Bernie is a character who makes and appearance in issue #16 of the Spawn comic books. He along with one of his friends, are going around the alleyways of New York City threatening to kill bums by burning them alive with a jerry-can of gasoline and a Zippo. As they are in the midst of intimidating one of the homeless men, Spawn arrives to teach them a lesson. While using none of his powers, Spawn still makes easy work of the two boys, breaking Bernie’s hand in the process. Nothing is heard from of these two afterwards, but it is assumed that their behaviour has changed for the better.
