Dennis Malloy was apparently mortal human from Earth who had died and whose soul now dwelt in the Hell of Satannish. In his guise as "Cloot," Satannish empowered the departed soul of Malloy with great power and tricked him into battling Hulk by telling him that if he could defeat the Hulk he would win his freedom from Hell. Malloy battled the Hulk as the powerful villain "Ghoul." Malloy was eventually defeated by the Hulk.
Goul is referred to by various sources as a "demon," but he is different from most comic book demons in that he appears to have a clear human past on Earth. Thus, he can also be classified as a "spirit."
