Powers and Abilities

Zelus moves at superhuman speeds, fast enough that he can become practically invisible. His skin is a gold coloured, metallic shell, which provides him some level of protection.


History

Zelus, classical Greek for Zeal, is partners with Bia and Kratos. In classical mythology they, along with Nike, are supposed to be the children of the Titans. Whether they are the children of the Titans, or have just taken their names, is unknown.

Sheriff Molly Savoy recognised them as the beings that haunted her childhood dreams, 30 years previously, and they also recognised her. They work for an unidentified individual, who brainwashes other metahumans to become the new Nike, and lead the team.

They first came into conflict with Sovereign Seven when Cascade was transformed into Nike and led them in trying to open an enormous set of doors in another dimension. Sovereign Seven overcame them and freed Cascade, but lost track of them when a large dam burst, flooding the area.

They again clashed when Sovereign Seven tried to free Power Girl, who had been transformed into Nike. When she was freed, Zelus, Bia and Kratos disappeared.


Personality

Impulsive and sadistic, Zelus enjoys mocking others’ slowness, and is perfectly happy to bully those around him, apart from his team-mates, to whom he is loyal.


Quotes

“I am Zelus. The embodiment of zeal. There is nothing I won’t do to win.”

“Rather play things hard, hey ? Fine by me. Let you keep your eyes, though. To show your head your headless body, once I’ve ripped the two apart !”
