The full moon illuminates the scum of Spawn Alley as a
predator pimp beats on one of his hookers. Spawn watches the incident and
remembers his own violent past. He remembers when Wanda found his guns and all
he could think to do was strike her. Has he always been a creature of violence?
Did Malebolgia choose correctly when he changed him to a Hellspawn?
The pimp attempts to seduce a lost innocent named Lilly. But the beautiful
girl's innocence is as tenuous as her claws are sharp. In a blink, the pimps
men are mangled, snapped and broken and their veins drained of blood. Again,
Spawn is blamed. Twitch, who has begun to come around, knows Spawn has nothing
to do with these murders. The bullet to his head has erased Twitches memory,
but now the cop is having strange visions. Visions that tell him nothing human
killed the pimps lackeys.
Cogliostro learns of Spawns disguised seduction of Wanda and curses the
Hellspawn for his lack of honor. Spawn is quick to point out that Cog was a
Hellspawn and the innocent blood of women and children is on Cogliostro's hands
too. If the old man can bring Spawn back to humanity, then Cog will be able to
rest. Spawn is less than impressed, and even less so when the old man tells him
that Lisa Wu is actually a bounty hunter named Jade, and her target is his
Jade confronts Lilly and tells her that she has no right to hunt the Hellspawn,
but Lilly has some news for the hunter. The masters made a deal with the
bloodsucking Lilly. Kill Spawn and be redeemed. Lilly finds Spawn in the church
and there they have a vicious battle; fallen soul against fallen soul. In the
end Spawn wins, but not without sustaining a near fatal wound. Jade appears and
she knows that she could take Spawn's head easily, but she is honorable and
lets him go for the time being. She senses he is different from other
Hellspawn's. Their battle can wait. When she kills him she wants him strong.
