"The girls are back in town! The Charmed Ones return in this brand new fantasy series from Zenescope that picks up where the series left off. Claiming their victory in the battle against evil, Piper, Phoebe, and Paige were free to settle into the future with their husbands and children, destined to live out the happily ever after they had so rightfully earned... or so they thought."
—This issue's synopsis.

Charmed Lives is the first issue of the Charmed Comics, picking up eighteen months after the events of Forever Charmed. By this point, Piper and Leo have had a third child, Melinda, Phoebe has married Coop and had the daughter she had foreseen many times before, Prue, and Paige and Henry have had their twin daughters.

In this issue, Neena and Hogan are introduced, two evils who plot against the Charmed Ones, despite the Angel of Destiny telling them that they had already completed their destiny. Melinda and Prue come into their respective powers of teleportation and beaming in this comic, while Paige gives a lecture with Leo at Magic School where a student named Jessalyn is transformed by a backfired spell.

Plot Edit

About eighteen months after the Ultimate Battle between the Charmed Ones and Billie and Christy Jenkins, a demon named Neena and her partner, Hogan, wait in a club for someone. The two were then visited by an Angel of Destiny, who told them that their plans were not part of the Grand Design, as their targets had already fulfilled [[Charmed Ones' their destiny. Hogan then told her that he controlled his own destiny before Neena created a portal and sent the Angel through it against her will. She said that she did not know where she sent her victims, but hoped it was somewhere "nasty". Finally, a little man named Weasel, the person they had been waiting for, arrived and gave Hogan a piece of paper, and then proceeded to make a move on Neena. She quickly used her fire power to throw him over the balcony they were on, apparently killing him, and everyone else in the club began to fight.

Presumably the following day, Paige gives a lecture to one of Leo's classes.

Notes Edit

Powers Edit

Spells Edit

I call upon the ancient power,
To mask me now and in future hours.
Hide me well and thoroughly,
But not from those called family.

This spell was cast by Jessalyn with permission from Paige, who knew the spell would backfire. However, as soon as it was complete, Jessalyn transformed into a huge, hideous monster. The effects were presumably reversed by Paige.

Potions Edit

The potion was orange in colour, and it spilled out of a small jar. None of its ingredients are known, nor are any of its ingredients, but its possible that it was just a mixture of all the substances and liquids that Melinda conjured or teleported onto the work surface.
