DC has now established the Mystic Trinity as being Zatanna, John Constantine and Deadman.

Anyone else think DC dropped the ball with this? In my mind, the mystic Trinity should be:

1. Dr. Fate (WHY is he not considered a part of the mystic Trinity, I'll never understand).

2. Zatanna

3. John Constantine.

Sorry, but Deadman is hardly ever used as a character while the 3 I mentioned are, plus Dr. Fate is THE most powerful Sorceror in the DC Universe, far above Zatanna and Constantine. Why does Deadman rate while Dr. Fate doesn't?



I would think that these are the three with the most commercial viability (i.e. television/film) and therefore DC want to push, and of course these are three who are members of the Justice League Dark squad. It is as straight-forward as that.

As you point out any seriously considered mystical 'trinity' would contain Doctor Fate as a matter of course, also The Phantom Stranger, and then possibly Zattanna as she is the most established and pre-eminent sorceror in the DCU after Fate.
John Constantine is largely amateur and small potatoes compared to these three, to say nothing of his untrustworthiness.
