Glaucus was a member of the Argonauts and a crewmate of the mighty Hercules. After eating magical herbs, he was granted immortality. He was also hand-picked by the Amazon Queen, Hippolyta, to be the tutor of her secret son, Jason.
In the past, Glaucus lived many adventures as member of the Argonauts crew, serving under the original Jason. He also traveled and fought side by side with the mighty Hercules: the two were longtime friends. After the queen Hippolyta had a pair of twins with the King of the Olympians, Zeus, Glaucus was chosen by the Amazon to be the tutor of her male son, Jason, who could not be hid on Themyscira. Hippolyta's lover and counselor, the general Philippus, brought Jason to him and Glaucus accepted to look after him, but without promising to not reveal Jason's true origins to him when the right moment came.
After coming back from Themyscira, he transferred to the Aegean Coast in Greece, living a quiet life as a fisherman with Jason: Glaucus wanted him to grow up as a normal boy, without the chance of discovering his true potential until the right time. Soon though, Jason had a vision of the Greek gods and awakened his powers, leading him to need training and learn how to use them. After revealing to Jason the truth about his origin, Glaucus asked a favor out of Hercules: his old friend accepted to be Jason's trainer, thus making him a skilled fighter and also giving him a way to control his supernatural capabilities.
When he thought Jason was ready, Glaucus decided to leave him, letting him be himself: he stated he needed to start a new adventure, and disappeared after giving to Jason his home and a fishing boat. After this, he was kidnapped by the Kobra Cult some time later, locked inside a laboratory in Montenegro for testing, as he was an interesting subject thanks to his immortality. Jason found out about it after reconciling himself with his sister, and broke Glaucus free. Happy to see his son grew up well, also now having a strong relationship with his sister, Glaucus commented on Jason's new armor, telling him that it granted him the powers of all the Olympian to use as his own, even if one at a time.
