Information on the cameo
In Greek mythology, Medusa was a Gorgon, a monster usually shown with venomous snakes for hair; however, depictions vary across media. Upon eye contact with Medusa, an unfortunate individual would turn fully to stone with no method of reversal. She is claimed by most sources to be the daughter of the ancient sea God and Goddess Phorcys and Ceto.
Medusa was slain by the Greek hero Perseus, who thereafter used her decapitated head as a weapon before handing it to the Goddess Athena who placed it on the face of her shield.
Medusa's monstrous form is usually assumed to have been as it was from birth but Roman poet Ovid tells a version of the myth that claims that she was turned into a horrific creature after being raped by Poseidon in the temple of Athena as a beautiful young lady. Medusa was then transformed into an ugly monster as punishment for desecrating Athena's sacred ground.
Appearance in the rap battle
Medusa appeared when Zeus said, "I'm like Medusa: I stone a mother fucker if he looks at me wrong!" Medusa hissed, and then turned Dane Cook into stone when he accidentally looked into her eyes. She appeared again when Thor said, "You tongue kiss your sister! That's grosser than a Gorgon!" She was seen sitting in a bar and getting served a drink.
- The Medusa minifigure is from the tenth wave of the Lego Minifigures theme.
