    Alternatively, what about a chosen of Athena?

    I could see Alfred as a Scion of Athena, quiet wisdom and care strengthening the warrior. Hestia or Danu, quiet nurturers with shrewd plans, also works. Robin could be a scion of several more lighthearted but heroic figures. Hermes, Anubis, and Brigid make sense to me. That's Dick Grayson, Timothy Drake is clearly a scion of either Athena or Odin, I lean to the latter. Barbara Gorden is also a scion of Athena. Batwoman strikes me as a Scion of Artemis.

          The Doom Patrol strike me as Titan spawn that broke away from the Titans.

          The Ray is clearly a Scion of Apollo.

          Uncle Sam strikes me as a Scion of Quetzelcoutl.

          Black Condor is clearly a scion of the Thunderbird.

            Joker's obviously a Scion of Loki, no question about it. Heck, Loki's final duel between him and Heimdall even sounds like something you might expect Joker and Batman to end up doing at some point.


            Beastboy (aka Changeling), Swamp Thing and Solomun Grundy are all Chosen of the Titans, with a connection to the purviews of Animal, Fertility and Death respectively. These Titanic forces manifesting themselves in the form of The Red, The Green, and The Gray.

              Ted Knight is probably a scion of Hermes. That would mean his son Jack is a grandkid scion. I base this on Hermes being conected to the stars, transformation, and travel. All of these fit the first Starman.

                The Sandman is a scion of Morpheus.

                  The Sandman is a Mantle of Morpheus. Or vice versa.

                    Actually, Sandman would be more of a Titan Avatar.

                    The Endless don't simply rule over the forces of Destiny, Destruction, Delirium, Dream, Death, Desire, and Despair, they are the literal embodiment of those forces. The same way 1E's Greater Titans were the embodiment of their respective forces.

                      I meant the Wesley Dodds one. (Vertigo's Sandman/Sandman Mystery Theater one shot was delightfully weird.)

                        Apologies.

                          No worries.

                          I'm honestly not even sure how something like the Endless would fit into Scion. Incidentally, there's a rather fun riff on them in the recent Black Hammer series from Dark Horse.

                          I wonder if anyone has tried writing up Jack Kirby's Fourth World characters as a Pantheon.

                            They'd probably fit in better with 2nd edition than 1st. They aren't actively trying to fight the pantheons, as described in the Titanomachy. They're just sentient concepts who are going about their business as usual.
