Origin stories are intriguing, and in the entertainment world, they’re usually about superheroes. But how about an origin story about a figure from Greek mythology?

That’s exactly what we get with “Medusa Undone,” and it’s every bit as fascinating as if we were seeing how Spider-Man, Captain America or Thor came to be.
