Remember the Greek myths you assumed were fiction? The old gods that you assumed were just someone’s imagination? You were wrong. They’ve been with us the whole time, fighting battles we didn’t even know existed, and they’ve returned. The Olympians are reuniting, preparing to fight the most dangerous battle they’ve ever faced.
