Subj: Connecting some of the villains to Greek mythology ?
Posted: Thu Mar 01, 2018 at 01:06:32 pm EST (Viewed 513 times)


Of course, Ares, Deimos, Phobos, Medusa, Eris & Circe all come from Greek mythology.

The 1st Silver Swan, Helen Alexandros, was linked to the story of Leda and the Swan.


Would it be possible to connect some of the other villains to Greek mythology ?

Yes ! \:\-\)

Doctor Psycho : the most obvious answer would be Psyche & Eros but I am still looking for an alternative ...
