Myths & Legends issue 16 begins with the story called The Gathering (part 1 of 2).
When a truck with security men guarding shards with enormous powers, is being attacked by Baba Yaga, she reveals that someone is going to be upset by losing the shards. Moments later, we see a flashback story where the origin of Helios is told. He’s born by the union of incredibly powerful Highborn parents. As a toddler he kills by accident, a bunny because of his special powers. Some years has passed and his gifted powers are growing bigger. The village speculates about his inability to control his powers, but that makes him not frustrated or mad. The only thing he’s searching for is love. Before approaching a girl, Helios loves, he goes to every corner of the world, to learn if there is something or someone that can help tame his powers. He succeeds in finding someone and he presents himself to the girl of his dreams. It really seems they would get a happy life, but unfortunately this is not the case.
Back in the present we see the beast in search of something through the woods when he stumbles upon someone that can offer him peace. Has the Beast found his Beauty?
