That rascal Hephaestus

Hephaestus, the gods' smith (and a god himself), got thrown off Mt Olympus at some point in his early years. I can't remember what made Zeus do it, but the result was Hephaestus' lameness. In this drawing, I imagine him still fairly young, not terribly "pumped up" yet.

Later, of course, Hephaestus was married to Aphrodite who considered the smith-god ugly and preferred malingering with Ares. Hephaestus entrapped them, in flagrante. . ., in a net. I've got Ares in the net at this point, but Aphrodite will get her due soon enough.

And this one, yet another face, is called "'50s" (as in the decade).
