Hellboy himself recognizes that he’s conditionally accepted by society as long as he works to protect its citizens. This switch in categorization happens to the viewer over the course of the Hellboy movie. In the beginning, you notice his outward differentness — he’s a “them.” But halfway through the movie, you realize that he’s just a decent guy trying to save the planet from evil — suddenly he becomes an “us”!
