Lon Crag was a high school art student and a great patriot. One day Lon was drawing a picture of Menelaos of greek legend When the picture comes to life and grants him one wish. Lon wishes to be a "great and good hero". Now whenever Lon says, "Illium" he gains the wisdom of Ulysses, battle-prowess of Agamemnon, and the invulnerability and weakness of Achilles. Lon also, has super-strength, able to fly, and carries a red triskelion shield.
