All modern Military vs gods(Greek Mythology)
@hypnos0929: Ah fair enough, knew it had to be something like that, cause Nova's respect thread on Ares paints him as a complete bad***, so it would be weird for him to be affected by simple things such as regular sword n spears when he's done a ton of cool stuff, even soloing the Titans in one instance.
@wolfrazer: lol Ares couldn't solo one Titan let alone them all. He was chained to a mountain by two demigods and Zeus told him out of all the gods he hated him the most and the only reason why he got to live was because he was the son of Zeus
Different City-States had different mythos. Most of the "Ares is a scrub" stories come from Athenian lore. Sparta and Rome for example, didn't share this belief.
@zetsumoto: Rome had Mars, who was actually considered a lot different from Ares. Mars was much more different and had almost a completely different personality and lacked the title of god of war.
As for different city states good point but I was referring to what I've read in the Iliad
IF the Greek Gods are NOT present in this fight( which I'm pretty sure they are) our modern technology and weapons should best the Mythical Beasts of Greece. :-)
Except, Typhon and the Giants and the Titans......and the Hundred Handed Ones and th---
You know what we lose. Greek Myths take it.
@hypnos0929: As I said, in one instance he did destroy the Titans.
"Ares, destroyer of the Titanes, his father's champion, who lifts a proud neck in heaven, still holding that shield ever soaked with gore."

But I mean, we don't have to take that one really. His other feats should suffice, still Greek Myth should win anyway regardless.
IIRC, Greek gods were fully immortal. However, they were limited to Greece as the Greeks didn't see them as Universal gods.
In some version of when Typhoon attacked Olympus most of the gods abandoned it, left to Egypt with animal heads and the Egyptians worshipped them which according to Greeks is where the Egyptian gods came from and then you consider Princess Andromeda was the princess of Ethiopia which is a real country in Africa. And Poseidon did send a sea monster there.
