I’m a big fan of Poseidon ever since I’ve read the Percy Jackson series! I love the ocean and everything in it!

Love the trident design and the horse head on his belt! The shades of blue are used to amazing effect here, and the black armor and silver accents just really make the blue of his eyes and armor stand out!

Is NeOlympus part of E-27?

Kinda/Sorta/Not really.

NeOlympus itself is not built upon the idea that the gods came from a world where there was an immortal caveman roaming around or that Zeus had sired Wonder Woman, therefore in "NeOlympus" itself, there is no connection.

Yet... In Earth-27's continuity, the past events of NeOlympus did happen and the Gods of Olympus did retire from Earth to take up residence in Elysium, but some gods like Zeus, Ares, and more still visit Earth and have resources invested in Earth... Whereas in proper NeOlympus, only Hermes visits Earth with some frequency.

So, in my NeOlympus stories, Earth-27 does not exist; but in Earth-27 NeOlympus is more or less canon.

I hope you can follow that. Thanks.

Love the horse detail
These classical versions give me a little bit of Saint Seiya nostalgia

I know, and now that I think about it, it's the first time I see that fact incorporated in his design

His NeOlympus design had a horse head on it.
