Webcomic / Olympus Institute

Go To

"Olympus Institute" is a webcomic about various characters from Greek (and Egyptian) mythology... IN COLLEGE

Gorgon girl Medusa has decided to go back to college, much to best friend Echo's delight and mean girl Aphrodite's chagrin. Here she'll meet various new friends, such as the dark snarky Hades, energetic tomboy Hatshepsut, bully with a hidden soft side Hera, and the handsome yet mysterious Imhotep.


It can be read here on Deviant ART.

"Olympus Institute" provides examples of:

  • Cool Shades: Medusa wears them at all times to avoid turning anyone to stone
  • Crossover Cosmology: Amidst all the Greek deities there are the Egyptian god Imhotep, and fellow Egyptian Hatshepsut, daughter of Amun
  • Genius Bonus: Hatshepsut is at the school because she's "half-divine"; the real Pharaoh Hatshepsut claimed she was fathered by the god Amun
  • Guyliner: Imhotep, fitting for an Egyptian
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently Medusa has turned Echo to stone once before
    • Also how and why Aphrodite turned Medusa into a gorgon, though if it's anything like the myth this may not count
  • Official Couple: Zeus and Hera, Hades and Persephone. It looks like Imhotep and Medusa, as well as Hermes and Echo, are headed this way as well
  • Really Gets Around: Implied with the ever-unfaithful Zeus

How well does it match the trope?
