Best uses of an Egyptian God/Goddess in a Comic Book
Don't Worry Isis! I'll unlock that gag and you will be able to tell me what's up.
Here, Bastet stands in front of a stargate. Bastet was the goddess of the sun and war, so it makes sense she would appear during a time of a "Stargate Rebellion".
Here Set is about to devour two unlucky archaeologists who have disturbed the tomb of Osiris(green glow in coffin). Set is the god who poked out Horus's other eye, thus giving him a displeasant attitude. He also killed Horus's father Osiris before Horus was even born. (Huh?) It kind of explains why he would have an interest in seeing that Osiris's rest is not disturbed.
The mummified body of Horus, you can tell by the one eye. The original Blue Beetle derived his power from an ancient Egyptian Scarab.
Blue Beetle Vs. The Eye of Horus. The Eye is out to enslave the world. It is green, as the father of Horus had green skin. It's a wonder how the hero of ancient Egypt has become the scourge of the modern world.
