Myth…ology Island?

The latest PCB post by Shark Boy is hinting that the Creators are working on a completely new island… and they want us to guess what it will be! What can you gather from this sneak peek?

The title of the image sneak peek is ”mythologyChars”, which seems to mean that this mysterious new island will be known as Mythology Island! Therefore the image title is probably short for ”Mythology Island Characters”.

Most of you have probably noticed Hades (a new Poptropica Creator making posts around the PCB) in the sneak peek, with white skin, skull sceptre, skull tiara, and green robes! Looks strangely suspicious… do you think he’s a hero or villain?

To the right of Hades is a Greek/Roman female warrior equipped with a pointy golden spear and golden battle helmet with pink fluffy feathers on top. Her robes are white with a hint of pink. Who do you think she is?

We’re excited to see this ‘Mythology Island’ release in the future – share your opinions about what it might be like in the comments below!

    Awesome post, Hijuyo! Hades is evil. Who else wears skulls(Well, girls at my school do but ya know…)? Plus, god of the underworld pretty much gives it away… The Roman Girl on da right is… IDK. I am not a Mythology person so yeah…. I WUV the SPEAR!! It’s so shiny….O_O

  2. happy sponge says:

    I love mythology I know lots of stories and myths so this island is definitely gonna be my fav and a snap 😉 . Hades is evil he wants to kill all the other gods so ya probably evil. The other one looks like a warrior probably a gladiator of some sort

  3. Ewill#123 says:

    They’re gonna ditch RTV again. How sad. They’ll just bail out on us. I wanted to meet hippie dude. Well, this island looks kinda cool. 😦

    Hijuyo: We don’t know for sure. They might still release RTV.

  4. ME says:

    I know he’s got that evil skull thing going on, but I think it’d be really nice if he was a helpful character instead of one that’s not. Hades from the myths wasn’t that bad, actually. Maybe here he could give your poptropican a lightning bolt to throw at the real baddie or something. As for the woman, I’m going to hypothesize she is Athena. She’s got that little hat thing that Athena wears, and the spear too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vienna_Pallas_closeup.jpg

      • Shiny Seal says:

        I read many PJ and the olympians books infact I have a collection of those.anyway,who bought the Mark of Athena and Demigod Diaries?

    • Golden Hawk says:

      Definitely Athena. She’s holding a spear, and she was the goddess of war and wisdom… It’s unlikely that she’d be a warrior, especially if they want to keep the plot accurate, since the Greeks obviously did not have women warriors… They did have female oracles, though.

      • Golden Hawk says:

        By the way, it’s Zeus who has the lightning bolt, not Hades. Hades has the Helm of Darkness, which basically means that once you wear it, no one sees you. Poseidon has the trident. They’re three brothers, and they apparently drew lots to find out who would rule what (underworld, sea, world – not sure about last one) and what special power they’d have.

      • ME says:

        “Then Demeter noticed that Zeus was holding a new thunderbolt, a marvelously wrought zigag lance of lightning, volt blue, radiant with energy. And she realized that Hades, who in his deep realms held all stores of silver and gold, had sent Zeus a special gift. It would be difficult to obtain justice.” (C) Bernard Evslin

      • ME says:

        I had always assumed that Hephaestus or someone like that had crafted the bolts for Zeus, and since Hades had all that ore…

      • silverwolf1 says:

        technically the Greeks had some women warriors. We learned about Sparta where the girls were trained to be tough.

      • silverwolf1 says:

        I thought that Zeus’ lightning bolt was crafted in the Cyclops forges in the sea. That’s what it says in the Percy Jackson series in the first book.

    • Serious Fox says:

      Me,Athena doesn’t wear the warrior hat or whatever. She mostly doesn’t wear a spear either! I don’t think she has Black hair either. Why do you guys thinks she’s Athena?

      • ME says:

        Athena is practically always portrayed with the helmet and spear, seriously just google image search it.
        Did you actually read a description of that, or are you basing your assumptions off your own perception of her?

      • Shiny Seal says:

        Because she really is Athena. don’t you get it?? She’s the goddess of war and wisdom. of course she will wear that!!!(Roman form:Minerva)

    • Orange Tummy says:

      I think it’s new POSTS. Knock Knock and Counterfeit island wallpaper.
      The Knock Knock looks seriously familiar, just a name change and Poptropican:

      Knock Knock ^

      2008 cosmic apartments which-makes-knock-knock -seem-familiar

  5. Brave Moon says:

    Hades could be an in between type of characterbecause every book and movie I’ve seen with Hades in it he basically hates his job so he might be there just to relax or to be on vacation. Plus I think the bad guy is even worse………… Kronos

  6. madgenius says:

    She is definately Athena. I also noticed that the earlier post showing a water themed area seems to be Atlantis, another city of the greek myths, though Atlantis may have been an actual place.

  7. Lyon says:

    I fairly educated at Greek mythology, and Hades is not likely to be evil. He may even help you. The Greek gods were supposedly all on the same time. The only evil people at the time were the Titans. Which were trying to kill the Greek Gods.

    Also I’m not convinced that’s Athena. If it was I think they would make it more obvious. I think it may just be one of the citizens who walks around the island.

  8. Mighty wolf [Neat kiwi] says:

    Hades is actully called Pluto.
    Hades is the underworld.
    Pluto isn’t very evil but he does evil things.
    So I think he is evil.
    The creators want to stick to real mythology I think.

  9. Friendly Gamer says:

    😥 STOP MAKING FUN OF THE GREEKS I AM GREEK 😥 But, there are gonna be evil gods on this island… I don’t like this island its innapropeate…. And Hades is actaully I good guy my Mom is greek and she toled me. So Hades is a good guy, but he turned Medusa into a beast, (Medusa was hade’s wife but, the had a fight)

    Hijuyo: How are we making fun of the Greeks? 😐

  10. ¶░░╫Alice╫░ says:

    Maybe if the girl isn’t Athena she is one of Artemis’ Hunters. And I’m not sure Hades is the bad guy……

  11. White Ice + Dangerous Bird says:

    Ummm,I’m greek and the new island fits perfectly with our mytholody with the 12 Olympian gods so I’ll say that the new island is gonna be about ancient Greece.Btw this is the first time I visit your blog and I really believe that you are going really good!Specially for your age!

  12. White Ice + Dangerous Bird says:

    The man in this pic is Hades (underworld’s god) and the woman is Athena (godess of knowledge and smartness).

  13. silverwolf1 says:

    Well, actually, Athena was the goddess of war STRATEGY, wisdom, and some things i cant remember.

    i cant wait for this island to come out! i love the Percy Jackson series!

  14. silverwolf1 says:

    I hope minor gods and goddesses are in this island too! One of my favorite goddesses is Hestia, goddess of hearth and home.

  15. Friendly Gamer says:

    I saw a comment (which was deleted) making fun of the greeks. not you guys.

    Hijuyo: Oh, ok. It was probably deleted if it didn’t abide by the rules – and that includes no teasing.

  16. silverwolf1 says:

    i think something was stolen from the gods and we have to find it and bring it back.

    I also really really hope that we can customize the outfits of the gods/goddesses (depending on if you are a boy or a girl).

  17. perfect octopus (ruthrose8) says:

    hey! did a mythical island in the 911 see
    MYTHIC ISLAND: you go to a strange island where an anciant wiseman tells you the greek gods have been captured by an evil emperor.2 gods and goddesses are hidden somewhere protected by a strange beast such as centaur,medusa,griffin,pheonix and so on. when you save al the gods exept 2 ,zeus and hercules, you face the emporer you fight him using a weaopon of strenght,courage and beauty combined to defeta him.once you save zeus and hercules you get an island medallion and become a god yourself!

  18. Kamakazi says:

    I reckon Hades will be good, but the bad guy is probably Cronus because he’s usually evil, so u could use something like medusa’s head or icarus’s wings or something to defeat him.

  19. Serious Fox says:

    Guys,Artemis is NOT the goddess of the moon she’s the goddess of the hunt! Do you READ PJ and the olympian series? My bro does,and so far he and me agree that Artemis is the goddess of the hunt. Not the MOON!

  20. hizz42 says:

    yah i read the percy jackson series and i think that the mythology island is gonna BE AWESOME. i just love the pj series and i think that hades will be bad than good.

  21. Quick Fire (Michael) says:

    I’m in 3rd grade and go to a gifted and talented school. (unlike some of the other dumbos up there.) In my class we studied roman,norse,mayn,and Greek mythology.the one on the left is Hades god of the under world. on the right is Athena godess of wisdom,battling strategy, and crafts

  22. Ayano says:

    I don’t think Hades is bad, if you think about it, in the Person Jackson series, he did not steal the lightning bolt or anything, he just feels rejected

  23. Mandy says:

    I think that Hades( Greek Name)/ Pluto (Roman Name) could be the villain. I’m not judging him by his looks. He already proved how evil he was when he kidnapped Persephone ( from the real myths). Then he made her his queen. I think that the lady next to him is Athena, patron of Athens.

  24. hope says:

    The girl by Hades (god of underworld) is most likely Athena (goddess of intellegence and battle). One day Zeus went for a walk and Zeus had a horrible headacke . He went to Heaphestus (lame (the injury) god of fire and craft). So Hephestus took his axe and hit Zeus on the head. Out pops Athena ! From his head ! She is fully grown and dressed in her tunic. With her battle cry! And I learned a lot more than just that in school, too.

  25. Audrey says:

    The guy on the left is Hades, god of the underworld. I think he is not going to be a villian. The woman on the right is Athena, I think, even though she looks more like a female Ares. (No offense Athena.)

  26. I found out, guys!! says:

    hey guys hades is actually a good guy and zeus bad.
    the girl is athena.

    Zeus sends you on a mission to get 5 sacred items. Then when you get them he STEALS them (crazy god)then you will have to go to hades and posiedon they will help you.
    Also athena and hercules will help you but in the end hercules gets turned to stone by medusa. In the final battle with zeus you need poiedon’s trident and the crown of hades!!

    so ya see they are actually good guys!

  27. mlynchrules says:

    I just want to say that the “Percy Jackson and the Olympians” series does not have all the Greek myths correct. While Rick Riordan did a very good job of putting the stories together in a way that would be popular in todays society, they are not all very accurate. I do not think that this island will have anything to do with Percy Jackson, otherwise they would have called it “Percy Jackson and the Olympians Island” lol…but any way it ends up, I am very excited to play this island 🙂

  28. Popsi says:

    @top Hades is not a villain in Greek mythology he is just the god of the underworld. Some things may make him seem evil but he is not he is just another god ruling a part of the world which is the earth and that’s why he lives in the underworld just as Zeus lives in the skys and Poseidon in the seas.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
