    I think if we're talking about what they got from killing the dude, Zeus got the raw deal. If we separate the whole king of the gods thing, he gets birds, clouds, and lightning, which is kinda cool I guess, but Poseidon gets all the ocean shit, which I guess includes all the mythical shit too, like kracken and such. Hades gets Cerberus and also to control all the dead people.

    Actually, Poseidon wins by virtue of him having no fucking responsibilities whatsoever. Zeus has to deal with all the other gods being annoying as fuck, (particularly Hephaestus, the whiny bitch) while Hades has to deal with every pseudo-hero come a-crying "my love died, give me a challenge so that I can bring her back, a-bloo-hoo-hoo," Poseidon just gets people praying for him to not fuck up their ships.

    so what is the question

    I'm very confused by this

    did any of those three gods have a rough deal and if so, which one(s)

    well Poseidon got a lot of inclement weather and Zeus just turned into a goose and raped a lot of really easy human women

    Hades got millions of damned souls to command as he pleases

    I don't see why this is a particularly difficult decision

    see this is what I'm saying but FAYNOR thinks that hades got owned

    I don't know... Couldn't you just avoid the sea?

    Now Hades is a little bit more difficult as he'll just keep on sending zombies & skeletons towards you.

    Poseidon is one of the few greek names I like less than the roman version

    Poseidon sounds dorky, neptune sounds sweet

    I think I give it to hades, cuz he got to bang persephone, who if the matrix movies are anything to go by, was fucking smoking hot

    Faynor is right

    a phrase a man can utter but once in his lifetime to be sure

    Now which is better - Fig Newtons or Oreos?

    So, maybe I'm crazy, but did Poseidon also get control of the rivers of the Underworld? What with them being bodies of water? I could swear I read something about that as a kid.

    Anyways, Hades is the richest of them all. I know he gets all the riches of the Earth under his domain, what with them being in the Earth. At least he's gettin' paid for his efforts. What does Poseidon get? To tip over a couple boats and knock a couple guys off their horses?

    I guess what I'm saying is that Hades is clearly a playa, which puts him above Zeus and Poseidon.

    We don't even care... whether we care or not...

    hades controls the power of death itself how is that not equal or greater cool-value as controlling water

    no he does not

    the fates control death

    hades just gets to deal with dead people

    the fact that there even was a poseidon is because of the importance that the greeks placed on sea travel and lifestyle, since they are right on the water there

    so it might not seem terribly cool to us but if you were always looking at water and it was likely to fuck you up somehow you'd probably want to make some sacrifices to it

    And the fellow who actually does the deadening is a totally other fellow, Thanatos. Anyways, Poseidon got all the best nymphs. I mean, sky nymphs and earth nymphs got nothin' on water nymphs.
