And then, there's MEDUSA MAE'S GRAVEL EMPORIUM.
I've thought for a long time that there is a pretty good character in Medusa. She's basically a young girl who makes the mistake of being raped by Poseidon. This happens in the temple of an easily insulted Athena who turns Medusa into a monster, complete with scaly skin, a beard, brass wings and claws, and, of course, incredibly unmanageable hair. Not only that, but she is sent to live on an island with her new "sisters," the horrible and immortal Gorgons.
And that's that. The island is Outside the Edge of the World, which is pretty far off the beaten track. Medusa wasn't out terrorizing the livestock, or eating sailors, or really doing anything other than wishing that she could actually give birth to her two kids, Chrysaor and Pegasus (apparently, they were trapped inside her when she was monstered).
Then, one day, Perseus is asked to bring an elaborate gift to the king's wedding. He's pretty poor, and says, sarcastically, that he could as easily bring back a Gorgon's head. The king, who is kinda eager to bump Perseus off, says "Deal." Since Medusa is the only one of the Gorgons who is mortal, she's the target. He gets kitted up by Athena (who is not letting the temple thing go), and he's off.
Doesn't that make you want to know what Medusa's take on all of this was?
Not that any of this feeds into this attempt at a Fist-a-Cuffs fighter.
