The adjective "galactic" is obviously that the range of sizes of these gigantas can be comparable to the galaxies (from the smallest to the largest).
Hera: The "creator" of the Milky Way

It is said that the Greek god Zeus, who was unfaithful to his wife, had a son named Heracles (Hercules, for the Romans) of his union with Alcmena. Upon learning, Hera caused Alcmena to carry Heracles in the womb for 10 months, and tried to get rid of him by sending two snakes to kill the baby when she was eight months old. However, Heracles could easily get rid of them by strangling them with their little hands. Heracles turned out to be Zeus's favorite. However, the Oracle said that Heracles would only be a hero, since it was mortal. In order to be an immortal god, he had to demonstrate a bravery worthy of a god.
Once the myth reaches this point, there are two different versions:
- One of them says that Hermes, the messenger of the gods, placed Heracles in the bosom of Hera, while she slept, to suck the divine milk, but when she awoke and realized it, she abruptly separated it and poured the milk, forming The Milky Way.
Una vez que llega el mito hasta este punto, hay dos versiones distintas:
- Another says that Athena, the goddess of wisdom, convinced Hera that Heracles would suck her, since she was a very nice child, but it turns out that Heracles sucked the milk with such violence that it hurt Hera and made her spill the milk.
You could say that Hera was the galactic giantess who created the Milky Way.
