common misconceptions of greek or roman mythology

» Nike & Dike are two different gods. Nike is the goddess of victory & Dike is the goddess of justice

» Hades is the god of the underworld & Thanatos is the god of death

» Persephone isn’t just the queen of the underworld, she’s the goddess of spring

» There’s two goddesses named Thalia, one of the muses, and one of graces

» In Greek, a name like Hekate or Kassandra would be spelled with a K, but in other languages it can be spelled with a C

» In Roman Mythology, Apollo is still Apollo (there many be other wording to how it’s spelt, but it’s still Apollo)

» Hermes could fly without his sandals as they were simply symbols for him

» The definition of the twelve Olympians changes because multiple texts decipher other gods/goddesses as being apart of the twelve Olympians

» The titans were not ultimately bad gods, some would say they were nicer to humanity and never tried to destroy humanity (this idea was popularized by Percy Jackson), and the Olympians attacked first

» There is no “Pandora’s” box, Pandora, who is actually a woman created, actually opened the box after being gifted it on her wedding day

» Not many people worshiped Ares because he was majority of the time on the losing side & he was considered too violent and difficult to have on your side 

» At first Rome’s gods had no appearance until they absorbed more Greek Mythology

» The Trojan War is still being debated as actually happening, there has been debris found that could indicate that there was a siege to the city

» Male demigods tended to have higher-than-average ambition and physical powers, while female demigods (like Helen of Troy) only were gifted with exceptional beauty

»  Death gods were pretty laid back compared to other gods & the only person/god Hades ever killed was Asclepius, but only because Asclepius was bringing the dead back to life & disrupting the cycle of life

I’m generally okay with Sonic’s movie design, but I will say that one thing that bothers me is Sonic’s shoes

It’s not so much that he’s wearing Nikes either, I mean Sonic used to wear Soap shoes, the product placement isn’t surprising. it’s just… you have a giant in the shoe industry like Nike backing your film and THIS is the best you come up with?

Boring, plain red shoes with white laces?

Sonic has some of the most iconic shoes in all of media! They could have come up with a way better design!

I could come up with a way better design!

In fact, I DID!

Using Nike’s own custom shoe maker on their online store, it took me 10 minutes to make shoes that are way more faithful to the look of Sonic’s shoes

I mean, look at the awesome kicks they gave Miles Morales in Spider-Verse!

Like, I don’t get it. HOW did they drop the ball on Sonics shoes so bad!?
