Jason was a human man.
In ancient times, Jason was the faithful "butler" of King Midas, the King of Phrygia, known for his great wealth and immense greed. Though professional to a point, Jason swallowed his pride and made a run for it when the newly golden-touch-endowed Midas began acting more and more unhinged about his gift, threatening to turn even Jason himself into gold to satisfy his mad greed.
Behind the scenesEdit
Jason appears in the 1953 comic version of The Golden Touch. Strangely, he was apparently added by whoever wrote up this treatment of the story, as no such character appears in the 1935 cartoon on which it is based, where the living being Midas threatens to turn to gold is, instead, his pet cat.
