Asura’s Wrath

Asura might not be first on your list when you envision furious, betrayed demigods, but he’s a pretty close second. His wife is killed, his daughter kidnapped and he’s murdered by the generals with whom he previously served. He waits a whopping 12000 years – he’s a patient one, this Asura – and then returns to batter his former colleagues, who have now become gods. Much like a multi-armed, spiky-haired Hulk, the angrier you make Asura the more likely he is to punch your face off. Every time he’s killed he comes back scowlier, and the sheer scale of his boundless fury is satisfying like thumping a giant, intergalactic finger.
