History WMG / Hellboy

Go To



* In the latest BPRD arc, it's mentioned by Sir Edward Grey that Hellboy still has two things left to do, and that Grey tried to "spare" him from doing the first one. Hellboy tells him that he knows, and neither of them seems to be too happy as to what Hellboy will have to do. Hellboy may not end up a villain as such, but he could very well become a [[DestructiveSaviour destructive saviour]]. He does still have the Right Hand of Doom, after all, and one of the powers of the Right Hand is the ability to awaken the lifeless legions of Hell and command them. And even though Hell's infernal hierarchy is no more courtesy of Hellboy, the aforementioned legions have gone nowhere and are waiting...

** In that case, we'd have to include IndianaJones as part of the same universe, since he also races against the Nazis to get the Spear in 1945 (note, though, that the Spear in the Indy story has not yet been found when the story starts, but in ''Hellboy'' the Nazis supposedly had the Spear as far back as the 1930s). At the end of the story, the Spear is acquired by the U.S. government; its power, we are told, allows them to develop and deploy the atomic bomb.

It's got a cigar-shaped body with tentacles radiating around each end, and it'd be an appropriate Creator/HPLovecraft reference with which to maintain the Verse's thematic connection to the Cthulhu Mythos, despite ''HBII'' being about fey rather than CosmicHorror.

**Or the Angel of Death, like Rasputin in the previous film, think that they can make Hellboy's destroy the world destiny happen if they just keep repeating it. Some people just want to be right. Maybe Liz' ultimate suffering consists of Hellboy trying to comfort Abe over the loss of Nuala, resulting in years of drunken duets. The horrors.

decay are- so far- inevitable. The FairFolk are fading away, the human race is under siege and entire cities are being wiped out, and even Hell is suffering the effects. Why should Heaven be immune?

** I thought the Angel was referring to the pain of watching the love of her life turn into an unrecognizable, soulless monster that triggers the apocalypse. And depending on how much the kids take after Dad, they could become monsters, too.
