* DemonOfHumanOrigin: Spawn struck a DealWithTheDevil to get out of hell. Numerous {{retcon}}s mean that [[DependingOnTheWriter the details vary]], but typically he is granted [[TheUndead undeath]] and a host of demonic powers with the understanding that he will one day lead TheLegionsOfHell against heaven, and typically he's [[FaustianRebellion none too keen about keeping up his end of the bargain]] and always [[AscendedDemon searching for redemption]] to get out of it.

Furthermore, the heavily-publicized idea of creator rights surrounding {{Image}} in the early [[TheNineties nineties]] was, unfortunately, muddled when creator Todd [=McFarlane=] stopped writing and drawing the comic himself, and even had legal problems for using characters created by Creator/NeilGaiman (Angela and Cogliostro). However, he has since announced his intention to return to the main series, and is in the credits as co-writer and inks for the next few currently-unreleased issues.

After his death, Al meets a devil named Malebolgia, and his [[TheDragon Dragon]] Violator (who goes disguised as a clown in the mortal realm). He makes a DealWithTheDevil in an attempt to go back to his "loving" wife Wanda. He comes back as a NinetiesAntiHero with a living costume and Green Goo powers, powerful but finite, and must use those powers to increase the army of Hell and train as one of its lieutenants, called (Hell)Spawns, as Malebolgia, [[TheManBehindTheMan Mammon]], and [[BigBad Satan]] prepare for the Apocalypse. He finds a {{Mentor}} named Cogliostro, a retired Spawn who fills the role of TheObiWan and AllPowerfulBystander.

Spawn befriends some bums in an alley, and becomes a urban-based vigilante. He fights [[ActionGirl Angela]], an angel trained to slay Spawns, who he later befriends as she becomes a DefectorFromDecadence. He also interacts with his former best friend and Wanda's current husband Terry. After receiving antagonism from Violator (who is determined to see him keep to his obligations with Malebolgia), using his Green Goo powers to save Terry's life by curing his cancer, and presenting Wanda's daughter Cyan with a cursed shoelace, he goes back to the BonusLevelOfHell and re-visits his former foes. Malebolgia also mentions that his memories may be fake.

* {{Retcon}}: The ''Spawn: Resurrection'' is intended as a ContinuityReboot of sorts that undoes most of what went on between Al becoming a Hellspawn and his suicide: [[spoiler:God is now a good guy, and Al Simmons had a son who was stillborn rather than a daughter he aborted himself.]]

It later had an AnimatedAdaptation for {{Creator/HBO}} that viciously battered the AnimationAgeGhetto, and is often seen as being of [[AdaptationDistillation higher quality than the comic]]. [[Film/{{Spawn}} The movie]] (1997) placed Creator/MichaelJaiWhite in the lead role, TheresaRandle as his wife, MartinSheen as Wynn and JohnLeguizamo as arch-foe Clown/Violator. The film was somewhat cartoonish, but it is said the sequel, still in DevelopmentHell, will have a high MindScrew level.
