Oh no

  1. I mean I was gonna say Hercules did have a ton of problems.... Like ya not fucking his mother, but having one of the most spiteful goddess against you and murdering your family might be up there

  2. There once was a man called Oedipus Rex You may have hear about his odd complex His name appears in Freuds index Cus he Lllllloved his mother!

  3. His rivals used to say quite a bit That as a monarch he was most unfit. But still in all they had to admit That he loved his mother.

  4. Oh Freud, thanks for doing an ungodly amount of cocaine and projecting your Oedipus complex on all of us. What a legend

  5. I think it's okay to call him Hercules, as long you call his father Jupiter. Call Hera Juno, Athena Minerva, etc. It's inconsistency of one character having the Roman name and all the others Greek that bugs me.

  6. In the best known version of the myth, Oedipus was born to King Laius and Queen Jocasta of Thebes. Laius wished to thwart the prophecy, so he sent a shepherd-servant to leave Oedipus to die on a mountainside. However, the shepherd took pity on the baby and passed him to another shepherd who gave Oedipus to King Polybus and Queen Merope to raise as their own. Oedipus learned from the oracle at Delphi of the prophecy that he would end up killing his father and marrying his mother but, unaware of his true parentage, believed he was fated to murder Polybus and marry Merope, so left for Thebes. On his way he met an older man and killed him in a quarrel. Continuing on to Thebes, he found that the king of the city (Laius) had recently been killed, and that the city was at the mercy of the Sphinx. Oedipus answered the monster's riddle correctly, defeating it and winning the throne of the dead king – and the hand in marriage of the king's widow, who was also (unbeknownst to him) his mother Jocasta. Years later, to end a plague on Thebes, Oedipus searched to find who had killed Laius, and discovered that he himself was responsible. Jocasta, upon realizing that she had married her own son, hanged herself. Oedipus then seized two pins from her dress and blinded himself with them. Source: Wikipedia.

  7. This mediocre meme template doesn't even work here. Its literally being stated in the image that some rough shit happened to Oedipus. It's not subtext. FFS.

  8. Ya but there's a huge difference between being able to infer that this guy's life was rough then knowing the dude murdered his father than married his mother and had children with his own mother to which when they found out she hung herself and he stabbed his own eyes out with needles. You can't assume everyone knows that myth cause not everyone does

  9. That play with thing? Isn't magara the daughter of king Creon? I mean you'd think that she would treat this horrible tragedy her family went through as more then just some play
