Oh Pan. Try harder.
Due to a short attention span and a general lack of foresight, it’s very rare that I can honestly say this, but… FUCKING CALLED IT.
Heh, I knew it. I figured this out back in November of 2010 when rereading the archives. Now that this is out of the bag, I wonder how the Zeus is gonna react (if anything) to Hades claiming Caitlyn as well. 😛
I’m slightly hoping the baby will sound like James Woods now. Love that voice!
I’d always guessed that Cait’s second baby was something to do with Hades, but I’m slightly ashamed that I wasn’t able to figure out how its power would manifest itself. It seems so obvious now…
Hades was the odds on choice. I didn’t think he’d have let himself be left out of the party when both of his other ruling brothers were getting some.
Liked the Hercules reference. I heard a possibly apocryphal story that Herc’s original nemesis was slated to be “Loki” until someone who could mythologically tie their shoes saw that and mentioned Loki was in the wrong pantheon. The character design was too far along to change, so we get Hades by way of Loki.
If anyone with any sense about mythology worked on that movie, they would have realised that “Hercules” is the Roman name for him, so since it’s set in Greece he should have been “Herakles”; his mother was NOT Hera – she actually hated him; and Hades was not evil and didn’t try to take over Mount Olympus – why would he want to rule the small realm that is the mortal world when he ruled the souls of every man and woman that had ever lived?
I’m pretty sure the Loki thing isn’t true. Disney does a crap ton of research and they were probably well aware that most people know of Hercules and not Herakles. Especially since there was a fairly popular TV show using that name running when the movie was released.
I rather enjoy the movie for what it is with all it’s inaccuracies. I’m preeeety sure Hades, Poseidon, and Zeus all wanted to rule the heavens and Hades was fucked over because he was the oldest and technically it was rightfully his. True, he’s not inherently evil*, but a tad upset with Zeus? Sure. Cause Zeus is a dick.
*In fact he seemed like the least douch-y of all the gods.
Not to nitpick, but I noticed that Pan’s shirt changes from a turtleneck in panel 2, to a crew-neck in panel 4, and back to a turtleneck in panel 5. Though, it appears he can manifest his own clothing, so I guess it’s possible that’s exactly what happened.
That was not the intention when I drew it. It’s supposed to be a turtle neck throughout.
You WISH James Woods was in charge of the underworld! XD
