View full history
The Nightmare Nurse was created by Dan Didio and J.M. DeMatteis in Phantom Stranger #8.
After the Phantom Stranger is stabbed and mortally wounded by the Question wielding the Spear of Destiny , the members of Justice League Dark come together to try and save him. When conventional magic fails to help him, Zatanna summons the Nightmare Nurse as a last resort. She is initially annoyed at being summoned since she was in the middle of a threesome with a dryad and sylph, but reveals that Apollo and Panacea made her swear the Hippocratic Oath once a long time ago, and thus she is compelled to help them. After being informed that the Stranger was attacked with the Spear of Destiny, she senses that his soul is no longer within his form, and with the help of Zatanna she manages to heal the Stranger by retrieving his soul from the land of Non.
During this encounter, it was also revealed that the Nurse and Constantine have a past; specifically a romantic one, and the Nurse was not very impressed with Constantine's prowess in bed ---- something that annoys him when the topic is brought up.
Asa comes to the aid of Constantine following Trinity War. She assumes the identity of Zatanna to bring him to his senses in the House of Mystery. She then aligns herself with John and Swamp Thing to battle the entity Blight.
