Dionysus (Marvel) (01 - Olympian)
Real Name: Dionysus
Search for 'Dionysus (Marvel) (01 - Olympian)' on Amazon

Powers:
Dionysus possesses the conventional powers of the Olympian gods including superhuman strength (Class 30), vitality, longevity and resistance to injury. In ancient times, Dionysus possessed strength that rivaled that of his half-brother, the war-god Ares and could lift (press) 70 tons. He has certain magical abilities which allow him to change his form or that of another person or object, to appear as someone else, an animal, or an object. He also has the power to control the growth of vines. Dionysus is capable of teleporting himself, other persons, and objects between dimensions such as from Olympus to Earth and vice versa. Dionysus' abilities waned over the centuries as he did not continuously practice them but instead pursued more hedonistic interests. Dionysus also knows how to place persons under a spell that makes them lose all rational thought and act as if in a maddened, berserker state through the use of certain potions that his victims ingest. He used his knowledge of this to once control the She-Hulk and make her attack her teammates in the Avengers.

Bio:
Dionysus is the son of Zeus. He is also known as Bacchus. He is the Greco-Roman God of wine, revelry, and theatre.

Despondent at a former defeat at the hands of She-Hulk, Dionysus became suicidal. He came to believe the Olympian race was dying, so he stole a nuclear warhead from earth to help it along. Hercules attempts to talk him out of it, but Dionysus crafts a servant called 'Butcher T. Washington' to deal with him. Hercules was almost slain but at the last moment, Dionysus regains his sanity, saves Hercules and returns the warhead to Earth. He places himself at Zeus' mercy. As punishment, he is stripped of his memories and abilities. He ends up on Earth, as Dion, the bartender for 'Dion's Bar'.
