It's shaping up to be a big year for summer superhero movies, and I for one am quite excited. I was talking today with my special lady friend about how we're itching to go see Thor, and I got to thinking about the mythological roots of a lot of our comic book heroes. Thor's an obvious one; but there's guys like The Flash, The Hulk, The Spectre, and even The Deadpool who I believe are the spiritual great-great-grandchildren of the myths and legends from the earliest days of civilization, characters that crawled out of the same swamp of the collective unconscious as did the likes of Anansi, Gilgamesh, Hermes, and Lou Ferrigno.

So with all that in mind, with this contest I'd like to see entries that reimagine, reinvent, or otherwise analyze and deconstruct characters from mythology. Gods, goddesses, monsters, tricksters, folk heroes--what have you, they're all up for grabs.

And since I stole the name of this contest from a TV Tropes article, any use of thats site's distinctive lingo will earn you instant bonus points.

I'll give this thing a leisurely two weeks before I judge.

It was such a waste of everyone’s time and money that even the Tokyo stadium’s **** robots apologized– something they were programmed specifically never to do.

Years ago, I had the idea to write an entire series on Stripcreator about the Twelve Labors of Hercules.  It would have been dozens of comics long.  I was writing them all out on paper first, and I had most of the Labors done.  And then I lost the folder I was keeping them in.  Which also contained several important financial documents.

I never found the enthusiasm to rewrite the whole series from scratch.  But it's probably just as well, because I think this was the funniest joke of the lot.

Also: is it a coincidence that the number of this contest matches the date of the fall of the Roman empire?

And... CUT!

Good job, everyone, good job. Now, before we hit the showers, I have to announce the winner.

It's customary for the judge to do a big run-down of all the also rans before naming the winner, but I really suck at that, so I'm just going to let you all know that

evil_d

wins. It was a good spoof and a goof of Johnny Appleseed (I think; secret is I really know jack-squat about mithallogee and understood only 1/24th of all the entries.)

Good luck, evil, and godspeed.

Now who wants to join me in a very heterosexual towel fight?

Awesome. I'd like to thank the ancient Greeks for telling each other ridiculous stories, and ArtemisStrong for waiting to judge the contest until I got off my ass and entered it.

New contest shortly.
