Traffic-light Gods

So, this is my entry for Art Challenges,II: 21st Century Mythology-EXTENDEDWe decided to extend this prompt until the end of November!
This prompt was inspired by a prompt we saw in the very popular Flash Fiction Month held by Flash-Fic-Month, and considering it's a perfect fit for a Fantasy group, we're upgrading it a little. ;) so read on for the new challenge, and for the lucky winner of last month's challenge!

Poetic warrior, I'm like Achilles fighting smarter.
I'm Ares in the flesh so the lessers wanna fight me.-- from Fairytale Mythology of YouInventedMe 
The Gods of Tomorrow
In the days of old, gods were beings capable of commanding the seas, ripping the skies in two, bending nature and Destiny to their will. Of course, the gods back then had gifts inspired by the necessities of the day, right? The tasks and parts of the everyday

The story behind this piece is that when I read the prompt  for Art Challenges,II: 21st Century Mythology-EXTENDED, I was immediately reminded of how when I was a little girl and my Mom drove me to school every weekday morning, each day Mom and I would joke about "'the traffic-light gods" and whether or not they were on our side that morning. So, here you have the Traffic-light god and goddess - born in a lab in Olympia  and created by the god of Technology and Science specifically to reign over all motorists, part god and part machine they can control many things from the workings of motors to the durability of tires; but it is their power over traffic-lights that earns them the title as the God and Goddess of Traffic-lights. I chose to depict them in the style of comic-books because gods and goddesses inspired many comic-book characters, including multiple superheroes who could be considered the modern equivalent of ancient mythology.
