Creon's role is the king.
Of no country is Creon King. Instead, Creon is King of the city of Thebes. It doesn't come out in the play. But Creon actually is serving as regent. The ruler is supposed to be Laodamas, the son of Creon's nephew Eteocles. But Eteocles is dead, and Laodamas is too young to rule at the moment.
King Creon - 2011 was released on: USA: 2011
Traditionally: Creon for not allowing a proper burial and Antigone for not obeying the king and being rebellious. Although you can feel free to give your own interpretation.
Fear that Creon is trying to take his power and crown as King as Thebes
No, Theban King Oedipus isn't Theban King Creon's son. Instead, he's the son of King Laius and Queen Merope of Thebes. So he's Creon's brother-in-law and nephew.
He was the king.
No, Creon in 'Medea' wasn't the same as Creon in 'Antigone'. In the first case, Creon was the King of Corinth and the father of Princess Creusa. Both father and daughter were killed by Medea, who didn't want to let go of her husband Jason. In the second case, Creon was the King of Thebes. He also was the father of Megara and thereby father-in-law to Heracles. He was killed by Lycus, who was Nycteus' brother. Nycteus was the father of Nycteis, who married Theban King Polydorus. Their son, Theban King Labdacus, was the father of Theban King Laius, who married Creon's sister Jocasta.
No one is Theban King Creon's stepfather in 'Oedipus Rex'. Neither is Creon the stepfather to anyone in the play. But what does happen is future King Oedipus' adoption by King Polybus and Queen Merope of Corinth.
No, Theban King Creon isn't Theban King Laius' brother. Instead, he's his brother-in-law. Laius' wife, Theban Queen Jocasta, is Creon's sister.
Yes, Theban King Creon's family and people discover the true character of their monarch. For example, nieces Antigone and Ismene, son Haemon, and wife Theban Queen Eurydice discover that Creon doesn't feel compelled to honor their ties of blood or their privileges as Thebans of noble and royal birth. The gods discover that Creon doesn't feel honor bound to obey their traditions, rites and rituals. The people of Thebes discover that Creon doesn't feel impelled to recognize their god given rights or lessen their suffering. And the prophet Teiresias discovers that Creon doesn't feel motivated to respect his honesty, integrity and skill in foretelling obstacles and suggesting damage control.

Creon is a brother of queen Jocasta, the wife of King Laius as well as Oedipus (Jocasta's son).

Oedipus distrusts Creon because he feels very threatened by him. He believes Creon and Teiresias are conspiring against him and trying to take his position as king.
That they are his supporters is the way the Creon feels about the elders in Thebes in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.).Specifically, the chorus draws its membership from the most accomplished, respected and senior of Theban citizens. It therefore is there to be supportive to Thebes' ruler, the current king. Theban King Creon notices and appreciates the chorus' support.
Yes, Theban King Creon is the uncle of Theban King Oedipus. He's the brother of Theban Queen Jocasta, who is Oedipus' mother and becomes his wife. So Creon also becomes Oedipus' brother-in-law.
The oracle at Delphi told Creon that the plague on Thebes was caused by the presence of the murderer of the previous king, Laius, and that the murderer must be driven out for the plague to end.In Greek mythology, Creon was the successor to Oedipus as the King of Thebes.
