    The Olympians are almost always portrayed as a highly dysfunctional family. So what do you think keeps them together either from destroying each other due to their feuds or from moving away from each other?

    Zeus-Herc #10 established he has cheated or abused just about every major if not also minor Olympian during his reign so none could be trusted to come to his aid as a mortal.

    Hera-Hates all of Zeus's offspring which must be at least half of Olympus. Her own children hold little of any loyalty toward her.

    Ares-Is hated by about all of the Olympians and hates them in turn.

    Pluto-Constantly trying to take over and being the Olympian "god of evil" is not well liked by the other Olympians and the same for the other way around.

    Neptune-"Aqua Zeus" who has feuded with several of the major Olympians and no doubt still holds grudges to this day.

    Hephaestus-Looked down by the other gods for his deformities and holds a grudge for the other gods for laughing at him.

    We don't know much about the other Olympians, but given the egos they are usually shown I imagine feuding is constant. So what do you think keeps them from collapsing from within.

I would say in general that is pretty close to the myths though. I would say it is some strange sense of family and loyalty. I suppose the whole idea that I may hate this person but others who hate him have to deal with me too. Or something like that.

I mean it sort of fits with Ares view of the Asgardians during Siege too. As soon as he learned the reasons for fighting his brother gods he got really really pissed.

Look Raist bunnies...
