About Hellboy comics
He is a demon whose real name is Anung Un Rama, brought to earth by Nazi occultist as an infant.
As the final days of World War II nears, the Nazis resort to black magic to sustain their dying cause, Hellboy was conjured. He was discovered by the Allied Forces; among them was the head of United States Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm.
The professor tried to raise him as a normal boy. Hellboy grew up to be a huge, red skinned demon with a tail and horns that have been cut off, leaving two circular stumps in his forehead. Instead of feet, he has cloven hooves and an over sized right hand made of stone.
Hellboy joined the BPRD, fighting against dark forces that include Baba Yaga and the Nazis. He was later identified as the World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator aided with superhuman strength, resilience, and healing powers.
