Icarus Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

Nintendo has a video game series called Kid Icarus. It started in the 80s, and now it's rocking out the 3DS.

Check it out: Icarus is the name of a wrestler. What do you think? Does this guy know how to fly?

Icarus I and II are names of spaceships in the movie Sunshine, directed by Danny Boyle of Slumdog Millionaire fame.

In the James Bond movie, Die Another Day, there's an orbital space weapon named Icarus. Next time an orbital space weapon name is up for grabs, Shmoop calls dibs.

One of the X-Men uses the superhero name Icarus. As you can probably guess, he's got wings.

The Icarian sea is named after our boy. In fact, that's where he fell to his death.

Icarus is the name of one of the robot fightin' ships in the Matrix trilogy. Just like the original Icarus, though, the ship is destroyed.
