Hercules: Man or Myth!!!!

Hercules was born in Thebes also is the son of Zeus, the king of the gods. Zeus's wife Hera did not like Hercules so out of jealousy toward Hercules she sent serpents to do away with him while he was in his crib, they where of no threat to the 7 days old newborn (Hercules) and where strangles by the little newborn happily. Alcmene tried to get a leg up on the situation (problem) and bring Hercules directly to Hera, leaving him on the doorstep of Olympus. "Hera unwittingly suckled the abandoned babe, but his superhuman strength caused he to cast the infant from her breast: The spittle of goddess-milk that ensued created the milky way."
