A bit of abstract thinking (I know some of you find that difficult) required here.
Something along these lines has been done here before, but this was inspired the tendency of certain visitors to this forum (and wikipedia) to define Constantine by what he is not.

Your replies should be six unconnected words, not a sentence, but a list.

The six nouns that best describe John Constantine.
(One of these should be something that you do not like about him.)

The six words that best sum up the antithesis of your beliefs about John Constantine's behaviour.

The six adjectives that you would least expect to see applied to John Constantine.

Try not to overthink your answers.

Try to avoid reading ahead, let's have your own views first and foremost.
And for now, leave out any discussion of these terms.
(More of that later.)

"But that's the whole point, it's supernatural, these things happen.
It's not supposed to be realistic in that sense."

"I think I could turn and live with animals. They are so placid and self-contained. They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins. They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God. Not one of them kneels to another or to his own kind that lived thousands of years ago. Not one of them is respectable or unhappy, all over the earth."

"No I'll tell you what's gonna happen, she can take half your shit man. She can take half your car, half the trailer park, half your video game, she can even take half your cigarettes Ricky."
