From sex-crazed gods to ravenous monsters, Ben Thompson
brings legendary titans to life in tales of adventure,
bloodlust, and unrelenting badassitude.
Since the beginning of human history people have created
myths, tall tales, superheroes, and arch-villains—men and
women who embarked on insane adventures, performed
extraordinary feats of unparalleled awesomeness, and
overcame all odds to violently smite their foes into bloody
pulp. In Badass: The Birth of a Legend, Ben Thompson
compiles these fantastical tales from the beginning of time
to today and tells them in the completely over-the-top
manner in which they were intended, including:
The Indian god-king who led an army of monkeys against
the King of All Demons
The Viking god of thunder and awesome hair, who crushed
the skulls of giants with a ridiculously huge hammer
An Anglo-Saxon hero so hardcore he could arm-wrestle
monsters' joints out of their sockets
The hate-filled literary behemoth who obliterated ship
hulls with his face
The Norse necromancer queen who summoned a horde of
Dirty Harry Callahan
The prototypical modern-day antihero and very embodiment
