Baby Hercules

Hercules was born on Mount Olympus, a child of Zeus and Hera. All the gods celebrated, except for Hades. He plotted to overthrow Olympus. Then, when Hades asked the Fates about it. They said that if Hercules fought in the war, he would lose. So Hades sent Pain and Panic, his imps, to turn Hercules mortal, and kill him.

Pain and Panic got so far as turning him mortal, when they were interrupted by a pair of mortals. They found Hercules, before he drank the last of the potion that turned him mortal, so he retained his godly strength. Hercules was taken in by these mortals, while Zeus and Hera wept.

ChildhoodEdit

Hercules

Hercules as a teenager.

As a young child growing up, Hercules was always a misfit. His strength proved to make him more destructive then helpful. Other children wouldn't play with him, and Hercules was called "Jerkules". In the movie, when he and his mortal father are going to the market, Hercules accidentally demolishes the whole market, after attempting to catch a discus that pulled him into a column. A pot seller called him a freak, and Hercules, ashamed, returned home with his mortal father. Shortly after arriving, his mortal parents reveal the truth, that he came from Mount Olympus. Hercules, stunned by this news, travels to the temple of Zeus to learn more. He learns that he can only become a god once more if he becomes a true hero, Zeus tells him to seek out the Satyr Philoctetes who is the trainer of heroes and so off Hercules goes

The Myth Behind the CharacterEdit

In Greek Mythology, Hercules, or Heracles (Herakles) is son of Zeus and the mortal Princess Alcmene of Thebes . Because of Zeus's unfaithfulness, Hera hated Heracles. Heracles had also a twin half-brother, Iphicles. Iphicles was the son of Alcmene's mortal husband Prince Amphitryon (he's also Alcmene's brother), while Heracles was a son of Zeus.

Heracles was originally named Alcides, but his names changed to mollify Hera. This was unsuccessful.

Only a few monthes after birth, Hera sent two serpents to kill him and his half-brother. Heracles however throttled them, and was found by his nurse playing with them as if they were toys.

After accidently kill his music tutor Linus with a lyre, he was sent to care for cattle by his foster father. He was visited by two nymphs, Pleasure and Virtue, who offered him the choice of a peaceful life or a severe glorious life. He choose the latter.

It was later in Thebes that he was rewarded Princess Megara after saving Thebes, and she bore him six sons. However, in a fit of madness brought apon by Hera, he killed his children (In some cases, Megara too). After realizing what he had done, he fled to the Oracle of Delphi. Unbeknownst to him, the Oracle was guided by Hera. He was ordered to serve under King Eurystheus. This caused the 'Twelve Labors of Heracles'.
