    Some more twitterings and an image from James Tynion IV:

    I want to share this with you guys, just so you can get a few more hints as to who these terrifying new LORDS OF ORDER might be... @AMartinezBueno and I went back and forth a bunch on these. Each Lord is wielding an artifact of power on the scale of the Helmet of Nabu.

    How those guys, relate to The Lords of Order we've seen depicted over the years? The big blobby ethereal circles? Keep reading. This issue has a LOT of answers. The Lords of Order and Chaos were there when magic first began in the DC Universe...

    She had a vague origin anyway so you could do more. I want to bring back Secret but her story had a perfect end so Infinity is a good call.

    I think she had a prominent role in a Flashpoint title, IIRC.

    Actually no, she wasn't even present. She was the focus of World of Flashpoint.

    I've been fascinated with her for a while. One of the many reasons is because i don't really understand her powers. They say that she draws her magic from cities. It kinda reminds me of Jack Hawksmoor a little bit.

    I meant as part of their main gimmick. Like humans who hunt demons or an occult detective.

    Brimstone from the Superboy TV series was a human that used mystical potions and weapons to deal with supernatural threats. He aided Superboy against Byron Shelly, the son of Dracula. I would love to see him brought into the DC mainstream.



    Kid Crusader is a human demon hunter that went after Kid Devil in the Teen Titans series.

    Thanks, I knew she was in there somewhere. They sorta blend all together.
    I kinda forget the other books because Secret Seven interested me most.
    I'll update my post.

    Mindwarp.
    New character that first appeared during Flashpoint and was killed off a few years later.

    He was created for Secret Seven and was brought into the DCU with New52, as part of Justice League Dark.

    Most of the ones I'd add would be occultists.
    Would you count them?

    Occultists can be a bit hard to categorize, though. They tend not to have any powers of their own, and rely mostly on rituals or items of mystic origin.
    Where it can get fuzzy is when they prepare something beforehand and call on it later in a story, effectively using the ability as if it was a power.
    If the ability is 'spent' and requires another ritual or incantation, or if the ability requires the use of a mystical object, then I'd categorize them as non-powered.
    But I think if the writer has them pre-charged each issue with spells or abilities, they end up being a variation of Dial H for Hero and crossing over into super-powered being territory.
    It's kinda like how Batman (pre-Batgod) would skate the edge of being non-powered by having a utility belt with pre-charged items that just happened to be what was needed for the situation, with many of them emulating powers.

    DC also has a tendency to 'super hero up' characters. I think there may have been some non-powered occultists that have gained powers of their own or been revealed to have powers. Because it makes them 'cool' (or rather it makes them more palatable to mainstream readers -see Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen for examples of this).
    At least they've refrained from putting Constantine in spandex.
