Thanks for watching, SoloFam! (☞゚ヮ゚)☞ Hope you liked this episode. While incredibly sad I thought it was fascinating how different Medusa was in the original myth. There's even MORE interesting lore about the gorgon species that I plan on getting into in a separate video when we start exploring mythological creatures! In the meantime I'd love for you to comment your thoughts on this episode and any suggestions you have for future videos! I've already got a LOT of ideas written down but Greco-Roman mythology alone is so expansive that the more directions you can point me in the better. I don't want to miss anything interesting as we progress through the series! Peace and love yous.

Jon Solo, I have always admired Medusa because I feel she was wronged by the Gods. I love Greek Mythology, so I look forward to seeing more of these episodes.

If I’m going to be honest though, when I’m outside of that character, I love Greek mythology as a whole, especially learning about the gods! If I had to choose three gods that were my favorite, Zeus, Poseidon, and Aries! I personally feel like I would be a son of either Poseidon or Zeus, due to my leader like Waze, and my sincere and ultimate love of the water!

Can I be honest, I’ve always been that one person out of many who feels bad for medusa! She didn’t deserve what happened to her, and it’s not just her, but a lot of other people that got missed treated by the gods that makes me believe that they are seriously messed up! It’s also kind of hilarious, because I do role-play with all of my friends, or at least some of them, especially my best friend, and I always role-play as Perseus, I hate my father also known as Zeus! I hate pretty much all the gods, because they are just horrible beings, but I especially hate him due to his tyrannical Waze, and miss treatment of mortals!

yeah im not at all surprised with everyone saying medusa was wronged and all. as someone who has both done quite extensive research for the sake of uni hw and someone who's been exposed to greek myths since a little girl let me tell yall something; it can be estimated that medusa's may have existed prior to athena (and possibly the greek pantheon as we know it now) and was regarded as a goddess as well. AND the nowadays popular version where medusa is a human follower of athena who got wronged by athena and poseidon is possibly the LATEST version of the myth told during the roman times whereas during the greek time it is medusa and poseidon doing athena wrong and medusa aint even a human or mortal most of the time.

Disappointed you didn't mention the African Triple Goddess Anath who had dreadlocks. Its believed that the Greeks picked up the story and turned it into slander to remove credibility of another religion.

Medusa is my favourite story so very tragic and sad ending but a story to pass on to others. In the end the gods have the last laugh. Cheers and thank you Jon Solo for this story of Medusa and her gorgon sisters.:)
