The Olympians are a humanoid race of extradimensional beings that hail from Olympus, a small pocket-dimension adjacent to Earth. An interdimensional nexus between Olympus and Earth can be reached via Mount Olympus in Greece. They are also known as the Gods of Olympus who have been worshiped by humans of Ancient Greece and throughout the Roman Empire from about 2000 BC to 500 AD. The worship of the gods fell with the rise of Christianity.[2]



Their origins are shrouded in myth, making it difficult to nail down the truth of all of the stories written about them.

At first in the universe there was nothing but the primordial abyss of nothingness,[4] whose sole resident was Nyx, the first of the Olympians.[5]

According to ancient myths, the primeval Earth goddess Gaea is the progenitor of the principal Olympians. She Gaea created the first to the sky god Ouranos.

Reign of Ouranos[]

Ouranus now rule of Olympus mated with Gaea producing a number of powerful offspring: the Titans, the Cyclopes and centimanes. Ouranus feared his children would usurp his power so he imprisoned the centimanes and cyclopes in Tartarus, the dark abyss of the underworld. Gaea, disgusted with the treatment of her children urged the Titans to overthrow Ouranus. The youngest Chonus agreed and led his brothers into ambushing Ouranus in his sleep. He then castrated him with a sickle given to him by Gaea. A dying Ouranus prophesized that one of Cronus' own children when overthrow him just as he had overthrown Ouranus. Cronus then took his sister Rhea as his wife and became the new ruler of the Olympus.The dying Ouranos prophesied that Cronus would be overthrown by one of his own sons.[6]

Reign of Cronus[]

Cronus (Earth-616) from Incredible Hercules Vol 1 130 001

Cronus seized Olympus, but he neglected to free the Cyclopes or the Hekatonkheires. His wife, Rhea, upon the birth of each of his own children, Cronus had the infant imprisoned in Tartarus. The offspring he sent there were Hades, Poseidon, Hera, Demeter, and Hestia. Appalled at the mistreatment of their children, Cronus's wife Rhea concealed her sixth pregnancy from him and secretly gave birth to Zeus and hid him on the island of Crete.[7]

Rhea (Titan) (Earth-616) from Incredible Hercules Vol 1 130

Zeus grew to adulthood among the shepherds of Mount Ida, Crete, and then set about taking revenge on Cronus. Zeus went down into Tartarus and freed his siblings, who had all now grown to adulthood, Zeus also freed the three one-eyed giants called Cyclopes and the three hundred-handed giants called Hekatonchieres, all six of whom Cronus had imprisoned there for fear they would help overthrow him.[7] The Cyclopes provided the young Olympians powerful weapons to defeat the the gave Poseidon a powerful "Trident", Hades the Helm of Invisibility and gave Zeus the powerful "Thunderbolts." The young Olympians and his allies fought a ten year war with the Titans which ended with Zeus's victory.[7]

Titanomachy from Incredible Hercules Vol 1 130 001

The Titans were imprisoned in Tartarus, and the Hekatonkheires were made their guards. Atlas was given the special punishment of holding up the heavens.[8]

Reign of Zeus[]

Following their final victory, the three brothers divided the world among themselves: Zeus was given Olympus, and was recognized as overlord. Poseidon was given the oceans of Earth, whereas Hades was given the Underworld, the realm of the dead. He was tasked with guarding the Titans for all eternity.

Zeus married the goddess Hera, but he engaged in many affairs with goddesses, titans, nymphs and mortal women and produced various famous offspring. By Hera, he sired Ares, Eris, Hebe, and Hephaestus. His first lover was Metis, a Titan he sired Athena.[9] A relationship with Dione, a Titan produced Aphrodite.[10] He was involved with Leto and sired the twins; Apollo and Artemis.[11] He was also involved with Maia a Nymph and sired Hermes.[6]

With the expansion of the Olympians, Nyx became an outcast within her people, harboring a disdain for the Olympians' pageantries. She attempted to find happiness by emulating the other gods bearing children, resulting in the birth of Hypnos. With the evolution of mankind, the night and the dark became correlative to the unknowns humanity feared. Mortal storytellers used their words to dispel these terrors and find comfort in heroes of myth, shaping Zeus and his children into these ever-growing heroes, causing Nyx to become their opposite. With each legion of followers the Olympians gained, both Nyx's rage and the Olympian's contempt for her grew stronger. With her mind filled with thoughts of betrayal, Nyx gave birth to the twins Apate and Dolos.

Conflict between Nyx and her children and the Olympians became inevitable. When a war broke out, Nyx and her children were defeated by the rest of the Olympians. Zeus shattered Nyx's soul into three Night Shards to depower her, and then cast her out along with her children into a prison of darkness, ensuring their confinement with a spell that sealed their fate for as long as the Sun shone upon the Earth. Out of her hatred, Nyx manifested her fourth and most powerful child, Oizys.[12]

Pre-Cataclysmic Age[]

Circa 50,000 BC, the inhabitants of Atlantis worshiped Jupiter.[13]

Some accounts depict them as being active as long ago as 20,000 BC.[citation needed] The Olympians, including at least Athena and Poseidon, were active and worshiped on Atlantis.[14] Atlas supported the Axis Mundi was located in Atlantis.[citation needed]

Hyborian Age[]

For some reasons, Alexander of Macedon and his armies were briefly sent to the Hyborian Age, 10,000 years before their era,[15] and the descendants of those who stayed there invoked "Zoos", a god unknown to Conan.[16]

Around 8000 BC, at the end of the Hyborian Age beings known as the Olympians travelled from the interdimensional realm of Olympus via a nexus located on Mount Olympus to Earth. They began interacting with the Humans of the region who began to worship them.[17]


Mount Olympus lay near Olympia, the principal city of the Eternals. Zeus and his daughter Athena met with Zuras, the leader of the Eternals, and his daughter Azura. Noticing the physical resemblance between Zeus and Zuras and between Azura and herself, Athena suggested that the Olympian gods and the Eternals form an alliance in which the Eternals would act as the gods' representatives on Earth. The other three enthusiastically agreed, and Azura took her current name of Thena to signify the sealing of the pact. However, over the years, many humans came to think of many Eternals not as the gods' representatives but as the gods themselves. This led to a growing resentment by the gods towards the Eternals, which erupted into a brief war.[citation needed]

Ancient Greece[]


The great hero Hercules was born in Thebes ancient Greece the son of Zeus, king of the Olympian gods, and Alcmena. Throughout his life he went on many adventures around greece.[18]

Quest for the Golden Fleece[]

In 1289 BC, Argonauts led by Jason gathered the mightiest warriors in Greece sailed to find the fabled Golden Fleece[19]

Twelve Labors[]

Between 1271 BC and 1268 BC Hercules was best known for his celebrated Twelve Labors, which were performed in part to prove his worthiness for immortality to Zeus.[20]

Trojan War[]

For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Trojan War page.

In 1194, BC, The Trojan War was a war between Greece (Greeks) and the City of Troy and its allies. The strife began after the Trojan prince Paris abducted Helen, wife of Menelaus of Sparta. When Menelaus demanded her return, the Trojans refused. Menelaus then persuaded his brother Agamemnon to lead an army against Troy. This lasted for many years.[21]


After the Trojan War, Odysseus made a ten year journey across the Mediterranean Sea to reach his home, Ithaca; his adventures were recounted in the epic "Odyssey".[22]

In 600 BC, on the island of Pyrrhus, Hercules battled Antaeus. This battle was witnessed by 20th Century time traveler Tommy Tyme.[23]

In 528 BC, Atlas stood over the Falgu River in India, as Siddartha Gautama attained enlightenment to become the great Buddha.[24]

Olympian-Amatsu-Kami War[]

Millenia ago there was a war between the Olympians and the Amatsu-Kami.Zeus and Amatsu-Miksaboshi separately told a single blacksmith to forge a weapon for them. The blacksmith crafted two swords: one perfect, the other flawed. The perfect was called Grasscutter and the flawed one was called Godkiller. The war went on for millennia with no clear winner.[25]

Roman Empire (146 BC–324 AD)[]

In 146 BC, the Romans conquered Macedonia and then Greece. They even adopted many of the Greek customs and began worshiping the Olympian Gods, changing many of their names in the process.[26]

1st century BC[]

In the first century BC, Atlas passed over what would become Korea.[24]


When Christianity replaced the worship of the Olympian gods in the Roman Empire, Zeus decided that the time had come for the Olympians to break most of their ties with Earth. Poseidon, however, was still allowed to watch over his Atlanteans worshipers.[27]

Olympian Isolationism[]

10th Century[]

Third Host[]

In 1000 AD, the Third Host of the Celestials occurred, during which the aliens informed they would return 1,000 years later to judge Earth's right to continue existing. Izanagi attended the Council of Godheads meeting to discuss this threat.[28] While the pantheons prepared for war, Gaea planned a peaceful solution to the problem with many goddesses.

For the next thousand years, they searched for humans representing mankind's highest ideals, to be offered to the Celestials as an offering. The goddesses placed the candidates in suspended animation, with their superhuman potential, the legacy of the First Host, awakened.[29]

18th Century[]

On September 18th, 1793, the President of the United States of America, George Washington, was at a ceremony laying the cornerstone of the capital of the new city Washington, D.C.. When he was laying the stone he looked into the sky and noticed something he had never noticed before, Atlas holding up the heavens thus revealing that the Axis Mundi was now in North America.[30]

20th Century[]

Zeus's children Hercules and Venus spent periods living among Earth mortals in recent years.[citation needed]

Modern Age[]

Assault on New Olympus[]
For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Assault on New Olympus page.
Ares: God of War[]

Taking advantage of the chaos left by the fall of Asgard and the Norse pantheon, Mikaboshi planned to extend his influence by capturing Olympus and crushing the Olympian gods. With the Olympians defeated, Mikaboshi hoped to compel all the other pantheons into surrendering. To this end, Mikaboshi laid siege to Olympus, which was very close to succeeding. Ares, still bitter about the treatment he received from the other Olympians, refused to raise a finger to help them. Desperate for his aid and wishing to goad Ares into action, Zeus had Alexander kidnapped and brought to Olympus where he was placed under the care of Achilles and his Myrmidons.[31] With Mikaboshi in utter control of the battle, Hermes went to Earth to fetch an enraged Ares in an attempt to get him to speak with Zeus, but Ares' only concern was his son. Relenting, Hermes transported them both to Achilles' stronghold where they kept Alexander, only to find the fortress destroyed and Alexander missing. While Achilles was away, Mikaboshi's forces managed to destroy the Myrmidon fortress and steal Alexander away to his own stronghold in the eastern lands. Mikaboshi slowly began to warp Alexander's mind in an attempt to turn him against his father by revealing the brutal history and patricides committed by the Greek gods. Mikaboshi hoped to turn Alex into the new god of war, one that could be used against the Greek gods and, more importantly, Ares himself.[32] Finding out his son was in the hands of Olympus' enemies, a furious Ares begrudgingly agreed to join in the fighting, but only to rescue his son. During the battle, Zeus was on the brink of death and used his remaining power to break the hold Mikaboshi had over Alexander. Alexander used the grasscutter sword against Mikaboshi and ended the battle.[33] Mikaboshi was then returned to the Japanese land of the dead defeated.

Secret Invasion[]
For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Secret Invasion page.

Athena of the Olympian Pantheon called a meeting of the Pantheons in San Francisco to assemble a team of gods from Earth, known as the "God Squad". Mikaboshi was chosen by the pantheons of the east along with Hercules, Snowbird, Tecumotzin, and Atum, the God Eater to battle and defeat the Skrull Gods Kly'bn and Sl'gur't. In route to Skrull space through the dream realm, they battled Nightmare. Mikaboshi was key in winning the battle by being able to make duplicates of himself.[34] Upon arriving in Skrull space, the God Squad had to battle their way through conquered pantheons of gods on the way to Kly'bn and Sl'gurt's thrones. Mikaboshi attacked Sl'gur't after she destroyed Atum, and both took shape of the same creatures during battle, eventually taking the form of each other. Mikaboshi killed Sl'gur't before being left by Hercules, Snowbird, and Amadeus Cho who thought Mikaboshi was killed, thus leaving Mikaboshi to take command of the conquered pantheons.[35]

Chaos War[]
For the full presentation of this event, please consult the Chaos War page.
Olympus Group[]
Olympus Group (Earth-616) from Incredible Hercules Vol 1 138 001

The Olympus Group was founded sometime in the 20th century by Zeus. Its original purpose is unknown, but since the desolation of Olympus by the undead forces of Amatsu-Mikaboshi, it has formed the base of the Olympians power on Earth.[36][8]

The first sign of the Olympus group's new direction came when Hera assumed control upon the death of Zeus. Combining his shares in the company with hers, she allied with Typhon, the Volcano Titan, and forced out Poseidon.[8]

The Olympus Group owns the Excello Soap Company, and was quietly funding Pythagoras Dupree's obsessive war with Athena until his death.[9]

During the Dark Reign, the Olympus Group was working towards "Continuum©", the ultimate goal of which was to replace the Earth with a new, better version, leaving behind all the baggage the world had created and ending the "Iron Age" of classical Greek mythology. Continuum© was opposed by Hercules and his allies, the Avengers, at the cost of Hercules' life.[37]

The Heroic Age[]

In the wake of Continuum©, Athena took control of the Olympians and returned them to Olympus. Control of the Olympus Group devolved to Amadeus Cho, ally of Hercules, who had been selected as the "Prince of Power" for the new age.[38]

The Olympus Group was strengthened by adding the assets of the late Hercules to their portfolio.[39]. Said stock includes but is not limited to: multiple wineries and breweries, a nude beach resort, an adult entertainment shop and a significant share in Stark Enterprises.[40]

The Dark Olympians[]

As part of a contest between two Elders of the Universe, the Grandmaster and the Challenger, the Earth was briefly removed from its orbit around the Sun. This caused the spell that Zeus used to imprison Nyx to break, allowing her and her children to run amok. Believing the gods, the mortals and the universe itself to have all been spoiled after an eternity of mistreatment, Nyx set out to recreate the universe to her image, returning everything to a state of empty and pure darkness.[12] Nyx's return was heralded by the sudden blackout of every source of light in the universe, including the stars themselves.[41] When Nyx and her children arrived on Olympus, they slaughtered all the gods present in the scene, including Zeus, whose mind Nyx probed for the whereabouts of the Night Shards.[5]

Nyx was ultimately defeated following the efforts of a ragtag team of heroes assembled by Voyager that included Hercules.[42] Due to their nature as fundamental myth aspects of reality, the Olympians were reincarnated and revived into their "true" forms.[42] However, several of the Olympians were reborn as savage warmongers who razed planets and took tribute in blood and treasure. To this end, the Olympians regularly rotated in and out of reality aboard the floating city of New Olympus.[43]

The Guardians of the Galaxy clashed with the Olympians when they intercepted New Olympus in an attempt to stop the gods' rampage.[43] Star-Lord managed to hijack New Olympus' dimensional rotor to phase the city out of reality, but he sacrificed himself to manually detonate the black hole bomb meant to destroy it.[44] Both Star-Lord and the Olympians survived but were stranded in the other side of reality. During their encounter, Star-Lord had become entangled with the Olympians and their power was locked away in himself and his Element Gun. Star-Lord lived unaging in the otherdimensional world of Morinus for over a hundred years until enough uses of the Element Gun freed sufficient of the Olympians' power to enable their return. Star-Lord lured the Olympians away from Morinus, using the Gateway to return to his home dimension.[45] The Olympians pursued him to reclaim their full power,[3] and confronted him and the Guardians of the Galaxy on Daedalus 5.[46] During their final battle, most of the Olympians were killed by the Guardians. Athena turned against Zeus and helped restrain him while the heroes fired black hole bullet at him, exiling both gods into a reality with no suns.[47]

Alternate Realities[]

Earth X (Earth-9997)[]

Olympians (Earth-9997) Earth X Vol 1 9

Olympians of Earth X

The Olympians are an extra-terrestrial race that were manipulated by the Celestials. Their natural evolution over the centuries has put them in the third tier of the Celestial mutation cycle. As such, their appearance, powers, and identities are defined by the belief of others. As they are believed to be the Gods of Greek mythology, they have the same special adaptations. In the guise of Olympians, these aliens have become immortals. Their body density is three times denser than normal human beings, contributing to their superhuman strength and weight.[citation needed]

The origin of the Olympians of Earth-9997 is vastly different to that of their Earth-616 counterparts. In this reality, they were an unidentified alien race that were manipulated by the Celestials. The Celestials would come to fertile worlds and impregnate it with an embryo to give birth to a new Celestial. In order to defend the planet, they would manipulate the DNA of the dominant species on the planet. The altered species would go through three stages of mutation. The first would be that each individual could trigger a mutation that is unique to the individual. The second tier would be that each member of the race would have the same exact power. The third tier would make the entire species lose all definition. In this state, a species appearance, powers, and identity would be determined by those around them. This is the state the future Olympians were in when they left their home planet. The reason for their departure is lost to the ages and remains to be revealed.[citation needed]

Powers and Abilities


The Olympian gods all possess certain superhuman physical attributes,[2]} such as:

  • Superhuman Strength: All Olympians are superhumanly strong with the average male god being able to lift about 30 tons[48][2]} and the average female goddess being able to lift about 25 tons.[48][2]}
  • Superhuman Speed: All Olympians have the potential of being able to run and move at speeds much greater than the finest human athlete.[49] For example, Hercules possesses superhuman speed, allowing him to run 111-115 mph at peak range.[49]
  • Superhuman Stamina: The musculature of all Olympians produces considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the muscles of human beings.[2]} The average Olympian male and female can exert themselves at peak capacity for about 24 hours before fatigue impairs them.
  • Superhumanly Dense Tissue: The skin, muscle, and bone tissues of all Olympians are about 3 times denser than similar human tissue,[48][2]} contributing to the Olympians' superhuman strength and weight.[48][2]}
  • Superhuman Durability: The bodies of all Olympians are known to be more resistant to physical injury than the bodies of humans.[48][2]} Olympians are capable of withstanding great impact forces, exposure to temperature and pressure extremes, falls from great heights, etc. without sustaining physical injury. Unlike most Asgardians, that are about as physically durable as Spider-Man, according to Norman Osborn.[50] The Olympians can withstand high caliber bullets. For example, Hercules was able to withstand high caliber bullets as it will only caused him to "laughs it all off" as stated by an S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.[51]
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: Despite their natural durability, it is possible for any of the Olympians to sustain injury.[48] However, if an Olympian is injured, his or her godly life force enables him or her to recover with superhuman levels of speed and efficiency.[48] As with most of their other powers, the speed and extent of these powers varies from one Olympian to another. For instance, most Olympians are unable to naturally regenerate missing limbs or organs while a small minority can, unless if they use magical assistance to do so.
  • Alleged True Immortality: Unlike Asgardians, all Olympians are true immortals.[48][2] They cease to age upon reaching adulthood and cannot die by conventional means.[48][2] Their bodies are also immune to all known Earthly terrestrial diseases and resistant to conventional injury.[48][2]
  • Energy Manipulation: In addition, many Olympian gods possess additional superhuman powers which may be magical in nature.[48] They have some potential to manipulate magical or cosmic energies for some purposes. These powers are mostly limited to changing their appearance or shape and teleporting across great distances. However, a small minority of the Olympians is capable of manipulating vast amounts of energy for a variety of purposes including teleportation, shapeshifting, matter manipulation, augmentation of their physical capabilities, erecting powerful force fields, firing powerful blasts of energy for destructive purposes, granting superhuman powers to objects and beings, etc. For example, the sea god, Neptune can create powerful tidal waves, whirlpools, seaquakes, and other water-related phenomena.[2]


All Olympians possess specific skills associated with their area of expertise. For example, as the Olympian God of War, Ares is a formidable combatant with extensive knowledge of both armed and unarmed combat where as Venus, Olympian Goddess of Love, is highly skilled in all forms of physical and sexual pleasure. Most Olympians have had some degree of armed and unarmed combat training.

  • Allspeak: Thanks to the Allspeak, they can communicate and be understood by all races.


Despite their alleged true immortality, it was revealed that they had to consume Olympian Ambrosia, the nectar of the Gods, to remain virile and deathless.[38]









125 (estimated)[citation needed]


Type of Government

Monarchy. Though led by a ruling god, the pantheon is generally controlled by the Dodekatheon, the "twelve of the gods" consisting of the primary deities of the ancient Greeks.[8]

Level of Technology


Cultural Traits

The Olympians were worshiped as gods by the people of Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, which once included much of the Mediterranean, North Africa, the Balkans, British Isles, and parts of Gaul (modern-day France).

Olympians from Thor & Hercules Encyclopaedia Mythologica Vol 1 1 001

The principal Olympians.



  • The Olympians of the Marvel Universe, even those called by their Roman names, are based on the Gods of Greek Mythology. The Romans imported the worship of these Greek Gods around 500 BC - before that, the Romans adhered to more vague deities, to which they referred as Numina, or "the Powers". According to mythologian Edith Hamilton, the Romans could never have created gods each with a distinct personality as the Greeks.


  • Olympian hair does not change since the day an Olympian has reached adulthood. Also, if an Olympian's hair is cut or damaged, it will be healed due to the Olympian's healing factor.[citation needed]
  • The Olympians' immortality has become dependent on the production of their Ambrosia, nectar of the Gods, to remain virile and untouched by the ravages of time. Without it, they will literally die of old age quickly as demonstrated when Hebe and Athena started becoming old after Vali Halfling destroyed the Promethean Forge that produced it.[52]
  • In Mythology, the term "Olympian" only referred to the ruling class of 12. Other gods were simply referred to as Theoi, the Ancient Greek word for god.
