TITANOMACHY AND OLYMPIC GODS
THE TITANOMACHY WAR
THE CHILDHOOD OF ZEUS
As Cronus was afraid of the power of his hecatronchy and cyclop brothers, Gaia advises Zeus to use the strength of his "uncles" and thus defeat the Titans. In Tartarus, he talks to them saying "I respect them. I know that my father Cronos betrayed them and arrested them, but now I release them on condition that they fight by my side". As a way of thanking them for being released, the cyclops give Zeus the power of lightning.
In the first attack, from the top of Mount Olympus, Zeus sends a deadly lightning bolt at the Titans and at that moment the whole planet is shaking. On one side, the hecatronchians pulling stones from the mountain and playing on the titans. On the other hand, the Titans fighting with the other gods. After years of war, the Olympians were already reaching victory, but the Titans use their last weapon and from the depths of Tartarus comes out a colossal and dark beast, Typhon, an extremely strong creature that challenges Zeus, a final challenge for the gods to reign over the universe. Hours passed between Tifão and Zeus, Zeus dominates the fight and with a very strong ray hits Tifão, who falls again in the depths of Tartarus together with the other titans, Anyway, Zeus becomes the king of the universe. Victorious, the "Olympians" banish the Titans to Tartarus, along with Erebo.
