Spawn is a fictional character, an anti-hero that appears in a monthly comic book of the same name published by Image Comics. Created by Todd McFarlane, the character first appeared in Spawn #1.
Spawn wears a living, sentient necroplasm-based symbiote suit, named Leetha of the 7th house of K (K7-Leetha). The suit feeds from the necroplasm in Spawn’s body and his cape, spikes, and chains are all part of an organism that is bonded to his central nervous system. As a result of this connection he can mentally manipulate the suit to perform shape-shifting feats. The suit also gives him superhuman strength, speed, endurance, movement, and healing. It also gives him the ability to control necro-magic, which in turn gives him the powers of teleportation, resurrection of the dead, control of the elements, and much more. He is empathic and can sense others emotions. He can feed off of the evil energy of the world, people, or animals. He is virtually immortal unless he is in a realm that cannot be affected by hell.
A highly trained assassin, murdered by his employer and former friend Chapel. Albert ”Al” Francis Simmons sold his soul to Malebolgia, one of the many rulers of the Hell, in order to see his wife Wanda Blake again. Malebolgia had other things in mind for Al and sent him back to earth with no memory as a Hellspawn, one of his soldiers, to do his bidding.
