Hercules IS Greek and Hera is both sister and wife to Zeus. On a sidenote you locked the original thread..? A shame, will take some time to get used to the idea :)
I, for one, am dying to find out what colour they paint Michael's toenails.

Indeed. I wonder why Kalah thinks Herakles is roman? :|

I checked wiki and I think I know why.

Hercules is the Roman name for the mythical Greek hero Heracles, son of Zeus and the mortal Alcmena.
While adopting much of the Greek Heracles' iconography and mythology as his own, Hercules adopted a number of myths and characteristics that were distinctly Roman.


I was not aware that Hercules and Heracles was a different thing, I mean if you asked a Greek for his English name he'd reply Hercules. Interesting I'll have to check the Roman version.

From what I reed about it, the only difference is the name. Just as Hades. It's the Roman name for the Latin Pluto. Though Wiki says it's more, even wiki was made by humans.

Romans just took Greek mythology (as many others) and changed names of gods, nothing more:
Hermes - Mercury
Aphrodite - Venus
Selene - Luna
Ares - Mars
Zeus - Jupiter
Chronos - Saturn
Poseidon - Neptune
Hades - Pluto
and many more.

IIRC even roman mythology about Aeneas from Vergil's poem Aeneid is rip-off from Homer's Illiad and Odyssey.

My brother said the wireless on his laptop was broken for months and wanted me to take a look at it. When I opened the browser, everything was working smoothly. Guess I have magical Internet-fixing hands :D

I don't think that there hasn't been so much activity in the campfire as in the last 24 hours ^^

In Greek Mythology they WERE married. Hera is Zeus' Sixth Wife (Zeus had been married with other blood relatives of his befroe, including another of his siters Demeter)

If you read mythology You'll see at LOT of mistkes (some even fundamental) done in the Disney movie. I don't care too much about them, it's a Animation movie after all, it's not meant to be historically correct, it's men to be fun. :D

No, that would be Heracles. Hercules is the Latin name.

I've been hanging out with one of my friends all night and it's been loads of fun. He just left but right before he did, he asked if he could kiss me or if I would punch him if he did. Really weird. I said no. It's so weird, I just had to tell someone... 8|
