Grigori Efimovich Rasputin is a fictional character in the comic book series Hellboy. The character was created by Mike Mignola and John Byrne, based on the real life Russia mystic of the same name.
In 2009, Grigori Rasputin was ranked as IGN's 83rd Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.
After being assassinated by Prince Felix Yusopov on December 16th, 1916, Rasputin was revived and contacted by the Ogdru Jahad. They enlisted him as their mortal agent in the world. Soon after, Rasputin was contacted by the Nazis to begin development on an occult method for ending the war. From this, Project Ragna Rok was born. The Nazis sought to use Rasputin to defeat the Allies, but Rasputin knew this would never happen. He merely intended to use the Nazi’s resources as long as he could to achieve his own goals: to trigger the apocalypse which would jumpstart a new Eden.
Rasputin first appeared in a cradle the Beast of the Apocalypse for the Nazis during World War II. When the summoning accidentally placed the creature (Hellboy) in the hands of the Allies, Rasputin retreated to the Arctic Circle.
