The mysterious Golden Fleece is hidden on the Island of Cartania, which is on the planet of Caltos.

It is guarded by an invisible being sworn to protect the fleece.

On one occasion, Aquaman was forced by the Olympian gods, to go on a quest to retrieve the Golden Fleece.[1]

A few years later, in Greece, Aristides Demetrios is is given the Golden Fleece to wear, perhaps by Zeus himself, as a gift. Using the fleece, Aristides, fights crime as a member of the superhero team, the Global Guardians.[2]


Background Information

In Greek mythology, the Golden Fleece is the fleece of the winged ram Chrysomallos. It figures in the tale of Jason and his band of Argonauts, who set out on a quest for the fleece in order to place Jason rightfully on the throne of Iolcus in Thessaly. The story is of great antiquity – it was current in the time of Homer (eighth century BC) – and consequently it survives in various forms, among which details vary. Thus, in later versions of the story the ram is said to have been the offspring of the sea god Poseidon and Themisto.
