    Let’s see: a mystical demon who’s fought countless battles against Demons, Gods, spirits, the supernatural in general and the occasional human VS… a dude with a wrench, you really have to ask?

    You do know that Goon has fought more than his share of Demons, Zombies, Monsters, and general super natural beings right? Goon is hardly just a man with a wrench.

    I still think that Hellboy might have the upper hand with the whole right hand of doom and the heavy artillery, but Goon has been known to use his smarts to even the playing field when he has to.

    Yeah, I checked the Goon in wiki after my comment, dumb move on my part.
    Still, Hellboy for the win.

    P.S.- How many actually know who the Goon is? I doubt I’m the only with little or no clue.

    Hellboy. Rico not alone, he’s been refenced to me, but I have yet to read any stories.

      Check out the Podcast – We had never read The Goon either, yet we’ve all fallen in love with it.
