Sun Wukong was flying on a cloud one day suddenly he was struck by lightning so he went to find Thor the god of thunder. Thor said Zeus did it so Wukong went to go find Zeus. He took on all of Olympus with ease until Zeus came he was very angry with all of the destruction Wukong has caused.

Here are their last words before the battle began "THIS IS THE LAST OF OLYMPUS YOU SHALL DESTROY',roared Zeus.'HA PUNY GODS WHAT MAGIC DO U HAVE TO MAKE U THINK UR SO STRONG OLD MAN U MUST DIE TODAY!!!!!',yellled Wukong.

Angred Zeus vs bloodlusted Wukong who wins in this epic battle?

This has been done before, I believe.

He then freed his father's brothers, whom Uranus had chained. In token of gratitude, they offered him thunder and lightning. Furnished with such weapons, Zeus can thenceforth command "both mortals and immortals" (Theog. 493-506).

... a monstrous being, Typhon, son of Gaea and Tartarus, rises against Zeus.

"From his shoulders came a hundred snake heads, frightful dragons, thrusting out blackish tongues; and from his eyes.... flared a light like fire," etc. (Theog. 824 ff.). Zeus struck him with this thunderbolts and cast him down into Tartarus.

-- Taken from A History of Religious Ideas Vol. 1

For already in Homer Zeus recovers the splendors and powers of a true Indo-European sovereign god. He is more than a god of the "vast sky," he is "the father of gods and men" (Iliad 1.544). And in a fragment of his Heliades (frag. 70 Nauck), Aeschylus proclaims: "Zeus is the ether, Zeus is the earth, Zeus is the sky. Yes, Zeus is all that is above all."

-- Taken from A History of Religious Ideas Vol. 1

Consciousness of his omnipotence is admirably illustrated in the famous scene in the Iliad (8.17 ff.) in which Zeus makes this challenge to the Olympians: "Then [you] will see how far I am strongest of all the immortals. Come, you gods, make this endeavor, that you all may learn this. Let down out of the sky a cord of gold; lay hold of it all you who are gods and all who are goddesses, yet not even so can you drag down Zeus from the sky to the ground, not Zeus the high lord of counsel, though you try until you grow weary. Yet whenever I might strongly be minded to pull you, I could drag you up, earth and all and sea and all with you, then fetch the golden rope about the horn of Olympos and make it fast, so that all once more should dangle in mid air. So much stronger am I than the gods, and stronger than mortals" (trans. Richmond Lattimore, The Iliad of Homer [Chicago, 1951]).

-- Taken from A History of Religious Ideas Vol. 1

[253] And now his thunder bolts would Jove wide scatter, but he feared the flames, unnumbered, sacred ether might ignite and burn the axle of the universe: and he remembered in the scroll of fate, there is a time appointed when the sea and earth and Heavens shall melt, and fire destroy the universe of mighty labour wrought. Such weapons by the skill of Cyclops forged, for different punishment he laid aside—for straightway he preferred to overwhelm the mortal race beneath deep waves and storms from every raining sky.

-- Taken from Metmorhoses Book 1

"So then, [Zeus] by engulfing Erikepaios the Firstborn [Phanes], he had the body of all things in his belly, and he mixed into his own limbs the god’s power and strength. Because of this, together with him, everything came to be again inside Zeus, the broad air and the lofty splendour of heaven, the undraining sea and earth’s glorious seat, great Okeanos and the lowest Tartara of the earth, rivers and boundless sea and everything else, and all the immortal blessed gods and goddesses, all that had existed and all that was to exist afterwards became one and grew together in the belly of Zeus. After he had hidden them all away, again into the glad light from his holy heart he brought them up, performing mighty acts."

-- Taken from Orphica, Rhapsodies Fragment 167

And to let you know, Phanes is God (Deus).

So in conclusion:

Hesiod's Zeus should win, but Sun Wukong gives him a fight.

Homer's Zeus is beginning to stomp.

Pelasgian Zeus stomps.

Orphic Zeus blinks.

LOL. Olympus stomps Wukong. Poseidon throws around islands like toys, shakes and can potentially destroy a universe (which may be finite or infinite, or may simply equate to a world), fixed gates of bronze upon Tartarus (Hell's Pit) and whose minions swallow and spit the sea out three times a day.

Hera creates the Milky Way without even noticing. Athena is omniscient and and her indestructible shield Aegis has the head of the Medusa embedded within it, so it instantly turns anybody who look at it to stone. Ares (who is supposed to be amongst the weakest of the Olympians) screams with the voice of ten thousand men and turns day into night (which can sometimes be interpreted as being merely darkening the sky).

Of course, I am assuming this is going to be mythology as of the OP, but Sun Wukong defeats Marvel and DC Zeus. Comic versions of Zeus are the only versions of Zeus Sun Wukong can defeat, but it sounds more like mythology in this because Sun Wukong is not a Marvel or DC character, at least from what I know.

The Olympians get none of the respect they deserve here on the vine most of the time. I'm glad to see some sense lol.

If you are speaking of Marvel or DC Olympians, I personally don't have any respect for them.

@Crom-Cruach: Yes, they are overlooked, and some of them rightfully so (Dionysus, Demeter, Hestia, and so on).

@Crom-Cruach: Well, I guess I should, since I have seen and heard a lot of people (on and off the Vine) overlooking them.

Honestly I find popular culture in general when it comes to mythology has no understanding of the scope of the implications of what might at first seem small in mythology. For example a simple phrase like "And God said, let there be light and there was light" has for more reaching implications then most understand if you take in what the existence of light entails.
