Capaneus

Capaneus (charioteer) In Greek mythology, one of the Seven against Thebes; son of Hipponous and Astynome, married to Evadne, and father of Sthenelus. Capaneus boasted that not even Zeus could stop him from entering Thebes. The god, of course, sent a thunderbolt and killed Capaneus. Some accounts say Asclepius, the god of medicine, resurrected Capaneus. Other accounts say he was the inventor of the scaling ladder.
