Hellblazer Q&A

Recommended Posts

Well, it would seem that the Beast was also...but John was able to beat the Beast.

Lucifer usually has to get a ego victory, instead of just out and out destroying someone. Since John embarrassed the First and so many demons of Hell, I'm sure Lucifer would have to get a "Moral Victory" over John by outsmarting him, which would give John more of a fighting chance.

But, I do agree that Lucifer is out of John's league!

Someone asked Mike what would happen if Lucifer and John went against one another in an interview once. I don't recall what he said, but I remember laughing about it.

 

Anyone remember it?

Paraphrasing:

 

Q: Who'd wn in a fight between Lucifer and John Constantine.

 

A: Lucifer, but as he walks away he realises that his wallet's missing.

The Beast made the mistake of underestimating John. I can't see Lucifer doing the same.

Constantine versus Lucifer? Well, I don't seem that at cross-purposes that much. John would never be so stupid as to cross something THAT powerful without a very big gun himself, and what plan of John's could really cause Lucifer much more than an inconvenience? If they did come to loggerheads, I really think they'd figure out that they were being manipulated, and decide to go after their mutial antagonist together.

I don't think Mike Carey would ever do a big Marvelesque "Constantine vs. Lucifer" event but a simple little meeting might be kind of cool if it's done right. Perhaps Lucifer could give John some information about Rosecarins he could use. I don't read "Lucifer" so I don't know if the Morningstar can still come and go from Hell as he pleases or what exactly his powers are.

Lucifer wouldn't help John unless it served his own purpose or he owed Constantine for some reason.

Constantine and Lucifer vs. Mike Carey? Grant Morrison would probably have sharp words.

Lucifer cameoed with Mazikeen in "Staring at the Wall"

 

So he did. I noticed it at the time, too - what can I say? Oh well, I'm an idiot.

Lucifer could destroy john with a thought. But lets say Lucifer was bored an in Mortal Form. He would be able to outwit John no matter HOW hard John tried to figure something out. Lucifer would be 1000 jillion steps ahead of John and would prolly end up being bored of Johns antics.

 

I couldnt really see how john could Help out Lucifer in anyway shape or form. Sense Lucifer mostly uses his Godly abilities anc Genius to outsmart gods and demons.

 

John would lose the Fight. But would have enough cunning to atleast grab Lucifers wallet.. And the most that would happen is Lucifer would be smidge suprised at it. But other that. He wouldnt really give a shite.

 

I still need to get the rest of Lucifers trades.

umm...guys, I really don't believe that Carey has ever settled the issue of if Lucifer carries a wallet or not, in continuity!

Nah! I'm just kidding! :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

Aye, well, that's the moment I stop reading comics forever!

"In This Issue:John Constantine vs. Lucifer! TO THE DEATH"

Next issue, "John Constantine and Lucifer team up to battle the ULTIMATE EVIL!" (even if the ULTIMATE EVIL is revealed to be Mike Carey as the butler!)

Finally, Lucifer and Hellblazer are cancelled to create one book written by Jeph Loeb titled "Lucifer & John Constantine:SUPER FRIENDS!"

Well, the only crossover that would work for me is a form of cooperative venture for them. Lucifer has been known to use paw... associates less powerful than himself on many occasions. And I could definitely see John approaching Lucifer with a tit-for-tat proposition.

 

A fight would just be silly. John has nothing Lucifer wants, and in many ways vice versa. If anything, they share agendas, both of them hating the hell/heaven dichotomy.

Man! People on this site really seem to like my crappy comic book ideas that I never want to see happen. BUT....Maybe I should BE writing them if they're so popular! After all, "I never want to see them" only applies when money is NOT involved!

 

Be on the look out for my two new comic series sometime in late-2005:

"Mr. T & The Crack Babies Meet The Rolling Stones" & "John Constantine & Lucifer:Super Friends!"

What are the original lyrics to "Lord of the Dance?" (per issue, um, 49ish) Or was Ennis just making up the backstory about a (presumably) non-Christian origin for the song? As far as I can determine, it's always been a Christian piece.

I have the answers you seek from the internet!

 

"Lord of the Dance was composed in 1963 - many people believe it's old because it's a hymn they sang at school.

No, Mr Flatley it's not Celtic!

Sydney was born on 6th May 1915 and died on 13th March 2004.

The tune is an adaptation of the Shaker tune 'Simple Gifts', but is accepted and acknowledged as a separate copyright in its own right

It's not 'Traditional' - it is fully copyright throughout the world

The so called 'Pagan version' is simply a rip-off and parody of the song and has obviously never been authorised

In recent statistics from CCLI, Lord of the Dance was found to be currently the fifth most sung copyright song in school assemblies in the UK. (Sydney's 'One More Step' came first and 'When I needed a Neighbour' was the seventh most performed

Sydney described it as a carol - 'a dancing kind of song, the life of which is in the dance as much as in the verbal statement'

Sheet music is available in various arrangements"

 

So, apparently, the Pagan version is a NEWER version and the song isn't all that old; although I have no idea what the Pagan version's lyrics may be!

You inow, Constantine should someday tangle with the Shakers. They're some really wacked-out people.

She danced on the water, and the wind was Her horn

The Lady laughed, and everything was born

And when She lit the sun and its' light gave Him birth

The Lord of the Dance first appeared on the Earth

 

(Chorus): Dance, dance, where ever you may be

I am the Lord of the Dance, you see!

I live in you, and you live in Me

And I lead you all in the Dance, said He!

 

I danced in the morning when the World was begun

I danced in the Moon and the Stars and the Sun

I was called from the Darkness by the Song of the Earth

I joined in the Song, and She gave Me the Birth!

 

I dance in the Circle when the flames leap up high

I dance in the Fire, and I never, ever, die

I dance in the waves of the bright summer sea

For I am the Lord of the wave's mystery

 

I sleep in the kernel, and I dance in the rain

I dance in the wind, and thru the waving grain

And when you cut me down, I care nothing for the pain;

In the Spring I'm the Lord of the Dance once again!

 

I dance at the Sabbat when you dance out the Spell

I dance and sing that everyone be well

And when the dancing's over do not think that I am gone

To live is to Dance! So I dance on, and on!

 

I see the Maidens laughing as they dance in the Sun

And I count the fruits of the Harvest, one by one

I know the Storm is coming, but the Grain is all stored

So I sing of the Dance of the Lady, and Her Lord: (more)

 

Lord Of The Dance (Cont.)

 

 

2287

 

 

The Horn of the Lady cast its' sound 'cross the Plain

The birds took the notes, and gave them back again

Till the sound of Her music was a Song in the sky

And to that Song there is only one reply:

 

The moon in her phases, and the tides of the sea

The movement of the Earth, and the Seasons that will be

Are the rhythm for the dancing, and a promise thru the years

That the Dance goes on thru all our joy, and tears

 

We dance ever slower as the leaves fall and spin

And the sound of the Horn is the wailing of the wind

The Earth is wrapped in stillness, and we move in a trance,

But we hold on fast to our faith in the Dance!

 

The sun is in the southland and the days grow chill

And the sound of the horn is fading on the hill

'Tis the horn of the Hunter, as he rides across the plain

And the Lady sleeps 'til the Spring comes again

 

The Sun is in the Southland and the days lengthen fast

And soon we will sing for the Winter that is past

Now we light the candles and rejoice as they burn

And we dance the Dance of the Sun's return!

 

They danced in the darkness and they danced in the night

They danced on the Earth, and everything was light

They danced out the Darkness and they danced in the Dawn

And the Day of that Dancing is still going on!

 

I gaze on the Heavens and I gaze on the Earth

And I feel the pain of dying, and re-birth

And I lift my head in gladness, and in praise

For the Dance of the Lord, and His Lady gay

 

I dance in the stars as they whirl throughout space

And I dance in the pulse of the veins in your face

No dance is too great, no dance is too small,

You can look anywhere, for I dance in them all!

 

 

That's peculiarly terrible. It really, really is.

There are many crimes against the world in that song, but two syllables in the word "veins" just makes my blood run cold.

 

Allow me to respond:

 

Fuck off, you stupid hippy twats,

You're not more cool when you sing like that,

There's much more wisdom in a football chant,

And your cosmic drivel makes you sound a [over-used word].*

 

 

(*footnotes: Prithee take heed, brothers and sisters of Albion, that "[over-used word]" is here enunciated in the south-eastern England dialect of the Cockernee.

Thusly, "cant" like in Brian Cant. Hey Nonny Bollocks.)
