Zatanna: Hellish Elementals

A couple of weeks back I put up a post about Zatanna vs Demons.

I wanted to come back to these monsters for the May Monster Madness.

In truth Zee doesn't fight a lot of monsters.  Bad guys, demons and arch fiends sure, but not your garden variety monsters.

The closest were a trio of demonic elementals that she fights in issues #4 and #5 of the recent Paul Dini run of Zatanna.

These creatures took the shape of old women, but underneath were hellish fire elementals in the shape of young women.

Zatanna wa able to defeat them by redirecting a swimming pool that had been blessed into holy water into her hotel room.

Basic Era D&D / The Witch (because I can)

Armor Class:  3 [16]

Hellions cause fear as per the spell (Save vs. Paralysis to negate).  They also breathe out a lick of flame while attacking, save vs Breath Weapon for half-damge.
Their bodies are made of flame, but they are not fire elementals in the strictest since. They are demonic spirits and thus unlike elemental they are intelligent and have individuality.  They can disguise themselves as human by finding a human and burning them from the inside out.  They then can crawl into their skin and use that as a suit.

Some demonic elementals are hot in more than one way ;-)

"These creatures took the shape of old women, but underneath were hellish fire elementals in the shape of young women."

Prompting some random dude off-screen in the comic to ask, "When did you get so hot?!?"

Well, at least Magaly and I had the same rough idea. :)

Beautiful artwork. One second I'm reading the comic, the next I'm reading about Armor class and got time-warped back to the 70s, where I was rolling 20-sided dice and worrying about hit points and where the nearest cleric was.
Fun post! :-) said...

It makes me want to go out and buy a comic book right this minute. Just stopped in on the Blog Hop for MAY MONSTER MADNESS.
