OH NO HE IS TRANSFORMING
HIS POWER LEVEL IS OVER 9000
Ah, scientists… so concentrated on Higgs Boson that they ignore even the basis of classical culture!!!
since when was hermes the basis of anything? he pretty much just showed up whenever it was convenient to have a dude with winged sandals hanging around. no wonder he was a trickster. i’d desperately be trying to get attention too if my entire career could be outsourced to a flying cow… or email.
Why doesn’t Roy speak up? He already identified him last strip. And if Hermes is the protector of travelers, then he might be willing to help them, now that the prank’s over.
The thing is a Greek God cannot reveal their true selves to a mortal or a their glory will melt the mortal like the Nazis at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Also he may be afraid because Hermes was also the Grim Reaper of Greek Mythology. (The fates decided it was your time and ended your life, the Hermes brought your soul to the ferryman who took you across the River Styx where Hades ruled.)
Over 9000? Sorry, not a big Dragonball fan, although Chainsawsuit had a good parody of it a few months back.
I don’t remember reading this one in Ovid…
Since when is Hermes a Prankster??? And where’s his turtle and rooster??? That’s a weird looking Cadecus…*reads wikipedia* Oh… I guess he’s a trickster now….strange… That’s not mentioned in any of the mythology books I have…
I find it difficult to believe that someone named Milo Mamalakis wouldn’t know who Hermes is!
@johnny discrete: Hey, at least he’s got his own planet! That’s more than Apollo or Athena (or even Hades) can say, now isn’t it?
@macsnafu: Roy and Milo have both been struck speechless. It’s not every day you come into contact with a god!
@Murchadh: Re: the melting thing: The Greek gods have been known to exaggerate on occasion. At worst, gazing upon the true form of a god will make you uncomfortably warm.
@Joe: He was planning to put it in the sequel, Metamophoses 2: Metamorphose Harder.
@Dierna: He doesn’t truck his turtle and rooster around with him all the time. That’d just be cumbersome!
@Pops: Of course Milo knows who Hermes is! Jen is the one who’s confused. Milo’s just dumbstruck at the notion of seeing a Greek god face-to-face.
1) Hades did have a planet until Scientists said Pluto wasn’t a planet.
3)It isn’t an exaggeration because when Zeus was with a nymph Hera told her that she had to insist that Zeus reveal his true form in order to prove he was a God. She agreed and demanded it and since Zeus had promised to do anything to prove his divinity to her, he revealed himself and she melted.
1) True dat. Damn astronomers, ruining everyone’s fun.
2) Whoops, actually I think Venus == Aphrodite (and Athena == Minerva).
3) Fair enough. I guess I was just saying that in the context of our comic we may not be following everything the myths say exactly to the letter.
Well um.. in BSG Athena was the name of one of the planets.. Minerva and Athena are the name of asteroids. Athena is also a species of Owl.
@greg good point. And you’re right about it being Aphrodite. I get confused easily. PLus I mean there is the whole Universe law thingy. So time traveling comics can do whatever they freaking want.
psychopomp? i want to be psychopomp!
