Medea isn’t the kind of girl that most guys would want to bring home to Mom. Not only is she a sorceress with a thing for black magic, she’s also a total serial killer with many a victim to her name. Most famously, she killed her two sons, after her husband, Jason, left her for a pretty young princess. Sure, Medea had a right to be ticked off—she was the one who’d made Jason famous by helping him get the Golden Fleece—but most people would probably agree that executing your children because of your husband’s betrayal is a bit of an overkill.
