The word means the strengthening of an object which refers back to Vulcan's forgery skills that made everything better. For people to bring this word up is common because of the words power to make a greater of something. The situation the word is used in helps the object being described or will be in the future seem better and or stronger
From the movie "Holes" the character Sam represents an allusion of Hephaestus. With his famous quote "I can fix that" comes the strengthening of a certain object in this case the roof which he makes better and stronger. Also he is not exactly socially accepted... just like Hephaestus

Charles Goodyear discovered the process in which removing sulfur from the rubber then heating it, it would retain its elasticity.This process was vulcanization and it made rubber water and winter proof.The idea of improving an object to make it better comes from Vulcan and is the reason for the name of this process.

Rintala 5th Hour AP Lang, "Narcissus",
Webby, 12 Feb 2013. Web. 18 Nov. 2013 http://rintala-allusions.weebly.com/narcissus.html
She was so perfect. Never before have I seen a girl with so much beauty... so much elegance. Seeing her walk on earth made me question logic itself. How can someone who basically resembled a goddess, maybe even Aphrodite herself, be in my midst? I had no clue, but by then, she was gone. Only to be seen in my dreams countless times after.
Prometheus was punished for his "crime" by being chained against a rock for all eternity, his liver being eaten by vultures for the rest of his life, which was forever.Prometheus's symbol is commonly know as fire. Also Prometheus did not have a roman counterpart name for reason unknown.
There once lived a bunny at the end of the Vain street who's name was Echna. She was so beautiful and sang so well that she could get anyone to fall in love with her, but she only wanted one other animal.
He also lived on vain street, his name was Narcikus. But, one thing about him was, he was so vain that he only loved himself. Echna sang and sang to him, but being the bunny he was, he rejected beautiful Echna.
As time when on, Echna still loved him but she started to lose her voice from singingto him for too long that she eventually died from a throat disorder. But today, every time someone visits vain street they hear the quiet voice of Ecna singing and humming to a song.
Promethean- the word means to be daringly original.
Ex: Daaaang you are sooo
girl! I love it!
The word isn't often used, but it should because it's a great way to describe someone that is that awesome.The relation it has to Prometheus is the fact that Prometheus was so crazy and daring to steal fire as a gift for the humans, he was daringly original.
Frankenstein is actually a great representation of Prometheus because he gave the people the man that was torturing Frank. Like Prometheus, who stole the fire and gave it to the people, he gave the people the mad professor that created Frank and taught him the evils.
