Medusa isn't a Greek Goddess, and she doesn't have any powers, except if you mean the 'turn into stone when you look her in the eye' thing. That was only a curse by Athena because Medusa and Poseidon were making love in one of Athena's temples, and Athena is a virgin goddess.

Medusa was a young and beatiful woman; who was one of three sisters called the "Gorgons". Medusa had a thing for Poseidon, god of the sea, and so they had a sexual affair in Athena's temple: a highly disrespectful thing to do. In result, Athena turned Medusa into a terrible, green monster with hypnotizing powers with her eyes and the ability to turn anyone into stone with her eyes and hair: a headful of hissing and poisonous snakes. The other Gorgons have been taking revenge and Medusa has too, and Athena is still really pissed off with Poseidon.

Medusa and her sisters were Gorgons.
