Well, WOULDN'T he say that?

A Bastard By Any Other Name

This page is for other characters who are based on Constantine, usually from other publishers, or John Constantines who are from parallel dimensions.  Often, the character has a name other than "John Constantine" but not always.  

Ambrose Bierce: Phil Foglio was denied permission to use either Kipling or John Constantine in Stanley and his Monster. Ambrose Bierce is constantly mistaken for Constantine, and acts very much like him, in a Foglio way. Excellent reading.

American Constantine: Keanu Reeves played a dark-haired, American John Constantine in the mediocre Constantine occult action-adventure film, as well as the video game based on the film, and comic adaption of the film.  And before you ask, I am not going to be listing all the Constantine lunch boxes, bottle openers, underoos, and action figures that the film spawns.

Constance Johanssen: In ‘96, Hellblazer writer Warren Ellis wrote an interesting Pryde & Wisdom mini-series for Marvel. In it Kitty Pryde and Pete Wisdom are introduced to Britain’s spook squad, including a blonde, trenchcoated, chain-smoking woman. “Constance Johanssen. Excellent occult detective. Has a habit of getting her friends killed. Two hundred at last count.” She's John’s first first female simulacra. Thanks to Amanda K for the tip.

Constantine Rat:  In Neopolis, everyone has a super-power, including the rats!  In a large picture in which many of the rarts parody DC heroes, we spy a trenchcoated figure with a cigarette...   
Top 10 #8 Alan Moore Gene Ha and Zander Cannon Tiny, but funny.  2 flames
Hellblazer!:  Born in a slightly different universe, John Constantine could have become the (enormously packaged) Kirby-esque superhero Hellblazer!

Books of Magic Annual #3 Mark Millar Phil Jimenez 6/1999 Brilliantly funny--3 Flames
Hellboozer: While in the Boarding House of Mystery, Howard the Duck encounters many parodies of Vertigo characters, including one Hellboozer.  Ha ha, he he, ho ho, very funny.  Or not.

Futures End John Constantine: In the Future's End series, taking place some five years after 2014 (so 2019) Constantine and various superheroes create an alternate future because of time travel from thirty-five years in the future.

Injustice John Constantine: In the separate universe of Injustice, Superman has imposed martial law on the world, and in this dystopia that more thasn slightly resembles Twilight of the Superheroes, John Constantine appears in season three with a plan to take down the Super High Councillor.
Injustice, Year Three, #1 Tom Taylor Bruno Redondo 12/2014  A solid, manipulative Constantine--3 Flames

Jack Carter: After Warren Ellis left Hellblazer, it seemed that he wasn't quite done with John Constantine.  Jack Carter is exactly what Ellis told us John Constantine was: A personification of London. With the exception of his dark hair, Jack looks, acts, and poses like John Constantine. A box of Silk Cut to to Fortean for tipping me off to this.
Planetary #7 Warren Ellis John Cassaday 1/2000  A wonderful Constantine story--3 Flames
Jacqueline Constantine: A paralell universe Constantine; she is about sixteen, employed by Tim Hunter in an attempt to outsmart Lord Constantine.

John Clandestine: Appearing in a somewhat amusing parody by Eclipse comics, the Vertigo characters head out looking for real money.   John Clandestine goes to Hollywood to get into big-budget pictures.  A few funny moments. 
Blandman Fred Schiller Fred Schiller 7/1992 Moderately funny, but not astounding-2 Flames
"Johnny": Shows up in Evil Ernie Versus the Superheroes 2, in which Ernie kills a bunch of parodies of various superheroes.  The writer must have a soft spot for Constantine; Ernie doesn't directly kill him, and he survives four entire pages after meeting Ernie.
Evil Ernie -vs- The Superheroes 2 Hart Fisher Steven Butler 9/1998 Pretty good, considering the writing-2 Flames
Lord Constantine: Set in a different otherworld from Hellblazer #40, John Constantine seems to be the leader of a group of the 'bred' who have taken refuge in some remnant of Krakow against the siege of the demonic 'born.'  Lord Constantine is a particularly nasty piece of work in increasingly desperate circumstances.

Marky D. Sadd: All-too-brief appearance from Eddie Campbell, who would later write four interesting issues of Hellblazer.  Marky is a self-proclaimed bastard, and when a bartender mentions a possible resemblance to Sting, Marky denies it.  "An' 'ooever sez so's gonna get 'is face cut orf."
Eddie Campbells' Baccus, book 9 Eddie Campbell Eddie Campbell 1995 All too brief, but lots of potential-2 Flames
Mite Constantine: The Mite-world is being taken over by a new super-insane supermite villain Bane-mite, bla bla bla, and this gives Alan Grant an excuse to have every DC character show up as Mite versions of themselves.  Unexpectedly funny.   
Batman: MiteFall Alan Grant Kevin O’Neill 1995 Short but memorably pungent--2 Flames
Rasputin: John Ostrander wanted to use Constantine in a Firestorm as elemental storyline, but was denied permission. A similar character, named Rasputin, helped guide Firestorm, and later Captain Atom in developing their ‘elemental’ powers. Rasputin is likely the furthest removed of any of Constantine’s clones, and is not of any real interest to the John Constantine fan. Rasputin has only appeared in Firestorm and in Captain Atom. Thanks to Parallax for the list of Rasputin appearances.

Sting: Many people have commented on John Constantine's resemblance to pop star Sting, and this page was created to clear up any questions people have.  Sting appears in Real Life, and you can pick up his latest appearances at your local CD and video store, or at Ticketmaster.
An Uncanny Weirdo: A Beck and Kawl strip in which the League of Uncanny Wierdos, including a chainsmoking, trenchcoated Brit, team up against the Tooth Fairy.  Special thanks to Anthony Holmes for bringing this to my attention.

Willoughby Kipling: Grant Morrison wanted to use Constantine in Doom Patrol, but couldn't get permission, so he produced the clone Willoughby Kipling. Kipling has only appeared in Doom Patrol, and was fairly faithful to the character of Constantine, althought slightly wierder.  Kipling was part of the Knights Templar, a sort of parallel with Constantine’s apocryphal involvement with the mysterious Lodge as revealed in Swamp Thing #166–171. Kipling’s appearances are unfortunately brief, usually involving only two or three pages of the magazine. Thanks to John E. Milller for the list of Kipling appearances.

Z's Boyfriend:  A satire cover from Comics Alliance's “Great Comics That Never Happened” series. I think Zatanna's outfit clearly indicates which she's going choose.
Great Comics that Never Happened #8 Chris Sims Rusty Shackles Just a cover, but damned funny anyway.  2 flames
