VASUDEVAS
Also known as VĀSUDEVAS

Gratuitously violent Jain superheroes

They are members of the SALAKAPURUSAS, a supertastic collection of weird and wonderful demi-deities populating Jain mythology.

There are nine VASUDEVAS — warrior heroes who specialize in fighting with extreme violence, provided it's in a good cause. As soon as they stop fighting we will attempt to bring you an exclusive interview with them.

Note: Although KRISHNA is one of the VASUDEVAS, they seem to have little or no connection with his mortal father VASUDEVA. We think.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Vasudevas graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Vasudevas movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Vasudevas statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Vasudevas. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
