Hellboy (Ron Perlman) and his team face off against a new supernatural threat, while Professor Bruttenholm (Sir John Hurt) must investigate the possible reemergence of a vampire he had slain decades prior.
Batman, Batgirl and Robin forge an alliance with The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to fight against the Turtles' sworn enemy, The Shredder, who has teamed up with Ra's Al Ghul and The League Of Assassins.
In 1939, young Professor Bruttenholm destroyed Erzsebet Ondrushko (Kath Soucie), a female vampire who bathed in the blood of innocents to stay young. Now someone in upstate New York is trying to bring her back, and the elderly Professor Broom (Sir John Hurt) has decided to investigate it himself. He takes the top B.P.R.D. Agents, Hellboy (Ron Perlman), Liz Sherman (Selma Blair), and Abe Sapien (Doug Jones), who are more worried about his welfare than the return of any vampire. Their tune changes when they face a horde of ghosts, a phantom wolf pack, witches, harpies, a giant werewolf and Erzsebet. Hellboy ends up battling the Queen of Witches, the goddess Hecate (Cree Summer), who wants him to embrace his true destiny, a destiny that includes the destruction of mankind.Written by
After the end credits, a short self-referential teaser for the next Hellboy Animated project is played. The working title for this, subsequently cancelled, third Hellboy Animated entry, was The Phantom Claw, and it was suppose to feature The Lobster, a popular spin-off character from the Hellboy comics. In the comics, The Lobster, a.k.a. Lobster Johnson, is a violent, deadly, and mysterious vigilante, who operated during the 1930s fighting gangsters, as well as supernatural threats. In the present day Hellboy timeline, the legend of The Lobster has gained popularity, and even cult status, thanks to the writings of a retired police detective, but the reading public doesn't know that his literary character is based on a real person.
