Apollo is the god of light music and poetry. His father gave him a chariot that was drawn by white swans. He set off to find and slay the python that guarded the oracle of Delphi. The oracle had told the python that a child of Zeus would come and slay him. He did not believe this because he killed every warrior who tried to rescue her. The oracle was mysterious. She sat on a tri legged stool. She barley spoke to anyone. She only spoke her predictions or shall I call it prophecies. The gods could have easily killed the python with a simple flick of the hand. But Zeus wanted his son to fulfill this task. So as Apollo grew up he was given a silver bow and a quiver of arrows that were as hard and piercing like the suns harmful rays. Then he decided it was time to slay the python and claim the oracle for his own. So he went to the lair of thee python and slayed it. But it was a challenge because he was a young god. Gods grew rapidly the would mature and become adults in a matter of days.

Zeus is the god of thunder. Thor is the god of thunder. Ok they are both gods of thunder but who is stronger? They both have their strengths and weaknesses. Thor is the son of Odin god of everything. Zeus is the son of Kronos titan of the universe. So far its a pretty equal match up. Thor shots thunder out of his hammer. Also he has been defeated many times he has been saved by the Odin force some of his father’s energy. Zeus has never died and has never had to rely on his father because he hates his. To prove this match up has occurred I the marvel comic books before. Thor challenged Zeus, Zeus accepted the challenge then beat Thor senseless with his master lightning bolt.

Zeus is the son of Kronos and Rhea. He was the one who was not eaten by his father. Zeus was forged a lightning bolt by the Cyclopes that could shake the earth and destroy any enemy. Poseidon was forged a trident that could split the seas. Also Hades was forged a helmet of invisibility. Together the beat the other titans with the help of the Cyclopes and their brothers the hundred arm ones. Zeus had chopped Kronos in pieces with his own scythe.
Ares god of war is the ultimate fighter. He is a son of Zeus and Hera he is a merciless god he shows no mercy. His mother strongly dislikes him because every time he is wounded in battle ha runs up to Olympus howling and screaming until he is healed. Gods can be wounded but not killed that is a fact because of the immortal ichor that flows through their veins. This god can control people at anytime. He can even force them to commit suicide he is the most evil god aside from Hades as far as I can tell.

He did some weired stuff during his life it turns out he dated one of the horrible looking gorgans named medusa. She was so ugly she could turn anything into stone aside from an imortal such as gods, titans and nature spirits. Posiedon is such a legendary god I favor him over most other gods.
