Ancient Egypt

The Egyptians created a vast empire beginning circa 3150 BCE, and achieved many technological advances in mathematics, medicine, art and architecture. The Egyptians used obsidian blades to perform delicate surgeries. (TOS novel: Vulcan's Forge) The ancient Egyptians were particularly noted for their method of mummifying their dead, and for the elaborate tombs created for their rulers. Many of these tombs were discovered in what became known as the Valley of the Kings. The mysterious pyramids of Egypt were still objects of great interested to temporal scientists of the 31st century. (ENT episode: "Cold Front")

The Kingdom of Egypt was ruled by a monarch called Pharaoh. Ramses the Second was one notable pharaoh who ruled for nearly six decades. (TOS episode: "Patterns of Force")

In the late 23rd century, the USS Enterprise discovered a near duplicate of ancient Egypt on planet Zeta Reticuli II. (TOS comic: "We Are Dying, Egypt, Dying")

History

The following is a list of various events in the DC Universe that have taken place in Egypt.

  • Death of The Endless uses the Egyptian Ankh as her sigil. Ironically, the Ankh represents immortality.
  • On Earth-Two an amulet was created in ancient Egypt, which allowed the Pharaoh the ability to control swarms of locusts. This amulet eventually passed down through the ages and came into the hands of Lana Lang, transforming her into the Insect Queen.
  • The unfettered Spectre of vengeance brought the Ten Plagues against ancient Egypt during the time of Moses.
  • Vandal Savage ruled as an Egyptian leader under the name Cheops.
  • The wizard Shazam acted as the Champion of Rameses II circa 1290 BCE.
  • In an alternate continuity, an Egyptian court vizier presented Queen Hatchupset with an enchanted amulet. The enchanted relic housed the mythical power of the Goddess, Isis. In the 20th century, high school teacher, Andrea Thomas discovered the amulet and inherited the name and power of Isis.
  • Martians landed in Egypt thousands of years ago using their shape-changing abilities to impersonate animal-headed Gods of the Egyptian pantheon.

Muppet

Up to date as of February 02, 2010

From Muppet Wiki

C.O.V.N.E.T.'s surveillance of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Muppets from Space.

Egypt is a country on the continent of Africa, internationally famous for its pyramid structures, which have stood for thousands of years.

Cleopatra, an ancient Egyptian ruler, has long been romanticized as the Queen of the Nile, having been featured in countless works of art and literature.

Since 2001, Egypt's version of Sesame Street, Alam Simsim, has been in co-production with Sesame Workshop.

The Global Grover segment on Sesame Street has featured the country in which Grover and his camel feature a video about Egyptian farmlands. Ernie and Bert have also travelled to the country to explore its great pyramids. Their stay was short-lived, as Ernie was quickly spooked by a statue of himself. Their vacation was chronicled in the book Where's the Duckie?

Characters in Muppet productions hailing from Egypt have included Cleopatra's servants in The Muppet Show episode 319 and the crocodile god Rezal-evad-gib, while Gonzo once dressed as an Egyptian mummy for a number in episode 516 and Telly Monster featured as "Telly Tut" on Sesame Street.

Perhaps the most prominently featured Egyptian-related story took place in Don't Eat the Pictures. While on a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, Big Bird and Mr. Snuffleupagus encounter a young prince from ancient Egypt, who has been held prisoner for thousands of years within the confines of relics procured from the country. Ultimately, he is reunited with his parents after an encounter with figures from Egyptian mythology.

Before the first broadcast of Lost in Egypt, the ever growing Egyptian fan base was mainly feeding on available DVDs and P2P shared episodes, which can still be considered as the primary source.

In October 2006, Lost's Season 1 was broadcast in Egypt, and other Arab countries, on Showtime network's TV LAND. After the success and high ratings earned by the show, Showtime bought the rights to broadcast Season 2, which was announced for weekly airings. Season 3 was first broadcast in early 2007 and has since been rebroadcast daily in early 2008, in preparation for the airing of season 4 in the summer.

History

Circa 18,000 BCE, Set's followers created the Serpent Crown, another great object of Setian power. However, the Celestials bombed Lemuria, causing it to be lost. Some Serpent Men survived the resulting Great Cataclysm that sank Atlantis, but received a brutal setback when humans who had migrated from a slave revolution slew many of them and took their land. (These humans had enslaved fleeing Lemurians, who had escaped the sinking of Lemuria. In turn, these Lemurians became the ancestors of the Mongols, Turks, and Chinese.) Set received worship from these humans, who set up the cultures of Stygia and Acheron around 13,000 BCE. Set worshippers at some point summoned the demon Khorus, but the first followers of the deity Mitra turned him into stone.

Set continued his struggles and encounters with other gods. He battled the avian-headed deity Ibis, became a foe of the demon Xka-Ahk, and met with the god Nexxx in Stygia. Oddly, Stygians believed Set had a sister called Isuus.

Later, Vanir adventurers turned Stygia into Egypt.

Ancient Egypt was a long-standing and once-flourishing civilization in northeastern Africa on the planet Earth. People or things originating from Egypt are described as Egyptian.

The civilization built itself around the river Nile over the period of approximately 3,500 years, beginning around 3150 BC with the unification between factions along the Nile.

Nefertiti was believed to be a pharaoh in ancient Egypt, or at least power-shared with her pharaoh husband.

In 2373, throwing himself onto Samantha Delaney's folded space drive weapon in an attempt to stop it destroying Earth, Noel Turner was thrown back to approximately 1350 BC in ancient Egypt. Once there, he discovered what he believed to be an alien threat, headed by Ay, and attempted to stop it. This belief stemmed from the fact no Nefertiti seemed to exist in this timeline, and Turner believed Ay and his cohorts had murdered her to alter the timeline.
In 2374, Patricia Graves, commanding officer of the new Cantabrian-A, discovered a time portal leading to the same time frame Turner was in and entered it. In order to stop the battle and bring the aliens under control, Graves exchanged herself for Turner's safety and release back to 2374; the aliens agreed.
Graves became Nefertiti; the aliens had not murdered Nefertiti, but she simply did not exist until Graves created her. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Where There's A Man Who Has No Voice, There Ours Shall Go Singing")
