Welcome back, myth lovers! Today I’m going to share yet another mythological figure who plays an important role in The Petros Chronicles. In fact, today’s featured character is the arch-villain of the series.
Hermes would fit right in with modern Marvel and DC comic book characters. Not only is he charmingly devilish like Iron Man, clever like the Joker, able to soar like Superman and fly between realms like Thor, he wears a cap which grants him invisibility, and a golden staff which, in my series, is capable of just about anything, such as conjuring strong illusions, turning water to glass, and reeling the moon in like a fish.
In this second installment of my Origins of Petros series, I’m going to introduce you to one of the first mythological settings in Age of the Ashers, the one in which we meet our reluctant villain, Orpheus.
