Amazing! But no love for Hal, or John? (Or even Jonn?)

Ok, let's see who we've got here:

Hermes = The Flash

Zeus = Superman

Hades = Batman

Poseidon = Aquaman

Athena = Wonder Woman

Clearly none of the Lanterns could be represented in the design because the shirt is printed in yellow.

Are you sure that Batman isn't Ares?

Yeah, that's entirely likely, the shield is quite war-like isn't it? I guess the helmet seemed skullish enough to me to suggest Hades rather than Ares.

I'm totally digging the amalgamation.

I feel that Captain Marvel would be a better Zeus. I mean the guy has Zeus' bolts after all.

It helps that wikipedia urls are so predictable.

I had the same thought. When I first saw it I assumed it was Ares. Hades never gets any love.

Comic book geek goes Greek. I like.

I'm guessing these are all characters from one "universe" since no one is getting horrified over DC/Marvel crossovers. Hmm, yeah, I think these are all DC.

ETA: found MMI, also by Steven Lefcourt. http://shirt.woot.com/offers/modern-myths hint, it was more video gamey. Got a theme going here, eh Steve.

Josh Whedon is complaining.

This is pretty sweet. I love the classical look and will likely pick on up tomorrow after I get paid.

Thanks all!

Originally, Batman was going to be a straight up Hades amalgamation. There was some fun iconographic interplay with Hades bi-dent being the source of Batman's cowl "horns" because when Hades sat at his throne he kept the bi-dent behind him and that created the image of 2 horns on his head.

I couldn't make the idea work on its own, so he's an amalgam of both Hades and Ares, using some vague references to imagery of sculptures of both.

Perhaps a Modern Myths III will happen some day, assuming I have a good idea for it. I don't want to let Joss down...although, it would be kinda weird to make Thor a Greek god, haha.

Great design work, but you lost me when you went DC over Marvel...

I prefer Marvel, but DC's characters have always been more on the godly side of things. There's room for both, in my life.

As a Latin geek I'm swooning over the descriptive text. I have actually translated the Aeneid so I'm reading it in scansion! Brilliant work to whoever wrote it!

Had to explain it to my husband. To each his own, I guess.

This is one of those rare situations where if someone were to say 'epic', I wouldn't feel the need to slap them in the face.

I absolutely love that Superman's "S" is a capital sigma. It's all in the details!
