IN ORIGINS

SPAWN

CIA FILES


THE HELLSPAWN

I was dead and went to Hell. In order to see my wife again, I made a deal with D. It turns out, I bargained more than I could hope for. I became a hellspawn.

Using CIA files, I tracked Wanda’s location. I found out she had re-married and had a daughter named Cyan. Then I got low.

A hellspawn I met, told me that I run on necroplasm magic, the juice that powers me. Once I get low, I must return to Hell.

I must learn to use my powers or else. What is necroplasm magic? A man showed up…

I was chasing an assailant that triggered an explosion with a box of bottles. Then, this man showed up!

Sigh… Just what I was looking for? Someone to teach me about my powers!

CHECK OUT THE ACTION: IMAGE DAY: SUPREME.

What is necroplasm magic? Well, it is based on the will’s ability to use extra-dimensional energies to alter perception. In this case, the hellspawn’s symbiote – the K7 suit – uses the energies of another dimension, Hell, to conjure magic, spells and even create objects!

The power to conjure and create objects is called manifestation.

Neat, huh?

Read on!

Necroplasm Magic: Other than the counter problems he had, the only limit to Spawn’s mystical ability was Spawn’s imagination. Having been able to conjure up a car key using his mystic energy, materialize a box of fine wine for his friends in the alley and even resurrect the dead at the cost of his necro meter.

I tested the suit in battle. A total rush of adrenaline! A hellspawn!

The evening ends with an invitation from Harry Houdini to an atomic bomb conference. What does that have to do with me?

Well, I still have to stop that kid that bombed me earlier!
