History

Under Jasper Winters

John Constantine made a promise to Winters that he will give the keyes to the millhouse to Liv after his death. In 2014, shortly after Jasper indeed died, John escorted Liv, now chased by demon Furcifer to a millhouse, to keep her safe. After demon was deafeated Liv decided to leave property for Constantine and Chas Chandler to fight the Rising Darkness, among with the map she made using her divination powers.[1]

Soon after Zed Martin moved from Heddwich to Atlanta to join the team, after Constantine went to Heddwich to investigate the mysterious death of Lannis Cadogan. [2]

Trivia

  • Millhouse being larger on the inside is a reference to TARDIS from Doctor Who television series.
    • It is not the only reference to the series in Constantine as John also posesses a magical Six of Diamonds card which is very similar in its functions to Psychic paper from Doctor Who.

Behind the scenes

  • In DC Comics, Baron Winter's residence, Wintersgate Manor functions as a veritable gateway to different locations and time periods, which is directly referenced when Zed Martin opens the door which leads to an endless corridor. Wintersgate Manor, just as the millhouse also serves for a supernatural vigilante/superhero team, Night Force, led by Winters. John Constantine was not a member of the team, but crossed the paths with them and their leader on multiple occassions.
  • Another similar mansion in DC comics House of Mystery which John Constantine has used for a while as his main base of operations in the current DC Comics continuity. Millhouse shares a few similarities with the House of Mystery, including an assortment of books and artifacts belonging to John Constantine.
