forced Destiny's soul into the Dreamstone.

It was revealed that John Constantine's old friend Ritchie Simpson made a deal with Destiny that would give him immortality to cure him of his disease. However, Destiny exploited a loophole in their deal by possessing him and wreaking havoc in a nearby city. While he was able to defeat Swamp Thing and Etrigan, Destiny was ultimately defeated by Constantine and Deadman. He was finally killed by Jason Blood, who used Etrigan's sword to stab him through the back and through the Dreamstone in his chest, destroying it. He is then sent to hell by Constantine along with his puppet Ritchie.
