During World War II, the Nazis conjured up a red-skinned devil baby. U.S. soldiers rescued him, named him Hellboy, and Professor Bruttenholm (John Hurt) took him under his wing. Flash ahead in time; seven-feet-tall Hellboy (Ron Perlman) is now a muscular, cigar-chomping spewer of one-liners who sports a red tail. Although he doesn't fit the typical description of an agent, the FBI uses him as their special weapon to protect the U.S. against supernatural powers.
