Hellboy | Comics

During the crucial era of World War II, the Nazis recruited the evil mystic Grigori Rasputin’s aid in a desperation to turn the tides of the war against the allied forces and through a magic ritual he teleported a Half-Demon, humanoid like creature to a churchyard in England. Their ritual was interrupted by the allied forces and soon, the boy was found by the American soldiers.

A young Professor Trevor Bruttenholm of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.), decides to adopt and raise this devilish-looking boy after naming him “Hellboy”. By the time he was eight, the boy joined the Bureau as a paranormal investigator and through Bruttenholm's guidance he soon becomes an occult expert with extensive knowledge on that particular subject.

Though he grew up only a little on age but got an appearance of a full-grown middle-aged man with two horns on top of his forehead and a red skin. Despite having a demonic origin, he actually cares for the humans. Being the son of the demon Azzael, he possess super strength as well as nearly limitless endurance and the invulnerable massive forearm made from red stone, called the "Right Hand of Doom".

In his years as an active agent for the Bureau, he worked on cases of possession, haunting, exorcism, enchantments and fought creatures like Vampires, Werewolves and other mystical monsters as well. Following many of his investigative missions, he is often aided by his fellow teammate Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, Johann Kraus and B.P.R.D.'s finest field agents.
