Hellboy is a comic book character created by Mike Mignola. He's a demon with a Big-ass Revolver an a freaking stone for a fist.
Hellboy works for The BPRD (Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defence) which is a motley collection of freaks and ugly people. The Team consists of, Abe Sapien, a fish-man or to get tecnical a ichyhyo sapien. (Yes,one of those). Liz Sherman a pyrokinetic, or in other words, she can control fire!!!!.Johann Krauss a medium's spirit kept in a specialised containment suit. Kate Corrigan a Professor of Folklore, she has no powers, which make her as useful in a fight as a BB gun. Ben Daimo a Spec Ops who died but came back to life, because that's the way he roll's. Also there's a midget called Roger but he sucks so screw him
Left to Right:Johann, Liz, Abe, Ben, Kate. (Not pictured:Hellboy'cus he's to cool, Roger'cus he's a loser)
Hellboy has superhuman strength and a high pain threshold. He has a healing factor (Way to rip-off Wolverine, Mike) That lets him heal from any injury. He is not Fire-proof. Which is ironic considering he's the bringer of the Apocalypse, which yano, is gonna have a shit-load of fire.
Hellboy's right hand is effectionatley called The Right Hand of Doom. Nice. The hand is made of a indestructable-stone-like substance. HB uses it to punch the badguy's in the head, but the hand also serves as a key, used to unlock the Ogdru Jahad.
Hellboy's secondary weapon is a big Revolver, but he's a lousy shot. In his belt he carries several relics and supernatural detterent's, such as holy water, herbs and clover's.
A movie-adaption was released in 2004, starring Ron Perlman, Selma Blair and John Hurt. It was directed by Guillermo Del Toro.
The story follows Hellboy and the team as they try to stop Rasputin's attempt to aweken the Ogdru Jahad. (Pesky Russian's!!!!!!!!). Del Toro in injected his flair for fantasy into the film and the casting was pretty good too. It starred:
Ron Perlman as Hellboy.
Selma Blair as Liz Sherman.
Doug Jones as Abe Sapien.
John Hurt as Professor Trevor Broom.
Karel Roden as Grigori Rasputin.
The sequel got bigger and better, it showed more of the fantasy world also a young goofy looking Hellboy. Also Luke Goss as an Elf, yes you heard me, an Elf. The story shows Prince Nuada as he attempt's to start a war with the human's. Johann Krauss also joins the team,much to the annoyance of Hellboy.
