First appearance


The Demon Malebolgia was one of the most powerful rulers of Hell, and reigned unchallenged in the 8th circle of Hell for 70,000 years. He struck a deal with Albert Simmons to make him the newest Hellspawn.[1] He was only one of Hell's many rulers forming an army in its forthcoming Armageddon war against Heaven and God.

Malebolgia was responsible for the creation of the newest Hellspawn, Al Simmons. Malebolgia was respected and feared as the most powerful of the rulers, and thus the de-facto grand master of Hell. His powers include energy projection, matter manipulation, enormous physical strength, recuperative abilities, and abilities to morph and induce hallucinations. His standing in Hell's hierarchy gives him nigh-unlimited power while in the 8th Sphere. His mastery of Necroplasm gives him the exclusive ability to create Hellspawn and during his rule, he created an army larger than anything Heaven could handle.


Malebolgia saw promise in a military and tactical assassin, Al Simmons. He sent Al back to Earth as the new Spawn so that he could see his wife, Wanda Blake, once more. However he twisted the deal, along with of his words, to constantly make Al's life a living hell. Malebolgia's plan was to make Al the newest Hellspawn, an officer in training to serve in the army of Hell when it waged war against Heaven in the mighty Armageddon battle.[2]

Malebolgia's main officer was Violator, who was sent to train Al to use his hate and anger to strengthen Hell's army with more soldiers. At first, all Hellspawn are confused and quickly and irresponsibly use their powers to further kill their foe. However, Spawn found an ally in Cogliostro, a previous Hellspawn, who trained him to go against Malebolgia's wishes.[3]

Malebolgia continue to watch the young Hellspawn via his blood-pool tracking pool and laughed with ever new slip of his power and murder Spawn committed.[4]
