Overheard (mythology)

I recently listened to a little boy and his mother (I assume it was a little boy, and his mother) talking about a book on Greek mythology.

"What is she the god of?"
"That's Athena. She's the goddess of wisdom."
"What's that?"
"It's like science."
"What is he the god of?"
"That's Zeus. He's the king of gods . . . and men. He's the head honcho. Like Optimus Prime."
