Hellboy is a large red demon who was brought to Earth by the Nazis while he was still an infant. Soon thereafter he was rescued by Professor Trevor "Broom" Bruttenholm, an occult expert who raised him as his beloved son and taught him to love good and despise darkness. The adult Hellboy cuts an imposing figure: he's almost seven feet tall and must constantly file down his horns so they don't impale his closest friends. Now, the benevolent, self-deprecating demon fights the powers of evil as a member of the government's Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. His colleagues at the Bureau include his pyro-telekinetic girlfriend Liz and the amphibious, web-fingered Abe Sapien. Together, the "freaks" must defeat the ancient, evil Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin, the twisted and long-lived monk who helped the Nazis bring Hellboy to Earth over sixty years ago.
