History's most powerful Spartans

In honor of ”300,” we look back in time at some memorable Spartans

Posted on

Helen of Troy
”The face that launched a thousand ships.” In other words, totally hot.

King Leonidas
(Gerard Butler, 300) Little-known fact: Beards grow faster in the shade.

Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri
(SNL cheerleaders) Only warlike when provoked.

Spartacus
(Kirk Douglas) Not technically Spartan, but, oh, like you knew that.

John Spartan
(Sylvester Stallone, Demolition Man) Like RoboCop! But different!
