In the movie after Megera betrayed Hades, he made the choice to make a deal with Hercules so he wouldn’t have powers for a full day. Only way Hercules agreed was that Meg would be safe; indeed she was until she saved Hercules’ life from a column falling on him getting her crushed. After the death of Meg, Hercules made a trip to the underworld to retrieve Megera’ soul. This task would kill a mortal but could prove him as a hero. After saving Megera’ soul and placing it back in her body Megara was alive again.
Cronus was given a poison from Zeus in disguise. This poison would make Cronus throw up all of his children. The first to come out was the stone wrapped in cloth. Then came Poseidon, Hades, Hera, Demeter, and last Hestia. While Cronus was drunk Zeus let out all of Cronus 's non-titan siblings.
When Mary Shelley originally published the novel anonymously in 1818, it was titled Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. In Greek mythology, Prometheus was a titan that defied the gods by granting humanity with the gift of fire (later suffering severe punishment). Victor Frankenstein embodies Prometheus’s archetype; he attempts to give the gift of life to humanity, and ends up suffering grave punishment as well. Interestingly, another comparison to Greek mythology reveals the power of light. In the story of Icarus, the titular character and his father are imprisoned on the island of Crete.
Prometheus is one of he most enduring figures in greek mythology, he is the one and only titan who sided with Zeus against Zeus 's father Cronus, Cronus over threw his father Ouranos by defeating him and became the new ruler of the titans, and he ends up eating all of his children and and his wife Rhea could only save one and that one was Zeus, which he defeated and forced him to throw up all his siblings out and him and his siblings defeat the titans for control of the universe. Prometheus defies the gods by helping humans, and he is most notable for bringing fire from Olympus, and the skill of metal work. Zeus devises a cruel torture for him.

It happened that Metis was going to have a child, and she was making armor and making a splendid robe for her child. For a while, Zeus suffered pounding headaches, and Hephaestus, being skilled at the tools, split open his father’s skull. Athena jumped out of Zeus’s head, thunder roared, and the gods stood in awe. There was this one time that made Athena very mad, when she turned one of the weavers Arachne, into a spider after the mortal girl insulted Athena and the Olympian gods. One of Athena’s pupils, Arachne, was
Hera strikes me as a very jealous character. Jealousy can make people do irrational things. Hera did just that, she saw that Callisto was praised by her husband, Zeus and turned Callisto into a bear. Hera strikes me also as cruel because she took Callisto away from her son. By taking away Callisto away from her human life she also took away her chance to be happy.
First, the greed of the epics’ heroic characters alters the journey and fates of the mortal characters. For example, in the beginning of The Iliad, Achilles is dishonored when his war prize, Briseis, is stolen by King Agamemnon. In turn, Achilles goes to his mother, Thetis, to utilize her immortal influence to help the Trojans defeat the Achaeans; “Let [Zeus] give help now to the Trojans. Let them drive the Greeks in among their very ships on the sand, killing them there” (Homer 43). In doing so, Achilles intends the Greeks will realize how important he is, and regret taking away Briseis.
In Ovid’s Metamorphoses, violence plays an important role when humanity turn against the gods. The beginning of the third age begins with “crueler nature” and “savage warfare” (170) which make humans think they can defeat the gods like in the story “Wars with Giants.” The Giants become chaotic when they soon realize that they can be “harmful and greedy” (189-190) like humans so they attempt to overthrow Jove which backfires against them. Jove uses all his power to destroy the Giants for thinking they can put the mighty Jupiter out of his place. Ever since the evolution of four ages started, both humans and gods have to use violence to fight for their rights or punishment.
Nevertheless, “when he beheld their smiling, their swagger of golden helms, the frown of his thunder blasted the first man from our walls for God hates utterly the bray of bragging tongues” (parodos, 21-25). Zeus, perhaps the most powerful patriarch of the Greek gods, is responsible for maintaining order in both the real world and the spiritual world. Thus, he helps Thebes win the battle when he notices the Argive army exulting in their impending victory. Subsequently, the two brothers find themselves in single combat and kill each other, hence, continuing the presumed Oedipus’ family curse. Furthermore, upon their deaths, Creon buries Eteocles in a grandiose commemoration, yet deserts Polyneices’ corpse to rot and be devoured by the birds and dogs; to preclude someone of a burial
According to some Sisyphus was wise and thought of the effect of his actions, where others say he was essentially a criminal. Camus sees no contradiction in these two views. Reasons differ on why he was punished some say because he was using secrets of the gods to bargain. Sisyphus also put Death in chains but Pluto, king of the underworld, got the god of war to set her free. 3.
The battle between Zeus and Typhon was amazing Typhon hurling mountains at Zeus, Zeus raining down lighting bolts on Typhon, Typhon cut out the tendons of Zeus 's hands and feet and left them next to him in the cave, she left them with him because knew Zeus son was going to save him and stitch the tendons back into Zeus hands
