ONCE UPON A TIME
The creative instincts of writer-artist Mike Mignola gave birth to the much talked about comic book character, red skinned "Hellboy". Interestingly, Hellboy was brought to earth by Nazi occultists. He was then discovered by the allied forces one among them was Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, who formed the United States Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence. As Hellboy grew up his looks deceived the eye of a lay man. His red skinned large physique, a tail and circular stumps on his forehead and an oversized right hand made of stone made him appear like a demon. But his appearance is a complete contrast to his behavior. Never does he show any violence in his action towards the human race, his thoughts are human rather than demonic. His traits are absolutely of generous intensity like humans.
And, this happened because he was raised like a normal boy by the Professor. He wanted Hellboy to grow up like a normal person, to help the human race and protect them from destruction by the demons. As a matter of fact, Hellboy's only family was professor and his research team, and hence he worked at ease with various other strange creatures in BPRD.
Not just that, Hellboy was granted the "honorary human" status by the United Nations in 1952. As such, his interaction with humans, primarily law enforcement officials, the military, and various "scholars of the weird", are implied and further makes him a very important personality to the society despite of his demonic appearance.
He is immensely powerful, can withstand powerful blows that would severely injure or kill a human. Not just that he can resist any kind of physical injury. Nonetheless, he is far from invulnerable, and can be injured by conventional weapons.
Hellboy is different from humans in aging. His rapid maturation is in sharp contrast to his actual rate of aging, which seems to be much slower than humans. Throughout the sixty-year span of the comics, he has not aged beyond the point at which he reached physical maturity. His innate ability of translating and interpreting ancient and magical languages makes him different. In addition to his natural physical abilities, Hellboy carries in the comic, movie as well as in the online slot a variety of items in his utility belt that can be used against various supernatural forces.
"Right Hand of Doom", like it is referred to, is Hellboy's right hand. It consists of a large forearm and hand made from red stone. Due to its large size he operates weapons and devices by his normal-sized lefts hand. The Hand is effectively invulnerable and feels no pain, and therefore better used as a sledgehammer to punch an enemy. But it is important for Hellboy to keep his arm with him all the time as it can function without him, hence Hellboy chooses to keep it, protect it and prevent it from being misused.
Hellboy's long drawn fight against the dark forces including Nazis and Baba Yaga owned him the title of "World's Greatest Paranormal Investigator". He fights for the BPRD and the human race and his deeds of bravery are very much evident in the book and also in the movie. This acclaimed huge amount critical appreciation from critics all over the world, making Hellboy an ideal character. He is one of the most intrinsic and intriguing comic action hero by far. He has a huge fan following. His much talked about characteristics, charm and weapons set him apart from every other character in the comic world. Watch the Video of the hellboyslot here…
