VASUDEVAS

Indian Hero Deities

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.
