Hellboy will become the third and final character to be added to the roster in Injustice 2 as part of Fighter Pack 2 come November 14.
His inclusion follows last month’s introduction of Mortal Kombat’s popular thunder god Raiden, as well as Black Manta back in September. Created by writer-artist Mike Mignola, Hellboy first made his appearance in August 1993 in San Diego Comic-Con Comics #2. He has since made numerous guest appearances in varying forms of media, and starred in two live-action feature films in 2004 and 2008 starring Ron Perlman.
A half-demon who true name is Anung Un Rama, Hellboy was summoned to Earth by Nazi occultists. His towering red-skinned frame strikes fear into the hearts of those who dare to step into his path. Sporting a tail, cloven hooves and an oversized right hand made of stone dubbed the “Right Hand of Doom”, Hellboy works for an international non-governmental agency whose purpose is to rid the world of dark forces. Smelling like dry-roasted peanuts, he is often described as the “World’s Greatest Paranormal Investigator.”
