Behind the scenes

  • The Claus of the North is a reference to the legendary figure Santa Claus, who is said to give gifts on Christmas Eve (December 24) to the homes of children who have been well-behaved all year long.
  • In the DC comics, John Constantine stated that Santa Claus was actually Agios Nikolaus (St. Nicholas). He was known for his benevolence and his miracles, which included resurrection. Even when he passed, his essence proved to be immortal. The superheroes Superman and Impulse are able to attest to his existence.
    • A darker version of Santa, Kris "Crusher" Kringle, was an expert martial artist who wielded two sharpened shivs and was a slave-owner. He was eventually decapitated by a bounty hunter named Lobo.
