Impotents is the story of young Jesus, Buddha, Ganesh and Missy (Artemis) all living in the modern world. These four would-be gods are unaware of their vast potential and struggle to make their way. Unlike their holy counterparts, this group is pretty much powerless. In other words “impotent” and probably better defined by their weaknesses.
As the series progresses, the four form a special bond. Their relationships evolve and they realize that, together, they can offset each other’s inadequacies. Within this universe exist a few other holy souls (Mary, Joseph, Zeus) as well as big cast of other supporting characters.Download the Two-Sheet
