Neron is an evil demon and the ruler of Hell.
After taking over Papa Midnite's club Midnight, Neron began a play to takeover and rule New York City and then the rest of the world. Because of this, Neron found himself an enemy of John Constantine.
After trapping Constantine and Midnite in Hell to be tortured, Constantine escaped and attempted to stop Neron's plan. Neron, anticipating this, hexed Constantine, casting a spell that would stop him from interfering in any further plans. However, the Brit managed to get around the spell by recruiting help and dismantling Neron's plan, sending him back to Hell without anything to show for it.
- Neron was created by Mark Waid and Howard Porter, first appearing in Underworld Unleashed #1. However, in the Prime Earth continuity Neron first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Constantine: The Hellblazer #8 by James Tynion IV, Ming Doyle, and Riley Rossmo.
