The movies vs. the real deal

Over the year film makers have made many types of movies that take aim at the greek god Hercules, take Disney for example there version is kid friendly compared to other movies who show our hero in bloody battles. The real story was that Hercules was a god when he was young but was sent to the mortal world to protect his people from the monsters and other creatures they faced.
