Storyboard Text

  • Unbreakable Sword
  • Helm of Darkness
  • Winged sandals
  • Magic Wallet
  • Athena's shield
  • Thanks Hermes!
  • No problem Perseus
  • So Perseus sets out on his long and grueling journey, not knowing where to go or what to do if he finds Medusa and her immortal sisters. Along the way multiple gods help Perseus by giving him gifts.
  • GET HIM!
  • He is given Hades' Helm of Darkness, granting him the power of invisibility, and Athena's shield, allowing him to look at Medusa without being turned to stone. He also encounters the god Hermes, who gives him an unbreakable sword to kill Medusa, and a pair of winged sandals that let Perseus fly. Lastly, a friend of Hermes gives Perseus a magic wallet that can hold any object.
  • What are you doing here???
  • Hermes has already helped tremendously, but he is not done. Hermes gives Perseus a plan that is almost foolproof for finding the Gorgon sisters. There are three other sisters, the Graeae, who know where the Gorgons are. They share one eyeball between the three of them, so all Perseus has to do is take it and ask the location of Medusa in return for the eye.
  • Perseus, invisible with the Helm of Darkness, slays the mortal Gorgon Medusa and flys away with her head in the wallet just as Medusa's sisters awaken.
  • When Perseus arrives in Seriphos, he is told that King Polydectes has been trying to force Danae to be his wife. Infuriated, Perseus storms into the king's castle with the wallet containing Medusa's head to find the king and his friends, one of which is Perseus' grandfather. Perseus pulls out Medusa's head and turns all of the men into stone, fufilling his destiny.
  • Perseus finally goes home to Danae. He is one of the only heroes in Ancient Greek Mythology who lives happily ever after.
