Superhero Origins: Spawn
Al Simmons was once the world's greatest soldier. However, his discovery of the ugly truth behind the Government’s internal dealings caused him to be eliminated. Sent to Hell for having killed innocents, he pledged his soul to the ruler of the Eighth Sphere of Hell in order to see his wife Wanda once again. Because of the demon's twisted sense of humor, he was returned to Earth five years after his death and transformed into a Hellspawn with a badly disfigured body and the task of collecting souls. Turning on hell, he devoted himself to combating evil and defending humanity. Join WatchMojo.com as we explore the comic book origins of Spawn.
