Sea Nettle (Chrysaora fuscescens)
This stage of their life cycle, with jelly-like bell and stinging tentacles, has earned them the names “sea jelly” and “medusa”
The genus name, Chrysaora, comes from a character in Greek mythology “born” of Medusa, named Chrysaor (a golden giant), meaning “He with a golden sword.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀
In early myths, Medusa was born a monster, but later versions tell a sadder tale. Supposedly, Medusa was the most beautiful of the three Gorgon sisters, and the only mortal. Pursued by Poseidon, she ran to Athena’s temple for protection, but was raped there by Poseidon anyway. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As punishment, Athena turned Medusa’s hair into serpents and made her hideous enough to turn people into stone (unfair by today’s standards, but just by ancient standards, especially considering Athena couldn’t punish Poseidon, her father’s brother). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When Perseus came along and chopped off Medusa’s head, Chrysaor and Pegasus emerged from her neck. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Jason Pt. 2
Jason finally arrived to Iolcus, the land that was rightfully his, and found his uncle Pelias still in control while his father still imprisoned. King Pelias was quick to notice that he was missing a sandal and cunningly invited him to dine with him. Jason let his guard down and simply talked to the king. Of course, Jason was an honest man and informed the king of his intentions. He was there to reclaim his throne, and that was it.
King Pelias asked if he was truly sure that he could lead a kingdom having no experience. Jason said he was sure that he could handle whatever situation was presented to him. The king asked him about the kinds of dilemmas that rulers of kingdoms find themselves in. One thing that King Pelias asked his nephew was how he would get rid of a person who was giving him trouble without killing him.
Jason was eager to give a good answer to prove himself a worthy successor. He suggested that the person be sent on a quest to obtain the Golden Fleece. This was a quest that many heroes failed to complete. Jason’s suggestion paved his own future because it was something that King Pelias decided to do. He knew that the chances of succeeding were slim, and he knew that he would likely not return.
Pelias told his nephew that this was to be his quest. A quest that would make him a hero amongst men and king amongst his people. Jason thought it through and agreed to the mission.
Ares, o Deus da Guerra, faz parte da mitologia grega e seu arquétipo é da virilidade e impulsividade, servindo de oponente da Mulher-Maravilha.
Ares apareceu pela primeira vez em Wonder Woman # 01 (verão de 1942) na história que reconta a origem da heroína. Nela, foi descrita a preparação de Ares para a guerra. Para contra-ataca-lo, Afrodite produziu um exército de mulheres,chamadas Amazonas. A sua líder, Hipólita, ela deu um cinto mágico de invencibilidade. Hipólita derrotou Ares, e levou suas Amazonas para viver em paz em um lugar chamado Ilha Paraíso (Paradise Island).
O tempo passou, e Hipólita esculpiu uma figura de barro, criando sua filha, Diana, que se tornaria a Mulher-Maravilha. Vindo para o mundo dos homens, Diana teve que se confrontar a belicorosidade de seus habitantes, e logo entrou em combate com Ares. Na trama, foi revelado que Ares estava por atrás da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Juntamente com seus generais Cobiça (Greed), Decepção (Deception) e Conquista (Conquest), eles influenciavam mentalmente as atitudes de Hitler e Mussolini no conflito. Após enfrentar os generais, Diana lutou corporalmente com Ares e o derrotou, embora ele voltaria outras vezes mais.
Curiosamente, a partir dessa história, Ares teve seu nome modificado para a sua contraparte romana, Marte (Mars). O nome Ares somente voltaria a ser utilizado no final da década de 1970.
Ares será interpretado pelo ator David Thewlis no filme da Mulher-Maravilha, de 2017. *****
