Best Answer

Medusa was one of the Greek monsters known as a gorgon, a vicious beast with sharp fangs, hair of snakes, whose gaze turned men and women to stone. She was once a beautiful Athena priestess, until the day that Posiedon raped her in the Parthenon. The Parthenon belonged to a goddess named Athena. She was so mad at what happened in her temple that she punished Medusa and turned her into a Gorgon.

Answer:Medusa is Poseidon's girlfriend. When Poseidon and Medusa met together at Athena, the goddess of Wisdom's temple, Athena turned Medusa into a monster with hair like snakes. She was very dangerous since anyone who looks at her eyes, they turn into stone. After Medusa's head was chopped off, if you look at her eyes, this time, you become petrified.

Medusa can only hurt some one if they look into her eyes and they will turn to stone.
