™ and ©1998 Joe Pruett
Joe Pruett delivered this interesting take on the Prometheus myth in 1998. Prometheus was the titan who brought fire to mankind. As punishment, he was chained to a rock where birds would arrive daily to tear out his innards. At night, however, they would grow back and the process would begin again.
In this tale, Prometheus had escaped his own bondage by agreeing to tell Zeus about the son who would someday become his rival. He never mentioned, however, that there was a daughter, too. Now Prometheus (appearing for all the world like a muscular biker) must seek out these teenagers in our world and save them before Zeus and the various gods of Olympus can prevent them from fulfilling their destiny.
