Rock legend Sting will be writing the foreword for CONSTANTINE, HELLBLAZER: 30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION from the perspective of Golden Boy, Constantine’s twin brother.
The foreword was announced in a video featuring Sting dressed as Constantine himself; the costume is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the fact that the rocker-inspired Constantine’s look. The 30th Anniversary collection will compile some of the best stories starring the famed demonologist as written by Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Garth Ennis, Brian Azzarello, Paul Jenkins, Jamie Delano, and more.
Constantine has seen a recent revival in mainstream popularity thanks to his 2014 NBC series. Despite canceled due to poor ratings, actor Matt Ryan’s portrayal of the character received much acclaim from viewers and therefore he was officially inducted into the Arrowverse after an appearance in Arrow before joining the cast of Legends of Tomorrow. Ryan also voices the character in an animated web series for CW Seed titled Constantine: City of Demons. Previously, Warner Bros had released a film loosely based on the character starring Keanu Reeves. The film received a lukewarm reaction, and hardcore fans of the character derided the adaptation for departing so heavily from the source material.

9 Times Joker Fought The Justice League And Won
The Joker is more than just a thorn in Batman’s side. The Clown Prince of Crime has taken on various members of the Justice League and lived to laugh another day. His dastardly plots are dangerous for everyone, and sometime he wants to take on an opponent who doesn’t know him as well as Batman does. Out of the entire superhero community, Batman clearly knows Joker best, so it makes sense that sometimes he wants to stretch his creative muscles and try and take down other heroes.
The character may physically just be a human being, but he still poses a threat to god-like figures like Superman and Wonder Woman. He may hurt his hand if he directly punches the last son of Krypton, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hurt him just as easily as he can anyone else. No matter how confusing he may be, Joker’s an intelligent, ruthless villain who happily picks on anybody he wants.
