The first thing you gotta know about Minerva (the Romanized Athena) is that she didn't bother with that lame "birth" thing. Minerva entered the world by kicking open Jupiter's skull, and emerging with a ton of weapons. "Deal with it," she proclaimed. As if that's not intimidating enough, the goddess has an insane skill set: she's a champion warrior, a musical prodigy, and a total brainiac. Where war-god Mars is known for his brutal impulsiveness, Minerva is a tactical genius. No other god would dare take on the combined force of her brains and braun, and Superman should know not to as well.
