There’s a reason Leo Valdez gives Jason Grace the nickname of Superman. Jason is strong, heroic, handsome . . . and he can actually fly. In advance of Jason’s return in The Burning Maze, let’s take a moment to review all the abilities he’ll have to summon to survive!
As son of Jupiter (king of the Olympian gods), Jason was raised at Wolf House, where young Roman demigods hone their fighting skills. But none of that training means much if a jealous goddess puts you in a Mist-induced trance that makes you lose all your memories.
It’s highly doubtful that the gods are done messing with him.
Enchanted resources are at Jason’s fingertips—abilities like lightning generation and manipulation of air spirits. Then there was the golden coin that morphed into a sword on heads or a javelin on tails. Also his legendary sword, Gladius. And let’s not forget Tempest, his horse made of thunderclouds. Jupiter really does spoil his kids.
Percy Jackson learned early on that Jason is probably the last demigod you’d want to go toe-to-toe with. He’s helped take down several titans and giants, including Krios, Enceladus, and Porphyrion. He even stood his ground (or airspace) against Gaea herself.
Jason’s a founding member of the Heroes of Olympus, along with BFFs Leo Valdez, Frank Zhang, Hazel Levesque, Percy, and Annabeth. To say nothing of Piper McLean, his amazing girlfriend, who fell in love with him even before they technically met. He’s got a good thing going with her. Let’s pray to the gods he doesn’t mess it up.
We all remember how supportive he was of Nico when the son of Hades revealed his true feelings for Percy. Eventually Jason even renounced his warrior ways and received the priestly title of Pontifex Maximus.
We’ve heard that, these days, Jason is happily back at school. It’s highly doubtful that the gods are done messing with him. You can catch Jason in The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze, available for pre-order now, and on sale May 1st!
