Greek legendary mortal

Annoying beast-bashing macho hero who pissed off Zeus

A grandson of Sisyphus, he was one of those brawling hero types never happier then when he was biffing hideous monsters. For example, the awful Chimera.

When he captured the winged horse Pegasus there was no stopping him until Zeus, sick of his bragging and not wanting him as a member of the exclusive Olympus set, sent a swift horsefly to unseat the High Rider.

Bellerophon fell to earth and hobbled off into obscurity.
