Avengers Neo- Hephaestus Picture

This is a picture of a character from my Marvel/Power Rangers/TMNT fanfiction story world.
Decided to finish off some pictures of the Greek gods in my Marvel inspired Olympian pantheon.
This is Hephaestus, the God of the forge, craft, fire and volcanoes, in ancient Greek mythology, known to the Romans as Vulcan. He is the son of Hera an Zeus, though legend tells that when Hera first saw him, she was horrified by his ugliness, and tossed him from Olympus, crippling one of his legs in the process. He was found and raised by sea nymphs until he reached adulthood, where he picked up the skills of a master craftsman, one of his first inventions being a brace to help fix his hobbled leg. He began to forge other wondrous tools, weapons and works of art, which soon became the envy of even Olympus, where he was called back and welcomed back on Olympus, given a seat among the twelve Olympians, and given a master's forge, and the aid of the elder Cyclopi to help make masterful weapons for the gods, including Zeus' thunderbolts, and supposedly other wonders like Neptune's Trident and Pluto's Helmet of Darkness. He was married to Venus, but she was unfaithful to him, often having affairs with his brother Ares, the god of War, and many of her children, such as Harmonia, Cupid, Deimos and Phobos are also Ares' children.
When worship of the Roman Gods faltered, Hephaestus retreated like the other Olympians, awakening only when the Corona Aurora was completed. Hephaestus returned to life on Olympus, and began to continue his occupation as a blacksmith, building many wonders, some of which resembled modern inventions. Eventually he was reunited with Venus, who was finally repulsed by the vile nature of Ares in the modern age, and did not take him back when Ares reformed, as he too had moved on.
Hephaestus possesses all the standard powers of an Olympian, being immortal and physically very strong. In battle, he wields a mighty hammer that he uses in his forge, and he is completely fire proof, something he can use to his advantage, such as handling hot slag. He is a master blacksmith, and has forged some of the most mystical relics of the Olympians, as well as other tools like mechanical maids, and an unbreakable net with strands so thin, it's invisible.
I drew him here in both a revealing outfit and more modest outfit he uses on the forge.
