Storyboard Text

  • Cronus severed his father's genitals and threw them into the ocean. In the now foaming and churning water grew a lovely goddess named Aphrodite.
  • Zeus knew that this beautiful goddess would be a threat to the welfare of Olympus. He ordered her to be married at once, by his son Hephaestus, in effort to solve conflicts over her.
  • Aphrodite is well known for her numerous love affairs that have resulted in many off-springs. Her closest love affair with Ares made Hephaestus furious.
  • Hephaestus used his fine crafting skills to create an unbreakable net and trapped the lovers in it while they were in bed. He then dragged them to Olympia and demanded punishment from the Gods' for the two lovers.
  • The Gods laughed at Hephaestus' foolishness and the sight of the naked lovers.
  • Things between Hephaestus, Aphrodite, and all of her affairs went back to as they were before. Hephaestus had to learn to accept Aphrodite's adultery.
