Medusa said she was so beautiful, even more beautiful than Athena and so Athena turned Medusa into a monster so that whenever the Medusa was looked at she would automatically turn them into stone, even herself, but then the Medusa was cheated on so this made the Medusa even more powerful and more angry towards her husband/Greek god. Then the Medusa was killed by Perseus who is a demigod Greek hero who killed Medusa.)

Medusa turned mortals into stone, just by looking at them. Athena had made her so ugly that she would turn any person who looked directly at her into stone on sight.

Yes, Medusa was cursed from the goddess called Athena. Athena got jealous from medusa's beauty because everyone wanted Medusa. Athena decided to curse Medusa. Now Medusa is a monster and has snakes for hair, Medusa got cursed so badly that Athena made the curse that if anyone looks at medusa will turn to stone. This teaches every god not to ever look at Medusa's face and or never to get interested in her.

Theory 1 Medusa was a beatiful mortal that poseidon fell in love with. Her sisters helped her and Poseidon sneak into Athena's temple to make out . When Athena found out, she went into a rage. Not beingable to punish Poseidon, she punished Medusa and her sisters by making them absolutely hideous for the rest of eternity. theory 2 Medusa asked Athena for something and she wouldn't give it to her. So Medusa said she was prettier than Athena. Athena knew that the mortal needed punishment, and she soon found out that Medusa had to gorgon half sisters, so she made Medusa a gorgon as well.

Athena doesn't like Medusa because Medusa once made love to Poseidon in Athena's temple. Athena then turned Medusa and her sisters into the hideous Gorgons.

Medusa was not married. She played consort to Poseidon, but did it while she was committed as a priestess to Athena (and in Athena's temple... Poseidon and Athena weren't friendly). As punishment Medusa was made to look horrifying, like her immortal sisters, the Gorgons, so much so that anyone who met her gaze was turned to stone.
