Those were my responses to him, also. What I wonder, though, is if he was represented this way as a mirror of human behavior, which then provokes a response: either we accept our bad behavior, or we behave differently?
It is interesting to me that you picked out 'passive', especially since Zeus could be brutally aggressive; but then at other times when he should have acted, he could seem to wholly ignore a critical situation.
