The three brothers would be re-united in afterlife, for after they died they were made judges in the Underworld. It was their task to judge the dead in order to assign where their placement was in the Underworld based upon the merits of their life. However, King Minos did not fulfill his vow to Poseidon; he kept the majestic bull for himself and sacrificed a different one to the god. Angered by King Minos' disrespect, Poseidon plotted to punish him for his arrogance and hubris. In accordance to some versions of the myth, it is Poseidon who punishes Minos by instilling a passion within the king's wife, Pasiphae, for the bull that came from the sea.

However, according to the Roman author Hyginus, it is Venus Aphrodite who curses Pasiphae, because the Queen had not shown proper piety to the goddess for some time.

The goddess punished her by sending a salacious passion for the majestic bull from the sea. Another version tells how Poseidon, angered by Minos, went to Aphrodite for her help in the matter and she cursed Pasiphae as a favor to Poseidon. Queen Pasiphae, plagued by her divinely inflicted desires, sought the help of Daedalus and Icarus.

For Pasiphae, Daedalus constructed a wooden cow coated with a real cow hide and placed it upon wheels. Daedalus, then, put Queen Pasiphae inside the structure and wheeled her into the meadow that her beloved bull grazed in. It was there that she met and laid with the bull, since the bull thought the wooden cow was real.

It is from this union that the Minotaur was born. Upon seeing the infant, King Minos discovered his wife's bestial affair and as punishment, Minos enslaved Daedalus and Icarus for their parts in the affair, but he left Pasiphae untouched. Pasiphae cared for Asterion and was able to nourish Asterion while he was a bull calf. However, as he grew he became ferocious and monstrous and she was unable to feed or care for him any longer. Asterion was unable to find a suitable source of food, since he was neither man nor beast, and so he started to eat people.

While the construction of the Labyrinth was underway, King Minos discovered that his only human son, Androgeos, with Pasiphae had been killed. Some sources say that he was killed by the Athenians out of jealousy for his skill in the Panathenic Games. A different version of the myth claims that the King of Athens , Aegeus, was angered by Androgeos' victories, and sent him to slay the unconquerable Marathonian Bull.

He sailed against the Athenians and harassed them until they agreed to pay the price for his son's death. King Minos demanded that Athens pay a tribute to Crete of seven maidens and seven youths every nine years. There is some contradiction in the sources about how often these tribute were made, from every nine years to once a year. These tributes would then be placed in the Labyrinth for the Minotaur to devour. In various sources, the tributes or sacrificial victims were chosen by lot from only the most beautiful men and virginal girls.

The Athenians consulted the Oracle of Delphi who instructed the city of Athens to give Minos whatever he demanded. However, according to Catullus, the murder of Androgeos sparked a cruel plague on Athens. It is only when King Aegeus learned that by sending tributes to Crete and obeying Minos' demand that Athens would be saved; he agreed. Theseus, son of King Aegeus, was said to have volunteered for the third tribute of youths. He boasted to his father and to all of Athens that he would slay the Minotaur. He promised that on the journey home he would raise his white sails if he was victorious or have the crew fly black sails if he failed and were killed.

Unable to cope with Theseus being eaten by her half-brother the Minotaur, Ariadne went to Daedalus for help. She begged the craftsman to tell her how one could escape from his Labyrinth. Once he had told her, she raced to tell Theseus before he entered the Labyrinth. Following Daedalus' instructions, she handed Theseus a ball of string to help him find his way out of the Labyrinth. Upon entering the Labyrinth, Theseus tied one end of the string to the door and continued into the maze.

He found the Minotaur in the furthest corner of the Labyrinth and killed him with the jabs of his fist or in other accounts, he sneaks in the sword of Aegeus and slays the Minotaur with it. Unlike the Labyrinth's previous victims, Theseus is able to find his way out, because of Ariadne's gift. Theseus simply follows the thread back through the maze to find his way to the doors. He finds and leads the other Athenians out of the maze and quickly sails off to Athens with Ariadne and Phaedra.

On the journey home, Theseus abandons Ariadne on the island of Naxos and continues to sail to Athens with his intended wife, Phaedra. On Naxos, Ariadne reflects on her actions and naivety of assisting with her brother's murder the Minotaur for Theseus, who she thought would marry her. Instead of marrying Theseus, Ariadne is discovered on Naxos by the god, Dionysos , who she ends up marrying. In some versions of this myth, Dionysos appears to Theseus ordering him to abandon Ariadne, because he intends to wed her. Theseus is overjoyed to be almost home with his new wife Phaedra but absent-mindedly forgets to change the color of his sails from black to white.

His father, King Aegeus, seeing the black sails from afar is overcome with grief and kills himself by jumping off a cliff into the sea. Name: Email address:.

Magneto, and Sabretooth all appear very prominently. Appearances of non-X characters are largely limited to a pair of X-Universe tie-ins. AOA was reprinted in trades again starting in , but with different contents than the last set of trades! Capitalizing on five years of accumulated hints across the X-Men titles, this long-simmering plot exploded to threaten the entire Marvel Universe and resulted in the cancellation of the entire Avengers and Fantastic Four lines of titles, all of which would see relaunch in their own separate continuity.

Onslaught consisted of two framing issues bearing the Onslaught title, a direct crossover in a core of X-Men books and Fantastic Four, and outlying tie-in issues in the X-Men, Avengers, and Spider-Man lines. Characters: Though this event began in the X-Men line, it is a true line-wide event that touched nearly every ongoing title although, Spider-Man is involved only glancingly.

The Fantastic Four play a significant role, and the Avengers figure heavily into the climax. There have been three different printed sequences of Onslaught collections, presented below with their associated issue ranges. However, it adds X-Force 55, which was not collected in paperback.

The main plot of the crossover is driven by a one-shot and subsequent three-issue mini-series, but the action spills into all of the Avengers and X-Men ongoing titles.

Marvel, Silver Surfer, Gambit, Bishop. This continues the Jim Starlin penned saga of the anti-hero Thanos, yet it is a mere mini-series — not a true line-wide event. Thanos next appears in his own series, collected as Thanos: Redemption. The Avengers, having just merged back into the original numbering of their first volume of release, are briskly deconstructed at the hands of writer Brian M.

Bendis and the fractured psyche of The Scarlet Witch. This indirect crossover was centered in The Avengers, though its effects were felt throughout the entire Avengers line of titles. Though the Disassembled tag also affects Spider-Man and Fantastic Four, their crises do not directly tie into the main Avengers storyline in the main book and the titles of its three biggest heroes. Though this saga does not touch the X-Men, it can viewed as an extended prologue to the upcoming House of M crossover.

Definition

Civil War splintered the Avengers flagship just two years after they had been re-assembled, and just months after a decimation of the entire X-Men line. It also meant instituting an actual ideological divide between characters and fans that could not be easily resolved with a handshake at the end of the event. All the risk paid off. Civil War is a rich, multi-layered event that brought out the best in nearly every book it touched, and turned The Avengers into a diverse multi-book line to equal the X-Men. The X-Men play an extremely limited role in Civil War, as they were still dealing with the ramifications of Decimation.

Planet Hulk is collected in hardcover and paperback , including issues and Giant-Size Hulk. Next, World War Hulk is available in hardcover and paperback , which also collect an Aftersmash one-shot.
