Jason (Jason and the Argonauts) Jason Is a hero of Greek mythology who sailed with other men (among them Hercules) on the ship Argo, in search of the Golden Fleece. This was the golden skin of a sacred ram which was guarded by a fierce dragon. On their journey to the ends of the earth in this pursuit they encountered many fantastical adventures and faced them all heroically together. In the end, however, it was a woman, the sorceress Medea, who drugged the dragon with a magic potion, thereby allowing them to slay the dragon and win the fleece. She and Jason and the others escape and make their way back to Greece with their prize, where Jason and Medea marry and have two children. The great Greek tragedian, Euripides, tells of the not-so-happy aftermath of this event in his famous play, Medea, written and produced around 460 BC.
Jason Bourne (The Bourne Series) Jason Bourne is one of the aliases of the super spy, special operative, and foreign services officer, David Webb, of the “Bourne” series of books by Robert Ludlum. Beloved of boys and men (and some women) everywhere, he is the personification of action, derring-do, escape fantasies and general mayhem. Injured by an attack that leaves him in a state of amnesia, Bourne is driven by a need to recoup his identity and discover the truth behind the deaths of his wife and children. The popular series of movies based upon these books stars Matt Damon.
