The Priapus wiki last edited by fesak on 05/07/13 10:53AM View full history

Origin 

Greek god of fertility, male fertility and horticulture, Priapus was said to be incredibly endowed physically, but at the same time physically ugly. Child of the god of wine Dionysus and the goddess of love Aphrodite. Priapus was shunned by other gods who did not want to associate with him. At one point Priapus attempted to force himself on a character Lotis who defended herself by turning into the flower of the same name. Another incident involved a talking donkey and an argument between said Donkey and Priapus, and bragging about whose sexual fertility and libido was greater. Priapus lost and in retaliation slew the talking donkey.  
 
A modern day Priapus bearing strong resemblance to the god Priapus, goes by the name, but there is much ambiguity to whether he is the authentic god, or merely someone overly familiar with the god, and using his likeliness and characteristics. Whether he is the real authentic god, or an impostor, the modern day hedonistic Priapus is extremely powerful and long lived. Priapus in modern times encounters and is ultimately defeated by the heroes Silver Sable, Luke Cage and Terror, after driving a plot involving the acquirement and accumulation of various artifacts designed to increase his powers. He also founded a cult which worshipped and reveled in Priapus's virility and deviancy. Priapus's highest ambition was to be the god of a new world order and religion, that would overthrow and replace all other religions. His religion being one that emphasized on erotic sensuality and pleasures of the flesh
