What was your inspiration for Mother's doomsday mode? The gold with pose gives me really strong greek mythology vibes
Thanks for the question. Mother’s Doomsday pose, within the context of the story, being called a necromancer was inspired by a marvelous sculpture in New York; the one of Atlas supporting the world at Rockefeller Plaza. That has always stayed in my mind since I saw it many years ago. And when reading the script, the first thing I thought of when she became the necromancer was that image. An image of indestructible power and dominance.
The Greek mythology has stumped me - but think more about Mithraism, which is Pre-Christian, where the two most important figures in the legend are Romulus and Remus who were brought up by a she-wolf. Mithraism replaced formal religion and in parallel with that evolved a form of religion of pure science ending the world as we know it.
