OLYMPIAN SUPERHEROES

Easily the most famous of the old gods would be the Gods of Olympus. In documentaries I have watched regarding the history and evolution of the superhero genre, I discovered that the origin of the superhero tied in to Greek Mythology. Some scholars argued that Superman is the modern version of Zeus while Batman is the modern version of Hades. Wonder Woman was a product of the Greek Gods because she was made to be as beautiful and loving as Aphrodite, wise and intelligent as Athena, strong and durable as Hercules, and fast and agile as Mercury. I am thinking of keeping with this tradition in my new superhero series with the characters naming themselves after the Gods of Olympus and the Primordial Titans.
