Mythological Easter Eggs Hiding In Pop Culture

List Rules
Vote up your favorite Greek mythology Easter eggs from pop culture.

Greek mythology remains popular thousands of years after the stories were first penned. Modern culture is filled with retellings that include everything from the Percy Jackson books to Disney's Hercules; however, some pop culture references to Greek mythology are more obscure than others. 

The weird and wild world of Zeus and the Olympians is so embedded in Western culture that it can manifest without most people even noticing. Some of the most popular stories would hardly be as clever or visually striking without the details they borrowed from the ancient Greeks.
