Life on Earth used to be a dangerous place with mindless creatures lurking its land. Zeus did not like what Earth had become. He just wanted one perfect species that would be capable of creating a peaceful place and for others, one that can communicate. All he wanted to do was to create a somewhat mirror image of a mortal god that would later be called man.
Weeks later, he decides to tell the rest of the gods at Olympus, but there was one god that did not like this idea at all. This was the god of grief and hatred, ruler of the underworld, Hades.
Hades begins to threaten Zeus. His threats got worse and worse until he disappeared into the underworld with his last words saying “You just wait Zeus! I’ll have this world destroyed!” “Even if you do destroy the Earth I will find another way!” shouted Zeus. Hades sends a giant fire hurling towards Earth.
One million years later, right as the lone planet is cooling down; Zeus is finally complete with his hard working project. He successfully completed the first human being. Zeus gently sends him down to Earth as he calls for his guardians to look after him. And thus, the first man sets foot on the once treacherous planet. Zeus can already see the future in his eyes from the Stone Age to the Space Age. It was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. Years later, Zeus’s son is finally ready to give light to earth and guide human kind to evolve into something better.
From that day on, the Gods have taken human kind under their wing protecting them from anything beyond their reach. For the first time in billions of years, planet earth has become peaceful. And at that moment, Zeus found that nobody is perfect even if you created them to be.
