Neron src

Neron is an incredibly powerful demon who feasts on the innocence of children.[2] He became the ruler of Hell after the departure of Lucifer Morningstar, until he was eventually dethroned by Raven.[3]

DC Rebirth

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.[4]

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.

Infinite Frontier

Dark Crisis

The Great Darkness eventually took control of Neron's mind, alongside many other cosmic forces of evil who had sought its power.[5]

The Darkness' forces invaded the Multiverse, and Justice League Incarnate and the Justice League of Earth 0 tracked the origin point of the invasion to the ruins of the pre-Crisis Multiverse. Doctor Multiverse teleported the teams to Multiverse-2 where Pariah was modifying his antimatter chamber from the first Crisis to allow the Darkness to enter reality.

The heroes attempted to reason with Pariah but he refused to listen and summoned Neron and the other possessed villains. However, Green Arrow was able to destroy the chamber, cutting the Darkness' link to reality and causing Neron and the rest of the Darkness' forces to dissipate.[6]

Neron and the rest of the Dark Army later invaded Earth 0.[7] The heroes managed to banish Pariah to a pocket universe but Neron and the others remained possessed as the corrupted Darkness transferred to Deathstroke.[8] Black Adam used his lightning again to purge the Darkness from Deathstroke, freeing Neron and the other possessed villains.[9]

Hell on Earth

Neron was eventually dethroned by Raven, who then passed on the infernal throne on to Lady Blaze for a period of time.[3]
