DC Animated Movie Universe Wiki

Nergal was a Demon from hell and adversary of John Constantine.


He first crossed paths with Constantine after being summoned by the young magician with the intent to have him kill his mentor Alex Logue. Which Nergal did, but Constantine could not control the demon, who then slaughtered everyone in the building besides Constantine and Chas Chandler. Nergal then dragged the innocent Astra Logue to hell.

Nergal later resurfaced in Los Angeles where he planned to create hell franchises. He enlisted the help of Constantine to kill rival demons with similar ambitions by holding the soul of Chas's daughter hostage.

Constantine managed to defeat Nergal by casting a spell known as the candever curse.
