In the comic book The Wicked + The Divine, every 90 years twelve random human beings turn into reincarnated gods and goddesses. Despite being immortal and having other god-powers, they all end up dead in two years. The series is written by Kieron Gillen, illustrated by Jamie McKelvie, and published by Image Comics.

Their purpose each go-round is to inspire humanity and fight off the Great Darkness. In the 2010s "Recurrence" (the term for their appearance) they all become pop stars.

Persephone was born Laura Wilson in 1996 in South London. She became the Greek goddess of springtime, death and rebirth after attending Ragnarock 2014, a massive five-day rock concert by the other gods and goddesses. It took place in Hyde Park and was attended by half a million people.
