History: (Day of Judgment #1-5) - When Asmodel merged with the Spectre and unleashed Hell on Earth Zatanna formed the Sentinels of Magic to combat him. The Sentinels separated Asmodel from most of the Spectre-Force, containing it in Madame Xanadu's orb. They knew it was only a temporary measure, and sent Captain Marvel, Starfire and S.T.R.I.P.E. into orbit to retrieve the Spear of Destiny. The Sentinels split up, some going to Purgatory to find a new suitable vessel for the Spectre, and some going to Hell to reignite its' fire that Asmodel put out in order to send the armies of Hell back home. The group that went to Purgatory brought back Green Lantern Hal Jordan, but Asmodel turned his soul to glass and shattered it. Dr. Fate restored Hal, allowing Hal to take the Spectre-Force. The Sentinels in Hell reignited the hellfire pits when Faust sacrificed new Sentinel member Enchantress, returning the demon army to Hell. The Sentinels welcomed Dr. Fate and Sentinel onto their team, and agreed to meet whenever magical threats menaced Earth.
(Martian Manhunter II #28) - The Sentinels battled the Demon, who’d been separated from Jason Blood and was tapping into the power of Stonehenge. At Phantom Strangers request Martian Manhunter joined the Sentinels in battle, and found Morgan Le Fay, who had Jason Blood trapped in a tesseract jewel. Manhunter shattered the jewel, freeing Blood, and ending the Demon’s threat.
(JLA #68) - Atlantis, ancient and in ruins, appeared on the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. The Sentinals investigated and cast a spell on the JLA to send them to 1,000 B.C. and determine the fate of the Atlantis that Tempest had sent back in time during the Imperiex War.
