God of War Comics
On his quest for the Ambrosia, Kratos encountered a strange healer who told the Spartan he would not succeed in saving Calliope. An angered Kratos grabbed him by the throat, but was given the Flame in response. Warned the Flame would not protect him, Kratos simply went his way, using the Flame to light his way in a cave leading to the Ambrosia. Years later, Kratos used the Flame to burn Gyges, the island on which the Ambrosia was located, to destroy the healing liquid, as followers of Ares desired to use it to resurrect their fallen god.
