For example, in the movie Wrath of the Titans by Jonathan Liebesman, Hades deeply hates his brothers and sisters. He almost ultimately destroys the underworld by awakening the titan Cronus, which is his daddy. Near the end, Zeus apologizes to Hades and they both fight together to help Pursues slay Cronus. There are some similarities and differences in the movie to Edith Hamilton’s Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes. First, Hades in the movie has a staff with two stakes and in the book he does not.

In this paragraph I’m going to talk about how the Inca, Mayan, and Aztec are similar. The Inca, Mayans, and Aztec all believed in many gods. They all have a moon god and a sun god but they have different names. Like the sun and moon god. The Mayan, Aztec and the Inca have very similar gods.
It concerns the murder of the god Osiris, a primeval king of Egypt, and its consequences. Osiris murderer, his brother Set, usurps his throne..Meanwhile, Osiris 's wife restores her husband 's body, allowing him to posthumously conceive a son with her.

When Zeus reached manhood he forced Cronus to disgorge his siblings and then released Cronus’ siblings from Tartarus. Upon releasing the Cyclops, Zeus was given the lightning bolt as a token for their appreciation. A ten-year war was fought between the Olympians (which also included the Gigantes, Hecatonchires and the Cyclops) and Titans, which resulted in Zeus overthrowing Cronus.
