"So I grew up in Hell, had minions do my bidding, and rose to power 'til I practically ran the place."
—Astra[src]

Astra Logue (born c. 2005[1]) is the daughter of Alex Logue and the late Natalie Logue. She was accidentally damned to Hell after a botched attempt at exorcism by John Constantine.

During the chaos of Neron taking control of Hell from the Triumvirate, Astra stole eighteen evils souls and released them from Hell, allowing them to resurrect on the new Earth-Prime.

She plots secretly against the Triumvirate to become the new queen of Hell and to take her revenge on John Constantine.

Finally, Ava convinces her that the Fates manipulate her and that the time is come for her to choose her destiny. Astra leaves Hell with Ava, Mick and Gary to come on the Waverider.

Later Lachesis asks her a favor to repay her debt; Astra Logue is forced to join the Fates due to her drinking from the Chalice of Dionysius and having immortality for 24 hours. After stealing the Waverider, Lachesis manipulates Astra into staying loyal to the Fates by showing her the pain and suffering Astra would have as a human. She is later convinced by Gary Green to rejoin the Legends and redeem herself, only to be killed by Atropos who figured out her plan. She was ultimately restored by Charlie using the Loom of Fate.

Biography

Original multiverse

Condemned to Hell

Astra Logue

While at Newcastle, John accidentally damned Astra's soul to Hell trying to extort the demon Nergal into fighting another demon for him.

After Astra was possessed by a demon, John Constantine, Anne Marie Flynn, Gary Lester, Ritchie Simpson and Chas Chandler all came to her aid in attempt to exorcise the demon from her body. However, Renee (Chas's ex-wife) said that Astra's own father used her as a tool in his black magic rituals, so John attempted to summon a greater demon, Nergal, to instruct the lesser demon to leave her. While the plan worked, Nergal then violently dragged Astra to Hell for eternity in front of everyone.[1]

In Hell

Soon after arriving into Hell, Astra was found by Lachesis who becomes her adoptive mother and motivates her hate for John Constantine, manipulating her for her own ends.[2]

Five years later, John traveled to Hell to save the soul of Ray Palmer.[3] Upon arriving, Satan offered John a chance to save Astra's instead. John chose to save her, but Astra, now a grown woman, revealed to John that she didn't want to leave Hell, preventing John from saving both her and Ray.[4]

Later in Hell, Astra helps John and Nora Darhk break into the Soul Exchange to get Ray's soul token. While the two of them look for his, Astra secretly steals sixteen evil souls (including Caligula, Charles Manson, Genghis Khan, Grigori Rasputin, John Wayne Gacy, Joseph Stalin, Lizzie Borden, Mary Tudor, Marie Antoinette, Bugsy Siegel, Kathy Meyers and Damien Darhk). She later goes to the front desk of the Soul Exchange and releases the sixteen souls from Hell, offering them a second chance.[5]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Astra as well as everyone in the multiverse except for the seven Paragons, was killed in an antimatter wave by the Anti-Monitor on December 10, 2019,[6] only to be restored a month later, after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe.[7]

New multiverse

John Constantine[src]

In the new multiverse, the chain of events surrounding Astra being dragged to Hell is changed. John Constantine was an old friend and lover of Astra’s mother Natalie Logue and after she was killed by a drunk driver John attempted to resurrect her by summoning a demon, however the demon took Astra and dragged her to Hell. Astra’s devastated mother then committed suicide out of guilt.[8]

Leaving Hell to the Waverider


This section is a stub. You can help expand this section by adding some information.

With the three rings of the Loom of Fate found, Astra and John Constantine decide that it is time for him to keep his promise and revive her mother; however, when the Legends have a meeting as to who should be resurrected first, Clotho chooses Behrad Tarazi. The attempt is a failure though and results in damaging the Waverider. Astra thinks that she can help since she was groomed to be a Fate, but she is denied access to the Loom. Later, when the Loom disappears, she is blamed and imprisoned, but video footage obtained by Zari Tarazi reveals that the hellhound Marchosias caused it to be flushed into the sanitary system. After tricking the Legends into releasing her, Astra tells Constantine the hellhound's real name, allowing him to cast a banishing spell. Zari offers Astra a tour of the ship as a sign of friendship, but Astra quickly rejects it.[10]

Astra becomes a founding member of Delta Chi Sigma; she is later approached by Lachesis who wants a favor after Astra drank from the Chalice of Dionysus and gained temporary godhood.[11]

Reluctantly Betraying the Legends, Redemption, and Death

After joining the Fates to repay her debt, Astra is forced to steal the Waverider as Lachesis and Atropos board it and reclaim their rings. While onboard Astra clashes with Atropos over feelings and loyalty. Atropos suggests killing Astra after she mentions that in return for her loyalty to the Fates, Astra wants her mother brought back to life. However, Lachesis stops Atropos from attempting to kill her ex-protege, Astra. While Atropos is conjuring zombies to stop the Legends in 2020 Britain, Lachesis manipulates Astra by showing her a vision of her mother dying in front of her again. After witnessing this, Astra decides to spare herself the trouble and reluctantly joins the sisters as the third Fate.[12]

Death of Astra

After Atropos discovers that someone stole the three rings to their loom of fate, Astra quickly finds out it’s Gary Green after seeing the carrots from his bunny. After the trio capture Gary, Lachesis and Atropos have Astra torture Gary for information on where he hid the rings, since he used his magic to teleport them somewhere. Whilst torturing him, Gary forces Astra to open up on her good memories with her mom when they were picking strawberries. After she shared that memory, Gary finally convinced Astra to betray the Fates. As Astra was about to free him and they were about to fix the Time Courier to escape, Atropos entered the room. Atropos told her she is just as weak as any other human and her immortality is up. After that, Atropos throws her dagger at Astra, striking her in the heart, killing her, much to Gary’s horror.[12]

Resurrection

Charlie resurrects Astra but removes her memories and makes her a part of the television show Highcastle Abbey so that she and the Legends will not be killed by the Fates for inciting free will in the otherwise docile masses of their remade world. To pacify Astra, Charlie made Natalie a character as well with Constantine as their manservant. Eventually, Astra regains her memories, and ultimately chooses to leave the fantasy when she discovers that Natalie is fictional.[13]

New Residence

Astra accompanies the other Legends in their attempt to destroy the Loom; Constantine tells her that if she focuses her magical powers, she is very potent. Constantine has her focus on her mother to focus the magic, but during her spellcasting, she is distracted with memories of Lachesis. She later confides in Constantine that she does not know where her loyalties lie, between her biological mother or her adopted one.

Astra confronts Lachesis and learns that Lachesis was more concerned about replacing Clotho than actually raising her. Lachesis soon sends Encores to kill her and the Legends and Astra fights for her life.

After the battle, Astra says farewell to Zari Tomaz. At the farewell party, she tells Constantine that she will live in his house; to pay the rent, she hands him his soul token.[14]

Legacy

The violent act in Newcastle that led to Astra's banishment to Hell caused to the group of magic users to split up, and John to place himself in Ravenscar Psychiatric Facility for the Mentally Deranged, where he continued to be haunted by his actions. Anne Marie became a nun in New Mexico, Gary started to do drugs more often and Ritchie put it behind him.[1]

Eventually, John was offered the opportunity to stop the "Rising Darkness" and chose to do it to honor Astra.[1]

While possessing Sara Lance, the demon Mallus used Astra's voice to offer Constantine Astra's soul in exchange for Sara's, John did not believe him and continued to exorcise him. John later told Sara that had he believed that Mallus was telling the truth about freeing Astra's soul, he would have taken the offer without any hesitation.But, he later discovers that Astra has became evil because during all this time she has passed in Hell.[15]

Personality

Before being unfairly commended to Hell, Astra was a kind, caring, polite, cheerful and innocent child. However, she got possessed by a demon who then killed her in retaliation after being exorcised out of her dragging her spirit to Hell,[1] where she quickly grew up losing her innocence and start blaming John Constantine for her being there.[4]

Although Astra did admit that, before she lost her innocence, she believed he would rescue her from the literal Hell she was in one day.

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics, Astra Logue (also called Astrid), is the abused daughter of club-owner, Alex Logue. In 1978, she had summoned up a demon called Norfulthing that killed Logue and his associates. John Constantine and the Newcastle Crew tried to summon another demon to defeat it but failed to name and bind it properly. That demon, Nergal, killed Norfulthing as well took Astra to Hell with him. This failure greatly impacted John and led him to be committed to Ravenscar Secure Facility. However, at the end of the Critical Mass storyline, John succeeds in freeing Astra and every child's soul trapped in Hell, allowing them to depart to Heaven.
