People be like, “I don’t like Superman because I can’t relate to him.” Then they turn around and start gushing over the emotionally crippled billionaire genius/olympic-level athlete whose only functional interpersonal relationship is with his paid butler/valet.
For Hellboy: The Wild Hunt #7 Cover Line Art. Mike Mignola. 2009.
Mignola: This is Hellboy: The Giant Religious Painting. I thought this was a great example of how huge this book can be, should be. The threat the promise of what this character is which is so far removed from anything I ever thought he was gonna be. And I thought it worked. Again, it’s something I don’t do very often — the big, glowing sky thing — but yeah, it worked. I don’t know that I would do a piece like this now. it’s very much of its time. It nailed that version of what this character may well be one of these days.
It’s not meant to be Godzilla stomping on a town. There’s an awe and majesty to what Hellboy is, will be. Whether it’s the god of destruction or something else, there’s a real godlike quality I wanted as opposed to just a giant monster stomping the town quality.

No fans of Star Wars don’t jump to conclusions the OP is correct, in Unchained the USA has imperial walkers and black hole guns, can you imagine what the Emperor could have done with those, he had to make do with lasers.
