For Gilgamesh? Or do you have another suggestion?
Also, if you're casting a vote for Gilgamesh do you think Enkidu should be an alien/spaceman? Or a Neanderthal?
The original story talks about him being covered in hair and having horns (or something like that). I was saying that it's really a space suit with oxygen tubes and the people of the day didn't know how to properly describe it so they just tried to put it into terms they were familiar with.
Neanderthal? Blech. No way.
Like I said, that was the 'irreconcilable difference' that killed the whole project.
