The origin of Super Villains: Prometheus


Prometheus is a name used by multiple fictional supervillains appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Grant Morrison (writer) and Arnie Jorgensen (pencils), the most recognized version made his first appearance in New Year's Evil: Prometheus (February 1998). Commonly an adversary of the Justice League, Prometheus would serve as an enemy of the superheroes Batman, Green Arrow and Midnighter.[1]

In 2009, Prometheus was ranked as IGN's 80th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.[2] On The CW's live-action Arrowverse TV series Arrow, the character was portrayed by Josh Segarra and voiced by Michael Dorn.

Publication history
Curt Calhoun debuted in Blue Beetle #3 (Aug. 1986). A new version of Prometheus debuted in New Year's Evil: Prometheus (Feb. 1998) and returned in JLA #16–17 (March–April 1998) and #36–41 (Dec. 1999 – May 2000). The character was then impersonated for a time by Chad Graham, but returned in Faces of Evil: Prometheus #1 (March 2009). Prometheus starred as the villain in the limited series Justice League: Cry for Justice #1–7 (Sept. 2009 – April 2010), and was killed at the conclusion of the story.

Writer Mike Conroy noted "...with his technologically advanced armor and weapons arsenal, which can download the fighting techniques of the world's top martial artists...he (Prometheus) turned out to be a formidable foe, as the JLA found out".[3]
