Athos, Porthos & Aramis. Athos, Porthos & Aramis were originally created by Alexandre Dumas, père, and appeared in the Mousquetaires trilogy: Les Trois Mousquetaires (1844), Vingt Ans Après (1845), and Le Vicomte de Bragelonne (1848). In 1922 the French author Jean de La Hire (Paul Ardent, Black Corsair, Boy Scout, Franc-Hardi, Nyctalope, Joe Rollon, Three Boy Scouts, Two Kids), under the pseudonym of “Alexandre Zorka,” wrote Les Mousquetaires de 15 Ans #1-50 (1922-1923).

De La Hire’s Athos, Porthos & Aramis are Cape-and-Épée Heroes. Despite being only fifteen years old, they have a variety of adventures in France in the early 17th century, anticipating their later exploits. They appear in stories with titles like “The House of the Executioner,” “The Black Masks,” and “The Witch of Concino.”
