Plasma love! :ahoy:

I was just looking up things about plasma last night.

How Hot Is Lightning?

Technically, lightning is the movement of electrical charges and doesn't have a temperature; however, resistance to the movement of these electrical charges causes the materials that the lightning is passing through to heat up. If an object is a good conductor of electricity, it won't heat up as much as a poor conductor. Air is a very poor conductor of electricity and gets extremely hot when lightning passes through it. In fact, lightning can heat the air it passes through to 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit (5 times hotter than the surface of the sun). When lightning strikes a tree, the heat vaporizes any water in its path possibly causing the tree to explode or a strip of bark to be blown off.

Thanks for your insight! And yet people can survive this somehow

Zeus is very angry it seems...

Hera: ZEUS! DID YOU SLEEP WITH THE MORTALS AGAIN??!!

Zeus: Honey, I can explain...

(Meanwhile, among the mortals)

Human #1: What the hell is going on up there

Human #2: Zeus fucked the daughter of the king again i guess

Given how Zeus' offspring usually ended up being superheroes/ doing something useful the mortals are probably happy
