->"I hereby create ''Zeus and Sons''! Leaders in world administration!"
-->--'''Zeus, upon seizing control of Mount Olympus'''

Aeons ago, the old gods emerged from the primordial chaos, order was created, and Cronos ruled the world, [[EatsBabies gobbling his children]]. And then came Zeus, who dethroned him. Except Cronos is [[PublicEnemy a rapper guy with a clock medallion]], and Zeus turns the dwelling of the Gods into a large {{Office}} managing all of Greece. The story switches between the main action, retelling known Greek legends with a modern twist and the Muses commenting on the events like... [[GreekChorus well, you know]].

The comic contains some sexual themes and strong language.

!!This webcomic provides examples of:
* BadassBiker: Subverted. Although Hades does some things that may be considered badass like ruling the Underworld and raising skeletons, next thing you know, he's [[spoiler:crying his eyes out after a failed blind date, cuddling a tiny three-headed puppy and awkwardly proposing to Aphrodite]].
* BareYourMidriff: Aphrodite, Euterpe and Thalia wear short tops. Not necessarily for the same reasons.
* ConspiracyTheorist: Urania thinks Aphrodite's going to lead a testicle revolution, or that her mother may have brainwashed mortals into forgetting how to start a fire.
* CuteMonster: Cerberus, described in-universe as "just too cute".
* CuteMonsterGirl: Echidna, if you disregard the snake tail and big claws.
* DoNotAttempt: The Napalmolive commercial has a disclaimer dissuading mortal readers from using that shower gel.
* EmoTeen: Melpomene.
* FridgeHorror: [[http://www.zeusandsons.com/comics/34/ That cute costume]] little Erato is wearing? [[spoiler:That's a fursuit.]]

* MartialArtsHeadband: Worn by Calliope
* MotorMouth: Echo, freelance chat-pal. Judging by her [[UncannyValley glazed stare]] and wide smile, she may very well fall within TalkativeLoon territory
* PerpetualSmiler: Thalia is always depicted smiling or grinning.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Ares.
* SceneryCensor, GodivaHair: Aphrodite first appears nude, with her RapunzelHair} covering her naughty bits.
