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

The birth story of Zeus is included in the second God of War video game. Watch it here.

In the '80s, the actor Tiny Lister was a professional wrestler by the name of Zeus. Click here for a video so ridiculous that it demands to be watched.

The huge statue of Zeus at Olympia was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Sadly, it didn't make it through the ages (source).

Zeus has been played by a variety of awesome actors, including Liam Neeson (Clash of the Titans, 2010), Laurence Olivier (Clash of the Titans, 1981), and Sean Bean (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief).

According to Marvel Comics, though Zeus now has white hair, he was originally a redhead (source).
