Quote:The comic also gave us Gilgamesh ("the Forgotten Hero") as Herc's freeloading and, I think, clinically depressed house guest. Presumably Gilgamesh will rise up in upcoming issues to fight at Herc's side. The two of them will be quite formidable together.
I was unspeakably pissed at Roy Thomas when he suggested that a lot of Hercules' legendary feats were actually performed by Gilgamesh. Nice to see their connection acknowledged but Herc still getting his due.
