History

Quote1 Not men, dogs. Quote2
-- Lobster Johnson


A vigilante in the 1930's, Lobster Johnson killed criminals and subsequently burned his trademark lobster claw on their foreheads as his calling card. Though the public believes that The Lobster was only the hero of pulp serials and comics, he was a real man who faced gangsters as well as paranormal threats.

He eventually outgrew petty crooks and mobsters, and moved on to killing Nazis instead, which ended in the untimely deaths of himself during a secret American commando assault on Hunte Castle in Austria to stop the Nazi space program in 1939[1], and his sidekick in pursing a Nazi saboteur who destroys a train carrying scientists and equipment for the Manhattan Project.[2]

The Lobster came back as a powerful ghost in modern times to help Hellboy in his adventures, able to possess people and even form a completely physical body.
