Jason Broderick Wynn is the central antagonist of the Spawn series. He is a crime lord and businessman that serves as the director of United States Security Group, an agency affiliated with the United States government.
He is known for being the one that was indirectly responsible for the death of Albert Simmons, which in turn led to him becoming the Hellspawn known as Spawn. He was also the first host of the Redeemer.
BiographyAccording to Wynn, 23 years ago, he was once a naive government employee who just wanted to keep his country safe. But one day, he got involved with Heaven's agents tried to use him to secure portals from Heaven by using American resources and lying against the Soviet Union before building them a supersoldier against Hell's army. After finding out both Heaven and Hell were both controlling and corrupting human souls, he became malicious and egotistical to secure enough power base for himself for protection from the armageddon.
Wynn made a deal with Malebolgia in which he traded the soul of Simmons in exchange for psychoplasm. The sample that he obtained was combined with Simmons' memories and transformed into a training ground made up of building of his past known as "Simonsville". Simonsville was destroyed by Spawn and Wynn was defeated, having his memory wiped and was returned to Earth two days after his disappearance.
After this, he would work on and off with the Clown to bring about the end of Spawn. When Mammon restored the Clown's existence on Earth and gave him a pass to take a new body, he chose Wynn and became a dominant role in his psyche. He then went on a killing spree in his spare time, murdering women who resembled Wanda Blake. Wynn was caught in the act, and in the Clown's face paint at a construction site. Spawn then saved the women and defeated Wynn. The Clown then let Wynn let go of the steel girder he was clinging to and fall to his death, allowing him to take full possession of his body.
Wynn then reappeared in issues 167-168, having been separated from the Clown after the white light event, but his hands have stayed permanently red. Throughout his career, Wynn has gathered incriminating information/evidence on various governments and organizations, providing him a bargaining chip to bring him back to his authority if lost and preventing him from being terminated. However, Spawn revealed that he found and destroyed all the evidence Wynn had found, allowing Wynn to be vulnerable to those who want him dead. Spawn then leaves Wynn, seeing him as a "dead man". In the later issues Jim Downing eventually kills Wynn for good.
Jason is a tall man with an intense, dark, and menacing features. He has slick black hair and a goatee chinstrap beard that accentuates his malicious appearance. He also always seen wearing a business suit in most of his appearances.
Jason is a ruthless, cruel, cunning, sadistic, but intelligent mastermind. He is a political genius as he sees himself as the most powerful man on the planet through his treacherous and violent nature, also making him an egotist. Wynn will do whatever it takes to increase his personal power, even going as far as to use the child killer Billy Kincaid to go after and kill Amanda Jennings, the daughter of Senator Jennings, who was threatening his position shown in a flashback of issue #5. Wynn is also shown to be excellent on martial arts and weapons expert.
