The mighty Zeus is father of gods and men. 
 
Humanity's capacity to love, as embodied by his demigod son, Perseus, has inspired Zeus to believe in humanity's future and favour Perseus over his son Ares, the god of war.
 
But the gods' powers are diminishing, and Ares, along with Zeus' brother Hades, has conspired against Zeus to unleash the fearsome Titan Kronos. Long ago, the brother gods Zeus, Hades and Poseidon rose up against their father, imprisoning him deep within the Underworld in Tartarus. If freed, this monstrous Titan could crush humanity's future with one blow.
