Ulysses (Walter Charles) is a member of the Pantheon in the Marvel Comics universe. The character, created by Peter David and Dale Keown, first appeared in Incredible Hulk #379 (March 1991).

Within the context of the stories, a different man known as Ulysses was originally a member of the Pantheon. When he became annoyed at Agamemnon's illogical decisions, Agamemnon ordered he be killed. Walter takes over as Ulysses, and he clashes often with his fellow Pantheon members. Paris hates Ulysses for letting his parents die, and Ulysses and Hector often argue about Hector's homosexuality. Jason hates Ulysses for plucking out his eye with the handle of a mop, while Ulysses' predecessor thought he was incompetent.

Ulysses has an infatuation with fellow Pantheon member Delphi who has the habit of almost always being naked but had sworn to remain pure of body. Achilles mentioned that Ulysses's love for Delphi springs from the fact that she is unattainable. Delphi leaves the Pantheon shortly before Agamemnon's death to stay with her mother Andromeda. Following Agamemnon's death, Ulysses leaves the Pantheon to track down Delphi.

Famous quotes containing the word ulysses:

    At bottom there is in Joyce a profound hatred for humanity—the scholar’s hatred. One realizes that he has the neurotic’s fear of entering the living world, the world of men and women in which he is powerless to function. He is in revolt not against institutions, but against mankind.... Ulysses is like a vomit spilled by a delicate child whose stomach has been overloaded with sweetmeats.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)

    You should approach Joyce’s Ulysses as the illiterate Baptist preacher approaches the Old Testament: with faith.
    William Faulkner (1897–1962)

    All my good reading, you mught say, was done in the toilet.... There are passages in Ulysses which can be read only in the toilet—if one wants to extract the full flavor of their content.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
