Cthulhu's origin is typically mysterious for a creature that is older than the earth but appears he was one of the Great Old Ones, a collection of god like beings that roamed the universe.
Cthulhu settled on earth and was imprisoned beneath the oceans in his sunken city of R'lyeh. The first appearance of the Cthulhu was in the short story "The Call of Cthulhu" published in Weird Tales in 1928.
Lovecraft was enormously proud of his character and universe and encouraged others to develop it and use his characters. this was most obvious in his works as editor and mentor to other authors and was said to often suggest total re-writes of horror tales around his own characters or in their universe.
August Derleth, one of Lovecraft collaborators, went on to further the mythos after Lovecraft's passing and would collect stories into anthologies further encouraging the use of Lovecraft's creation.
Cthulhu and the Cthulhu Mythos was championed by several famous authors in the 1980's, most notably Stephen King and Brian Lumley ( Necroscope), and interest in his works remained strong with many movies, comics, novels and other media dedicated to the myths. Metallica lyricist James Hetfield is famously inspired by Lovecraft using his works as basis or song lyrics and titles.
