Storyboard Text

  • No Way!!
  • Zeus came to lust after Metis and chased her. Metis tried to escape, going so far as to change her form many times. He continued his pursuit until she gave in.
  • An Oracle of Gaea then prophesied that Metis' first child would be a girl but her second child would be a boy that would overthrow Zeus. Zeus took this warning to heart.
  • When Zeus next saw Metis he flattered her and put her at her ease. Then with Metis off guard Zeus suddenly opened his mouth and swallowed her. This was the end of Metis.
  • After a time Zeus developed the mother of all headaches. Zeus howled so loudly it could be heard throughout the earth.
  • The other gods came to see what the problem was. Hermes realised what needed to be done and directed Hephaestus to take a wedge and split open Zeus's skull.
  • Out of the skull sprang Athena, fully grown and in a full set of armour.
