Prometheus's Wall


Zounds, it's good to be free. Love that Heracles.

No problem, buddy. You should swing up to Olympus some time. We can go clubbing.

Oh, I'm not much of a clubber.

Come on, it'll be fun. We'll throw back a few gallons of wine.

Mmmm, not so sure.

What, I'm not cool enough for you now?

He's afraid of running into me, son.

I was never afraid of you.

Yeah, which was your problem.

Dad... Prometheus... come on, we worked all this out.

Looking forward to brunch with Epimetheus and Pandora today.


Wait, that's today?

Yeah, I'm on my way.


Sorry, I forgot.

You forget a lot of things.


What's that supposed to mean?

Like when I told you not to take any gifts from Zeus. When Hermes showed up with Pandora looking all sexy you totally forgot and took her as a wife along with her jar full of evil.


Yeah, that was kind of my bad. But I'm the god of afterthought. I can't really help how forgetful I am.

That's a pretty useless thing to be the god of—just saying.

No one's talking to you, you stooge of Zeus.


Oh, sometimes I feel so useless.

Ah, sorry bro, I didn't mean to make you feel bad. Pandora's a great gal. I'm glad you two are happy.

Hope you're enjoying freedom, you stinking traitor.

Brother, those sort of inflammatory comments are unwelcome on my wall.

I just don't know how you sleep at night knowing you betrayed all the other Titans by helping Zeus.

Kronos was eating his kids—he had to go down.

You are a traitor through and through. You even betrayed Zeus by giving humans fire.

They needed fire. It was the right thing to do.

Why don't you come help me hold up the sky for a while. That'd be the right thing to do.

Don't trust him, buddy! He tried that trick on me. He'll stick you with it forever.
