Hellboy is a paranormal investigator, superhero and the star of the comic book series Hellboy.
Hellboy is a creature, summoned in the final months of World WarII by Grigori Rasputin on Tarmagant Island, off the coast of Scotland, having been commissioned by the Nazis to change the tide of war . As a direct result of this ritual, he appears on Earth in a fireball in a ruined church in east bromwich, England, on December 23, 1944. But a devil-like creature with red skin, horns, a tail, and a disproportionately large right hand made of red stone, he is dubbed "Hellboy" by Professor Trevor "Broom" Bruttenholm.
Taken by the army to an air force base in New Mexico, Hellboy is raised by the U.S Army and by the bureau of paranormal research and defense (BPRD), a private organization dedicated to combating occult threats. However, it is not until he eats his first human meal (a meal of pancakes) that he is forever bound to the mortal world.
Hellboy was granted "honorary human" status by the united nations in 1952, and is known as the "world's greatest paranormal investigator". As such, he interacts regularly with humans, primarily law enforcement officials, the military, and various "scholars of the weird", most of whom are not presented as overtly reacting to his strange appearance.
