%^2 is a demon from the Overlap who makes his first appearance in Spawn Issue #19. He assists %^9 with the monitoring of the Human species and is set on killing Houdini. He advises Houdini to use the portal to return to the Overlap, knowing that it will not work - and in Houdini's confusion, he will not have a chance to use alternate means to escape, and will perish in the explosion. He along with %^9 report to The Prime and advise whether or not an atomic detonation is enough to kill a Hellspawn. %^2 is believed to have been killed when the atomic bombardment backfired into the Overlap.
