    Who is your favorite Olympian in Greek mythology?

    Vote away, and please feel free to share why as well.

    Please note that there is no true canonical list of Olympians; I am adding the most common ones here. I am aware that Hades is generally not considered an Olympian since he resided in the Underworld, but neglecting to add him is nonsensical. I am also adding both Hestia and Dynosius to the poll, as which of the two is the true twelfth Olympian is very subjective and up to debate.

    I've also added Roman names for the heretics among us.

    I just came to say that Norse mythology is better.

      I am hardly an expert in any of the ancient mythoi, but I'm fairly well-read in all the applicable ones.

      With that said, any opinion in this regard would be loaded; I personally would hesitate to refer to any as the "best" one, for they have different strengths and weaknesses (for lack of a more respectful term that works here), and since there is much variation in the myths and their interpretations within each mythology.

        Mars. Self-explanatory.

        Further, Uranus is the only relevant Greek deity (lol) in the entire pantheon, so you're the only heretic here.

            Feel free to continue being horrible, though.

            P.S. Mars the OG (original goon) would knock a four-eyes like Minerva the FUCK out, lmao.

                That is my fundamental stratagem; I'm always horrible. :}

                If Romans were the pragmatists and engineers, Greeks were the thinkers, philosophers, and scientists; in other words, the Romans named the planets the Greeks had already discovered.

                Basically, Rome is parasitic and stole all of the best ideas from other civilizations to assemble their own nightmarish amalgamation.

                Minerva

                  All the best ideas such as pederasty, right? If the Greeks deserve credit for the Romans' rise (and "rise"), they surely deserve credit for their subsequent fall. ;) In any event, history is written by the victors, so...

                  --
                  Unironically fake news. Never took place in the Roman canon because Roman writers were actually, you know, competent.

                  Don't blame me because the goob you're fangirling over is the Smellvin of the pantheon, right down to the name.

                        Mr Ares would like a word with you.



                        On topic, every God in the Parthenon has their own neat things about them. Zeus being the King of the gods, ares being the God of war, Apollo who was great at archery and music, and don't forget Bacchus, the very first crossdresser in existence.

                          I voted Athena, but I changed my mind and I can't change my vote, so can you please do that?

                              Blacksmiths are badass, and not just men.

                                True. I saw an episode of Forged in Fire (Started watching the show. Its pretty cool.) one time, and it was an all female group of challengers.

                                  Hades is the only good brother from the Titans' offspring, and one of the few gods in the Greek pantheon that doesn't regularly do terrible things to people for almost no reason.

                                  I mean... There was the Persephone thing, but at least the story ENDS happily.
