I always found it facinating how our modern mythology really isn't that different in its themes from classical and ancient mythology. For example, George Lucas has said more than once that his Star Wars Saga is like a modern mythology; he compared it to The Odyssey, except with light sabres and starships instead of broad swords and sailboats. I thought it was a great analogy! This makes me think: Many people view Superman as the modern American version of Hercules. Well, since human nature really hasn't changed much since Ancient Greece, was there a character in ancient Greek mythology who closely resembles Batman? (I can vaguley remember an episode of the Disney's Hecules cartoon that had a Batman-like character work with Hercules to save ancient Greece from a villian of some kind. Of course, that character was a Disney creation, but it was hilarious to see those two have a Superman/Batman "World's Finest" thing going on! ) My knowledge of ancient mythologies is more or less nonexistant, so I was wondering if anyone else knew if my question had an answer. Also, feel free to open this thread up to discuss other DCAU characters that resemble characters in ancient and classical mythology! (Wonder Woman notwithstanding, of course.) And Thanks!
