From the Dust Bin: Son of the Gods

I've been a big fan of the Nedor characters from the golden age of comics for some time now, so I tend to search out all the info, online scans, etc., about even the most obscure among that old stable of heroes. Here is a a dust bin look back at one their earliest short run characters:

After discovering the "Ring of Poseidon" used by his ancestor, the Greek hero Theseus, Dr. John Thesson has been endowed with superhuman strength which he has pledged to the service of humanity, as a modern day Theseus, called the Son of the Gods.

Son of the Gods ran as a feature in Exciting Comics #2-8, from May 1940 to March 1941.
