I think she's OK although not my favurite. I preffered her to the Athena in the Hercules/Xena series to be true. There she was so bland, just a shadow behind Zeus, running his errands. Not like the vibrant goddess of Homer. Or Saint Seia's Athena - blergh IMO!
Have you seen Andrei Konchalovsky's Odyssey movie where Isabella Rosellini starrs as Athena? Now that's one great interpretation. I also like how she appears in some of the old Wonderwoman stories, strong, fierce and independent yet compassionate. Then there's a sequence of adventures in Thor where Athena and Thor become lovers althogh they are sworn enemies. I red one of those stories ages ago and have been trying to find the rest without success later.
But why can't anyone make her cool and charming - or at least interesting? I hate those boring interpretations of a cold, stiff and upright miss nobody that has been around the last two decades at least. Ppl out there really must find Athena less likable.
