Background

  • Marital Status: Single.
  • Known Relatives: Achilles II, Agamemnon III, Atalanta, Cassiopea, Delphi, Hector II, Paris, Perseus, Prometehus II, Ulysses III (exact relationships not specified).
  • Group Affiliation: Pantheon.
  • Base Of Operations: The Mount (southwestern US).
  • Height: 8’ Weight: Unrevealed.
  • Eyes: Blue Hair: Brown


Powers and Abilities

Ajax, like the other Pantheon members, is a relative of Agamemnon. He thus enjoys fast healing abilities, an extended life span, and an unique superhuman power.

In his case, he’s monstrously large and strong. Ajax has been known to run through an armour company, ploughing tanks aside as if they were toys. The angrier he is, the stronger he is. Ajax is very emotional and unpredictable, so his strength increases in bursts.

Ajax of the Pantheon


History

The Pantheon, it is a mysterious, secret community living in a hidden base in the southwestern US. They are basically benevolent and intervene all over the world, but their exact goals were never explained AFAIK (at least back when these notes were taken).


Description

Ajax is 8’ tall in battlesuit, and must weight over a ton. His shoulders, arms and chest are inhumanly massive. His legs, while very powerful, are comparatively short, and his head small. Ajax wears a huge suit of golden armor.

The armour includes a face protection that can be raised or lowered, like a medieval helm’s.


Personality

Ajax is fanatically devoted to Atalanta, and follows her every instruction like a dog. He also consider the Hulk to be his friend, because Atalanta told him so. He’s real dumb, too, and speaks very poor English.

Ajax probably got his name from the fact that the historical Ajax, the strongest Greek warrior, was also a giant. But even if the original Ajax was coarse and slow-spoken, he was certainly smarter than his successor.


Quotes

“You hurd Adlanna ! I’ll gedyoo !”


DC Universe History

Just uses the Pantheon as is, with the Martian Manhunter playing the role of the Hulk. The idea is to confront the philosophical/pacifist aspect of J‘onn and the enforcement-of-peace-through-firepower aspect of the Pantheon, to highlight the nobility of the Martian.
