King Zeus was a villain (not a god) who dressed himself and his gang in the garb of Greek gods, rode in a mechanical 'flying chariot' and threw 'thunderbolts' which were really concealed hand grenades. He pulled several robberies and captured Diane Meade, whom he claimed was the goddess Diana. When J’onn J’onzz followed, he found that Diane and Zeus were are protected by a ring of torches at the villain’s hideout. But Zeus appeared to believe the Martian was an incarnation of Hercules, and sent him off to duplicate the hero’s twelve labors. During one of the 'labors', J’onzz snuffed out Zeus’s torches with compressed air, saved Diane and captured Zeus and his gang.
