In classic myth, and this is something often overlooked by casual readers, Ares is among the fastest Gods after Hermes. This was showcased pretty well in "Immortals", for example.
Quote:Everybody hated and despised Ares, he was a bastard, he was all that was wrong and bad in war and Athena was all that was good and just in it.
Quote:...if by "poor" you mean, crude, ugly, and savage then ok, but if you meant non-efficient than that's less ok. Contrarily to Athena he wasn't a strategist, but that doesn't mean he was handling a axe like a moron. Ares was all about killing and the ugly side of war while Athena was about strategy. Being loved and being good at what you do isn't the same.
Quote:I think that difference is good but I think Ares should have some ability with strategy and should be an expert on battle tactics of all kinds. Which they sort of have shown before but I do wish he seemed more threatening than he was.
I agree too. What's the point of your own clan deferring to you as the "war guy" if you aren't anything special in regarding war to them? What's the point if your battle skills are second to even the gods of beauty, music, and meteo?
