I'm sure Mike Mignola drew from many influences when he created Hellboy, and I would be surprised if The Thing wasn't somewhere in the mix. These two cigar chomping straight talking monstrous guys have a lot in common. I'd love to see The Human Torch try some of his pranks on Hellboy, though - his resistance to fire would take care of Johnny's one edge! And Ben has dealt with enough minions from the Negative Zone and the center of the earth that he could take anything that The BPRD throws at him. Yup, this is a buddy team just waiting to happen.
