Greek mythology was the mythology of a pre-Christian pagan religion of the people of Greece.



Among the gods worshipped by the ancient Greeks were Zeus, Kronos, Artemis, Hephaestus, Poseidon, Eros and Zephyrus.


The Greek myths were known for its heroes, such as Hercules, Theseus, Icarus, Philoctetes and Castor and Pollux.


The Greek myths were also known for its monsters, such as Medusa, Cerberus, Cyclops, the Gorgons and the Minotaur.


In the Greek myths, the afterlife involved crossing the River Styx in order to enter the Elysian Fields. (PROSE: Katarina in the Underworld)


One Greek myth told how man learned to use fire after Prometheus stole it from heaven and gave it to them. (COMIC: The Life Bringer!)

Cultural referencesEdit

Greek mythology inspired the names of stars and constellations visible from Earth, such as Pegasus, Andromeda, Orion, Castor and Pollux. (PROSE: Byzantium!)

Strangely, some Greek myths seemed to be repeated throughout time and space. The Minyans' quest echoed that of Jason and the Argonauts. (TV: Underworld) The story of Theseus and the Minotaur had similarities to the Anethans and the Nimon. (TV: The Horns of Nimon) When Miracle Day occurred in 2011, it seemed as if the story of Tithonus would be made a reality for the whole world. (TV: Rendition)
