Today I will post the Tribute Thread of the one and only Spawn. It Surprises me that Images best Comic Seller that beat the Sales of Superman and Batman comics combine back in the 90s has faded into myth. So I am bringing him back in all his glory.

Who is Spawn? Spawn is Al Simmons who was the top assassin and soldier in the world. He was killed on assignment by his employer Wynn. He was sent to the 8th Sphere of Hell where he had to strike a bargain with the Malbolgia to return to the world as a Hell Spawn. However, he was more than the average Hell Spawn. He was sent back with a host of Souls of everyone who died the same time he had. He also was given powers by the Green World which furthered separate him from the rank and file Hell Spawn. He ends up becoming a super power of the super natural in his own right.

Spawn

There are many versions of Spawn. The Original was more street level, the Classic. Second Metamorphosis is the widely standard known Spawn. Then there is Hell King Spawn, same as Second Metamorphosis Spawn, but has unlimited Necro Power. Then we have Divine Spawn who was equal to God and Satan. Finally we have God Spawn who merged with Man of Miracle, the Highest Level Being in Image Comics. There is also Omega Spawn, he has unlimited Necro Energy, however little is known of him other than being a Omniversal Threat somehow.

Powers

Holy Hell this will be long. Spawn has many many powers. Reason for this is his power source. Psychoplasma, or Necroplasma, is a Reality Warping Magic Energy used by Hell and Heaven. It's only limit on Reality Warping is the Energy Count to perform a feat.

Angela was doing superb, but premature declared victory. Spawn with the Heaven Forge Sword kills Malbolgia, and becomes the rightful King of Hell.

Now Simon Pure. Simon Pure was the greatest of the Vampires. Being a agent of Heaven he is able to see Sinners and Unholy beings, then he kills them. His latest efforts was to bring about a city wide blood bath that Spawn had to stop.

One of Simon's best traits was his speed. In fact he is so fast that other Vampire that gave Spawn grief, Wolfram, knows he is outclass by Simon.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Cuts his head off with no effort in a Tavern full of people. So he cuts the head off of a top notch Vampire and then sheaths his sword. Whoa!

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5

Simone Pure moves so fast that Spawns Mach+ Speed Chains had trouble tagging this Vampire.

No Caption Provided

In fact Simon is so strong and fast that he hauled over 800 pounds of dead bodies in front of a police station faster than humans can see.

No Caption Provided

So fast that even the Security Video Camera frame by frame couldn't catch that! Without the 800+ pounds of dead bodies, and the large visual object he was carrying these bodies, well this makes Simon Pure near Hyper Sonic speedster!

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5Gallery image 6Gallery image 7Gallery image 8Gallery image 9

Here Spawn has a run in with more of Simon's horde. He then discoverers Simon and other lying in wait. Spawns does the best he can, however Simon gets away. Now we get to the Final Showdown between Spawn against Simon Pure and his Vampire Horde.

@cadencev2: Wow, I'm impressed, fantastic Spawn respect thread. However, when he loses his head, he does die in some fashion. Simmons decapitated himself somewhere around the 200th issue mark when Downing took over (I forget the exact issue, I stopped reading for the nth time after that happened). Given, he did seem to somehow resurrect as the villainous Omega Spawn after that, but it was still made clear that the old Spawn we knew was dead.

This Next Arc is all about Simmons lost of King of Hell Status to Cog.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5Gallery image 6Gallery image 7Gallery image 8Gallery image 9Gallery image 10Gallery image 11Gallery image 12Gallery image 13

A new Redeemer is created by Heaven. The strongest one yet, and it tracks Spawn down and proceeds to kill him with its Heavenly power. Spawn is then dragged to his Kingdom of Hell.

Violator has taken prominent strength and control of the Demon Hordes. The Punk Kid that Spawn killed in St Monica likewise leads all the damned souls in rebellion. Spawn is dragged to this Hell at War and is mentally tortured by Violator till Cog and Redeemer frees him.

Once freed, Spawn uses his power to summon the Hell Spawn Army and lay waste to both sides. This unleashing of Spawns Powers cause the entire 8th world of Hell to quack and fracture. Cog had different plans however as he used a piece of Eden to create paradise in Hell. This in turn led to Spawn, who toward the end took the crown of Hell finally, to forsake the title of King of Hell just as quick.

After this Spawn was giving a living body again, however it made him fragile and he had to re learn his powers again.

Mammon here shows being a Hell King means to have the power create your own worlds and bring life to them. Mammon himself is also the most Powerful Hell King being the one above Malbolgia!

This was a very powerful Being that Spawn and Angela brought down. On top of that Spawn inherited the power and crown as the King of the 8th Sphere of Hell.

I would include some on Jim Downing..since imo he's appeared to be the most relevant Spawn so far aside from Simmons and not to mention he's had some good showings with the powers so far such as bursting from the inside of that hell guard or when he sent that chainstorm throughout that vampire nightclub. Also when he sucked out the evil that the suit admitted to putting into the Freak(body possessed by Maelbolgia)was also relevant I suppose. Downing's Spawn is suppose to be even stronger then Simmons's was(partially due to Downing acquiring the suit while being alive compared to Simmons having died as explained by the Clown)and was stated not too long ago in his book that "Whoever controls Spawn controls the universe."

However..McFarlene's been writing it and it's as if the books consist of 90% dialogue and only 10% action.

Indeed..However it's good to see someone taking the time to give Spawn some credit again. It hurts me a little inside that this generation doesn't know Spawn as well as back in the 90's..And by that I mean some people still don't even know who he is. Then again that is true for other comic characters nowadays as well since I've overheard people in a movie theater before not know who guys like Thor or Captain America were either

People are more interested in what they can post on facebook or tweet about taking a crap than reading Comics :/

Her first battle with Simmons was one sided till Plot stepped in. He is a unique Hellspawn, the blast which would have killed a normal Hellspawn in one shot did not affect him the same way.

Here Angela hunts one of the most dangerous game outside of Hell. She handicaps herself by not realying on her Ribbons at all to make this hunt worth the thrill.

Angela teams up with Glory (Amazon Princess in Image) to take down a army of Angels and Amazons.

Angela and Spawn fight their way through Hell with no weapons to start with.

Here Angela fights denizens of this Limbo. She beats them easy enough. Then fights her twin sister Lilith. She owns her pretty handily, feeding her to the Argus. The Argus being the beast created from all the wasted souls of the planet they are on. Which Angela proceeds to easily beat as well.

Here angela fights of two Angelic Hosts. Each Host is 100,000 Angels. So Angela vs 200,000 of her sisters. No contest. Angela then helps Spawn beat down Urizen who is the Dark God of Limbo pretty much, equal to God and Satan in power.

After Urizen, she and Spawn battle Malbolgia in his home turph of the 8th Sphere. She easily does the most butt whopping, however Malbolgia plays possum, which then leaves here open to be impaled by her own Lance. Killing Angela and leaving Image Universe that much emptier place.

This should be added for help on Tiering of Spawn Versions.

Normal Spawn

Given world empathy, and control of Earth thanks to Man of Miracles without tapping his own power.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

Then we have spawn without Hell King powers able to create Black Holes like things into Hell.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Light Speed teleportation through Space and Dimensions on the Molecule level.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

As well Freeze Time and read the thoughts of every living thing on Earth at the same time.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

All this power is non Hell King Spawn. AKA weaker Spawn lol.

Then we cannot forget the ultimate Weapon in the Universe, the suit K-7 Leetha itself.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

3 Separate qoutes of his K7-Leetha suit, the one Simmons had before his death, becoming the most powerful weapon in the Universe by Violator and Malbolgia.

Normal Spawn alone is able to match the Dark God Urizen.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5

Urizen is a huge God of Darkness. Urizen is proven to surpass both the Hell Kings, and Seraphim of both Heaven and Hell as one of the children of MoM. He is the "lifeless, deathless, dreamless, souless" causing God of darkness. Able to drain worlds of souls entirely, and wreck the planets while existing in and out of reality in a fashion.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4

Yet Spawn with out Hell king Powers matched this God.

Hell King Spawn

So now lets discuss what it means for Spawn to be Hell King. Some Accolades of how powerful a Hell King is.

No Caption Provided

Malbolgia is stated by God to have delivered agony to billions of worlds and dimensions.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

In his Realm he is Omnipotent, but can and was casted away by Lucifer himself, who as Malbolgia stated is second to only.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

One of the boons as a Hell King is Unlimited Necro Energy. Here in this feat he not only fully restored the 9999 counter for Simmons, but teleports him to Earth after easily besting Spawn with ease, even matter shaping himself as a mountain size version of himself when Spawn approached his throne.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Here is Malbolgia stated to exist outside of Time as a Hell King.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Malbolgia again stated outside time, but this time shows himself to hold the world in his hand, gazing at all that is going on at that particular time, and manages to snatch Spawn only to drag him across the world to Texas.

No Caption Provided

Even when Malbolgia stated to not only be able to, but has already the power to scorch earth to the ground with nothing left standing. This is a greater feat in the fact Malbolgia was depowered in this state and still stated to have the power to do this looking for his missing power.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Here is Mamon, another Hell King and only slightly above Mabolgia as it turns out, making Malbolgia at this time of comics second to Mamon and Lucifer. Mamon states that if Spawn takes the crown of Hell King he can create a world with millions of Wandas on it. He also states his own Hell King power of being older than time.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

Here is Spawn actually accepting his role as Hell king, and taking over the entire "world" that is the 8th Sphere of Hell and decimating all foes with total ease with his "limitless" power he draws as Hell King. This is just him manipulating a world by his raw power as hell king like Mamon, Malbolgia, and the rest.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

This is Omega Spawn, a Spawn made with some piece of the prior Simmons Spawn, and thanks to a re emerging Malbolgia was able to claim the 8th Sphere with the stated power of a Hell King at his disposal. Omega Spawn with "power nearly rivaling Malbolgias own" not only takes the 8th Sphere, but conquers the other 7 Spheres, and stated able to split the Earth in Half.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

Omega Spawn was already shown to be able to easily lay waste to Images heroes united including Young Blood, Shadow Hawk, Dragon, Witchblade, Fortress, Invincible, Downing Spawn, and more. He is shown to easily in the future rule earth, and then reduce it to cinders after taking out all of Images heroes. Remaking the planet how he wants. All with the power "nearly rivaling" Malbogias own Hell King power.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Omega Spawn who is close to Malbolgia, and becomes King of Hell has infinite energy. No limits to this world creating or destroying energy as a Hell King.

Divine Spawn

Divine Spawn is a whole league more powerful than Hell Kings. Lets compare Lucifer alone to Hell Kings.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

Lucifer created Malbolgia, and all the other world level Hell Kings. Lucifer banishes Malbolgia with ease in Malbolgias own realm.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3Gallery image 4Gallery image 5Gallery image 6

Lucifer created 9 world size like dimensions, with 8 Hell Kings that can create more worlds or manipulate time. That is Lucifer's power.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

God also has shown the same power in the things he made or created. In this case the Ribbons God created for his Angels. In the above Angela is caught in the Argus's created Krom. Argus is a being that devoured planets already, and able to make the above Krom which is a Jupiter size vortex of Anti Matter, Anti Life, and Anti Creation forces. All three forces rolled into a multi planet engulfing vortex. Yet Angela's god powered Ribbons trump that to protect her just fine.

No Caption Provided

Twice! Protected her twice from this Space, Time, Soul eating power that engulfs planets.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

Much like Lucifer God also created seven world like heavens. One is the city Elysium that stands in its own dimension, another one of them is a endless abyss, a never ending universe in itself.

No Caption Provided

Here God is stated to have granted a Angel designated as Gods Wrath the power to destroy a star, making it go Supernova, and wiping out a solar system.

No Caption Provided

Still not convince of Gods power, then look at what is said and stated about Gods power. Mamon wish to take Gods thrown, souly to re make the Universe as he saw fit.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

Divine Spawn with his power destroys all life with a burst of energy on planet Earth. Leaving a totally dead world. A easy task.

No Caption Provided

Matches as equals with the raw awesome, and unlimited power of God and Satan. Only can die if he allowed himself to be.

God Spawn

This is Spawn who merges with Man of Miracles, or MOM for short, to remake a Universe at the height of Armageddon.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

MOM makes the Universe, and all the Gods and Satans, her children, in it to govern their respective areas of the Universe.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2Gallery image 3

In the merge with MOM, Spawn locks God and Satan away in the old Universe, and stated to re made another Universe for Earth and its free willed people.

No Caption Provided

Confirmation that God and Satan on the old earth are in a a whole another existence, while God Spawn remakes Earth, and the universe seen around it. Locking Heaven's and Hell's access to the new world for a time.

I disagree for few reasons.

1) It was never said or hinted that there was basement to hell in the entire issue. Just the main Demon lived in there.

2) Spawn would not have known that was a way to win.

3) It seems clear from the scan of the battle Spawn sent them to hell under his own will and power.

Gallery image 1Gallery image 2

As the battle showed, the Demon came through the door. Spawn uses his chains to attack to the floor, and states "Go to Hell." Then it simply happen, sucking in the house, demon, and ghosts.

I'm not sure if this is actually true, but I heard from a friend that if someone whose body wasn't made to have Necroplasm in it were to inject themselves with it in a liquid form, it would slowly and painfully kill them. Is this true? Or is my friend just bluffing? Any response would be great.

@hellsspawn: I'm pretty sure the human body wouldn't be able to handle it. It's pretty much injecting hell into your body.
