SpawnSpawn is the main character of a comic book of the same title from Todd McFarlane Productions. Spawn was one of the flagship titles at the launch of Image Comics, and the first issue hit the newstands in May of 1992.
Al Simmons was a highly decorated member of the Secret Service, notably saving the President in an attempted assassination, and CIA. After his murder in a foreign country by his superior Jason Wynn, the US government agent Al Simmons makes a deal with the devil. Sent to hell because of his life as a mercenary, Simmons becomes a Hellspawn and agrees to serve Malebolgia if the devil will allow him to see his wife, Wanda, one last time. Malebolgia returns Simmons to the living realm, but with only the barest of memory, a badly burned body, and a watch dog, the Clown. Simmons is unaware that five years have passed. His wife has married his best friend, Terry Fitzgerald, and the two have a daughter, Cyan.
His life over, Simmons has two choices before him: follow Malebolgia, or renounce the demon. The two choices come in the form of Clown, a diminutive, portly, disgusting minor demon (who can transform into the huge, fanged, clawed Violator), and Cogliostro (Cog), an apparently homeless old man who knows more about Simmons (whom both call Spawn) and his situation than even he knows. Spawn eventually kills Malebolgia but refuses the throne of Hell. Upon returning to Earth, Spawn discovers he has new powers but soon must put them to use, engaging in battles against Clown, a dark god named Urizen, CIA agent Jason Wynn (who ordered Chapel and Priest to kill Al Simmons), and himself. In more recent issues a new character named Mammon has surfaced, and although he was previously thought to be a background character it has become evident that Mammon is much more important.
Spawn (film)Spawn, a movie adaptation of Todd McFarlane's creator-owned Image comic book, was released in the United States on August 1, 1997. The film was directed and co-written by Mark Dippé (a former animator at ILM) and executive produced by McFarlane and Alan Blomquist. The movie starred Michael Jai White as Al Simmons/the Hellspawn, John Leguizamo as Al's demonic guide Violator, Nicol Williamson as Al's mentor Cogliostro, Theresa Randle as Al's widow Wanda Blake, D.B. Sweeney as Wanda's husband Terry Fitzgerald, and Martin Sheen as Jason Wynn, Al's former government employer.
