Tri-Coasta: In a interview with Fighters Only in 2008, you mentioned that the remake of Superman was terrible - and that Alex Ross' portrayal is the true Superman. Now they are remaking Conan The Barbarian, supposedly in the vision of Frank Frazetta. Your thoughts?

Hellboy: My friend and sparring partner Raino Dokken is a lexicon in the DC and Marvel universe(he wore a Superman costume when he was 15 years old looking for people to save), he knows everything on the superhero topic. He introduced me to the Superman album by Alex Ross and I felt like a hyperactive kid on Christmas when reading it.

A few months later the remake of the Superman movie came to the cinemas here in Norway. I was convinced that the producers of this remake had also read Alex Ross' Superman album, and that they just had to turn that incredible series into a movie. So I drove my car downtown and bought some popcorn - five minutes into the movie I was already crying blood, Superman was an anorexic boyband member with hair gel and make up! We want our heroes back! I think about this a lot, future generations having Dana White and Lady Gaga as role models...

I have heard the rumors of the film being made in the vision of Frank Frazetta, a great way to honor the memory of a divine painter. They better make it right this time.

Tri-Coasta: You have mentioned several times in the past that you have your beliefs(tied to Christ), but do not practice religion. Where did your spiritual connection to Christ come from?

Hellboy: I believe in the simple teachings of Christ - how I am spiritually connected I don`t know, where does the divine connect if not from the inside?  I do not need a priest between that. I`m very interested in the Old Testament and Sumerian history.

---

Tri-Coasta: Your prodigy, Simeon Thoresen, has racked up a stellar 14-2-1 record in MMA since 2006. With the lack of events in Japan right now, can we expect to see him in a US-based organization anytime soon?

Hellboy: Simeon Thoresen is not part of my team anymore, he fights for T.S.G.(team sure grip) based in England, but he still trains at the gym and I help him as much as I can. He is a very good fighter and I`m sure he will do very well if he goes to the US to fight.

---

Tri-Coasta: On a similar topic, your longtime friend and training partner - Jon Olav Einemo - was recently signed to the UFC. Are you surprised that it took so long for him to be recognized by the MMA community?

Hellboy: Einemo is living part time in Holland and Thailand training with Sergei Kharitonov and Golden Glory, preparing for his UFC debut against Shane Carwin. Einemo is an extremely good grappler, and now he has the right sparring partners for his standup. I believe he will go as far as he wants in MMA and it won't surprise me a bit.

May he paint the octagon red with the blood of his victims.

---

Tri-Coasta: MMA fans around the world are still talking about your fight with Eddie Alvarez - which most consider to be one of the greatest fights of the decade. Has there been any word from your management team(at TNA Sports) about a rematch with Eddie Alvarez in Bellator?

Hellboy: A rematch could be possible in the future, but right now I'm competing at 63 kg to 66 kg in MMA. I follow Bellator, they sometimes show their events on TV in Norway. It looks like a good show.

---

Tri-Coasta: The rumors surrounding the JMMA scene have been very depressing. Is there anything fans in the US can do to help?

Hellboy: JMMA will rise again, MMA fans around the world should look at Dream FC, Pancrase, Shooto, Jewels and of course the old Pride FC events.

---

Tri-Coasta: I have been searching to buy the Hellboy Hansen or Team Hellboy shirts for a very long time. Where can your fans buy your merchandise?

Hellboy: At http://teamhellboy.com you can get some t-shirts - I'm going to make some new designs soon, I have a drawing ready.
