the great and powerful

Thesis Statement

In Joel's Skidmore's Mythweb.com, Zeus is the most significant god in Greek Mythology that portrays an image that is supreme and unbeatable but also gentle when necessary.


Zeus wanted to overthrow his own father Cronus. Zeus had brothers and sisters that were jealous of how powerful he was compared to them.


For example, Zeus was the leader of everyone, even his mother and father.


“Zeus also was accorded supreme authority on earth and on Mount Olympus (Skidmores)”.


This shows that Zeus is supreme and unbeatable. Also it is showing that he is one of the most powerful people around.


Lastly, Zeus was so powerful to everybody, that’s why he is the most significant out of the other gods and goddesses.
