Wild animals sounds combined to make a prophecy echoed by the rattling leaves, “Oh Zeus, Metis will bear a child, a girl child. But if she bears again, it will be a son who will depose you as you deposed Cronos.” (Page 9) The next day he found Metis and opened his mouth and swallowed her. He had an insufferable headache. It felt as if someone inside him was poking him with a spear. Hephaestus jumped back after he hammered open Zeus’s head, as the mighty skull opened as a tall young girl in armor carrying a spear leaped out of his head.
While Odysseus gets angry with Polyphemus earlier in the story by saying, “...who dared to eat your own guests in your own house.” (9.479) Odysseus wants to kill every one of the suitors that is trying to marry Penelope, Odysseus 's wife. He could’ve easily have forced them to leave because of how powerful he is. He shows violence and no mercy towards almost everything. Odysseus resorts to violence in all situations to get what he needs done. He contradicts himself when talking to Polyphemus about eating his own guests because in reality, he most likely would´ve killed anyone who stepped foot into his home.
Odysseus did not want to go war because his son, Telemachus, was just born but he went anyways. Odysseus’s abyss occurred when he sees the prophecy and saw that his mom died and everyone was still grieving. In The Odyssey there were many initiations but the most significant one was, when Odysseus and his men find the cyclops and they are not able to escape. To enable the men to escape Odysseus gets the cyclops drunk, then stabs him in the eye, and then escapes riding on the bottom of the sheep. Finally his return was when Odysseus returns to Ithica he finds that other men are trying to take over his throne.
Pizarro had guns that weren’t very accurate but scared the Incas away because of their loud booms, This made the Incas run and try to escape but they couldn’t and lots of Incas died. For example “ there was an Inca God called Viracoxa, and he was a white man, and he was the god of thunder, and they thought these men with their aquabuses were the very incarnation of Viracoxa” Jared Diamond.

these are all great forms of titans and great forms as humans also but they barely can control the power of the titan form making it very dangerous to use and very risky and many sacrifices were made so he wouldn't be hurt sadly even his uncle and sister sacrificed.Hannes is his uncle and he died protecting him from a titan and mikasa-san who is erin’s sister she fractured her bones when a titan grabbed her while she was protecting him but erin saved her just in time because she would've died if that titan squeezed any harder this is why he doesn't like using his titan form very often because many die making sure he doesn't get hurt but this is what keeps them all alive. [Teamwork and protection of others] Hidden passages in attack on titan?katakana[a japanese language not used very often but used to spell old woman's names so a lot of people thought it was odd to see a passage about this and i do to because u don't just do that in one of the top books in the world that gets reviewed almost every day and is probably the most interesting books in
His mental state was in the correct place, but his physical state was not as strong as Hercules. It is constantly mentioned how unintelligent Hercules is. Hercules was powered by emotion, whilst Theseus was inspired by possible self-accomplishment. Theseus’s father was a king, but Hercules’s father was Zeus. Theseus was killed by Aphrodite and Hercules committed suicide.
He had a mortal mother and an immortal father, which meant half-blood. Hercules was very clumsy and had great strength, which caused him to accidently destroy things even though he meant well in everything he did. Heracles lost control of his temper,
It all started when Macbeth received a prophecy from the three witches saying that he would be made Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland. Later, on he had dinner with King Duncan at his castle and that same night he writes to Lady Macbeth to tell her all that has happened. After telling his wife all that has happened, she tries to persuade him into killing the King. Their plan was to get the guards really drunk so that they blacked out and wouldn’t remember anything and then go in for the kill. While the king is asleep, Macbeth sneaks into the king’s room and stabs him, despite all the blood on the dagger and his hands and all the consequences that would come with it.
While Heracles was a shepherd he killed all the animals and monsters that tried to eat the sheep. Until one day he came back to the kingdom and the nearby king gave him his daughter to have as a wife, Hera didn’t like this at all and made Heracles think that his children and wife were monsters so Heracles killed them all. Awaking heracles became horrified and went to the oracle of Delph to atone to his crimes the oracle said “you must serve your cousin Eurystheus, king of Mycenae as a slave for ten years and perform ten labors for him.” Eurystheus liked this idea a lot because he was jealous of his strong cousin. The first labor was to kill a golden lion that no weapon could penetrate his mane, second one was two kill the poisonous hydra, third one was to kill a magical boar, fourth one was to get rid of deadly birds, the fifth one was to clean the stables of giant horses, sixth one was to get a belt from an amazon queen, seventh one was to get 4 deadly mares, eighth one was to catch fire breathing bull, ninth one was to get a sacred hide from artemis. For the 10 labor he was sent to get 5 red cows which he
For his wife Drice they ordered a tormented death by tying her hair to a raging bull 's horns and letting her die as the animal run through the town. Dirce 's death is the theme of the marble statue "Famese Bull" in the Naples museum. Amphion became the king of Thebes and with his brother 's help he enclosed the city in imposing high walls and towers. The legend states that Zethus ordered the stones arranged into the wall by playing a sweet melody with his lyre, which was a gift by Hermes. http://ancient-greece.org/culture/mythology/antiope.html Antiope and her sons, Amphion and Zethos, were later honoured as heroes at Thebes.
