Did Medusa control the sea monster?

Original Answer: No, she didn't because she couldn't control a sea monster, and she isn't alive because Percy Jackson cut her head of in the first book (the lightning thief). Response: I really hate to flame, but Percy Jackson annoys me SO much. So to the person who made this message: PERCY JACKSON IS F-A-K-E! It's a STORY! Improved Answer: It was only a coincidence that Perseus had to fight Medusa and the sea monster simutaneously. The sea monster was sent by Posiedon to take Andromeda, a princess, away from a king who had defiled him. And even if Medusa had been able to control that sea monster, she had died before Perseus fought the sea monster. Comment: Hope that helps! =D ~Ethan

So young Andromeda was chained naked to a rock in the middle of the sea. Then along came Perseus fresh from slaying the Gorgon Medusa. Perseus was attracted by Andromeda's beauty and made the king and queen promise that if he saved Andromeda that he could marry her as well. Then Perseus went to destroy the monster by skimming the water to confuse it then chopping of its head.
