"Down there, they twist a man's soul until he's no longer human."
John Constantine[src]

Hell, also known as the Underworld[1] and Sheol,[2] is an inter-dimensional location where demons, fallen angels, and the souls of damned humans reside. The souls that died are sent there to be tortured by the other demons for the rest of eternity. Furcifer implies that some souls who are sent to Hell can become demons as well. Certain parts of Hell are extremely hot, according to John Constantine.[3] It is ruled by the Triumvirate of Hell, but nearly fell under Neron's rule in 2019.

After Neron's death, Astra releases the Encores and plots secretly against the Triumvirate of Hell to become the new queen of Hell.


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

Pathway to Hell, opened by the Devil's Acetate

After Astra Logue was possessed by a demon, John Constantine attempted to summon a greater demon, Nergal, to expel the lesser demon out of her. However, Nergal dragged her away, damning her to Hell.[4]

When John Constantine turned the Devil's acetate dark magic upon itself and banished it back to Hell, a great red-lit pathway downwards into the ground was left in wake of the acetate's "falling" into Hell.[5]

John Constantine was somehow sent to Hell, sometime between late 2015 and early 2016.[6] He finally got out around May 2016.

On Earth-19, specifically, the world Breacher hails from, Hell is primarily called "Sheol".[2]

In 2018, John Constantine and the Legends began utilizing a spell that sent magical creatures they encountered to Hell. These beings were formerly kept in an extra-dimensional prison alongside the demon Mallus. Notable beings that the Legends have encountered and sent to Hell include Unicorns and Tabitha. When Astra Logue began resurrecting some of history's most notorious villains, Constantine began traveling to and from Hell at will by ingesting blood or other essences from the so-called "Encores" the Legends captured.

Angry at Harrison Nash Wells for releasing Mobius and helping to start the Anti-Monitor Crisis, J'onn J'onzz told Nash that he almost damned everyone to Hell.[7]

Astra told her origin in an attempt to join a sorority.[8]

Zari Tarazi tells John to go to Hell when he tries to dissuade her from resurrecting her brother; he reminds her that he has been there and back.[9]

  • Hell does have time, but it flows differently than on Earth.
    • When Constantine went to Hell, he saw the adult Astra Logue; only five years had passed since she was banished there as a child.
    • Despite Constantine entering through a portal in the Dark Ages, he ended up in "the present day" (the same day Neron was attempting to take over hell).

Behind the scenes

  • Scenes presumably happening in Hell are used in the intro for Constantine.
  • Since Lucifer was revealed to take place on Earth-666 in the shared multiverse, each Earth likely has its own Hell. However, it is also possible that each Earth has a different section of Hell.
    • Though conversations in Lucifer imply that this is not true; Amendiel and Dromos made it clear that only an angel can rule Hell, and that there is only one ruler for Hell on Earth-666.
