Ronald Calvin was a High School Social Studies teacher. After allegedly altering some test scores he was fired. Unable to find work in teaching, Calvin moved to Eagle City to start anew. Giving up teaching, Calvin found work as a dockworker. One day an unshaven and depressed Calvin found himself blessed with amazing powers. He discovered he could fly, wield bolts of lightning, and that he had gained amazing strength and stamina. To Calvin, these abilities seemed almost godlike. As a former teacher he quickly discovered the uncanny similarity between his new found abilities and that of a certain mythological figure. Taking up the mantle of Zeus, Calvin assumes the role of “The King of The Gods” and attacks the criminal element. Soon after he appeared he joined The Vanguard. He greatly enjoys both the respect and adoration of the public and the fear and dismay he inspires in criminals. After all, who would wish to fight a god?
