First Appearance: Eagle (27th October 1962)


History: Heros was born in Sparta but raised as the adopted son of a Roman general and became centurion in the Roman army. Though a loyal servant of the Roman Empire, he often faced prejudice from other legionnaires due to his "foreign" origins. He travelled to the farthest outreaches of the empire, frequently encountering monsters and magic.

Comments: Created by writer Tom Tully and artist Frank Bellamy, the sword and sorcery epic Heros the Spartan occupied the centre pages of the Eagle from his debut on 27th October 1962. Spanish artist Luis Bermejo later alternated art chores with Bellamy, and eventually took over completely when Bellamy decided to depart.
