Zha-Vam is one of most fearsome opponents to ever challenge [[Superman]], an amalgamation of  the power and arrogance of the Olympian gods. In the distant past, the [[Oracle of Delphi]] shows the mighty gods [[Zeus]], [[Hercules]], [[Achilles]], [[Vulcan]], [[Apollo]], and [[Mercury (God)|Mercury]] that because of Superman's future heroism, the gods will be forgotten and the people of Earth will come to hail the Man of Tomorrow in their stead. Shocked by this vision, the gods convince [[Prometheus]] to mold a figure of clay and they transform it into a mighty and powerful titan named Zha-Vam, an ultimate champion to defeat and humiliate Superman. Zha-Vam's name signifies the first letters of the names of the six jealous Olympian gods and heroes who inbue him with their separate powers. The gods also give Zha-Vam a magic belt with which he can summon the abilities of the immortals of many ancient lands simply by pressing a corresponding letter on the belt. In addition, Zha-Vam constructs a [[Kryptonite]] sock to protect his "Achille's Heel" and preserve his invulnerability.

When Zha-Vam springs to the 20th century to engage the [[Man of Steel]], Superman discovers that all his powers are not enough to defeat  him and silence the gloating gods.  However, after Superman travels to the past to discover the source of Zha-Vam's origin (in order to even the odds), he enlists the aid of Zeus's jealous rivals, including [[Pluto]], [[Neptune]], and the titan [[Atlas]]. They give Superman a unique magic belt of his own to use against Zha-Vam, helping the Man of Tomorrow to finally defeat him and lay his beaten body at the feet of the shocked Olympians (Act No. 351, Jun 1967: "Zha-Vam the Invincible!"; Act No. 352, Jul 1967: "The Victory of Zha-Vam!"; Act No. 353, Aug 1967: "The Battle of the Gods!").
