The Titans the most well-known of the Greek gods and goddesses laid the foundation for the superheroes we enjoy today. Start by introducing the religion of ancient Greece. The ancient Greeks were polytheisticmeaning they worshiped multiple gods. They also told many stories myths about the gods, which were meant to guide human behavior and teach about the relationship between gods and humans.
Zeus, the thunder god and ruler of the gods Poseidon, sea god Hades, god of the underworld Persephone, queen of the underworld Hephaestus, god of fire blacksmithing Hermes, messenger Apollo, god of light, linked to Helios, the sun Dionysus, god of wine and fertility Hera, wife of Zeus, My favorite superheroes of the gods Aphrodite, goddess of love In addition to gods and goddesses, the Greeks included many heroes in their myths.
Heroes were either human or demigods the offspring of a human and a god or goddess. Here is another student-friendly source for basic information about Greek gods. Separately, teachers may want to reference History.
Next, introduce selected myths. A good source written for young people is Kidipede: Even when written for children, Greek myths contain mature content such as violence and death; curses; sexuality, polygamy and infidelity; slavery and human sacrifice.
It is highly recommended that you preview myths to assess their appropriateness for your students. The following myths are recommended choices, since they have clear take-away lessons, and because violent elements and other mature content are a bit less prominent though certainly still present.
Decide whether you will allow students to access these links themselves, or whether you will print out the stories ahead of time. How are male characters different from female characters?
Do males and females have comparable powers and status? How are heroes different from gods and goddesses? What themes do you find are common to various myths?
What weaknesses do the characters have, and what mistakes do they make? Do any of the characters redeem themselves after making mistakes? Next, discuss how themes present in Greek myths are echoed by modern superheroes and associated fiction, comic books and movies. As students discuss and research popular movies and comic-book characters, they are likely to encounter mature material including violent content and skimpy superhero attire.
Before proceeding, preview content and consider whether direct Internet access is appropriate for your students. Consider superhero films from the past few years that have been based on DC Comics and Marvel Comics characters: Wolverine ; X-Men:Permalink.
