The Abandoned An’ Forsaked – Prometheus is a Pushover?

All throughout December, we will be examining comic book stories and ideas that were not only abandoned, but also had the stories/plots specifically “overturned” by a later writer (as if they were a legal precedent). Click here for an archive of all the previous editions of The Abandoned An’ Forsaked. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com if you have any suggestions for future editions of this feature.

Today we look at the redemption of Prometheus’ bad ass stature…

Prometheus was introduced in JLA as basically the villain equivalent to Batman. Tough enough to take on the entire JLA…



Then he was getting beat up all over the place, like when Green Arrow out a hurting on him…





Hush saves him, and Prometheus does not come off so well…


Prometheus then basically becomes Hush’s henchman…



In the 2009 Prometheus one-shot by Sterling Gates, we discover that that was not the same Prometheus who fought the JLA…


He captures the imposter and we learn the connection between the two…



Prometheus went on to challenge the Justice League once again and caused some major damage. Green Arrow, oddly enough, was once again the person who took him out, but this time not nearly as easily.
