Hellboy was brought to our world near the end of WWII, summoned by Grigori Rasputin. Hellboy was not the demon that was originally supposed to be summoned, but he slipped through the portal anyways. He was found by Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm.
Hellboy was raised on an Air Force base in New Mexico by the BPRD ( Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense), a secret association established to help fight occult threats. As an adult, Hellboy became the primary agent of the BPRD, working alongside Kate Corrigan, Abe Sapien, and Liz Sherman.
As stated in the opening paragraph, Hellboy is one of my favorite comic book heroes. Although he is not the most relate-able of characters, he has a human aura around him, making him pretty cool. I’ve ended up loving this character more than I ever thought I would. He’s just so damn cool!
