Transcript of Hercules
Hercules is a Demi-God, whose father was Zeus. He was originally born a true god on Mount Olympus, but was poisoned by Hades, since Hercules was foreseen to ruin Hades plan to conquer Mt. Olympus, but when Hercules drank the poison, he didn't drink it all, leaving him with his god-like strength.
Hades is the ruler of the underworld, who is accompanied by his minions Pain and Panic, who provide most of the comic relief in the movie. Hates also has Meg, short for Megara, who sold her soul to Hates.
