Thomas Haden Church

In the comics, Lobster Johnson is the name of a 1930’s vigilante who dispensed a brutal form of justice on gangsters throughout New York City including burning his trademark Lobster Claw brand into their heads. After his death, his ghost became so powerful that he could become solid at will and continued to fight crime alongside his biggest fan Hellboy.
