“When I first created Spawn as a kid, it was more of a sci-fi story. To me…sci-fi means space. Space is cold. Cold is BLUE,” McFarlane revealed. “Many years later, when I pulled out my portfolio, I decided to make Spawn from the pit of HELL!”

McFarlane said he had to change the character’s design after he brought him back as a character from Hell.

“Hell is HOT so I played around with the colors and ended up with the Spawn you see today,” he said. “Imaging what the story would’ve looked like if Spawn looked to the stars or CAME from them….”

The antihero character made his first appearance in Spawn #1 (May 1992) comic book published by Image Comics. Michael Jai White portrayed the fictional character in 1997 live-action film. An animated series produced by HBO aired from 1997 until 1999. The character was ranked 60th on Wizard magazine’s list of the Top 200 Comic Book Characters of All Time, 50th on Empire magazine’s list of The 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters and 36th on IGN’s 2011 Top 100 Comic Book Heroes.

Image Comics is releasing an entire first issue of Spawn to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the studio.
