CORRECTION: I said Hercules married Athena when he got to Mount Olympus. It was actually his half sister Hebe! So sorry for the confusion! Thanks for watching, SoloFam! Don't forget to hit that LIKE button, join the notification squad, and follow my social medias for all the contests! :)

I didn't like the Disney version because they Christianized it by adding a gospel style music track - GOSPEL style MUSIC! - and made Hades an ugly Satan-esque villain when he wasn't that at all. And the Greek underworld isn't a Christian Hell. Hades was just the brother of Zeus and Poseidon (and should be as handsome as they) who got the largest realm of all - that of the dead - and who stayed monogamous to his wife, Persephone.

Most of the problems Hercules had mostly been Heras fault. I mean she did control him to get him to kill his wife and two children.

But Hercules in this story was a cooler dude than he was in the version Overly Sarcastic Productions read from. Where as that version just straight kills his music teacher out of annoyance and was an all around douchbag. But in this version he does it all on accident and is ashamed of killing a slave on accident as well.

Late to the party, but in every myth I've read about his death and resurrection he married Hebe, the daughter of Zeus and Hera(his half sister) which kind of helped end Hera's hatred towards him, the only thing that has Heracles and Athena as a couple is a children's book that depicts Olympus as a school and the Gods, Goddesses, and other notable figures as students where Athena is the only one who is referred to as the daughter of Zeus.

Another correction: Heracles never married Athena, and Athena was never married; she's a virgin goddess. Heracles actually married Hebe, the goddess of youth. Still his half-sister but you know, gods will be gods.
