The Epic of Gilgamesh is the world’s oldest story, so, considering his lineage, one could call this impressive specimen the world’s first demigod. It’s only fitting that he be thoroughly jacked. Seriously, there have been some strongmen in the books of Rick Riordan and Rick Riordan Presents, but none so ripped as this legendary character from Sarwat Chadda’s City of the Plague God.
Our hero Sikander read about Gilgamesh since he was a little boy. Now, there’s some question as to whether one should call him a demigod or a superhero. With that physique, we’d say it’s a good idea to call him whatever he would like to be called.
But first, meet Gilgamesh!
