Character description

The most famous Hercules is the Romanized name of the Greek Heracles, who was a son of Zeus and the human woman Alcmena, to whom Zeus appeared in the form of her husband. So strong was the infant Hercules that when Hera, Zeus' jealous wife, sent serpents to kill him, he strangled them. He had many adventures, most famously his Seven Labors for Eurystheus, king of Mycenae. His attibutes are a club and a lionskin.
