Which God Do You Fancy?

Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson, opens today, and it is the second movie featuring Hercules to be released this year (the first, The Legend of Hercules, starred Kellan Lutz).

Beyond the obvious (no shirts, please, we're gods!), there is something about gods and their battles that appeals to filmgoers, judging by how many of these tales are made into movies.

It strikes us, however, that it would be very difficult to actually be in love with a god, no matter how many muscles he had. That said, some of the gods are more appealing than others. So if you had the choice, which ancient god would you want for your mate?

Personally, I prefer someone like Hades. Of all the Gods, his story seems to be the most romantic in the modern sense.

@Scarlettleigh: no? Does this clear it up?


@bungluna, I would agree, I mean, it's because he fell in love (or kidnapped and raped, depending on how you interpret the text/how it's translated) with Spring/Persephone that we have winter. One of my favorite stories, too! Plus, he's been played by Ralph Fiennes, who is pretty sexy!

Hephaestus/Vulcan was the only one who was capable of monogamy.

Dionysus/Bacchus looks like he'd have been the frat guy who never quite grew out of it. Sure, he'd be fun- for a while- but it would get exhausting after a short time.

But I think the ideal mate would be Asclepius. My mother always wanted me to marry a doctor!

I know he's not a god but I would have to say Sherrilyn Kenyon's Styxx. That man was seriously hot and totally faithful for centuries. Acheron would be a close second. Just by looking at the myths, I don't think I would choose any Gods as most of them were pretty petty and self involved jerks who liked messing up humans. If I had to choose I would probably take Perseus. He's a son of a god and hero so close enough.

Well, Loki. He is "handsome in appearance, malicious in character, very capricious in behavior, and possessing to a greater degree than others learned cunning"... He also has crazy drunken nights and sexual experience with both gender... He is like the Bad Boy we all swoon over reading romance genre. :P
Eh, but as Kate Daniels thought me, nothing good can come up when dealing with Gods.
But, I would like to hang one night, for a drink or something with Old Coyote, from Patty Briggs' series... ;)

It wouldn't be difficult for me to love a god at all. ;-)

I like Dwayne Johnson and these types of movies, so I can't wait to see Hercules.

I like Loki, he has that naughty bad boy thing... Thor is pretty hot too :) Always the thought Ares from Xena was hot too!)
