Real Name: Tzet
Search for 'Set (DC)' on Amazon


Bio:
Set is the Egyptian god of chaos, evil, war, deserts and storms. His eternal enemy is his brother Osiris, whom Set once slayed and chopped into pieces which he scattered over the world. Isis, the wife of Osiris eventually managed to gather Osiris' remains and revive him. This led to a long battle with the vengeful hawkgod Horus, the son of Osiris, over the leadership among the gods and the rule of Egypt, a battle which Horus ultimately won. Some say Set retired and now protects Ra's night-ship as the sun god travels through the underworld. He is sometimes depicted as having the head of a snake, but he is also equated with other animals such as jackals, crocodiles, hippopotamuses and pigs. In the old days, Set conspired with the demoness Blaze to have Teth-Adam (later Black Adam) draw strength from Egyptian gods instead of from the gods with whom the wizard Shazam had made a pact. Set is also known as Setekh.
