Origin

On an archaeological dig on Crete with Dr. Craig, Doctor John Thesson finds the ring of Poseidon in the maze of Midas. However, Procustous, a wealthy man who lived nearby kills two Americans trying to end the excavation. Thesson stopped Procustous and retrieved the ring of Poseidon.

Thesson was revealed to be the reincarnation of Theseus, slayer of the Minotaur and the last son of the gods. The ring gave Thesson super powers such as super strength, leaping great distances, and super human endurance. John Thesson is permanently awarded the ring and uses it to fight crime as Thesson, Son of the gods.

Notes

  • The Nedor comics were renewed by Popular Library, which was eventually bought out by Fawcett Books. When Fawcett went out of business, Popular Library was sold to Warner Bros. A number of different publishers, however, are currently/have been using these characters without any lawsuits from Warner Bros., so any action over them is (probably) unlikely. They are still, however, "use at your own risk" characters.
