The legendary hero

Hercules is the hero of the Disney cartoon of the same name, based on the legend of the famous Greek hero. The son of Zeus and Hera, Hercules was born on Mount Olympus and had a bright divine future ahead of him. But Hades, king of the underworld, is jealous of this happiness and is tired of living in the underworld. The three gods tell him that a prophecy says that one day he will be able to leave the underworld and take control of the Earth thanks to the titans, provided that Hercules is dead at that time. But a god cannot die, so Hades must make him human. For that, his minions make the little baby Hercules drink a potion but he does not finish it and remains partly divine. Not being able to return to Olympus, he is welcomed by a mortal couple who raise him as a normal human despite his superhuman strength. It is only later that he learns his identity and decides to become a great hero in order to prove his worth and be granted the right to find his true family on Olympus.

A hero with Herculean strength

As in the legend, Hercules can show a superhuman strength, so he is represented banding the muscles of his arm to emphasize it. On the body, we can see his sleeveless tunic with a typically Greek fringed skirt and brown leather Spartan sandals. He also wears a blue cape tied to his shoulders and a belt with a golden jewel. He wears a red headband around his forehead and slightly curly red hair. His face is very stylized like in the cartoon with a prominent chin and very marked features especially at the nose.
