Storyboard Text

  • The king explained to Perseus that there were three sisters two were very ugly but Medusa was most beautiful, however her hair of coiling serpents was so terrible that the sight of it turned men to stone.
  • If you kill the Gorgon Medusa of the snaky locks, and bring me her head you will become a hero!
  • Okay, what must I do?
  • Perseus needed the help of all the gods, and he got it. Athena gave him her strong shield, Hades gave him his helmet that made the wearer invisible., Hermes brought a pair of silver sandals with bright wings. They also gave him a special sword with a curved blade like a sickle.
  • Athena told him he would have to find the Gray Sisters to get directions to the Gorgons. Heremes took him on the first part of the jorney where he took one of the gray sisters eyes to trick them into telling him where the Gorgans lived
  • Perseus now alone flew to the far west and found the Gorgons cave as the Gray Sisters had told him. Once he got closer he saw statues of men that had been turned to stone, this worried Perseus but he kept going.
  • Perseus found Medusa sound asleep except for the whisper sounds of her serpents that were her hair. Silently thanking the gods for the invisible helmet, Perseus backed into the cave watching the reflection of Medusa's head through the mirrored shield. He rose a bit on the winged sandals, raised the sword above him and with one sweeping bow, the curved blade cut off the and snaky head and dropped it into a bag
  • Before Perseus put the head in the bag he slipped some blood witch turned into magical Pegasus. But Perseus was already in the air flying away, Perseus, victories, was gone!
